Media not supplying facts to electorate

To the Editor,

Finance Minister Kevin Falcon resigns and the B.C. media starts the propaganda that he is leaving because the B.C. Liberal government is a sinking ship.

It forgets to mention that two Nova Scotia NDP ministers resigned for personal reasons. The premier does not blow a gasket, just has a cabinet shuffle and life goes on.

Here in B.C., the media is saying that it is time for a change of government because the B.C. Liberals have been in government for 11 years. Reporters don’t mention that it is OK for Alberta keeping the Conservatives in government for 41 years, the NDP in Manitoba for 13 years, the Liberals in Ontario for 10 years, the Liberals in Quebec for nine years, and the Conservatives in Newfoundland and Labrador for nine years.

How come it is always OK in other Canadian provinces but never OK in B.C.?

The time has come that the B.C. media start mentioning facts for comparison purposes and using reality before propaganda remarks are made.

The taxpayers have the final say on who will govern, and they should not be marking their voting ballots based on B.C. media propaganda.
