Daycare dollars don't fix problem

To the Editor,

Re: Parents offered daycare money, Aug. 5.

Here’s yet another in the ever-growing, too-long line of B.C. Liberal blockhead ideas. Even being notarized with a 100 per cent guarantee, it would still not be worth the recycled paper that it’s printed on.

The B.C. teachers are only using the students as political pawns in their game of chess against the B.C. government. It will be the students who are being unjustly caught between the two antagonistic forces, losing out to their rights to have their education.

If I’m the premier of B.C., the teachers would be going back to work and be most grateful that they have jobs that are well paid, with benefits, even more so with this economic recession  If you do not like it, well, there’s always the exit door.
