To the Editor,
Re: Voters still remember follies of 90s NDP, Letters, May 18.
In response to Dave Cansell’s reasoning why the NDP did not pull out a victory, I agree about the weak leadership choice.
But taking a stand against “big oil” is a risk that needs to be taken as our corrupt governments in power right now do nothing to stop the sale of Canada’s finite natural resources to China and other developing worlds creating useless consumer goods, trinkets and plastic toys, and inferior products.
The temporary jobs that would be created keep people employed for a few years, but most will be brought in from other provinces and countries for the work.
Having a political party in power that puts out minimal effort or resources to emerging technology to create a better province to live in is what we need to lead us into the future and help create a better place for our kids and grandchildren.
We don’t need a political party selling off everything like a Sunday yard sale.
