B.C. Liberal government busy tooting its own horn

I can’t help but notice all of the B.C. Liberal spending on advertising lately.

To the Editor,

I can’t help but notice all of the B.C. Liberal spending on advertising lately. And the recent photo-ops to hand out money to places long ignored by this government. Must be an election coming.

These TV ads are as annoying and an unproductive waste of our money as when the federal Conservatives over-ran our airwaves with them.

I see these as only more deflection tactics from Premier Christy Clark, in order to make it OK for her mega-project spending to go ahead even though B.C.ers say no.

And how insulting it has become to be told that our opinions have turned us into a bunch of chronic naysayers who need some sort of counselling to convert us into saying yes on these unnecessary and harmful projects.

The B.C. Liberals can stomp their feet and form a coalition to force ‘yes’ – but without the help of our strong scientific-based environmental community and First Nations, keepers of the land.

Is our election in B.C. going to be as agonizingly drawn-out as it took to get rid of the federal wannabe dictators?
