Liberals bent on destroying Hydro

To the Editor,

Re: B.C. Hydro deferring expenses to bolster provincial coffers, Nov. 5.

To be perfectly clear, money from Hydro is money from consumers. Fudging the books is fudging the books.

Let’s start by not wasting $1 billion on stupid meters and let’s do away with these compensation packages and bonuses that no one but those benefactors agree are warranted.

B.C. Hydro does not need to make money, it only needs to cover its costs and provide affordable power to the owners of B.C. Hydro – B.C. taxpayers. The money saved to those taxpayers will be spent in other ways benefiting B.C.’s economy.

In the near future this Liberal government will be talking privatization of B.C. Hydro or public and private partnership agreements, as they are systematically destroying B.C. Hydro in order to justify selling it off.

You can bet your bottom dollar the business community reaching a partnership with the government will only do so if it is profitable for them, again at the ratepayers’ expense.

Call an election, stop smart meters, have a referendum and put an end to corruption in politics.

Gordon Campbell became drunk on on power and Christy Clark is following his lead. Let’s not rule out recall.
