To the Editor,
Re: Government change eagerly awaited, Letters, May 5.
Isn’t it amazing how one can perceive only the promises of the NDP without looking at the reality?
The last NDP government gave us ridiculous wage concessions, the fast cat ferry fiasco and a surplus that did not really exist except on paper.
Every time the NDP is elected in B.C. due to the promises of expanded social spending, reduced taxation except for the wealthy and, of course, no progressive legislation to increase our industrial tax base, the economy goes into the toilet.
There is no easy answer for the worldwide economic problems, but the NDP is certainly not a viable choice.
