To the Editor,
Re: Secret ballots must remain, Letters, Sept. 15.
It would seem that thwarting democracy is a big part of the Adrian Dix/NDP agenda.
The union-backed Dix was once chief of staff to former premier Glen Clark, the far-left premier who demolished the B.C. economy – and his own party – during a three-year period in the late 1990s.
It was Dix who was involved in forging a memo to cover for Clark in the “casino kickback scandal.”
Although he was fired, he still collected a handsome severence package. Clark resigned and the NDP got booted in the 2001 election.
But yet, if the polls are correct, it’s Dix and the NDP who B.C. voters want for their next government. Go figure. I think it was George Santayana who said “A country without a memory is a country of madmen.”
If B.C. voters opt for the manipulative politics but irresponsible fiscal policies of the NDP, it would create an interesting paradox since they voted in but then drove former premier Gordon Campbell out of the province.
Campbell’s politics left much to be desired, but his fiscal policies were highly praised by many notable economists, in direct contrast to the NDP.
Only in B.C. you say?
