LETTERS: Best possible outcome

The results of the provincial election will soon be finalized.


The results of the provincial election will soon be finalized.

A minority government would be the best possible scenario for B.C. This is the only way to have accountability in the legislature. After Dave Barrett’s NDP government we have had five Premiers resign, which indicates that we have had very poor leaders in this province, and Gordon Campbell was the worst, in my opinion, and he was rewarded with honours and a top diplomatic posting and a lot of money. Disgraceful. and Christy Clark has been terrible, continuing a tradition of corruption and greed.

There will be justice in the Mount Polley mining disaster, and the truth will be learned, about the negligence and error that caused the toxic pollution of Quesnel Lake. The Kinder-Morgan pipeline will be reconsidered, and government will no longer cater to industry, with their mindless chant of “jobs and the economy” and “economic development.”

There is a better way to do business here, with people being a priority, instead of continuing the rape and pillage of our natural resources, without any consideration for our environment and the First Nations. Creating work in our forests and developing our secondary industries would be a good start, something that should have been done 50 years ago.

Enough of the crooks and thieves that have been running our province.
