Is the NDP the answer for British Columbia?
Keeping quiet seems to be the only strategy the BC NDP has.
While Adrian Dix supported removing the HST, his qualifying statement came after the vote.
The NDP has always had hugely influenced ties by big unions, an antithesis of the Liberals’ ties to big business. Neither position is good for B.C. in our turbulent times. Is it a question of the lesser of two evils as often said?
Neither evil works.
While Dix, NDP leader, talks about eliminating donations from unions and big business, an idea he seems to have borrowed from the BC First political organization, why has he not imposed this on the NDP?
Is Dix saying this while collecting donations from unions?
Could this be just another “sounds good to voters” platform promise that may likely disappear if the NDP are elected with a majority?
The silence of the NDP is unusal as they will not give a position statement on how they would handle the BCTF union demands. … They should let B.C. know their intentions and include the huge numbers of unionized public sector workers. If the BCTF gets a raise in these tough economic times, the rest of the public sector will get the same… hundreds of millions more for the taxpayers to fund in tough times.
Is the local NDP candidate still here?
It is not unusual to hear nothing from him.
Can’t he answer some pertinent questions about taxes, union affiliations and donations (note where his contributions came from last election), health-care reforms, RCMP behaviour and contracts, Site C, the degrading of the B.C. utilities commission, and the proposed Taseko mine at Fish Lake? How would the NDP revitalize and reform forestry management? Just a few important matters to be answered. If the NDP can’t deal with these problems then they should not hold any influence in our B.C. government.
