B.C.'s Attorney General finally released his damning report disclosing how MLAs are playing loosy-goosy with their expenses and other monies, and it should have the public enraged.
Why does this scandalous situation not equal the outcry a $16 glass of orange juice created? Is it because both the New Democratic Party and the Liberal Party have acted equally irresponsible?
Voters will hopefully remember at the next trip to the polls that the attorney general's recommendations of five years ago are only looked at now because of a more general disclosure.
But where is the public outrage? Fortunately voters now have a choice!
One of the first concerns of the new leader of the B.C. Conservative Party, Mr. John Cummins, is integrity.
This became absolutely clear in a speech delivered by our only sitting MLA, Mr. John van Dongen, when he addressed attendees at a recent fundraiser in Burnaby.
Those opposed to the carbon tax, the bankrolling of political parties by corporations or unions, and those concerned about public safety and getting our spending under control should seriously consider voting for the B.C. Conservative Party in the provincial election.
Ariane Eckhardt, Burnaby North riding president, B.C. Conservative Party
