I'm not old enough to remember the 1990s, but I know many adults who do remember that time and how badly the NDP mismanaged the provincial economy. They also remember how Adrian Dix was fired as Glen Clark's top aide after it was discovered that he had forged a memo and then lied about it to the RCMP.
What surprises me, though, is that so many people my age are unaware of what went on in B.C. during the 1990s. That lack of awareness could have devastating consequences for this province if the NDP is elected to ruin the province all over again.
So I want to say thank you to those people and organizations who are taking steps to ensure everyone in this province is aware of what Adrian Dix is really all about and are making sure everyone is fully informed about his record in government. Failing to learn the lessons of the recent past will doom us to the same consequences suffered in the 1990s if we do not wake up and heed the warning signs that are there to be seen.
