Re: Gov't should reach out, Letters, Burnaby NOW, March 8.
Donald Leung's letter regarding the B.C. Liberal ethnic vote scandal is entirely wrongheaded. The B.C. Liberal ethnic vote scandal has nothing to do with reaching out to B.C.'s ethnic communities. Rather it is a cynical and insincere attempt to garner votes by apologizing for historical wrongdoings. This is clearly demonstrated in the leaked email, which employs such terms as "quick wins," when referring to the proposed apologies. Moreover, this B.C. Liberal ploy was conducted by taxpayer-funded workers, some working out of the premier's office. It beggars belief that Mr. Leung should attempt to clumsily compare this outrage to the B.C. NDP's worthy attempt to bring gender equality to the political realm.
Perhaps Mr. Leung should read the relevant documentation before proffering his ill-informed opinions.
