As the election draws closer and we find ourselves in the final month leading up to May 12, I want to invite you all to join the discussion. What is your issue? What do you want some answers about? What do you think deserves discussion?
I am going to start here today talking about ethical and responsible government. It probably comes as no surprise to anyone that has followed our current government over the past few elections that responsible government has not been a major concern. The reversal of an election promise resulting in the sale of BC Rail is one example. More troubling yet is the apparent involvement of Mr. Patrick Kinsella, the Liberal’s campaign co-chair. Gary Mason explains the troubling situation in a recent Globe and Mail Article HERE.
The Liberal governments Gag Law that was recently, in part, struck down by the BC Supreme Court as unconstitutional is another example. Sadly, the NDP was no better. Anyone rememberBingogate? Fast ferries?
A BC Conservative government will push for effective recall legislation, effectively allowing the voters a chance to recall any MLA that has been involved in unprofessional behaviour.
One of the greatest things about being a candidate for MLA for the BC Conservative Party is that I, as your MLA, if elected, can speak for YOU. The BC Conservative Party promotes FREE VOTES in the legislature for all of its MLAs. What does this mean to you? It means as your representative in Victoria I am encouraged to vote on behalf of my constituents, not to tow the party line. So what is more appealing to you? An MLA that speaks for your concerns, and votes accordingly or a few more years of being told what is best for you by the boys, and girls, in Victoria?
Talk to me friends, come May 12, what is your issue?
