Alta. NDP win bad for B.C.

NDP win in Alberta not good news for B.C. party, says letter writer.

To the Editor,

John Horgan says that he is pleased that the NDP won government in Alberta.

John now has a couple of problems on his hands because of this NDP win in Alberta.  One is that the new NDP premier, Rachel Notley wants the Kinder Morgan pipeline to be built.

John Horgan on the other hand does not want this pipeline to be built.

A bad report card two years from now, the same year as a B.C. election will have to be absorbed by John Horgan and the B.C. NDP, once again keeping the B.C. NDP in opposition status.

Joe Sawchuk,
