BC Lib’s should pay own freight on retreat

Liberal retreat amounted to a paid vacation, reader says.

To the editor,

The BC Liberal Caucus held a retreat in Harrison Hot Springs and taxpayers pick up the tab once again.

I speculate that the cost of this venue will be very expensive and will be another example of how our tax dollars are being spent.

A question for the Liberals: how much did it cost? You forgot to provide us with a financial breakdown.

A paid vacation at an expensive resort is something that most of us can’t afford because we are being taxed to death or have limited disposable income.

Next time government officials might consider paying their own way; we are tired of “Dutch treat” at the taxpayers’ expense. Lead by example: be frugal with our money and if you insist that we pay for it, consider renting a local community centre and bring your own lunch.
