BC media sinks Liberal ship, not deserting MLAs

Falcon's resignation started the propaganda, Duncan writer states

To the Editor,

Finance minister Kevin Falcon resigns and the B.C. media starts the propaganda that he is leaving because the B.C. Liberal government is a sinking ship. They forget to mention that Graham Steele, the NDP finance minister in Nova Scotia, an icon, resigned in the third year of their mandate. Steele’s saying his departure is driven by personal consideration and an internal clock that chimes for a career change.

Bill Estabrook, the NDP Minister of Transportation, a five-term elected candidate also resigns because of advanced Parkinson’s disease.  The premier does not blow a gasket, just has a cabinet shuffle and life goes on.

Here in B.C., the media is saying that it is time for a change of government because the B.C. Liberals have been in government for 11 years. They don’t mention that it is okay for Alberta keeping the Conservatives in government for 41 years, the NDP in Manitoba for 13 years, the Liberals in Ontario for 10 years, the Liberals in Quebec for nine years, and the Conservatives in Newfoundland and Labrador for nine years.

How come it is always okay in other Canadian provinces but never okay in B.C.?

Joe Sawchuk,

Duncan
