Dix at BC’s wheel is a deal

NDP's Adrian Dix lacks business-based managerial skills and could inadvertently make some terrible mistakes.

To the Editor,

BC’s government is a sprawling service-based business with an enormous budget and a huge number of employees.

Mister Dix lacks business-based managerial skills and could inadvertently make some terrible mistakes. Hopefully Mister Dix knows his own limitations and will not allow the NDP’s socialistic exuberance to contort into know-it-all stupidity.

As someone once commented, the government cannot give anything to anybody that it doesn’t first take from somebody else.

If Adrian Dix does become the premier, and then drives our province even further into the ditch of fiscal mismanagement, middle-of-the-road British Columbians will not allow a leader of the NDP to sit in the driver’s seat of this province for a long long time.

In spite of misgivings about Adrian “Left Wheeler” Dix, I would rather have him at the wheel for the next four years than Christy ‘Fender Bender’ Clark.

Lloyd Atkins,

Vernon, B.C.
