Families not first in B.C.

B.C. Premier Christy Clark is full of beans when it comes to Families First, one reader says.

To the Editor,

Christy Clark’s Families First program is exposing the heart of her corporate cash grubbing partisan vision for stripping the social foundations out of B.C. Her administration is continuing the dislocation of families as begun under Campbell.

The Cowichan Lodge residents killed by the privatization move to a 3-Ps incarceration still in memory, Clark is now unsettling the lives of mobile seniors with a costly, demoralizing DriveABLE program.

This is designed to incarcerate driving seniors in their homes. One could guess that soon they are intended to become candidates for the stripping of their assets by B.C. trustees to assure that there are no estates left to potential family heirs.

Isn’t B.C. still a province with a high child poverty rate?

The Families First appears to mean they are to be deprived of family assets first.  Perhaps B.C. families would be better off if we had a similar BC Liberals First program instead.
