Study numbers, not your salary

B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix should review the by-election data results instead of making outrageous comments about landside NDP victories.

To the Editor,

On April 23, Adrian Dix stood in the legislature mentioning a comment about the landside NDP victories in by-elections in Port Moody-Coquitlam and Chilliwack-Hope.

Maybe if he would do his homework and analyze the results, he would slow down on his jumping from the hip attitude.

In the Port Moody-Coquitlam 2009 election, the NDP came in second place with 7,614 votes, with a total of 19,134 taxpayers casting ballots. In the 2012 by election, the NDP came in first place with 6,070 votes with a total of 11,167 taxpayers casting ballots.

I ask Adrian, what happened to the other 7,967 taxpayers that did not cast ballots?

Dix is paid $152,789  to be an MLA. With such a good paying job, couldn’t he at least review the by-election data results instead of making outrageous comments about landside NDP victories?

Joe Sawchuk,

Duncan
