John Horgan is helping John Horgan

To the Editor,

Great letter Mary! I would like to add a quote from the Sept. 30 issue of Kamloops This Week regarding Sadie Hunter, the NDP candidate for Kamloops-North Thompson.

“She chose to run for the NDP because she has been impressed with the government’s response to (the) COVID-19 pandemic, and helping to facilitate the Canfor forest licence tenure in the North Thompson Valley to ensure it included public benefits.”

Now if that isn’t the biggest pack of crap then I don’t know what is! All the NDP has done with their ridiculous policies is sell Clearwater down the river along with the forest industry in B.C.

How many mills have closed in B.C. since the NDP has been in power?

As for John Horgan’s popularity, any party in power would be popular when they are handing out money as if it were growing on trees. By calling an election during a pandemic, and when there is a year left before it was due, actually shows what a low-life snake in the grass he really is.

By doing so he also broke a signed contract with the Green Party that enabled him to become Premier. No, John Horgan is not helping “all” British Columbians; John Horgan is helping John Horgan.

The NDP is very quick to run down the previous 16 years of Liberal government. Maybe they should think back to the nine-and-a-half years of NDP government, from 1991 to 2001, after which the people of B.C. voted out the NDP and left them with only two seats in Parliament.

Anyone who puts politics ahead of a pandemic deserves to be punished at the polls. It only goes to show that you can put lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig!
