LETTER: Party’s history not forgotten

I see the BC United party has a new advertisement bashing NDP policies and offering fixes to various issues. Seems quite ironic given the drivers of B.C. were “fixed” by leader Kevin Falcon’s old party (BC Liberals) to the tune of $1.2 billion being taken from ICBC and put into general revenue to show a later proven false and deceitful balanced budget.

This occurred from 2009 to 2016 and yet, as a Liberal MLA since 2001 and the deputy premier and minister of finance for 2011 and 2012, Mr. Falcon agreed with and authorized this action. He may want to look for a new vocation as we remember who he was then and who he is now.

You can change your party name but not your stripes and the people of B.C. won’t be fooled a second time. History shows we don’t need these kinds of “fixes” and deserve better than BC United offers.
