Why foreign workers?

Re: Jobs minister pays a visit to local MLA (The News, Feb. 8).
I had to comment on the recent visit of the B.C. Liberal jobs minister Pat Bell. Boy, oh Boy, can these dudes spin an incredible web of lies and deceit for the public.
It seems that these politicians can just say whatever they want to try and deceive the public leading up to the next election.
I’ll give you one clear example of their lies and deceit from right here in Maple Ridge.
Take the Golden Ears Bridge project, for which they were using lower paid foreign workers, who, when their subcontractor failed to pay them, the government had to step in to get these workers their back pay, so that they could return back home.
The situation begs the question; why bring these foreign workers all the way over here when they are so many British Columbian’s desperately in need of the work?
And, the ridiculous ads that the premier is running, once again trying to dupe the citizen’s of this province into believing what a great job she’s doing.
Are people that dumb and blind that they cannot see through these election campaign ads, which are being footed by us, the taxpayers of B.C.?
Enjoy doing your taxes this year and think about how much you’re paying for Christy Clark and her lovely ads.
