Voters had other priorities, I guess

Editor, The News:

Re: Deceit is the key to propaganda (Along the Fraser, Feb. 14).

Jack Emberly’s hyperbolic column comparing the Gulf War soldiers, Tokyo Rose and Lord Haw Haw of Second World War infamy to the BCTF (front line troops?) negotiations is absurd.

B.C. school enrollment has declined each year since 2001. There are 70,000 fewer students since that time.

When comparisons are made between  the BCTF, wars and George Orwell’s 1984, people stop listening.

Also, if the NDP’s Adrian Dix promised renewed yearly funding of $265 million before the election, why wasn’t his party elected?

I guess the voters had other priorities.
