Former Maple Ridge councillor Corisa Bell is throwing her hat in the ring to run at the provincial government level. (The News files)

LETTER: Questioning reason why candidates run for Liberal nod

Reader wonders why former Maple Ridge councillor and a former MP are running for provincial politics

Dear Editor,

[RE: Three competing to be BC Liberal candidate in Maple Ridge-Mission, March 5, The News]

It was my understanding that Corisa Bell withdrew from the political scene because there was “too much politics in politics.”

READ RELATE: Bell won’t seek third term on Maple Ridge council

Maybe a larger paycheque will make all the politicking worthwhile.

While it looks like Dan Ruimy is just looking for a steady paycheque.

How else can one explain a federal Liberal becoming essentially a provincial conservative.

Does the word hypocrite come to mind?

Rod Moritz, Maple Ridge
