Letters: Fed up with many things about MLA

I am in full support of the recall campaign for MLA Marc Dalton.

Editor, The News:

I am in full support of the recall campaign for MLA Marc Dalton. How can Dalton say he represents his constituents, the citizens who voted him in, when he ran and sat as a Liberal?

Now he sits as an independent while he tries to get a Conservative MP seat. If that fails he will flop back to the B.C. Liberal party.

I am done being concerned. I am fed up.

I’m fed up with long hospital and ambulance wait times; fed up with our underfunded education system; fed up with increased park fees.

The Iron Horse Youth Safe House emergency shelter beds were shut down. Where was he?

What has he done to improve road safety along Lougheed Highway? I am done being concerned and I add my voice to those who support the Recall of MLA Marc Dalton.
