People don’t sell their cars, homes to pay bills

This government has done nothing but sell, privatize and give away our assets, one by one.

Editor, The News:

Re: B.C. in red, but back in black next year (The News, Feb. 22).

I have just listened to the B.C. Liberal government’s 2012 budget speech.

I am horrified that you intend to sell our last remaining assets. People don’t sell their car, furniture and house to pay their bills.

The B.C. government is elected to look after British Columbia’s best interests.

This government has done nothing but sell, privatize and give away our assets, one by one.

No one ever gave you permission to do that.

You are supposed to be the stewards of the province, not the destroyers.

You people have undone nearly everything in 11 years that previous governments have been building up since 1858.

Enough is enough. Call the election.

If you truly believe that British Columbians support your systematic dismantling, then you shouldn’t have to worry about getting re-elected.
