B.C. budget won’t fix years of neglect

The B.C. Liberals want you to forget that there is a deficit in the services that matter to you

Letter

To the editor:

Christy Clark claims her budget is balanced, but again it is on the backs of the poor and working class citizens. Her budget won’t fix years of neglect. And it won’t make up for Christy Clark slashing the services that British Columbians rely on.

The B.C. Liberals want you to forget that there is a deficit in the services that matter to you. They want you to forget that they closed hundreds of community schools.

Christy Clark wants you to forget that every education dollar in her pre-election budget is money she took from our children until her humiliating defeat in the Supreme Court of Canada forced her to put that money back.

She wants you to forget that nine in 10 seniors’ homes are understaffed, leaving our grandparents and parents without the attention and care they deserve.

British Columbians deserve leadership that works for everyone, not just the favoured few. People deserve a government that offers good quality services all the time, not just in the lead up to an election.
