Letter: Change for better or worse?

Just look around. Our standard of living is better than anywhere in North America.

To the editor:

Do we need a change? Think about it.

Twelve years ago, small businesses were going under and jobs were hard to find. Our young people were moving out in big numbers. Today, businesses are moving into B.C. and investing in our province, creating jobs.

Twelve years ago, B.C. had one of the worst credit ratings in Canada. Today B.C.’s credit rating is AAA, one of the best in Canada.

Twelve years ago, our personal income tax was among the highest in Canada. Today our personal income tax is one of the lowest in Canada.

Just look around. Our standard of living is better than anywhere in North America.

Do we need a change? No. Let’s not go backwards again. Let’s go with what we’ve got and vote Liberal.

N. Assam,
