Letter: No time to be lazy or nonchalant Kelowna

It is time to stop the tax giveaways to millionaires and invest in people instead


To the editor:

Soon British Columbians will be casting their ballots in the most important election of all times.

After 16 years of BC Liberal neglect, we finally have a chance to have a changing of the guard and build with new leaders a province where no one gets left behind. There is no time for do-overs. The NDP has slowly been building riding associations where the citizens come first and not the big money boys (and greedy corporations). Every choice we make now determines what happens on election day.

Every day, we are paying more and getting less. It is time to stop the tax giveaways to millionaires and invest in people instead.

We cannot afford another four more years of Christy Clark.

I am glad to see so many neighbors joining together to get involved. I think they see what’s happened south of the border and realize it is not a time to be lazy or nonchalant.

Susan Davenport, West Kelowna
