To the editor:
Bill Vander Zalm successfully spearheaded the defeat of the HST (even though collectively it would have been likely more beneficial overall). It was the way it was forced on the people that was its defeat.
Praise to Bill Vander Zalm from the people.
His next battle front should be removal of government involvement in insurance.
ICBC is a biased one-sided bureaucracy that needs to be in the hands of the private sector.
We should have choices and free market competition. The government only needs to oversee its fair interpretation.
Lastly, if Bill would have the energy and strength to pursue one more battle, can we please remove B.C. liquor stores and give them to the private sector. Have we learned nothing from our neighbours in Alberta? They have successfully done both of the above and free enterprise has done the rest.
It is not the place of government to be involved in these avenues.
Time to move into the 21 century of world business.
