Sad day as we look at our voting choices

Re: Liberal activity

Articles within your letters to the editor Friday edition, only seem to refer to their fiscal policies which are a mockery, that ultimately does much injustice to the citizens of British Columbia.

It is unfortunate that there only are two political parties asking for the right to govern its citizens, neither of which has shown any compunction to deliver to the public any just improvement.

The previous government run by minister Campbell sold off B.C rail for a pittance, our sawmills have disappeared like melting snow. Supplying others with our unprocessed lumber is also a monumental folly; all these happenings have mostly been enacted through Liberal expertise. Let us not forget about how the Liberals have handled our B.C Hydro system, another let my friends help you good people. How about a run of the mill river power, cheap as borscht; would you give them another chance to finish us off? As for the Conservatives, what is their list of achievements? Mr. Harper was a bully who led our country as though it was his own fiefdom. Who, if anybody, succeeded by improving their standard of living or even ours during his tenure? When they make it rain, perhaps I may consider a vote for the Green party!

Editor, we are hung up on the horns of a dilemma on who to vote for. Tis a sad day for sure.
