Sour grapes look green – and NDP

  •  updated Jun 26, 2017 at 2:24 PM

So let me get this straight, recent letters complain that the NDP and Greens are subverting democracy by taking their collective 57 per cent of the popular vote in B.C. and imposing themselves on the other 40 per cent so that the majority is better represented. By definition, democracy is rule by the people for the people based on an electoral majority. "First past the post" invariably ends up with a party in power with 35-40 per cent of the popular vote and governing with a "majority." In this case, the two left-wing parties outnumber the right-wing party so that the so-called "Liberal" Party cannot guarantee to be able to govern without help. How to move forward?

  •  updated Jun 26, 2017 at 2:34 PM

We are writing this letter because we need people to slow down in school zones. Last week, one of our parents was in a bad car accident turning into our school. She was shaken up and her car destroyed. She told us that if we had been crossing the road, we would have been really, really hurt, or even worse.
