Tom Fletcher’s interesting column compels me to write. Somewhat dismissively you suggest that voters want “change” on the provincial political scene.
You highlight the names of Judy Darcy and George Heyman as candidates for the NDP as if there is something untoward in them running for office.
I couldn’t disagree with you more. As both of them have a long history of championing the rights of working taxpayers at the HEU and BCGEU, Darcy and Heyman are exact the sort of people we need in the Legislature representing us.
They know the issues of working people; hospital workers, child care workers, and construction workers.
If after 11 years in office the Liberals had improved the lot of working families such as with an affordable daycare system, then perhaps we would not so desperately need the “change” you refer to.
