Editor, The Times:
It was very nice to read your editorial from last week “Please take the time to vote during the provincial election on Tuesday” in the May 9 issue.
You gave both sides of politics an equal mention, thank you. It seems as if the main stream media (MSM) for the last few years are so one-sided that they could tip a battleship. There are many stories that the people of B.C. should be hearing from them but are not told.
Also, and the icing on the cake, with a big cherry on the top, was your mention of the Swiss style of governing. We in B.C. have a voice once every four years and between elections.
With the whip system we have a four-year dictator, regardless of party in power.
Bill VanderZalm and our own Bud Smith drafted up the recall referendum in order to give us a voice. Harcourt’s NDP lawyers spent four long years changing this so it is as it is today unworkable for the people to use.
Anyhow, again, thanks for the good editorial.
