As we are heading to another round of promises from our “Politicians,” I think we should go back to the promises from the last elections.
First thing that comes to mind is the “Hated Sales Tax”, and how the premier at the time was sent to exile with the Royalties in the UK to think about his actions. Some new kind of punishment don’t you think? While our politicians are using big words, integrity, honesty, honour, represent and even a word like democracy, I am thinking of words like, inept, corrupt and deceitful, their big pensions, perks, prestige and power. Since the last election I have come to the conclusion that not even one politician we elected at last election can be trusted and definitely not honourable, as they like to be called. We are the people who are doing the hiring, so why are we letting them forget who the real bosses are in British Columbia?
One of the heroes of freedoms and the democracy, Gandhi once said, “be the change you wish to see in the world”. We did fight the “Hated Sales Tax,” and won, but our politicians have not learned a thing from it.
