Now that the time for promises has begun and our politicians are trying to get us to believe in them again, I have a few thoughts again about the whole affair.
At least one of the leaders is honest enough to admit that ‘politics in BC’ has become a dirty word. When I look at the situation in our own neck of the woods only one hopeful candidate has opened a campaign office in our town. If that is an indication of how much the electorate in our small town count to the rest of the parties, it’s a very sad state for our province. If the people of Princeton don’t, then how much do the people of other small towns count in the system of politics?
Personally, I don’t think that showing up one or two times for the “All Candidates Meeting” is little more than a slap in the face for most of us.
Oh well folks, we should be well trained already not to expect too much from our politicians when it comes to things like integrity, honesty and democracy, we can only hire our politicians and listen to a controversy and scandal until the next election.
The fact of the matter happens to be, when nothing changes, nothing will change.
