The vote is in…

The voters of British Columbia can be proud of the May 14, 2013 election results


The voters of British Columbia can be proud of the May 14, 2013 election results that saw us elect government rather than our traditional polarized politics that throws government out.

To the pollsters and the NDP, the outcome showed the result of strong  work ethics and the consistent message of the need for a strong economy from Christy Clark.

As a long time supporter of the NDP I had to quit and proudly joined the Liberal party and worked hard to help ensure the Liberal vision for the province.

I know a strong economy is needed to support services we need without raising income  tax.

Never assume the colour of an election sign will win an election over hard work and a Leader that has the ability and vision to lead this Province.

Now that the election is over,  I hope the NDP will work with Christy Clark and collectively move this province forward for the benefit of all, rather than a special interest group that is a minority of the working class in British Columbia.

As a retiree I was proud to work 30 days straight at 12 or more hours per day for no pay as the Liberals  were the only party with a clear vision.

Lots of other volunteers also endorsed and worked hard for our kids and grand kids.

Great job to all that voted to take part of the democratic process. Someday, somebody will write a book on this historical  election.
