Vote for best can­di­date, rather than a par­rot

The Daily Courier - - OPINION -

Ed­i­tor: True democ­racy may be an unattainable ideal, but elec­tions give or­di­nary Bri­tish Columbians an op­por­tu­nity to in­flu­ence the fu­ture pri­or­i­ties and moral stan­dards of our pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment.

The qual­i­ties and skills of a can­di­date are more im­por­tant than his or her party af­fil­i­a­tion.

Don’t thought­lessly vote for a glib, self-serv­ing op­por­tunist who par­rots party pro­pa­ganda in an ef­fort to fur­ther the in­ter­ests of an elite few.

Sup­port the prin­ci­pled prag­ma­tist who has a track record of ac­tively and com­pe­tently served your com­mu­nity.

As cur­rent world events re­veal, democ­racy needs nur­tur­ing and our par­tic­i­pa­tion is es­sen­tial.

Lloyd Atkins, Ver­non
