NDP/Green al­liance of­fers mea­sure of hope

Times Colonist - - Comment -

Oh, how sweet it is to fi­nally have a gov­ern­ment in B.C. that is lis­ten­ing to the av­er­age per­son. I can’t quite de­cide who I was more thank­ful to see the back of — Stephen Harper or Christy Clark. Canada’s strengths are in its car­ing at­ti­tude, its in­clu­sive­ness and di­ver­sity, the to­tal op­po­site of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s world of di­vi­sive­ness, bul­ly­ing, grand­stand­ing and ly­ing that is caus­ing so much dis­sention in the so-called United States of Amer­ica.

Let’s hope in B.C. now we can travel down a more mea­sured, re­spect­ful path that will be to the ben­e­fit all cit­i­zens. Over the past 16 years, far too many have fallen behind or to­tally given up on so­ci­ety. The NDP/Green al­liance has given a lit­tle bit of hope to many who for far too long have been ig­nored.
