Government accounting and Site C

It remains to say, please don’t ask to be my accountant!

Government accounting and Site C

One of the letter contributors to this paper stated that the B.C Liberals, who on being relieved of their onerous duties as (MLAs) did leave in the public kitty some $2.8 billion as surplus to our needs.

To be truthful, this requires a magical stretch of the imagination. I am unable to figure how such a fiscal program could acquire such wealth, when the previous government spent every penny in one form or another in the form of baksheesh donated to those who promoted their agenda.

It remains to say, please don’t ask to be my accountant!

As for Site ‘C’, that is now a conundrum for the present government to ponder, flooding arable land when “we” will soon need it to grow our own vegetables due in part to the lack of water in California. This part of the equation must be paramount with all considerations to the present deliberations.
