Sawchuk’s letter filled with nonsense
Reading Joe Sawchuk’s letter on Wednesday [March 11 was surreal.
First, he seems convinced that in the midst of billion dollar deficits ICBC and BC Hydro were swimming in cash and not drowning in debt.
Next, he believes that the BC Liberals were actually balancing the budget rather than playing shell games with the deficit.
Then he argues that instead of taxes, inflated hydro bills and insurance premiums should be use to fund general expenses like healthcare and education.
Last, he says that the NDP’s actually balanced budget is a lie because if they didn’t balance the budget the budget would not be balanced.
There are many questions but one in particular has truly confounded me: why did the Citizen print this nonsense?
