Ego before common sense?

Dear Mr. Premier,

It’s time you deflate your ego and get on with running this province.

You do not “speak for all British Columbians.”

As a matter of fact you were barely elected.

If not for a few misguided votes for the Green Party you would not be speaking for any of us, as you would be sitting in opposition.

You have eliminated thousands of good-paying jobs for hard-working British Columbians with your negative approach to energy projects. The residual effects of these projects could be felt for years for hundreds of people by creating permanent good-paying jobs.

You hide behind “saving the environment” as an excuse not to do anything. How about you stop the shipment of raw logs from this province? If you want to save the whales why not shut down the fishing industry for two years and let the stocks recover?

You have alienated our neighbours to the east by refusing to understand the necessity of delivering our natural resources to the rest of the world markets. We no longer attract new business to this province due to the negative reputation you and your government have created.

Use some common sense and listen to the people of B.C. If you don’t you will suffer the consequences in the next election.

Dave Emery
