NDP were disaster in BC

You definitely hit the nail on the head in your editorial on the NDP needing a business course.

Dear editor,

You definitely hit the nail on the head in your editorial on the NDP needing a business course.

It is a sad situation when anyone tries to run a business without knowledge on how it should be done. Sadly, the NDP are lacking this important trait. Our prime minister fits into the same category.

I lived in BC for two years when the NDP were in control. It didn’t take long to wreak havoc on the forestry and fishing industries. This led to high unemployment in many areas.

Here in Alberta it affects every business because when you don’t have a job, what do you lose? Everything you are still making payments on eventually, and your total way of life.

I moved back to Alberta and now we are facing the same irresponsibility with the same government in control. I hope those who voted NDP have had their eyes opened.

I have four grandchildren who are trying desperately to find work so they can continue their college in the fall. Others are job sharing.

We are experiencing a high increase in break and enters even in our small rural areas.

Is our government so uneducated they don’t know the meaning of recession?

Vera Raugust, Thorsby
