LETTERS: Political names hide agendas

Editor:

Has anyone at Peace Arch News ever done an analysis of the BC Liberal party and how it was able to use that name, even though they have many of the Conservative values of the federal government?

It seems like false advertising and confuses a lot of voters.

Labels are important and sometimes designed to baffle. That is perhaps why the new unfair elections act by the federal government is called “Fair.”

We live in the land of opposites when marketers and publicists tinker with perceptions and sometimes create false realities. So we count on journalists to pursue the truth and reveal the wolf in sheep’s clothing.
