LETTERS: A slap to the face of taxpayers


Why is it that no senior B.C. governmental managers are disciplined or terminated for their glaring decisions or lack thereof?

Money-laundering at B.C. casinos, outrageous ICBC injury payouts and woeful fraud collections, flawed mine tailings storage-compliance processes and regulations, and now millions of dollars in B.C. securities fines uncollected.

We elect our politicians to, hopefully, show leadership and oversee the bureaucrats who control our everyday lives – so who’s really in control?

If the NDP-Green coalition is so much better than the Christy Clark Liberals, what the heck is going on with their HR management? A simple wrist slap or a never-to-be-seen letter to file is not only insufficient, it is a blatant slap to the faces of B.C. taxpayers.
