Libs defame all who run

Editor:

The BC Liberal Party should think twice about its campaign to discredit BC Conservative leader John Cummins. Bringing attention to “unprincipled politicians” cuts many ways, and the Liberals appear to be the kettle calling the pot black.

The BC Liberal Party should think twice about its campaign to discredit BC Conservative leader John Cummins. Bringing attention to “unprincipled politicians” cuts many ways, and the Liberals appear to be the kettle calling the pot black.

I do not agree with much of Cummins’ political agenda, but I do welcome him and his party in joining the political discourse.

BC Greens believe that this province needs more democracy, not less, and citizens should be encouraged to support any party that reflects their views.

The Liberal attack ads only further defame those who choose politics as the vehicle to build a better future and hurts all parties’ ability to get the “principled” to run for office.

The result is too many “yes people” and too few willing to stand by their principles.
