An NDP government would equal a have-not province

Joe Sawchuck thinks B.C. would become a have-not province if an NDP government were elected.


Provincial elections were held in Manitoba and Ontario in 2011.

One year before the election day and leading up to the election day, both incumbent governments were double digits behind the official opposition parties.  Both opposition parties were getting ready to form government in accordance with the ongoing polling.

On the actual election day in both provinces, both the incumbent governments were returned to government. Both opposition parties remained as the official opposition.

I believe that come voting day in B.C., taxpayers will have their say, but when voting will think that they would never take back a former spouse from a previous divorce, so why do it with government.

We know all governments are the same, but some are better than others.

B.C. is a province that must stay with coalition governments. Electing an NDP government would only put B.C. back to a have-not province, bankrupt and only lasting one term, making way to losing the election call to another coalition government that would have to make drastic unpopular decisions to clean up a mess after typical NDP governments.

Both Ontario and Saskatchewan have had it with the NDP provincial governments.

Saskatchewan’s government is a coalition government, and Ontario’s government is the Ontario Liberal party.

Today, Saskatchewan does not have one elected federal NDP member. Before the election in Saskatchewan, the official opposition party, the NDP, had 20 seats, and after the election, the taxpayers put them down to nine seats.

If B.C. were to elect an NDP government, then some of the taxpayers who collect their paycheque every second Friday from a business corporation would have to go down to their nearest E.I. office to file a claim because that is what happens when the NDP is elected.

Business does not have to invest their dollars in NDP territory, and because of that, layoffs must happen.

In summary, just imagine if taxpayers voted for who they wanted. That is, voting for the delegate they want and not voting to keep one party from forming government and visa versa.

You can say that if this happened, the provincial government elected on voting day would be a minority government.
