Reeling from the HST fiasco, the Port Mann Bridge ice-bomb debacle and now Ethnicgate, the B.C. Liberal Party has imploded electorally and will lose power in the upcoming provincial election.
Let's face it, they will be lucky to hold on to more than 10 seats.
This means that unless free enterprise voters rally around an alternative party, we are going to have a disastrous return of the NDP to power in B.C.
This time NDP leader Adrian Dix is keeping his cards close to his chest. Yet based on the history of previous NDP governments in B.C., we can be sure the economy will take a back burner to new job-killing taxes, deficit hikes and debt-piling.
The only hope now for free enterprise supporters and economic growth boosters to elect a like-minded government is to support John Cummins and the Conservative Party of B.C.
Untainted by Liberal scandals, the Conservative Party stands a chance of forming the next provincial government if we recognize the futility of voting Liberal.
