I have become increasingly aware of the lack of basic common sense among our elected politicians.
How else can you explain the closure of the coast guard station; the lack of a decent bus/rail service in Surrey - when millions have been spent on advertising; millions spent on an awards ceremony for an Indian Film Festival (when our own industry is moribund); and last week the announcement of $4 million to restore the old horse barns at the PNE?
We are in desperate need of new, pragmatic leadership. I, along with other seniors, will not miss visiting the polling booths in May. I urge all younger generations to become aware of how our province is being run, educate yourselves - and wake up and smell the coffee. You can make a difference - get out and vote!
