I couldn't agree more with what you said in your editorial column [Toxicity killing our democracy, Nov. 20 Opinion, TIMES].
Our democracy is made to look like a joke when you have the premier cancelling the fall session of the legislature because she doesn't want to be bothered with answering questions in the house.
Then we find out that her staff is busy working on negative election material, and not the affairs of the government, all the while being paid with our tax dollars.
This is despicable, and this premier does not even have a mandate from the citizen's of B.C. to govern. 0To get that you must call an election.
But she won't, because she knows that she'll be tossed out of government.
So instead, she hangs in, refusing to call the election, and spends our tax dollars running her election campaign, creating negative ads against her opponent. This is a disgrace, and what has happened to our democracy?
Call the election now, and let the people decide!
