Political Right?

The debate between NDP left and Liberal right is irrelevant

I suppose if you are teetering on the extreme edge of the political spectrum as letter writer Scott Anderson appears to be all other parties are necessarily to your left.

Actually, the whole left/right socialist/free enterprise rhetoric should be laid to rest.

The NDP is not against free enterprise and its policies and practices hardly resemble anything that might be called socialism.

Free enterprise, as Conservatives and BC Liberals appear to understand it, means a free hand for large corporations to exploit the province’s resources largely freed of taxes and environmental and social constraints.

What all three parties and their advocates need to do leading up to the next election is to inform us of their intentions.

Dispense with left/right rhetoric and scare tactics. Tell us what your party would like to do for the people of British Columbia.
