Time after time many posters have given examples of the promise changes, lies, and failures of the current government.

Anyone who thinks the NDP is doing a great job, at anything other than helping themselves to our tax money, has to be mentally challenged.

after what we have seen for the last 16 years - im not interested in the double standard that we see from too many here. i measure the ndp with the same brush that was acceptable for the liberals for 16 years. the bar was set by them. and if at the moment the bar seems low - that is not the NDPs fault. im sure that as time goes by the bar will be raised - if necessary. if it isnt - that is politics and business as usual. regardless of who it is in power.

In unison with the tax grabs I'm sure !

A bar that the mentally/fiscally challenged NDP can never hope to get close too.

In other words, he can't make a list of the good things the NDP have done or are doing because they haven't done a damn thing that is even close to good for the people of BC

Perhaps I researched it already and came up dry, so if you're trying to sell anyone on anything, you might want to give them some pros if all they've seen is cons. Truly, if I can't find it, it ain't there.

That statement says more in one sentence about the GNDP than any of your previous posts. You and your precious "government" have never done your homework..........

So most of the posters would love to have the Liberals back!! Chinese money laundering was brought to light when Liberals were in, nothing was done as it seems it continues today. They tweaked Advantage BC so the banks could profit from selling Canadian housing to foreigners. Then we have the NDP who believe in tax and spend! Then there is the pipeline, Trudeau endorsed it but at the same time gives millions to Dogwood Foundation so they can hire protesters. I don't believe the Greens have a chance of forming the government, so who is there to vote for? As for the pipeline, build it already!! The chance that one day there may be a spill is no worse than Victoria dumping raw sewage into the ocean with no end or plan in sight!!

I don't think the NDP/Greens alliance/coalition/accord (whatever they call it) is anywhere near done yet.
They could turn it around.

- Limit political donations without using tax payer funds (most people where on board with that).

- Support resource industries (rather than fight/obstruct/delay) The country was/is built on these industries.

- Stop with he socialist Tax/Spend agenda. We need programs...we need taxes. But all in moderation.

- Abandon the push for electoral reform. Old system works fine enough....no need to skew things in favor of small fringe (like the greens) parties who don't give a damn about governing.

Turn the ship Horgan.
It is not too late!
