Tell the BC Liberal's, and the New Democrats, enough is enough!

Today we have a guest commentary from BC Conservative Party member, and Kamloops South nominee candidate, Peter Sharp:

One of the stories in today's edition of the Kamloops Daily News had the following headline; "MLA expense reports lack detail, taxpayers’ federation says -- 'It’s a virtually worthless document'

Expense reports showing how much B.C.’s provincial politicians spend on travel are worthless, a director of the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation says.

“It’s flawed in many ways,” Jordan Bateman said Friday.

The reports don’t include a breakdown of ministers’ expenses, doesn’t give context on the number of trips they actually took or where they went, nor does it include who travels with them, although MLAs are allowed to take someone on 12 trips a year.

“It’s a virtually worthless document,” he said.


While the BC Liberal government crows about what a wonderful job they are doing with our economy -- the BC Taxpayers says BC Liberals and NDP MLA's are being completely unaccountable with our tax dollars. 

This is just ONE of the reasons why I have chosen to seek the nomination to run as the BC Conservative candidate in Kamloops South Thompson. Here are the FIRST two things the party I support believes in:

The BC Conservative Party is founded on and will be guided in its policy formation by the following principles:

1) A belief in clearly defined public policies and programs that are affordable and effective and for which delivery is accountable to all the people of British Columbia.

2) A belief in managing the government to the highest standards of integrity and transparency and British Columbians are entitled to full knowledge of services rendered and their costs.


We have endured two decades of NDP and BC Liberal governments. 


We have endured two decades of NDP and BC Liberal governments ... both of which have been unaccountable to us

We have endured two decades of NDP and BC Liberal governments ... both of which have been poor managers of our fiscal resources. 

We have endured two decades of NDP and BC Liberal governments ... both of which have doubled the debt each of us is ultimately responsible to pay back. 

That debt by the estimates of the Government, and in Ministry of Finance documents, estimates is now approaching $60 BILLION dollars!

To add insult to injury, in the case of the BC Liberals, we now also have to suffer and endure them spending $15 million of our tax dollars while they LIE and tell us what a great job they are doing.

I hope you will join me in working to bring the common sense ideals of the BC Conservative party to the legislature in May's provincial General Election.

Tell the BC Liberal's, and the New Democrats, enough is enough!

I'm Peter Sharp, BC Conservative party nominee candidate in Kamloops South Thompson.
