Open letter to NDP Columbia River-Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald:
I have read with some interest, your comments reacting to Minister Bill Bennett’s announcement regarding the Jumbo Glacier Resort.
I am sure you have ready access to all of the resources of the New Domineering Party’s research department. If you are unable to engage those services, then I direct your attention to one of the first of NDP Premier Dave Barrett cabinet’s orders-in-council, concerning the boundary expansions of Kelowna, Kamloops and Prince George.
Let us not get into a debate about democracy, Mr. Macdonald, using the term you so eloquently employed today regarding the appointment of a municipal council for Jumbo.
Judging solely on the Kelowna, Kamloops and Prince George legislation of the early 70’s, it strikes me that the NDP does not have a corner on that particular market.
Look it up and give it all a good read! It was disgraceful then, and remains so now. But then, that — I suppose — reflects the NDP’s definition of democracy.
