Heading to the polls with a heavy heart

With a heavy heart, I write this letter. I am burdened. I have no idea who to vote for.

Open letter to all of the provincial political parties:

With a heavy heart, I write this letter. I am burdened. I have no idea who to vote for.

It tears me apart to hear and see each party throw out their gestures of body language and lies. They bash one another and then pat themselves on the back.

I’m not against different opinions or disagreements. But why do the parties need to act like a five-year-old? No party can keep half the promises they make.

Many of the members in each party have no integrity or even respect for each other let alone the people of BC. All I see is “how much can we fill our pockets if we’re voted in? What can we get out of the people, no matter the cost?”

Do you truly — I mean truly — want to help the people? Then get down to our level. Start being honest. Don’t make promises you can’t keep.

The bottom line is you don’t have any idea what the future holds. You may have only a small idea what the last party left behind for you to deal with. You cover up the mistakes that happen in your party and expect us to deal with them.

So who do I vote for? Sadly no one. But to be heard I must vote. But for whom?
