A conservative candidate

As a former member of the B.C. Liberal Party and supporter of the federal Conservative Party I’m pleased that Earl Olsen is running.

As a former member of the B.C. Liberal Party and a supporter of the federal Conservative Party I’m extremely pleased that Earl Olsen is the B.C. Conservative candidate for Columbia River-Revelstoke.

We need choices and need to be able to vote for a candidate and party that represents a change from the two old, mainstream, status quo political parties.

We need to be able to vote for a party that will govern with integrity, a party that will be open and honest with its citizens, a party that will apply sound and prudent fiscal and economic principals to manage and restore the province’s finances, a party that will work to create meaningful jobs for all people throughout the province, a party that believes in being socially responsible and compassionate and a party that knows we need to take meaningful and measurable steps to protect our environment.

Liberal scare tactics just won’t work in this election.  It’s ordinary folks who will decide which party will get to lead this province for the next four years.  The more choices our citizens have, the stronger our democracy becomes.

I welcome the opportunity to hear the Liberal Party and candidates defend their track record.  The more it’s examined, it becomes clear we need a new party and candidates who believe in open and transparent government, the free enterprise system, fiscal responsibility and personal accountability.

We don’t need another four years of Liberal mismanagement, arrogance and fiscal irresponsibility.

When you go to vote think of these BC Liberal programs, initiatives and fiascos:

HST, BC Rail scandal, Carbon Tax (costs you money every time you fill up your car and truck), Carbon Offset Program (has wasted millions, rewarded big business and done nothing to improve the environment) money that could have been spent on education and health care, increased BC Ferry fees,  increased ICBC fees, increased electricity rates, increased government spending, increased government debt, smart meters, expensive and extravagant pensions and salaries for MLAs, privatization of waterways and streams and the money wasted at Crown corporations on excessive salaries, benefits and perks for executives and senior managers.

After 12 years of Liberal government incompetence I think you’ll agree we need a change. With the BC Liberal track record; the party, its candidates and supporters like Cliff Boychuk should be concerned about splitting the vote.  If they had any common sense they would stop campaigning and rally around the BC Conservative Party.

Think carefully before you vote on May 14.   There is a party that represents real change, will bring common sense to government decisions, believes in free enterprise and is not concerned about how many other political parties are competing for your vote.  It’s the B.C. Conservative Party.
