Campbell’s legacy includes debt

Dear Editor,Re: Campbell exits, his legacy uncertain (B.C. Views, Feb. 23).I am dismayed about such a simple, misinformed and inaccurate article. There is no mention about our debt which has risen 16 per cent to a total of $48 billion which consumes 24.3 per cent of our provincial GDP!The interest on this debt is consuming $8 million dollars a day – down the drain for what? Adding the provincial debt to the federal at $650 billion and it paints a picture of a house of cards that is starting and will collapse. Responsible reporting and government would have put this front and centre.I wonder if any of you look at what is happening in the U.S. states that threw tax monies down the drain satisfying vote buying and a bloated inefficient bureaucracy. The time has come to address these issues and we need educated people with courage to do it. I can’t see any here or for that matter in any party right now.~Ken CosgroveVictoria, BC
