Letters: Gravy train rolls on

Letter writer feels voters got what they deserved in BC government

As I write this, government workers in the Ministry of Education, while on taxpayers’ payroll, are using Facebook to slam the BCTF.

How is it that conservative governments in Ottawa and Victoria feel it’s their right to use taxpayers’ money to attack their political opponents and reward faithful party supporters and insiders – see Christy’s bridesmaid’s recently enhanced seat on the BC Liberal gravy train. No money for public schools?

Just who is holding B.C. kids hostage? I wonder if those parents of public school students who voted for Christy or chose not to vote expected this mess. They should have. Even a quick glance at Christy’s and BC Liberal’s record the last dozen years indicated precisely what to expect.

Sometimes people get the government they deserve… Others not so much.
