Letters: Kevin Falcon ignores people, again

A Richmond News reader is reminding people about the BC Liberal leader's past
Liberal leader Kevin Falcon (front) was in Delta Wednesday morning where he criticized the NDP government as having a lack of vision and leadership when it comes to capital projects.

Dear Editor,

Re: “Falcon laments the bridge that never was,” News, Sept. 8.

Once again Falcon and the BC Liberals don’t listen to, and don’t care, what the mayors and people of the Lower Mainland want.

Right from the get go, a tunnel was the favoured choice for a new crossing. The BC Liberals never once consulted anyone, just announced what they were going to build.

Falcon has accused the BC NDP of wasting millions by scrapping the work already done by the BC Liberals, but has said he is going to do the same to whatever has progressed for the new tunnel if he’s elected. Isn’t that kind of hypocritical?

And he’s assuming the BC Liberals will be elected, forgetting they lost the last election even though the BC NDP said they would scrap the bridge.

So, once again, I say he just isn’t listening. And just a reminder, Falcon was in favour of the hated HST.
