Norma Blissett.

Will we be better or worse off if we stay with the Liberals/go back to the NDP?

 

This election is about choice.  More of the same or change for the better.

More of the same means:

–       the worst levels of child poverty and the highest levels of inequality in Canada with no plan to close the gap;

–       a broken apprenticeship system where 63% of apprentices fail to complete their training;

–       a government that neglects both the land and the people,

that says one thing and does another.

 

Change for the better means:

-creating a sustainable diversified economy with no HST-like surprises;

–investing in post-secondary education and skills training;

– growing local economies and supporting local business;

-growing our resource economy – mining, forestry and agriculture;

-investing in rural health care;

– saying what we are going to do as well as how we’re going to pay for it.

 

I am offering the constituents of Kootenay East an MLA who will be an effective voice in government. Someone you can count on, who knows how to be a team player and how to get things done;  someone who will represent ALL of the constituents and who will bring change for the better to this part of the province one practical step at a time.
