LETTER: Carbon tax claim, minority switch no fakes

BC Liberals did start carbon tax, but BC NDP raised it

Dear Editor,

Douglas MacWilliam is right, the carbon cax was brought in by the BC Liberals in 2008 [Anti-NDP letter fake news, Langley Advance Times, May 3].

But John Horgan and the BC NDP not only kept the carbon tax, but has increased it. Mr. McWilliam can check it online if he wants.

He disagreed with my assertion that people who voted BC Liberal wanted a minority government, but that’s what the election results were. In the last election, the results were for a BC Liberal minority government, and yes, the BC NDP and Greens went behind closed doors and behind our backs and formed government.

BC. NDP is not working in BC, making things more expensiv,e like gas, ICBC, and everything else.

Dean Clark, Langley
