Recall is about more than the HST

This piece by Tom Fletcher rather grated on my mind because he seems to think that the only reason for the recall is the HST and is some kind of vengeful reaction to it.

Fletcher’s view of the recall seems to be that of any good party membership paying B.C. Liberal supporter who believes no cabinet minister or MLA is to blame for anything.

After all, it is only the people who object to the method of introduction, not necessarily the tax, and we all know the people do not matter in B.C.

If the people should get mad enough to object and say, “Wait a minute here,” then it is up to the Fletchers of the B.C. media to try to put out that fire. 

Ida Chong is a good MLA?

Has everyone forgotten her role in the Coleman donation of Crown lands to Western Forest Products and the re-zoning of them? Who held that up until it was too late?

Is that what makes a good MLA, or is it what makes a good servant to the premier? How does she, as a local resident, really justify claiming more for her meals than many people make in a year here in B.C.?

I think she is a good choice for recall, based on her pathetic performance both as a cabinet minister and her disregard for her employers.
