Clark is the NDP’s worst nightmare

The B.C. Liberals are ready for war, and its weapon of choice — Christy Clark. She has promised change, and I for one believe her.

If I have learned one thing: life is about choices, and one chooses how to react to circumstances.

You can choose to engage in things that tear down or build up. Clark has chosen to work hard on a path for fruitfulness and productivity.

Now, the NDP is another case. I decided to quit the party after 40 years of standing by the good, the bad, and Glen Clark and Adrian Dix, hoping that we would seek change. No such luck. For me the alignment with Bill Vander Zalm was the last straw.

Too much has been accomplished over the last decade to rebuild B.C., so I choose not to tear that down going backwards by supporting a party in crisis or chasing the promises of any third choice.

Life is too short to compromise time and resources. It may be tempting and more comfortable to just keep your head down, plod along, and appease those who demand more but deliver less. But that’s the worthless, easy path; that’s a quitter’s way out. And a problem in our province today is apathy.

Prisoners of conventional wisdom almost certainly will miss the significance of this, and like the NDP, they will never understand why Christy Clark has struck such a powerful chord with B.C.ers, so we ought not be surprised that this good news is completely beyond their ability to understand what is really happening.
