Cost savings could be found in government ministries

B.C. party leaders could win votes quickly, writes reader

These days in the election atmosphere, most British Colombians are concerned as to where their money is going.

So far, all party leaders are throwing our money (essentially money that we don’t have) left and right just to earn some “brownie point” votes. If one of the party leaders would come up with the idea of lowering wages for all government offices, myself along with others would vote for that party.

The party that comes up with a plan for minimizing financial support for any Crown corporation or institution, would get my vote and likely that of others, etc.

Priorities first. Plain and simple. To have a budget, first we have to find the money. We can’t fix the budget by taking money from low-income people.
