He makes some excellent points and I agree with his opinions.

How can any person or group come out against virtually every significant economic development project proposed in B.C. Where will the money come from to keep the B.C. economy growing?

The money needs to come from sources other than our individual tax dollars. We need the larger corporations and industry to keep the tax revenue increasing so the government can manage the provincial budget.

It is very difficult to survive on a pension now, without the taxes being increased.

Thanks for including a variety of views in your paper.
