Letter: Lake has just boarded a political Titanic


I would like to welcome Terry Lake aboard the Titanic 2.0.

I have know Terry since he was mayor Kamloops. He has always been a straight forward, honest guy when I dealt with him.

That is why I was left scratching my head when he announced his intention to run for the Liberal Party of Canada in the Oct. 21 federal election.

As a self-described fiscal conservative, Lake will need to turn a blind eye to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s outrageous, drunken sailor spending habits — all with our money.

In addition, the prime minister has been unable to be truthful about his meddling in the justice system and now looks to be repeating that with the Mark Norman case.

I would offer Terry a free life vest and earplugs. That way, he might survive the iceberg of ticked-off voters the Liberal party is likely to hit in October.
