Letter: Where was B.C. Liberal Party's SD73 priority from 2001 to 2017?

Editor:

Kamloops MLAs Todd Stone and Peter Milobar claim that lobbying the B.C. NDP government for more capital funding for School District 73 funding is one of their priorities as B.C. Liberal MLAs in the legislature.

These two elected officials said absolutely nothing for years while their party gutted the public education system.

They said nothing while their party shifted money to private schools and wasted millions of taxpayer dollars fighting a losing battle with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation in court.

The lack of capital funding in School District 73 is not a new problem.

Why is it now a priority?

Now the B.C. Liberal MLAs care about kids enough to advocate for them?

Nope. No caring here, simply more voter manipulation.

It is insulting to the students and community schools for which the MLAs claim to be advocating.
