My concern during this election is that the urban / rural divide on authority and power may erode further. In the North, our efforts provide 2/3rds of all the capital costs incurred in the urban areas from resource and tax revenue.
SVT will make the situation worse for Northerners, effectively further diluting our say.
Northerners are getting tired of experiencing the tyranny of of mal-informed consensus in the region. BC Hydro privatization? Haven't you sufferred enough from the BC Rail debacle? Think of it, we have a rail system which is supposed to be used be used to link our small communities together so they can develop through the certainty of logistics and the trains don't even stop. Privatize BC Hydro and what's next? rolling brown outs on the auspicec that we have to pay debt, brought to us by the friendly folks at ex Enron?
Old WAC Bennett must be turning over in his grave.
Its not the election you're going to have to worry about, its the aftermath.
Northerners have been shafted for years and have taken it with a sense of humour, but not much longer, the urban view is screwing with our kid's future.
