Letter: NDP governments don’t keep close tab on how tax dollars are spent

Editor: When ICBC first came into existence, claim centres were not located everywhere like they are today.

You would go to an insurance office to start a claim.

With the NDP government, I needed a new windshield for my car, and went to a insurance office to get an authorization slip for a new windshield.

I asked the clerk, if they would like to walk outside to look at the car. They said, no, that is not required.

When the Social Credit party became government, I also needed a new windshield. I went to a local insurance office to get a authorization slip, and this time, the clerk wanted to see the car, to make sure that I did need a new windshield.

In summary, this proves to me, that NDP governments, don’t care about taxpayer dollars in relation to coalition governments that do care about taxpayer dollars. That is why B.C., Ontario, and Nova Scotia all had NDP governments that only lasted for one term, because of their destruction to the province.
