Shame on Tories

Shame to the Conservative Party for allowing John van Dongen to join them. I believe the reasons John van Dongen used to jump over the fence are only to save his own political career.

All along, John knew and was part of the government that tried unsuccessfully to cover the train affair. He knew and supported the implementation of HST, he supported the almost billion dollars spent for the roof renovation of B.C. Place instead of putting that money to families in need.

Although I’m commending you for resigning the solicitor general post over the speeding tickets affair, I wish you had walked away from the governing party instead of waiting for the results of the polls. I hope voters of B.C. are remembering you and your ex-colleagues in the 2013 elections.
