Letter to the editor: My vote is Coralee

A letter explaining a Cariboo resident's choice to vote for Coralee Oakes.

Editor:

May 14, I will be a first time provincial voter.

I am voting for the BC Liberals and Coralee Oakes because I believe the Liberals are the only party committed to keeping the BC economy strong. Coralee and her family have roots in the Cariboo; she is committed to this area; she will work hard to represent us; and she has passion and energy. My grandfather, Alex Fraser, represented this constituency for 20 years, he believed in the future of this great province, and I believe that if he were alive today, he would be supporting Coralee and the BC Liberals. My family, has lived in the Cariboo since the late 1800’s.

I want to be able to live, go to school and work here, but without a strong resource based economy, this will not happen.

I am proud to be casting my vote for Coralee and I hope the voters of Cariboo North join me in voting Liberal on May 14.

And as my grandfather would say, we need to keep the ‘socialist hordes’ out of  B.C.
