Letter to the editor: Duncan is my choice

Former Quesnel mayor explains his choice to vote for the NDP

Editor:

In this election, I find myself in the unique situation of having been colleagues with all three candidates. As mayor, I worked with Coralee on city council, Bob as MLA and Duncan at the regional district. They are all good people. But Duncan is unique. He has tremendous intelligence, coupled with empathy with ordinary people. When Dave Zirnhelt told me Duncan was interested in running for the NDP, I was excited because I knew Duncan as an ethical human being. He could represent Cariboo North in government, bringing his knowledge of our resource industries to the team. And I can tell you, he will be very influential within government. In this election, you have a choice: retain the existing government or, as I hope, create new opportunities with a new government. If you wish for a change, there’s only one choice in my mind and that is Duncan Barnett.
