Re: “NDP joins Chong at table,” editorial, and “Nervous New Democrats back Chong,” July 17.
“Bon appetit!” seems to be the stock answer of many local politicians when it comes to their own “healthy living.”
We now know that at least three New Democratic Party members of the legislature see no problem with the outrageous $5,921 meal expenses claims for 2009 of B. C. Liberal Healthy Living Minister Ida Chong.
These NDP MLAs would appear to prefer not to have to disclose their meal expenses claims to the scrutiny of the taxpaying public.
This is all wonderfully good news for those who, like me, distrust both parties.
What voters in British Columbia and Victoria Beacon Hill really want to know is this: What does the leader of the Opposition, New Democratic Party Leader Carole James, have to say about these notorious meal-expense claims and the shameful secrecy that keeps this information pertaining to the spending habits of members of the legislature from the public?
Let’s hear Carole James on meal expenses
