B.C. must be a leader

Salaries are a lot higher than they were in 2000, so let’s go back to those tax levels and get out of debt.

Re: Here comes the tax, man (Our View Feb. 1).

I enjoyed the outlook of your editorial. Please point out how, when we don’t pay our bills, they become larger the longer they remain unpaid. Just like the charges on a credit card.

There is so much advertising about (making purchases) on a credit card, I think the younger generation doesn’t stop to think how expensive that “sale” item is.

Salaries are a lot higher than they were in 2000, so let’s go back to those tax levels and get out of debt. Let B.C. set the example for all of Canada and the world. We certainly need our roads and other infrastructure brought up to date and we certainly won’t get it done by going into debt.

Do us all a favour and keep this item in the headlines until we all do ourselves a favour and get out of debt.
