If you have something you’d like to say to government about the budget, here is your chance, says David Pacey, president of the BC Liberal Constituency Association for Columbia River-Revelstoke .
“We all have issues with government actions both good and bad, but if we don’t talk to the poo-bahs directly, our views and feelings cannot be taken into account,” Pacey said in an e-mail this week.
He urged people living in the constituency to take five minutes to fill out this survey on the BC Legislature’s website, www.leg.bc.ca/budgetconsultations/survey.asp and/or register their opinions at public hearings on the provincial budget that are being held next month. The hearings are in:
- Cranbrook Friday, Oct. 9 — 9 AM – 1 PM, location TBA
- Kamloops Thursday, Oct. 15 — 9 AM – 1 PM, location TBA
- Kelowna Thursday, Oct. 15 — 9 AM – 1 PM, location TBA
He said people wishing to register for the hearings must contact the Office of the Clerk of Committees toll-free by phone at 1-877-428-8337 or by e-mail at FinanceCommittee@leg.bc.ca. You can make a Written Submission or a Video or Audio Submission

“This is a wonderful opportunity to participate in democracy and let Victoria know exactly what is of concern to you right now and in relation to taxes, HST, funding or whatever,” Pacey said.
