The provincial New Democrats are better known the Liberals for blaming their woes on the media. But, in a letter published today in The Vancouver Sun, former Non-Partisan Association president and self-described Campbell supporter Howie Young complained that, after a "vocal group" announced their support for the harmonized sales tax, "the media took a new tack: '(Premier Gordon Campbell) lied to us in the election campaign.'" After refuting that accusation, Mr. Young then stated the premier "has a mandate to manage this province in the best way he knows how. You may not agree with his decision, but it has been made, so let's move on. If it turns out to be the wrong one, everyone will have an opportunity to cast a vote to express disapproval." Fancy that!
