Rewriting history

Dear editor:
It’s interesting that in Mr. Boshcoff’s article last week (View From The Hill) he blames the NDP for the Liberal’s lack of action on National Childcare. He makes the Liberal Party sound like the saviours of national childcare! Here is the Liberal “legacy” regarding this issue:
•1993 Liberals make a solemn promise to implement a national childcare program and win a majority on that commitment.
•1993-1997: Nothing happens!
•1997: Another majority
•1997-2000: Nothing happens!
•2000: A 3rd majority
•2000-2004: Nothing happens!
•2004: Liberals arrogance results in a Liberal minority
•2005: Liberals claimed they planned to do it all along and claim to be childcare champions!
This is the fact: The plan that childcare advocates support is the NDP plan.
Mr. Boshcoff must be aware of his own party’s record regarding childcare. I can only surmise that he doesn’t write these articles himself..
We learn from this that, until the next election, we must beware of Liberals trying to rewrite their history in an effort to “spruce up” their political legacy.
