B.C. Energy Minister Rich Coleman is determined to ban harmless incandescent light bulbs and force mercury-laden CFLs into our homes, despite the hue and cry that followed the first phase of the ban earlier this year.
This is only the thin edge of the wedge of the B.C. Liberals’ creeping nanny state enforcing ever more restrictions on our freedom and dictating every aspect of our lives. The NDP is no better. They must not be allowed to succeed.
I urge British Columbians who don’t want every aspect of their lives dictated by Coleman and his ilk, and who don’t want mercury in their homes and landfills, to vote in the next election to unseat every politician who supports the ban on incandescent bulbs.
