Re: “Byelection delay is petty, not positive, politics,” (The Hill Times, Jan. 9, p. 8). Your editorial rightly objected to the fact that a federal byelection in the British Columbia riding of Burnaby South had yet to be called (as of when it was published, Jan. 9). That riding became vacant in mid-September. There is no valid reason why Prime Minister Justin Trudeau could not have called the byelection for late November or early December, once the B.C. municipal elections were over.
