The optics of last nights Bollywood spending spree by the premier were awful.
The Christy Clark BC Liberal Government pledges $11 million dollars for the copycat film awards ( BC lost the real McCoy days earlier) and in vain attempt to save face, Clark and her handlers picked the occasion of a town hall meeting to “Save BC Film” to make her announcement.
Of course Bollywood investment is important but there is a time and a place to make the big splash. The night when your own film industry meets to find solutions to save the industry from disappearing is not it.
Not only do the people of BC film feel like they got a slap in the face but it gives Clark an excuse for not showing up and answering the tough questions that these folks might have.
Clark does this a lot as evidenced by her making a You tube video instead of showing up at the Coast Guard rally this past weekend.
This is nothing more than the kind of weak leadership we have come to expect from Christy Clark and the BC Liberal Government.
We deserve better!
