In a continuation of the theme from yesterday’s blog post ( and every newspaper I have seen) people are very upset at the pay hikes given out by the Christy Clark government before they were even sworn in.
Phone lines were jammed on the talk shows this morning with people calling in to show their disgust. Kind of reminded me of those same calls that came in over the HST. You recall that episode was not to pretty for the BC Liberals.
People said after the election that Clark was a good campaigner but a lousy governor and she would revert to the later quickly. I don’t think anybody realized how quickly it would start.
You would have thought that in the name of screwing the people over they would have at least waited until after that election was done.
Except that Clark and her team are extremely smug and arrogant and could care less about what the people think.
Patronage and payback are at the top of her list. ( More on that in a later post)
This event in itself shows that she really doesn’t get it.
The voters in Westside-Kelowna ought to do her and her government a favor a teach her a harsh lesson now.
They should show their angst for both losing the MLA they voted for a few weeks back and for this terrible act of managing the taxpayers money.
They should take advantage of this golden opportunity and vote against her.
A loss here will no doubt cause the party to give her the boot and just maybe they will get their act together and get a good leader that believes in honesty and transparency.
But then this is BC and these are the BC Liberals so who knows what they would do.
