This change of heart has even the most experienced political analysts scratching their heads and trying to figure out what exactly the Liberals end game in all of this is.
I can't say that I was surprised to see your reaction to Linda when she approached you in the grocery store. The fact that you couldn't carry on a two-minute conversation with an average citizen simply because she won't be voting for you is a pretty clear example of how you feel about the majority of citizens in B.C.
Why are we not questioning the cost (both financially and socially) of our current Liberal government's policies? The cost aspect of a promise or platform is a justified question, but only if you hold every party to the same scrutiny.

Well we are a month away from the provincial election here in B.C. which is hard to miss considering the non stop Liberal ads running every day all day on the radio, TV and social media.

If consumers in Asia use British Columbian LNG, the global emissions will be 20 per cent lower than LNG from our competitors. If this LNG replaces coal, the global benefit is even greater as it will produce less than half the emissions of a comparable coal plant. In both cases, B.C. LNG is better for the planet than the alternatives.
When I first met Christy Clark, I remember thinking we had a lot in common. Journalism has changed a lot, but at the time, female reporters and anchors were unusual -- in fact, when I was the first female reporter at CKNW, some listeners complained: how could this woman report the news? Likewise, Christy was also a woman in an untraditional place: cabinet.
It isn't that we all started to collectively do things wrong, it's that the rest of the world is getting a LOT better at this sort of thing. We need to catch up.

It would seem -- somewhere along the way -- the government decided doing something to British Columbians was easier than working for them.
RCMP Deputy Commissioner Craig Callens — the commanding officer for the province — sent a memo to the province's director of police services outlining the potential impact of the cuts.
