The most outlandish move was to promote the Wood Innovation and Design Centre as a 10-storey, wood frame building, making it the tallest wood structure in the world. What about building codes, safety assessments, economic viability, and financial feasibility? Evidently, this government felt those are questions more suitably dealt with after the fact. That simply is not good and responsible government.
The moment that this public trust is called into question is the point that our entire system of governance is compromised. In the interest of maintaining the integrity of B.C.'s Executive Council, I believe that my colleagues Shirley Bond and Pat Bell have an obligation to remove themselves as ministers until this matter is formally investigated.
