Third time's a charm
What does Derek Corrigan think about her trying a third time?
On March 31, I had the privilege of sitting in the gallery of the B.C. legislature during Question Period.
Well, I heard a lot of questions, but no answers. I was astonished to see Wally Oppal repeatedly refuse to answer questions. Having followed recent news coverage, I expected to hear the statement “it is before the courts”. But I didn’t expect that would be used for questions which didn’t appear to be related to the legal case at all.
Then came the submission of a petition that was very important to me, and many other British Columbians. Thousands of working people are asking the government to repeal changes to the WCB laws that have drastically affected benefits and pensions for permanently disabled workers. The Minister responsible, Iain Black, didn’t even listen. He cleaned his desk, used his Blackberry, and left the house before the presentation was completed. That speaks volumes to me.
Those who refuse to talk to, or listen to, the people of this province do not deserve the seats they hold in that honoured hall.
