Christy Clark, BC Fall Session Target of Evan Solomon Letter
Huffington Post - Canada Zi-Ann Lum September 17, 2012
B.C. Premier Christy Clark and her decision to forgo a fall session of legislature is the target of a sharply worded open letter by Evan Solomon, host of The House on CBC Radio and Power & Politics on CBC News Network.
Solomon calls out the premier for not facing the electorate since she won a byelection in May 2011 and became premier. "And you do have an election scheduled for May 14, 2013," he points out.
"So, what's the message here?" Solomon wrote in a letter posted to the CBC website on Saturday. "That the government doesn't want to hear from opposition parties during a time of deep austerity and cuts? Or that the government does so little of consequence that there's no need to meet about its activites? Not a lot of good options."
