Whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad. It looks like the gods are doing just that with the Premier and her government. What I’ve seen the past several weeks forces me to ask, Madame Premier: Is that thing on your shoulders just for photo-ops? For starters. Is the Kitsilano Search and Rescue […]

Old men cannot help feeling sad – not just at the physical ramifications, the illnesses you know will come all too soon or the fact that the fateful day is not far off. It’s not even the mistakes made, the people hurt by what you’ve said and done or the opportunities missed. These things are […]

Today, a twofer. First, I feel sorry for Christy Clark. She is, no doubt, a very decent person and mother. Her mistake was assuming that she had the ability to govern. She’s scarcely the first person to make that mistake, nor will she be the last. I know “I told you sos” are not popular […]

In assessing Premier Christy Clark’s political sins, add one other: irresponsibility…big time. In the Sun of February 26, on the business page, is an excellent article by Scott Simpson on natural gas prices and their uncertainty.
