The tumult and shouting have died away and East Kootenay MLA Bennett no longer plays kingmaker to George Abbott in his unsuccessful run at the B.C. Liberal leadership.
So, until Mr. Bennett is given permission to return to the Liberal fold, we do not have his taxpayer-funded newspaper ‘column’ to brighten our days.
The opportunity to answer a timely question, therefore, will give him the media exposure on which he thrives.
For instance, can he explain why it is that the provincial government debt will balloon to $60 billion by 2013 – remembering that the ‘spendthrift’ NDP increased the provincial debt $1.3 billion annually during their time in office, but under Mr. Bennett’s ‘fiscally responsible’ BC Liberal government it has swollen to $2.2 billion per year?
I look forward to his response.
