May 14 cannot come soon enough

Clark is responsible and accountable for the operations of her office, she chairs the Liberal caucus and she is the Liberal party leader

The cartoon, Christy Ponders What Action to Take, on March 22, says it all regarding the Premier’s response to the Doyle report on the Liberal government Multicultural Strategic Outreach Plan.

Premier Clark is shown thinking to herself that she should  “Deny direct involvement … Deny knowing what’s going on under my nose … Blame Dix…” It’s as if the cartoonist had access to the B.C. Liberal speaking notes!

Officials from three groups met to forge the Outreach Plan — the Premier’s Office, the Liberal caucus, and the B.C. Liberal Party. Clark is responsible and accountable for the operations of her office, she chairs the Liberal caucus and she is the Liberal party leader. Yet she professes to know nothing of activities of her officials and has signed the re-nomination papers for John Yap.

Anyone who believes she, like Hogan’s Hero’s Colonel Klink “knows nothing,” probably also believe that there are fairies dancing at the bottom of  their gardens.

May 14 cannot come soon enough.
