I was truly overwhelmed by Christy Clark’s flowery and poetic tribute to nature, that’s right nature, during her announcement of 1,800 new campsites and a plethora of new park rangers.
I had no idea that Christy Clark is so deeply moved by the extraordinary marvels of nature in our province. She seemed literally transported by the essential contribution of nature to the growth and development of our children, to our economy, to tourism, to the attraction of scientists to our nature-blessed province.
This rousing and unexpected attention to nature is callous in the extreme.
I refuse to forget Christy Clark’s amazingly two-faced approach to governance in the run-up to the May 9, 2017 election. Ms. Clark must see some unpleasant writing on the wall after the Supreme Court education system turn-around, and the rise of animosity toward her government on LNG, Site C, Agricultural Commission, grizzly bear hunt, national park concept, pension plan increase and much more.
This is also the Christy Clark who doesn’t hear the 80 to 90 per cent of B.C. residents who are appalled by the gruesome grizzly bear hunt. Either she is about to announce a cessation of the hunt or she is doesn’t recognize grizzlies as part of nature.
Just in case anyone is confused by the term ‘epiphany,’ it’s a sudden, intuitive awareness into the crucial meaning of a concept or entity, especially at election time. I can smell election in the air.
