I have a rather cynical point of view on the acquisition of the new chief of staff for Premier Christy Clark. $100 million of interest savings on the HST payback buys many favours. The acquisition of Mr. Boessenkool looks more like an appointment by Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
The governance of this province will now come from the office of Stephen Harper, to which Christy Clark has reduced her status to nothing more than a mouthpiece for the Prime Minister.
Christy Clark has demonstrated to British Columbians she does not have the strength or the ability to govern this province. The B.C. Liberal party must now consider her future.
