LETTER: Politicians provide us with comic relief

“B.C. politics easily makes up in entertainment what it lacks in edification.”

As we begin 2015, one of my new year resolutions is the same one that I have made every year for decades: Remember to never take any of the politicians in B.C. too seriously since their main role in our society is to provide us with comic relief.

I believe it was long-ago B.C. legislative correspondent Ian Street who best summed up the world of B.C. politics way back in the 1950s when he wisely observed: “B.C. politics easily makes up in entertainment what it lacks in edification.”
