Naming rights could lighten up government

Some extra revenue for province could make legislature less dodgy

With all the recent kerfuffle about naming rights for B.C. Place, I can’t understand why the provincial government has missed out on the most lucrative opportunity of all: naming rights for the legislative buildings.

How about the Molson’s B.C. Legislature or Labatt’s Parliament Building?

Undoubtedly, additional income could also be obtained by turning the rotunda area into a huge bar and by requiring all MLAs to wear T-shirts and caps with appropriate beer company logos.

I think this could be done while still maintaining proper dignity and decorum.

For example, the MLAs would obviously be expected to pry off their caps for opening prayers and all special occasions.
