Premier should condemn bully MLA

Christy Clark's stance on anti-bullying has to be reflected in her actions

Re: Desperation heard in Krueger’s tactics (Our View, June 6)

I couldn’t agree with your editorial more.

Just this morning I heard the news of another poll showing that Premier Christy Clark’s approval rating has gone down again, to 30 per cent, while the rating for Adrian Dix has gone up to 53 per cent.

If Clark was smart she’d see that MLA Kevin Krueger’s rude, badgering, bullying manner and his out-of-control blabbing to the press reflects negatively on her and her party. If she is such a “great communicator,” she should know that Krueger’s out-of-line heckling prevents real communication in the house and turns everybody off.

He looked totally unprofessional on TV, ranting against the opposition. Clark commented that “he’s not always politically correct” and laughed it off.

I think people expect her to condemn his behaviour. I agree that people will find it hard to take her anti-bullying initiative seriously while she is fostering Krueger’s actions.
