Ms. Christy Clark did not have the guts to show up and read her own statement in the British Columbia legislature this afternoon.
So....Using the magic of eyeball-to brain-to-finger-tapping technology...
Here, taken straight from the Twittmachine image feed of the V T-C's Rob Shaw, is the climb down on the Multicult-Memo from the (not)Premier that was delivered by Snooklandia's Minister of Everything, Mr. Rich Coleman:
"I have now had the opportunity to read the draft outreach domument and want to sincerely apologize to British Columbians.
The document did not recognize there (sic) are lines that cannot be crossed in conducting this outreach and it is unacceptable. The language in this draft document and some of the recommendations are absolutely inappropriate.
As such, I am asking my deputy minister to conduct a review to ensure that no government resources were inappropriately used. When that report is complete, it will determine whether further actions may be taken.
Every community in British Columbia contributes to the rich diversity of our province and the very fabric of who we are. We need to embrace and respect that fact.
As a government, we have a responsibiity to reach out to every community to ensure they are engaged and understand the services that are available to them."
Now, leaving aside the fact that any investigating should be done by an independent party for the moment, I've just got to ask...
Is this this the part of the disaster movie where Fazil Milhar and the shillophants that walk among the Snooklandians make their big retraction?
If not, Ian Reid makes it very clear why the actual government (as opposed to BC Liberal Party) rules indicate that they should.
Regarding that independence thing...We do still have an actual Auditor General, right?
Finally, the (not)Premier admits to the wrongdoing and then promptly buys time with this limited hangout, open-ended internal review-type thingy???...Why??...Especially given that this line of wrongdoing has already been crossed recently by her staffers, isn't she disciplining those who perpetrated the latest wrongdoing right now, at this very minute?...Oh, ya, I forgot...some of them might know stuff.
