Re: "Clark needs to do more than complain," Opinion, Jan. 23.
The suggestion that Christy Clark has been stymied in her attempt to engage Adrian Dix in meaningful debate ignores the fact that the B.C. Liberal government has actively avoided the most meaningful vehicle for debate in this province: the legislature.
This is the same government that cancelled this fall's legislative sitting where issues around raw log policy changes could have been debated. In all, the Liberals allowed the legislature to sit for a total of 47 days in 2012 - the fewest sitting days of any province in Canada - leaving many critical issues without resolution.
Instead of debating their ideas with other elected officials, the B.C. Liberal government has chosen to sell them to British Columbians with their own tax dollars in a $15-million partisan ad campaign. British Columbians deserve a government that is interested in meaningful debate that serves everyone, not negative advertising that serves only themselves.
