Rafe in the Tyee: With HST Down, Clark’s Next


Read Rafe Mair’s editorial in The Tyee this week on the fall of the HST, the diminishing prospect of an early election, and why the Campbell/Clark Government’s next on the public’s hit list.

“What will that mean for the early election that Christy Clark promised in May upon winning her seat in Point Grey? The defeat of the HST probably means we’ll have to wait instead. Which is too bad. I hope Premier Clark goes
ahead and calls an election at the earliest possible date. This is the
rottenest government in my (long) experience, and I have no doubt that
voters will agree. Let’s find out, the sooner the better.” (Aug 29, 2011)
