Tom Christensen will not be running again in the May provincial election.

This is good news for all of British Columbia, but especially for children.

Mr. Christensen has been for several years now the worst Minister of Children and Families we have ever seen. Which is saying a lot, since this file has been busier than an Olympic relay team.

We have asked him in these pages several times to resign. His incompetence and blindness in dealing with children at risk has been monumental.

He is also the seventh member of Gordon Campbell's cabinet to say, "Basta, baby! I've had enough."

The only sorry part of this news is that he plans to spend more time with his own children and family.

Perhpas he's better with children and families hands-on than from behind a big desk.
