While Carole James may not be setting new heights for political leadership, one of her camp is demonstrating the best traditions of a good opposition member.

I speak of Adrian Dix, the NDP provincial health car critic.

It is Dix who keeps supplying me and you with these delicious tidbits of flesh and flash around the Premier's ongoing disregard for citizens.

600 seniors affected by health-care cuts

Program could be kept afloat this year for less than Premier's recent pay hike, NDP critic says

In the piece in yesterday's Globe by Robert Matas, we learn, among other things, "A community home-care program in the Fraser Valley that helps more than 600 seniors stay in their home will be discontinued. But without the program, seniors may be more likely to move into long-term and acute-care facilities. The seniors' care program in Langley, which received about $88,000 from the government this year, is run by about 100 volunteers and five staff members,"

So 100 good people volunteer their time and energy to help the elderly in their community and the reward from the Premier is that the entire program may be starved shut.


Don't forget that the Cambie Line is opening next week. Wave a flag.

And thousands of government employees are "volunteering" their PAID time to the...what's it called? Oh yah, the Olympics.


On my continuing theme of The Olympic Premier who Cares Not a Fig for You or His Basic Responsibilities...
