Good Idea - Wrong PLay

Right on, Kash.

At least the general goals are headed in the right direction.

When BC Solicitor-General announced today that he was going to do something about the unacceptably high incidence of domestic violence and deaths thereof, I am sure he won himself some new friends.

Deservedly so.

But Kash.

The exact way to not achieve anything new or useful is to ask senior bureaucrats what to do.

Remember that the old favorite definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing and expect new results.

Well, Kash, if senior bureaucrats had something to contribute to anything, let alone a subject as specific and horrific as domestic violence, perhaps they would have already done so.

Instead, ask a panel of police, mothers, parents, children, teachers, and ordinary citizens with a splattering of common sense.

Leave the bureaucrats alone to mess up property assessments and things they truly (mis)understand.

Someone who is so incompetent, they can't get a job in the real world.
