Commentary
What a funny little place our province is! What strange bedfellows our political leaders make! Imagine BC Liberal and Canadian Alliance supporters agreeing with Carole James of the BC NDP with regard to Premier Campbell's leadership decisions! Respondents in this survey are not impressed with Gordon Campbell's decisions surrounding his most recent trip to Maui and his decision to stay there while British Columbians waited for his return
