At 2:00 p.m. Premier Campbell attended a meeting at the Chamber of Commerce office with the Mayor and City Council. The message from our Mayor and Council was that our resources are for local jobs not for export was clearly communicated to the Premier. Chants from the concerned citizens and groups were “The RCMP don’t like working for drunk drivers!” “Stop selling power!” “Stop Selling Saw Logs!” “If Gordon Campbell wants to live in a 3rd world country, he should move to one and leave B.C. alone!” and many more slogans.
Instead of coming out the front door and facing the concerned citizens and groups Gordon Campbell crept out the back door and into a police car and was whisked away. So people started to call him “Back Door Campbell”
In the mean time the government has decided to cut over $100 million from the budget for the ministry of Children & Family Development. It appears that the government has an unusual way of looking after today’s youth, which the government has always insisted is our future.
