COLLINS – Proof is in the pudding

IT WAS GOOD to see Premier Horgan talking about the B.C. wildfire situation in his first days in office, and good to have two cabinet ministers and a parliamentary secretary here Thursday to talk to people first hand.

It gives me a little hope that the new government will not forget about the Interior even though almost all their MLA’s come from big population centres at the Coast or on the Island.

The speculation is that Horgan will have to cater to the voters who largely have no concept of the problems in the Interior, have no concept for the value big industry has in our province, and have no idea of life beyond Hope.

    The other way to look at it is that the folks in Kamloops/North Thompson had the opportunity to elect a good woman as MLA and that didn’t happen.
    She is a perfectly capable individual who could have possibly been a Cabinet Minister.
    Instead, the riding has an opposition member.
