Kudos to Nicole Trigg for her scathing assessment of MLA Bill Bennett. He has displayed an arrogant attitude on every issue he’s touched since he’s been in politics. If he had his way, British Columbians would remain locked in the old Canadian stereotype as hewers of wood and haulers of water (and coal).
His attitude concerning the Agricultural Land Reserve is reprehensible to many operators in this valley and elsewhere, particularly in the Creston Valley, which is a precious agricultural resource.
Mr. Bennett likes to see himself as the representative of the Kootenays, but he is the only Liberal to be found in this corner of the province. Premier Christy Clark had better reign in this loose cannon.
