Premier Clark probably does face sexism, women in politics and leadership usually do. But mostly she has earned the bad marks because she chose to be elected Premier (via by-election in one riding) of a government that is well past their best buy date. She earned the negativity because of how she presents herself, and most importantly, how she and her minions conduct business and run our government. They are a rotten bunch and voters know it. Look at the drop in support from the Liberal core who will likely sit this election out altogether, because they won't vote for Clark, or the current brand of the party.
Here is a perfect example, from her own lips, and the bafflegab of her government.
This is a perfect example of why people have so much disdain for Premier Clark and her evil henchmen. They must be quite clear they will not form a majority government on May 15th by now. Yet, they saddle taxpayers with a new five-year Maximus contract, to which the outgoing AG found did not fulfill promised benefits. Why no big press releases on this? Why no photo ops?
BC governments extends outsourced health information management despite issues raised by Auditor General
Keith Reynolds, CCPA, Policy Note, March 11th, 2013.
British Columbia’s government today announced it had extended its agreement with
Maximus BC, a US subsidiary corporation, to manage BC’s health
information for another five years. The $264 million contract will run
from 2015 until 2020. The original contract began in 2005. That ten
year deal cost $324 million.
On a comparable basis the new five year
agrrement has an increase in price of roughly 40 per cent.
The agreement was apparently signed two months before a provincial election and 11 days after a report from BC’s Auditor General that found the benefits promised from the contract in 2004 had not been realized.
