Today, Gordon Campbell and the Health Minister George Abbott launched the provincial's government's much ballyhooed conversation on health. It was an announcement so important that, when the premier took to the microphone, he counted two...yes two...MLAs in the audience - "John Nuraney, the MLA for Burnaby-Willingdon and Adrian Dix the MLA for Vancouver-Kensington - Kingsway, sorry. It starts with a K. I want to thank them both for coming." During his speech, the premier said the administration will give British Columbians a number of different ways to participate in that conversation - including a Website. At publication time, however, that site was not yet up and running, having the apt title "Conversation on Healthcare - blank."
