Earlier this month, British Columbia Liberal conventioneers debated a resolution calling on the party to support "the province in developing a comprehensive human resources strategy to ensure the government continues to attract and retain excellent public servants." But our favourite Port Coquitlam city councillor Greg Moore, who was moderating the public safety and labour relations policy break-out session, suggested a somehwat different approach to ensuring more young people join the civil service: "The best thing we can do is keep the B.C. Liberal government governing, which makes it an exciting...place to go." So that must mean Premier Gordon Campbell and his deputies have nothing to do with the fact just 29 percent of provincial employees with statements such as "executives in my organization make effective and timely decisions" and "I have confidence in the senior leadership of my organization" - right?
