Last week, the provincial Liberals launched their pre-election fundraising drive by releasing a video highlighting the Campbell administration's accomplishments in three areas: the economy, the environment and aboriginal relations. But we find it somewhat curious the advertisement doesn't mention healthcare - even though the the Liberal's commitment to "initiate a province-wide conversation" on health was the centrepiece for their February 2006 speech from the throne; and despite the fact the latest Mustel Research Group Ltd. poll shows health as the top issue of concern for 24 percent of British Columbians. By comparison, the environment and the economy are the top issues of concern for just 14 and 10 percent of British Columbians, respectively. Funny that.
