In December, Premier Gordon Campbell told The Vancouver Sun's Vaughn Palmer that, even though the New Democrats have personally attacked him, his "strategy is actually not to do that. I think that Carole James and the NDP all are probably trying to do what's best for the province." But it seem some of the premier's cabinet ministers disagree with that assessment. Speaking in the legislature yesterday, Finance Minister Colin Hansen said, "I know that the opposition wants to be dismal. I know they want to be pessimistic. I know that they would actually love it if the economy of British Columbia failed relative to everybody else." Fancy that!
