Seventy percent - that's how many British Columbians disapprove of the job the province has been doing on ethics and accountability issues, according to a recent poll conducted by Ipsos-Reid Corp. I think that's a troubling number. But how much does it trouble Christy Clark? Is it keeping the premier and her advisors up at nights, worrying that it will cost them the next provincial election?
Well, that's depends on how much ethics and accountability issues trouble you. After all, during the recent federal election, many of you voted for the Conservatives - giving them a majority government even though the party and its leader had been accused of being secretive and undemocratic.
Which means Ms. Clark might not having anything to worry about when she goes to the polls. And that, perhaps, is what's really troubling.
