BC Premier, Gordon Campbell, Resigns from office. 91% of the province approves.
But, in all honesty, given Campbell’s 9% approval rating and his recent attempt to buy back support with the voter’s own money, this isn’t particularly shocking. I’m curious what Terry readers think about his resign. I hope that with a new driver at the wheel, the provincial government might reconsider how it’s been funding provincial arts groups (i.e. see Spirit festivals aimed to reinvigorate the Olympic mania of Feb 2010):
In per capita funding, B.C. ranked last out of all the provinces in the most recent Statistics Canada survey, for 2007–08, when arts funding was higher than this year. It was pegged at $9.67 per capita, while Ontario was at $20.91 (third-lowest). (source)
