A bouquet of roses to Premier Christy Clark for her thoughts on “What can the government do to make families healthy and whole.” Now I just wish she would wake up and smell those roses.
Premier Clark appears to want to put health and families first and in the same breath (of Comox Valley clean air), she wants to open up a coal mine that will jeopardize the very water and air many of us need to live.
I fail to see what good it will do to have a few temporary jobs to feed our families if the water we drink or the air we breath becomes toxic.
Premier Clark also states, “Asia Pacific is the fastest growing middle class in the history of humanity and the fastest urbanization, and that we want to be there and I think the Comox valley should be there, too.”
If our premier feels so strongly about that, she should purchase a box of surgical masks and a case of bottled water (that is produced in this area) and move to the Asia Pacific and smell the roses there if she can.
