It has been less than 24 hours since the announcement of his resignation and the media and interviewers have spent most of that time praising the Ghiz leadership and record. So much media attention all claiming this sudden resignation came as a great shock. Well not for me, for me it was the best news ever. IMHO Robert Ghiz is without doubt the worse premier this province has ever had. While others lauded praise on him,, Ghiz even praised himself proclaiming the marvelous things he and his government had accomplished during his reign. However, he makes no mention of hiring Alan Campbell the same night the people of Souris rejected him. No mention of evicting people from their homes to build his plan B road. No mention of unleashing the RCMP to arrest citizens opposed to plan B. No mention of the hated HST, of course I should have expected that, he made no mention of it before the election either. No mention of the ballooning deficit, now 57% higher than when he took office. No mention of the dreadful state of education in the Province. No mention of the huge gap he has created between rural and urban communities. No mention of the condition of our environment, of the fish kills, of passing the buck on pesticide use in communities. In fact he appears to have forgotten or avoided a great deal about his 7 years as our premier. One also may wonder why this sudden change of direction, has he been promised some special reward in Ottawa? a plum job perhaps, maybe a senate seat???Watch this space because it is almost a certainty that some day when we are all looking the other way, he will slip quietly into some very lucrative appointment. Oh dear, I really must move on, politics is such a depressing subject . So how about this.
God Bless and keep reading
