Attending Question Period in the legislature on Nov. 2, I watched across the balconies as school children in uniform filed into their seats. Subsequently, I was horrified and embarrassed by the behaviour of the Liberal Caucus as they shouted over the New Democratic speakers who had the floor to respond to their questions.
The Liberals shouted and banged on their desks to wipe out what the government members were saying in response to the questions being asked.
I was particularly disturbed by their misogynistic assaultive behaviour towards the women of the New Democratic Party on the government side. I was ashamed that those children were being shown this as behaviour acceptable in their house of government. The Liberal Caucus should be ashamed and should apologize to those children, the people of British Columbia and those affected by that behaviour in the legislature.
All this took place on the same day that the Victoria Times Colonist ran an excellent editorial from Neil Godbout, Managing Editor of the Prince George Citizen entitled “Men: take responsibility for your misogyny.” Clearly, the Liberal Caucus is refusing to do so!
