Heggen cartoon hit the mark

Gordon Campbell Order of BC, Christy Clark flip-flops

Ole Heggen (Opinion, Sept. 9) has done it again.

His brilliant cartoon, Notable Moments: Former B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell, deftly summarizes many of the highlights of Mr. Campbell’s career including tearing up health workers’ legally binding contracts, being arrested for impaired driving and imposing the HST – followed by receipt of the Order of B.C.

Perhaps the sale of B.C. Rail – after promising not to sell the W.A.C. Bennett legacy – is another clanger that one might add.

Perhaps Mr. Heggen could produce another cartoon along the lines of the Monty Python “Confuse a Cat” skit regarding Premier Christy Clark and the B.C. Liberals as the “Confuse a Cat” Ltd. – and the B.C. public as the cat that eventually walks away in disgust at the bizarre performance of the Liberals.

Or how about Christy as an Olympic diver who perfects a double flip-flop with a twist including her families-first cliche and her various “fixes” of the

HST?

Surely Christy is the queen of flip-flops who claimed for six months she needed a mandate as premier, and now ignores her previous position as support for Adrian Dix and the New Democrats grows.
