Adult thing to do
On the heels of the February 29th Pink Shirt Day to raise awareness about bullying, what an ironically perfect opportunity for Premier Christie Clark’s government to help to dispel the adversarial culture of antagonism Federal Liberal leader Bob Rae recently identified is a sort of modus operandi in today’s politics and which presently dominates the relationship between British Columbia’s government and it’s teachers.
The premier touts her government as being all about ‘the family’, which presumably includes guiding our youth to develop into good citizens — not bullies — so surely she’s more favorably disposed to mediating an agreement with B.C. teachers, rather than forcing a legislated settlement.
After all, rather than force an agenda that’s vastly unpopular, it would seem to be the more ‘adult’ thing to do.
