Why can’t Dix be more positive?

B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix is so consumed with his own political ambitions that he refuses to admit that anything good could possibly happen unless he is at the helm. So why doesn’t he show that he has something positive rather than saying “no” to everything proposed and then putting down the Government. Why doesn’t he show that he can engage in dialogue and build consensus rather than behaving like a spoiled child?

When politicians devise strategies, the goal should be to move the us forward, not to move their own careers forward, keeping us in limbo.

Christy Clark has some good ideas and Dix could contribute to making B.C. more prosperous for everybody. But he chooses not to participate in a meaningful, but rather by throwing wrenches in the works and spoiling the cream for everyone else.

I can not help but shake my head as the Premier comes up with another good idea after another, particularly the amendments to the HST, proving that when the politicians put the good of the province before the good of their personal ambitions, we can move forward. But dialogue and consensus requires listening. And you can’t do that if you’re always criticizing to score cheap political points.
