To the Editor,
Re: Premier hosts women’s event, Aug. 21.
Why is B.C. Premier Christy Clark being singled out and criticized for holding “women-only” outreach events when politicians of all stripes have been doing the same for years?
I recall that Gordon Campbell regularly met with groups of women when he was premier, and yet, he was never attacked for it.
Likewise, the NDP have a gender and sexual-orientation policy which dictates who can run for them as a candidate. And don’t tell me Adrian Dix has never attended a “women’s meeting.”
So, why are the media carrying out this insanely hypocritical attack on Clark?
A prime example: CKNW has a women-only political panel going after her. Is it because the media have become so rigidly biased against Clark that anything goes now?
