Bill Bennett gets to stay

Bill Bennett, the former minister of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources now the minister of Energy policy issues, criticized the premier quite severely about the changes in the ministries.   He has been allowed to stay on as minister.

Public dissent seems to be allowed by the BC Liberals but not by the BC NDP.   It once again highlights one of my major concerns about the BC NDP at the moment - there is no space for anyone express independent thoughts if there is any potential to disagree with the leader.

For the record, I like Bill Bennett and I like the fact that he speaks out honestly.    I am glad that he was not removed from cabinet or the government caucus.
