ME THINKS … BY RATTAN (2 items)

WHY didn’t Premier Christy Clark pay a visit to Abbotsford Senior Secondary School where one female student died and another was injured in the senseless stabbings that took place on Tuesday instead of merely holding a press conference to express her shock? It came across like mere political drama. Clark’s visit would have been such a […]
