Dix slips

NDP leader diverts focus by mentioning position on balanced-budget law

B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix accidently slipped on a political banana peel.

After giving a cleverly crafted and deftly delivered speech at the Union of B.C. Municipalities annual convention in Victoria, Dix told a scrum of reporters he would consider rescinding B.C.’s balanced-budget legislation.

Oops. Now everyone has forgotten about his speech. Dix should know better.

Politicians fall hardest when they try telling people the truth. Welcome to the tricky-sticky real world Adrian.
