VICTORIA - What's the worst thing about the Great MLA Raise Caper of 2005?Is it that the supposedly warring parties of the B.C. Legislature have been meeting secretly since summer? Is it the stunningly poor timing of approving raises between 15 and 30 per cent, so soon after legislating pay cuts and "zero, zero, zero" on the public service? Is it the three readings in two hours after telling the press there would be no more legislation this session?
Or is it that since the B.C. Liberal government's new "issues management" team was formed, issues from child death reviews to MLA pay have gone off the rails like a CN freight in the Cheakamus Canyon?
