The critics discuss whether the BC government's penchant for ordering pizza is at odds with stated government health policies.

Government credit cards were used to buy $84,703.03 worth of pizzas during the last fiscal year, according to figures assembled by Guy Gentner.
Gentner, who admits he isn't above an occasional slice, says there's a double standard at play in Campbell's government, given the high levels of fat and sodium in most pizzas. "I would say it's hypocritical," Gentner said.

Campbell's call for the province's residents to enjoy five daily servings of fruits and vegetables has become a familiar line in his speeches.

Forget the healthy eating stuff, why the heck is the government spending $85,000 on pizza in the first place? I can only imagine what they're spending on chinese....
