What better way to start your Friday morning than with a Gordon Campbell Caption Challenge ! It’s simple – I give you a photo, and you submit the caption you think best suits it in the comment section below. Next week, I’ll run the photo again with the best caption below it, credited to your user name. Since I was on the topic of oaths this week, I took a trip down memory lane and found a really interesting photo : good king Gordo taking his oath, back in 2001…. note all those glowing, adoring faces gazing up at him in the back ( shudder!) . And just for a laugh, I have the press release that accompanies the photo below….
NEW STRUCTURE FOR GOVERNMENT AND CABINET WILL ENSURE OPENNESS AND ACCOUNTABILITY
VICTORIA – Premier Gordon Campbell was sworn in today and unveiled a structure for government and Cabinet that is designed to make his government the most open and accountable in Canada.
“I want to ensure that my government is open, accessible and accountable to all British Columbians,” said Campbell.
“My government is committed to renewing public health care, building a top-notch education system, creating new services and opportunities for First Nations, revitalizing B.C.’s competitive position in the global economy and delivering strong environmental protection. We are also committed to changing the way decisions are made to involve British Columbians and ensure accountability in meeting these priorities.
“The new government structure we have implemented today will expand opportunities for public input. It will co-ordinate responsibilities in a way that makes services more accessible. And it will harness the broad talents of government members to ensure excellence and accountability in fulfilling the government’s responsibilities.”
“This new government structure is a crucial first step in providing greater accountability and in delivering our commitments to renew hope and opportunities for all British Columbians,” Campbell said.
Have fun !
