Rafe Mair and Adrian Dix: Round Two.
Rafe tries again, to pin Adrian Dix down on some grave concerns to British Columbia. No to Enbridge, but pay attention to the subtleties and rhetoric. “We have to get in there and slug it out” & “I think we need to take a good hard look at all the information…”
At one point, when Rafe is trying to get Dix to say his position on fish farms as premier,I actually yelled at Dix on my computer screen : ” Just answer the damn question!” Dix refers over and over to a report they did, stating that a detailed look at ‘their’ position is in the report. Nope, can’t just answer the question and make it easy for viewers who might not follow politics regularly, and who likely won’t go searching for an aquaculture report to find out- they will be left with that evasive answer as a lasting impression. I don’t want to go look for that report, I am a busy woman, kids home, teachers on strike,work to do, puppy needing to pee – I just want to hear Dix tell us where he stands.
We know there are no easy answers to fixing what is wrong in BC, but dodgy replies and rhetoric do nothing to engage those very disengaged people Dix states he wants to capture at the end.
What do you think about part 2? How do you feel after having seen these two videos ?
