In my life, I have found that nothing is more important than trust. That's why I find it very difficult to accept that NDP leader Adrian Dix, a man who knowingly forged a document in an RCMP investigation to protect his boss, former premier Glen Clark, would believe that he (Dix) is now fit to be premier of this province.
I simply could not trust a man who could perpetrate such a shameful act of deceit as that of Mr. Dix, an act for which he was rightly fired. The office of the premier requires the highest level of public trust. If I cannot trust the person who is premier, and have faith in the fundamental honesty of their character, all of my other strongly held beliefs mean nothing.
So for me, the upcoming provincial election comes down to honesty. And Adrian Dix has shown through his actions that he just doesn't have it. It's that simple.
