Below is a partial list of disorders listed. This was discovered this evening. Major question at this time is why has the Gordon Campbell government not taken this down after it was discovered?
The second question is why didn't the government check what they are posting? It appears not to be that important by the government.
This incident adds to growing perceptual and real concerns the BC Liberal government is moving further to the right. Recent "moderate" Liberals have resigned, people like Lynn Stephens, Christie Clark, Gary Collins and Rev Val Anderson. Recent Liberal nomination battles see many anti choice, anti gay and social conservatives running.
Mary Polak, former Chair of the Surrey School Board that banned YouthCO, an internationally recognised leader in HIV/AIDS prevention programming from presenting in Surrey schools is one of those social conservatives running. Polak also lead the School board in spending over $1 million dollars trying to keep books on same-sex families out of the schools. The school board lost in the end.
Polak was the Liberal candidate in the Surrey Riding By-election last fall and was roundly trounced by the NDP candidate. She is now seeking the nomination in Langley. Public Eye ONline reported today that Polak was being supported by a membership drive that was conducted by the Campaign Life Coalition British Columbia.
An interesting sidebar to the Polak run for power is the support she received from Lorne Mayencourt, the gay Liberal MLA from one of Vancouver's gay constituencies. Mayencourt has earned the wrath of many gay community leaders for his support of the anti-gay Liberal. Ted Nebbling, the gay Liberal MLA from Whistler called Mayencourt a hypocrite for remaining in a Liberal government caucus where Polak was introduced to the MLA's by Gordon Campbell.
I will have more on the government website concern in the morning. This is a very serious mistake for the government to make at any time. It is is even more so now given the context of the current debate nationally on same-sex marriage.
