Oh, I guess she would!!!!!


Speaking of making HR matters public - two names .. Plecas and his sidekick Mullen. Did I tell you how much I DON'T trust these two arrogant (insert whatever word you like).

Of course she would. She is a veritable sieve.

But isn't she breaking her oath of office to keep 'confidential matters confidential'???

It is irrelevant what you (or Polak) think of those two; when you are a sitting member of a committee that deals with HR matters you are supposed to keep deliberations about employees CONFIDENTIAL.

This particular member has been running off at the mouth to anybody who'll listen, divulging all sorts of stuff that she has no right to be divulging.

Petty Party politics, or personal vendettas have no place in HR matters. Particularly when loose lips could result in expensive law suits that you and I will end up footing the bill for.

Ms Polak needs to learn to keep her mouth shut.

Is there any other member of the Legislative Management Committee who has run off at the mouth about confidential matters like Mary Polak has?

No.

She needs to be kicked off this committee!

Yes Mary you are absolutely correct in saying loose lips could result in expensive law suits. Just ask your fearless leader Horgan.
How much money is Mr. Wilson going receive? :130: .... You and ff have a good night now.

not as much as he had hoped. besides i fully support horgan calling out that weasel and charlatan who is a career politician. the accusations were fully based on facts. this clown did nothing to get us LNG contracts. and he was selling us down the river with bad deals to petronas.
the capitalist idea of liberty is that one persons right to profit can be greater than another persons right to live.

For what it's worth, I didn't vote for the Provincial NDP in the last election; I voted Liberal.

I agree with you, Merry. Polak should respect the confidentiality required of her. There's someone else there at the Legislature who runs his mouth off and I think that needs to be acknowledged. That individual was roundly criticized by Beverley McLachlin and rightly so.

Never a dull moment when it comes to Plecas and Mullen:

VICTORIA (NEWS 1130) – The B.C. Liberals have plenty of questions about a cross-continent fact-finding mission involving the legislative Speaker’s chief of staff.

Alan Mullen’s trip across North America is supposed to be about learning how security works in other jurisdictions.

However, the official opposition is asking why he needs to go.

“It’s hard to understand how this tour could be appropriate,” B.C. Liberal House Leader Mary Polak says. “I guess in the first instance, I’m not aware of any particular expertise that Mr. Mullen has to be conducting a review of security of the Legislature. Nevertheless, that’s the stated reason for his trip.”

Polak adds she’s been provided no itinerary for Mullen’s trip, just a “loose list” of places he plans to visit. The Liberals have asked the Speaker for clarification, she notes.

How much this trip is going to cost is another question the official opposition is asking.

I'd need more information before deciding whether this trip is a good idea or not but, on the face of it, it never hurts to see how other folks are doing things - what works and what doesn't. It's one of my pet peeves that Governments often waste a lot of time and money "reinventing the wheel" instead of learning from the experience of others.

So, until I know a bit more, I'm not prepared to pass judgement on this idea one way or the other.
