Golf opens Christy’s door while not with teachers..

This kind of fundraising ( lobbying) for BC Liberals ( and others ) has become the norm these days. Let’s all get real and understand it’s lobbying in golf clothing!
The opportunities for acces to Governments, even after elections, is blatant hubris not charity. As a taxpayer, I’m offended when average working people, like the BC teachers, can’t get dialogue with Government; yet, cash can get you a round of golf and an morning to ‘chat’!
