Baldrey's unusual defense of bad behavior

To follow political pundit, Keith Baldrey rant about the recent decision by Speaker Plecas to cool down the insults and name calling in the BC Legislature, you'd think that a revolution was underway.

Sorry Keith. You're on the wrong side of history here. If the 2017 election proved anything, it's that BC voters were done with the same old politics.

Voters chose a minority parliament which obligates politicians to work together. This isn't a bad thing at all.

Yes it's true that MLA's often behaved badly in the past. But, since when is bad behaviour of the past an excuse to continue bad behaviour in the future?

Regardless of opinion, the Speaker gets to enforce the rules of the house. Every parliamentarian knows this, and so does a seasoned pundit like Keith Baldrey.
