Since the introduction of the budget, it has felt like both political parties have been waiting for the teachers' bill to be tabled to get their juices going. The energy in the capital building has been low, QP repetitive, and MLAs budget responses have simply rehashed the tired old arguments about why the people of BC shouldn’t trust the other political party.
