      I don't consider it to be getting into trouble to raise sensitive issues. It may be politically incorrect to discuss Premier Clark's attire, but no other woman shows cleavage in the legislature. You wouldn't advise a job seeker to dress like she was going out for the evening when she goes to work. Clark represents BC and should dress and behave like a professional.

      I don't think showing cleavage is distasteful; in fact when it comes to Christy Clark I will vote in favor of it; the more the hotter. It's her policies that I am generally not supportive of .ie on matters of real substance such as environmental matters; I'd rather see an Elizabeth May or David Suzuki in her place

      It is inappropriate.
      The legislature is more like a Church than it is like a Whorehouse, in law if not in fact.

      David is merely echoing what a majority of women in Canadian workplaces have identified as a pet peeve: inappropriate attire. Women are nearly twice as likely as men to identify inappropriate attire as a peeve in a large (n=17,000) survey by LinkedIn:

      'One thing in particular stood out: when it came to employees dressing inappropriately (too low-cut, etc) in the workplace, 62 percent of women said that this bothered them versus only 29 percent of men.'


      In light of this, Schreck's comments can't reasonably be considered sexist, unless one also considers a majority of working women to be sexist too. David is as fierce a partisan as I've ever seen and I don't believe for a second he'd make the same comments about an NDP MLA; nevertheless, he's on the side of women on this one.

      Wow. Don't you have more pressing things to worry about? Concentrate on BC and our issues and less about fashion and we might get a few more things done. Wasting time on a non-issue only shows that you shouldn't have been elected to your position. If you don't have the will power to look into her eyes and not at her chest I have no respect for you.

      Twitter debates are as interesting as spitball fights.

      Are we really supposed to judge the appropriateness of her attire without a picture? Is even the remotest amount of cleavage inappropriate for the legislature? Without supportive evidence, this seems like petty whining.

      David, I know it's difficult to accept the fact that women have some powerful god-given features that gives them political and economic advantages over men if they play their cards right. But just accept it and deal with it. Life isn't always fair.

      Apparently this is what Christy Clark looked like today in the provincial legislature. http://p.twimg.com/AbB0g79CIAARbja.jpg Looks entirely appropriate to me, Mr. David Schreck.

      Christy knows that sex sells! We all know that sex sells! So she got out her big guns to sell for the BC Liberals. Nothing else was working.

      She had a healthy portion of women's vote back in March. Clearly, now she is positioning herself for a portion of men's votes. However, it appears David Schreck still won't be voting for her.
