It's been an unusually cool spring in Victoria. Someone referred to it as 'Spinter' the other day. Winter doesn't want to let go and spring seems a bit shy in appearing. I think I may know the reason for the chilly weather. The usual February to May spring session of the Legislature has been reduced (up until last week) to only 4 days. The lack of heat usually generated by thirty minutes of intense political rhetoric has impacted the local climate considerably.
However, things are heating up in Legislature as normal sessions resumed last week and I predict that in no time at all, Victoria in particular and British Columbians in general will be enjoying our usual balmy spring weather. The projected high for today is 15 C which is up considerably from last week. I have heard that we can expect a much warmer late May and June.
Expectations are that things may heat up even more on Thursday after the By Election in Vancouver Pt. Grey, especially if Premier Clark wins her seat in the Legislature.
There's never a dull moment in BC politics!
