Premier Christy Clark’s office replies to our latest letter

As you read the following “note” we received from Premier Christy Clark’s office recently, I wonder is you will feel as disgusted as I do.  The “ongoing investigation” (words of one of the investigators) has been a two-decade affair.

I wonder if we can sue a government for its dereliction of duty in refusing to protect the health, welfare, rights and overall well-being of the women and children caught in the criminal cesspool of polygamy.

Where are these people who have so much power invested in them yet continue to drag their feet?

Are there Mormons at the head of these investigations who will not take action because like Utah polygamy has been deemed to be a “religious belief”–excuse me, it is a belief that causes harm, it is a criminal act in Canada, upheld on November 23, 2011, by Chief Justice Robert Bauman.

I have a question for Premier Christy Clark:  Are pipelines more important that young girls raped into harems by licentious old men; than young boys and men thrown into society with just the clothes on their backs; than children taken out of school studying no curriculum other than the sermons of their imprisoned “prophet”?  Where do your priorities really lie, Premier Clark?

Thank you for your email. We appreciate that you have written to express your views on polygamy laws and BC’s justice system. We want you to know that government shares your concerns raised around the issue of polygamy and the alleged abuse of young girls in Bountiful. There have been RCMP and Social Services investigations as well as court time spent on this matter and various rulings have been made. Both the Federal and Provincial governments have been involved in pursuing this matter.


Again, thank you for being in touch.
