Bill Bennett A Knight In Shining Armour - August 18 1932 – December 3 2015Saturday, December 05, 2015
Former British Columbia Premier Bill Bennett died this past Thursday. The various articles in the Vancouver Sun all mentioned that even people who thought they disliked the man sometimes changed their minds when they met him in person.
I wrote about my similar experience here. But again reading about him I thought again how an editorial photographer (this category is in a rapid avenue towards extinction) should never have a predisposed opinion on a subject to be photographed.
And looking back now at this politician and his record and comparing him with those running for the GOP in the United States, he seems to me a knight in shining armour. I am thankful for living in Canada and in British Columbia.
Isn’t Bennett’s smile wonderful?
