"It was ironic the Premier would name the bridge after former Premier Bill Bennett in recognition of his contributions to BC.
Campbell has been busy trying to sell off parts of the Bennett provincial legacy. He sold off the railway Bill Bennett's father bought and in 2003 tried to sell the Coquihalla highway that was built while Bill Bennett was Premier." ~ Nicki Hokazono, NDP Candidate, Kelowna Mission, April 21, 2005
