BC NDP’s “cheap shot” at fired LNG Advocate could cost BC taxpayers

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Barely a month into British Columbia’s Green-backed NDP government under Premier Horgan, we already have our first major scandal which comes courtesy of BC Jobs Minister, Bruce Ralston. 

I haven’t introduced you to him yet but I think it’s more appropriate to refer to him as the new BC Jobs destroyer now that he and Horgan have destroyed at least one high profile job.

Watch as I explain what happened when they decided to fire BC’s LNG Advocate, former BC Liberal leader and a former NDP cabinet minister, Gordon Wilson.

It wasn’t enough to fire him from his post but then they destroyed his reputation and slandered him on his way out the door.

Their stated reasons for firing Wilson are in dispute and it appears that even the BC NDP knew it themselves since they were in possession of FOI documents that showed their accusations against Wilson were not true.

But, the truth is, this is how the NDP work. Sixteen years in opposition and they just couldn't help themselves in taking a cheap shot at a guy on his way out the door.

It's amazing how the BC NDP managed to make Gordon Wilson, of all people, look like a sympathetic character by botching his firing so badly.

Premier Horgan, Bruce Ralston and the BC NDP know this too, and so they’ve been running the apology train down the track at full speed, doing everything in their power to avoid legal action after Wilson threatened to sue.

This week Horgan and Ralston retracted their comments and offered an apology to Wilson but will it be enough to stop a lawsuit and prevent the need for a settlement that will come from taxpayers?

That’s up to Wilson, but if he does sue, I think he will win.

“I have literally scratched a hole in my head wondering wtf BC voters have done. Apparently memories are short.”

Indeed they are. The problem is not really memory but the Three Pillars of Leftie-dom. They are:
1. The refusal to learn from their mistakes.
2. The refusal to learn from other peoples mistakes.
3. The refusal to exercise discernment.

Will this, as the headline says, Cost The BC Taxpayers? Well one should hope so. Pain is the only way a lefty learns. Prolonged, personal pain. As Ernest Manning said, “If the people haven’t suffered enough it is there God-given right to suffer some more”.

Let the flogging begin.

During the election, Horgan claimed he would “work for the people”. Really? Which people? Pardon me, I should know better. Other rich Socialists!

The NDP are ALL a bunch of dirty, stinkin’, commie scum! Horgan looks like a street thug.
You’d have to be a brain-dead retard or a complete asshole to be a dirty, stinkin’ commie, or buy into that evil commie BS today.
Destroyed economies, wars, suffering and pain, over 100 Million citizens murdered by their dirty, stinkin’ commie overlords – WTF is not to get about that!?
I guess our only hope is to be put out of our misery by that stumpy-legged little freak in North Korea, with a nuke or two…or an EMP over North America to put everything into a proper perspective – for those that survive it…
Which would be preferable to this lingering death we’re forced to endure lately.

I have literally scratched a hole in my head wondering wtf BC voters have done. Apparently memories are short. It seems the province’s forays into NDPEE governments of the past didn’t inflict enough damage to register???? Have to agree with Yvette Mozol pertaining to the bumpy road, if there is a road at all.

Is it me, or is Chris getting madder in his videos?

Maurice Potvin good observation.

BC voters had better fasten their seatbelt, it’s going to be a bumpy ride. Get ready for the tough road ahead, it’s only beginning.

Ron Joseph, I’m not mad at him. He’s completely irrelevant to me. I’m simply making a personal observation based on his actions, as well as those of Judy Tyabji’s, which destroyed two families. Admittedly, it’s none of my business and they certainly aren’t answerable to me, but I’m entitled to my opinion and I’m entitled to express it. He’s probably not someone I would choose to hang out with is all I’m saying. Which is OK, he probably wouldn’t want to hang out with me either.

Maurice Potvin—Are still mad at Wilson and Judi for falling in love in the 80’s? Sure other people were hurt, but even Politicians have the same feelings as the rest of us.
Seriously, I heard Horgan’s apology and it was less than 2 seconds long. I hope Wilson nails the NDP and creates the first nail in the NDP’s coffin.

If a citizen wronged by an individual, who is a government member or bureaucrat, was able to take direct civil action against that individual, then there would be less political cheap points. I do not understand why slander by a government member is not slander by that individual, but by the province.

Gordon Wilson was, and is, a completely amoral sorry excuse of a politician and a human being. The fact that he actually looks like a sympathetic character in this conflict with the NDP clearly demonstrates how morally bankrupt the NDP actually is.

I hate commies and the NDP commie wannabees.
