The Destroyers are inside the gate now, after Premier John Horgan and the NDP were sworn in as the next government of British Columbia.
Today, I'll acquaint you with three new cabinet ministers and their radical histories:
Jinny Sims is the new Citizens’ Services minister. She may be familiar to some since she was an NDP MP from 2011 until 2015 when she was soundly defeated. During this time, though, Sims wasn’t free of controversial statements.
Appearing on Power and Politics January 31, 2012 with then host Evan Solomon, Sims refused to rule out an NDP government negotiating with Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.
She first danced around the question as Solomon pressed her for an answer. Sims finally responded, saying:
“We would absolutely look at all options and diplomatic pressures to get a resolution that would suit both the states.”
Watch as I show you what else Sims has said as an NDP MP and her time as BC Teacher Federation president, including her illegal job action that was ruled on by BC Supreme Court.
Michelle Mungall is the new minister for Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources. Her history might be a clue as to what our resource sector might look like under the NDP.
And now that Tzeporah Berman is no longer advising Rachel Notely, BC better get used to seeing the ultimate Destroyer around here since she seemed pretty excited about Mungall’s appointment. Did I mention that Mungall used Berman’s endorsement of the NDP energy plan during a campaign interview?
I saved the best (or worst) for last:
The new minister for Environment and Climate change is George Heyman.
Heyman was former Director of the Sierra Club of BC, a far left environmental group that radically opposes the oil sands and almost all resource development, and they do it all while taking large sums of money from their American paymasters.
During his time as Sierra Club Executive Director from 2009 until he ran for the NDP in the 2013 election, Heyman and the Sierra Club were recipients of over $380,000 of US based money from groups such as the Wilburforce Foundation, the Bullitt Foundation and the TIDES Foundation.
In particular, the $25K grant from TIDES was to fight against the oil sands.
Heyman in particular needs to answer questions about his radical activist past, especially when he took foreign money to try to collude and influence Canadian sovereignty over our resources with environmental activists.
I’m not aware of even one journalist bringing this up with Heyman, but you can bet that I will when I get the chance.
I’ll demand answers from either Heyman or Horgan about why these Destroyers think it's okay to take money from foreign countries for their activist groups to oppose our economic well being.
