If someone fired a gun at me and the bullet missed, could I then claim I was a murder victim?
It sounds ridiculous but consider what British Columbia Premier Christy Clark claimed recently, that once upon a time, she was the victim of sexual assault.
Sexual assault is certainly horrific, and the Globe & Mail headline pertaining to a story about Clark’s ordeal read:
“Bearing witness to unspeakable truths”
That sounds serious but, as always, the devil is in the details.
Watch as I explain the whole story including what may be the unspoken reason that she’s telling the story now, which may or may not have something to do with low approval ratings and an election on the horizon.
Generating public sympathy for political gain? I’d like to think that’s not the case but unfortunately, I’m afraid I’m just way too cynical these days not to believe otherwise.
