  1. he's speaking in a derogatory way about a First Nations candidate. How do you think that would go over in the media if it was Wilkinson saying the exact same thing? Wilkinson did the right thing in turfing his candidate that said odd things about birth control that wasn't even directed at an individual. Cullen should step aside as well. Cullen did say more than that as well. “He’s not well-liked — he’s Haida — in his own community,” Cullen said. “The guy’s going to get bedrock 20 per cent. Like, his name is Kinkles,” he added, referring to Jones Jr.’s nickname. The comments, made before an all-candidates debate at the Smithers District Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, were recorded on Zoom. “Those comments were really disrespectful,” said BC Liberal Skeena candidate and Haisla member Ellis Ross. “They hurt Roy Jones Jr., they hurt his family, they hurt his community, and they basically hurt any minority who has ever experienced those kinds of comments. And what hurt more was the NDP’s silence on this. Such hypocrisy.” https://globalnews.ca/news/7403678/nathan-cullen-apologizes-haida-liberal/
  2. I would have thought 'lock up your daughters' would have been the one for Bill. Its funny how often this works to raise money. Works up here too to squeeze out the max for CPC donors.
  3. I guess for Horgan, being racist is OK if you're making fun of a Liberal. B.C. Election 2020: Horgan stands by Cullen following insensitive comments B.C. NDP Leader John Horgan maintained his support for Nathan Cullen on Monday, after Cullen came under fire for insensitive comments about a Haida candidate over the weekend. B.C. NDP Leader John Horgan maintained his support for Nathan Cullen on Monday, after Cullen came under fire for insensitive comments about a Haida candidate over the weekend. Cullen is currently running for the B.C. NDP in the riding of Stikine. Over the weekend, Cullen apologized for having made comments about North Coast candidate Roy Jones Jr. Cheexial, who is Haida and is running with the B.C. Liberals. https://vancouversun.com/news/local-news/b-c-election-2020-horgan-stands-by-cullen-following-insensitive-comments
  4. he would be, but I'm not sure I agree that we'd be better overall, it depends on what we miss out on defensively.
  5. I don't expect any significant scoring from him, but if he can turn himself into Motte 2.0 that would be great for us.
  6. of course you are. You just posted how disappointed you were in a voters decision above. you're really over using that term btw. Care to describe how you have so much "milage"?
  7. haven't heard a peep on how this all might work re: AHL. Teams will need to manage their rosters somehow.
  8. its funny you interpret it as a crusade and brush off the NDP misdirection attempts. You've never made a convincing argument btw to justify the election. I've already voted Green. I like their approach to green tech and not taking an 'us vs them' approach that many in the NDP love to push.
  9. she was looking pretty solid to win it but one of the lower down candidates threw their support behind Wilkinson. Big mistake imo.
  10. or you know, point out the factual problems with Horgans platform. YMMV.
  11. you're making excuses for Horgans weak suggestion of the "average" BC person would benefit from his program idea.
