Apology for Gordon Wilson

Here's an update and as Mike Smyth says you better hang on to your wallets:

Now I can give you an update on how the case is proceeding. And you better hang on to your wallets, because this gong show could burn B.C. taxpayers to a crisp.

Horgan and Ralston have both hired libel lawyers to defend them in the court action.

The lawyers — paid by B.C. taxpayers, of course — are seeking an out-of-court settlement, but no deal has been reached, and now Wilson is fighting back with a YouTube video produced by his wife, former Liberal MLA Judi Tyabji.

And that is why judges and lawyers handle these things, not you. Thankfully someone with legal training will deal with it.

We already know that Horgan and Ralston lied about Gordon Wilson. We also know that Horgan and Ralston apologized for saying things about Wilson that were totally untrue. Because they chose to say things that were untrue we taxpayers are going to pay this mess. What a gong show!

As I told you the other day, I can't read any Province articles until they decide it's time to give me another 10 free ones. Maybe I'll find a similar story on another news site. Anyway, I did watch the video, and all I have to say about that is, 'Hell hath no fury like a BC Liberal scorned'.

What a gong show indeed! Judy should not be quitting her day job any time soon. Or perhaps she should seek one of the film studios that create soap operas and try her hand at working for them. Her video could be the pilot for a show called "As The Stomach Turns", or "The Young and the Rest of Us". A real tear-jerker, to be sure.

What a despicable post! Some of you really don't get it. You think it's all about YOU not liking Gordon Wilson and his wife but it isn't. It's about a premier and one of his ministers defaming Gordon Wilson. Just because you don't like someone doesn't mean it's okay to defame that person.

What Horgan and Ralston said about Wilson was totally untrue and all you have to contribute is petty remarks about Judy Tyabji. Even the premier and Ralston know they did wrong or they wouldn't be lawyering up and trying to reach an out of court settlement. At our expense!

Thing is that's not a concept the NDP faithful subscribe to.

In their world if it's remotely tied to the word liberal, in any way fashion or form, all manner of attack is deemed appropriate.

Good thing we know that it says far more about them than it does their target.

Criticism accepted. It's true, I have no sympathy for Judy and Gordon. IMO they are despicable people. It's also true that the NDP should never have elaborated on why they fired Wilson. Suffice it to say he was very well-paid for the duties he was unable to perform as Christy's top LNG promoter. None of Christy's big plans for LNG export came to fruition under Gordon Wilson's tenure. I don't know of any employer who would continue to keep an employee on the payroll if he wasn't performing his duties.

That is what the NDP should have reported to the media, not some spiteful El Gordo-esque remarks that would surely come back to haunt them........which they did. I'm not crazy about paying for their defense either, but at least it will be a heck of a lot less than what we paid for Christy's legal battle with the teachers, or the BC Rail scandal.

Bang on Urb, and as taxpayers, we're going to have to hold onto our hats as the NDP rapidly depletes the provincial treasury.

What I see from the attack on Judy Tyabji is just more misogynistic hatred from the knuckle-dragging left wing. The good old boys from the union halls just can't stomach a woman who does better than they. One need only witness the vitriol those old cavemen hurled at Christy Clark to reaffirm it.
