Green Party Leader Andrew Weaver is accusing NDP Premier John Horgan of being a "hypocrite" for a spate of party insider hirings. For years as the Opposition, Horgan criticized the Liberal government for doing the same thing.

"If you want to play the moral high ground you better practice what you preach, otherwise you are nothing more than a hypocrite," said Weaver. "Right now I feel the NDP is looking like a bunch of hypocrites because they are doing exactly what they said they wouldn't do.

"It's what makes people cynical about politics and they need to stop it because they are losing public trust. It's just wrong what is going on here."

Kassandra Dycke lost as the 2013 candidate in Comox Valley and has now been hired to work for Health Minister Adrian Dix. The NDP have overhauled all of the political offices during the change of government

Who's Dimples? Who's the MP for Kelowna? Both interesting questions that are hard to answer.

But, but, but:
Following the 2013 election, Horgan criticized the B.C. Liberal government for hiring a number of failed candidates to work in the premier's office or ministerial offices. But government house leader Mike Farnworth says the difference between what Horgan criticized and what he is now doing as premier is a matter of scale.

"In terms of 'failed candidates,' the Liberals hired nine. We have only hired one and that was after a full screening process," said Farnworth.

Integrity is a matter of scale. (Love the implication in "full screening process"... LOL. Politicians, eh?)

I wonder if they're still at "only" one "fully screened" party insider?
