^^So Urbane, let us know EXACTLY what Wilson is suing for, ok?
Why do people who fancy themselves "fiscal conservatives" not scream at hidden debt accumulated in the past dozen years? Or, do they only object to spending on social programs?

give up urbane. Fairness does t equate to ndp religios zealots. They'd cheer for cancer if a red shirt had it, but blame the liberals if an orange shirt had it. They are a mean mean bunch

Where did you see that he's definitely suing? He has laid out his reasons for a POTENTIAL suit so I'm not sure why you need me to provide them to you. I know it's embarrassing that Horgan and Ralston have defamed Gordon Wilson and it's indicative of a terrible start for Horgan as premier. The NDP promised to do things differently and to some extent they have. They've been doing things far worse than their predecessors!

^^By firing Wilson I don't see that it has caused Wilson to commit suicide like Rod MacIsaac did.

Well maybe with all this extra harassment generated here and twitter you'll get your wish.

Terrible people.

I think it's safe to say that has absolutely no relevance, in fact I find it the low point of this thread, where you going to stop ? Silly question. Wrong is wrong, your party, now, right now, still trying to deflect ? desperation to say the least. It's time to give up. Horgan wrong, Ralston wrong, FF wrong, what's the argument ? if you are actually trying to bolster your party, you are out exactly 180 degrees
Once I thought I was wrong.....but I was mistaken...

Defend the indefensible if it's your NDP. Wrong is wrong in my book but obviously not in yours.

The blind, rabid, savage partisanship in this thread is so saddening.

Thinking about this for a while now. Had I done this to one of my employees, my company would be on the hook big time. Wrongful dismissal, the company likely to get crucified by the LRB. I would stand a very good chance of losing my job. The loss of my job would be justified. Shame I'm not subject to the same rules as some others.

Hey Horgan, orange and green mixed together make brown, and that's the colour of crap!

I know, I can't either. Shameful, utterly shameful.
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.

Of course you can, just be civilized about it.

I know this to be one of the most awful incidents where Premier Horgan absolutely must learn that he is now leading a Province and must bring himself up to standards befitting his position. This was extremely unprofessional and quite honestly a real blow to those rooting for him to succeed. I believe emailing about this incident might bring their attention to further their agenda to do better.

But that's just me.

As for the why people commit suicide, there could have been a few factors at play, and political bullying was the last straw.

But further comparisons don't serve a purpose right now.
Our saddest days are when we add up our losses, and losses seem to be our saddest when we lose our best. Proud to be a "Leaf-licker" and I know who else is too. **smiles**

Does gloating over a job loss suicide really deserve civility?

I think we need a different perspective on this. First of all, let me say that I've been following Mike Smyth's career as a legislative reporter for quite a few years now, and I must say he's one journalist who really likes to stir the pot. Doesn't matter if it's the BC Libs or the NDP, he gets his little shovel in there and digs until the partisans on both sides go ballistic.

Having said that, I don't think there's a person in B.C. who has lived here for the past quarter century and been politically aware that doesn't know the history of Gordon Wilson, so it didn't surprise me in the least when I heard the NDP had sacked him. However, I was surprised to find that he was an even bigger pain in the backside than I thought. But it was a real faux pas for Ralston to say what he did. There are times when our Mothers' old adage, "If you can't say anything nice about someone, don't say anything at all" should be heeded, and this was definitely one of those times.

So I think now is a good time to step back, take a deep breath, and admit that Wilson is an......um......unsavoury character who lost his leadership of the BC Liberal party when he underestimated Gordon Campbell's ability to manipulate the media into making his opponents look guilty of whatever he wants the public to think they're guilty of. In Wilson's case, it was the truth, though.

Then Wilson wormed his way into the NDP for awhile. Even managed to get elected as an MLA. But when he lost that well-paid position, he jumped back into the arms of Christy's Liberals, and made a big deal of endorsing Christy in the 2013 election. Hence the LNG appointment.

How am I doing so far, boys and girls? I'm going on record as predicting that Wilson will not sue Horgan or anyone else, because he knows that all those skeletons in his closet are going to fall out and then everyone who doesn't know his history will find out all about it and he'll become unemployable, again. Does Judy still have that little business of hers in Powell River? Does it pay enough to keep her husband in the lifestyle he's become accustomed to since 2013?
