Horgan's key advisor labels blue collar workers "dinosaurs"

HORGAN MUST DENOUNCE ADVISOR FOR ‘DINOSAUR’ COMMENTS


One of the BC NDP’s biggest boosters – who shared a stage with John Horgan this morning – is labelling key sectors of the economy as ‘dinosaurs.’

“It’s time for John Horgan to stand up for workers, to defend them against attacks like the one from his boosters and donors,” said Today’s BC Liberal candidate John Rustad. “This morning John Horgan was proud to stand with Ms. Berman. Now we find she’s denigrating the industries that help to fund new hospitals, new schools and the programs we count on.”

Rustad was responding to comments from Tzeporah Berman, who in a lengthy interview explaining her enthusiastic support for the BC NDP, told The Tyee: “(Premier Clark’s) economic plan relies on propping up dinosaurs, extractive industries.”

“This explains why Horgan has basically skipped going north of 50 – he doesn’t have the jam to tell people in those communities what his party thinks of them,” said Rustad. “A simple question: does the BC NDP agree that loggers, truckers and others whose hands get dirty at work are dinosaurs? If not, it’s clear John Horgan must denounce his advisor.”

Berman was also one of the initiating signatories on the BC NDP’s Leap Manifesto, which opposes resource development and kills jobs.
"I don't even disagree with the bulk of what's in the Leap Manifesto. I'll put forward my Leap Manifesto in the next election." - John Horgan, 2017.

Just disgusting.
Epistemic insouciance is a casual lack of concern about the facts or an indifference to whether one's statements have any basis in reality. From now on the Liberal Party of Canada will be known as the "Epistemic Insouciance Party of Canada".
