“Leaders lead. They walk the talk, even when it’s difficult. Sadly once again both the B.C. Liberals and the B.C. NDP have shown us this week that they aren’t willing to take action now, which is what British Columbians want. The B.C. Liberals are just laughing it off, while the B.C. NDP will only do something about it if they win the election. In the meantime, both of them will accept the same potentially corrupting money that is making B.C. the wild west of politics, even by American standards.”
