COLLINS – Sometimes people just make dumb comments

IN MY LIFE, I have made my share of dumb comments. Just ask my wife and kids. But politicians take the cake, as we’ve seen south of the border. But it happens here in good old B.C. too.

NDP Leader John Horgan, so intent on taking power, said Monday British Columbians can’t afford to wait for a new government that will take action to fight the fentanyl crisis. He was visiting families affected by the crisis, and took a swipe at Premier Clark for not immediately resigning, suggesting, I think, her lack of resignation was part of the problem. He said that fentanyl has already taken too many lives and families can’t afford Clark’s neglect any more.

That statement is ludicrous at best, ignorant at worst.
