If Horgan and the rest of the MOR drones in the NDP don’t get their act together and realize that resource extraction is dinosaur methodology, the party will find itself with few supporters…the progressive voters in this province want a greener vision for BC..and yes, there will be some interruption of employment, but it’s been shown that a green-based economy can be just as lucrative as resource extraction, which is destructive, polluting and ultimately finite..the “he’s a lumberjack and he’s okay” sort of thinking has to give way to the realities of climate change and attitude change..this is why the Greens are doing well in BC and the NDP is losing followers at a rapid rate..that lack of vision can be extended to the NDP federally a s well as in other provinces..I have always voted for the NDP, but if this is all that Horgan et al have to offer, more of the dreary, mind-nimbingly backward same old same old, then I’m done…
I happily signed the Leap Manifesto, and will continue to write/fight against fracking, pipelines and other destructive practices in any way I can..these ‘jobs’ are the past, not the future. Notley and Horgan are self-destructing if they think otherwise.
