For the week of Oct. 18, 2020:
On this edition of theBreaker.news Podcast, the week on the campaign trail.
BC Liberals Zoom scandals sandwiched the TV debate, where Green leader Sonia Furstenau grilled NDP leader John Horgan for calling a snap election in the middle of the worsening coronavirus pandemic.
“You’re willing to break your word, you’re willing to break agreements and you’re willing to break legislation that you yourself passed in the Legislature,” Furstenau said.
Joining host Bob Mackin is guest Bryce Casavant, the former NDP candidate and former conservation service officer.
Casavant complained to B.C.’s chief elections officer about the use of emergency powers without input from the Legislature. Casavant said the election should have been held in October 2021 according to law. Instead, the Oct. 24 vote is “a cookbook for a modern coup d’etat, it is a recipe for a disaster.”
