“Blame” games: BC Libs’ Billboard says gas prices Horgan’s fault
Liberal-leader Andrew Wilkinson has ramped up his message that the Premier is responsible for the pain BC drivers pay at the pump. Wilkinson’s party has rented a billboard facing the Alex Fraser Bridge which prominently displays the premier’s face and the words, “Blame John Horgan.”
The BC Liberal Caucus used publicly-funded money earmarked for the Legislative Assembly to buy the ad space.
“It’s outrageous,” said Green Party leader Andrew Weaver, who backs the NDP-led coalition.
Wilkinson has defended the move, saying it’s his party’s “job” as the official opposition to “present the case to British Columbians that they’re paying too much tax and that’s what we’re doing with those billboards.”
