For those that might find it kind of amusing that a NDP leader was ‘caught’ without a transit pass, you should stop and think for a minute how this became public knowledge.
Besides Vancouver Sun reporter Kelly Sinoski somehow believing BC NDP leader Adrian Dix being issued a warning by Transit police for not having a valid SkyTrain fare is even a story, it’s the question of how she received this information. (see here)
I’d love to know how a reporter from the Liberal-backing Vancouver Sun just happens to run across Dix being given a reprimand by the police? I can’t imagine that even if this is public knowledge she wasn’t tipped-off to it by a government worker. Remember the Rob Ford 911 call incident.
I’ve asked Sinoski how she came upon it and will update if I get an answer but won’t hold my breath as a newspaper that won’t print a word about Christy Clark’s deep BC Rail corruption ties won’t likely be very forthcoming about a hit-piece on her political opponent.
