It really doesn’t get more vile then what Liberal premier Christy Clark has done in regard to politicizing the suicide of Amanda Todd.
Clark had been caught intentionally excluding Todd’s mother Carole from the hastily set-up bullying forum (see here) and then when the media firestorm started to build, Liberal Education Minister Don McRae was sent out to do damage control:
Minister Don McRae said anti-bullying experts advised his ministry against inviting Carol Todd to the conference
Except that was a lie:
Kevin Cameron, one of the experts who advised the government in the lead up to the summit .said he did not tell the Ministry of Education to keep the Port Coquitlam, BC mother from attending (see here)
You’d think by now, Christy Clark would be smart enough to apologize but chooses instead to triple-down with this ‘gem’ said at a press scrum:
“We lost Amanda and it was a tragedy but we should learn from that. She would want that from us“ (see here)
Yup, Christy Clark knows what Amanda Todd would have wanted just like Clark knew that Amanda would have wanted the ‘star’ of the reality TV show Real Housewives of Vancouver to be a forum host (see here).
Is it possible for a politician to be more crass and shameless than Christy Clark?
