Christy Clark intentionally runs a red light on son’s dare


In a profile mainly focusing on Christy Clark and her son Hamish:

In her son’s bag is the pizza and Krispy Kreme doughnut [Christy] Clark packed for his lunch

by Vancouver Sun reporter Jonathan Fowlie, comes this shocking illegal and dangerous driving by Clark:

“Let’s see you go through this red light,” Hamish challenged as they pulled up that morning, at 5:15 a.m., to an abandoned Vancouver intersection.

“I might. Don’t test me,” Clark replies.

“Yeah. Go ahead.”

“Should I?”

“There’s no one.”

“Would you go through? You shouldn’t because that would be breaking the law,” she says.

And with that the car has already sailed underneath the stale red stoplight and through the empty intersection.

“You always do that,” says Hamish. (see here)

Quite the mother teaching her son life-lessons huh?

    Running a red light alone is bad enough, but intentionally and with your child in the car….that could be considered child endangerment. Driving is not a game. And…if she has to pack a doughnut in his lunch, couldn’t she have at least picked a Canadian one?

    If she can be so cavalier about her child’s life, how does anyone expect her to treat the province with nay respect?

      That should be enough to do her in as a mother let alone a politician, bad example for both. She’s really showing a lot of immaturity too.

    Oops! I meant any. I hope it’s ok that I shared this on Twitter and FB.

    The comments at the Vancouver Sun are very negative, about 10% for Clark,the rest completely negative,even the ones that aren’t pro-Dix. What a piece of “fluff” psuedo-journalism, the Sun should be embarrassed!

    After talking to Liberals locally,I think many of the Party fail to recognize the anger people have for them. We’ll take a lot of crap from our politicians, but after Gordon Campbell blatantly lied about the HST, we have been simmering,waiting for the day of revenge,and that day is May 14th.

    The scare tactics are being repeated often enough to make one nauseous. I went to Christy’s cheerleader session here a couple of days ago, where she preached to the converted. There were maybe ten people there under fifty years old, and the optimism seemed forced.

    Monday’s televised debate looms very important. I doubt Clark can do enough there to turn the voters around, even if she promises free beer for everyone.

    Wonder if Christy will run for the federal Liberals in 2015.

    Seriously stupid. Remember when in labour with No. 1 offspring and husband ferrying me to hosptal: late at night, serously miserable weather, we stopped at every light. Got there in time.

    Would NEVER EVER dream of pulling this stunt in front of offsprings. Illegality aside, this is a seriously example to set for a child who is in the ‘thirteen and infallible – fourteen is perfect – fifteen is pluperfect – sixteeen is infallible – seventeen is insufferable – eighteen is human we hope” cycle.

    Should have said ‘seriously BAD example”.

    Where is the MSM on this?

  7. Enkidu Says:

    Christy Clark, like all Gliberals, believes laws are for little people.

    • Liz J Says:

      She can believe laws are for little people all she wants but disobeying traffic laws can kill, not only yourself but others too. Not something she should be laughing off.
      If I were a Conservative in BC I’m afraid I’d have to vote Conservative.

      • don morris Says:

        Many of us will vote Conservative,and if we’re lucky, force a minority government.

  10. Meliora Cogito Says:

    To “run a red light” implies not to even attempt at stopping at the red light which is not what happened.
    She stopped, then proceeded through the red light when she deemed it was safe to do so. I dare any of you to claim you’ve never done the same in the middle of the night at an empty intersection.
    There was a time in this province when intersection traffic lights went to flashing red mode during the overnight hours, turning those intersections in to four-way stops. That it no longer happens in Vancouver/Victoria or elsewhere is ridiculous.
    My only question to CC is why she did it with a reporter in the car – did she not think there would not be some consequences?
