BC Liberal MLA Harry Bloy: Clark’s only caucus supporter, incapable of answering a question, an appallingly bad minister, forced to resign for leaking private information, demonstrates his loose grasp on facts and even looser grasp on honour and decorum.
Today in the Legislature
Harry Bloy: “The NDP’s energy critic has acknowledged the benefits that smart meters will have if customers want to monitor their energy consumption. In this House he admitted: “Certainly, I’m really excited about smart metering.” I guess he was really excited. I’d like to know how excited he was, because he seems to speak out of both sides of his mouth. I can’t figure it out.
“Is he excited because the Leader of the Opposition can’t fraudulently do something against the consumers of British Columbia, can’t lie and cheat and steal money from the citizens of British Columbia? Is that why he speaks out of both sides of his mouth? It really makes me wonder how a Leader of the Opposition can steal from the public.
Deputy Speaker: Member.
H. Bloy: Is this what we’re trying to do here?
Deputy Speaker: Member. Member, I will caution you.
H. Bloy: You know, sometimes it really makes me wonder about the Leader of the Opposition stealing from the public, fraud. I wonder how he proposed to his wife. Is he like his good friend, Svend Robinson? I wonder how he did that.
Deputy Speaker: Member. Member.
H. Bloy: I’m just wondering. How did he do that?
Deputy Speaker: The member for North Island on a…
Point of Order
C. Trevena: …point of order, Madam Speaker. The member for Burnaby-Lougheed is using unacceptable, unparliamentary behaviour, unparliamentary language and inferring the good name of the Leader of the Opposition. I would hope that he will withdraw and apologize.
Deputy Speaker: Hon. members, the point of order is well taken. I will ask the member to withdraw.
H. Bloy: I withdraw.
I predict Harry Bloy will be forced to withdraw from the next election. This is one fool who will not be running next time. His support for his leader speaks volumes about the kind of party the BC Liberals are at this point in time.
It also suggests that BC Liberal tempers are running high as the end draws ever nearer. Their looming defeat is now taking on an air of mercy.
