Gordon Campbell DUI

  1. What's the deal with that?! How many of our premiers have to have scandals while in office? I have to admit, I HATE our current premier, but much as I might think him suffering is funny, this is embarassing.

    And he thought his claim to fame would be the 2010 Olympics...

    Wonder who we'll get as his replacement??

    Gordo sucks the big one and I think he is a poor role model for todays youth! Not to mention the fact that is is completely screwing up British Columbia! Out with Gordo! Out with Gordo! (chants the village people!) LEAVE OR BE LEAD OUT! Think before you act! Bad bad Gordo...

    He'll never leave office over this as most people seem very forgiving.... I'm just not one of them. I predict he will stay in office and be re-elected in the next election. Not because anyone really likes him, but because there is no serious opposition.

    Continues the chant:
    What was up with the mugshots? He was smiling. He says in the paper "I was grimacing..." What a laugh. He should resign, he is not a role model....

    Listen to all you guys...first of all, BooHoo. Secondly, one word says it all...Ralph! Seriously, Klein should be put on waivers.

    Ralph sucks, but he wasn't ever convicted of a crime was he? A drunk who stays home is just fine with me.

    Plus how sober to you have to be to manage Alberta well?! I am sure you could be intoxicated and say "Yeah, more oil money over here".:roll

    A lot of us would loose our job because of a conviction. He was driving almost twice over the legal limit. Something tells me he had a lot more than the 7 drinks he stated he had during this long evening.
    Did you see his wifes face? I think he is facing the biggest challenge at home.:chuckle

    Furgus, you have a good point. And for the most part he has been running the province loaded. Did you hear about the time last winter when he went to a homeless shelter well after last call and screamed at all the "bums to get jobs!" he tossed some cash on the floor and went on on preaching tirade. The press had a field day. Now I aint saying drunk driving is better but, to me, it was a realization of his attitudes that that has far more rammifications than being tipsy and driving.

    Gordo and Ralph could be clones of eachother! I hadn't heard about that incident, but it sounds like Gordon Campbell. He has absolute disdain for the poverty activists and labor in general (not to mention nurses!!!). Most of his policies sound like something Klein thought up, a lot of love for big business without considering the impact on regular people or the environment for that matter.

    Drunk drivng is reprehensible because one puts other innocent lives at risk. I have no sympathy for drunk drivers at all.
