It’s fire time in BC.

Real leadership means speaking the words, recognizing facts and realities for people, and saying leader-y kinds of things like empathic comments that reflect understanding, like an acknowledgement that things are changing thus making BC more vulnerable to this huge fire risk, like we have many smart people exploring risks and coming up with plans to make sure this will happen less in the future.

Instead, we have no leaders. They’re silent, on vacation or while in the city [Harper], living the contemptuous life of having so little respect for citizens that they simply refuse to speak about Canadians’ lives and real, imminent fears of forest fires and air quality crises.

October 19, my fellow citizens. That’s when we #HeaveSteve, and two years later in BC.

One thought on “Where Are Our Leaders?”

  1. I thought that yesterday. Western Canada and the NWT burning up and not one word from our PM. Or any of the other leaders but the PM should be the main one.
