BCers are in love with their new NDP Attorney General

There’s a ‘David Eby Appreciation Thread’ on Reddit, and it loves B.C.’s attorney general

I suppose BC's one percenters (read: Andrew Wilkinson & the BC liberals) don't believe in sharing the wealth. Too bad!

What are the chances that David Eby will get re-elected in 3 years time, given the protests by his constituents over the "school tax" (0.2% property surtax on that portion of properties assessed in excess of $3 million)?

Most of the voters in his riding are renters. In turn, most of the of protesters are from outside his riding, particularly Vancouver Quilchena, which is represented by BC LIberal leader Andrew Wilkinson. There's a popular misconception that most West Side homeowners live in Eby's riding when in fact only a fraction do. And those homeowners voted BC Liberal last time anyway.

Come on NDP let’s not be naive Politics is a dirty game Do you think for one second if the tables were turned that the Liberals would not already have a public inquiry up and running  NDP you need to be vicious and mean. We need a Public Inquiry into money laundering, and we need it now!!!

By distributors, do they mean the individual pharmacies who dispensed the opioids?

Are hospitals also listed?
