"I'll tell you what I don't like, having done this for a long time, is when you talk to a lot of politicians, you feel like you are getting something rehearsed. You feel like you are getting the line, or the talking point, or whatever. . . .just get out in front of it and explain it so that people know. Because the more you talk about it, the less of a problem there is. Why can't politicians understand this?"Horgan, in response:
". . . [Harry Bloy] just kept repeating the last words his handler told him to say and he looked foolish, and Harry's not a foolish fellow. But, he sure looked like it . . .
Talk from your heart. Say what you mean and people will embrace that. If you make a mistake, admit it and they'll probably forgive you. . .
". . . The repetition of the message box bores me to tears . . . "
Visit CKNW's Audio Vault and listen to the 2pm hour, March 18, particularly the discussion of fair taxation near the bottom of the hour. Horgan also talks about inability of the utilities commission to examine important issues related to BC Hydro and rate increases.
