With deflector spin phasers set to eleven, the PAB-Botian flack-hackery has doubled down on the "fentanyl-found-in-weed" claim from premier Christy Clark that was de-bunked by Lotuslandian police officials earlier today.
And to do so they went all the way back to that place they had their boss dump $150K off the back of a podium for no good reason at all...
That's right, Massett on Haida Gwaii, where the Horsemen are plugged right into all that is going on in the Downtown Eastside, apparently.
Mike Laanela of the MoCo has the follow-up story:
...The premier's office pointed to an RCMP warning last week that marijuana laced with fentanyl may be circulating in the Haida Gwaii community of Masset.
"Masset RCMP has reason to believe that there is marijuana available for sale in Masset that is laced with fentanyl," said the statement.
But Cpl. Madonna Saunderson told the CBC the warning was based solely on concerns raised by community members and there "was never any marijuana seized or handed to police" to back up the claims...
Even when she makes stuff up out of whole cloth that very fine PAB-Botian army (that we pay for) will still attempt to cover for our good premier.
I wonder which way Mikey-Mike will go come Sunday?
(Update: Sunday Nov 20/16...Mr. Smyth of the Province did the right thing)
And as for the minister actually responsible for this type of stuff?
Well, he says that facts don't matter as long as you scare the crap out of people.
Or some such shadowy shadow of a possibility-type thing:
...B.C. Public Safety Minister Mike Morris said on Friday that he hadn't spoken to the premier about where she got her information, but he said, even if there was no hard evidence, her message was worthwhile.
"I'm looking at it from a public safety perspective here, and if there's a shadow of a possibility that fentanyl can be laced into marijuana or any other substance that we have out there, we need to be as vocal and vigilant as we can to make sure people are aware of that, so that's where I'm coming from," he said...
