Recall Mungall over Site C, Green leader says

BC’s Green Party leader wants a recall campaign against Nelson-Creston MLA Michelle Mungall.

That comes as the New Democrats announced today they will push ahead with the Site C dam.

Andrew Weaver shared a video of Mungall at a Paddling for the Peace protest against the project in 2016.

Weaver told reporters today that he expects Mungall’s constituents will feel betrayed, even though the issue does not directly affect her riding.

That includes a recall petition against Nelson-Creston MLA Blair Suffredine in 2002.

The full video is below.
