So says NDP leader John Horgan about comments from BC Liberal MLA Patt Pimm.
The comments were in a 2012 email obtained by the Globe and Mail newspaper.
While complaining about the Agricultural Land Commission, Pimm says “Here is an opportunity to actually muster up some support for our team but instead we will ignore it and go out and find some way to give the Indians more money which doesn’t get me one vote!”
Horgan says he’s disappointed.
“To see and hear of blatant racism within the cabinet and the caucus of the BC Liberal party is profoundly frustrating and disappointing.”
Premier Christy Clark is also condemning the remarks.
“Unacceptable, they don’t reflect government’s policy, government’s direction.”
Pimm himself has issued a written apology.
The former agriculture minister is undergoing cancer treatment.
