Premier Photo Op is a compulsive liar

Alex Tsakumis reported that Christy Clark and her backers orchestrated a virtual coup d’état, seizing control of the BC Liberal Party, sabotaging the leadership contest with phantom voters.

She grew accustomed to wilful and conscious lying and now relies on a continuous stream of falsehoods to promote herself and the government she leads. The corporate media assists by ignoring fabrications, even when they are readily apparent.
