And then you've got the Premier taking on one of the Victoria City Council members for being anti-Police....
"My thoughts on that individual are not printable. I will say that I spoke with Mayor Helps today and assured her I do not view the city council in Victoria as a mirror image of Mr...
From last August... and it's getting worse:
