Okay, so I write a satire piece about a lawyer and I should expect he will send me a letter. I’ve lived long enough to realize the legal system has become a cliche…
So, without further delay, I present you my love letter from David Eby- the Mother Theresa of the BC Bar:
You have written that “it pains you” that I will not “help” you with your campaign. You believe you are entitled to my help, and that I must help you. You have some questions for me because I will not help you.
I recognize your basic claim, that you are asking me for the same accountability and transparency I ask for from others. And so, to your questions first:
There is no such thing as business class from Vancouver to Prince George. Even if there were, the BCCLA does not pay for business class.
Yes, I’m actually here in the North, having meetings, doing the work of the BCCLA.
No, the wine was not very good, but it was better than nothing, and I do like the odd glass of wine.
Yes, Air Canada was very late on Friday night, and it was frustrating to arrive at 1:00 a.m. Saturday morning in Prince George. Air Canada confirmed the delay was due to mechanical failure on the plane, and they replaced the plane.
Yes, bad wine in an airport restaurant and arriving in Prince George at 1 a.m. are First World Problems.
I seriously thought the article about Mr. Rosenberg was indeed, “flattering.”
Now that I have responded to your questions, I would like to tell you why I will not help you. I will use your latest blog post to illustrate concerns I have.
Your blog post is sexist throughout and in one section falsely attributes a sexist slur against the Premier to me, in quotation marks.
There are very vulnerable people who consume non-beverage alcohol like rice wine and are addicted to it and die from their addiction on our streets. You made fun of a serious community campaign to help save their lives. That really sucks.
Your repeated suggestions that I should be hit with a “horse sperm pie” and that I should be “bitchslapped” are freaking me out. I am increasingly concerned that you are unstable and potentially violent, or that someone who is unstable and potentially violent will take up your suggestions.
I will not work with you, or respond to you again.
