Yale-Lilooet legislator Harry Lali is once again calling on New Democrats to start kicking ass and chewing bubblegum. This past Saturday, Mr. Lali was at the Sandman Hotel in Castelgar to deliver the keynote speech for a fundraiser benefitting federal British Columbia Southern Interior parliamentarian Alex Atamenko. And during that speech, attendees tell us Mr. Lali repeated his message that the federal and provincial New Democrats should quit pretending to be Liberals and start acting like social democrats. The former transportation and highways minister made a similar pitch at the New Democrat's Interior-Okanagan community conference back in October.
