Provincial New Democrat legislator John Horgan met one of his hairiest constituents over the weekend. Last week, the Goldstream News Gazette reported there had been multiple sightings of a lone black bear in Langford. And, on Saturday, the bear dropped by the Malahat-Juan de Fuca MLA's backyard. A neighbour captured the moment on camera - a photograph Mr. Horgan has now posted on his Facebook page. "I go away for a day and the place goes to the bears," the MLA wrote. "This fellow took a liking to our crab apples. We are in bear country folks. Pick your ripe fruit or something else will."
