A recently fired B.C. Conservative candidate has a beef with the party and has found a unique way to both announce he’s running as an Independent and strike back the party leader for firing him.
Boundary-Similkameen candidate Mischa Popoff was dismissed as a Conservative candidate on Friday over what Leader John Cummins said were insensitive and disrespectful statements about women.
In a YouTube video, Popoff appears standing in a fenced pasture with a young bull behind him and declares that he won’t be bullied by the Conservatives.
Popoff says the leader of the B.C. Conservative Party kicked him out because he’s too conservative, and he clarified the statements he made about the missing women’s inquiry.
As the bull rubs its head along Popoff’s backside and licks his pants, Popoff says he said that the inquiry was a waste of time because no police officers were fired or even reprimanded.
He says the Conservatives did better in Boundary-Similkameen than any other riding in the last election, and he questions Cummins’ leadership to just toss away a possible victory.
