"I struggled with alcohol, and that caused me to behave in ways that weren't healthy for me, or those around me. When the alcohol stopped, so did the fights. Violence, racism, and sexism are unacceptable. I've apologized unequivocally, and I do so again: to anyone I harmed, I am sorry” "Because of my past, I understand the challenges of young people in our society who are struggling with the same things I was — alcohol, addictions, anger. I know that they can do better, because I learned how to do better," Kinew said. Kinew attended sweat lodges "to purify himself" and participated in a sun dance event, during which he fasted for four days and pulled buffalo skulls by piercings cut into his body. "Suffice it to say, it shows a significant degree of commitment by the individual who attends," Miller said. Kinew also began attending regular Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. "While abstaining from alcohol, he has had no involvement in the justice system," Miller said. "He realizes this is a lifelong path he has to follow." I don’t know why I’m even biting on this, but @SpeedFlex27 The comparison to Bobby Hull.. Come on, I know you’re better than that. First of all, you’re comparing a guy who’s running for Premier to a wife beating, Hitler idolizing (and dead) hockey player. Second, there’s zero indication Bobby Hull showed any kind of remorse or accountability for his behaviour. Third, regardless of what party is in charge, healthcare is a mess everywhere in this country right now. It just so happens that the Manitoba PC party have deliberately and methodically used policy to make Manitoba health care worse. And so have the NDP in BC. They've done the same thing. Isn't it ironic that in evil Alberta, where the white supremacists, racists & Nazis play according to most here that I was on a year to 18 month long list to get my knee replacement done. I was expecting it to happen anywhere from this this coming November to sometime in the Spring of 2024. I first had a meeting with my surgeon in November last year. Then in February, I get a phone call saying the surgeon triaged my knee & put me up near the top because of the severity of the condition of the arthritis. I moved past thousands of others & had my surgery in April. Just five months after my first meeting. Eight to 12 months early. After the surgery, my surgeon spoke with me & said that after thirty years of doing knees, mine was the worst he ever saw. Yep, evil Alberta. Where no one cares about the patient. As far as beating up women? No one should get a pass & say they learned & now they're better. Kinew has abrigated his rights to be any kind of political leader. He's unfit to be Premier. Whether he's sorry or not. I know that the left wing accolytes here would never give anyone a second chance if they were a pro athlete or right wing politician. I've seen their posts from others who did this & there was never any kind of forgiveness from them. And now you say that Kinew deserves a second chance really only because of his politics. i can't imagine what would be said if this was Pierre Polievre. He'd be cut to shreds. The Bobby Hull reference was just to make a point. To poke the bear, so to speak. Edited yesterday at 12:41 AM by SpeedFlex27 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
