B.C. premier apologizes for wrongly alleging NDP hacked party website

B.C. premier apologizes for wrongly alleging NDP hacked party website – The Globe and Mail – Ms. Clark said in a conference call with reporters Friday that she had left a voicemail apology for Mr. Horgan, who had threatened legal action unless the premier apologized and retracted the allegation.

“I apologized to John for comments that I made earlier this week,” Ms. Clark told reporters. “It is further proof of the fact that when we jump to conclusions and we make a mistake, we should own up to it.

The communications director for the BC Liberals initially raised the issue of unauthorized access in a series of tweets this past Monday, as he addressed how a columnist for The Province newspaper obtained a document containing supporters’ personal information.

In a subsequent interview with The Vancouver Province and The Vancouver Sun, streamed live on Facebook, Ms. Clark went further, alleging the NDP was responsible for the hack. She was talking about NDP suggestions that the next provincial election will be a tough one when she said, “We saw them trying to hack into our website the other day.”
