This idiot says that these women need to get a job, so they don't put themselves at risk by needing to hitch-hike. I've seen lots of young aboriginal women hitch-hiking in Tofino. They're often trying to get to and from work. There's no public transit, and poverty prevents them from owning a car. Even if they did own a car, they usually can only get a job at minimum wage level, or perhaps slightly more, so they couldn't afford to maintain it. I suppose they could just walk from Esowista to town, it's only a couple hours, on a narrow road, in fast moving traffic. And then walk home again after working a shift. That would only be a 15-16 hour day. Sounds like a good solution, if your're a heartless, arrogant, uncaring, judgemental bastard. Does this Conservative candidate live in the real world? This Harper Government disgusts me, this is actually how they choose to think of the citizens of Canada.
