A BC woman inspired a Twitter hashtag after a confrontation with BC Liberal leader Christy Clark in the aisle of a grocery store.

Clark was doing a walkthrough of the business, when a woman named Linda introduced herself to Clark.

She began to say “I would never vote for you because…” before she was interrupted and dismissed by Clark, who said “That’s why we live in a democracy.”

For reference, here’s the video of the interaction caught by CBC:

Clark’s dismissive reaction and response prompted many to to take to Twitter with the hashtag #IAmLinda, to proclaim their solidarity with Linda and make their own feelings about the BC Liberals and Christy Clark known as well.
