Famous for saying “fffantastic”, he also said some pretty offensive shit like “if someone is able to work and refuses to do so, they had best pick up a shovel or I’ll give them a shovel.” He resigned in disgrace after the Fantasy Gardens scandal but reappeared on the political scene to fight the HST.

Usage: “The Zalm is just another in a long list of smarmy, scandal-ridden B.C. premiers…”explore-the-lexicon
