Calling their bluff

It looks like the Eagleridge Bluffs battle will be making a court appearance in Vancouver sometime soon. Details pending.

Something's Fishy, or Farming Out the Help

CKNW reports this morning that the B.C. NDP's Vancouver-Burrard Carole James fundraiser last night at Stanley Park featured a meal of farmed salmon. Farmed salmon has been a significant issue for the past several years and the ethical thing to do for many people is to request wild salmon. Unfortunately, the NDP did not make that request for yesterday's event and had a bit of a blowback from at least one attendee according to the radio station.

Forget martial arts, you could push them over with your pinkie finger

Poor Carole James. Today's Vancouver Sun put her 2005 electoral success in perspective.

The NDP almost picks up enough seats to form government (just a few hundred well placed votes away from provincial power) and now she sits in opposition to the most successful government in a generation. By the paper's account, the NDP stands no chance against this government and may be in a worse position now with 33 members than in 2001 when the New Democrats were reduced to two talented MLAs.

A year into the BC Liberal's second mandate, the NDP could be headed downhill fast.

Tai Chi Campbell

One of yesterday's highlights at the B.C. Liberal regional conference was Gordon Campbell performing tai chi moves, no doubt as part of his fittest jurisdiction kick. Somehow this brings flashbacks of Chuck Strahl and Stockwell Day's unite the right ninja moment several years back.

Long live the Gord

Today's BC Liberal love in at the University Golf Club was highlighted, as always, by the keynote address from Leader and B.C. Premier Gordon "Call me Gord" Campbell. Campbell waxed poetic about his government's accomplishments and future goals to a very friendly but apathetic crowd.

This is the second in a series of such events. The last event was on the Island at the start of April.
