Last weekend Dave sent a whole lot of us off on a chase to find Christy Clark's FedConOp #1.
And it turned out that that person, who was part of the Three Amigos from Harper Land, was hired just three days after the BC Liberal Party selected the current (not)Premier.
Anyway, in a coda I almost missed because he updated the original post, twice!, Dave had this to say, which I think gets right to the heart of the matter:
...Keep in mind, despite the fact that this may be the most accidental post I've ever done, that the significance of this Harper infiltration is profound. This is an endeavour to Americanize not the just politics, but the way politics is done in this country. This is the Reform movement at work. From the Ontario PCs, to the Toronto mayor's office, to the Alberta Wild Rose Party, to the BC Liberals, this is an attempt at a Reform power grab...
I think that rings true.
But I also think that there is another side to this story.
And that is the side occupied by those who made the politically expedient decision to let the Reformists do the grabbing.
*And just who does does this Dave fellow think he is with all these updates anyway?....Sheesh!
