Last night we noted that Alex Tsakumis thinks Suzanne Anton, who was earlier rebuffed by the fine, creme-sheened folks of Vancouver-Quilchena is going to be parachuted into creme-free Fraserview.
You know, the riding where Kash Heed's campaign smeared the Dipper candidate Gabriel Yiu in 2009.
Which is also the same riding where Mr. Yiu will run this May.
And guess who the Wizards and their foot soldiers in the legislature were smearing today, with a complete false equivalency that even the proMedia folks can understand.
You guessed it...
Hon. B. Bennett: I'm sorry that the fact that I come from the Kootenays offends the member from Vancouver Island. He has three members from the Kootenays in his own caucus. I'm not sure how they're going to feel about his slight. In any case, hon. Speaker, perhaps the member will think that this is more relevant.
Perhaps the member who asked the question could tell us exactly who Gabriel Yiu is. Gabriel Yiu has collected almost $375,000 of public money since 2007, and what did he do? What was Gabriel Yiu up to? Well, Gabriel Yiu, according to his own website, was an adviser to the B.C. NDP opposition. He facilitated "unprecedented communication outreach into the Asian immigrant community at large, as well as cultivating…."
It's all deflector-spike-spin-all-the-time these days with these people.
Essentially, they are saying that...
The fact that Mr. Yiu has a government job (thus the terrible, awful $$ numbers over six years...try the long division) and ran as a candidate is the same thing as being a government-funded caucus staffer or government-funded inner circle Wizard who used their job to hatch political party smear sites and/or funnel government information to political party databases.
Why would these people engage in this twisted pretzel logic to conflate such clearly different situations?
Because if all parties are 'equally' guilty, nobody is really guilty, right?
Which is what one of the chief satellite-circle Wizards is now saying outside the legislature.
Or some such thing.
