...To learn that this pay-to-play thing is going on in the land of BC Liberalism:
"...At a recent dinner hosted by Simon Fraser University chancellor Anne Giardini, 10 guests paid $10,000 each to mingle with Ms. (Christy) Clark and later sit down to a multicourse dinner. At a party fundraiser in Kelowna, a small group who paid $5,000 each got quality time with the Premier at a non-advertised, private reception before the main event. According to a source, admission to some of the more exclusive get-togethers with Ms. Clark can be as high as $20,000..."
I mean, seriously, fool us once, shame on them.
Fool us twice (for the 17,432nd time), shame on who, exactly?
All of which brings me back to Bigger E and my Lotuslandian version of an old Phil Ochs tune...
And, based on the latest over at Norm Farrell's place, we might soon learn more about apparent pay-to-play #17,433, citizen-based fundraising to pay for things our government should tell us for free willing, of course.
It's quite interesting to see the hard and fast pushback from the Clarklandian 'digital influencers' on all this (guess the wizards have focussed/polled on this and know they are in danger here; you can see a wee bit of the danger/fed-up-with-this-crap zone in the comments to Mr. Mason's story linked to, above, I reckon)....Essentially, the influencers are screeching long and loud about the Dippers' previous fundraisers...As for screeching/mentioning/whispering/miming about the NDP's previous calls to get big donations, regardless their origin, out of the game?...Well, not so much of that.
