This makes perfect sense as he was a yes man for the BC Liberals in his previous job.

It seems obligatory that half the BC Liberal caucus retires just before every election. Sharing our wealth, I guess. Such generosity. I guess it's so well-known it just isn't that newsworthy.

I don't have a problem with the likes of Darling and Johal seeking to run in an election. The various political parties have to draw their candidates from wherever they can and name recognition may well get them elected.

What irritates me the most is listening to them tell us why they have thrown their hats into the ring. The touchy feely crap they spew is beyond the pale. The leader of the political party they choose to run for will dictate how and what they vote for or against. Why don't they just tell the truth. They are hoping to get elected and get a guaranteed 4 year job that pays well and if they are really lucky, get elected for a second term which will also come with a pension that the majority of British Columbians can't even dream of.

I can understand a journalist moving into politics if they have were passionate about certain causes into their career and they want to champion these causes.
These two don't make that grade

One explanation for the political tendencies of journalists is that they, like politicians, are animated by a desire to change the world for the better. I've heard a lot about this idealism in both newsrooms and in caucus rooms but rarely seen it demonstrated. Mostly, journalists want to make a better world—but for themselves. They want recognition for their work, they want prizes, they want a raise, they want to appear in a better venue, they want higher status. Mostly, politicians want to make a better world—but for the constituents that can return them to office in the next election so they acquire more power, exercise it, and increase their status. Sometimes all this jockeying makes the world a better place. Sometimes it doesn't. But lip service to the ideal is never absent.
