First, the following, from Bob Mackin:
What kinds of things was our fine Premier up to that kept her from dealing with the people's business?
Well, according to Vancouver Metro's David Ball at least, she spent some of her non-Ledge time running away the press, but not through tunnels as first suggestively reported.
Or some such thing:
...Metro and other journalists waiting outside (the BC Tech Summit at the Vancouver Convention Ctr) hoped to ask Clark about the growing scandal that’s dominated the news cycle just two months ahead of a pivotal provincial election. But Clark did not make herself available to the media...
...Editor's note: After this story ran, the premier's press secretary contacted Metro to state that the premier entered and exited the building through the front entrance (i.e. not through an underground tunnel). The story has been changed to reflect that.
(stuff in brackets, above, mine)
No word, however, from the Premier's office on whether or not her pants were still on fire when she did so.
