This Day In Snookland...The Triple McGuinty.


As Bob Mackin notes, it's more than just Ms. Miller:

...Miller was paid $154,000 for two months work in the Ontario government last year, then came west and joined Premier Christy Clark’s BC Liberal campaign last winter. She was named the party’s executive director last fall. Read more about it here.

Clark told B.C. reporters that Miller has “utmost integrity,” but it was up to Miller whether to speak to OPP detectives. Ontario NDP critic Peter Tabuns, a member of the committee investigating the gas plant scandal, wrote to Clark, asking for Miller to be freed up so she can testify again, because new evidence came to the fore.

Miller testified last August, the same month as Don Guy, who was a key strategist on the BC Liberal campaign. Ben Chin, another import from the Ontario Liberals, testified via closed-circuit TV last fall...


It is not Ms. Miller's (or Mr. Guy's or Mr Chin's) integrity that is at stake here.

But rather Ms. Clark's.

Interestingly, another member of that flack-hacking triumvirate that the good Mr. Guy is part of popped-up on our radar screen recently...More on that later.

Annualized out to $924,000 - that's almost BC Ferries CEO money!

or a new wooden muffin rack for the speaker's chair..

Yes, I think it's a typo - you mean $154,000 for 2 years.

No he's right. Life partner Faist was also under contract to provide "computer services" to the Liberals until 2 days after this story broke http://www.caledonenterprise.com/news-story/4439983-tech-expert-in-gas-plant-scandal-had-contract-with-liberal-party/

Is that 'utmost' integrity the same kind of integrity Ken Boessenkool projected until suddenly, he didn't?

Ms Clark sure has a way with words.

Nice work if you can get it!

CC uses trigger words like ├Ąbsolutely" and ├╝tmost" to warn those who pay attention that she is about to tell a lie...again

No source is given (which is not unusual) so I looked at her Linkedin profile...

Executive Director
Today's BC Liberals
October 2013 – Present (7 months)

Today's BC Liberals Campaign Team
February 2013 – May 2013 (4 months)

Deputy Chief of Staff (Strategy & Communications)
Office of the Premier of Ontario
May 2012 – February 2013 (10 months)

To me it looks like the 4 month gap between May 2013 and October 2013 is the time frame BM is referring to where Miller went east for over $2500 / day.
