Translink Referendum Shuffle (ctd)... The Good, The Bad, And The Shugly.


As we've noted before, the only real winners in this excercise in total abdication (for a creature that they both created and control) by the BC Liberal government will be the flack-hackeries.

On both sides.

And now, via Bob Mackin, we learn a new flack has climbed aboard the shuffle train:

...Broadcaster Bill Good signed-off from his CKNW talkshow for the last time on Aug. 1, 2014, capping a 50-year career in TV and radio. But he says he’s not done yet.

Good is back in front of a microphone as the moderator of the Yes camp’s telephone town halls, which launched March 2 at Vision Vancouver-ally Stratcom...

But wait!

That's only the half of it, because....

...Good said he was approached by TransLink contractor Kirk and Co. Consulting and agreed to do the job strictly under the condition that he act as a moderator, not as an advocate for the Yes side.

“I’m thoroughly enjoying it,” Good said...

So it would appear that the good Mr. Good from Shillville figures that he has layed down the law so that he can have his cake and eat it too.


Perhaps he has figured out how to be half pregnant.

Oh He's been fully full of it for fifty years.

Bill didn't plan to disappear. The TransLink gig is is addition to his job as voice of the high interest home equity lender who'll give money to anyone with sufficient equity to ensure the lender and their lawyers get paid from the foreclosure proceeds. Some people really have no shame.

Even back on the olden times local Hockey Night broadcasts?

Say it ain't so.



Missed that one.

Sounds like one of the genius' at Corus should turn that it into some crackerjack almost, but not quite, paid promotional blockbuster programming.

Or some such thing.
