The big news item today in BC was the massive climb-down from Liberal Premier Christy Clark on calling an election before the fixed-date May 2013. Clark had declared before that she needed a mandate from the people and wouldn’t rule an election out even when repeatedly asked by the media 5 days ago.
So, besides spouting yet another lie (newly discovered “international financial situation and the instability of elections” as the reason she’s flipped-flopped even though her caucus would probably revolt knowing that they would lose) a very interesting tidbit was revealed by those in the media who were shut out of this exclusive interview on Global.
Apparently the condition for Brian Coxford of Global to get this interview was that he promised not to get any reactions from the opposition parties which would then spoil Christy’s messaging.
This isn’t sitting well with some others in the BC media who up until very recently have been fawning admirers more than journalists and giving Clark an incredibly free ride.
Blood is in the water now and look for much more damning stories on Clark from here on in as I believe the missive from corporate headquarters is that Christy has to go.
