In March, Liberal MP candidate Dan Veniez was allowed by the BC Conservative brainiacs to introduce their hand-picked candidate the recently converted Liberal Rick Peterson at his nomination media event even though Veniez is a hard-core Harper-hater (see here).
Not only did the BC Con back-room kiddies allow Veniez to become a media face for them, they were tickled pink about it all as I confirmed with the operative who set it all up.
And today I get to say ‘I told you so’ to these not-ready-for-prime time BC Conservatives who think they are ever so smart:
Veniez - John Cummins, leader of the fledgling Conservatives, is a crotchety social conservative, former Reform Party MP, and permanent Stephen Harper backbencher.
Cummins and his party are against absolutely everything a progressive and modern province like B.C. is for: the separation of church and state, religious tolerance, gay rights, and the reproductive rights of women. If they had their way, capital punishment would be the law of the land and First Nations would have no treaty rights or “special status” of any kind. (see here)
But hey, what do I know right?
Can’t wait for what this high profile BC Conservative ‘backer’ has to say during the upcoming election.
