My hope that the BC Conservative’s would have swept out the deadwood like President Wayne McGrath at the AGM Oct 16 was dashed yesterday when the powers-that-be refused my membership renewal.
Below is the letter that I sent out explaining the latest installment in this dumb, dangerous game that is being played out.
After renewing my membership (which I believe I’ve held for 8 years) online Wednesday, I received an email from a person who I assume is on the current Board of Directors (no current Board member info is posted) asking me what my motives were for taking out a membership and if my answers suffice, he would “support” it.
Stunned, I replied wondering why he would want to know and why I needed his “support”? I did not receive an answer but did later get a notice that my membership was denied (see below).
Obviously this is due to my objections to how the Party is currently being led by President Wayne McGrath (aided by the TAG representatives as well as the previous and current Boards) and my recent email stating that I would be taking my concerns about Society Act infractions to the Registrar, Ron Townshend.
It now is apparent that this party is being run by those that will not take any criticism and if you dare to voice them, you will quickly be removed. Sadly, this is what is being offered as an alternative to the ruling BC Liberals.
I would be happy to discuss any and all details of the on-going party problems with anyone who would like to have the specifics.
