BC Conservative party president Wayne McGrath continues his stumbling bumbling ways with this quote in the Vancouver Sun on retiring Conservative MP Chuck Strahl:
“Mr. Strahl is not a member of our party, but he is a very fine conservative. If he wants to continue in politics we’d certainly welcome him to the party, but there’s been no discussion at this point.”
Now, why wouldn’t the BC Cons get on the phone and ask Strahl? I mean jeesh, they’ve asked 3 Liberals (see here) so far and didn’t hesitate to ring up well-known BC Liberal supporter Stockwell Day (see here).
I know that the party brainiacs are all pinning their hopes on John Cummins who I think would make a great leader and would definitely support if he did, but to have a coronation for him organized by Randy White is just plain stupid.
The BC Conservatives have a great chance to stir up some interest with a leadership race but once again, they never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity. (see here)
