Congratulations to recent Conservative MP John Cummins on today’s acclamation as leader of the BC Conservative Party.
I’m not thrilled about him being the only candidate for the leadership but that blame rests on the parties brainiacs like president Wayne McGrath, Randy White and VP Jeff Bridge and doesn’t reflect poorly at all on Cummins. A good race would have brought much needed new members to the party not to mention a lot of desirable media coverage.
Anyway, now for the hard work…getting money, candidates and decent party policy in place with two issues being front and center.
1) Cummins needs a better answer for why he voted for the HST as a MP and why he doesn’t support the way the Liberals implemented it.
2) The vote-splitting question which the Liberals and their friendly media cohorts are already playing up. An example of that can be found here
Good luck to Cummins and he has my 100% support for what it is worth.
