Head of phony conservative group is bag-man for Liberal Party

After my earlier post on the Trojan Horse group Alberta Blue Committee led by Liberal Christie Clark backer Ken Boessenkool, I was sent an interesting email on Clark’s unseemly fundraiser in Calgary.

Turns out that Boessenkol is working as a party fundraiser for the BC Liberals:

    Clearly the oil lobby has their representative in Victoria. They can count on her to push for the pipeline.

  2. Alberta Girl Says:

    Why is a BC politician fund raising in Alberta??? Weird.. I would definitely be asking some questions about this one.

  3. Bec Says:

    Well this does raise another eyebrow or two. What is really going on here?

    I am not going to give the ‘Blue Committee’ another moment of research. Being involved in BC politics, what?

    He has messed up his ‘Blue Commitee’s’ credibility, big time!

    Is he trying to build another western version of PC? Or is it Alliance?
    Ummm, ain’t going to happen! We have been there and done that!

    She’s a crass opportunist who is not even close to qualified to be in public office.

    As a free-enterpriser/Socred type, I would prefer the “dour Stalinist” Adrian Dix to be Premier, rather than Premier Snooki. At least he has a grasp on policies and issues.

  5. Martin Says:

    Here is another revealing page containing an e-mail, detailing the …. well, details of Boessenkools departure as Ms. Clarks campaign manager.

    He was also groomed from early on by Hill and Knowlton (a global lobbyist group) and followed Stephen Harper from the Preston Manning days.


    GCI has a dubious address under “BC Blue”

    And… he lobbied for Merck to push the Gardasil vaccine.

    I just have two questions:
    How does Mr. “Top 40 under 40”, have such a varied CV with so many political affiliations? And just what is his real agenda?
