There’s an internal fight going on inside the BC Conservative Party over John Cummins’ leadership or lack there of and Cummins and his gang are showing how they continue to deal with dissent.
There has been a litany of resignations (see here) in the last couple of weeks and Cummins throws gasoline on the fire by publicly calling one of the board members who is demanding the party follow its constitutionally mandated leadership review process, a Judas:
“There’s always somebody that is going to disagree. He’s the one, I guess. I don’t perceive it as a huge threat by any stretch of the imagination,” said Cummins, adding it is unreasonable to believe that any leader could enjoy unanimous support.
“I hate to use a biblical reference but Christ had 12 apostles and one turned him in,” Cummins said.
“We share the same initials but I can’t rise from the dead and I can’t get unanimity on the board. I wouldn’t expect to be able to. He couldn’t. I can’t.” (see here)
Stay tuned as I’m being told that a letter of support for Cummins has been sent out “by the majority of the board” accusing this same director of trying to get a party membership list in order to “spread their divisive message”
What a gong show.
Update: Global picked up the story and John Daly shows exactly how the Liberals will use these biblical references against Cummins and the BC Conservatives (see here)
