The battle is so big because the stakes are so small

The Simon Fraser Student Society has had its "Group of 7," seven directors who did a few things some students thought were wrong, impeached. The details are available at the university's campus newspaper (take a Peak here).

These kids are so good as such a young age. They should go straight to the House of Commons to make comments about potted plants and female hounds.

Lang-quitlam BC Liberal fundraising dinner

Burquitlam MLA Harry Bloy and Iain Black showed the BC Liberal foothold is strong in the Tri-Cities last night. If selling out a sizable fundraiser is how the BC Liberals respond to last year's close call at the polls, Diane Thorne and Mike Farnworth of the NDP will have a tough time getting more NDP MLAs in what the Liberals' organizers like to call the Northeast Sector.

Bloy and company were joined by a full contingent of Langley MLAs, perhaps it was it also a joint fundraiser with the cash rich Langley ridings. Burnaby North MLA Richard Lee also put in an appearance as did a wide array of local junior level politicians including Coquitlam Mayor Maxine Wilson and failed federal and provincial Liberal candidates Jon Kingsbury and Greg Moore.

The evening highlighted what five years under the clear leadership of Gordon Campbell and his right-wing "liberalism" could do for a province that once again has a triple-A credit rating. Heck, even the majority former NDP Premiers are Liberal-friendly, at least federally, nowadays.

Attaboy, Bloy -- and Iain Black too.

My Dinner with Harry

Thursday night is Harry Bloy's annual fundraising dinner. For those that do not pay close attention to such matters, also in attendance are the government's other Coquitlam MLA Iain Black and special guest Premier Gordon Campbell.

The dinner is at the Executive Inn Hotel in Coquitlam and tickets can be had for the usual Premier's dinner fare. To get your tickets just call up Bloy, perchance at his office where BC Liberals like to do both government work and party fundraising.

Enjoy the chicken.

Sold Out Crowd for Solberg

The Hon. Monte Solberg, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, guested at a fundraiser for the Burnaby-New Westminster and the Richmond Tories last night in Richmond. The rock bottom ticket prices, as reported on Public Eye Online, allowed the Conservatives to fill their venue with new and old supporters alike.

At least two of their nominees were in attendance.
