Rafe

Word from the Deer Lake Pavillion was new NDP voter Rafe Mair was out in force today with Burnaby NDP candidates. The four NDPer were more than happy to have the attention and support for the former Socred cabinet minister and radio talk show host for the day.

Yeah so?

Free country isn't it?

Rafe can support who he wants can he not?

Well, surprise surprise.

A lame, old-fart, has-been of a media personality decides to channel his old-age bitter senility into supporting a party that's pretty much his political equivalent...

And we're supposed to be interested?

Rafe's influence died a long time ago, and few if any mourned its passing.

Rafe is an old coot, but let's turn this around.

Would the same things be said if he endorsed the BC Liberals in Burnaby?

He has been a kook for a while now. How many young voters, under 30, even know who he is?

Rafe has had a remarkable impact on a lot of things in this province. He was almost alone initially raising concxerns about farmed salmon. Now he is raising concerns about run of the river private power projects. No one listens to him? Dream on.

Those old Socreds ... you never could tell what kind of ideology they actually believed in because they were a big tent party.

better to be a big tent party, and have lots of volunteers than a little tent party with not enough volunteers.

Look around, they're everwhere.

The President, the Eecutive Director, one idiot Regional Organizer, a few candidates, quite a few volunteers, all ex-Socreds.

There's little left of the original BC Liberals led by Art Lee and Gordon Wilson and run by May Brown and Christie Clark.

Rafe Mair could have ended his career gracefully and been remembered as an influential British Columbian, but instead he tried to force his career to continue as he became increasingly more insane from old age. He's the definition of "cranky old fart". He's a joke and a footnote in BC politics. The NDP should not even want his support.

Such vitriol.
Rafe Mair is a hero.

SHAME on those who have nothing good to say about a man who clearly has the best long term interests of this province not only in his heart, but on his sleeve.

Rafe Mair is a hero??? hahaha

...but I do love watching his desperate attempts to regain relevance.

He should stick to eating his cream of wheat and yelling at children when their baseballs land in his yard.
