Alberta Diary: Caught in an apparent conflict like Chuck Strahl? No problem! Just double down!

Manning Centre-Security Intelligence Review Committee Chair and Enbridge lobbyist Chuck Strahl. Below: Former would-be Reform Party prime minister Preston Manning; Reform Party prime minister in waiting Jason Kenney. All these slightly out-of-focus profile shots were taken by your blogger during his infiltration of the 2013 Manning Centre conference in Ottawa. When people at the top levels ...

BigCityLib Strikes Back: B.C. Conservative Party Prepares To Implode

…if it hasn’t already yet.  Ian (Is Hitler To Blame?  Men Love Sluts!) Tootil is back in; relatively sane leader John Cummins is apparently on his way out.  Who knows, maybe kooky boy Dean Skoreyko, who played a significant role in the coup that hobbled Cummins and crippled the BCCP, will run to replace the man?  After ...

BigCityLib Strikes Back: Ian Tootill…

...is toast., as I predicted he would be.  Why?  Because the B.C. Conservatives may grab a handful of seats this time out and don’t want their best shot at respectability in ages queered by weirdos. PS.  I am totally enjoying the B.C. election right now.  We’re up to, what four candidates who’ve had to step ...

BigCityLib Strikes Back: The Stench Of Death Engulfs Them

BC Libs are going down in flames, and I don’t care.  They’re lucky the BC Conservatives have imploded.  That might mean the difference between a mere thumping and a Dix Super-Majority. That is all.

BigCityLib Strikes Back: B.C. Is Special

From The G&M: The Conservatives have always seemed like a party that was a few slices short of a loaf. For years it hung around the fringes of the B.C. political scene, switching mostly unknown leaders between elections while fighting a reputation for attracting oddballs and religious zealots. To the extent that it existed at ...

BigCityLib Strikes Back: Tory Turmoil In Beautiful B.C.

You heard it here first…It was only a matter of time before John Cummins’ bovine stubbornness and deep-seeded arrogance would be rewarded with a full-on mutiny. And you thought the federal Libs were fratricidal.  And this is all apparently over the fat that Cummins’actually wants to draw a salary from party coffers rather than rely on ...

BigCityLib Strikes Back: John Cummins To Bail On B.C. Conservatives?

Dean Skoreyko may be a few cans short of a six-pack, but he does seem to have an in with the B.C. Conservative Party.  So when he writes that party leader John Cummins will resign next week, I would certainly pay attention, through perhaps not place any bets on the matter.  And when I read ...

BigCityLib Strikes Back: Crazy Guy Has Inside Track On BC Conservatives

Dean Skoreyko is an angry flake, perhaps best known for getting thrown out of the BC Conservative Party. But he still seems to have connections in that particular political clan, and he was blogging the story of an incipient party coup for weeks before the MSM caught on.  The short story, the dickey doo, as we ...

BigCityLib Strikes Back: Attack Ads That Must Go Unwritten

 B.C’s Conservative Party took a step towards reswpectability today by refusing the membership application of one Dean Skoreyko.  Dean, who blogs as B.C. Blue, is best known as the BC Con spokesperson who, when confronted with potential floor crosser MLA Blair Lekstrom, said: It’s too late for Lekstrom to reverse his HST position…. “You can’t stand up ...
