Seeing as it is Boxing Day, the day after Christmas, we decided to share some info on what the BC Liberal leadership candidates found under their Christmas trees this Christmas. W are pleased to share this information.
First, Kevin Falcon received a gift wrapped endorsement from his good friend, Rich Coleman. Along with the endorsement came the stocking stuffer of Coleman not siphoning off the much needed support of BC Liberals from the Fraser Valley. All reports lead us to believe that Falcon is pleased with the fit of his gifts and intends on enjoying them through the coming months.
George Abbott also received his gift in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Bill Bennett, independent MLA (formerly a BC Liberal MLA infamous for “telling it like it is”) from the riding of Kootenay East gave Abbott a lovely gift. Bennett said; “…the only person who’s been talking a lot about change right from the beginning is George Abbott. I’d go so far as to say he might be our only hope.”
Abbott’s stocking stuffer was also from Bennett; he says that he’s not confident that the BC Liberal Party is salvageable. “In fact, if they choose the wrong leader I think it’s over. If they fail to change their constitution on February 12th I know it’s over.”
Apparently George Abbott is not too sure what to do with his gift from Bennett. The fit may not be as comfortable as Abbott would like; this may be one of those gifts where Abbott says to Bennett, “Thanks, but you shouldn’t have. No really, you shouldn’t have.”
The other candidate who got a very lovely gift is Christy Clark. Her nifty gift is a toy railway; apparently she has already named it “BC Rail.” However, seeing as this gift is so big, it will have to be shared with her family and friends. Clark’s brother Bruce and Mark Marissen, “the father of Clark’s children” (Clark’s ex-husband) will share this nifty toy railway. Early reports are that there is a no return policy on this railway so Clark is kind of stuck with it.
Not to be left out, Mike de Jong might also have a share in the toy railway. Nobody is too sure how they will work out the sharing details but it is said that BC Rail gift is so expansive that all will definitley have a turn playing with this one.
As this post is being prepared, Dr Moira Stillwell’s gifts have not yet been reported, much like the rest of her campaign activity.
So a Merry Christmas to all the BC Liberal leadership candidates! We know that they will be having fun with the Christmas gifts in the coming months.
