A week from today, B.C. Liberals will choose their candidate in Vancouver–False Creek.
This gave me the bright idea of presenting campaign videos of the three candidates: former mayor Sam Sullivan, former MLA Lorne Mayencourt, and young lawyer Brian Fixter.
There's something about those B.C. Liberal campaign videos that stir our soul. They make our hearts soar and our pride in our city runneth over.
There are never images of urban blight or any other social problems in a B.C. Liberal campaign video.
They simply don't exist in the Best Place on Earth.
Here, everyone is good-looking, articulate, educated, successful, and reasonably prosperous. (Hey, no jokes about Mayencourt's personal bankruptcies!)
So you be the judge. Whose video do you prefer? Don't be too cruel to the kid—it's his first run for public office.
