CC4BC - Non partisan?

Postby flamingfingers » Jan 13th, 2013, 6:51 pm

What a laugh!! They are as darkly ChristyLiberal as you can get! And Phil Hockstein and his Independent Contractors of BC Union are front and center.

CC4BC: Liberal Lobbyists behind ‘non-partisan’ group
Posted on January 13, 2013 by Ian

Deja Vu

I owe this one to a tweet from Rod Smelser.

Like 2009 and 2005 a number of “citizen’s groups” are springing up full of good advice and spin to help voters make up their minds as we head into an election.

In other words, they bash the NDP and whoever leads them.

One of the first out of the gate this time around is CC4BC, a “Free Enterprise” supporting, we care about citizens but gosh we’re concerned about the fact that the BC Liberals look like they are on life-support, kind of group.

CC4BC is headed by Christy Clark advisor Jim Shephard, a former Canfor exec. The rest of the group – staff, funders, spinners – is under wraps.

Except for a phone number. If you want to donate to the group just call 604-678-8162 it says on the “how you can help” page of CC4BC’s website.

The number doesn’t belong to some non-partisan concerned citizens group. It belongs to Wazuku Consulting, a lobbyist super-group made up of partners Mike Watson (BC Liberal appointee), Brad Zubyk (BC Liberal lobbyist, Christy Clark leadership campaigner) and Stephen Kukucha (Christy Clark by-election campaign).

Now that’s not unexpected. CC4BC is a pretty thinly disguised Christy Clark front group. But it’s what may come that is interesting.

This is not the first front group that Zubyk’s been involved in. In 2009 Zubyck was one of the consultants behind Phil Hochstein’s multi-million dollar attack campaign, belying his 2007 testimony against union campaigns in which he said under oath “the idea that money equals voice is dangerous to democracy.”

Hochstein’s vote smart campaign spent hundreds of thousands on 3rd party attack ads and websites all aimed at the NDP.

Now it’s another election, so it’s time for another round of murky attack sites like CC4BC, supported by shadowy lobbyists like Wazuku, where money and connections equal lots and lots of voice.

Excellent! Looking forward to seeing the general population reminded of Adrian Dix's numerous criminal acts.

"numerous criminal acts" :dyinglaughing: That of course would be mostly based on endlessly regurgitated spin, lies and hyperbole, and exactly what we should historically expect from these types of groups and their mindless lapdogs leading up to the election as they work to deflect attention from their own malfeasance and outright fraud over the past 12 years. Somehow I doubt the electorate is going to be easily sucked in by such garbage any more since it's even less interesting than watching Laurel and Hardy and I dream of Jeanie re-runs on MeTV.

Here George, give this a read-thru. You've got nothing else to do, since you're a retired teacher.

John Slater gives the ChristyLiberal MILF Party a message:

John Slater ‏@JohnSlaterMLA
Eff. Today, I will be stepping down as a member of the BC Liberal Caucus and will sit as an Independent for the rest of the session #bcpoli


Some background:

LIBERAL PARTY’S TREATMENT OF MLA SLATER IS SHADY AND SHABBY
Posted on 09 January 2013 by admin
Politics is often seen by the public as a sleazy business, and the events surrounding the nomination of a B.C. Liberal candidate in Boundary-Similkameen do nothing to dispel that perception.

Sucks hugely to be a failure and miss out on that gold-plated pension. Might as well take the bitter road.

At least he wasn't forced out because he has no vagina, as would happen under NDP party rules. :dyinglaughing:

Might have something to do with the fact that the Libs are in trouble and they didn't think he was a strong enough candidate to win the riding in the coming election - and they might be right. He didn't win the last one by much.

However, that was pretty sleezy and underhanded on the part of the Liberals.

Seems to me the CC Liberals are working hard to enlist and elect significantly more female candidates as well, just going about it in a more devious and obscure way than the NDP did. But what the hell, perhaps if we can get to the point of a female dominated government for BC rather than our historically male dominated one, we might be pleasantly surprised at the change such a situation might bring. Whether we could afford it or not is of course an entirely separate matter ;-)

If people could be sued for nonsense you would be a lawyer's dream come true George.

SHIRLEY BOND
MARY POLAK
and..

CHRISTY CLARK!

I GUARANTEE you will not be 'pleasantly surprised'!

Naturally, the first person to be negative about there being more women in poltics is the bitter old hag herself. What a surprise.
