The Gods must be smiling down on Crispy Clark. Her right of centre rivals, the B.C. Conservatives, have imploded. After the Cons' leader, Geriatric John Cummins, was backed by a 71% vote, the party's sole MLA, former Lib John van Dongen got into a car and sailed off into the sunset. JvD says he'll sit as an Independent but won't return to the B.C. Libs u so long as Clark is premier.
If the B.C. Cons can't attract viable candidates to run an effective campaign next year, the Libs will be in a much better position to fight the NDP challenge.
Only in B.C.
