Events In BC’s Other Parties

October 21, 2007

British Columbia. A province of many political parties. Something or other has to be up with them? Something that could be material for a quick post…

The BC Greens elected their new leader today, Jane Sterk. It sounds like she has some political experience as an Esquimalt councillor. But I can’t say that it bodes well for the Green Party of BC’s future electoral changes that the only place reporting on the Green leadership race results is, as of time of writing… the Green Party.

The Democratic Reform BC Party, on the other hand, had nobody care when they elected their new leader Graeme Rodger, exactly one year and one day ago. With their last party press release in March, it seems that this party, right now, is a dead as a doornail.

For something completely different, the Sex Party is going to court to take legal action against Canada Post, as Canada Post refused to deliver their campaign flyer during an election because the flyer had some (supposedly) erotic art and mentioned a few private parts. I think it would be interesting to find out how exactly the courts would rule on this case.

    Haha, I experienced the same thing when I was trying to figure out who won the BC Greens leadership race. Although to be fair, it got a few hits later on: http://news.google.ca/news?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&hs=UA0&ie=ISO-8859-1&resnum=4&ct=title&ncl=1122476564

    Although, I don’t think Maurine Karagianis will be losing any sleep about the prospect of facing off against Jane Sterk, the race in Esquimalt-Metchosin should also be pretty interesting in 2009 if Sterk chooses to run again there. My money is on Karagianis, although Sterk should be able to have a pretty strong showing with some municipal experience and a higher profile as leader.
