What? The BC NDP Wants Sather To Be Re-Elected?

January 8, 2009

According to the BC NDP, Micheal Sather will seek re-election for MLA for Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows. But is this something the BC NDP really wants?

For those of you that forgot, Sather was the MLA that was temporarily removed from BC NDP Caucus because he failed to recognize that when the government deals on good faith with First Nations, some sacrifices must be made and some control (in this instance, over land use issues) must be given up.

After that issue, Sather decided that he didn’t want to be an MLA anymore and ran for Mayor of Maple Ridge – and lost.

Now, with that escape route gone, Sather has decided to run for the nomination for Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows.

Personally, I hope that Sather loses the nomination and a team player will be the NDP candidate.

    Was Corky Evans not a team player when he abstained from the vote?

    No, he wasn’t being much of a team player at all.

    Hey wait a minute! Are you saying that NDPers are not entitled to opinions other than those held by caucus or that Caucus members are not entitled to vote what their constituencies want? Doesn’t sound too democratic to me?

    When one is in a caucus, one is on a team, agreeing to support each other because they agree with each other a majority of the time. When MLAs work together in a caucus rather than separately, more policies are adopted.
