"What did Premier Campbell have to promise former CBC chair Carole Taylor in order to entice her to run provincially?"
Two potential candidates who had been working diligently to win the Liberal nomination in Vancouver-Langara were pushed out of the way in order to assure that Taylor's run for the nomination would be uncontested. The seat is one of the safest Liberal seats in the province; Val Anderson has held the seat since 1991. With 67% he won by a margin of almost 9,000 votes in 2001, up from 60% in 1996.
The other question out there, What did the Gordon Campbell promise the two contenders to pack it in giving the soft landing in Victoria to Carole Taylor?
Me I am always concerned when I think Campbell has made a promise. Abour the only promises he keeps are those for his friends and those promises seem to cost us in more ways than just dollars.
