Commentary
The BC Liberals have managed to take another crisis of confidence in government and use it to their advantage. Premier Gordon Campbell has been publicly shown to be dishonest, and woefully short of anything akin to integrity as both a leader and as a person. Yet, this latest raid, by the RCMP and Victoria Police, includng drug and serious crime law enforcement has ironically helped the Premier by deflecting some of a political debacle onto others in his Cabinet.
