Drinking Spirits

An alert reader sent me the following press release, sent out my the BC Young Liberals during the election campaign. I guess it beats a Buzz Hargrove endorsement but there's certainly something a little surreal about the entire press release:



VOTE FOR THE SPIRIT BEAR. VOTE LIBERAL.

In Canadian politics, the Liberal Party of Canada is the friend of the Spirit Bear.

The Spirit Bear Youth Coalition - a Vancouver-based not-for-profit - today endorsed the Liberal Party of Canada and encouraged more than 2.5 million supporters in its Canadian network to vote for the Spirit Bear by voting Liberal.

As a part of their Made-in-BC Agenda, the Liberal Party unveiled a pledge to secure
the future of the Spirit Bear by working with the First Nations and the BC government to protect the bear's last intact ecosystem, an area that includes
the Green Watershed. The policy, for which the pledge is based on, was voted by
Liberal members as the party's top priority for British Columbia and marked the
first time any political party acknowledged the need to save the Green
Watershed, an area critical to the bear's survival, while protecting tradition
uses.

(it goes on... one key tidbit: "The Spirit Bear Youth Coalition....has a policy to endorse political parties that have a realistic chance of forming government").

  • Future leaders perhaps?

    What's most interesting about this endorsement is the loop back to Industry Canada.

    I'm not claiming something stinks about this endorsement. I just find it interesting that's all.

    Decide for yourself.

  • The Liberal Party of Canada in British Columbia endorsed a resolution to get the federal government involved to the fullest extent possible within its jurisdiction to protect the habitat of the Kermode "Spirit" Bear as its number one priority at its November convention.

  • Thought particles: I've decided for myself. And that's not much of a case for impropriety at all.

    Braeden Caley: Seriously? Good lord.
