Open and Transparent Nomination processes? Not in BC Liberal Surrey #bcpoli #bcelection2017

There is lots of talk among the general population about how they want the election process to be open, transparent and accountable.

People want there politicians to vote their ( constituents ) wishes and open the process to them so that they can see it at work.

Seems to have gone on deaf ears here in BC Liberal Surrey and the nomination process.

If rumors are true the recent nomination ( acclimation) of Stephanie Cadieux was an appointment, Marvin Hunt is being moved to another riding to run under an acclimation and tonight or soon newcomer and Sukh Dhaliwal crony, Puneet Sanhar, will be introduced/acclaimed in another riding.

The latter event apparently because Sukh was to be acclaimed but changed his mind in case he lost.

Given that these are fairly safe BC Liberal seats I am sure there would have been great nomination clashes should the process have been open.

Whatever happened to attracting good people to run in a nomination process and winning on their own merits?

This could be one of several factors in play by the time the election rolls around and they could conceivably lose these seats.

Stay tuned…
