More Trouble for the NPA: Paid Advertiser Will Cherry-Pick Which of Their Candidates to Endorse
You really have to hand it to City Caucus. Self-revealed as the launching pad for Mike Klassen’s political career (read: full-on, public disgrace) they used the media for three years to put a totally unqualified man within reach of a council spot.
This is after pointing out the lack of qualifications of the current lot.
During the lead up to the November elections and old shameless ploy was fair game for Daniel Fontaine and his sidekick Mike Klassen: Showing up to Surrey events just to get pictures with Dianne Watts. Supporting Christy Clark while taking Falcon advertising and then towing a soft line on both. Collecting on PR work for the BC Liberals while covering them.
And now the pinnacle of shamelessness: City Caucus is being paid by the NPA campaign to promote their brand in this election. not a huge stretch, since Fontaine and Klassen are all but kissing the hem of Suzanne Anton’s robes–a deference a kin to hero-worship. Embarrassing? Hardly. Not when you are without any shame or conscience.
So while collecting to promote the NPA BRAND, the NPA TEAM, they’ve now announced on (what else?!) TWITter that City Caucus WILL NOT be endorsing all NPA candidates.
Behold, the brazen stupidity and dishonesty…
@Boldtcom Lesli Boldt
I bet this tweet’ll be a bit upsetting for @SuzanneAnton: MT @CityCaucus: @MayorGregor is a slam dunk…
in reply to
@Boldtcom they might also be surprised that CityCaucus.com likely won’t be endorsing a full slate of NPA candidates!

Gee…I can’t imagine why…
Could it have anything to do with the fact that Klassen is not polling as favorably as they claim and that strategic votes elsewhere would better his chances.
If you’re wondering what the first comment by mindless Vision Vancouver hand-maiden Lesli Boldt was about, she was referring to yet another tweet by the ‘Dynamic Duo of Duncity’. Fontaine and Klassen remarked that Gregor Robertson was a “slam dunk” for Mayor.
And Klassen is running on the same slate as Suzanne Anton????????
These guys are the two biggest fools in Vancouver civic politics to come along in a long, long time.
But there are some serious questions which arise from this:
The first to Suzanne Anton: How does it feel to have the guy you favour before any of your other candidates not at least jump in and straighten out his partner who admits to the world that you’re a sure loser in November? Aren’t you paying these clowns to provide support?
And the second to every single last NPA candidate currently working their buns off pounding the pavement, knocking on doors and raising money: How does it feel to know that while you guys are having a helluva time raising money and garnering support, that the Klassen show overshadows all of you? How does it feel to know this kind of outright betrayal? While his blog is collecting to advertise YOUR team, they announce that they won’t be endorsing all of you–just the ones that are bootlicking Mike’s loafers.
Manipulative, low-life scumbags at City Caucus? You be the judge.
