Marji Basso and John Slater–Please Call Me ASAP…I Won’t Wait Past Today
I’ve never had to do this before, because I’ve never dealt with this kind of story.
In my possession is very disturbing information–exceedingly disturbing information, that, if published, will hand the provincial riding of Boundary Similkameen to Linda Larson of the BC Liberals. While that’s not really my concern, what’s of importance here, is that Basso and Slater call me before I do the story. The details are provocative to say the least, but I’ve confirmed the story with multiple sources.
I will give Marji Basso, the NDP candidate, and John Slater, the current MLA and now Independent, until 3pm today–Thursday– to contact me. I’ve left you both my office and cell phone numbers.
You both need to pick up that phone and get a hold of me.
In the absence of that, I will happily accept a call from their respective campaigns.
I hate stories like these, but the details of what I have are demonstrable proof that neither Basso nor Slater have the principled judgement to be in public life.
I’ll wait until 3pm, and if I don’t hear from Slater and Basso, I will consider my options by Monday and either publish on that day or instead, just furnish the information to the Basso and Slater campaigns and let them decide if either of these people should be (re)entering public life, at the provincial level.
At that point, Basso and Slater can answer to their immediates, the public, and their respective families.
Thereafter, I will not feel one iota of guilt if the results are life-altering for either of them. As I said, I HATE stories like these, but I’m trying to be nice about it and both Slater and Basso are being obstreperous and refusing to return calls.
In all likelihood because they know exactly why I’m calling
I will be accepting absolutely NO COMMENTS on this post.

Media can contact me by email or cell, as they have both.
