More Tory Turmoil, this time in B.C.! From The Lifesite:
BURNABY, BC, March 19, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A revolt is brewing in the Conservative riding of Burnaby-New Westminster where the Party candidate in the last election - a strong social conservative - has been denied the opportunity to seek the nomination again despite massive local support. Last week directors from the local constituency association held a forum discussing their concern at the Conservative Party's decision to disqualify Marc Dalton, the Conservative Candidate of Record for 2006.
Of course, his social conservatism is not the only issue with Mr. Dalton. In May 2005 Dalton trashed the B.C. Teacher's federation for its "pro-NDP" stance in a story on BCTV, all without telling the network that he was Tory candidate for the riding.
He also, in March of 2007, snuck a number of his supporters onto the Burnaby-New Westminster Conservative riding association's BOD, presumably thinking that stealth was his only path to the re-nomination. One of these plants, Senna Ip, is quoted in the Lifesite article bitching about the lack of democracy in CPoC.
Oh the irony.
