Are the BC NDP full of crap? Yeah, sort of, they are. They've gone bananas about the fact that Elections BC is asking the governing party about fundraising stuff.

While the effect of Election BC's ad on next week's election remains debatable, one thing's clear. Its message echoes NDP and/or Green Party rhetoric, and therefore, counters the candidacy of many BC Liberal and/or Conservative candidates, particularly in ridings outside Vancouver. Anyone interested in democracy should be concerned about that.
