Gordon Campbell. Partick Kinsella. David McLean.
There are more, of course, but that's enough to draw the basic outline.
Campbell is the Premier of the Province of British Columbia. He will, in all likelihood still be the Premier on the morning of May 13th.
He's the Premier who swore in a previous election campaign that BC Rail was not for sale and never would be.
Never turned out to be about 6 months.
Kinsella is a little bit of everything.
Political wizard, running successful campaigns for all manner of would-bes, including...wait for it..Gordon Campbell.
Kinsella also has worked as a communications consultant ("But I am not a lobbyist!") for BC Rail and CN Rail. Hm...
McLean is the CN Chairman and major fundraiser for...you know...Gordon Campbell.
Now, there's also Martyn Brown to consider, but that would make our neat triangle a box or a rhomboid or a moibus strip or something curving ever deeper in on itself until it finds its own entrails as delicious desert.
Brown is the Premier's chief of staff, who after he stopped having daily social intercourse with Kinsella during an election campaign, was having regular conversations with Kinsella about ...you guessed it...CN Rail.
Question: CAN YOU GET ANY COSIER THAN THIS AND STILL BE ON THE GOOD SIDE OF JAIL BARS?
Which raises the other question: Why will this administration, which should be spending the next several months testifying in court but will not, win yet another election?
Because, as morally bankrupt as this group of shady wheeler-dealers is, they will continue to be perceived - and regrettably with some justification - as more "capable" than Carole James and the NDP.
Regrettably, because we urgently need a new fresh gang of cutthroats at the helm to plunder and pillage us.
With some justification, because as much as I am historically an NDP voter, James and her party have yet to show the necessary royal jelly.
So, like thousands of you, I am stuck at another voting booth between a rock and a hard place.
Of course, I have already made my decision.
I will vote NDP.
The current Triangle should move to Bermuda.
