So asks the headline of a full one-page ad (page A8) in today's Sun.

The answer to this questionable question is supported by the signatures of about a hundred CEO's of local companies, and other luminaries.

The punchline is Kevin Falcon.

Mr. Falcon is apparently the best person to "manage" BC.

And doesn't that little verb, therein, tell us so much about the leadership deficit we face these days.

Mr. Falcon is smart and energetic.

He is also a bull in a china shop, a peson who sees all of a life as a profit-and-loss sheet, and, like all the other candidates in this wishy-washiest candidate contest, yet to tell us what he wants or sees for this province.

He has no vision.

And his supporters don't expect any.

All they ask for is a good manager.

Yawn, goodnight.

If you thought Gordon Campbell or Glen Clark or any other Premier you can think of was a tad autocratic, whoa...stand back, kids, and prepare for the Iron Fist of KF. My way or the Triple P Highway Kev.

Are all these Vancouver CEO's as simple minded and ignorant of history as the Tea Party folks south of the border who think Obama is a (yech) "socialist?"
