CBC election commentator a poor choice

Former Liberal chief of staff has offered hypocritical rants of party so far

The level of hypocrisy in B.C. politics has surely reached a new high (or low), with CBC television hiring former premier Gordon Campbell’s one-time chief of staff, Martyn Brown, as one of its expert commentators for the May 14 provincial election.

I expect him to repeat, ad nauseum, his rant that Christy Clark’s government is suffering from a serious lack of transparency.

To put it in Shakespearean terms, this would be the equivalent of Iago complaining that there has been far too much scheming and skulduggery going on in Othello’s household.
