Oh Carole...Where ARE you???
One has to laugh. On March 29th, as we careened toward an election, I wrote a column about the missing-in-action Carole James. She had been elected NDP leader and then had disappeared completely off the political stage. Her quick to respond handlers asserted she was "traveling the province and building the party". Ok. Fine. I get that.
Then we had an election - she came out of the woodwork and, frankly, ran a pretty good effort for a neophyte politician. It was choppy at times and there was lots of internal NDP bickering about the strategy, but at the end of the day, she captured a whack more seats than anyone had expected.
So, one has to ask the question again: Where is Carole James? I've heard from Adrian Dix, the one-time fake memo boy who is scrambling for credibility by converting the tragic death of a baby in care into political mileage. I've heard from a couple of other NDP MLAs (though, interestingly enough, NOT David Chudnovsky about the potential BC Teacher's Fed job action).
But Carole, sweet Carole, has been nowhere to be found. I do hope someone has told her she can't keep hiding after the Legislature resumes in the fall...
