Though the federal Liberals and Gordo's gang in Victoria seem to share little but a name with the same letters in the same order, this affair has shone some light on the ties between the two varieties of Libs on the backroom organizer level. Recently BC Mary sent the House an article from the North Shore News published on January 14, 2004. This piece was written by Leo Knight, an ex-cop with Conservative leanings.
