Liberal Patronage Alive and Well

I recently read about Wayne Crewe being appointed Chairman of the Slemon Park Board of



Directors. What I find rather amusing, I could not find a photo of Wayne for this blog on the net?? Yet in the years leading up to the 2000 provincial elections Wayne was one of the most photographed people around. Almost every day you could find a photo of Wayne in the newspaper. I remarked about this at the time stating he must be planing a run in politics. Indeed for the 2000 provincial election he was acclaimed as the Liberal leader. He failed badly and became the first Liberal leader not to win his own seat. I’m only reminding you of this because of his recent (plum) patronage appointment as Chairman of the Slemon Park Board. Wayne has floated around in a variety of odd jobs. He worked in administration at the hospital, he ran and failed as a politician, he has sold new and used cars. However, I’m at a loss as to why he has been appointed to this new position. I don’t believe he was a pilot,or retired RCAF, he was not a particularly successful businessman, and clearly not political material. What he is of course, is a good Liberal follower, and for that he has been rewarded by King Wade. The Liberal government recently purchased Slemon Park Corp for the handsome sum of 2,39 million dollars.  I could have sworn I read somewhere that we were struggling with a large deficit, and our poor King, was forced  to increase taxes yet again.  Remember the King, he was the guy who said he was going to do things differently. Do you see anything different?? cos I sure don’t. Just more scandalous patronage and waste, we face the inevitability, like all the recent Liberal schemes Slemon Park will fail too. Just another boondoggle like Egaming and PNP’s. When the time comes please vote for election reform, before its too late.

God Bless and keep reading.
