‘Gordo-Five-O’ not funny: Liberals

B.C. Grits take offence to union’s anti-Gordon Campbell ads


B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell’s party is not laughing about a union’s recent ads. In the Canadian Office & Professional Employees Union Local 378 ads, Campbell is shown drinking in a Hawaiian shirt (a reference to his 2003 impaired driving arrest in Hawaii), reading an email about a raid on the B.C. legislature (hinting at what became a corruption investigation), and slurring his words while he discusses a carbon tax (a dig at his apparent conversion to environmentalism). A spokesman for the Grits says the ‘Gordo-Five-O’ ads, “say more about the NDP and their backers than it does the B.C. Liberals.”
