The Sun’s previous civic affairs reporter Jeff Lee (still missing your columns, Jeff) weighed in with a comment on this story: pre-campaigning attack ads under scrutiny.  Turns out he agrees (forcefully) with Ken Ohrn’s take on Hector Bremner’s dis-ingenuousness.

It is specious in the extreme for politicians and their election teams to say they don’t know who has undertaken expensive advertising on their behalf. For Bremner to say he did not know means he’s getting bad advice. Transparency is critical if you expect people to place trust in you and vote for you.
Having covered Vancouver politics for better than two decades (and now retired from it) I am always amazed at how people wanting the keys to City Hall make such dumb mistakes.
