Vancouver Sun has a history: The Sun's incorporation paper in 1912 had stated the newspaper shall not "editorially, nor in its news columns or otherwise, adversely criticize, condemn, oppose in spirit or letter such policy or policies, principle, principles ... or leaders of the said Liberal party - and such shall be considered a violation of the constitution of this company."

.

An interesting history of Vancouver Sun ... is it 78? or 104 years old?

And would you be surprised to discover that allegiance to the Liberal Party is built right into their DNA?:

Excerpt:

The Sun had long given up being the editorial arm of the provincial Liberal party. Said Straight, in 1953: "We operate this way: if the CCF (now the NDP) has a newsworthy case, it gets treated on its merits as a story. There are no sacred cows on the newsdesk."

The Liberal party had once been the most sacred of cows. The Sun's incorporation paper in 1912 had stated the newspaper shall not "editorially, nor in its news columns or otherwise, adversely criticize, condemn, oppose in spirit or letter such policy or policies, principle, principles ... or leaders of the said Liberal party - and such shall be considered a violation of the constitution of this company."

Comments:
Not related to this story, but just in case you missed this, Bob Mackie uncovered another link between David McLean of CN/BC Rail infamy and Christy Clark (also of same infamy).

Worth a read.

Jersey Girl also the Charter Chick?


Jobs and families. Premier Christy Clark's two favourite words. One thing is certain, she has given the powerful McLean family the job of flying her entourage.

I learned that Clark flew on eight trips during her first six months in office on Blackcomb Aviation, which is co-owned by the McLean Group. See my story here. The invoices and itineraries are below.
