Today, we reported an email is being circulated encouraging provincial Liberal supporters and federal Conservatives to attend the British Columbia Conservative annual general meeting and oppose plans to merge that party with Unity. But, in a message left on Public Eye's answering machine, vacationing party executive director Kelly Reichert said, "I just want to make it clear that under no circumstances has anybody from the party - any officials - been involved in any type of activity of emailing or phoning or doing any type of encouraging for anyone to take part in any activity of the B.C. Conservative Party or the B.C. Unity Party. And we would not condone that. And we are definitely opposed to any of that kind of activity."
