How to make friends and influence voters

Following the Liberal's Surrey-Panorama Ridge by-election defeat, Transportation Minister Kevin Falcon blamed that loss on a lack of support for the government among Indo-Canadians. Not surprisingly, rumour has it there are plans to boost support by handing out provincial appointments to a number of prominent community members. Names on that list are said to include Peterson Stark Scott lawyer Palbinder Shergill, who currently sits on the Fraser Health Authority's board of directors. But when we questioned Ms. Shergill about whether the Liberals had asked her to accept an additional appointment she said "Unfortunately, I have no comment." Sukh Badh, the owner of Radio Punjab, is also rumoured to be up for an appointment. But, in an interview yesterday, Mr. Badh denied he would be accepting any government largess.
