Federal Conservative bacbencher Garth Turner has found another cause celebre in British Columbia. According to our operatives, Mr. Turner - who loudly criticized Vancouver-Kingsway MP David Emerson's defection to the Tories - has agreed to be the star attraction at a fundraiser for Fair Voting BC. That's the group campaigning for the use of a single-transferable vote system in the next provincial election. A date for that event hasn't yet been set. In January, former Reform leader Preston Manning attented a similar fundraiser for the organization.
