Zubyk: "I provided advice to a number of business, environmental and public relations third party firms..."

Political consultant Brad Zubyk, who was a member of the provincial New Democrats' campaign team in 2005, confirmed today the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association was among his clients during the recent election. In an interview with Public Eye, Mr. Zubyk stated, "I provided advice to a number of business, environmental and public relations third party firms on how to effectively spend the (campaign advertising) limit, which was $150,000. There were business groups - including the ICBA. But there was also locals of the (Canadian Federation of Students) and environmental."

Zubyk is another example of predatory capitalism... selling his insider knowledge to the higher bidder. Some would call him a traitor.

Zubyk is the Patrick Moore of partisan politics. The ICBA online campaign to discredit the friends and families of prominent NDP members was the most disgusting piece of personal character assassination I've ever seen in Canadian politics (Conservative smear ads notwithstanding).

It only goes to show that crass opportunism knows no political boundaries. Parasitic posers like Zubyk deserve to driven out of town on a rail. Then maybe we can get back to real issues-oriented political debate in this province.

Krispy - I missed this online campaign. Do you have any more details? I couldn't locate anything on their website.
