Premier Gordon Campbell has been hitting some sour notes recently. And he hit another one during a post-throne speech reception for supporters at The Union Club of British Columbia. While speaking to attendees, he took a shot at former premier Bill Vander Zalm, making reference to the Fantasy Gardens fiasco. Given Mr. Vander Zalm's campaign against the Campbell administration's harmonized sales tax, that shot was perhaps understandable. But it may have also been ill-advised, given that many provincial Liberals are also former Socreds.
