While the provincial New Democrats have been courting business community, one Liberal cabinet minister has been playing a round with British Columbia's labour movement. Last Thursday, Kevin Falcon attended and even apparently sponsored a hole at the Teamsters Joint Council No. 36 Charity Golf Tournament, which took place at the Mayfair Lakes Golf and Country Club. That's somewhat surprising because, according to Elections British Columbia, the teamsters contributed $14,155 to the New Democrats and not a dime to the Liberals. So why was the health minister there and could it have anything to do with his leadership aspirations? Mr. Falcon, who is on holidays, was unavailable for comment.
