New Democrats could have much tougher time criticizing Enbridge Inc.'s controversial Northern Gateway pipeline, salmon farmers and independent power producers after those interests showed up at a recent party fundraiser. As an example, look at what happened when opposition MLAs raised questions about donations made to the Liberals by companies-connected to the province's bingo halls and community gaming centres. House Leader Mike de Jong batted them aside by pointing out, "What do the Prince George Casino Supply Co., the Great Canadian Casino Co., the Great Canadian Corp., Edgewater Casino, Grand Casino and Great Canadian Casino Co. all have in common? They've all made donations to the New Democratic Party. That's what they have in common."
