CKNW 980AM in Vancouver Tuesday Morning

I'll be appearing on CKNW AM-980 in Vancouver Tuesday morning at 10AM PST, talking with reporter Michael Smyth on the Bill Good Show about the Bilderberg Group.

British Columbia's Premier, Gordon Campbell, was a delegate at this year's Bilderberg conference in Spain. Mr. Campbell is essentially the equivalent of a state governor in the United States, and a dustup in the press has expressed the usual gamut of fear, outrage and controversy over anything that is connected to the Bilderbergers. In Campbell's case, they are zeroing in on his $6,400 travel expense, but there is also the usual paranoia over why the premier of a seemingly small potatoes Canadian province would get invited to hobnob with this impressive super-secret group of New World Order masters. Sounds like some folks in Vancouver have an inferiority complex. If I were Campbell or a resident of BC, I'd be miffed that there is an attitude that they are just too insignificant to be hanging with the big noises in the Bilderbergers.

Campbell was among the 130 invited folks to the June gathering in Sitges, Spain, along with Bill Gates, Henry Kissinger, former U.S. treasury secretary Robert Rubin, and Richard Holbrooke, U.S. special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan.

I spoke with Michael Smith on Monday and he quotes me in his article this morning. See Airfare is on record, but premier's discussion isn't.

Um, Chris, BC is hardly small potatoes, economically, culturally, and naturally.

I vacation there often and have a lot o friends there. They just held the Olympics don't ya know!

I didn't mean to say I thought BC is small potatoes. I'm saying the articles seem to have this odd, incredulous attitude that Campbell and Vancouver are just too insignificant to go to the Bilderberg gathering.
