Does political patronage exist?

Earlier, we reported on Kevin Falcon record of giving key board appointments his friend and ally Chris Gardner. First, it was the B.C. Ferry Authority and now it's the Fraser Health Authority. So what makes Mr. Gardner so indispensable? Isn't this little more than political patronage? Those are the questions we had for the minister as he made his way into this today's government caucus meeting.


This is the same minister who recently proposed that BC should get into the "medical tourism" business since we do not utilize our operating rooms to capacity (one might wonder why that is).
