Contempt Cronyism

Well, well. That didn't take very long, did it?

Alykhan Velshi's climb up the ranks of the Contempt Party continues.

Alison at Creekside first took note of Velshi here.

Now CBC reports:
Former Jason Kenney staffer Alykhan Velshi is returning to Parliament Hill -- this time as director of planning for the Prime Minister's Office [...].

Velshi was most recently executive director of, an organization set up to promote writer Ezra Levant's take on Canada's oilsands.
Funny how the ReformaTory claim that Stephen Harper Conservatives would govern differently never happened.

Plus ça change, more there are Con jobs feeding at the public trough.

So, who's running the Ethical Oil scam? Poor Dame Ezra all on his own?

(Sorry, garbled spelling on something)

Velshi will moonlight for him. After all, he's not a lobbyist. There's no conflict of interest going from government aide to oil apologist to PM's office.

ow. I hurt myself.

Ever notice how turds rise to the top in the toilet bowl?

I look at it this way. All the bitching about youth not engaging in politics because if they did, they'd save the world for a progressive vision? Velshi is 27 and has been a high profile presence in federal politics for how long?

Progressives of all ages need to engage.
