With Barry Penner’s announcement of his imminent departure from public life (which is looking less and less like a ruse all the time), I came to a sad realization. Of the four big players that were in place when I started this humble little site, only one remains.

First, El Gordo left the big job over some minor misunderstanding and got shipped off to some other country by mistake (British Columbia… Britain… eh, close enough).

Then Chuck Strahl decided to step away from the Federal game for some reason and handed the keys over to Mini-Chuck (Don’t dent the riding, boy! And bring it back with a full tank of gas!).

And now Barry Penner leaves behind the life of glamour and wonder that is being a provincial MLA and cabinet minister in order to spend more time with his family (a bold move that no politician has ever dared consider before).

Now only one still stands…

So tune in tomorrow as “Barry Penner is AWESOME” dies and “John Les… ugh. I guess.” rises from the ashes!

Last week, Chuck Strahl, Barry Penner’s Federal BFF and one of Chilliwack’s Three Musketeers (well, Two Musketeers Plus John Les Who Is Also There, I Guess) announced that he would not be running for re-election. Now, being devoted to Barry Penner as I am, I don’t really know too much about Chuck. However, I can say this: he certainly stood next to Barry Penner every so often.

To recognise his outstanding career and his great achievements in the field of Standing In the Frame When Barry Penner Has His Picture Taken, I proudly offer the Chuck Strahl Retrospective Experience, Featuring Barry Penner. Just click here to re-live his accomplishments (for the full effect, be sure to open this in the background.)

Uh… nice shirt, there, John…

White hardhats are for elected officials only! Everyone else will have to stick with orange.  Should have thought of that before you didn’t get elected, Britco guy.

C’mon El Gordo, I know you’re the boss, but that doesn’t mean you get to show up to this dressy-suitjackety event wearing the same thing you wear to the golf course like a shlub.  Heck, even John Les put on a tie.

Of course, once again Barry Penner  hits the home run.
