New blogger from the left goes on the attack

September 28th, 2010 · 15 Comments

I noted one of Ian Reid’s previous articles in Vancouver Observer a month or so ago, but it now looks as though Mr. Reid is going to be providing regular blog fodder from the left, copying the [email protected] TM style — FOIs left and right and accusations of impropriety.

The latest is a front-“page” story about contracts for website work under the Sam Sullivan administration.

For those not in the know:

Ian Reid, former chief of staff to NDP leader Carole James

Vancouver Observer, online newspaper run by Linda Solomon, former reporter at the Tennessean and sister of Joel Solomon, who has been a fan and financial supporter of Gregor Robertson and, latterly, Vision Vancouver for some years.

Also, to round this story out, is the response from Mike Klassen, the subject of Ian’s FOI’s and aspersions of wrong-doing. (Though Mike also gets a crack at defending himself in the original post — a new tactic on the blog scene.)
