Clark and Boessenkool: A match made in Harperland
How to best describe Ken Boessenkool, Christy Clark's new chief of staff? "Former Suncor lobbyist", former "Enbridge lobbyist" and former Stephen Harper staffer and strategist. All describe the BC premier's new leading team member.
Boessenkool was a former lobbyist and advisor to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and he will replace Clark’s first chief of staff, Mike McDonald. McDonald was demoted down to "principal secretary."
The Boessenkool-Clark alliance is a match made in Harperland. It is like a royal medieval wedding joining a British king with a French bride. It can lubricate relations between BC and Alberta, B.C.'s Liberal premier and Canada's Conservative prime minister, as well as keep BC's pathway open for smooth relationships with Suncor, Enbridge and even Taser International, all of whom Boessenkool has represented as a lobbyist, according to the CBC.
