    This week, mergers and acquisitions in business are standard procedure. But in politics, it’s either a sign of desperation or a winning formula for electoral success. What will it be in BCPoli? With a mash up of BC United and BC Conservatives along with a dash of Mayor Brad West, the concoction is either madness or brilliance. Or just a bunch of BS.
    Meanwhile, in Vancouver, Mayor Ken Sim makes a major flub in his leadership style and the “invisible” opposition that can be found on X are going to town on him. Election 2026 has begun.

    This week, Go Canucks Go! There is nothing to unspin there. But over at ICBC, we all get $110 back, but why can’t the good drivers be rewarded more and the bad drivers not rewarded at all. In Vancouver, politics are getting in the way of an upgraded seawall but hey, it involves Park Board, so it’s always about politics. And trouble in Delta where Mayor George Harvie has lost the trust of his Council. This puts Delta on the one-to-watch list for local politicos and journalists.

    This week, it’s May and while Star Wars and the 4th might be with you, this planet seems to be spinning a bit out of control. From protests and arrests at a New York university campus to flip flopping on not-so-tough-on-crime polices right here in BC, it makes you wonder who’s in charge anymore?
    Well we got you covered here at Unspun where Jody and George take a closer look at why politicians might be afraid to act on one issue but move blindly forward on another — and it’s usually connected to how this will hurt them at the polls. Yup — Spin!

    This week, news channels across North America appear to be all Trump all the time. But how does that fit into spin? Well, for Trump it’s likely for … the win.
    Meanwhile, in BC, the politics of parks, police and pragmatism keep Jody and George on point and on the edge. Seriously — when politics usurps common sense and dollars and cents, you know you are in trouble.

    This week, homes for everyone! Well, in theory that is what the federal government is proposing but is realistic and what’s the alternative.
    In BC drug decriminalization and the safe supply system are creating a whack-a-mole situation for police and local residents and debate is heating up politically in Victoria of their efficacy.
    But you know … It’s an election year, everyone. And finally, app-gate in Ottawa, are the ArriveCan hearings more political theatre or a real issue that needs to be resolved.

    This week, with one of the driest winters on record, BC is faced with a drought and fires this summer, are we prepared? Maybe the BC NDP government will spin their way out of that like they have when it comes to CleanBC-Gate, illicit drug dealers in hospitals, and Surrey Policing. Jody and George bet that Premier Eby wishes he had called the election a year ago.
