The Hook: Political news, freshly caught

Vaughn Palmer enters the blogosphere

Vaughn Palmer, longtime provincial-politics commentator for the Vancouver Sun, has begun a blog in anticipation of the May 12 election.

Running on the Sun's website, View from the Ledge already has several posts, including one on his being "linked" to the BC Rail affair.

Palmer also discusses the roles being played by the Greens and Conservatives in the impending election, and NDP leader Carole James's response to charges that one of her candidates once made an anti-semitic comment.

Crawford Kilian is a contributing editor of The Tyee.
