Doing political analysis, Rafe Mair swings a hammer. Paul Willcocks, on the other hand, prefers a scalpel.

Campbell told the legislature that B.C. officials did not even discuss the HST with their federal counterparts until well after the election. Hansen said the same thing in answer to a specific NDP question. There was absolutely no contact of any kind between federal and B.C. officials until late May, he said.
But there was. The documents show discussions and e-mail exchanges between the B.C. officials long before the campaign began.
