Sun Stenographer Jonathan Fowlie provides Campbell absent when Bill Bennett given the axe:
“Premier Gordon Campbell was absent from the cabinet room this morning when Bill Bennett was asked to step down as energy minister, The Vancouver Sun has learned.”
Was Campbell in the room when they cut off Bennett’s telephone, computer access and government credit cards? Those things occurred before the Cabinet Meeting started. Who made the decision to fire Bennett and when was it made?
Fowlie tells the government story but does not bother with the whole truth. His is a story intended to mislead.
