Is Clark dressed for success?

Logos of all those LNG sponsors and private jet owners will be most prominent; then the First Nations-type shawl will add a feminine touch.

Beady-eyed readers of The NEWS will have surely noticed that our premier has recently appeared both inside and outside the B.C. Legislature wearing a very eye-catching and colourful type of shawl.

Never having been noted for my own great sartorial splendour, I tend to notice very prominent and political people, regardless of gender, when they appear on camera wearing something out of the ordinary. As these shawls bear very prominent First Nations motifs — one was an eagle, another a salmon, and there may have been more that I’ve missed — I have an uncanny feeling that they just may be worn to curry favour with some potential voters in the next election.

Remembering that the countless photo-opportunities of the premier in a hard-hat during her 2013 campaign worked wonders with the voters, it would be a fair assumption that the same millinery attire will be reintroduced during the next election campaign. Chances are, it will be worn in conjunction with a NASCAR-type coverall upon which are emblazoned all the logos of companies and organizations with which our premier has had contacts and contracts.

Of course, logos of all those LNG sponsors and private jet owners will be most prominent; then the aforementioned First Nations-type shawl will add the necessary beguiling feminine touch.

I can hardly wait for the writ to be dropped about a year from now, to see how my imagination meshes with reality.
