VICTORIA – In a bid to soften their corporate reputation in time for election day, the BC Liberals have rolled out a Groupon offer, so voters can glad-hand with Christy Clark for a discount on her usual rate.
“50% off, wowee!” said everyday British Columbian, Emily Smith. “At that price, my friends and I can’t afford not to exert undue influence over the political process.”
The ad, which can be seen in the ‘Local’ section of the Groupon app, features a stock photo of a female executive and the headline, ‘Meet British Columbia premier,
$20,000 now only $10,400!’
But unfortunately for Clark’s polling numbers, public response to the offer has been lacklustre.
“Christy and her friends arrived late, then yelled at my girlfriend and I for being NDP plants when we asked about campaign finance reform,” read one one-star review. “Worst date ever.’
At press time, Pacific Northwest LNG had already purchased all the remaining Groupons.
