BTC: If they wanted her once, they don't now

As to Julie Couillard’s claim of once being approached to run for the Conservatives, an e-mail was sent to the party earlier today seeking comment. The response from spokesman Ryan Sparrow: “To my knowledge she was not approached.”

This seemed a slight equivocation. So a follow-up e-mail was dispatched.“Are party officials investigating her claim? Or have they investigated her claim?”

The response to this: “She was not approached.”

So there is a clear denial. Ms. Couillard or her representatives are welcome to come forward at this point with evidence to support her claim.
