Bell: Brian Jean story NOT denied, conservatives angry

5 17 202

Let’s make this real easy for everybody.

Especially for those of you who apparently don’t know the difference between a real denial and a phony-baloney non-denial denial.

To the untrained eye, they kind of look the same but they are very different.

The story is simple.

Joe Magliocca, a Calgary city councillor, gets a phone call from former Wildrose leader Brian Jean Monday night.

During the phone call, Magliocca says Jean tells him two big things.

First, Jean will lead the Freedom Conservatives, a party with Derek Fildebrandt currently at the helm.

And Jean wants Magliocca to run in the provincial election under the banner of a Jean-led Freedom Conservative party.

A phone call and these two main points. That’s the story.

Reading a catalogue of comments Thursday, I must have missed something because some folks thought Jean somehow denied Magliocca’s account.

Did Jean deny he told Magliocca he would become leader of the Freedom Conservatives?

No, he did not.

Did Jean deny he asked Magliocca to run for a Freedom Conservative party led by him?

No, he did not.

Did Jean deny he made a phone call to Magliocca that Monday........
