But his party’s candidate selection committee denied him the opportunity citing his favorable comments, once, for the opponent provincial Conservative party at a time when the Conservative party was speaking out against cuts made to the film industry there by the government.
Paul belongs to a left-of-center party, and he had made many favorable comments about his party’s elected representatives also.
But the coup de grace came when the selection committee brought up that Paul had an interest in UFOs and the paranormal, making films about those topics.
They told Paul they were concerned (or appalled) that this particular hobby might embarrass the party.
(Paul may decide to run as an independent, and I hope he does. He’d bring a semblance of sanity to his pocket of Canada.)
Anyway, my point in telling you this is that if you feign an interest in UFOs or ghosts (or anything paranormally related) and plan to run for political office, woe unto you.
You’ll become a political pariah, perhaps, not one as outcast as a Donald Trump perhaps, but a person thought to be on the iffy side of life.
Even a person as sensible as Paul Kimball.
