Thank you,Carol James and the N.D.P., for always maintaining your focus
on this crisis of public confidence in a shameful Liberal government
leader who is:
1. Not accountable to the electorate: legislature hardly sits
2. is obviously corrupt: eg. BC Rail scandal, H.S.T.
3. is inept in recognizing the necessity of addressing child poverty,and in
particular, not closing down public schools
4. misleading the poor when it comes to the $200 million for homelessness housing, and not raising the minimum wage
5. Obviously and totally afraid to face the N.D.P. in the legislature
because you are on the side of truth for all BCers, and he thinks he can
fool us yet again.Not.
We need true social democracy again,viable support from a strong,
ethical leader and party which inspires us to grow, and provides the
average BCer with the tools to face this horrible recession.
Bring this guy down. No more lies from the liberals. We are fed up
I just finished watching the Global TV speech, and all I saw was a person on his last legs grasping at straws by trying to convince those who are middle or upper class employed that they will be, will be, better off with the H.S.T in the future, that there will ...be tax cuts next year, and that the Strong Start program will fix our elementary school system. Don`t forget about most of your friends who are legitimately griping about the loss of customers in their shops and restaurants, or about how the H.S.T. erodes their buying power now, or about the fact that 11 or more schools are set to close in East Vancouver. Read over what you see above you, and then decide if this guy is a bullshitter or not. Thanks David Beatty for stirring me up again.
P.S. By the way, if you haven`t already noticed, his address seemed to be aimed at the privileged, the shrinking middle class and anyone with short term mainstream media memory loss, who surely comprise a minority in B.C.. Let`s face it, 70 % of B.C.ers probably still earn o less than $20,000 a year now. Are we gonna have to buy this soup again ?
I guess so, with Christy Clark planning to call an election if the libs lose the H.S.T referendum: here's my reply on Stacey Robinsmyth's I'm a fan of www.theleftcoast.ca
hatsawrap is right. This is supposed to be a referendum, not a call for an election if Christy and the libs lose. As far as I’m concerned, though, it is really an assessment of her leadership skills to date, and Dix has her on that one, so it looks like the H.S.T. is doomed, due to her unethical manoeverings to get around a loss, like the wording, playing up Canada Post strike, and pledging $ to sundry middle class community groups while ignoring the poor on the D.T.E.S. : ie. 12 womens groups denied funding; though $200 million signed pledge by Coleman + feds for social housing, nothing has been done to date, no Pantages buyout for 100% social housing,not 20%; no C.C.A.P. agreement on partner or advisor within L.A.P. process, controlled by Harcourt and Wong’s B.C.S. and corporate city council,And the rest we all know: the $6 million legal fees for Basi+ Virk,memo on B.C. rail deal to Christy and relative; BC Ferries sell off, BCrail, privatization and dereg.; she didn’t finish her degrees at S.F.U. not the Sorbonne. All the way gone ! Crunchy ???? You and the libs are finally on your way out, because you can’t lose the H.S.T. battle, and then go on to win our hearts in an election filled with more empty promises ,except for the $30 billion shipbuilding contract which we’re sure to receive hands down, given our geography and relationship with China, and that will mean less dependence on the debt failing U.S.A/Obama/ Republican congress. I can go on, but we all know her fate. The B.C. public aren’t that stupid.
