“The truth is Canada is a cloud-cuckoo-land, an insufferably rich country governed by idiots, its self-made problems offering comic relief to the ills of the real world out there, where famine and racial strife and vandals in office are the unhappy rule.”

There can be NO DOUBT from anyone that this BC Liberal government has gone way past governments role in informing British Columbians

What is the governments role in informing British Columbians about important information?Well according to an official government website, under the heading of Government Communications, they state:

What else happened?  Well Christy Clark went on the campaign trail saying whatever she had to say to get the votes of British Columbians ... and many believed what she had to say.


Here's a direct quote, from BC Premier Christy Clark, from the 2013 election:
