From the BC Conservatives: "We're back, we're united, and we're ready.”



This coming Sunday (November 19th), BC Conservatives in the Kamloops Thompson Nicola region, will be holding a first meeting, in preparation to reorganize Riding Associations in the area.



Long-time Kamloops resident and conservative campaigner, Alan Forseth, stated,

"Having returned from our party's recent AGM in Langley, I am delighted to have taken on the role as Regional Director for our area.  I look forward to being a part of the growing momentum for conservatives across the province."

Leader Scott Anderson of Vernon
The gathering of members and guests, which gets underway at 2:30pm at the meeting room of the Accent Inn, will feature guest speaker, and current Interim Party leader Scott Anderson.



Mr. Anderson, who is also a Vernon City Councillor commented,  “I am so excited about the energy and enthusiasm I’ve heard from members across the province, and the Kamloops area is no exception.” 



He went on to say, "In all the years I’ve been with this party I’ve never seen it as united and ready as it is now. We're back, we're united, and we're ready.” 



As former BC Liberal leader Christy Clark showed all British Columbians recently, with her flip flop on the Throne Speech, TRUE common sense fiscal conservative credentials are important at a time when politicians seem willing to change their philosophy, at a moment's notice, in order to hold on to power.



The British Columbia Conservative Party is ready to work toward a British Columbia, for all British Columbians.

NOTHING that has come out of the AGM for the so-called workers party, shows they are once again going to be the champions of the working class



This weekend, the BC NDP held their annual AGM in Victoria.  While reading up on it, I diverged for a few moments to look back on comments, and posts, from earlier this year.  That little side trip led me to come across these words from my friend, and BC political colleague, Ben Besler.  

Read what he had to say, and then tell me whether you agree, or don't, that NOTHING really has changed


" ... they (the BC NDP) have become a party on cue to simply state “no” when the other says “yes”.

They at one time were the labour party. A party of the working class. A party that stood for better employment opportunities and fair wages. Now they are running amok, appeasing the lunacy that the environmental apparatchiks have become.

Killing jobs, stopping progress. They have partnered in solidarity with folks that do everything in their power to bring ruin on the job seeker and the middle class.

They stand in the way of progress for the iron worker and his blue collar brothers and sisters who - I might add - are the real progressives.

They (blue collar workers) are the heart of this province.

They are the real builders of this province, and they have found no solidarity from the party that simply pretends to have their back.

The NDP have become a weather-vane of double speak. Untrustworthy. All talk, no action.

Are the free-enterprise working-class up against the wall in British Columbia? What do you think?"



I do agree with Ben that blue collar workers -- the ever shrinking middle class -- are up against the wall.

Sawmill jobs by the thousands have been lost ...millwrights that could be working on pipelines are idled ... bridge-workers are idled ... thousands of workers in the Peace River are (and have been idled).  Few if any new mines are being developed.  Entire rural and northern communities are on life support.
The BC NDP -- and their Green Party allies ARE NOT friends of the middle class, blue collar, workers.  They once were -- BUT NO MORE.
And the BC Liberals are doing little more than proving themselves to be allies with Justin Trudeau's federal Liberals.  Nearly all candidates for the leadership of the party come from the capitol "L" side of the party

Don't tell me the sky's the limit when there are footprints on the moon



EARLY YESTERDAY, I the following information out by email to several individuals -- letting them know we (the BC Conservatives) had every intention of being a viable alternative in the next provincial election in BC. I also posted a much briefer edit on Social media (Facebook and Twitter).  Here is the text of the email which was sent:

Greetings friends ...

I would like to let you know, if you are unaware, that just a few short months ago I rejoined and became a member of the BC Conservative Party.  Additionally, I attended a very successful AGM which was held a few weeks back in Langley. 

I believe in small 'c' conservative ideals, and I believe that the well-being of our province will not happen with either our current GreeNDP government ... or with the Liberals, who are INDEED Capitol "L" Liberals in both name, and in governing style!

This email is to advise you that initial prep work is underway to restart the Kamloops North Thompson, and Kamloops South Thompson, BC Conservation Riding Associations -- as well as Fraser Nicola. This region has always been fertile ground for true conservatives, and I look forward to having your support.

I have requested that the party attempt to have Interim Leader Scott Anderson (long-time Board / Executive Member, and Vernon City Councillor) join us in the coming weeks to discuss the future ahead for OUR party, and our region.  Stay tuned for information on meeting dates coming in the near future!
