The bcLIBERALS claim to be the Free-Enterprise party. By their actions, or should I say inaction, they have proven that to be a lie


It's Tuesday (April 10th) --- three days now since Kinder Morgan declared they needed an answer on if they are going to be able to go ahead, without further delay, on getting the Trans Mountain pipeline underway. 

They've drawn a line in the sand, and that line is dated May 31st!

So what's happened in the meantime, since then?

Well from everything I have read, heard and seen, BC NDP Premier John Horgan appears to be completely indifferent to the chaos he's creating across the resource sector.

Meantime, the bcLIBERALS, with leader Andrew Wilkinson, have finally come out of their comma to realize we have problem.

So you might be wondering, "Where does that place the BC Conservative Party?"

Only the BC Conservatives have been consistent on responsible resource development; development to support ALL British Columbians ... development which will create thousands of jobs ... development which will create tax revenue to build schools, hospitals, and replace aging infrastructure.

"The prosperity of many BC communities and the provincial economy as a whole is dependent upon the responsible utilization of our abundant natural resources"

I know where my political support lies ... with the ONLY party to be consistent in its demand for resource development that is responsible, and sustainable.

The bcLIBERALS claim to be the Free-Enterprise party. By their actions, or should I say inaction, they have proven that to be a lie.

  1. It has never been about the environment. The end result of millions of dollars spent by Americans to land lock our oil is they save $43,000,000 each and every day because we are unable to get it to tide water. How many projects for public good could be done with the tax on that revenue? If they stuff proportional voting up our ass no one will ever form a majority government. Two losers will trump a winner and the junior partner with only three seats wants to run the ship.

“First Past The Post” works close to home by focusing on electoral districts first … “Proportional Representation” tries to fit a size 10 foot into a size 7 shoe by bastardizing electoral districts

MEL ROTHENBERGER: There are so many things wrong with the referendum on proportional representation, it would take as long to cover it all as it would to explain the convoluted and foggy alternatives on the ballot.

So let’s just talk about the hocus pocus of proportional representation (also known as prop rep, pro rep or PR) math. This one giant flaw should be enough to make us run, not walk, away from prop rep.

Throughout the months leading up to this vote, prop rep boosters have relied heavily on a simplistic abracadabra formula to convince us their system makes sense.

Their favourite line is “40 per cent of the votes should equal 40 per cent of the seats,” or variations thereof.

With the current First Past the Post, they say, “39 per cent of the votes = 54 per cent of the seats = 100 per cent of the power” but with PR “39 per cent of the vote = 39 per cent of the seats = Compromise, cooperation, collaboration.” This is labeled “Proportional Representation Math.”

I once called it “voodoo…

What, Judy, is the response, to the urgency and compassion show by British Columbians for WHAT IS NEEDED? What are the ‘action words?’

Today is International Overdose Awareness Day.  Did you know such a day existed?
I wasn’t until early this morning.My God, it’s pathetic we even need to have a day like this to mark – and celebrate is obviously a word that would never be used for an occasion like this!
So, for an occasion such as this, Judy Darcy, Minister of Mental Health and Addictions, trotted out ‘words’, because, at least in my opinion, they are easy to say.
Today marks International Overdose Awareness Day, and we honour and remember those we have lost to this terrible crisis. Last year, we lost 1,450 people here in B.C., and by the end of this day three or four more British Columbians will die from a drug overdose as a result of a poisoned and unpredictable illegal drug supply.”

All talk … but little action!
As I mentioned yesterday, on July 18th, the BC Centre On Substance Use, released all of the ‘words’ necessary for our BC NDP government to ‘actually’ begin the process to slow down this terrible crisis, and hel…
