“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” ~~ John G. Diefenbaker

And this comment, from MLA Todd Stone, pretty much sums things up .... “It’s complete amateur hour in NDP land folks”


Many, like me, woke up this morning and wondered .... WHAT THE HELL WENT ON last night at the BC Legislature?

From everything I’ve seen and read this morning, it sounds like Scott Fraser (NDP Minister of Indigenous Affairs and Reconciliation), made a huge mistake by inviting in a bunch of misguided, uneducated, and ill-informed individuals to talk(?) about a situation which is ...



.... over one thousand, one hundred, kilometres away -- near the community of Houston ...



I doubt if many (if any) of those individuals -- who created havoc in the legislature -- have even been to the area, or even have any family members living there.



Last night, they showed their true colours as hooligans, as these first hand accounts show; they are only a few of many!



Ellis Ross ~~ MLA for the riding of Skeena

Last night at the Legislature was wild. MLAs and ministers can bring guests into the legislature, but to bring in protesters, and put legislature security people and legislature staff, in a bad situation is unacceptable. The people’s legislature is closed to the people but protesters are allowed in?



Mike Bernier ~~ MLA for the riding of Peace River South

Well that was the craziest night I have had at the Legislature. Wow!!!  All I can say is what is wrong with people?  You have no idea what you are talking about or protesting, and have zero regard for society and the rule of law. I am embarrassed for BC and Canada as this is not who we are I thought. Horgan and Trudeau need to man up and do something about this!!  Sorry Valerie you got stuck in that mess!!



These self-styled, modern day, Chev Guevara guerilla revolutionaries live in relative comfort (when not protesting on the steps of, or storming in, the legislature) ... rather than on reserve where life can be hard, work is scarce, and those amenities often times are not found.



Laurie Throness ~~ MLA for the riding of Chilliwack - Kent

Tonight, the NDP Minister for Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation let protesters into the building to talk and they wouldn't leave. Police came to the building to arrest some people, but they can't get them out because hundreds of people are blocking the doors. Our Legislature is in complete lockdown and we may not be able to have Parliament tomorrow.



Note the Tim Horton's and Starbucks coffees, the plastic rope, gasoline jerry cans,
plastic
totes, comfortable metal frame chairs, 2 by 4's and plywood
perhaps cut from old-growth forests, and of course the large plastic tarp
Todd Stone ~~ MLA for the riding of Kamloops South Thompson

Last night, against the advice of security professionals, NDP Minister Scott Fraser brought radical agitators INTO the Legislature, who then refused to leave. What foolish and reckless judgement by Fraser.



Illegal protests, blockades, propane tanks and open fires on the steps of B.C.’s Legislature for weeks now - it all needs to end, but it probably won’t anytime soon because while Premier John Horgan talks tough, his government continues to play footsie with radical agitators.



This comment, from MLA Todd Stone, pretty much sums things up .... “It’s complete amateur hour in NDP land folks”



WHEN, pray tell, is the provincial government of Premier John Horgan going to state – UNEQUIVOCALLY – that enough is enough?



Contempt for the law only breeds more contempt, and these hooligans will simply continue to flaunt and openly challenge authority – for them it’s a game they are playing, under the guise of standing in solidarity with the Wet’suwet’en.



WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP!



Oh ... and one final thing ...



These self-styled, modern day, Chev Guevara guerilla revolutionaries live in relative comfort (when not protesting on the steps of, or storming in, the legislature) enjoying all of the amenities of the cities and communities they have chosen to live in – including housing, jobs and education (if they want them), and of course their favorite caffeine beverage drink in a wax lined paper cup with plastic lid --- rather than on reserve where life can be hard, work is scarce, and those amenities often times are not found.


They are clueless about reality, and their obstructionist ways must end.

THE SIDEWINDER -- Just quit your constant damned whining and do something positive about it

  Living in a democracy is a wonderful thing, but it comes with responsibilities such as voting and being involved. When the dust settled on Saturdays (October 24 th ) BC election, less than two thirds of the eligible voters * took the time to vote - but the loudest bitchers will probably be among the more than one third of voters who sat on their asses and complained about how all politicians are crooks, etc. How many of you constant whiners have ever done anything close to becoming involved; or do you just like sniveling to hear your own voice? Are you one the arseholes who likes to take advantage of everything our democracy has to offer, without ever contributing anything? And I don't want to listen to your crap about paying taxes, blah, blah, blah. There's more to making democracy work than simply voting and then sitting back and let others carry the ball for you. Too many people seem unwilling to get involved - and follow-up - to make sure elected po

AARON GUNN -- He is, at his core, an ideologue, meaning the facts of any particular issue don’t actually matter

Ben Isitt - City Councillor and Regional Director Victoria City Council and its resident-genius Ben Isitt is back with another dumb idea. Introducing a motion to ban the horse-drawn carriages that have coloured Victoria’s downtown streets for decades, calling them “an outdated mode of transportation”. Are you serious?   No one is actually commuting by horse and carriage. They are here for tourists and residents alike to interact with world-class animals and discover the magic and history of our provincial capital. It’s part of what gives Victoria its charm. And the truth is these horses are treated better than anywhere else in the world. They probably live better lives than many British Columbians.   And talk to anyone who works with these horses and they’ll all tell you the exact same thing: this is what the horses love to do. This is what they were bred for and trained for. This is what gives their lives purpose and meaning. But maybe we shouldn’t be su

THE SIDEWINDER: MacDUFF'S NAIVE CALL

I have just struggled through Cheryl Ashlie's column ( MacDuff’s Call: A political novice with a sizeable ego ), in the Sept. 22 edition of The Maple Ridge News. To say the least, Ashlie's comments are naive and show just how totally out of touch she has become with political reality. Ashlie lauds the decision of Darryl Plecas to accept John Horgan's invitation to become the Speaker of the House, a move described by almost everyone else as self-serving and a betrayal of the trust of the constituents who voted for him. Ashlie claims Plecas' turncoat move will help provide good governance but in making this claim, she fails to explain how he will achieve this lofty goal.
