“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

“Premier John Horgan needs to act quickly and decisively to grow jobs and the economy for the benefit of all British Columbians, not just the chosen groups”, says BC’s Conservative leader Trevor Bolin

Today, according to Conservatives in BC ... British Columbians were witness to the devastating unveiling of the provincial governments $12.5 billion dollar deficit, followed by no plan to get us back to work or to get the Provinces financials in the black.

Speaking from Fort St. John, following the economic update from BC Finance Minister Carole James, the provinces Conservative leader, Trevor Bolin, stated:

COVID-19 has been disastrous on families across this Province, it has shuttered family businesses in cities from the north to the south, and communities that were once flourishing are now floundering with no assistance from the BC NDP government of Premier John Horgan”.

We as British Columbians deserve more. We do not and can not base our livelihoods on more promises of government funding in the fall. I can not look at my school age children and grow more concerned by the day that this Government is spending us into years beyond their university school days”.

A release from the Conservative Party of British Columbia stated that Conservatives understand the economy, and the importance -- and relevance -- of resource and retail jobs for this province.

According to Bolin, “Premier John Horgan needs to act quickly, and decisively, to grow jobs and the economy for the benefit of all British Columbians -- not just the chosen groups”.

BC’s unemployment is soaring, towns and regions that once relied on tourism are trying to survive and having to choose what bills they pay, and what bills they don’t”, the Conservative leader continued.

BC needs a plan, and British Columbian’s deserve a government with a plan to get our residents back to work – a plan that’s Made In BC”, Bolin concluded.

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


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.
