BC Liberal/ BC Rail Crime Spree Exposed

Well well well, the plot thickens.....Let me start by saying that the BC Liberals, Mike De Jong and Shirley Bond are bold-faced liars, actually, let me rephrase, all BC Liberals are liars!

As you know, there was a unsourced email sent to the media last month claiming the BC Government employee indemnity policy had been changed prior to Basi n Virks guilty plea, this change is thus...

Employees of the BC Government who are charged with crimes have their legal fees paid for, unless they`re found guilty, and in the case of Basi n Virk they plead guilty...According to this unsourced email sent from BC`s justice ministry to BC`s mainstream media just prior to Basi n Virks guilty plea this policy was changed, the policy, the new policy according to this email allowed ministry staff to forgive legal fees of even those who are guilty, or plead guilty, in other words there is no indemnity policy, Government can pick and choose who has to pay, oh how convenient....Story over?..Not,  for there is a few things that these BC Liberals thieves seemed to have forgot...My photographic memory states this...

In October 2010  a surprise guilty plea was entered by Basi n Virk which suddenly stopped a highly political charged BC Rail corruption trial.......

So how come Mike De Jong on CKNW just days after the surpising and shocking guilty plea appeared on CKNW and made these claims....

Mike De Jong, on CKNW in  October 2010 ......

Mike De Jong.." David Loukedelis and Graham Whitmarsh alone made the decision to forgive Basi n Virk`s legal fees because the likelihood of collecting these monies were very remote"..Snip

Mike De Jong went on to say that....I`m paraphrasing here....

Legal services department recommended to the ministry of justice deputies Whitmarsh and Loukedalis that there was little likelihood that ant Basi n Virk monies and assets could be garnished and recommended forgiveness of these legal fees,.....Mike De Jong went on to say that these deputy ministers of the ministry of the attorney General made the decision completely independent, no cabinet minister knew anything...


_____________________________________


Well Mike De Jong....Are you also saying that David Loukadelis and Graham Whitmarsh also changed the Government employee indemnity policy on their own, that these deputies asked no member of Cabinet, or the premier if they could change the indemnity policy to forgive guilty employees legal obligations?...Can deputies in the attorney General`s Ministry just scratch out Government policy and change it to whatever they think is reasonable, is that how new law and policy is made in BC?


Well well well, let me ask this question, who authorized these deputy ministers to change Government policy, what member of cabinet or what premier gave theese deputies ministers the nod to do so...And can deputy ministers change any policy willy nilly without asking, for example, could these deputies reverse that policy tomorrow without asking a single member of Government,?...Did these deputy ministers advise cabinet of these changes after the fact or before?....Because you lying sacks of garbage is where the rubber hits the road...

In Octobver 2010 when Mike De Jong was fumbling his way through his CKNW interview, why did Mike De Jong claim these deputies ministers made the decision on their own of legal fee forgiveness because there was little likelihood of collecting these monies....Why Mike De Jong did you not tell the listening public that Basi n Virk had ne legal responsibility to repay these legal fees because SOMEONE CHANGED the POLICY BEFORE the GUILTY PLEA?...

Why Mike De Jong did you fabricate your face off on CKNW, why did you not divulge at that time(October 2010) to CKNW`s listening public that the indemnity policy had been changed, why did you not divulge when the indemnity policy was changed and the really big question..Who authorized changing a multi decades long government indemnity policy?.....Why did it take 19 months to inform the public that the indemnity policy was changed prior to Basi n Virks guilty plea...

Game...Set...Match....Bye bye BC Liberals, this is indeed the FINAL nail in your coffin, fabricating lies at will, changing Government policy through surrogates, having deputy ministers illegally change policy on the fly, failing to inform either the public or Government employees of these changes!!!!

Enjoy your return to public life you lying theiving BC Liberals...Keep the fuck out of British Columbia Gordon Campbell, your decades long crime spree is over, someone is about to be jailed following an NDP public inquiry into the theft of BC Rail..

Canada`s Rebirth, The Rejection of Harperism

There really isn`t anything too hopeful or awe inspiring to write about, here in British Columbia we have a rat-pack Government running scared,and what`s even scarier than Kevin Krueger`s breath is what Ken Bosenkool is telling BC`s puppet Government to do..

Destroy the economy on your way out, gift your friends, reward your corporate backers and set British Columbia up for financial ruin, yes indeed, with the next BC election already over the only thing Christy Clark can do is sabotage the economy for future Governments..

Remember  Justin Trudeau giving the Federal con a beatdown, oh to dream, oh how I would love to see John Horgan stuff his fist up Krueger`s empty cranium, John Horgan is a maverick, a skilled artisan with more gusto then 10 Kevin Kreugers combined.

John Horgan has too much class to stoop to Kevin Kreuger`s level, actually, the lowly omoeba one-celled organism has more class then Kevin Kreuger.

You are a gutless coward Kreuger, have you noticed a pattern, Ken Bosenkool directed Harry Bloy, Kevin Kreger and Rich Coleman to slag the NDP, these weren`t accidental slips of tongues, these were orchestrated sleaze, orchestrated by Harper Conservative Gordon Campbell and Ken Bosenkool, too bad these attacks are falling on deaf ears, have any of you watched question period of late, there isn`t one BC Liberal who has aged well, Ida Chong looks like she`s ready to cry, Shirley Bond`s face needs to be turned upside down, George Abbot has angry clown mouth syndrome, Rich the tick Coleman(nuff said about him)...Even Christy Clark is suffering from botox face freeze, have you noticed her frozen  droopy left side of her face, that my friends is known as botox freeze...

Run Richard Branson run, Christy Clark is known in popular circles as two-face, you never know what you might wake up to in the morning..

Anyway, the bottom line is this, we have very angry BC Liberals, angry that their political careers are over, angry that they allowed Gordon and Michael Campbell to ruin their future legacy, to ruin their sleep, angry that for the rest of their days on earth they will have to watch their back and when the day comes when they`re in a seniors home, will that healthcare worker exact revenge, even in death these Harper clone Liberals will find no solace for the journey continues south to a burning sea of hell-fire, there will be no quarter given and no forgiveness granted, charity starts at home, so does vengeance..

British Columbia, a refugee province dying a slow death, Harperland is in a direct assault campaign against us, against the left coast, a shallow man filled with anger and revenge is his only weapon, a temporary weapon mind you...His HST rejected, his pipeline rejected, his BC Liberal/Conservative Government rejected, from the king of the heap to outhouse door after a 1 term majority, Harper is seething, a boiling meltdown, his revenge is to take boaters lives, to order BC fuel sellers to jack us up at the pump and the more Harper pushes British Columbia the more he looses...Yes indeed, Thomas Mulcair, the next Prime minister of Canada and you know what, it might never had happened without Harper showing his true corporate colours, the darkside, the belly of the beast his number be 666 but his name be Stephen Treason Harper...

This post is one of hope, yea I know what hope, what effing hope do we have, well...


The CP rail strike isn`t about wages, shareholders want employee pensions gutted and new hire employees to receive none, Aveos betrayal, Air Canada, a Federal Government who cares only about shareholder profit and fuck the worker, now a self-funded EIC(UIC) worker safety net is under assault too, healthcare, Canada pension all under assault, let`s lay out all the cards, Federal Liberals and Federal Conservatives have stolen $100 billion dollars from a self-supporting UIC fund and now laid off workers get the shaft...

Here are some UIC facts that existed before Harper`s assault....It now takes 3 months before you receive your first UIC cheque...If you are a worker laid off after 30 years with one company, you never collected UIC before, the company pays you 30 weeks severance pay, for every week of severance pay you receive from company X you will have to wait an additional week before receiving your first UIC cheque...In other words..You worked a lifetime, never collected until now you will have to wait 40 weeks before you receive even $1 dollar from UIC....That`s right, exhaust all your severance before you get dollar $1....Now Harper wants people to work for less money, to take any job...First off, low-paying employers do not like to hire those who made double or triple elsewhere, they know these workers will leave soon...Secondly, if you made $80 k per year most workers would take a $60 or $70 k job, but let`s be clear, those jobs are rare and dying, now people are working for $14 per hour..$16 per hour, to expect these workers to commute AND TRAVEL TO WORK FOR $10 DOLLARS PER HOUR or be cut off IS ANOTHER DIRECT ASSAULT...Thefts of $billions from UIC fund make these changes a crime..

Background (from CBC story)
Labour unions appeared before the Supreme Court of Canada last Spring to argue the federal government has been improperly spending billions of surplus dollars in the unemployment insurance fund.
The court reserved judgment Tuesday afternoon and didn't set a date for a ruling.
Brought by the Quebec-based labour union Confédération des syndicats nationaux (CSN), the unions' argument is that the Employment Act fund shouldn't go into general revenue and pay for things such as debt reduction. Doing so turns it into an indirect tax and is unconstitutional, they argue.
"The reality is the government owes $55 billion to the insurance system and they need to pay it back," Barbara Byers, vice-president of the Canadian Labour Congress, told CBC News before the hearing began.
Intervening in the case are the Canadian Labour Congress as well as the attorneys general of Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Ontario and Quebec.
They argue that the government has misused EI funds dating back to 1996, when the act was amended to make it more difficult to qualify for unemployment benefits. Since then, the employment insurance account surplus has ballooned to $54 billion.
EI premiums are set once a year by Ottawa based on employment expectations. Some employers complain the government has been underestimating, resulting in an ever-increasing surplus that then goes into general revenues.
"The surplus has been used to pay down debt, It's been used to give tax cuts to large corporations and oil companies, it's been used for all sorts of other purposes, but not for unemployment insurance," said Byers.
"That's money that comes from workers and employers for unemployment insurance. It's not an extra tax, it's not to be spent on other things."
The Quebec Court of Appeal ruled against the unions after finding the EI premiums collected were within federal taxation powers. 


Canada's top court ruled on Thursday that the federal government acted constitutionally when it spent an employment insurance surplus on balancing the books.
The ruling found that it does fall within the federal government's purview to use the EI funds as it wishes, whether to pay down the debt or use on social programs relating to jobless workers.
But the Quebec-based union organizations that brought the case to the Supreme Court of Canada did score a minor victory. In Thursday's ruling, the top court found the government acted unlawfully in the way it collected EI premiums over three years.
In 2002, 2003 and 2005, a new rate-setting criteria was used for setting EI premiums that the court found to be unlawful, CBC's Rosemary Barton reported from Ottawa.
During those years, Parliament authorized the Governor General in Council to be responsible for setting the premium rate.
The Supreme Court did not make any recommendations on how to address the problem, and gave the federal government a year to respond to the decision. 


The Toronto Star's version:
 
EI financing ruled illegal by top court
TheStar.com - Canada - EI financing ruled illegal by top court



December 11, 2008


THE CANADIAN PRESS



OTTAWA–The Supreme Court of Canada says the federal government broke the law in financing the employment insurance system by transforming premiums paid by workers and employers into an unconstitutional tax.
In a 7-0 judgment, the court ruled the former Liberal governments of Jean Chrétien and Paul Martin collected EI contributions illegally in 2002, 2003 and 2005.
In those years, EI rates were set directly by cabinet without proper authorization from Parliament, violating the ancient constitutional principle of no taxation without representation.
However, the court rejected claims by organized labour that the Liberals deliberately ran up massive surpluses in the EI fund, then diverted the money to balance the federal budget and fund other initiatives.
The Confederation des Syndicats Nationaux, one of Quebec's leading labour organizations, had demanded that $54 billion in allegedly diverted premiums be returned to the EI system and used to fund future benefits to jobless workers.
The confederation also contended that federal jurisdiction is strictly limited to providing such benefits, and that any training, placement or other social services should be left to the provinces. The court rejected that claim, as well.
The dispute has its roots in the deficit-fighting efforts of Martin as finance minister under Chrétien. Critics have long maintained the strategy amounted to balancing the federal books on the backs of the unemployed.
The Liberals brought in legislation in 1996 that tightened eligibility rules for EI benefits but simultaneously opened the door to new training, education, placement and other programs.
Critics say the government then went on to set the premiums charged to workers and employers at higher rates than were necessary to fund the reduced benefits and new programs.
The result was a ballooning surplus in the EI fund – a revenue windfall critics said could be used first to balance the budget and later to support other Liberal initiatives that had no connection to EI.
Opposition MPs, labour unions, business groups and Auditor General Sheila Fraser all complained repeatedly about the new regime but to no avail.
The current Conservative government promised earlier this year to set up an independent Crown corporation to run EI on a break-even basis. But the Tories didn't offer to restore the $54 billion diverted in the past.

There you have it, a self-supporting UIC fund has been robbed and ripped off by both Federal Liberals and Federal Cons, any further thefts and reductions will be known as Stephen Harper`s China Stndrome...


The China Syndrome, the race to the bottom, the experiment failed and China is caput, done, finished, the commodity decadal boom has turned to bust....Harper and Campbell were too late, Christy clucking Clark is too late, there will be no LNG bonanza, there will be no tar oil savior, can`t you see, oil is $90 dollars per barrel and falling, oil companies are in shock, they want their summer bonus dollars and it isn`t there, there is world glut, herein BC oil companies at the behest of Stephen Harper are charging BCers at the pump the price of $150 dollar per barrel oil....

OK...Are you happy yet, this was supposed to be a post of hope, well here it goes, change is coming, Kinder Morgan has scaled back thei tripling of the pipeline, there is a reason, oil orders are being curtailed, oil is falling back to $60 dollars per barrel and staying there, that means the tar sands die, they lose money, America is cranking up coal burning, drilling, fracking and it doesn`t matter who is in power down south...

The super-cycle commodity boom of the last 10 years is over, Europe is broke, Asia is not only flat-lining they`re retrenching, The US of A is broke, the people are broke, Canadians are drowning in debt, after a 10 year supercycle commodity boom Canada is broke, Alberta is running massive debts, BC is broke, the game is over....

Stephen Harper was a decade late, so was Gordon and Michael Campbell, their ideology is now a proven failure, a intrnet driven fact filled electorate with the last of the kool-aid drinkers dying in droves, Dutch Disease, poison, corporate corruption, cronyism run amok, banking profits setting records while the future is stolen in plain view, the day of reckoning is here....A decade of zero gains on the TSX exchange, zero gains on the dow, the S&P..Chinese markets, Japanese markets, American markets, a decadal commodity boom and almost every market is lower today than a decade ago, the people have awoken to the scam..

Youtube, bloggers, writers, heros, facts facts and more facts, the truth is coming out so fast, stories are disected and bisected, sliced and diced by brilliant minds and intuitive thinkers, before the ink is dry on the latest criminal Government liefest press release these brilliant minds have dredged the truth and told the Straight Goods...

Sun to Set on Commodities Super-Cycle: Morgan Stanley Strategist

"The massive commodities boom of the past decade is at its tail end given the slowdown in one of the largest consumers, China,"

 China's growth is downshifting to a lower plain, its very commodity-intensive phase of growth is coming to an end. This to me marks a big decade of increase in commodity prices coming to an end,”

" we're headed now for two decades down as far as commodity prices are concerned. This is the sunset of the big commodities super-cycle,” he said.

The 200-year history of commodity prices shows a repeated trend of two decades of price declines, followed by one decade of price gains, according to Sharma.
The current up-cycle in commodities led by Chinese demand together with stupendous growth in other emerging economies is now reaching its end, with raw material markets seen under pressure in recent months.
Copper prices, which are seen as a gauge for the world’s economic health due to its extensive use in the manufacturing industry, have fallen 13 percent over the last three months. Brent crude [LCOCV1  106.36    -0.32  (-0.3%)   ] and gold [XAU=  1550.01    -4.53  (-0.29%)   ] prices have fallen 14 and 9 percent, respectively, over the same period.  
Earlier this month, the world’s largest miner, BHP Billiton [BHP  64.02    2.21  (+3.58%)   ], announced that it has pulled back on plans to spend $80 billion on expansion projects, warning that it expects commodity markets to cool further.


  Australia, Brazil, Russia - I think all these economies will have to cope with lower commodity prices over the coming decade compared to the big windfall they enjoyed over the past decade,” Sharma said.

“What these countries forgot is that the big boom over the past decade was very much because of a global tide lifting all boats; it was not about their own economic policies,” he added.

Conservative Disease, Vanishing Backbones and Forked Tongues



Ah, the ability to stare one in the eyes and boldly lie your face off, Stephen Harper`s team is full of these spineless losers..

Last week when it was revealed that Harper dictated shuttering the busiest coast guard station in Canada Conservative jellyfish James Moore was ordered to lie, Conservative MP Moore, like a good useless mindless toady told the media that the Conservatives consulted the closure of this life-saving service with interested parties, James Moore used the utterance.."We consulted broadly" snip...Well, they consulted no one, maybe they consulted someone with the last name Broadly(insert sarcasm here) but no one else was notified....Basically, Harper told James Moore to lie his face off, and he did, no questions asked.....This is a Harper Conservative trait, lie, steal, cheat, abuse while stuffing their own pockets with largesse from the public purse...James Moore isn`t alone..

When this coast guard station closes and people die, which they will who will join with me in a class-action murder charge against Stephen Treason Harper, on the water seconds count, minutes are precious, the question isn`t...Will someone die the question is....How many will die before the coast guard station is returned to its locale in Kitsalano?

Slashing food inspectors, coast guard stations, direct assaults on Canadians...

Let me be clear, Stephen Harper will be punted from office in the next Federal election, 1 year after being granted his majority he`s already 10% points behind Thomas Teflon Mulcair, no mud will stick, Mulcair speaks to truth and Harper is preaching to his choir and his choir only, which by the way are dying by the thousands everyday, he, like Christy Clark is in a political death spiral, neither can be saved from their destiny of headliners in the Museum of Political Losers...

Here in BC we have elected politicians who are walking around committing felonies against the public purse, Rich Coleman is a bold-faced liar who should be arrested, John Les should be jailed for land zoning fraud, jailed for betraying the public trust, even if El Bloatto thinks John Les is great, as written here at the Straight Goods, John Les is a criminal, period, we have Kevin Krueger wandering around looking for a brain and we have Christy Clark searching for an ESL school who will teach her how to speak English..And then there`s Kevin Falcon who hasn`t yet told the public that corporations will be able to keep all their HST inputs and carry on as if we voters accepted the HST, for those of you not paying attention the PST exemptions are coming back, along with new taxes, legal fees will remain taxed at 12%..Used car sales, boat sales will remain taxed at higher levels then pre-HST days, there is also a planned restaurant and entertainment tax, in other words these spineless lying BC Liberals have about $1.4 billion in new taxes coming to British Columbians, with the elimination of the HST rebate for the poor BC doesn`t need $2 billion in new taxation, only about $1.4 billion...

I`ve looked at the legislation to bring back the PST/GST..There isn`t a single past exemption listed, not one, what we have brewing in Patrick Kinsella premier`s office is a back-door HST, corporations will not be returning to the previous tax structure, in other words BC Liberal corporate masters will keep all their exemptions... Has even one mainstream media asked the direct question to Kevin Falcon...What direct question you might ask, this one..

{Minister Falcon, are corporations, corporations like Canfor, Teck Cominco, Encana gas going back to the exact same tax regime as before the HST was implemented?}


For if anyone asked Falcon the answer would be one of spineless deflection, it doesn`t matter to Christy and the Fiberals, they are done, there is no need to appease the public when maybe 4 or 5 Liberal MLAs at most might stand a chance of being re-elected.

It just amazes me how easily corrupt Government stooges can lie their face off, remember Shirley Glug Glug Bond telling BCers how with the new, tough-hard-nosed negotiated RCMP contract we control cost, we have more say, we have virtually 50/50 partnership with the NEW RCMP...Yet a mere week later Shirley shoeless Bond was shocked over wage increases, retroactive wage increases, ...Let me be clear, Shirley clueless and shoeless Bond had zero say over the RCMP contract, it was a take it or leave it offer, everything else was bullshit....We in BC have visitors tasered at the airport, we had Ian Bush shot in the back of the head in police lock-up, we have sexual deviants hiding behind a badge, we have Monty Robinson who killed a second time and obstructed justice still getting paid and Shirley shoeless Bond talks of our control....And as a deliberate slap in BC`s face the RCMP are shipping a disgraced drunken cop, a sexual abuser of power and position being transferred to BC and not one word from Shoeless Bond or even one blathering from ESL enrollee hopeful Christy cluck cluck Clark....Have they no shame...

And if it wasn`t bad enough shutting down the BC Rail corruption trial, fighting our auditor general John Doyle on pertinent BC rail documents, shutting down the Boss mining trial, now shutting down the BC utilities commission not for as Christy Clucking Clark states(to help families) but to stifle information on Smart meters, on run of river ripoff contracts, on $billions in hidden deferral accounts, a BC Liberal diseased Government who have so screwed BC`s economy that they will go to whatever means to hide the truth...An arrogant bunch of hell-bound political public trough lickers....

Federal Harper Cons and BC Liberal Harper Cons.....Birds of a feather who lie and thieve together...

And this rant ends with a Federal Harper CON MP who has admitted that Harper`s budget is pathetic, his draconian add-ons in a budgetary bill, assaults on Pensions, on the environment, on food inspectors..

" A Conservative MP says plenty of government backbenchers share opposition concerns about the wide array of controversial measures crammed into the massive budget implementation bill.


But British Columbia MP David Wilks says there’s nothing a lone member can do to defeat the bill or force the Harper government to split up its 425 pages.
Wilks made the comments during a meeting Tuesday with a small group of constituents in his Kootenay-Columbia riding.
Portions of the meeting were videotaped and posted online Wednesday, prompting Wilks to quickly backtrack.

In the video, Wilks is urged by several constituents to vote against the omnibus budget bill, which features a host of non-budgetary measures including changes to the environmental assessment process, Old Age Security, immigration and Employment Insurance rules.

But Wilks says without similar defiance from at least a dozen fellow Tories, voting against the bill would be an empty gesture that would get him booted out of the Conservative caucus.

Me doesn’t change the budget,” he tells the constituents. “If I stand up and say ‘no,’ it still passes.”
Pressed by one woman to break party ranks and represent the views of his constituents on the bill, Wilks responds: “If you want me as an independent, I’ll do that.”
In the candid exchange, Wilks reveals frustration over the way in which the bill has been presented.

“I think you’ll find a barrage of Conservatives do hold your concerns and I am one of them,” he says. “I do believe some of (the provisions) should be separated out.”

Opposition parties have dubbed the legislation a “Trojan Horse bill,” designed to sneak through a host of controversial changes to a wide array of programs with little individual scrutiny. But Wilks is the first Conservative MP to echo those concerns.

Shortly after the video surfaced, Wilks was back-pedalling.

“I wish to clarify my position with regard to Bill C-38, the Jobs, Growth and Long-term Prosperity Act,” Wilks said in a statement posted on his website.
“I support this bill and the jobs and growth measures that it will bring for Canadians in Kootenay-Columbia and right across the country.”

___________________________________________________________

Let me translate what David spinelles Wilks had to say.....

Hello voters, my name is David Wilks, I`m a trough sucking pig, I`ll say anything to you in person to appease you and get your votes but in reality I`m a spineless jellyfish who doesn`t want Jim Falherty and Stephen Harper to yell at me and kick me out of perkville, the Harper Government also reminded me that I gave a blood-oath to be a bootlicker and treasonous bastard, and rumour is rampant that I might get Bev Oda`s make-up artist to call my own..
My name is spineless jellyfish and unless others do the right thing and in the right numbers I`ll remain a silent bootlicking useless slug...Sincerely David Wilks, a true Conservative..
----------------------
P.S.
Hat`s off to Bob Mackin for some great work on the LDB privatization corruption scandal involving premier Patrick Kinsella and ESL enrollee Christy Clark, Bob is all alone on that file despite el bloatto clinging onto other`s hard work...
For shame on you commenters who allow the sponge king to mooch credits from real(honest journalists)...Typical MO of those who slag the dead and pretend to know those famous folk who died...Give my best to Ronnie Raygun and all the Popes, Prime Ministers, writers(of fame), celebrities, Cortes Island artists, give my regards to all those famous dead-people you wined and dined with.....National inquirer lives in BC..

Last Dance

Can you feel it, a tidal shift wrenching Canada left, this day has been a long time coming..


Thomas Mulcair leading Stephen Harper, poll after poll the dynamics of change are apparent, an engaged youth vote by a margin of 3 to 1 voting for the Big Orange Star, Adrian Dix polling at 50% plus..

I`m not going to bash Christy Clark, she`s been brought to her knees, Bill Good is also irrelevant, Last Thursday Kevin missing link Kreuger phoned in to Billy Good`s Liberal banner show to continue his smear campaign, comical desperation personified, a Gordon Campbell boot licker, the following day on the now drab cutting edge of the ledge show another desperate Liberal Pat Bell phoned in....Pat Bell was boasting stats Canada latest jobs report numbers...Excuse me, 220 members of the public affairs bureau are grinding out every bit of news and feeding it to BC`s media, including the fact cknw was reporting the jobs number on every newscast, twice per hour and still Pat Bell took time to interrupt a public call in show....It reeked of desperate days...

It matters not, British Columbia has closed their ears, a decade of corporate handouts, a dismantling of everything we in BC hold dear to our hearts was handed over to corporate boards and insider cronies, not only are we ready to embrace a huge NDP majority but Canada too, none of the slights towards Thomas Mulcair resonate, every week thousands more are joining the Big Orange Star...This dance, the last dance is all I have, failure of stars, Barack Obama failed, like Canada of the past see saw America`s choice has been Republican and Democrat and maybe at one time those parties were different but now they are mirror images of each other, outside of overt abortion and gun toting window dressing those two parties are identical, they heed to corporate banking cartels and munitions merchants, yes Obama failed and the only change was skin colour of the presidential pooch.

Conservatives and Liberals are too the same, oh sure Harper is scary bad but he`ll be gone after the next election, two decades of corporate control in Ottawa with both parties marching to the same pied piper, Brian Mulroney, Chretian, Paul Martin, Stephen Harper, every Prime Minster in the last 20 years like our American cousins have let corporate money buy and control policy, the world`s broke, Greece is set to default(they already defaulted 4 times over) and leave the Euro zone, if Greece stay Italy. Portugal, Spain and maybe even France will claim bankruptcy too, yes Europe was/is also controlled by the same powers, Canadian public, American public, our Governments, every single Government in the world is broke and personal debt levels are staggering, even Alberta with all that oil money is running huge deficits while creating an ever expanding $trillion dollars ecological disaster for future generations to deal with..

Yes indeed, and at the same time corporations are buckling under the weight of profits, this dance can`t continue and perhaps I`m dreaming, the Americans political scene(both sides) is ensnared in conglomerate netting, secret police policy and unconstitutional powers have been taken in almost complete darkness by administrations on both the left and right, the music has stopped for our American dancers, their choice is bad or ugly...

Crime infested political backrooms where your future is sold for a wink and a nod, Conservatives, Federal Liberals, both ancient parties are so entrenched in a system of bought politics and paid advisor direction, both are guilty of losing the East coast fishery, of poisoning water supplies, of allowing criminal destruction of habitat, these parties have taken turn Governing for hundreds of years, just like our American neighbors, two parties, two choices and when the choices is same old same old hope and change became slogans on a lawn...

We in Canada, in British Columbia have such a bright future, an idealogical driven party preparing to take control, Thomas Mulcair, Adrian not perfect Dix, farm land preservation, healthcare, social justice with a strong emphasis on hard work, a Big Orange star party with a clean slate to take over Parliament, a virgin federal party...Shall we dance.

Not only will policy be progressive and fair but Canadians from coast to coast have tuned out corporate media, lies from banks, Hocsteins and Fraser institutes are falling on deaf ears, the $20 trillion dollar Wall Street theft that continues to this day, oil companies that refuse to lower our gas prices even as oil has fallen below $94 dollars a barrel fuel lingers at $1.49 per litre(Maple ridge)..

The HST created no jobs, no consumer prices were lowered yet every corporate mouthpiece claimed those statements as true, the only consequence of the HST was a bigger Government and corporate bottom line..

We are on the verge of a new history, where Government is of the people and for the people, a Government beholden to no one but the future, BC Liberals are in a death spiral and Stephen Harper`s Conservatives are right behind them.

This is my last dance, our entire being rests on the success of the Virgin Big Orange Star Governments(movement), it`s our last chance..
