John Horgan and Andrew Weaver, British Columbia's New Government, Closer To The Heart





Written by Grant G     (With a little help from Rush)

"And the men who hold high places...Must be the ones who start...To mold a new reality..Closer to the heart ..Closer to the heart"

By the end of July John Horgan and Andrew Weaver will be the architects of not only a new government but creators of a new governance model, at least new to British Columbia...one molded in cooperative progress for the people of British Columbia...a new singular voice made up out of diverse views, a group of governors who know only through cooperation will any legislation go forward...


 "The blacksmith and the artist...Reflect it in their art...They forge their creativity...Closer to the heart ..Yes closer to the heart"


British Columbia citizens under BC Liberal rule have been starved of Democracy, had our voices reduced to mere background noise...that will come to end under John Horgan's leadership for as I write this....Not often, if ever have I seen a group of a elected officials who actually get it...the path to longevity is not a long and winding road, the path to the promised land is straight forward, it stares us in the face, doesn't involve the exploitation of finite resources or environmental degradation....electoral success and longevity survival in British Columbia will only come to those that embrace the air, land and water....agricultural lands preserved for food production, fresh water rivers laden with wild salmon protected from the corporate pillagers, healthy forests, for the health of not only humans but for the survival of all species...


"Philosophers and plowmen..Each must know his part...To sow a new mentality..Closer to the heart ..Yes closer to the heart, yeah, oh"


  A government closer to the heart, no more blank stares, no more cabinet minister footnote memos promising to do better next time, a child dying in care must be heard, like a tree falling in the forest, it does make noise, it crashes and thrashes, no child dies silently, no child goes hungry unseen, poverty is not a silent killer....

"Whoa whoa...You can be the captain...And I will draw the chart...Sailing into destiny..Closer to the heart"


British Columbia's most responsive legislative assembly is set to burst from it's embryo and take flight, new laws, fresh legislation, measures and means, no more corporate treachery, no more governance where the needs of the few, or the one overrule the rights of the many...


I look forward to John Horgan and Andrew Weaver fast tracking legislation and freeing up monies for the most needy...No child in British Columbia or Canada for that matter should go to bed hungry, or attend a dangerous crumbling at risk school, teachers should not have to feed hungry children, although i'm delighted they do...


Seniors need the minimum care standards, legislative care standards must be enforced, not just deferred to the future...Senior's future is the here and now...those on disability or welfare must be given enough support to survive..humanity starts with respect...


It costs society less to house the homeless than to leave the misdirected on the streets, it's less expensive to keep seniors clean and homebound than to have them waste away in understaffed warehouses of germs...


A new government where those left behind and forgotten are not only remembered but included in British Columbia's future...


Longevity and political survival in British Columbia will only be secured by a government that does the right thing, that listens, that changes direction and points to a bright sustainable future...


A government that is "Closer to the heart"


Make me proud Andrew Weaver.....lead us to the promised land John Horgan...

Grant . . . you don't seem all that worried that there's likely something up the sleeve of the BC Libs when they reconvene the Leg in a couple of weeks that will stall or prevent NDP/Green Gov't from forming. Everyone I talk to has said I'm not counting my chickens; I'll believe it when I see it. What's with the timing now for Clark to bring the BC Legislature back?
Was it not said by CC today that they will not hold a confidence vote until a speaker is appointed. They are not coming forward with a speaker to date, and if they do, how unbiased do you expect the appointment to be?
I'm glad you are ready to take a sigh of relief! Some folks out there are not holding their breath just yet.

It was reported earlier today the the libs will provide a speaker. I think the LG would take a dim view of her dragging her feet. A money bill must be passed in Sept. which would allow for a confidence vote. If the libs provide the speaker they'll still only have 43 votes, 1 less than the ndp/greens who'd have 44. There'd be no need for the speaker to vote since there'd be no tie.

No, i'm not worried at all....Do BC Libs have something up their sleeve, indeed they do...tons of money..$10 million for another election..

However, Horgan and Weaver are going to pass legislation and govern for the majority...govern from the heart...another election, when it comes will solidify the NDP/Green movement, and it is, a movement I mean...

I've said it before, "if a government does the right for the people reelection is never in doubt"..

Govern for all BCers...

Cheers

A powerful post.

I too fear some last-minute nonsense when the legislature is reconvened, but I really hope you are right, Grant. It has been 16 filthy years under the BC liberals.

The BC Liberals and their big money supporters are already tweeting out campaign style messages and organizing campaign style events.

We're heading into a summer election based on the trumped up rationale that we *must* have a *totally* nonpartisan speaker to "maintain democracy".

Just don't burst out laughing if you happen to think of Linda Reid or how the BC Liberals have flouted democracy and screwed BC at every opportunity. HST? breaking contracts? firing health workers to protect big pharma? keeping kids in poverty? Mt Polley? exponential rise in homelessness? bogus white elephant projects costing taxpayers undisclosed billions? Actually that's a list to make you cry.

So buckle up, reach out, dig deep for the spare change, and we're going to have get every progressive person we know voting: young, old, poor, well off, anyone who cares for British Columbia and wants a change for the better.

This is the election that will determine what our future holds: banana republic or caring and thriving province that works for everyone.
