“The holiday season is here and children everywhere are writing to Santa, hoping that they haven’t made the naughty list. It turns out that it’s not only children who should be worried this year! I received a tip recently from a source in the North Pole and Santa is more than a little upset with the B.C. Liberals…

In fact, he said and I quote : “Why can’t they seem to get it right when it comes to all the most vulnerable children?”

Shameful truth be told, my source indicates that Santa has received more letters from children living in poverty in B.C. over the last 9 years,than anywhere else in Canada – and he’s not too happy about that.

In fact,my source indicated Santa’s been taking a good hard look at who’s been particularly naughty this year and has already ordered a rail car full of B.C. coal ! He still needed some help to decide who’s been naughtiest of all when it comes to politics in B.C. and I was more than happy to assist!

The Top 5 Naughty List in B.C. Politics

5)  Richard Butler, the lawyer representing the province in the Basi- Virk indemnity case who just filed a new affidavit that details how the earlier affidavit he filed was false.

Despite being a lawyer for many years, and knowing full well the penalty for perjury in the court, he now admits he “mis-stated” his original affidavit, claiming a faulty memory when it came to declaring if our government actually had detailed billing when it came to Basi and Virks lawyers…all very crucial information about the plea deal given to the two men which many believe, was in exchange for their silence.

When a lawyer ‘forgets’ and files false statements on behalf of the government ,whose been stonewalling their own auditor general who just wants the truth , that’s huge. Naughty naughty naughty. Not just coal for his stocking, but some Ginkgo Biloba in 1000mg tablets to help with his memory.

4) Bill Bennett.

To be brutally honest, I seriously thought Wild Bill must have fallen off of his quad, and was suffering a head injury after I heard him accusing NDP MLA Jagrup Brar of being infatuated with Communist Cuba!  Seriously, one of the craziest statements ever made by any politician, but even more so for a ‘top lieutenant’ in Christy Clarks election readiness team. Bill later had a sock stuffed in his mouth and was sent back out to the mountains, where his mouth couldn’t do any more harm.

3) Colin Hanson.

The man instrumental in the mess of lies and deceit behind the HST debacle - for that alone he’ll be getting a truck load of coal – has jumped from the frying pan, into the fire.

After announcing he wouldn’t be running for MLA again, he announced he would however, take on the role of deputy campaign manager for the BC Liberals in the 2013 election. Seriously? Seriously? You want to actually help this bunch of bungling,unethical politicians get re-elected? Oh, Colin, Santa isn’t going to like that, but maybe he’ll bring you a pair of hip-waders for all the crap you’re going to wading through next year…

2) Rich Coleman.

It’s really getting predictable that when the shit hits the fan,you can usually find Rich Coleman getting his raincoat on. Where do I begin? How about with one of his biggest backers, Patrick Kinsella, whose name seems to go hand in hand with backroom deals for the BC Liberals?

Coleman been very naughty this year, recently in the news for some downright unethical deals and donations between a BC brewer and his office, that resulted in some tax policy changes that.. surprise surprise.. would benefit the brewer to the tune of millions.

Story breaks, words get tossed around like special prosecutor and of course.. ” it was all just a misunderstanding” Sure. Just like bullying a potential candidate for his party into signing a letter he didn’t want to sign was too…

1) Christy Clark.

Without a doubt, Clark takes the number one spot on my naughty list, and it sure doesn’t have anything to do with her dubious appearance on the National Posts Vixens in Vancouver list… thanks to Ian Reid for that one. Stay tuned for a new pilot on Fox next year : “Premier on the Prowl “- grrrowwl !

Unfortunately, the still unelected premier has made a mockery of democracy by refusing to call an election early and get a mandate from the voters – something she promised while campaigning for the Liberal leadership.

Follow that with an endless stream of artificial photo ops, bad press and poor decisions, and you have one big reason female voters don’t like her. Whether its claiming  false job creation numbers,or claiming tough times and tightened belts, then spending $15 million on ads ,everything she says is contrived gibberish.

She has government workers on an attack site on the public dime, gone on a spending spree on the public dime, and goes through staff like some people go through tissues.

I think the people of B.C. would agree: Santa, instead of that good old B.C. coal, how about sending her one nicely wrapped reality check?

Happy Holidays, and I’d love to see your  political choices for Santa’s naughty list!

    Should have done a ‘top 10 list’, Laila. Falcon and Barisoff have been pretty darn naughty, too! (I’m sure there are at least 3 more to make it an even 10.)

    I really liked the Christmas card the Abbotsford police chief is sending out. Works for me. Now I think we should send something like it to some of those lieberals, with a ballot box & Santa.

    If its so great in B.C. & its jobs, jobs, jobs, why are so many charities doing food & toy drives? If there are so many jobs then why are there so many people at the food bank? One in 10 people at the Surrey food bank are employed so the wages are so bad people can’t make ends meet. I am sure these people would love some of those high paying jobs christie is talking about all the time. It might be better if she just sent the $15M to the food banks around the province.

    The Canada start here ads are ridiculous. If you come from Europe, Nfld could be saying the same thing. the artic could be saying the same thing & so could all the provinces which border on the U.S.A. Canada starts everywhere, at its borders. It might be more honest if the ads read, China starts here.

    Merry Christmas

      I saw that – some Christmas card!!!

      I agree with your points- we do have so much poverty homelessness, and often not talked about ,the working poor. People who are working fulltime but barely getting by.

      She is a reactionary leader, who makes reactionary decisions on impulses and as damage control, not good policy. She needs to find the good grace to simply accept she is not suited for this position and step down before she embarresses the province any more than she has.

      My good friend over at Blog Borg Collective has a steller post about some more Liberal naughtiness…. Falcon and deJong make guest appearances. http://blogborgcollective.blogspot.ca/2012/12/the-good-bad-ugly-this-post-is-about.html

    With food costs going up another 6%? How are family’s finances going to keep up? Heat, hydro, MSPBC, insurances, gasoline and everything has gone up. Adding the HST, onto pretty much everything means, more expenses go onto credit cards. Back in the spring, I was talking to one lady. Her husband had been cut back to part time, in his mill job. She was working two part time minimum wage jobs. One job was seasonal. House insurance, vehicle insurance, car payments, property taxes, gasoline, and even groceries, go onto their credit cards. They put their house up for sale, before they lose it she said.

    The Campbell/Clark BC Liberals, don’t even deserve a lump of coal for x-mas. They deserve a lump on their heads for their, lies, deceit corruption and thefts. Campbell twice lied and cheated to win his elections too.

      Just about to post the full column here… but he sort of does, doesn’t he? I think his government stole many Christmas’s from vulnerable people in this province. A pox on them all.
