First, let me say that my recent blog post titled : “ The Key to the B.C. Rail Sale lies in Premier Gordon Campbell’s beginnings in real estate and land development.”has become the second most viewed post in the two year history of this blog with a total of 22,435 individual and unique views!!
Think about that- over 20,000 people, the majority of them British Columbians, have found and read this post, and in doing so, I hope have explored the other links on my blogroll which lead to other dedicated individuals that have been ” on the case” for far longer than myself.
I’ve received letters from many of you who were shocked at the connections and deals detailed within the links in that piece,yet thankful to know it – and I have to say as well, that it speaks volumes to me that many of you are hesitant to leave public comments, as mentioned in several notes. For some reason, people don’t seem to trust our current leader and his crew… ( Gee, ya think? ) Letters have come in from as far away as Texas and California from British Columbians living and working in the U.S. and the message is a resounding: ” Stay strong and don’t let up!”
This leads me to this mornings post. I would like to thank BC Mary for her seeming ability to never sleep and bring us everything and anything related to the BC Rail deal. If you haven’t read her blog previously, it is a one-stop location with updates that are sometimes posted several times a day. There are links to other independent bloggers, reports,analysis, news stories and guest commentaries by the wonderful Robin Mathews. Check her out at http://bctrialofbasi-virk.blogspot.com/
Also to be mentioned are political commentator and strategist, Bill Tieleman, who often visits the court while in session to bring eye-witness accounts and his take on the proceedings. Spot on in his analysis, Bill’s office was at one point the target of a break in where the contents were completely ransacked and a cryptic message left behind – pointing to some sort of a RailGate connection . You can find all this and more at : http://billtieleman.blogspot.com/
Of course, there is The House of Infamy, Vive le Canada and The Gazetteer, who seems to be back from his work. And there are others – all one has to do is read the blogroll of all the above to find one after another, after another interesting link.
Now, back to the 70 things Gordon Campbell STILL has not told the public about the sale of BC Rail, courtesy of one of the best news feature writers in BC ( IMO ) Charlie Smith . In January of this year, NDP attorney general critic Leonard Krog tabled 70 questions about the now infamous privatization sale of BC Rail to CN.
To date, I think none of them have been answered.( Correct me if I’m wrong- it’s been a long week!) Check it out for yourself at http://www.straight.com/article-194779/gordon-campbells-privatization-bc-rail-leonard-krogs-70-questions
