Generally speaking, summer is a bit of dead zone for political stories, however this summer has been a non-stop series of eyebrow raising news items that have continued right into September.
I’ve taken a bit of break for the last week and a half to concentrate on the back to school transition, but will be back next Monday with some stories on the Port Mann among other items. Rumour is new transportation minister Polak might be stripping or pushing back tolls altogether in order to get re-elected in her riding, since tolls are a huge issue here for everyone south of the Fraser and the Liberals need all the help they can get. We’ll also take a look back at other projects the Liberals have screwed British Columbians over on, via the lucrative shadow tolls that line corporate pockets.. if you’ve forgotten, or are still not aware of how Falcon and crew committed the province to 20 years + of payments to offshore and out of province corporations.
I’ll also be taking a look at why independent candidates are incredibly important in the next election here in B.C. and how they can keep the governing party and opposition in check.
That and more, next week! Until then, get out of the house and enjoy this fantastic late summer weather while you can, and enjoy the beautiful BC scenery like I did recently…
