Seize your democracy

Since Christy Clark and our current government does not see fit to supply those opposed to the HST with the same resources they themselves have stolen from the people, I think we need to aid those anti-HST groups out there getting the message out. As such, I am organizing an anti-HST rally/educational demonstration in my area in … Continue reading Seize your democracy

Christy Clark’s “Families First” platform doesn’t apply to victims or families after all, as BC govt. slashes throat of Lady Justice once again.

I have a question for Christy Clark. Why is it that your government can find millions and millions of dollars to "explain" the HST to us, but can't find the money to keep our courtrooms safe- and open? Interesting enough, for the second time in this Stanley Cup series, a very contentious news headline has … Continue reading Christy Clark’s “Families First” platform doesn’t apply to victims or families after all, as BC govt. slashes throat of Lady Justice once again.

” No. I won’t hold a public inquiry into BC Rail…” ” Yes, I like the HST…” ” Uh,my brother has no formal role in my campaign, but…” ~ Christy Clark, Global news interview with Randene Neil December 08th, 2010

Yes,Christy Clark certainly is telegenic - described as cute in the way chipmunks are often referred to, but like the little rodent, she doesn't really bring anything new to the table, and appears completely opportunistic. A well known and talked about tidbit among politico's is that she is only looking to make her way to Ottawa in the easiest way possible … Continue reading ” No. I won’t hold a public inquiry into BC Rail…” ” Yes, I like the HST…” ” Uh,my brother has no formal role in my campaign, but…” ~ Christy Clark, Global news interview with Randene Neil December 08th, 2010

It’s amazing what you find on Youtube, courtesy of the BC Liberals.

So, there I was wasting time between periods of the LA Vancouver game, cruising YouTube's political channels, and I found what appears to be a some kind of public service announcement about why the HST is so good, and why we should have it now. Courtesy of the BC Liberals.  So, I watched it all, had … Continue reading It’s amazing what you find on Youtube, courtesy of the BC Liberals.
