If you aren’t outraged, you haven’t been paying attention.

In honour of BC Mary, I am marching forth and continuing the good fight, and how.

Go figure. I've compared it in …

Straight from the horses mouth: Premier Campbell and Huggies Hansen tell it like it was – back in 2008.

Watch this video, and listen carefully. Listen to Gordon Campbell talk about how bad the economy is, and how changes will have to be made. Listen to Colin talk about how if a P3 financer can't get financing, another company can step in because so many are out there waiting. Now, this is from 2008. Not …

“BC for Sale” – on Vimeo
