It brought back memories of the Federal Election one year ago. Daily ( I was the Campaign Manager for the Conservatives in Fleetwood Port Kells) our signs would be trashed. In particular we would get signs totally destroyed or missing along 176th Ave.
I used to tell the sign guys it was no big deal and anybody that had that kinda time on their hands had a few screws loose between their ears. Just repair and move on and don’t confront him. An election sign is not worth getting hurt over.
Don’t have any pictures but now that we know all the budget day BS with Jaspal, the Premier and the BC Liberals kinda makes a person wonder doesn’t it?
Chilliwack is not that far from 176th. Maybe he took the show on the road.
The Alberta PC Party with its left leaning leader, Premier Alison Redford started the current Alberta election with a big lead in polls but seen that lead evaporate to the point where it looks like they are going to be swept out of office by the upstart Wildrose party.
Things are so tough for the Redford Tories that She has taken to airwaves to dissuade Albertans from paying attention to leaders and spending more time considering local candidates.
This strategy never works and certainly won’t work here.
Over in BC the BC Conservatives watch this with interest for a number of reasons.
Firstly we are a scant few weeks away from by elections of our own that could set the trend for the general election a year or from now.
Secondly, NDP Leader Dix has already slipped up with his recent fare-beating episode. A few more of these and our own upstart Conservative Party could ride the Western to victory.
I blogged back in February during all the pomp and circumstance surrounding the Premier’s Photo-op regarding her new Family day that it would be a job killer and not provide the level of comfort for families that the Premier had intended.
I am sorry to say I was right but job figures released this morning show employers took a collective ” this is going to cost me a fortune, I better start planning for this now approach to hiring” and scaled back full-time jobs in favor of part-time ones.
Mostly likely, at some point today, the BC Liberal government will try to put a positive spin on the creation of 7,200 part-time jobs.
Nothing they can say or do will make up for the loss of 8900 full-time jobs , especially given all the new rate increases taxpayers incurred at the beginning of this month.
With polls showing the BC Voters are leaning towards voting in the NDP and all their job killing payroll taxes, the Premier is placing British Columbia in a very perilous position.
We surely don’t want to become a have not province, do we?
It seems everything this Premier and her government touch turns to mud.
Just like a mobster ducking a hit; British Columbia Premier Christy Clark slipped out the back hallways of the hotel without answering questions about the latest poll. ( Where was pit bull and PR knucklehead Sara MacIntyre ?)
Polls conducted and released today by Angus Reid show a mass exodus of support form the gaffe prone B.C. Liberals to the B.C. Conservatives.
This poll was conducted after MLA John Van Dongen announced last week he was tearing up his B.C.Liberal membership card and crossing the floor to sit as an independent. He of course , as you know by now, took out a membership in the B.C. Conservative Party.
The poll revealed the party of the inept premier Clark and Wind Bag Rich Coleman have now dropped into a tie with the BC.Conservatives at 23% of decided voters.
The poll also showed that with all the sleaze and corruption caused by the B.C. Liberals including but not limited to: their dealings around the HST, B.C>. Rail and Basi Virk, BC’ers are almost ready to lose their minds and vote in the NDP to a majority.
With the by-elections on the horizon and John Van Dongen retaining counsel to try to sort out the B.C. Rail mess, The B.C. Liberals have yet to hit rock bottom.
To put a little more egg on the face of her party our Illustrious Premier went out for a photo-op today to unveil her parties “New ” transportation strategy. Problem is over half of that had already been announced to the public last February.
These Plans were unveiled to the public at that annual soiree known as budget day where Clark’s team invited such dignitaries as Jaspal Atwal
With the Conservative surge it will be only a short time from now when polls reflect that they are the only viable alternative to the NDP.
Given all their fear mongering and bullshit about splitting the vote, the Christy Clark team should consider standing down and surrendering their government prior to the general election , that is if they have the best interest of the province at heart!
