As hard as it it to believe B.C. Liberal Laurie Throness said in an interview in the Chilliwack Times that having election signs up before the by-election is called is no big deal.
Of course that is against the rules and is therefore cheating.
So to Mr. Throness cheating is no big deal.
In another act of ,well stupidity,members of his campaign team went to city hall today to pay the $500 permit to place signs during an election. They were of course refused because there is no election on.
A good politician knows the rules and also surrounds himself with people that know them as well.
These cheaters sound like rank amateurs? Do they not take the potential by-election seriously enough to at least read the rules?
Can you imagine them as handlers of the public trust?
Are you as dumbfounded as I am that Mr.Throness thinks cheating is no big deal?
Are you as blown away as I am that he openly states that on the public record?
Coming on the heels of their original list of stupid demands, teachers have voted 87% in favor of striking on Monday.
If you have a small business or any business for that matter, expect a call from a parent asking to reschedule or for time off. Have your kids in day care? Expect them to be more overcrowded than usual.
Can’t find anywhere to put your children? The teachers union doesn’t care,they are off for 3 days beginning Monday.
Are you a pot dealer? Stock up it’s going to be a busy week!
This action is in response to bill 22 introduced yesterday by Education Minister Abbott.
If the Education Minister believes strongly in this bill,then he should order the legislature in session over the weekend so that proceedings can be hurried along and the strike prevented.( Before anybody argues cost,consider what it will cost in late August to recall the legislature to prevent a full on strike)
Working over the weekend would be counter to the governments plan to use this as a stepping stone to recover in the polls.
What will happen?
Well it’s only 10am on Thursday,plenty of time for Premier Christy Clark to come out, contradict and throw the Education Minister under the bus.
The result? The government will come out looking just as stupid as the original demands made by the teachers and nothing will be solved.
Their standing on the polls? Worse than it is now!
This time,tossed under the front wheels; Tariq Ghuman . This in an attempt to covers the Premiers ass on the big fumble inviting known gangster,hit-man ,murder,terrorist and Federal Liberal Bag-man,Jaspar Atwal to the annual budget shindig.
Who knows maybe the Liberals brought him in for training,a potential mediator appointee in the teacher’s strike talks.
I hate to keep harping on the budget day tweet by the premier,but she had no reason to do that. She could have kept quiet and let Kevin Falcon present the budget and that part of the day would have been fine.
But she didn’t,she lied.
This from a Premier who ran her leadership campaign on open accountable honest government.
It’s not happening and as taxpayers you have a right to be choked.
There are lots of other hidden taxes other than the aforementioned MSP Lie.
A report out today suggests that there will be a major labor shortage in the next 10 years unless the province of B.C. can attract workers to fill the jobs. In fact the net deficit would be some 61,500 more jobs than there would be people to fill them.
Given the tax and spend policies of the NDP and the current NDP lite BC Liberals this should concern everybody.
At present current government tax policy is driving people out of the province at a time when they should be planning and attracting families to prevent this from happening.
It seems our current Premier’s family first agenda applies to families in other provinces and not ones here in British Columbia.
This poll is like a horror story of what could happen to the economy if the BCNDP came to power. Adrian Dix would star as Freddy Krueger.
One can only imagine how the job deficit figure would climb with these people in power!
It is time for a major change in this province and tax relief is right at the top. The people have spoken and gotten rid of the HST.They now have to finish the job and say goodbye to the BC Liberals and the NDP!
