Rich Coleman:So Just Who Will Feel The Wrath Of the Bully During Election 2013? #bcpoli #bccp2013 #bully

BC Liberal Campaign Training

First this post assumes two things, namely that there will be an election in BC in May 2013 and secondly that Rich Coleman will run again.

Neither of these two are gimmes given BC’s political climate and the party and province’s distaste for the Premier and Liberal leader Christy Clark.

It is possible that when the house returns, the majority Liberals will move (due to some manufactured calamity like Clark being deposed/ disposed of as leader) to introduce legislation to move ahead the fixed election date.

It is also not a gimme that Richie C will run again ( despite the blustery BS from him to the contrary) given the fact that he will most certainly be relegated to the back benches.

Also remember that a mere 6 months or so after the provincial election, nominations and preparations will begin for the next federal election. This is an election where the Prime Minister has pledged open nominations in all seats including Conservative bastions where Coleman resides and votes.He could find that enticing!

Also Clark could get the boot which also might look attractive to Coleman to make a run for her job too under and different election date.

But should things stay on course and we have an election in May, just exactly who might feel the wrath of Rich Coleman just a few scant months from now?

For the answer to that you need look no farther than the recent BC Liberal leadership campaign.

If you recall Coleman mulled over a run for the roses back then and changed his mind.

Ever wonder why that was?

One reason: Mary Polak bailed on him and threw her support behind Kevin Falcon.

Think Coleman has forgotten?

There is about as much chance of that as Polak forgetting that Coleman actually helped put a lot of money in her campaign in 2009 ( nothing untoward, it’s just how the BC Liberals do things).

Not a chance that will happen this time, nor will the volunteers from Coleman’s crew pitch in and help her out either.

Nope, Polak will have more to worry about than the specter of Cummins, the BC Conservatives,Green Party and the NDP to take her seat away.

She will have to spend her days wondering where Rich Coleman will strike next!

Don’t feel sorry for her , she of all people should have known what Coleman was like.

Political Insider Canadian Newsmaker of the Year: Carol Todd! #newsmakerof theyear,#bcpoli,#canpoli

We should all be proud of Carol Todd!

Without question would give my vote if I had one to Carol Todd!

Carol is the mother of Bullying Victim Amanda Todd.

Carol, after the death of Amanda, somehow managed to get front and center in front of the cyber bullying and teenage suicide issues to arouse public sentiment and get the government start on the road to real change to protect our kids.

I can only imagine the pain she must feel.

Without question my vote would go to Carol Todd.

Thank You Carol you have helped us all!

A Word About Bullies.

Maybe through Amanda’s death others will have a chance to live better lives.We can only hope.

Lately and with good reason all the talk has been about bullies and specifically the death of Amanda Todd.

Her death was a travesty.

This article written by Kelly McParland I think is one of the best ones written that not only speaks for Amanda but other victims of this little punished crime.

One of those people would be me.

I went to junior high in Winnipeg made up of grade seven,eight and nines.

I remember only too well being in grade 8 ( I was the smallest kid in the class) living a 1 minute walk from school.We lived next door to the school, I literally had to go out the back gate and pretty much the back stairs were there.

Didn’t matter, this guy got me most every day at least once. Never hit me just blocked my way, pushed me , and threatened to clobber me. Tormented me, scared me.

Bothered me so much I used to pretend to be sick so I wouldn’t have to go to school.

In reality and looking back there was no pretending at all. I was sick and scared.

This guy ( there was two, but one predominately and I remember the name like it was yesterday but I won’t mention it).

Still bothers me today and it makes me wonder how those events shaped my life and that was before the internet.

I had a nervous stomach and as a 12 year old kid became the Tagamet king of Winnipeg.

I often wonder if taking that drug is the root of all my digestive and other problems now .( Actually bullying is probably the root)

So lets hope Amanda’s life and death were not in vain, lets hope she brought this issue to the forefront where it should be.

Maybe then, the bullies will no longer be the funny people in cartoons but rather the monsters that they deserve to be.
