Olympic spirit Not, Gordon Campbell stabbed BCers in the back

In case you haven`t noticed, we are being told by the pro-olympic lobby that regardless of how we feel now that we WILL LOVE THE GAMES, and, anyone who feels differently is off kilter.

Let me first say, I am a huge sports fan and I will be watching many of the events on T.V. but...

CTV....Global....And especially the NAUSEATING olympic pandering on cknw, I was up early today and apparently today is the 30 day away mark from the start of the spectacle, well, starting with Phillip Till, non-stop olympic talk, next is Bill(Boring) Good,.....Where is my throw-up bucket? The non-stop olympic push from Bill Good is pathetic, all olympics all day,all callers getting through are pro-olympic boosters, obviously the calls are being screened,what else is new, even Gary Mason is in the olympic push, Mason said, It`s common place for Olympic host cities a month before the games that the people feel a little blue,but, he and other (Pre-Arranged callers) said, at Salt lake city, at Torino, at Sydney, the people in the last month before the games suddenly changed their feelings and embraced the games and got swept up in emotion,in self pride and on and on.......Am I starting to blush.

No siree Bob, this is the Straight Goods, lets start with a few of the hundreds of lies....The Athletes village, nothing but a scam from start to finish, Vancouverites will be paying increased municipal taxes for decades to pay off that boondoggle, olympic security, Colin Hansen lied about the cost of the security for years, Colin Hansen Claimed the cost would be 170 million, now it`s over 1 $billion dollars, OK, we are realists in BC, everyone knew that there would be costs over-runs and traffic hassles but.....

There is a huge difference between our BC olympic games and other host cities game`s,those cities weren`t betrayed and stabbed in the back in the back in the lead up to the games, and that difference lays at the feet of the compulsive liar Gordon Campbell.


We had a election in May/2009, roughly 6 months before the games and....."Our BC election was a fraudulent con" Gordon Campbell and Colin Hansen lied their faces off during the election, they lied about our deficit, Campbell claimed the deficit would be 495 $million dollars but the deficit turned into a 4 $billion dollar deficit 800% higher than Gordon(compulsive LIAR) Campbell said it was going to be, and, Campbell the liar campaigned on no HST tax and he lied, Gordon Campbell knew he was going to ram it down our throats right after the election,and, Gordon the liar campaigned saying there would be no cuts to Health or education, he lied again and again and Gordon Campbell cancelled programs for the disabled,for the autistic, for special olympics,for students, Campbell has stuck his hands in the pockets of seniors in care homes, cancelled over ten thousand surgeries, cancelled MRIs, Campbell has cut re-training money for the un-employed, illegally cut gaming monies to charities,to sports and arts groups, on and on and on, Gordon Campbell has gored everybody`s ox except his rich corporate friends.
So, like I was saying, myself I would have been angry with the Gordon Campbell liberals winning the last election no matter what, but I have a sour taste in my mouth, I feel that I have been de-frauded, swindled, I feel dirty, the scale and depth of the fraud in our last BC election is beyond compare, I am in my 40s and my dad is in his 80s(And he is sharp as a tack and crushes me everyday when we watch jeopardy) ...... nor I or my dad have ever seen the scale of deception,lies and outright criminal actions as what Gordon Campbell did during the election, there was no ministry,no cabinet minister,no BC Liberal MLA who didn`t lie during our last BC election!
So excuse me for not embracing the games, I will watch the events on T.V., I hope we don`t lose too much money on these games, I hope everyone enjoys watching the sports but, this isn`t Salt Lake city or Torino or Calgary, no, Gordon Campbell stabbed British Columbians in the back, and I suspect that I`m not alone with a sour taste in their mouth, regardless of whether the games are a success I will not forgive Gordon Campbell or any BCLiberal, and for any sitting government to think that they will get any kind of bounce in the polls over a sporting event when they lied,deceived,conned,de-frauded, taxed,cut, and ultimately killed the weakest among us is foolhardy.
Here this loud and clear Gordon Campbell and all the rest of you BC Liberals, you will all pay a heavy political price for your criminal election fraud you perpetrated on British Columbians!

The Olympics and phoney boosterism - Gag! Even the Today Show on NBC has their own phoney Olympic countdown going on for their place on top of Grouse Mountain.

Grant, it would be great to see you with a large sign saying "Campbell is a lying criminal" on the Today Show while it is broadcast all over the U.S.

That would be justice served on a platter!

The way of current weather, he Vancouver Winter Olympics maybe the Vancouver Spring Olympics, where white water rafting may become a 'Spring' sport.

Is there any truth to the rumour that Furlong is trying to get venues in Alberta, in case the Gods of Winter in BC do not produce??

Bravo Grant
Couldn't have said it better myself. I think the start of Campbells misfortunes is here and will culminate in the surprise for him in the closing ceremonies when he doesn't get to pass the torch.
As I blogged at my place its the VANCOUVER Olympics not Provincial like Campbell seems to think.
Like you I like sports. In fact when I was young and my bones not so brittle I was a competitive skier. Downhill, GS, and jumper. I love the sport. But unlike you I will not be watching them on TV. I do not have TV. Too many other things to do in retirement. So many in fact I haven't been out there in two years.

Thanks Grant for your ever informative articles. Something to consider when disecting the Five Ring Circus is the sponsorship with ICBC and those disgusting 2010 license plates. I have contacted ICBC to inquire as to what percentage of the sales of these plates go to our athletes and what percent is applied to VANOCS shortcomings. That was 6 months ago and no return e-mail from anyone at ICBC. Could you please find out that info and post please ?

That article is a little old but the number from ICBC is 15 million dollars,and, all crown corporations have given BC taxpayer money to Vanoc....

As for me being blunt,here`s the deal, for years in this province the media has been nice to Gordon Campbell,even when he does rotten things the media uses words like unadvised cuts, or short sightedness, or problems could arise from the government`s actions.....

Well, no more, no being soft,time to ramp it up,time to tell it the way it is.......Time for The Straight Goods.

The same CKNW crap was also prevalent 23 years ago when Bill Boring Dudd's CKNW morning show host predecessor Gary Bannerman was also a "rah rah rah" booster and buddy of Socred Bill Vander Zalm.

Even the head of Expo '86 sent CKNW's glug, glug, glug Gary Bannerman a pathetic thank-you letter for his nauseating Expo '86 pandering.

Thanks Grant, But I was more interested in the amount that our athletes in training receive from the proceeds of these butt ugly plates. The reason I made inquiries is that the MEDIA including the Nanaimo Daily Snooze owned by the Canwest group had ads stating that the sale of these plates helped athletes in training. Which is BULLSHIT no? No reporter would bite on the request including Vaughn Palmer at the Sun. Sheesh I thought he would proceed to print with such an unbiased opinion as his own. lol.

Well,one thing I do know, both Gordon Campbell and Stephen Harper are spending lots of money on our OLYMPIC athletes, although the hockey players are millionaires,our curlers are professional, there is the OWN the PODIUM program, lots of free,paid training for our OLYMPIC athletes, and millions spent on a "top secret" program to build better skis,snowbords,luges,skeletons etc etc...

The main reason the OLYMPIC athletes are getting good funding is both Harper and Campbell want to wrap themselves in the flag and cozy up with winning athletes, as for amateur sport,childrens sport, special Olympic athletes,school sports, they all have been chopped.
Now as for how much money of the ICBC plate money went to sports,well it`s so convoluted,100s of millions have been funneled to Vanoc, even the 1.3 billion dollar athlete`s village paid money to Vanoc, Millennium development(The company who was tangled up with the Fortress loan sharks)paid Vanoc 1 $million dollars plus to be a sponsor,figure that one out?...In fact, I suspect but have no proof,that Millennium development funneled a whole lot more to Vanoc.

Thanks Grant, convoluted would be the answer as to why ICBC never responded to my enquirie. Keep up the good work,Your catching on in Nanaimo BC.

I, would never miss watching the Olympics on TV. However, these 2010 games, I just can't get in to it. I, know, it is because of Campbell and Hansen, lying to we, BC citizens. BC, is in the worst mess, of all the other provinces put together. Campbell, has sent our mills to China, just last week, there were 300 more who, lost their jobs, this mill, will probably, go to the same place. Campbell, has closed hundreds of schools. There will have to be 800 more teachers laid off,because, of serious budget cuts, again. Campbell, has sold everything, he can lay his hands on. How does BC recover from Campbell, this province has nothing to recover with. Campbell, needs a mental evaluation, he, doesn't make a lick of sense. How in the hell can, BC, residents, who have lost their jobs, their homes and their savings, pay, that asinine HST, with what? Harper, has backed Campbell up, by, bribing Campbell to force the HST, regardless. Harper, pulled one of Campbell's dirty tactics, he, shut parliament down, to hide from the tough questions he didn't want to answer. Harper, Iggy, Campbell and Hansen, are, the worst politicians, in the history of Canada. They are a disgrace, to the citizens, and Canada.

3:31PM....Well said,no other Olympic city has been stabbed in the back the way Gordon Campbell stabbed us, and they expect us to forget about all that...

I won`t forget, either will most BCers.

The way Campbell has treated our native people, is, so atrocious, it's enough to make a person ill. The, childrens choir, who were promised to sing at the Olympics, were cancelled, they are Canadian culture, and should have, had, first consideration. Needless to say, those children were very disapointed and hurt. Then, the beautiful hand knitted siwash sweaters, that were really authentic and beautiful, were denied, in favor, of, made in China sweaters, and were more expensive. Those sweaters, were, original, hand knitted sweaters, by, the aboriginal women, that would have meant far more, to people, than, sweaters from China. Campbell, take a slow boat to China, and stay there.
