Oh indeed friends, the images in my mind are quite clear, Wally Oppal sneaking through back doors in Delta to avoid protesters and criticism,that was standard fare all through the month May in Delta, Wally Oppal would "slither" his way into B.C. Liberal friendly events in Delta, yet regardless of the Canwest spin, despite the glowing Global coverage Wally Oppal was losing badly in internal polling numbers in Delta, the fine folks in Delta have lived through dozens of Gordon Campbell lies in the past, Robert Nuefeld lied about power lines, lies about Port expansion,lies about Gateway and the notorious South Fraser Perimeter road, the best farm land in B.C. being sold off to Gordon Campbell`s corporate backers, yes indeed, the people of Delta were well aware of the depth and scale of past lies foisted on them by a devious Campbell government.
Meanwhile independent candidate Vicki Huntington had proven herself as an ally of the people of Delta, a steady voice, honesty, upfront, she put her word and constituents before scoring political points, so the battle rages, :Wally versus Vicki: and we knew which way the winds were blowing, so bring in the Gordon lying machine, I remember several of the late in the game announcements, Wall y Oppal and Gordon Campbell flanked by Bob Lenerduzzi and many Vancouver Whitecap soccer pros....The Announcement! (read the election promise here)http://www.vancouversun.com/Liberals+promise+million+soccer+centre+Delta/1558230/story.html
Gordon Campbell pledged over $17 million dollars of Provincial funding for Delta to build a training center for the Whitecaps, what an announcement,great news for Delta, new soccer fields for the public and the community,work for local builders and certainly revenues from this activity would flow to the city.
Now lets clear up a few facts first, Lois Jackson the Mayor of Delta is a staunch supporter of Gordon Campbell and his loudest cheerleader, she`s even a bigger cheerleader of Campbell than is Dianne Watts of Surrey.
Yet the devil is in the details, for Gordon Campbell and Wally Oppal said the money, the bribe would only be available if they were returned to office, which to me, I found that statement to be offensive, for if this training facility was needed, if it was good for the community funding should have been nailed down, well we know what Happened, the people of Delta spoke and voted Wally Oppal out and sent him to the pasture where he can graze amongst the cow patties.
And friends, we know how the Habitual liar works, we are all too familiar with his Governing techniques, and even though Gordon Campbell won the election (allbeit through lies and fraud) you know, well at least I knew that Gordon Campbell would have his retribution and punish Delta for their betrayal against the Campbell crime family.
So low n behold there the story appeared, Delta has pulled the plug on the soccer training center, Delta and Lois Jackson(Gordon Campbell friendlies) are downplaying the announcement and are directing blame to the Whitecaps, well friends nothing could be further from the truth, there is no way the City of Delta would kiss good-bye over $17 million dollars of funding to build a modern training center with many community fields and having the Vancouver Whitecaps drawing crowds thus spurring economic activity!
And Bob Lenerduzzi isn`t going to say anything negative against the Habitual Compulsive liar Gordon Campbell, not when B.C. taxpayers are on the hook for a $600 million dollar retractable boondoggle roof on the old B.C. Place stadium, certainly Bob Lennerduzzi isn`t going to say squat, especially when there is still no funding in place for the retractable roof, no business plan, the retractable roof is far from a done deal so Bob Lenerduzzi will say nothing.

That folks is how Gordon Campbell operates, the fine people of Delta were very wise in not trusting Gordon Campbell or Wally Oppal.
There is no limit to Gordon Campbell`s lies, right now friends I can sense the fear he is living in, dis-mantling the freedom of information office, muzzling his Cabinet and zombie MLAs, a full frontal pimp job from Canwest newspaper, a mis-information campaign from local papers owned by the Asper propaganda machine, Prince George has to be the most manipulated people in the Province, the RCMP with phony arrest,phony investigations, Ludwig Wiebo comes to mind, I remember,the RCMP said they had the bomber, 150 officers and three weeks later nary a charge has been laid, Don Plecas with his stupid propaganda piece about snitches which has done nothing but re-start the shooting gallery on our streets.
The Vancouver Sun with nothing but Olympic feel good stories, the Conference board of Canada is in full pimp mode, making the wild claim that B.C. because of the Olympics will lead Canada in growth, the conference board of Canada is nothing but a whos who of business appointees beholden to their political master, Paul Taylor is a member,nuff said! (read what the conference board states here) http://www.vancouversun.com/business/Vancouver+poised+stage+economic+comeback+2010+Conference+Board/2491347/story.html
And what I find absolutely hilarious with the Conference board of Canada and Kirk Lapointe (Editor and chief) of the Vancouver Sun, is this, they haven`t a clue what is going on,Kirk Lapointe doesn`t know what his left hand is doing but I can imagine what his right hand is doing, and why would I say that? Well here`s the deal friends, on the same day the Conference board of Canada made that Claim about the Olympics Vaughn Palmer in his column stated....After reading several reports from proffessional audit and accounting firms,including reports from the B.C. Liberals and other studies that the Olympics are a net loss,no economic benefit, the Olympics will do nothing for B.C. but make some people feel good. (snip) (read Vaughn Palmer`s contradictory story here)http://www.vancouversun.com/business/Only+demonstrable+benefit+Olympics+feel+good+factor/2488801/story.html
Hilarious, Perhaps the "Snake Oil salesman Paul Taylor" and the conference board should have checked with Vaughn Palmer and coordinated their efforts rather than making the Vancouver Sun look like a bigger joke than usual!
The scale of lies and spin from the Campbell government is staggering, as one astute contributor notes Lois Jackson and city council in Delta are nothing but Campbell stooges, and apparently there is more to the training center than meets the "eye" ...It`s alleged that small sports groups and community groups in Delta were getting pushed out as a result of the training center. Again with the Habitual Liar Gordon Campbell, there isn`t one deal that his government makes that is straight forward, there is always an angle,a catch, a poison pill, yes indeed friends, Gordon Campbell nothing but a "poison pill"
