The last few years my mind has been burning, I listen to conversations and time and time again the words I hear are of anger or disappointment and always it`s government related, this raging fire ablaze in my head cannot be put out, maybe I am in need of therapy, time to concede, capitulate to the powers that be but something prevents me from laying down, I try and educate people where ever I go, funny though, where ever I have lived the riding has never voted for Gordon Campbell with the exception of 2001, in South Burnaby while riding buses I have made public speeches pointing out the crimes of Gordon Campbell, while listening to people and if I hear them complaining of one thing or another I go out of my way to tell them why it has happened, and almost always the culprit is Gordon Campbell and his MLAS.
Occasionally my outrage can`t be contained, 2 years back I was on the radio twice a week and I was determined to embarrass Gordon Campbell, for months I talked about insulin pumps for children with diabetes, the heart felt statements I made about Campbell`s inability to fund insulin pumps for poor kids on the radio, and you know what, the BC Liberals relented, and in typical Campbell fashion he announced he was going to fund the pumps for poor families with a photo-op, I didn`t care about the photo-op as long as young kids could live a normal life, I felt the weekly embarrassment I threw at Gordon Campbell worked, but as usual with Gordon Campbell the devil was in the details for it turns out that although he was going to fund poor families who qualified financially he set the limit on yearly funding at $2 million dollars, or about 200 kids, well friends there are over a thousand families with small children with the bad type of diabetes who qualify financially, just so we are all clear the serious type of diabetes these kids need many shots per day, they need to be tested multiple times per day and for 3 year olds, 6,7, 10 year old children their lives are on hold, these kids without an automatic pump can`t attend parties,field trips, sleep overs at friends, but with an insulin pump that costs about $10,000 dollars they can be regulated by this device and children can have their childhood back, and here as I gaze intently at nothing another fire rages, $600 million for a retractable roof and the insulin pump program is capped at $2 million per year or roughly 200 kids, but what about the other 1000 poor children waiting for insulin pumps, for with $20 million dollars all the poor children can have pumps, other provinces fund these pumps but not here in BC, I have heard there are so many loop-holes designed to deny families or only partially fund them, there is a 40,000 $ dollar cut-off for family income, well friends in this town,this province $40,000 for a family income is the poverty level.
But I ask you this, what do you say to the 1000 kids on the waiting list? next year? Maybe you will be chosen next year Billy, be patient Sally, you know childhood comes around but once, it`s short,fleeting, once kids reach a certain age they can test and inject themselves, how long is a year in a life of a child, with the massive spike in diabetes the Gordon Campbell $2 million per year program will never catch up or reduce the waiting lists, you know diet is important, poor families eat poorer quality food so the problem gets exasperated with the poor, Pepsi,coca cola, McDonalds, the big advertisers are as guilty as anyone for causing the spike in diabetes, but what I really wanted to talk about is respect, how can anyone fund that retractable roof for $600 million dollars while only $2 million per year for insulin pumps, what dis-respect to those families, yet this Government, this cowardly gutless Gordon Campbell who dis-respected us by lying about selling BC Rail, he dis-respected 9000 female workers when he tore up a legally negotiated contract and fired all of them.
Dis-respect for Wild Salmon, Campbell has lied and gored everyone`s ox, and for those who tried to speak up were gagged with an illegal law, a gag law that was approved by an ex- judge who knew it was illegal,that judge being Wally Oppal, the same Wally Oppal who Gordon Campbell wants to be the chief judge in BC, that of course is illegal,we have no Chief judge in BC right now because Gordon Campbell is working on breaking that law as well, mark my words,Wally Oppal by hook or by crook will be appointed to that position, a slap in the face of the judiciary,Gordon Campbell never met a law he wouldn`t break, when the new Government takes over I fully intend to lobby to have illegal contracts that are financially harmful to the public to be torn-up,that goes for all the power buying agreements,we don`t have to honour contracts based on lies, what`s good for the BC Liberals is good for the NDP.
The 2009 election was an insult to every BC voter, the election was an illegal fraud, the deficit, the HST, the cuts, the "Stealing of gaming grants" Gordon Campbell has no mandate to steal from us, recall, whatever it takes, the Cambie merchants were dis-respcted,they were told lies, no compensation, Susan Heyes and Cameron Ward, courageous warriors, yet I have heard many times on the radio and TV that Susan Heyes "Won $600,000 Dollars", that offends me,CKNW portray Susan Heyes law suit as a win, like a lottery win, Michael Smyth especially called the law suit "A Win" friends,Susan Heyes never "won" anything,the case isn`t over and those are her financial losses, there is no win, being made whole isn`t a windfall, it`s justice, Rich Coleman, Mike De Jong, Kevin Falcon,George Abbot, Shirley Bond, Pat Krueger, Wally Oppal, everyone of those habitual liars have dis-respected us, Wally Oppal especially, a man who knows the law, an ex-judge who when bringing in the gag law....You know what Wally Oppal said about the Gag Law?....Wally said.."I hoisted the Gag law up a flag pole to see how it would fly" Snip....
Can you imagine, an ex- judge bringing in laws he knows are illegal, a cowardly man you are Wally Oppal, you gave away any respect you had at the behest of Gordon Campbell, you are not worthy Wally Oppal, in fact any credentials you have should be torn up, $ 100 million dollars for rental of Whistler for the Olympics, $35 million for the owners of GM place for Olympic events, every crown corporation funneling money to Vanoc, Campbell has stated that mining companies who had leases in the Flathead valley "will be compensated" yet the Cambie merchants, flight schools, heli-skiing companies, none of these entities will get a dime from the Province, there are two sets of rules with Gordon Campbell, those who pay the BC Liberal party and those who don`t. A corrupt political party, Richard Nixon went down for a few minutes of tape while Gordon Campbell has ordered the destruction of thousands of documents!
Alexandra Morten has been dis-respected,injured workers have been left with nothing, seniors, my god the betrayal against seniors is beyond compare, Kam Lee wrote about his father in law, his wife`s father being treated with such dis-respect, I could feel his pain,it`s real and will never go away, Pete Piercey was dis-respected and robbed by the Campbell government, thousands of seniors have been left to die waiting, this year Gordon Campbell jacked up their care rates, seniors in these homes are now left with like $100 per month out of their pensions, and that Lying bastard Kevin Falcon was smiling and tee heeing when he announced the increases, I am not a violent person but I have heard people saying they wish Gordon Campbell and his cabinet ministers would drop dead, I could care less if the entire Campbell government all perished in a plane accident or died of food poisoning, the pain and suffering Gordon Campbell has inflicted upon the masses, the pain and suffering Gordon Campbell and his ministers have refused to alleviate, it`s a matter of respect, how many tears, how many Kam Lee`s, how many Grant G`s, how many young children with diabetes have to be dis-respected, what will it take for even one member of this government to stand up for those who can`t stand up on their own, how many seniors have to sit in soiled under garments for days, eat unhealthy foods, how many surgeries have to cancelled, how many people have to fly planes into buildings, how many more suicide notes will it take, it`s a matter of respect, how many of you would respect a sacrificial Martyr?
