My signature tally on the HST petition grows bigger and bigger everyday, local residents have put in requests to me too go to friends homes to have them sign, I have re-assured them that I will start the door to door campaign soon, but as it stands I`m still racking up big numbers of signatures at central locations.
I heard a news report about the 2010 outlook conference today in Vancouver, Colin Hansen addressed to the crowd, in his speech Colin Hansen pleaded with business owners to educate their customers on how great the HST is, it reeked of desperation, now folks, that is not MY interpretation of what Colin Hansen said, that is what the reporters said to Colin Hansen after his speech! The reporters were LAUGHING at Colin Hansen, laughing out loud and in numbers!
Can you imagine, Hansen expecting business people to pull their customers aside and tell them they are all wrong about the HST, LOL HA HA.....The laughter rang throughout the crowd, I don`t know what or who they were laughing at but I suspect the captive audience was laughing at Hansen`s suggestion and laughing at Colin Hansen himself, I just don`t picture a roofing company telling their customers that this big tax hit is all good, I don`t see funeral parlours telling grieving survivors that a $700 tax hit on 1 funeral is great, tourism, restraurants, service providers, not one of these business`s are going to defend this tax, Colin Hansen knows his party is officially dead, no Dianne Watts can save them, let me be perfectly clear, I am strongly opposed to the HST because it`s nothing but voodoo economics from paid spin doctors, it will drive a bigger underground economy, create tax cheats, reduce Government revenue and services, in fact Colin Hansen is on record as saying the HST will mean hundreds of millions of dollar in less Government revenue annually.
Which means but one thing, the B.C. Liberals will have to raise more taxes on the public to make up for the $2 billion dollar tax increase on the consumer, does that make sense?
The fever pitch panic by the liberals can be cut with a knife it`s so thick, but I`m glad the B.C. Liar party is bringing in this tax, this betrayal, deception, scam, with Canwest Global and the big media pulling for Campbell it would have been hard to unseat them, but with the HST it`s now not a matter of if they will be removed as a political party but when, so I can live with the HST knowing that the Liberals are gone, tax policy can be changed, exemptions can be given back and new taxes put on wealthy corporations, so the NDP can mitigate the tax and lobby to get rid of it all together.
Also friends, Donna Barnett of Caribou Chilcoltin is in hiding in her own riding, Don McCrae is a no show in the Comox valley, and there are several resignations coming from the B.C. Liberals before the fall session, the party has a strong morbid overtone, the big red machine has blown a gasket, leaking oil, the machine is parked on the side road spewing smoke, so that my friends is my HST consolation prize.
There was more disgusting news, there was announced cuts to the HEU today, the cuts are coming from the hospital instrument sterilization department, like I said, Kevin Falcon and Gordon Campbell have blood on their hands, recently in the news there were stories about sterilization problems with hospital surgical instruments, thousands in Victoria are having to get tested for Hep C and other blood borne diseases, a germ filled Nanaimo hospital has led to at least 6 direct deaths, a lack of cleaning hours from the service provider, now Kevin Falcon is cutting the instrument sterilization department, Falcon claims that surgeries are being reduced so those instrument cleaners aren`t required, another potentially life risking move by the lying Campbell Government!
These cuts will continue all year and next, as I reported in my last story, Government revenues are down over $1 billion dollars from budget projections, the Campbell Government is prepared to let BCers suffer and risk more lives, all to find more money for the retractable roof, the way over budget SFPR (south Fraser perimeter road) and of course, hundreds of millions in power buying losses.
I don`t know what kind of blood oath these B.C. Liberals have signed, these MLAs will stand by and watch Falcon and Campbell risk their constituent`s live`s.....Just another day, another Friday document dump day. So Campbell will be permitted by Donna Barnett, Don mcCrae, Ida Chong, and others to dismantle our Province, Campbell will be permitted to destroy and take live`s, but "recall in the Fall" will spell the end of them forever, looks like Carole James will become premier after all, you see folks, we don`t need to recruit canvassers for recall, we have over 6000 canvassers ready to go, and when Campbell and Hansen ignore the HST initiative it will so infuriate the electorate that recall will be a for sure thing, you see, there are enough NDP voters alone in a dozen ridings for recall to be successful, but there will also be thousands of ex B.C. Liberals voters prepared to sign a recall campaign, I have asked people who signed my petition if they would be prepared to sign a "Recall in the Fall" petition, everyone of them have said, ABSOLUTELY....
There was one more phony announcement today, it looks like even the federal Conservatives are desperate, Stockwell Day announced....
The Federal Government is prepared to "Advance next years gas revenue to municipalities so they can try and beat the deadline for stimulus spending" snip......So that was the big announcement from Stockwell Day, in order to juice the economy now, cities can borrow against their future revenue, what a ridiculous announcement, and let me explain why Stockwell`s announcement was nothing but phony politics, all projects must be approved, projects take time to be approved, projects must be 100% completed by March 31/2011....11 months from now, too late Stockwell day! Mr. Stockwell Day, if you are so concerned, extend the stimulus timeline another year into 2012.....Believe me Stockwell Day, the B.C. economy will tank and stumble from a combination of people shopping in Alberta on one side, trips to the US in the south where the masses are, a booming underground economy, in fact local restaurants have told me off the record that cash is king and bill books can thin out!
Adios Colin Hansen, Donna Barnett, Don McCrae, Ida Chong, Murray Coell, Gordon Campbell, Margaret McDiarmid, Pat Pimm, Bill Bennett, Ron Cantelon, Shirley Bond, Pat Bell......There will be more!
