goods and services are going up, and now, now Keith Baldrey has resorted to LIES, spin, and fairy tales, Gordon Campbell`s number 1 media bullshitter has resorted to writing Lies., a sign of pure panic, what else could drive a seasoned writer to put lies down on paper?
Colin Hansen has turned into a laughing stock of Canadian politics, the average funeral is about $10,000.oo dollars, so the cost to grieving loved one`s on a Modest funeral with the HST is an extra $700 dollars, and Colin Hansen used his hilarious example that when the funeral parlour buys a new carpet they will get the PST back as a inflow credit so the funeral hall should be able to lower the cost of a funeral, friends that is ridiculous, how often do they replace their carpet, every 10 years? the Habitual liar Colin Hansen doesn`t even have enough class to come out and say hey, it`s going to cost a lot more, tough luck!, no, Colin Hansen is like a child lying about eating all the doughnuts with their face covered with powdered sugar, Colin Hansen has turned into a complete fool.
Who hasn`t heard the ads, ads from roofing companies, renovation companies, every other business is advertising to the public warning them to buy and purchase before you get hammered by the HST and yet Colin Hansen the lying fool sticks to his comic book script that no one in the Province believes, even the 10% of BCers who don`t care about the HST know that Colin Hansen is full of bullshit!
But today friends, the spin doctor, the water carrier, the apologist, Keith Baldrey has stepped up the BS and is making up stories hoping he can turn Gordon Campbell`s fortune around, well Mr. baldrey your piece of garbage column not only won`t fool anyone but it now has people, real media, bloggers, people with brains laughing at you, I personally suggest you pull your story in the Burnaby now, retract the lies and start over!
Look folks, the word lies is a strong word, I wouldn`t use unless I was confident that I am correct, here is what Keith Baldrey has stated in his latest Burnaby Now story.
"But I question whether the NDP really wants the HST to disappear. Getting rid of the tax would mean B.C. would have to send Ottawa a cheque for more than $2 billion as a repayment for money the feds will have already sent the province's way as an incentive to implement the HST."snip
That`s what Keith Baldrey said, let`s examine that statement, first off Mr. Baldrey when did the HST bribe from Ottawa to BC go from $1.6 billion dollars to over $2 billion dollars? You have over stated the amount by a country mile Baldrey, "over $2 billion dollars" ? How much more? You have added over 33% to the bribe number, and here is another fact Baldrey, Gordon Campbell has only taken $250 million dollars of the bribe money so far, if the money is so necessary why hasn`t Campbell taken it all and put it towards the massive BC Liberal deficit? Why indeed, BC will have to pay tens of millions in interest by delaying taking the money, and if Campbell doesn`t take the money until year 2 of of his term there will be hardly any money to be paid back!
But the main theme of Keith Baldrey`s story is this......Keith Baldrey states (spins) that the HST revolt isn`t about people having to pay $700 dollars extra on a funeral or hundreds of extra dollars on a bike, not about BC business along the Alberta border going bankrupt, not about amateur sports getting slammed with the HST , or hundreds of dollars in costs to season tickets, not about the fact that everything is going up, Keith Baldrey states the HST petition is about people just being angry at Government.
Well Mr. Baldrey your are only a teeny weeny bit right, people are angry but, People are angry over Gordon Campbell and Colin Hansen holding BCers upside down by their ankles and shaking every last penny out of their pockets, listen up Baldrey, most BCers don`t have a wife like you have with a cushy well paid job working for Gordon Campbell, most BCers don`t make the money you do spinning fibs on Global TV everyday, it`s about anger but the anger is over money, nothing else Baldrey, MONEY....So get your head out of the sand and call it what it is and stop spinning like a top! (read Keith Baldrey`s pathetic story here, disregard his lies, you can see BC Liberal fear jumping off the pages) http://www2.canada.com/burnabynow/news/community/story.html?id=fc95e9eb-879a-4287-8df9-c1701187208c
Another theme about the HST that Colin Hansen keeps dragging out is this, Colin Hansen states that the HST will help BC forestry, well, Gordon Campbell since coming to office over 60 mills in BC have closed, over 40,000 forestry jobs caput, yea, forestry needs help, let me give you a little advice Campbell, listen up Hansen, if you want to help forestry, help forestry, but you don`t have to screw over the entire Province to help 1 sector, you gave massive subsidies to the big banks, massive subsidies to oil n gas..The mining industry is making money hand over fist, all those big profitable businesses don`t need the HST and they won`t add 1 job because of the HST...You can give a subsidy to forestry, if the BC economy and BC Government is flat on it`s back broke do what you did in your first term, raise the PST to 7.5%.....Direct some of that revenue towards Forestry, that`s right folks, perhaps you don`t remember but Gordon Campbell raised the PST to 7.5 % in his first term. Then he made a big deal and photo-op about lowering the PST from 7.5% to 7%....Well Campbell, yea, some photo-op, expecting BCers to be grateful for having a rock removed removed from the inside of their shoe, a rock that Gordon Campbell put there in the first place!
And here is some food for thought on Gordon Campbell`s pathetic claim that the HST will help BC Forestry....Well remember that soft-wood lumber agreement, I guarantee that any incentive that BC Forestry receives,just like when stumpage rates were lowered and other incentives were given to BC forestry the Americans consider it an unfair advantage and under the soft-wood lumber agreement the Americans will add a tariff on our US bound lumber exports, so on goes the saga of lies and deception from Gordon Campbell, and you Mr. Baldrey have become even a bigger laughing stock amongst "real journalists"!
