More interesting developments, Blair Leckstrom has quit the B.C. Liberals to try and save his own skin. According to our good friend Seth B.C. Hydro has started selling IPP power and is getting paid 1/2 cent per kilowatt hour but we are paying the IPP over 12 cents a kilowatt hour, you can do the math, it`s simple, we our losing millions on the sale of this IPP power!
Here is the great knowledgeable comment from Seth .......From the Hook at The Tyee.....
Half cent A KWH
Leckstrom`s BC Hydro was selling Pirate Power`s electricity today on the Columbia grid for-Wait for this-Less than a Half Cent A KWH peak.
Off peak He`d be paying the grid to take.
Remember he is buying the power at 12.6 cents a KWH.
I`d suggest that is the real reason he resigned
Thanks for that comment Seth, contact G West, Seth, I would like you to do a guest post on my site, your knowledge is unmatched, G West can let you know how to contact me.
And Blair Leckstrom today on the Christy Clark show between 1:30pm and 2:00pm said some very revealing things, Blair said.....
"If I knew what I know today about the HST I would not have voted for it 10 months ago"
And this......Car dealers in my region will be decimated by the HST, point of sale rebates will be removed on car purchases.....
But the most revealing thing Blair Leckstrom said was .........A caller called in and said that the Federal Government must be making a fortune on the HST to offer B.C. a $1.6 billion dollar one time bribe.......To which Blair Leckstrom responded......
"I won`t cast any blame on the Federal Government, it was the B.C. Liberals who ASKED OTTAWA FOR THE HST" snip.
So much for the Colin Hansen and Gordon Habitual Liar Campbell spin about how the Federal Government wanted the tax change, according to Blair Leckstrom immediately after the election Gordon Campbell advised the finance department to go get some money from Ottawa!
I am glad that Leckstrom has quit Campbell but it`s a little too late for that, the main reason Leckstrom quit was he knew he was dead with a "Recall in the Fall" campaign.......
That and the fact that the first initial IPP power sales from BC Hydro are draining millions from the Province, Leckstrom has run for the hills, I guess we know why the PAB department hang on the shoulder of speaking cabinet ministers, to keep them from putting their feet in their mouth and accidentally exposing the truth!
The Game is over Gordon Campbell, your energy minister has spilled the beans, you stole an election and immediately set out to screw every BCer for eternity, your pathetic argument that Ottawa pursued B.C. to harmonize when the fact of the matter that you Gordon Campbell wanted money to try and hide your massive $3.7 billion dollar deficit, you sold us out Campbell, you robbed ICBC, you stole our railway, you sold our ferries, you gutted BC Hydro, ruined health care, gutted education and lined the pockets of your money donating friends.(you can hear the CKNW audio vault here) http://www.cknw.com/other/audiovault.html
Cue up Friday June 11/2010......1:00pm......fast forward to 1:30pm.....Blair is on the 1:30pm to 2:00pm segment
