Gordon Muir Campbell, Human Failure Personafied.

An interesting development with Vander Zalm launching a constitutional challenge to B.C.s HST.....

I called it B.C.s HST for a reason, all other Provinces in Canada who chose to harmonize with Ottawa first ratified the HST in their Provincial legislative house, in other words, the Provincial Government brought forth a bill, in the house, debated the bill, debated the bill right through to committee stage.

That`s what other Provinces did, I am no lawyer but I have looked at this law, tax collection, new tax collection, new tax collection from a different Government, a ceding of our Provincial taxing authority, a surrendering of our sovereignty, the HST was not only a gutless sellout by a petty dictator, a spineless attack aimed at middle class and poor, it was more, it was Campbell admitting defeat, he has no plan, no thought, a complete failure on the social and fiscal governance of B.C. .......

A cowardice deed by Gordon Campbell, you see friends the HST is more than a bad tax, think about it, the B.C. Liberal Government led by Gordon Muir Campbell have failed on every level as a Government!

Gordon Campbell and every MLA have failed in doing the right thing, failed in business, bankrupted the Province, hurt the middle class, hurt the poor, assaulted seniors and the environment and for the most part they failed the wealthy, except for a few corrupt thefts of the public purse directed towards Gordon Campbell friends, on all ends this Liberal Government has been a complete failure!

Gordon Campbell failed with his marriage, an adulterer, an habitual adulterer, Campbell failed B.C. children, we lead the Nation again in child poverty, 8 straight years, wow, 8 years, hydro rates are going crazy, user fees, down loaded costs, tolls, wait until the Fraser valley starts paying $2000 a years in tolls for the privalege of working in Vancouver, is anybody really better off after a decade of Gordon Campbell?

I don`t think so, everything Gordon Campbell touched for the last decade has failed, even from his first term we are still paying the price, the tearing up of the HEU contract, a $100 million dollar legal bill for that crime, BC Rail corruption trial still winding its way through the court room, an illegal corrupt sale that in the long run will bring British Columbia nothing, we lose our railway for zero dollars, tax write-offs and legal fees, a complete failure by Gordon Campbell.........Gordon Campbell`s Accenture deal with BC Hydro, a deal gone sideways, no savings, in fact that little outsourcing experiment with BC Hydro will cost the Province(The taxpayer) $500 million dollars at least, .........The Convention center, $500 million dollar over budget building, nothing fancy, a big boring building that loses money and Ken Dobell with no business plan plowed forward with the convention center and proceeded to lose every second dollar!.......

German built ferries, gas guzzling tubs that vibrate, rattle, and are left sitting at the dock at most times, over priced garbage, over priced garbage that cost BCers hundreds of millions extra in import taxes, add $125 million dollars to the cost of these over-flow spare ferries, Das Zitrones(Gas guzzling German Junk)......A ruinous Wild Salmon policy, Gordon Campbell sold out wild salmon for a industry that is going the way of the dinosaur, sea lice infected, soft, mushy bland farmed alien fish, mmmm yummy....NOT!

A power selling idiot, buying Run of River hydro power at $120 MWH and sell it for $40 MWH.....We lose our shirts, crank up residential rates to subsidize private IPPs....

There isn`t one item that Gordon Campbell has succeeded on, from children, the middle class, the environment, salmon, hydro power, deficits, debt, even mining, Campbell failed, logging/Forestry has been gutted, infrastructure building has been a failure too....

The Canada line, a money loser for decades, the Sea to Sky highway, a $3.4 billion dollar boondoggle, the Golden ears bridge, another financial boondoggle, what will Gordon Campbell be remembered for? Anything at all? .......

Not only did Gordon Campbell triple our debt, sold our assets, broke laws, hurt children, hurt seniors, was bad for sustainable industry, harmed fish, gutted education, sold out health care to privateers, what legacy will Gordon Campbell have......

Has BC become a family friendly place, what about tuition fees, public education, seniors care, children in poverty, minimum wage, social safety nets, sustainable industry, the environment, taxes, hydro fees, ferry fees, parks, bear hunting...........

Gordon Campbell has no moral legacy, his legacy, the BC Liberal legacy will be of debt, theft from ICBC, theft of assets, selling of assets, BC Rail, BC Ferries, BC Hydro, a downgrading of education, assault upon seniors, destroyer of the environment, a decade of law suits from Supreme court to Supreme court, from tearing up the HEU, Gag laws, FOI releases, to illegally by fiat talking our last rights away, one man, one decrpepit little man deciding our fate, a twisted ideology that lowers our standard of living forever.

Because indeed friends a Lawyer I am not but a good reader I am.....As for the HST, these gutless,spineless BC Liberal MLAs, Mike De Jong(Not the sharpest knife).....Gordon Campbell(Petty dictator)..... Lied about our latest $3 billion dollar deficit, lied about the economy, lied about the HST, lied about his affairs with Lara Dauphinee, lies is all that Gordon Campbell has left.........

But as for the HST, Gordon Campbell refused to bring in a HST bill to the B.C. Legislature....

What Gordon Campbell and Dull Knife De Jong did was .......Not bring in a HST tax bill for debate and discussion, they brought in a PST extinguishment bill, Campbell was playing political games again, even with the Public outrage over the HST Gordon Campbell was still playing political games....Let me explain...

As an avid watcher of the Legislature when it`s in session, instead of bringing in a HST Bill they brought in a kill the PST bill, I can still hear Kevin Falcon, Shirley Bond, Pat Bell, Ian Black, Cantelon, Ida Chong....And the rest of those mindless drones saying...."The NDP by voting against the PST extinguishment bill are advocating for a 19% tax rate" SNIP...

You see friends, Gordon Campbell was deliberately sticking it to the opposition with another political game, by not bringing forward a new tax bill but an act to remove the existing PST, not only could the NDP not debate the HST but the BC Liberals were telling voters and constituents that the NDP wanted a 19% tax rate!

That is the game Gordon Campbell was playing, for 10 years Gordon Campbell has been playing games, lying, selling, stealing, plotting to hurt the Province, every tax cut, every tiny little good thing Campbell ever did was buried inside a bill of poison, vote down the poison and end up voting down a tiny tax cut .....Political Games is the only thing Campbell has been doing for too long, this time it will bite him.....

Bill Vander Zalm`s constitutional challenge will stand up to scrutiny, the HST will have to be re-done.......Stephen Harper has no spare capital, he won`t back up B.C. in court, Campbell does have a way out.......

Gordon Campbell will have to call the BC Legislature back into session this fall, bring in a tax bill, a new tax bill not an extinguishment bill, the bill will have to be debated from first reading through to Committee stage. Gordon Campbell outsmarted himself again, Campbell was attempting to get the NDP to vote against the PST extinguishment bill, the reason he did that was so he and Bill Good, Christy Clark and the other paid stooges could say....The NDP Voted for a 19% Provincial tax, that was Gordon Campbell`s ploy......Time for a Do-Over!.........There can be be no HST tax law brought in by executive fiat, office to office, and any new tax bill must be voted on by the house, after debate.

You MLAs will have an opportunity to do the right thing during the.......FALL SESSION of the BC Legislature....Surprise Surprise.......And can you imagine......A Fall Session with......

"Recall in the Fall" going on, I can`t wait, hope you can stand the heat BC Liberals!

Hi Grant,

Reading your excellent round-up of Gordo's crowning moments in BC history, I couldn't help thinking of that other crook in another century ...

Al Capone got away with robbery, corruption, gangsterism, murder ... and he always slipped safely out of reach until Income Tax evasion (I think) finally put him on the inside-looking-out of a U.S. jail.

I'm counting on the HST to get rid of Gordo and his regime. Thanks for all you've done.

It has always amazed me how this thing (I hesitate to call him a man, because a man will apologize and reverse errors) could cause so much havoc in this province and not leave physical scars on the population. Only mental ones.

What was done to him in his youth that caused him to be so callous and indifferent? Or is it just the live of money?

When he leaves politics (hopefully kicked out with shame) I will do all I can to prevent him from profiting in private because of what he did in government. That includes boycotting any company that wants to give him ANY position and protesting any government that wants to do the same.

Great post! Exactly how I feel about them, and the snakes in Ottawa too. Thanks Grant.

Grant shouldn't the ndp have brought this up in court instead of willy,what the hell is going on here ?

There's a reason my great-grandmother used to say, "never trust a Campbell. The only good Campbell is a dead Campbell."

"Grant shouldn't the ndp have brought this up in court instead of willy,what the hell is going on here ?"

Good point Anon, and that's exactly why the Recall in the Fall shouldn't be limited to the Campbell Crime Family. Leonard Krog, Opposition Critic in charge of looking the other way about Injustice and Carole "who couldn't lead a Girl Guide troop to a hot dog stand" James first.

And Grant, you are TOO NICE to Campbell regarding the Pirate Power scam with:

"buying Run of River hydro power at $120 MWH and sell it for $40 MWH....."

Though maybe they plan to sell it to us BC residents for $40 per MWH, the last quote I saw a couple weeks ago they were selling it on the Columbia Grid (their preferred export market) for more like $4-$6 per KWH - that is sheer business genious!

Apparently the LIEberals are having a super secret caucus meeting at Harrison Lake - maybe they will burn Campbell at the stake.....but the rest of them are just as guilty and too many of the NDP are "enablers." Wonder what the drones of Glow Ball, Canned Waste and CeeTeeVee will have to say about the Harrison Lake do?

Correction: (as astounding as it may seem) I actually meant to type:

they were selling it on the Columbia Grid (their preferred export market) for more like $4-$6 per MWH

My fingers unconciously resisted the insanity of the facts........

Grant, this post is the best and if it were not for you, kootcoot, Gary E and so many others who stay on top of things, even people like me who try to keep up on the B.C. Liberal mob would not know about what is really going on. Unlike Leah I do lose sleep! and worry constantly about what Campbell is doing to further destroy our B.C. and thanks to Leah and some very astute signers for putting me on to the Bilderberg group new world order. I believe that Campbell will carry on his expensive court proceedings to challenge the HST as long as he can. I also fear that he will kill the recall act and try to stop us from recall in the fall for as long as he can giving him more time to continue to do even more damage to our B.C. IMO, after ten years, he was invited to the Bilderberg yearly meeting because he has ripped us for millions/billions and now qualifies as one of the 125 richest or else why was he invited? Perhaps as a stand-in for Harper. Campbell will continue to destroy B.C. and break the people and we could easily end up like Greece, the worst is yet to come. Campbell will keep on spending and destroying until he financially ruins us all. Harper is behind everything Campbell does, they are carbon copies. I too fear what the NDP are up to, too many times they have said they didn't like a lot about several bills but signed them anyways. The fact they are silent doesn't make me think it is for any good reason. Every day I find comfort in reading your posts and knowing that you and others who come here are 'constantly digging' to keep us informed. I believe that Campbell and Harper are on the same agenda, the new world corporate dictatorship which is truly frightening...and then there is the North American Union. Harper/Iggy and Campbell/James seem to be doing the same thing. I can't thank you enough and it's time to gather the masses and demonstrate just how angry we really are and try to stop any more destruction and theft of our assets and our freedoms. This could get very dirty and dangerous but we cannot sit here and do nothing.

It is ironic that in these times with our technology for communicating with one another that there are so many people who just can't be bothered to vote. They are just to busy fiddling with their diddles or shopping on-line to pay attention to what is really happening in Canada. Those committing crimes against humanity, currently our BC Libs, and supporters are just as ignorant. What kind of country do they think they are creating? This country will be so unpleasant to reside in, looking over your shoulder day in and day out takes its' toll. Building big walls around them to keep the middle cum lower class out is not pretty. Desperate people leads to unpleasant things. How can you possibly feel like a winner If you're a Liberal?

The problem with voting, is that you have to vote for someone and when all is offered is Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dumb, & Tweedle Dumbest, on tends not to vote.

The present electoral system worked fine when regional communication relied on mule trains, steam boats & trains and the telegraph. Today communication is fast and furious and what was OK in 1900 is dreadful today.

I voted in the last election because we had a credible independent and she won.

The key for the NDP is provide credible candidates in the next election and a credible leader and so far I have not seen any evidence of it as the leader Carole James still relishes 19th century politics.

The public is hungry for democracy, not scrapes from the plate!

People aren't voting because of the criminals and poor choices and this is just the way gordo and his politcos want it!
The total collapse of democracy!
In my view!

Leah said...

Jaydee, the only reason I can see for Rockefeller to invite Campbell to the Bilderberg meeting isn't due to wealth. It's because Campbell has shown he is willing and able to tear apart a province/economy/way of life for millions - and not blink an eye. Like Harper, he's a foot soldier, useful, and a person easily controlled by the promise of wealth and power. I doubt that either one has ever wondered what will happen once all their orders have been fulfilled - and their services are no longer needed.

Not to lose sleep! I'm sure they believe they've got everything under control, and to a point they do...but there comes a day when all of their stolen wealth and useless power won't buy them so much as a crumb of bread while they're starving to death.

Our tears are those of heartbreak and loss, theirs will be the bitterest of gall and only those whose company they keep will share them. They'll finally know the definition of "emptiness," devoid of all emotion. To me, that's a fate worse than death.

Head up! Heart up! As the song says..."I'd rather die standing, than live on my knees."

Most BC citizens, are very aware of Campbell and Harper's close relationship. M.P's in the east say, Harper is a fascist, and too stubborn to work with. However, some citizens, believe Campbell is a communist. He for sure is a dictator. Who really knows, what in the hell, this mess is going to turn into. Canadian citizens say, the New World Order, will be communist. We know, Fadden, from Canadian Intelligence, is keeping a close eye on BC, and Ontario. I for one, am very happy he is. This country and, some of the provinces are a, morass of corruption. However, corruption, is a cash cow for politicians, they don't want the easy money to dry up. Corruption and greed, wins every time.
