The Blonde Bomber Laila Yuile Hits a Homerun into Outer Space

Sorry folks, I will have a new post up later in the day but in the meantime I need to give praise where praise is due.

Last week when Laila sent us her story about  "Shadow tolls" on the Sea to Sky highway, in a concentrated  effort we all promoted her story on our own sites, not to mention Ross K , myself , Gary E and many others sent Laila`s story to everyone, I sent it to all the media and to my friends in the NDP....................

And last night after arriving home from 3 days in the big smoke, (a little bleary eyed) I was listnening to radio news while catching up on messages,emails and more love letters from my super fans ......

Anyway, the background noise of cknw caused my ears to vibrate, what was that I heard, Chris Delaney on the news, on cknw and the story was about Gordon Campbell hiding(not divulging) shadow tolls from the public and then there it was....

Attribution for busting this story was given to our good friend Laila Yuile, on air, her named mentioned more than once and on more than one new broadcast,(!2:00 am and 12:30 am news, probably more) .......

The ministry of Finance is now in the ackward position of not only explaining these tolls on the Sea to Sky highway and the Kelowna floating bridge but explaining why the public have been left in the dark...

Congratulations Mz Blonde Bomber Laila Yuile, and boy oh boy friends, the Campbell crime family may be able to explain or justify these tolls but the Government has no credibility and.....

And when the fine folks in Maple Ridge and the Fraser Valley find out that they along with all taxpayers are paying shadow tolls for the creme de la creme to shish and slide and soak in hot tubs at Whistler,  no tolls for the jet set cruising the sea to sky but full blown $2000 dollars plus a year tolls for working stiffs to have the honour of working...

That is the story folks, not who isn`t paying tolls but who is paying tolls, Working Class people!

It`s a good thing I don`t have any jealousy bones in my body, Laila Yuile did some great work, many bloggers are doing great work, each and everyone of us keep raising the bar, high quality civilized blogs, internet news, voices outside the main stream cookie cutter news, we are a vibrant community live with  passionate, dedicated journalists, accredited or not, Robin Mathews, Ross K, Kootcoot, Gary E, Ian Reid, Shreck, BC Mary, Tieleman, and so many others,.......

Thanks for raising the bar again  Laila Yuile, I can now walk under it but I intend to leap over in time.

Lastly, there is no competition among us, we all have different styles, all us bloggers have mental images of our contributers, like the old radio plays,(which I still listen too)....The voices and the words put images in our minds, everyone`s mental image is different, you fine folk who contribute and vent in your comments, I can see you and what a fine looking group you are....

Meanwhile, watch out for the Blonde Bomber, she`s on a roll......Too hot to touch...SZZZZiiizzlling!!!
