All of Gordon Campbell`s Friends are Cashing in on the HST

John Les has been given the job of selling the HST and he will be paid an extra $15 thousand dollars on top of his $100K plus MLA salary.....The B.C. Government has already spent over $50 million dollars on advertising the HST and another $100 million dollars has been budgeted to be spent on propaganda advertising leading into the referendum next September....

It appears on the surface that Global/cknw/ and our big daily are not interested in pressing for the referendum to be moved up, the reason, the largesse of advertising revenue that`s on the table, not private advertising revenue but your tax dollars.

The pure gall to waste this money on advertising when charities and money for the autistic, the mentally disabled, the physically handicapped have had their budgets squeezed and squeezed.....

The question I would like to know is how much more of our money is being wasted on propaganda, it`s been revealed that there is going to be a new HST information office opening up in Prince George on November1st....

The man chosen to run this office is Tom Syer, a former deputy in the Campbell government and director of green energy policies, I haven`t seen the final tally of how many staffers will be required to run this hst propaganda office, but one should assume that this office will have to be advertised, someone will have to answer the phones, the staffing levels at a minimum will be at least 3 employees but probably more...Then there is rents, utilities, insurance, phone lines.

This office will be in Prince George, but how many more regional hst information offices will opened, from what I have been told there will be at least 6 regional hst propaganda offices opened up, added all up ......

$150 million dollars in advertising, millions more in regional hst offices, extra stipend for John Les.

All of our money being spent in the lead up to the referendum, a referendum that will fail, a referendum that will be thoroughly rejected, not only will the public vote down the hst but this referendum people will be voting against the Government, any Government would have trouble getting the people to vote for a tax but a ruling government with 19% support and their leader with a 4% approval rating you can forgetaboutit.....

So why bother with the referendum, Campbell won`t be leader by then, the referendum is only binding with Gordon Campbell`s word and we all know what that`s worth...NOTHING....And.....What Colin Hansen and Gordon Campbell aren`t telling you is.....

Even with a successful referendum, meaning the public reject the HST, the new leader of the BC Liberals(Rich Coleman) will tell us that we can`t get out of the hst until 2015...

It was interesting listening to les and Good stroking each other this am. He kept on lying, telling fantastic stories about how we will all be saved by the HST. Very wrong. I have checked many countries, states, etc that have a "value added tax". ALL of them have never received any extra benefit for the people. This is a regressive tax, giving back only to companies not from around here. By the way Les... I have some property that is farmland, under protection. Since you know the secret to get it out, maybe you can share it with us peons? Again dealing with criminals is not the best method to get the economy going. Weasel words John Les, protecting gordo " the impaler". What a waste of skin. RECALL NOW! Good, I hear your numbers are tumbling? You have earned it.

BC people have now learned, the HST radar papers, were sitting on Hansen's desk before the election. We also will not forget Harper's part regarding the HST, come Federal Election time. BC is terminally ill. The BC Liberal's are killing this province. Campbell has thieved BC blind, for his and his business buddies personal gain. His theft of the BCR, is unforgivable. Our hydro, is in a hell of a mess, it is only a matter of time, before Campbell and Hansen, have it all sold off. Watch out for, Harper, Campbell and Hansen's pollution plans for BC. Read Rafe Mair's, the Common Sense Canadian. Read the Water War Crimes. The evil in this province, will turn your stomach.

Citizen arrests and citizen courts is the only way around the whole corrupt system. We need to arrest all Lieberals in BC for the fraud they have perpetrated on the people of BC. The Queens Cowboys won't do their jobs so we need to take over from them and throw their worthless asses out of BC. Same goes for the corrupt Courts.

God I listened to John(Lubricated)Les and he is the perfect dummy for the promoting HST job.The guy is absolutely clueless.When a female caller phoned in about paying more for kids clothing and her daughter losing her job as well as not eating out at restuarants he seemed to think that she was bullshitting.Some people have big kids you fucking moron.I'm sure ir Gordo had 9 inches it would be a light snack for you.You have got to go,you milky prick.Ron M

@Istvan....I won`t advertise that bile man here...

He`s a johnny come lately in covering the "mock" trial and subsequent farce verdict and judgement..

It`s Bill Tieleman and BC Mary that did the story for years and years, the fact he is sponging now is typical of him.

He didn`t go to the court, Robin Mathews, Tieleman, and Citizen reporter 54 went to court daily...

And the fact that he and his (so-called fawning fans) claimed he was the go to guy on that case..

That is a rude,crude insult to BC Mary, Mathews and others...

Read his other story on Basi/Virk from last thursday or Friday...You will see what I mean.

Cheers

I am not a pabster Grant.Your rebuf without posting my original comment is an insult! Of course I respect Bill,Mary,Laila,Norn,Ian et/al.We are on the same side.Sorry about the [buddy]thing. Ithought maybe you would have a sense of humour.

I talked to a lot of people on the street today and most said they would not be watching Campbell tonite, he is a gangster and a liar and they would most likely puke.

Bill Bennett is one of his 10 favorite most loyal BJer's and now Bennett comes out with fake complaint against Campbell, his master. This will give Campbell, becaused he "excused" Bill Bennett, a chance to 'report' about how democratic he is and Bennett and the rest if the Liberal mob listens to the people and are acting in our best interests, what crap. What a sick joke!

It wouldn't surprise me he may announce he will be extending his 4 year term to who knows, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 year terms. It seems all it takes for him to break laws is the stroke of a pen. That way he would fulfull his promise to himself and his mob TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO NEVER HAVE ANOTHER NDP GOVERNMENT IN B.C. His dictator fascism ideals, or he may save this for another $100,000. TV ad for Global, paid for by the taxpayers. Same goes for the HST Recall, with the stroke of pen he elimates the Recall law.

Fascist, criminal, dispised Campbell is only concerned with filling his own pockets and the pockets of his corporate welfare bums and completely destroying OUR beloved province.

Low life scum like Campbell will continue to destroy the province and our economy and stealing everything we own until there is nothing left and then fascist governments take all social services away, devalue our homes, lower wages more and we are finished.

Well, Here he comes, please try not to barf.

GORDON CAMPBELL, THE ONLY UNION HE DOESN'T HATE IS HIS OWN.....BILDERBERG CORPORATE MAFIA UNION.

After he does tonite's suck job, he will again go really nuts destroying our province.

RIOTS IN THE STREETS ARE ALL WE HAVE LEFT TO FIGHT BACK WITH. Yay for France, they could teach us a few things, that's for sure.

Istvan...I do have a sense of humour, so know you resort to insults in your last comment(not published)....

Sheesh, you think I would advertise you-know-who after his latest escapades?

Yea OK Istvan, call me a wingnut, you feel better now?

Grant G said...

And at least I told you why I didn`t post your comment, that was a courtesy, in case you missed that.

Cheers

Grant G said...

Istvan, I didn`t insult you, if I did could you point it out for me....

I don`t understand, AGT calls me a drunk, pill popper, delusional and a hundred other names and you wonder why I didn`t let your comment through, a comment advertising AGT?

OK, AGT`s post today on Basi/Virk was good.

I never ever said AGT couldn`t write good articles, that doesn`t excuse his bile comments and rude childish insults!

OK

istvan said...

Thanks Grant.

Grant G said...

Thanks Istvan, I too get a little worked up, not only do I have to defend against sophisticated attacks by the PAB and Spies but also that pathetic site dedicated to bug me, a site set up by....

AGT`s friend Brad(cool hand) who always comments on the Tyee, once known as Luke Skywalker, Luke redux, and Luke, now using the name COOL HAND...

If you only knew the half of what I have to defend against....!!!

Thanks for understanding and if I come across a little crass at times....

I apologize to all
