Kevin Falcon to continue Selling Your Future Hope, BC Hydro Set to Rape Your Wallet

The master of the game of Con, three card monty, now you see it now you don`t, the magician and his sidekick, a silver haired wizard and his lovely assistant.....OK, a silver haired lying bastard and the ugliest man in politics...

These financial gurus have been lying, spinning, and confusing the public as to  their economic prowess, what a sad joke, the 4 largest deficits in BC history were brought in by Gordon Campbell....The media, the Baldreydastardly and Vaughn the pawn Palmer and Billy lie my face off Good have talked over and over again about the dark 90s...

In fact friends the 90s weren`t dark, they were well lit and the people of this Province could afford to turn their lights on, in case you haven`t heard, John Horgan informed me yesterday that BC Hydro is applying to the BCUC to increase rates by a staggering 30% plus over three years.....Glen Clark and the NDP froze residential rates in the 90s while Gordon Campbell and Kevin Falcon have increased power costs by leaps and bounds....Recently CD Howe institute noted the Kevin Falcon`s BC Liberal Government raised BC Hydro rates by 100% between 2006 and 2010.....And that`s not enough, that`s not near enough to pay the lucrative criminal contracts Campbell, Abbott, Falcon signed...

You would think that will all these massive price spikes Falcon ordered BC Hydro to levy on the public that the profit from BC Hydro would be over filling Government coffers, you would be wrong, the money, the increases, theses latest increases are to raise money for Plutonic Power(General Electric)..Finavera wind power(Accenture)..Money for Paul Taylor`s private power buddies, ......

Let me give a quick explaination to the few uninformed, at a time when the world is in a recession, Gordon Campbell and Kevin Falcon, George Abbott through the BC Liberal cabinet .......Made a law....That`s right folks a law, a law forbidding BC Hydro from developing any new power sources, the Campbell law states in no uncertain terms that BC Hydro is prohibited from creating new power generation sources, BC Hydro was limited to upgrading existing facilities, at the same time.....

Kevin Falcon and George Abbott through cabinet demanded by law the BC Hydro MUST buy power from private producers on our own BC Rivers and streams for 3 to ten times the value of the power!.....

That`s right folks, Kevin Falcon, George Abbott, Christy Clark all led by their hero Gordon Campbell by law prevented BC Hydro from producing any new power and at the same time demanded by law that BC Hydro buy all the power produced from IPPs.....Forget that BC Hydro can borrow money at Government rates, forget that BC Hydro under W.A.C. Bennett was and is the best Dam and Hydro builder in the world with in-house specialists....Forget about all that because......

Because Paul Taylor buddies(Gordon Campbell`s chief-of-staff) ...Plutonic power, General electric, Finavera, and many many more were told in not so many words that if....

You give money to the BC Liberal party not only will you be granted 40 year water leases but we, the Gordon Campbell/Kevin Falcon Government will enshrine in law to buy your power for 35 years at $120 dollars to $180 dollars .......In other words friends, Kevin Falcon guaranteed a big time cash flow to these private companies and that cash my friends is coming out of your pockets.

What their hero Gordon Campbell did was economically crush BC Hydro, crush the rate payer....CD Howe has already reported how BC Hydro rates have double under Falcon, under George Abbott, under Gordon Campbell, the last few years alone BC Hydro rates have doubled and today, BC Hydro needs to raise rates by 30% more just to keep up with the payments to private power companies....


There is a North America glut of hydro electric power, especially on the west coast, the current spot market for Hydro electric is about 35$ per unit.....that price has been trending downward yet Gordon campbell, George Abbott, Kevin Falcon, Christy Clark, all BC Liberals have guaranteed that you the rate payer of British Columbia  will pay private companies 5 to 8 times the current rate.....Therefore BC Hydro is forced to keep raising and raising rates from residential customers to pay Plutonic power and others....

 I mean this is so sick, BCers might as well send the cheque directly to Plutonic power and avoid the middleman....


Rafe Mair, Damian Gillis, Kootcoot Myself and a few other have been ringing the fire bell to no avail, Kevin Falcon Christy Clark, George Abbott, Gordon Campbell, they all believe in taking as much of your money and funneling it to their rich friends, do any of you believe that Falcon, Abbott with their $200 thousand dollar a year stipends worry about their hydro bill.....Does anyone think that Christy Clark with her $700 thousand dollar per year radio gig (3 and a half hours a day)....Christy Clark with her multi million dollar divorce settlement plus lucrative child support, now she wants to max out her Government pension and carry on in promoting and endorsing Gordon Campbell`s ideology, does anyone think these people care one bit about bankrupting BC Hydro and the ratepayer, do you think they care about the HST, they will write it all off, only you poor voting saps pay, Christy Clark won`t be paying it!

The media, cknw, the Vancouver Sun, these outfits are criminal organizations, they omit news, they fail to report, they spin.they lie, they have no ethics, Fazil Mihlar who runs the editorial board at the Vancouver sun is the former head and still honored member of the Fraser institute, as for cknw, Bill Good has been on his knees sucking and slurping and promoting Gordon Campbell, Kevin Falcon and George Abbott, and Christy Clark`s agenda for years!

Yea I hear Bill Good everday whining about the internet news, your time is up old man!.....Today the Vancouver sun reported on BC Hydro raising rates another 10% per year for the next three years......And what a lame article it was, the story, fiction at best...

The Vancouver Sun is doing again what they have done for the last decade, close their mind, look the other way, print the story get paid by the BC Government and claim stupidity, that folks is what cknw and the Vancouver sun have done for the last decade!

First off, the Vancouver sun reports that the average hydro bill in BC is a mere 70$ dollars per month....The increase BC Hydro wants this year will take that rate up to 77$ per month,....10% more would be 85$ per month...and the final 10% bring that monthly bill to $94 dollars per month.....Thats the entire story folks...

Actually, what I reported is more than the entire story.....I don`t normally do this but I have cut n pasted the entire article from the Vancouver Sun, you will be amazed with its indepth coverage, how they explain that single detatched homes hydro bills are triple that $70 per month amount, you will be stunned how the Vancouver Sun and their kick-ass investigative journalists dug deep for the reasons for the increases, you will see how a first class top-notch newspaper spends big dollars and turns over every rock to get to the truth....Well there was the build up friends here is the Straight Goods from the Vancouver Sun(cut n pasted)
__________________________________________________________________________________________

BC Hydro is proposing rate increases of about 10 per cent in each of the next three years.
That would add about $7 dollars a month to the average home's hydro bill each year, totalling $21 by 2014

_________________________________________________________________________________________
There it is folks....There was the  entire Vancouver Sun story, gee whiz, I wonder if they are going to come after me for copyright infringement.....A whole 30 words!

(updated)...The Vancouver Sun and BC Government after reading my story have lengthened the Vancouver Sun story/article and added too it, it is still very vague  with no details, but just think of the increase for Hydro bills, even the smallest apartment will see a $21 dollar per month increase under the BC Liberals....how much is the low-income HST credit?....If you received the maimum, $224 dollars per year HST low-income credit...BC Hydro increase on the smallest apartment  $21 dollars X 12 months = $234 dollars.......So much for that credit!

The media hasn`t quit yet, thet will play their games to the bitter end, Falcon, Abbott, Clark, Bill Good, Vancouver Sun....Enemies of the people.....We have issues to expose, we have a Falcon to declaw, we have an Abbott who needs his neck tightened to keep his head from bobbling, we have a Christy Clark whose balls need to be snipped!, we have BC Liberal crimes to bring to the public`s attention!

I'm sure tired of this BC Hydro conservation 2 tier rate BS. Why is this not based on the house hold size, we are 5 people electrically heated what a load of crap this is...but nobody talks or gives a damn about this rip-off.

Why not a two tier system on natural gas...what a fricken uproar that would make.

What's the NDP viewpoint on this I wonder...like most other things we'll probably never know.

John Horgan talks about Hydro rates everyday...The media won`t report it..

Gordon Campbell and Christy Clucking Clark will sell BC out to the lowest bidder as long as money goes under the table to the BC Liberal party!

Hugh said...

BC Hydro is prohibited from building new power plants, except Site C, if it ever goes through.

The Clean Energy Act forces BC Hydro to have a lot more power in BC than we need for domestic use. See Sec. 6:

Undo the law. Kick out the bastards and undo their freakin' law.

Surely the BCUC won't grant BC Hydro these increases after such huge increases in the past, oh I forgot the Liberal Crime Family denutted them just like every other outfit that is supposed to watch out for the public intrest. I'm actually getting sick to my stomach, is there no letting up from these people? Is there no depth to how low these Liberals can sink? Everyday there is something revealed as to how they have screwed this Province and the people in it well into the foreseeable future and perhaps forever, but never a peep from the MSM

Evil Eye said...

When the media get into bed with government, its time to say adiĆ³s! The Vancouver Sun is complicit with the BC Liberals for the financial rape of this province.

The pure evil displayed by the Liberals and their concubines is beyond description.

To be blunt - do not give to charities and let the poor lead the revolution. There is nothing surer of a successful rebellion when those who revolt are hungry.

The next government had better RIP up these contracts even if it takes
legal battles in court.
Falcon was the hitman in the Campbell crime and all the corporate money is now being pushed his way for leadership of this criminal organization,
and I have lots to say about Kevin in future comments.

Will Carole James rescind the law of no new BC Hydro projects? If the media will not listen the NDP should organize townhalls around the province and support those who already have.
In my opinion, Capmbell should be charged with treason for what he has done to BC Hydro and the BC media, and especially Bill Buffoon, should be awarded with the Goebbels trophy for media propaganda and full on bullshit.
How do these Mutts sleep at night?

Sorry if this comment is too obvious. But I wonder about some of the actions that have taken place following GC's visit - on tax dollars - to the Bilderburg conference. He seems to be working through a checklist quickly on his way to so called retirement.

Is there not some organization documentary maker that can report this obvious treason?

What about the huge hydro project, on Bute Inlet? Please, read, Rafe Mair's, the Common Sense Canadian. This is another Campbell outrage. Read, the Blog Borg Collective, and see the proof, of who actually, clinched the deal of, Campbell's corrupt sale of the BCR. Get a barf bucket and hold your nose, while you do so. Remember, Campbell did say, he would be around for some months. He also said, he would continue on with his work. And indeed he has, and, it's all dirty work as usual. Campbell is too full of, hate, spite, malice and is far too vindictive to just quit. AGAIN, the First Nations People, are in another battle with Campbell, regarding the Enbridge pipeline, over their, rivers, streams and lands. And of course, they don't want China's dirty oil tankers, in the coastal seas. Harper and Campbell still want to drill gas and oil wells, off the BC coast. The 6.6 earthquake in the Queen Charlotte's, doesn't tell the two dictators anything. Campbell has a lot of dirty work to do, before he's gone. If we don't watch our backs, there will be knives stuck in them. Campbell is in the lowest form, of the human species. He is the most, truly ugly, evil person, I have ever heard of. Teachers say, our BC children are so hungry, they can't even do their lessons. And, Ida Chong ate her way through, $6,000 for her fine dining. Campbell, gave his useless self a, 53% wage hike. His henchmen a, 27% wage hike. De Jong in the running, to replace Campbell, that blew me away. His vile miscarriage of justice and the cover up of, Campbell's corrupt sale of the BCR, is revolting. The BC ministers and the mla's, all supported, the monster Campbell, right to the hilt. Many of the BC people, wanted to have multiple recalls done, to bring down this, gross Liberal government, that we so despise. We will never forget, nor forgive their treachery, against the children and the people of BC.

Craig James and Campbell sending the RCMP, to investigate an elderly lady in her eighties. She innocently signed the HST petition twice. She was so terrorized, she said, she would never sign anything to do with this government, ever again. That must have been, Campbell and James' finest hour. James sniveled about getting, nasty e-mails. When he sold his soul to Campbell, and did his dirty work for him, yes, I can imagine people were angry, goes with the territory, of working for Campbell. If push comes to shove. Campbell will cut James' throat, just as he did, Basi and Virks. The RCMP refuse to do a, further investigation of, Campbell's corrupt sale of the BCR. No doubt, they would refuse to investigate the, sea to sky highway scam. But willingly, frightened the elderly and others, so they wouldn't sign the recall. Shame on the RCMP for doing Campbell and James' hit list. Then, they wonder why, the BC people don't even want the RCMP as an icon for Canada. They were supposed to have made changes for the better. However, nothing has changed.

Part of a response I received from Kevin Falcon's office when I complained about a long wait for surgery:

"A patient’s priority for surgery is determined by the surgeon. Patients requiring immediate attention receive it. If you feel that your condition has deteriorated or warrants reassessment, I encourage you to bring your specific concerns to the attention of your surgeon. Additionally, your family physician may refer you to a surgeon with a shorter wait time, even if the surgeon is not in your geographic area. You may also enquire as to whether your surgeon has a cancellation list, and if you are available on short notice you may request to be added to this list."

This from the office of a guy who wants to be premier. Gin the system, and you'll get your surgery sooner. Really!!

BTW surgery now done successfully. And I didn't receive any reply from my MLA, one Rich Coleman, when he was sent a copy of my complaint.

Hugh said...

In the Sun article, John Horgan was quoted saying ratepayers will have to pay for Liberal energy policy for at least 3 years. Yes, IPP contracts are for up to 30 years, or more. Forrest Kerr IPP is for 60 years.

Note what Cobb says about govt helping BC Hydro to mitigate rate increases. Just means less money to govt. Public still gets scr**ed.

Awesome piece as usual Brian, though sometimes I think we should just work together and I could be your proofreader for spelling and grammar, cuz I can do that - but you produce too much prose and it's all I can do to produce my sporadic and sometimes very small amount of stuff). But even with the spelling errors it is clear what you are saying and the logic and facts are always accurate, which is more important than mere spelling - honesty is more important than "manners."

Campbell's destruction of Bute Inlet, and the theft of our rivers...Is one good reason, the BC people wanted enough recalls, done altogether, to totally get rid of the BC Liberal government. We realize the petition, is for the HST. However, as we said, to leave the Liberal party in office, means the destruction of BC. Campbell has more destruction planned. Campbell should be tried for treason, for what he has done to this province and the people in it. The BC Liberal party is, the most evil, corrupt government, in Canadian history. There is more evil coming, from the candidates running to replace Campbell. De Jong, who did the worst miscarriage of justice, I have ever heard of. He covered up, Campbell's corrupt sale of the BCR. Ripped off the BC citizens tax dollars, and forced us to pay for, Campbell'a evil crime of theft. As long as this rotten, BC Liberal party is in office, BC is not safe.

We've gotta pay so BC Hydro can honour those multi-decade contracts for Rape of the River power in order to sell the power at a discount to run hair dryers in Arizona after all...........

So when you see the Canucks play the Coyotes in the Coyote building, look at the people in the stands (if there are any - after all this is the team the NHL (and the municipality of Mesa or is it Glendale?) has to pay to stay) look at the folks' hairdos and remember we're paying for them.

The BC Liberal Party has come up with a surefire formula to fleece as many of us as they can with the hope that we peons are too stupid to figure it out. A couple of years back they ordered ICBC to raise their rates on the optional side of our auto insurance, which yielded a tidy sum.

No doubt, they instructed BC Hydro to implement the two-tier system to screw more of us over. I have yet to encounter anyone who lives in a house that has been able to stay in the lower tier eventhough Bob Elton, the CEO of BC Hydro at the time, stated emphatically on the radio that the average household would not be impacted. We have done all the energy efficient upgrades to our house that were suggested by an expert, and we don't even come close.

So now we are being told that the average householder will be facing an increase of $7.00 per month. I'm sure as hell not buying it. I expect that the impact to my household will probably double that. And to make matters worse, if you read Rafe Mair's article on the Common Sense Canadian, you will find that odds are that the BC Liberal Party is doing to BC Hydro what they did to BC Rail.

All is far from well in Lotusland.
