"A way to increase efficiency and increase productivity"
Sound familiar, what happened to the HST creating jobs, what about all those HST credits Shaw can claim, hmmm?
There was a poll out yesterday from Mario Canseco, I don`t know what is going on with Angus Reid but as of late Mario Canseco doesn`t just report the numbers he`s turned into a political pundit, giving advice and commenting about potential leaders and policy, Mario has become starstruck with TV and radio interviews, never-the-less his last poll is totally bogus, according to Canseco the...
"BC Liberals are leading on Vancouver island" snip
Sorry friends, I call them the way I see them and there is no way in hell the NDP are trailing on the island, I would be just as skeptical if Mario Canseco said the NDP were leading in Abbotsford or Quilchena ridings, ...If it doesn`t make sense it isn`t true, period!
Laila Yuile has a good post up about the Surrey memorial hospital expansion, the other day Christy Clark attended a photo-op announcing the construction of the hospital expansion...That is rich, let me take you back to one month before the 2005 BC general election, Keith Baldrey and the other BC Liberal pimps attended a photo-op in Surrey, Gordon Campbell announced the emergency room expansion and...
And Gordon Campbell stated that the Hospital expansion would be finished(completely built) by the fall of 2008 and the new ambulatory tower would be complete by 2009......
Fast forward to 2009 and there was another photo-op in Surrey re-announcing the same projects that had yet to be even started, not one shovel in the ground and here we are in 2011 and we have another photo-op in Surrey announcing the construction again.....As my dear friend Laila Yuile states......
Christy didn`t make it happen, the contract was signed by the preferred builder before she was even leader, but what is even more shameful is no big media even bothered to mention that this project was originally announced in 2005 with a completion date that passed over a year ago....The MSM in this Province are corrupt bastards working to harm the public, there is no media anymore in BC except blogs, here and BC Mary`s site, Norm Farrell`s site, Koot`s Gary E`s and Ross K....And as much as it pains me to say it even AGT has been rocking the media...I don`t mean to offend anyone by leaving any good news reporting blogs out, everyone over in our blog roll are worthy of reading...
Back to the Surrey memorial hospital announcements, below is cut and pasted from the BC Liberal web site, read the story folks and you will realize how much the BC Liberals lie and re-announce everything over and over again, and like I say, the most disturbing part of this is how not one big media bothered to report what Laila and I have!

Premier Campbell Announces Surrey Outpatient Hospital Location
Surrey - Premier Gordon Campbell today announced that the Green Timbers site in Surrey will be home to the new 148,000-square foot Surrey Outpatient Hospital as part of the Province's plans to improve access to health care and ease congestion at Surrey Memorial Hospital (SMH).
"The health-care needs of the people of Surrey and the entire Fraser Valley have been a top priority for our government," said Campbell. "The Surrey Outpatient Hospital will provide more space and better facilities for day surgeries, health clinics and family medicine while freeing up space for an expanded emergency room and more acute care beds at Surrey Memorial."
The planned Surrey Outpatient Hospital will be located at a 5.8-acre site on the corner of 140th Street and the Fraser Highway, at an estimated cost of $126 million. Construction is expected to begin in 2008 with completion in 2009. The site is currently Crown Land owned by the Ministry of Agriculture and Lands and will be transferred to the Ministry of Health for approximately $1 million.
The Fraser Health Authority chose the Green Timbers location because it is less than one km from Surrey Memorial Hospital and offers easy access for patients by road and public transportation while also allowing for future opportunities for growth. The site is also cost-effective because of the availability of above-ground parking.
"The site for the new outpatient hospital is based on what is best for the residents of Surrey," said Health Minister George Abbott. "Surrey Memorial Hospital was built in 1959 to serve a population of approximately 70,000 compared to a diverse cultural population and community of over 330,000 today. Our expansion plan will serve the residents of Surrey today and in the future."
Surrey Memorial Hospital handled 154,159 outpatient visits in 2005/06. This number is expected to grow by 60 per cent by 2020. Many outpatient services are fragmented and dispersed throughout various buildings and floor levels at SMH, resulting in complicated "way-finding" and lengthy walking distances for patients. The existing facility, as it is currently configured, is not efficient for delivery of outpatient care and is unable to accommodate the growth required to meet future patient needs.
"More than half the current patient visits at Surrey Memorial are for out-patient care and that proportion is rising," said Fraser Health's interim CEO Keith Anderson. "Identifying Green Timbers as the site for the future home of the outpatient facility and primary care clinic is a major development in our plans to serve the health needs of Surrey's growing population."
Building a specialized, day-patient facility to ease pressure at Surrey Memorial Hospital was first proposed by Premier Campbell in May 2005. A subsequent report outlining a range of options endorsed by government was released in December 2005 and included the recommendation of the outpatient hospital and primary care centre. Moving outpatient services to the new location will create additional space in Surrey Memorial Hospital for inpatient needs and allow work to begin on the remaining recommendations. These include increasing acute care beds and building a new emergency facility.
In addition to today's announcement of the site for the Surrey Outpatient Hospital, the provincial government has taken several actions to improve health care in Surrey and throughout the Fraser Valley .
This project was proposed by Campbell with a big photo-op in MAY of 2005(as indicated by the bold lines in the above cut n pasted Liberal spin)
So 2008 went by, 2009 went by, 2010 is gone and now the New Cluck Cluck Sensation is re-announcing the project again....The Global`s, the CTV`s...The Black press and big dailies should bow their heads in shame and apologize, Hari Kari would please me more but I would settle for a little honest journalism.
But what I really wanted to talk about was Hog Boy Billy Good......Billy had Jack Layton on his show for a whole 10 minutes this morning(between 8:50am to 9:00am)....Bill y had a real derogatory tone too his interview, again Billy was trying to blame Jack Layton for the upcoming election, however that is not what I want to talk about, after the Layton interview Billy Hog Boy had on three representatives, one from each party for the 9:00 am to 9:30 segment, Billy boy mentioned they would be taking calls, well well well....
The first caller and only caller in the 9:00 am to 9:30 am segment was someone named Brian(it wasn`t me)...The caller said...I`m paraphrasing here...
"Can we trust the Harper Government with a majority, will he protect our democratic institutions, can Harper really be trusted........"
And then Billy Hog Boy Good cut the caller off in a huff....Then what Hog Boy did was ......Hog Boy said(The 9:30 news was next and the 9:00 am to 9:30 am segment was over)
I`m paraphrasing here....Hog Boy said...We will have to get this panel together again, the NDP representative and Liberal representative are leaving and Mr.Powers will be staying to take questions....
I was shocked, Billy Hog said he would take callers, the first caller went at the Conservatives, Hog Boy cut him off in a snit, Hog boy then did the next 30 minute segment with only the Conservative representative to spin the facts and answer staged callers who love the Conservatives and how outraged they are that they may have to spend 30 minutes to vote...OH the HUMANITY!...Sheesh...That is pathetic, are you telling me that it wasn`t planned to dump the other party representatives and spotlight a Federal Con spinner...Bad radio indeed, Goebells media...Billy Hog Boy Racist Good, PERIOD!
And to finish up folks, I hear the Federal Cons and the media crying about the cost of an election, $300 million dollars, like I said, there is no better real person stimulus package than holding elections, having worked many elections the people who work them are seniors, students, mothers and fathers and people like me, almost all the money spent on elections goes to regular folks and this story here backs me up and debunks the myth that election spending is money wasted, it`s a great read enjoy
BC Liberals and Conservatives make me sick, out of one side of their mouth they claim spending $900 million on a roof is a stimulus package that creates jobs where as spending money employing little old people during an election is wasting money, Effing hypocrites! And what about Harper spending $30 million dollars in two months advertising how he spent billions of deficit dollars, that my friends is really wasted money, you wanted this election Harper, good luck with all those contempt of Parliament charges, pleasent dreams Bev Oda!
I don`t know what to say folks, the media in this Province are not only not reporting the truth they are actively working to harm the public, 20 years ago the media in this Province would be stripped of their journalistic credentials for lying and spinning, and not subtle but blatant lies and spin...I guess that`s why no less than 20 relatives of media personalities work for the BC Liberal Public affairs bureau!
