Christy Clark`s Family Values, Trophy Bear Hunt and Manswers
The summary of the Q n A session ......The spokesperson for the business group after the event stated on the news that
"The NDP just don`t understand business"
Isn`t that interesting, BC has lost 40,000 thousand jobs in the last three months alone, Ian Tostenson was on CKNW yesterday and on Global news last night and told us viewers that 90 Vancouver restaurants are closing and roughly 800 food joints around the Province because of the HST, at even 10 employees per restaurant is another 10,000 lost jobs, the predictions of massive restaurant closures have come true, yet not one of the big business leaders give a rats ass about mom and pop businesses as long as the big oil n gas and miners are making money hand over fist.
What is there to brag about in British Columbia, the lowest minimum wage in Canada by a country mile, yet Hansen and Campbell talk about wage averages and how BC has high wages in comparison to other Provinces, sorry folks that is another lie, BC the most expensive Province to live yet in wages BC lags near the back of the pack, BC is in 8th place in Canada, the Fraser institute lies about BC`s high wages again has been debunked....
The HST, BCers have the highest personal debt levels in North America, the lowest minimum wage, almost in last place in Canada for wage levels, 40,000 lost jobs over the last three months with another 10,000 layoffs coming to the food industry, the HST...Hmmm...Where are those jobs Jack Mintz flip flopped on, where are those lower prices big business promised us, I wonder if that HST panel Gordon Campbell put together will mention the job losses and high inflation......
Anyone getting any breaks on copper?...How about Gold, any discounts for locals?....Ever since the HST was implemented oil has spiked to nearly $100 dollars per barrel, anybody getting a break at the pump?.....In the news lately...There has been talk of how exports of ore and oil have driven up Canada`s GDP, corporations are flush with cash, in fact yesterday Michael Levy said...
Corporations during the 2007 recession became lean and mean, they laid off people and became more efficient, a lot of them invested in new equipment which turned 10 jobs into 2 jobs, we really don`t know how much hiring will come
Can`t you see this growing pattern everywhere, corporate profits up, corporate taxes down yet they aren`t hiring, the big corporate sector can write off their new investments, they aren`t investing in man power they are investing in efficiencies, that means job losses, what the corporate world and Canadian Governments don`t understand (or maybe they do) if the people have no money they won`t spend, the HST has not created one job in BC and has cost at a minimum 50,000 jobs and growing and the Chamber of Commerce and board of trade expect the NDP leaders to stand up and defend the HST, a tax that evebn the BC Liberals can`t coherently defend with facts!
Family values, Tim Hortons, yea that makes sense, Tim Hortons is Canadian, here in BC the Liberals are using Tim Horton restaurants as brand new triage space for our overcrowded hospital hallways,
Over 300 portables in Surrey, Surrey is short of schools by at least 10 schools, Surrey memorial emergency expansion was promised in 2005 and to this day there is nothing, family values being taught in portables, the Gordon Campbell Liberals were so busy closing 200 schools they failed to keep up with the only growing school district, Family value tolls, perhaps Christy Clark has some encouraging words for the people of the Fraser Valley who will soon be paying $2000 dollars per year to drive to work......
Family Value BC Hydro rates, can you imagine, BC Hydro wants to raise residential family hydro rates by 60% over 5 years yet the industrial hydro rate has ZERO forecast increases, that`s right folks, YOU can 50% more on your base rate plus a 2 tier rate while the corporate industrial customer is getting the Hydro bill lowered, BC Hydro and the Liberals claim the increases are for new infrastructure and upgrades, that is only half true....$1 billion dollars is for unproven smart meters to be installed in your home, they won`t create 1 kilowatt of power, have you ever heard of the Northwest Transmission line, the Feds are kicking in a little bit of money and the mining and resource sector was initially going to contribute to the Northwest transmission line considering no people live(very few,hundreds)there, the new power line is for resource extraction, it`s an almost exclusive industrial use power line and guess what, part of the huge BC Hydro increases on RESIDENTIAL RATES will go to pay for and subsidize the Northwest Transmission line......
Family Values, 60% increases on residential Hydro rates while industry gets a brand new power line subsidized by YOU.....Where does that residential ripoff fit in to your family values Christy?
The BCUC has had their authority removed by the BC Libnerals from looking at smart meters, rate increases, Northwest transmission line, any and all upgrades, the BCUC can`t look at any of the contracts with IPPs.
So Premier designate Christy Clark, could you explain why BC Hydro is asking for a %60 increase from residential customers while freezing and reducing industrial rates?....Can you explain why sick and injured are being treated by Timmy Horton.....Could you explain to the Surrey soccer moms why their kids are getting schooled in Atco trailers....Could you explain why British Cloumbia has lost over 40,000 jobs in 3 months....Can you explain why the HST is causing 1000 restaurant closures and another 10,000 to 20,000 job losses....
And lastly Christy Clark could you explain why Kash Heed is never in his constituency office and refuses to talk both his constituents and the media?
Or would you rather talk about your favorite show MANSWERS on Spike TV, or perhaps you might want to talk about all the tourism opportunities there are in Trophy Bear hunting....After all, you Christy Clark are in COMPLETE FAVOUR of the TROPHY BEAR HUNT in B.C.....As admitted by you on many occasions on CKNW!
Make sure to check in with Premier Gordon Campbell and Patrick Kinsella for your talking points!
