A Moment in Time

I hope you all have big plans for this long weekend, time to celebrate, despite all the BC Liberal lies and deceptions we have reason to hold our heads high....

I really needed a respite, a short holiday, the time was right for gathering wood for this winter, no time like the present,....And yes I have been listening to CKNW, I happened to catch Laila Yuile on the dial...The blonde bomber still has it.....After all that has been written on the HST it never fails to amaze how radio voices can spew deliberate lies on air without challenge....Last Saturday on Money Talks.(A Canada-wide syndicated show) hosted by Michael Campbell....Michael Campbell stated and I quote....

"The BC Government is sending everyone in the Province a $175 transition cheque" Snip

Perhaps Gordo`s brother Michael Campbell would like to retract....For if he doesn`t the CBSC will force him to do so(The complaint has been filed)....For only low-income seniors and families with dependent children under 18 years of age receive any such transition payment, the thing is ......Michael Campbell knew he was lying and when the first caller griped about the HST Michael talked over him and cut him off.....And then there is Billy blue pill woodless Good and his gobbily goop....Before I get there, Today, Thursday July 28th Michael Smyth was given the official heave ho from CKNW....

Now I know what bullshit AGT said and wrote about the story, how Michael Smyth is entrenched in Victoria, Biily Good said the same thing today, can you imagine how twisted Michael Smyth is, first off they treat him like garbage for pointing out Liberal crimes, then they hijack his show and hand it over to Michael Campbell for an HST liefest, then today....Billy nasty boy Good went out of his way to advertise his 10:00 am to 10:30 am segment, they advertised Billy Boy making a big announcement at 10:06 am...And he did(I was hoping he was retiring)..Billy Good announced that Simi Sara was taking over the Michael Smyth show...Talk about low class, Billy Good invites Simi Sara on his show and shazzaam...Michael Smyth was now only a temporary fill-in, both Simi and Billy Boy acted like Smyth was an also-ran!....What it was...It was Christy Clark laying down the law of advertising dollars to a complicit CKNW...And as for Billy Good stating that Michael Smyth is "Entrenched in Victoria and with his column" snip...What a load of crapolla, first off his columns are short and researchless drivel(for the most part) and....The Legislature has sat but a few weeks in the last 18 months, the only thing Michael Smyth will gather up in the Victoria Legislature is cobwebs!

The Province newspaper loved the fact that Smyth was on air and able to promote his column and the paper, that is worth more to The Province newspaper than having Smyth cover a non sitting  legislature, and Sean Leslie has had no problem broadcasting from the radio room in Victoria, any talk about "complications" and "too hard to organize" is just bullshit spin from a egotistical jealous blogger sponge...The Michael Smyth saga started early this year, Smyth refused to bend over for management, the only thing that saved Michael Smyth (for a while) was me jumping the story and embarrassing CKNW , everything else is bullshit..."If it doesn`t make sense it isn`t true"  Judge Judy

Anyway, So last week Billy Good had on a tax lawyer to talk HST, and she too lied.....She was asked a direct question from a caller....The caller asked her...

"Personally speaking, you as an individual, are you better off under the HST or PST/GST "Snip

I though to myself, that was a real good question, the radio went momentarily silent, she paused, she wasn`t sure but then she blurted out a bold-faced lie....She said and I quote....

"With the corresponding tax cuts that Gordon Campbell brought in with the HST made the difference, I believe I`m ahead under the HST"snip

That was a bold-faced lie, for Gordon Campbell brought in ZERO tax cuts with the HST....Yes Gordon Campbell went on TV in the fall of 2008 and announced a small income tax cut starting in 2009, he also announced on the that same broadcast a small business tax rate dropping to 0 in in 2012, and he also announced doubling the fee small business was paid to collect the PST, the HST did not exist in BC in the fall of 2008....So for this two-bit tax lawyer to connect those tax cuts to the HST is a lie, a bold-faced lie...And let`s look at what happened to those fall of 2008 tax cut announcements...The small business tax cut is gone, removed, rescinded!....The fee for collecting the PST is gone, a $2400 dollar yearly hit on small business.......And Gordon Campbell wasn`t finished with his televised tax cut announcements...For in the fall of 2010 Gordo announced another tax cut on TV and announced........A 15% tax cut, and how long did that tax cut last....About 1 week....So for this so-called tax lawyer to make up lies out of whole cloth is pathetic and so typically Billy Good, my suggestion, if you need a tax lawyer avoid hiring that one....Oh indeed, yes there was great pleasure in Bill Good`s voice today when he personally announced the demise of Michael Smyth.....

Michael Smyth showed a lot of class, personally speaking, I would have put Billy Boy into a temporary slumber, my fatal flaw aways comes back to haunt me, violence is not beyond me, it was a classless act, there was no Michael Smyth send-off....Smyth doesn`t exist anymore.....

So we have CKNW radio stooges lying their faces off, we have the Jim Dinning report now tainted with scandal and more, great coverage on the stinky connections by Sean Holman..Laila Yuile..Norman Farrell...and Ross K...

Now normally I might lose my top over the deliberate radio lies except this time....This time it matters not, for despite the Smart Tax Alliance, despite Billy Good, despite CKNW, despite $50 million dollars of false advertising and intimidation, despite all of that a little birdie flew by my window and informed me that the mail in vote isn`t even close, we are talking about a Yes Yes Yes super majority to extinguish the HST...

I can`t name names......But I can tell you, perhaps Craig James should have been more careful in who he fired, perhaps, just perhaps allegiance and respect still stand for something...

Have a listen, cue up the CKNW audio vault, 8:30 am to 10:00 am July 23rd(the first half hour is where the lies are 8:30 to 8:45) listen the Michael Campbell lie his face off....

Meanwhile, enjoy the sun, celebrate, hug your children, call your parents,  we are about to make history,....Talk to ya after the weekend.

The Straight Goods

"L" got the shaft. James gets another Campbell golden handshake!

After today's segment on Bill Good's show with the dufus from Elections BC I have come to the conclusion that this vote should be declared null and void and a proper vote held in the same manner as a general election. If the callers were legit in the problems they have encountered in trying to get a ballot I can only surmise that many legitimate voters are being left out in the cold. In a supposed democracy this is just not acceptible.

Listen to the CKNW audio vault from 11:00am and you will see what I mean. This whole excercise is being turned into nothing but a joke and if the vote doesn't go the way the government and Smart Tax Alliance want it to don't be surprised to see the latter challenge the results in court. It's also possible that the Federal government could also challenge the results considering that they have a stake in the results as well.

On another issue, what do you think about BC Ferries commiting $20 million in support of Seaspan's bid for the Federal shipbuilding contract? What can there possibly be in it for them? What gives the provincial government the right to make this commitment on behalf of BC Ferries now that it is supposedly a private corporation especially considering that they are carrying a debt of $1.2 billion, according to David Hahn?

Grant G said...

The debt is $1.5 billion dollars..According to Hahn

(3 days ago, bill good show)

The BC Ferry contribution is a myth..

It`s contingent on winning the bid and...

And the $20 million will take a decade plus to spend...

It`s a phony photo-op designed to paint Hahn in a good light..

Too late, Hahn is toast..

My last BC Ferries story has Hahn and the BC Government very worried.

Michael Campbell is nothing more than a mouth piece for Gordon Campbell and the Liberals.

I refuse to listen to him anymore. Really enjoyed his programs prior to the HST. He refers to anyone who is against the HST as idiots. We just don't get it, according to him. I have tried to reach him by email but he does not have one evidently.

Now we find out there is a secret warehouse where Elections BC are pre-sorting the ballots before they get to the secondary site where observers from Fight HST are present. The location is secret, what is going on in that warehouse is secret and my question is - what are they hiding?

I am glad you are back, Grant. Have missed your posts the last while!

Grant G said...

The mechanism`s are in place to cheat the referendum, secret rooms, missing ballots, planted stooges.....

However, it is now quite apparent to both peabrain Falcon and Christy Clucking Clark that if they cheat the referendum they are demonizing 70% of the electorate pre general election...

The vote Yes to kill the HST will win the referendum...

But.

What you`ll see is a BC Provincial Government that will stall for 2 years before acting on the referendum...

There will be no fall election, no spring election..

Christy Clark is the joke of Canada, a tired old bimbo who best days are long...long, longggggg behind her, she realizes now that she can`t win a general election....

So, her`s what I think will happen...Christy Clark won`t cross Harper and remove the HST, Clark will get thrashed in the general election..

It`s my belief that Adrian Dix WILL dump the HST, BC will have(by that time)lived up to the 5 year deal...

Dix dumps the HST, no $1.6 billion dollar bribe goes to Ottawa, and..

The Liberal party in BC dismantles..

After-all....The BC Liberals at this time are polling at a miniscule 23%..

Cheers

Sorry to go off topic, but... If Seaspan are so good at building ships, why did they have their last four tugboats (that maneouvre their container ships in and out of Hongcouver)built in Turkey?

Also Seaspan advertises to be
Proudly Canadian", then why is the address of their principal executive offices in Unit 2, Bupa Centre, 141 Connaught Road W., Hong Kong, China? (tel 852-2540-1686 Sai W. Chu)

Grant G said...

Seaspan is an American company owned by a $billionaire who resides in Montana.

As for the ship building contract..Even if BC received 1/2 the contract( $17 billion of $35 billion)...

$17 billion over 35 years?????....The numbers are small..1/2 % of yearly GDP.

And for a little contrast..In 35 years BCers will pay with an HST tax an extra $50 billion dollars..

Cheers

I don't know one person that is in favor of the HST. Relatives and friends, in other parts of the province, also don't know one person in favor of the HST. In one restaurant, a tally was kept, 87% of the patrons are against the HST.

While we know, we have won the vote to extinguish the HST. We also know, the BC Liberals cheat.

The HST papers were blank, when they were pulled from the FOI. The Liberals also, secretly awarded firms with BC Liberal ties, for the pro HST campaign.

That the HST ballots are hidden in storage is, bad, bad, bad. We are forced to contend with, Craig James of Elections BC. He was caught in corruption when, he altered the wording on the recall, after the fact.

The BC Liberals have been lying to and thieving from the province and the people, for over ten years now.

The HST referendum ballots, were screwed around very badly. Some households only got one ballot. Some ballots had the inside envelopes missing. Some of the ballots, had some blank papers. Ballots were left stacked in apartment vestibules. There were just too many screw-ups, to believe these were mistakes.

Seaspan Marine Corp, formerly the Washington Marine Group...sound familiar?

It should. The same company that bought the fast ferries for $19 million from the Libs.

Hi Grant!!!
I love your optimism!

hey spellcheck - check out this link re: Washington Marine Group -

http://pacificgazette.blogspot.com/2011/06/railgate-resurfacingthe-auditor-general.html

Guess who worked for WMG when they were interested in buying BC Rail? None other than Bruce Clark, Christy Clark's brother ...

I can smell the rot from here ...

Anonymous said...

The Washington Marine Group, is now Seaspan? They are an American company. Does BC not have a, Canadian shipbuilding firm? Well, I guess we can all see, why Christy is rabid about, giving Seaspan the contract. I had read some time ago, Christy's brother worked for the WMG. The corrupt sale of the BCR, was involved with the WMG? OMG does this ever stink.

cherylb said...

Anyone who didn't get a ballot for the referendum after ordering one from Elections BC and/or tried to get through to order one and couldn't, please go to VoteYESBC and fill in the fields. We are collecting names of specific voters who were not able to vote and there are HUNDREDS of them! Ammunition in case the Lieberals cheat enough to call it a win for the NO side......

Warning - off topic (the charade in the US)

Every year the debt ceiling is raised this year it made the news... a lot.


from:

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/americas/us-lawmakers-line-up-to-vote-on-brokered-debt-ceiling-deal/article2116181/page1/

- more than $2-trillion in spending cuts.

- the agreement was “all spending cuts. The White House bid to raise taxes has been shut down.”

- deficit cuts, probably taken from benefit programs like farm subsidies, Medicare and the Medicaid health care program for the poor and disabled.

from:

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/international-news/global-exchange/spending-cuts-may-salvage-us-credit-rating/article2115598/

- Spending cuts will do little concrete to help an economy that is struggling to maintain momentum two years after a recession that, according to new data, was significantly deeper than previously thought.

- State and local governments, scrambling to live up to balanced-budget laws amid weaker revenue as a result of the economic downturn.

- many of the country’s biggest publicly traded companies have reported strong earnings



So after all the hype, pomp and spaz is stripped away we have a government stripping social spending while continuing to subsidize corporations and the elite. I hope the Americans see this for what it is and make like the Greeks and the Egyptians.

The Billy Goat was apoplectic over the thought of Mike Smyth being a regular on the afternoon show. CKNW is a complete joke - except for one minute with Bruce Allen.
