cat and his army, remember that saying, "Revenge is a dish best served cold"
Bill Vanderzalm not only spearheaded the HST tax revolt but he also drove Gordon Campbell out of the Province, albeit to a cushy gig in London, and the more I think of it he actually did much much more than that, and for that we all owe Bill Vanderzalm a debt of gratitude.
What might I be talking about?......Bill Vanderzalm has destroyed the BC Liberal party, the HST, the referendum, the results, the threats and ultimately the consequences, for now teachers get zero pay increases(even though they rank 5th in Canada by province in pay) because the HST was voted down and that goes for all public servants including paramedics, and the HST will be the Governments excuse for cutting services.....
Bill Vanderzalm has threatened to mobilize his army if the PST isn`t reinstated much quicker than the 19 months to March 1st/2013...
And I would like you all to remember this quote from the Friday press conference in regard to the HST defeat.....Both Christy Clark and Kevin Falcon stated and I quote...
"The public has spoken, the HST was defeated, it`s time to move on" snip
But George Abbott just stated today that teachers get zippo for pay increases because the HST is gone.
Maybe you are wondering why I enlarged and put in bold the word gone, that answer is simple, the HST isn`t gone, theorectically the HST could be here for another almost 2 years, so how on earth can the BC Liberals use the HST defeat in 2011 as an excuse for shitting on everyone when the tax is here until 2013?
The Christy Clark caretaker Government is prepared to collect the HST for almost 2 more years and almost 3 years in total for a cash grab of roughly $ 1.8 billion dollars over that time frame and that`s not counting the $2 billion dollars per year business will be getting(Big business)......The extra cash in this grab is more than enough to return the Feds the bribe money(our money).....
Harper will sacrifice many seats in BC if he doesn`t concede on forgiving the money, Harper also believes his gains in Ontario will make up for his ultimate seat losses in BC
Let`s examine the dynamics and remember that Friday quote from cluck cluck Clark...
"It`s time to put the HST behind us and move on"
Harper has been pushed into a corner by Bill Vanderzalm...Campbell is gone and the Christy Clark caretaker Government is blaming every shortfall in money, every wage negotiation, every healthcare disaster and every damn thing that Gordon Campbell put his hands on is also going wrong and bankrupting the Province and all Christy clucking Clark and her sinisters(typo error intended) can do is blame the HST.
The HST is like "stink on a monkey"...It ain`t going anywhere, the BC Liberals can`t get out of their funk until the HST is gone and the PST returned, it will linger on and on and drag the Liberals into extinction, the more they use the HST as a crutch the more their support will wane and as a result of Gordon Campbell pollinating our crown corporations they will continue to bleed money out of BC, it`s a no win situation that gets worse and worse over time and I haven`t even got to the fun part yet.
The truth be known is that the BC Liberals haven`t given up on the HST yet, Harper is steadfast to keep the HST and is pressuring the BC Liberals to keep the HST........ and if need be to fall on their swords with the BC electorate, Stephen Harper doesn`t care if the BC Liberals flame out and get decimated over the HST....The tax is that important to Harper`s big business buddies, his corporate friends carry more clout with him than does Christy clucking Clark......And there is one more thing Harper has calculated that will keep his steadfast support and defence of the HST .....Harper has calculated that the BC Liberals will lose the next election anyway so just ram the tax down British Columbia`s throat and be done with it, that is the message from Ottawa to Christy Clark, Harper will not speed up that time line for the sole purpose of putting pressure on the BC Liberals to keep the tax....This is really getting entertaining and there is so much more.
The Province itself, next year, the year 2012 will be a very slow economic year with the HST hanging around, $ million dollar homes in Vancouver, all vacation property, all big private sales on boats and vehicles, services, renos, the broke and already in debt average British Columbian will wait to save large cash, there is no doubt about that, even restaurants won`t recover fully until the HST is gone, we are talking about turning the province of British Columbia into the basket case of Canada, we were dead last in Canada in economic growth over the last year with the HST, I guarantee that we will be dead last again and again until the HST is gone, the whole of the province will suffer as a result of the tax fiasco and that "stink on a monkey" will remain for The Christy Clark caretaker Government until we are extricated from this tax uncertainty, also, it won`t just be the people screaming at the Government, business will suffer and they too will be asking, demanding a faster transition to a tax system, either PST/GST or by crook the HST....The business of BC can`t wait 19 months.
That $billion dollar smile of Bill the BC Liberal Terminator Vanderzalm could light up BC Place by itself, my hats off to you Mr. Bill Vanderzalm.

Bill Vanderzalm, the man with ice in his veins!
