Christy Clark, Politics of Hate

Pat Bell, another bold-faced lying BC Liberal, yes you Pat Bell..You lie with ease, a quality honed and perfected and taught to all BC Liberals by the masters of lies, those masters being Gordon Campbell and Michael Campbell....

Can you imagine Pat Bell and Christy Clucking Clark telling the voters of BC that the name BC Place was "Iconic"..A brazen lie..of course that lie didn`t last very long before Christy promoted a new lie...

The story on the BC Place naming scandal went down like this...Bell Canada threatened Christy Clark BC Liberals thusly...and I quote...

"If you want photo-ops during the next provincial election with star players of the Vancouver White caps promoting your team Christy Clark you will cancel the Telus stadium naming deal"

That is what was said, there was no mincing words, in fact there was explicit language used by the Whitecaps and Bell Canada`s upper brass that not only would they snub all BC Liberals but actually endorse the NDP and bring up the BC Liberal 2009 election promise where they promised Delta and the Whitecaps an elaborate soccer center, an election promise that was vanquished soon after Campbell won his third term, as one high official of the Whitecaps stated ...

"We haven`t forgot that broken promise"

And just what was that broken promise, and which BC Liberal was promoted by the Whitecaps, well, actually it was all BC Liberals but in particular it was Wally Oppal and a promised soccer center in Delta...But as you know, Wally Oppal lost and the Delta soccer center was scrapped!..

At the below video link is Bobby Lennarduzzi, Wally Oppal, Gordon  Campbell making a multi-million dollars promise to the voters of Delta just days before the 2009 election promising a world-class soccer center in Delta....

And guess what, as soon as the 2009 provincial election was over and Wally Oppal wasn`t elected but sent out to the woodshed, the promised multi-million dollar soccer center in Delta was canceled, in other words Bob Lennerduzzi and the Whitecaps were used and abused and tossed aside like dirty ass-wipe tissue!..

The Vancouver Sun and Province have removed all stories related to the 2009 election and Whitecaps scandal involving Delta and the BC Liberals..

These links are dead..

This story is meant to highlight that Christy Clark and the BC Liberals only know  the "Politics of Hate"

Christy Clark pissed away $50 million public tax dollars ($40 million for naming rights and $10  million in wireless technology Telus installed at BC Place) for the soul purpose of securing photo op for the 2013 election featuring her and prominent Whitecap players ....Politics of hate, that is all Christy Clark has left to offer.

All these haters come crawling out of the woodwork, Bob Plecas in his op-ed piece that ran in the Vancouver Sun...What was Bob Plecas`s advice to Christy Clark...Let me remind you of what Plecas advised,

"Can Clark rebuild the centre-right coalition?
The answer is yes. There are three reasons.
1. She is a great communicator. 2. The spotlight has not shone on Cummins, and some of his views, on homosexuality and first nations, appear under close scrutiny to be too extreme right-wing.
3. Dix has past issues and strong ideologies that are also not representative of the majority of British Columbians, and these also have not been widely discussed. More power to Dix's charm offensive - his strategy is working.
What are Clark's options? 1. Continue down the path she is on. That is a sure path to opposition.
2. Go to Cummins and form a coalition. With the egos involved, that is unlikely.
3. Implement policy initiatives to rebuild the centre-right coalition.
What are examples of policy options that lend themselves to rebuilding the coalition?
1. The Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline. Demand Alberta share the revenue from the pipeline between the oilsands and Kitimat as a condition for B.C.'s support. As proposed, Alberta would gain all the benefits, while B.C. takes all the risk. Royalty splitting would have B.C. dedicate its share towards safety, first nations and com-munities in the north. The NDP will have to oppose, or split their party.

2. Legislate a two-year tax freeze on the province and municipalities. The NDP can announce targeted tax increases all it wants.

3. Legislate to end the teachers' dispute. Stand on the side of students and parents, let the NDP stand with the teachers' union.

4. Legislate the end to the current public sector pension plan for MLAs and staff, and create a new plan, based on a private-sector model, for new hires and newly elected.

5. Terminate all bonuses for senior executives in the entire public sector. This analysis points a clear direction for Clark to remain in power. Move to the right; provide voters with a choice, through aggressive, controversial policy and legislative action - basically, attracting Conservatives back to the centre-right coalition. None of these ideas is so right-wing as to lose the centre.
Clark could win again, but bold action is required.
Bob Plecas is a former deputy minister in several previous B.C. governments and ministries."

Bob Plecas advised Christy Clark to be a hater, create wedge issues, to highlight Adrian Dix`s past, specifically Memo-gate.....

Cue Phil Hocstein, can anyone tell me why Phil Hocstein is spending members monies in the political arena?..I can, Phil Hocstein is a bought man, Hocstein is against real wages, against raising the minimum wage, against worker`s right, Phil Hocstein is the lowest piece of slimy shit to ever inhabit British Columbia, a weak gutless puke who was gifted a $80 K per year gig at the Port of Vancouver as a reward for fighting the Ida Chong recall campaign..

Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure


VICTORIA - The Province has filled the vacancy on the Port Metro Vancouver Board created by the departure of the outgoing provincial appointee, whose term of office expires Feb. 28, 2011. The term for a new member on the board of directors is three years.

Philip Hochstein has been chosen to replace current appointee, Sarah Morgan-Silvester. Hochstein is president of the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of B.C. (ICBA). He has extensive governance and board experience as well as knowledge of the Asia Pacific Gateway, primarily through this experience serving on the board of directors of the Asia Pacific Gateway Skills Table.

In addition, Hochstein chairs the Construction Industry’s Benefit Plan board of trustees; is on the board of directors for the SHARE Family and Community Services Society and ICBA Benefit Services Ltd. Former chair of the Coalition of BC Businesses, Hochstein earned a masters degree in public administration from the University of Victoria in 1984 and an honours degree in history from McGill University in Montreal.

Prior to joining the ICBA in 1986, Hochstein was manager of membership services for the Mechanical Contractors Association of B.C. and also worked for the Canada Employment and Immigration Commission as well as the provincial Ministry of Finance.

The board of directors for Port Metro Vancouver is composed of 11 members: one federal appointee, one B.C. provincial appointee, one appointee for the Prairie Provinces (Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba), one municipal appointee and seven port-user appointees.

Port Metro Vancouver is responsible for the operation and development of the assets and jurisdictions of the combined former Fraser River Port Authority, North Fraser Port Authority and Vancouver Port Authority.


 So Hocstein runs an ad to remind people of Memo-gate from the 90`s...Adrian Dix has been elected twice since then, you see folks this is all the BC Liberals have...Hate, divide, wedge issues and blatant lies, blatant lies that BC`s media lets slide....

It doesn`t matter, Christy Clark is finished,. the BC Liberals are dead and no amount of dirty politics will work....

The teachers debate and Bill 22......Propaganda unleashed, let me be perfectly clear, the teachers and the BCTF came into their new agreement talks with outlandish demands, however, the BCTF shot for the moon hoping in reality to receive a few crumbs, CKNW, Bill Good, and others like Jon Ferry really did a real hatchet job on the teachers and unfortunately there are so many stunned idiots who believe the propaganda, people without brains, people who need to be led around on a leash, people like....BC Liberal voters and Conservatives, uneducated non-thinkers...

The teachers won a supreme court battle over classroom sizes and composition..The court ruled that Christy Clark`s Bill 28 and 29 were illegal, the courts agreed..

Last year the court finally ruled against Christy Clark`s hatred of teachers bills..


"VICTORIA – The B.C. government will work with the B.C. Teachers' Federation rather than continue a court battle over control of class size and special needs support in public schools, Education Minister George Abbott said Thursday.

The government has been studying a ruling two weeks ago from the B.C. Supreme Court, which said the government infringed on teachers' constitutional right to bargain with its 2002 legislation that removed class size and special needs support levels from the union contract.
Abbott said the government's legal advice was not to appeal the ruling, because of a landmark 2007 decision by the Supreme Court of Canada that struck down similar legislation altering health care support workers' union contracts.

In the health care case, Canada's highest court extended the constitutional right to freedom of association to include collective bargaining for the first time.

In the school case, Justice Susan Griffin of the B.C. Supreme Court gave the B.C. government a year to work out an alternative to the 2002 legislation.
The BCTF has filed thousands of union grievances over class sizes and the number of students with special needs in classrooms around the province, as well as pursuing the issue in court.

Abbott said he called BCTF president Susan Lambert and B.C. School Trustees Association president Michael McEvoy to tell them he wants to see a negotiated solution.

But Abbott acknowledged that the government could end up legislating new rules if negotiations don't produce a deal.

After Griffin's court decision, the BCTF estimated that the government would have to add $275 million to the education ministry budget to reduce class sizes and provide support staff to restore conditions from 2002."

 Richmond Review - B.C. won't appeal class size ruling - Mobile Edition


Now, here`s the deal, Christy Clark hated her father who was a teacher,  she quit S-F-U after being caught cheating on student council elections, Christy Clark screamed and yelled and threatened law suits against S-F-U but after realizing her antics were falling on deaf ears she up and quit, but to this day her hatred of her father and all teachers has never abated, she took great pleasure in writing illegal bills 28 and 29 that stripped out worker`s right and classroom size and composition..

So when the Supreme court ruled against the BC Liberal Government and struck down Christy`s illegal bills the teachers celebrated as if they won....

But what did they win, WCB(Worksafe BC)....Gordon Campbell corrupted that agency in 2002 as well, WCB has screwed over 1000`s of seriously injured workers, workers with life-changing injuries, these workers take their grievances to the Appeal board or WCAT....And many workers win their appeals at WCAT, but they never really win, for what WCAT(Workers Compensation Appeal`s Tribune) does is this...They(WCAT) send the ruling back to the injured worker`s case manager and that is when the games begin, the case manager tweaks his/her decision and screw the injured worker all over again, each round of the flawed decision made by case managers take roughly 3 years to play out,  they eventually wear down and bankrupt injured workers, with no money coming in.......Playing this criminal decision, appeal, tweak and re-do game until either the injured worker dies, commits suicide or gives up broke...Delay, Deny, Defend, that is WCB`s motto....

What I`m trying to say is this, the teachers thought they won in the Supreme court but, but they`re dealing with a corrupt Government that takes all it`s advice, both legal and political from tired old Socred hacks like Bobby Plecas or from the Fraser institute editorial board that hides behind the Vancouver Sun moniker.....

For after the Supreme court ruling the teachers thought they had won Fazil Mihlar wrote an editorial in the Vancouver Sun that did 2 things, Fazil Mihlar wrote that the BCTF and the teachers didn`t win anything, they didn`t win a say in classroom size or composition, .....

Infact I was so outraged I wrote a post about Fazil Mihlar`s editorial, I read the editorial and it spoke in clear terms, what the Vancouver Sun told the Christy Clark Government through the editorial was this....

You did not break the law BC Liberals....You DO NOT have to change classroom DO NOT have to change classroom composition...You don`t have to do anything but.....

"But consult", the Vancouver Sun editorial made the legal argument which Christy Clark has followed to the tee....Vancouver Sun told the BC Government that the supreme court ruling had nothing to do with with classroom size or composition ...Fazil Kihlar advised the BC Government that all they have to do is consult!!!!!!...Meaning the BC Government can impose any class size or composition it see`s fit as long as they do one thing...Consult...

Bill 22 has the exact same language as bills 28 and 29 that were ruled illegal, in other words the BC Liberals will ram through bill 22 knowing full well the bill will be tossed out AGAIN in the Supreme court...

Christy Clark only knows the politics of hate, CKNW is bleeding listeners, listeners are leaving in droves for one reason...CKNW is controlled by BC Liberal insiders...Bill Good has sunk to levels so low, Sean Leslie has had a BC Liberal brand stamped on his ass...2 weeks ago Bill Good and the cutting ledge show, the entire show Billy Good only attacked teachers, there was no other subject, only teachers, it`s the first time in CKNW history where the cutting edge of the ledge show only touched one item...I phoned up Bill Good`s producer and told her to tell Bill Good to move on, for the last month Billy Good has sounded like Christy Clark when she was on air railing against teachers every single day....Christy Clark, Phil Hocstein, Bill Good and his fellow BC Liberal stooges are so desperate they are prepared to throw their last bit of credibility out the window to save their place at the public trough..

CKNW are about to lose John Macolm over his refusal to pimp Christy Clark...Simi Sara has been called into her bosses office as well, pressure is being put on Simi Sara to get on board or be prepared to be unemployed...

Such a shame that these quality people are being asked to dumb it down to Christy Clark`s level or be removed from the airwaves..

Anyway....Here are some highlights from that Fazil Mihlar editorial that I wrote about...My post was called..

Vancouver Sun, Home of yellow Journalism II "

I would like to show you a couple of the key lines and paragraphs in the garbage Vancouver Sun editorial.

"It should be noted that this ruling was based on a Supreme Court of Canada decision that did not exist at the time the offending legislation was enacted. The legislation was part of a restructuring of government and of provincial labour laws that the Liberals undertook when then premier Gordon Campbell took power in 2001"

"In 2007, in response to a challenge by the Hospital Employees' Union to Bill 29, similar legislation that negated the contract provisions, the Supreme Court of Canada made a 180-degree turn on its own earlier rulings and recognized that collective bargaining is protected as a charter right under freedom of association"

"That said, the government made a mistake in refusing to discuss what it was planning with teachers before bringing in the legislation, which Judge Griffin ruled was much more sweeping than needed to accomplish the province's stated goal of optimum allocation of resources to schools."

"That omission, the judge noted, was taken by teachers as evidence of a lack of respect by the government for their contribution to the education system".

And the next paragraph in that pathetic editorial goes right too the meat of the author`s intent, trouble making!

"  Looking ahead, it's important to recognize what the ruling does and does not do. It does not give teachers the right to impose their collective view on class size and other workplace issues. What it does is restore their right to bring such issues to the bargaining table. What emerges is still up to negotiation. This ruling is about process, not outcome"

And I have a couple more juicy lines from the bullcrap editorial to share with you.

" So the government should and will still have the right and responsibility to set the curriculum, set standards and to control costs in the public school system"
Well well well, the Vancouver Sun editorial board has given both Christy Clark and the BC Government some crappy legal advice, the gist of what this asshole is saying is....The Government can do whatever the hell it wants as long as they consult stakeholders first, it`s not about the outcome it`s about the "Process" snip.
That is one sick and twisted editorial, beware teachers, Christy Clark`s bosses have again given her and the BC Liberals their marching orders.

Cheers Eyes Wide Open

I was the only one in the Province who wrote about that Vancouver Sun editorial and what it meant to the teachers, it meant more worker hating games being employed by Christy Clark....

I would let you read the editorial itself but like so-many Vancouver Sun stories, they produce such biased garbage they are too ashamed to leave the story intact, ..Here`s the dead link to Fazil Mihlars now deleted legal advice to school drop-out Christy Clark.


Christy Clark never had any intention of lowering class sizes or changing class composition for the better, this battle has always been about destroying public education and promoting private for profit schooling, ...

Christy Clark never completed any of her education, she quit S-F-U, she gave up after producing failing grades from every school she ever attended, her father gave up trying to educate Christy..

Now we have the Queen of hatred pretending to be premier and unless the BC Government puts up lights and a brass pole in the BC Legislature we will never see Christy Clark again after May/2013..

You want hatred Christy, you are about to see 85 riding of hatred!

Regarding the dead links to columns you might consider downloading some of them and storing them on a small 500GB portable HD. This way you would have them for future use.

Plecas and his strategy is useless as all of the spineless twits in the present government demonstrate little in the way of courage to leave and sit as independents along with zero integrity for doing what is right for constituents.

Conservative, Liberal, whatever…call them cherry pie if you like it will to change their outlook nor their final outcome.
British Columbians will have their final solution for this government and soon.

Never heard from you via the email address that was requested.

Another of Christy Clarks more glorious moments revisited.

Hope that is OK

The fact of the matter is that Christy Clark does not have the intelligence required to run an effective political campaign based on policy. Catchy slogans are not policy. They are just hollow utterances that may sound good in a sound byte but have nothing substantive behind them.

It seems to me that she is depending on sex, sports and a folksy style of speaking to curry the votes of the males who think with their little head rather than the one that contains the brain.

Besides the cleavage controversy during the fall sitting and the way she flaunts herself in front of any males in her photo-ops in front of blue collar workers one can't help but think that she is employing the sex angle. It may play well with 20-40 year old males but doesn't seem to be much of a hit with voters of the female persuasion, if past polls are any indication.

The sports attachment comes not only with her penchant to be seen with sporting celebrities, but also to the many times she refers to sports references when discussing issues that have nothing to do with any sport.

Finally, there is the irritating way she uses slang rather than proper English when flapping her gums. It's as if she is taking a page out of Sarah Palin's playbook. Maybe that is why she has also decided to wear glasses.

Maybe a real telling poll is the one that CKNW had on their website on Wednesday. They asked if Christy's first year as Premier deserved a pass or fail. At 7:00pm Thursday night the voting was 24%-PASS and 76%-FAIL. Considering that one would suspect that the PAB and her cohorts were probably enticed to vote for her simply to stroke her ego, one must come to the conclusion that her days as Premier are soon to end.

It is dispiriting to watch this crime spree. When I really need to raise my spirits and inoculation against politics of hate, I watch these videos:

This is another workplace safety tragedy that occurs more often than not. Every Canadian could find themselves in this same situation, it does not matter what position you hold in society either in the private sector or government it is and has been the law of the land since the mid 1990's. I became aware of this law and its implications in the late 1990's in the development of a fall protection system for the construction industry. My efforts to provide answers to this serious issue have taken me far beyond my wildest dreams as an individual that worked his whole life in the construction industry. The information that my website contains is written in plain language so that every person (homeowner) can understand what they need to know and how to apply it. This law for the most part is unknown by the majority of the Canadian population. The basic information that they (homeowners) receive is to ensure that the person you hire carries WCB and liability insurance. Unfortunately there is alot more to this law than those simple procedures as Gordon Campbell has now been made aware of and now regrets.

So if Christy were a hate monger like you claim, why would the m majority of people in the province vote for her you're not accusing the majority of British Columbians of being hate filled are you?

Adolf Hitler was also voted in by the public. Shall we investigate all of the similarities between Hitler and Clark starting with their daddy issues?
