Boy oh boy are "Today`s B.C. Liberals" getting a little testy, 12 years in power and now just 62 days until the Liberals move their diminished caucus to the other side of the legislature, the opposition side of the legislature, I`m sure this is causing much consternation in the Liberal party..Funny don`t you think, the word party implying, party party party, as in a festive celebration, well, I liken "Today`s BC Liberals" not so much as a party but a death march...
Last week "Yesterday`s BC Liberal Kevin Kreuger" called John Cummins and the BC Conservatives "scum, morons, not fit to tie Pat Bell`s shoes or tall enough" here is the actual email..
From: Krueger.MLA, Kevin
Date: Tue, Feb 26, 2013 at 4:01 PM
Subject: The Honourable Pat Bell
To: "firstname.lastname@example.org" , "Krueger.MLA, Kevin"
Attention: B.C. Cons:
Mr. Cummins, and everybody involved in this news release, are “Unmitigated” MORONS to have published such crap as this.
Pat Bell is beloved in Prince George, for good reason. There is not ONE of you scum worthy to tie his shoes – nor tall enough.
You have just blown whatever support you might have hoped to muster in Prince George, and many other places.
What idiots you are.
Kevin Krueger, MLA
Kreuger is perhaps the missing link Darwinists are looking for, this came as no surprise to me, Kreuger has been a buffoon for years, the part that puzzles me is.."Honourable"...Why do we have a parliamentary tradition of calling those elected "honourable"...Kevin Kreuger probably can`t spell the word or utter it without bursting into uncontrolled laughter..Honourable Gordon Campbell, Honourable Kash Heed, Honourable Jane Thorthwaite, Honourable Colin Hansen...Kevin Kreuger invokes, to me, the words "mentally Disturbed"..
Shirley Bond is in a tither over BC Rail allegations, she smirks, she grins, she dares, she bafflegabs, well, she is also losing the battle against gravity as accumulated stress lines from years of lying take their toll, again, the word Honourable or attorney do not imply to her either..
And today Bill Bennett, or as he is known to me.."slime for hire" got in on the act...The Kooteney racist, who could forget Bill Bennett slime for hire running racist ads during the 2009 election, and offering free beers to young people, free beers, and all those youth had to do was get educated by Bill Bennett as to how to vote...and to think Billy Bennett is one of Christy Clark`s top ministers, brings new meaning to the term.."best and the brightest"..Well, with Don Mcrae`s intellectual prowess and Terry Lake`s gummy bear pretzel logic perhaps Bill Bennett is the "best and the Brightest" out of "Today`s BC Liberals"
And speaking of death march(like that segue?)..The Burnaby Hospital scandal.
The Burnaby hospital scandal wasn`t so much about an ethnic outreach plot by the BC Liberals, that was indeed a huge part of the scandal, the real scandal was over 100 elderly people who walked into Burnaby hospital and left in a box, dead, killed by a germ infested hospital, a hospital that became germ-infested because "Yesterday`s BC Liberals" , Gordon Muir Campbell fired the in-house HEU cleaning services and outsourced this important job to Aramark, where this company hired unqualified cleaners while simultaneously slashing cleaning hours per hospital..This led to C Diff outbreaks everywhere Aramark went, Nanaimo, Victoria, Burnaby hospital, a trail of needless death...And instead of closing the hospital down Fraser Health continued to allow sick people to enter a Burnaby death-trap hospital...
So instead of protecting patients the health authorities protected "Today`s BC Liberals"..Then something very disturbing happened, when the story broke, all the needless deaths, what did Christy Clark and her caucus do, did they address the situation, did they express sympathy or even apologize to the families of the deceased, no, the BC Liberal caucus with help from their partisan operatives and party hacks tried to turn this human tragedy into..
"Quick wins"...into.."an election winning issue"...This indeed was part of Christy Clark`s, Kim Haakstad`s, Pamela Martin`s, Brian Bonney`s, and Pamela Gardner`s and many other BC Liberals Ethnicgate planning document..
North Van Grumps revealed a couple of weeks ago that BC Liberal operative Brian Bonney and or his wife Monica Bonney(one in the same).. was writing writing letters to the editors, or is promoting the BC Liberals 2013 bogus budget..The same Brian Bonney who tried to turn the Burnaby hospital deaths into a political win..
Blog Borg Collective: "B" is for Brian; "M" is for Monika, "BCL" is for BC Liberals
Monika Bonney, Brian Bonney`s better half is a frequent letter writer too...
Education funding rising
Re: Teachers go back to the bargaining table in spring, Burnaby NOW, Sept. 5.
I hope the B.C. Teachers' Federation and their president, Susan Lambert, can learn to get along better with Don McRae, the new minister of education, than they did with previous ministers. I, for one, am getting very tired of hearing Ms. Lambert claiming that education funding in B.C. has been cut when it has not been.
Over the past decade (i.e., since the 2000/01 school year) education funding in B.C. has been increased by $1.4 billion. That's a 26 per cent increase.
This funding increase is particularly noteworthy when you consider that there are now 63,000 fewer students in B.C.'s education system than there were a decade ago.
And that's not all.
North Van Grumps wasn`t finished, Brian Bonney who was emailed on private back-channel email addresses was part of Christy Clark`s top staffers ethnicgate planning document...Was also updating his resume, promoting himself as an ethnic super organizer..
There is another BC Liberal operative who was part of ethnicgate scandal..
Pamela Gardner was connected to the ethnicgate scandal and the Burnaby hospital scandal...The next bit by Keith Baldrey
For a glimpse of how manipulative and detached from reality many B.C. Liberals have become, one needs to look no further than a three-page memo written by party insiders that deals with the future of Burnaby Hospital.
Entitled "A NEW Burnaby Hospital", the memo purports to lay out a strategy for winning three Burnaby ridings and boost the party's chances in two Vancouver ridings. If it didn't reveal such a crass and phony scheme to whip up public opinion over the hospital's future, it would be laughable.
And much of it is laughable.
My personal favourite is its emphasis, in bold type, of the fact that Premier Christy Clark was born in this very hospital!
Talk about a game changer. I'm sure public opinion in Burnaby will instantly swing the premier's way once everyone realizes which maternity ward she was born in!
The memo was written back in December 2011, and reveals in fine detail how utterly politically partisan a committee created to plan the hospital's future really is and how it was created to save the hides of B.C. Liberal MLAs and nothing else.
The memo's authors are B.C. Liberal party insiders, including a former president of a Burnaby riding association for the party. They make the argument that rebuilding the hospital - you know, the one where the premier was born - is the ticket to winning seats in the municipality.
They suggested creating a committee chaired by one Pamela Gardner, a doctor who was - get this! - born in the hospital as well! Oh, and by the way: Gardner is the former B.C. Liberal riding president and a co-author of the memo.
They also suggested putting two B.C. Liberal Burnaby MLAs - arguably two of the weakest MLAs in the entire B.C. Liberal caucus: Harry Bloy and Richard Lee - as well as two other potential B.C. Liberal party candidates on the committee.
The committee has since submitted a report to Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid, but its credibility now appears to be completely shot.
The memo also reveals the B.C. Liberals seem petrified by Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan and his wife Kathy, who of course is the NDP MLA for Burnaby-Deer Lake. They were extremely worried that Kathy Corrigan was going to launch a "save Burnaby Hospital campaign" and thus take ownership of the issue and dooming the B.C. Liberals' electoral chances, presumably forever.
The authors suggest they introduce "a second generation Chinese doctor candidate" for Burnaby - Deer Lake, in order "to champion the issue, it would help seal the deal."
Seal the deal?
