I do recall Christy Clark stating during the 2013 election writ period that a fall(2013) legislative session would be held, in fact Christy Clark said fall sessions would be a regular occurrence in British Columbia, and now that the electorate has granted the BC Liberals another term in power those fall session promises made by Christy have been tossed aside, thrown into the gutter, ....and if one asks the Liberals about their statements confirming fall sessions will be held..all that can be heard is banter like this..
"what, who, me, you mean us, the ruling Government holding fall sessions, are you serious, you actually believed that load of hoo...y...cmon, we as Government have lied about holding fall sessions for years..."
And so it goes, the start of a 4 year term in power and Christy Clark cancels out her first legislative session, and who can blame her, Keith Baldrey, Vaughn Palmer, Sean Leslie, Bill Good and the other MSM stooges have talked in terms as business as usual, meaning who cares, ....Meaning the corporate owned media doesn`t care to make it an issue..
Deja vu...Time to redo 2001 to 2013 only this time ....Goddamn it we`ll do it right..
Before we get started, let me say....Thanks Adrian Dix, on behalf of teachers, on behalf of seniors dying by the truckload in dirty uncleaned care homes, on behalf of hydro electric customers and all those needing or soon to be needing healthcare, a big rip-roaring thank you from all of us to you and your friends Adrian...Well done, give my regards to Topp, Kool and O`brien...And thanks for giving us all a deja vu decade to relive...
Christy Clark in 2001 started the hatchet job on the teachers, however, she never did get to shove the knife deep in their back, that was then, this is now...
Time to highlight some fighting words and strange interpretations from our ever bright-eyed media ..
"B.C.'s education minister is proposing to give teachers back the right to strike with legislative amendments planned for the next time the legislature sits, part of an effort to reach a 10-year contract agreement.....
But Fassbender announced Wednesday that group has been pushed aside, and he named Michael Marchbank, CEO of the Health Employers' Association of British Columbia, the public administrator of the school employers' association, too.
Marchbank will assume all responsibilities of the BCPSEA board of directors.
The contract with teachers expired at the end of June.
In January, Premier Christy Clark promised her government would make an effort to secure lasting peace with a long-term contract agreement, and an attempt to reach a 10-year agreement with teachers was part of the Liberal's election platform.
April 2011...The supreme court gave the BC Liberals 1 year to fix their illegal bill, that was 2 years and 3 months ago and today...
And today Fassbender states that he is "pushing aside"...
Ensuring ministry programs and activities are focused on achieving government's vision of a strong economy and secure tomorrow.
- Confirming government's core responsibilities and eliminating programs that could provide better service at less cost through alternative service delivery models.
- Ensuring public-sector management wage levels are appropriate.
I would like to remind you that in 2001 Gordon Campbell did complete core reviews on all crowns, ministries, that resulted in illegal bills written, legislation that attacked the HEU, the BCTF, both bills ruled illegal...The start of outsourced hospital services, privatization, outsourced hospital and care-home cleaning, that has led to hundreds, thousands of needless deaths, including 9 who died in recent days of norovirus..
Outsourcing is killing your parents...
Near 100 hundred elderly were killed at Burnaby hospital from germs, from outbreaks, all caused by a lack of proper cleaning, a service the BC Liberals outsourced, my dad was one of them..
So, in 2001 Gordo and Christy attacked teachers and the HEU and conducted core reviews, now after 12 years of BC Liberal rule Christy clark is attacking teachers, writing illegal bills and not holding fall sessions, while starting a new round of core reviews..
More privatization, more outsourcing, more trickery and the mainstream media could care less, who needs a fall session, nothing going on here, same old same old, move along, nothing to see...right media, the three blind mice..
Christy Clark is not capable, she is following the same script Gordon Campbell did, it`s as close as she can come to thinking, she thunk about doing what Gordo did..now that`s leadership..
LNG, perhaps you wondered why I haven`t written anything, because there is nothing going on, the world LNG players are frozen in their tracks, Japan restarting their nuclear facilities and ocean methane hydrates has the big boys shaking in their boots..Everything is in limbo,
Christy`s LNG dreams are over, meaning coleman and his ministry of LNG has nothing to do, no legislation to bring forth, no announcements, all the core reviews, the audits, the nickel and diming of teachers, cutting front line workers is all for naught..
Because we have a $170 billion dollar debt, a debt rising by $5 billion dollars per year and there is no plan B...Every BC Liberal economic disaster was to be fixed with LNG revenue, there will be nothing online before 2021, at the earliest, and more likely than not nothing online at all..Nobody asked what we would do if LNG was a bust..
And now no questions will be asked or answered until next year..
Well Christy Clark....Gordon Muir Campbell, his golden decade... he dedicated each year to something or someone special in his throne speech...He had a year of the child...the year of science, the year of climate change, the year of education, he had a year dedicated to seniors too..your throne speech for 2013 was the year of LNG, so you said...perhaps your 2014 throne speech will be dedicated to the year of the senior(again)...C difficile, norovirus and wheelchair fees not withstanding..or maybe another year for LNG, heck, why not another year of child....After all, we are number 1 in child poverty in Canada, again,
"B.C.'s child and youth advocacy coalition First Call says newly released Statistics Canada numbers reveal B.C.'s child-poverty rate rose to 11.3 per cent in 2011, up from 10.5 per cent in 2010.
First call says the figures show that B.C. has had the worst child-poverty rate in Canada for nine out of the past 10 years among the provinces, with B.C. rising above last place only once in 2010."
The more things change the more they stay the same....
Welcome to 2001.....Again.
