A lawyer for the BC Teachers Federations alleges the province never planned to bargain in “good faith” for a new collective agreement – a strategy that may go all the way to the premier’s office.
Expanding on revelations accusing government negotiators of trying to provoke strike action by union members, union lawyer John Rogers says there’s proof discussions were pre-determined to never restore court-ordered provisions, including class size composition.
He argues in B.C. Supreme Court that cabinet documents obtained using Freedom of Information requests include exchanges reaching right into Premier Christy Clark’s office and her inner circle of advisors, including John Dyble and Mike McDonald.
Lawyers for the provincial government have yet to address BCTF claims good faith standards were violated.
Their closing arguments could start Tuesday afternoon.
Mike MacDonald and John Dyble, the names should be familiar to most of you, Mike MacDonald ran Christy Clark`s lie -filled election campaign and John Dyble, besides being a employee of Christy Clark`s office was Christy Clark`s choice to conduct and whitewash the ethnicgate scandal review..
Those who read this site regularly, none of this will shock you, it was all reported here, Christy Clark wanted a public pissing contest with teachers...
CKNW has reported this story today on their news, however, CKNW was complicit and encouraging, for years Bill Good attacked teachers on his show, almost every morning Gordon Campbell`s freak brother Michael Campbell attacked teachers, Christy Clark when on radio attacked teachers practically everyday....
I am so sick of the media and their after the fact reporting of what was so obvious at the time, meaning in the present, Christy Clark is an habitual liar, all BC Liberals are, the media, cknw, Vaughn Palmer, Michael Smyth, Global news, a bunch of self-serving gutless rats, a bunch of ball-less club members..
Take Vaughn Palmer`s article today on the Pacific caron trust, if one read his story you`ld think the Pacific Carbon Trust was finished, it isn`t, they moved the scam in house so Rich Coleman can give those monies collected to LNG companies..Vaughn Palmer is a snake in the grass piece of trash..
I stated something the other day, I said I would never mention Rob Ford again, I have to break that promise, break it ever so slightly, Rob Ford is a sleezy lying piece of trash...The reason I am breaking that promise is to make the point about how media operates in this country, either you are a club member or they will go after you..
Rob Ford did many interviews with big-name media personalities, and he lied his face off..
A story showed up in the big daily newspapers today, titled..
"Rob Ford's unchecked lies to Peter Mansbridge"
Clearly the media is upset with Rob Ford, and that`s justified, however..
Gordon Campbell blatantly lied his face off in interviews, Colin Hansen lied his face off all through the HST FIASCO..
Mike De Jong lied his face off about the Basi/Virk payoff and
And Christy Clark lied her face off through the John Dyble investigated ethnicgate scandal..Christy lied her face off about Kim Haakstad, Christy Clark lied about new hospital funding for the interior, she lied her face off about LNG..About job creation, Christy Clark lied her face off all through the run-up and the election writ period itself..I and other bloggers pointed out those lies point by point as they happened...
As for our mainstream media, nope, they were too busy counting Adrian Dix memo-gate advertising dollars..
Below is a post highlighting exactly what Christy Clark and the BC Liberals were up too..a story posted last January, a post with links to stories from years earlier highlighting the same thing.
And..Christy Clark got away with with lying her face off because our big-time mainstream media allowed it, they wanted her and the BC Liberals to win..And because most of the electorate are ill-informed as to the real story..As is going on with BC Ferries, the big lie..
Bow your head in shame media..
That linked story above by William Wolfe Wylie where he directly points out each individual lie of Rob Ford..
There should have been hundreds of similar stories pointing out blatant lies made by Gordon Campbell, De Jong, Colin Hansen, Rich Coleman and hundreds of stories pointing out Christy Clark`s blatant bullshitting lies..
I wrote about Christy Clark wanting to lift her leg and spray urine on teachers, I wrote about it at the time, in the present, not after the fact, not after the election....You don`t need freedom of information and documents to point out the apparent, the obvious..
Our gutless media has made it a habit, made a habit out of ignoring the facts, even when those facts are as glaring as Rob Ford`s lies
The below post was written almost a year ago, read the title...How many times must this blogger embarrass the pros, ?

Christy Clark`s Public Pissing Contest Gambit Exposed
UPDATED-January 26th/2012...At bottom.
BCTF President Susan Lambert says the Premier's 10-year contract plan is a non-starter, because it asks teachers to give up the right to bargain class size/composition and salary/compensation.
I just listened to Susan Lambert, she was responding to Christy Clark`s musing about a 10 year deal between the province and the teachers union, Susan Lambert`s above statement is all you need to know about non-elected premier Clark`s proposal..
Standing beside Clark is one of the most useless BC Liberals of all time, Don pharmaceutical Mcrae,
I wrote a post some time ago, it was titled, Christy Clark, Woman of the 90`s
Here is an excerpt from that post..
"Christy Clark is old, tired, ad nauseum, she hasn`t progressed into the future and is stuck in a time warp somewhere around 1996, she doesn`t want to get along, Christy Clark wants to refight fast ferries, unions, schools, health care, and the environment, there is no point fighting those things Christy, they died years ago, where were you? And as you noticed from my last post, Christy Clark can lie with professional ease, she can argue not knowing any facts and or choosing to ignore them, what comes out of her mouth is anti ndp venom and hyperbole from the 90s....We need a leader of the future, not a prima donna who failed to finish anything she started, we don`t need another liar and time warp victim...."
I read Keith Baldrey`s latest column in the Burnaby now, he talks about how Christy Clark wants a public fight with Adrian Dix, how Christy is angry that Adrian won`t come out and play on the public stage..
My post.... Christy Clark, woman of the 90`s...Was a story about Christy Clark being a little school girl, stuck, frozen in time, Christy wants to fight battles that don`t exist anymore, Clark has always hated teachers, her Dad was a teacher, I`m not sure what spawned her hatred, maybe she hated her father, maybe because she had poor grades, maybe her hatred of teachers began after she quit S-F-U, ..As you know, she was caught cheating on student elections, after new student elections, Christy Clark lost badly, her fellow students saw Christy for what she was, an habitual cheater and liar...The stunning story based on actual transcript is here..
Christy Clark caught cheating on student elections, Clark quits S-F-U after fellow students reject her and her cheating ways
Christy Clark used her flirting ways to marry money and launch her political career, she joined the BC Liberal party and won a seat in Port Moody.
Gordon Campbell selected Christy to be education minister, and the rest is history, Clark put her name on Bills that were illegal, Bills that stripped teachers of all rights, a Bill that the supreme court of Canada ruled illegal, against the charter if rights, just one of many illegal human right stripping Bills that came out of the BC Liberal hierarchy...
Last night our big daily newspapers were promoting Clark`s 10 year teacher/labour peace deal, no details were put forward, today we learn that the details were/is more of the same treachery Christy Clark employed in 2001..This proposal is nothing but an election gambit ..
Let me be perfectly clear, Christy Clark when she was a radio host on cknw, she did more segments bashing teachers than anything else, hundreds of segments attacking educators, attacking the teacher`s union, BCTF leadership, like a dog with a bone Christy couldn`t let it go, my gut tells me her attack against education and teachers was personal, maybe because she failed in school, never graduated, poor grades, a school drop out...
The bottom line, Christy Clark wants to lift her leg and spray urine on teachers, on unions, on the ndp, Clark wants a public pissing contest with teachers for she believes it`s a winning strategy, right versus left, Clark has never won a battle with logic or skill, she has always used ideology and rancor, and on radio the kill button to win arguments..
Jim Shepard starting a pissing contest, Keith Baldrey in his column describes Christy Clark as wanting a loud vocal us versus them pissing contest, Adrian Dix is smart to not want to play with an habitual liar and cheater..
Christy Clark is indeed a woman stuck in the 90`s, she stopped learning in the 90`s, she quit school in the 90`s, her messaging is from the 90`s, Jim Shepard`s attack ads are from the 90`s..
Christy, we see right through you, this gambit with the teachers is an election ploy, present the teachers with an offer they must refuse, then use your media buddies to play up the teachers being left wingers with Adrian Dix and you being rightwing standing with free enterprisers..
Well guess what Christy Clark, I knew this ploy was coming last year, I wrote about it, in fact is was another tired old Social Credit Dinosaur who gave you this advice, the name of that dinosaur..
BOB PLECAS..from my post written February 21/2012.
Yes indeed, Bob Plecas fearing the worst scenario, fearing an end to public service dollars being funneled to his corporate elite, fearing an end to chronic under-funding of schools, of justice of seniors care, fearing an end of corporate largesse handouts has come out swinging, come out advising, a tired oldman has crawled out from his rock to advise Christy Clark to be deceptive, to dictate, to confuse, to act as a single solo all encompassing power broker and run rough shot over anyone and everything that gets in way of the BC Corporate Liberals self perceived right to rule British Columbia, in other words Bob Plecas wants Christy Clark to act like Gordon Campbell and Stephen Harper but with a more Hitler-esque flair...Let`s have a look at Bob Plecas`s advice to Christy Clark....
"Today, Premier Christy Clark faces three problems.
1. The Campbell legacy will not go away. While it was the perceived deceit over the harmonized sales tax that brought him down, he was rap-idly losing conservative support by moving the party to the left, supporting the carbon tax and first nations settlements. The tax fiasco proved the last straw for conservative anti-tax voters."
Let`s tear this tired old conman apart, first off Mr.Plecas, it wasn`t "Perceived deceit" it was downright deliberate deception, Campbell lied about the HST, he lied about a $4billion dollar deficit, he cooked the books and as for Gordon Campbell`s phony carbon tax, all that scam tax did was reward corporations for polluting and strip dollars from schools, students, hospitals and the like, that carbon tax didn`t take 1 gram of carbon out of the air....And as for "supporting First Nation settlements".....That comment is so racist if you were in front of me I would slap your saggy face, the word settlement implies that we were here first, if anyone has settlements in British Columbia it`s white man, not First Nations, as as for Campbell accommodating First Nations no such thing happened, his reconciliation act died a swift death in the legislature from complaints from corporate racists like you..
3." Clark's biggest challenge does not lie on the left, it lies on her right. She is a well-known federal Liberal, and the federal Conservatives are wary of her. There is great suspicion in Ottawa about her loyalties, and also among Conservatives in B.C."
Yes indeed Bob, let`s paint a little black moustache under Christy Clark`s nose and pretend she`s a Federal Conservative hell bent on scorched earth policies, let`s have Christy Clark hire two prominent Stephen Harper top staffers to fill staff positions in Christy Clark`s inner circle....Hmmmm, infact let`s try and confuse the voters....
"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."
So Mr Plecas, John Cummins is a long-time Federal Conservative, with Conservative beliefs, and according to you....You want Christy Clark to use all her radio talk show host honed communication skills to call John Cummins an Indian hater and a man who hates Gay, Lesbian and transgender people....Isn`t that a Conservative trait Bob? On one hand you want Christy Clark to lose her Federal Liberal roots and embrace Conservatism and on the other hand you want her to attack a long-time elected Federal Conservative, seems to me Bob Plecas that you want to create a name-calling labeling hatefest with mud flinging every direction and see what sticks...Classy dude you are, welcome to the 21st century, how did that cryogenic freezing work out for you...
"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"
Really Bob, you mean memo-gate, you mean the fact that Adrian has been elected 2 times by a large majority of his constituents in that riding, you mean you missed the fact that every contender against Dix raised memo-gate as an issue, and let me guess, you missed all those risky Dix ads ran by the Federal Liberal/Federal Conservative/BC Christy party, you must remember, they ran every hour on cknw, on Global news, on Spike TV, in the newspaper, ads attempting to portray Adrian Dix as ...Risky, not to be trusted, ads reminding people that Adrian as young man back-dated a memo but according to the BC Christy party Adrian Dix wasn`t a staffer but he was secretly premier of BC in the 90`s, the best kept secret in BC History...Yes indeed, obviously Bob Plecas you were still in a state of cryogenic freezing when those ads were running.
"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."
Well Bobby Plecas, you want Christy Clark to change course, you admit that she can`t join John Cummins because after all, John is a homosexual hating, indian village burning dyed in the wool Federal Conservative, so what is your secondary plan?....Let`s have a look...
"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"
Well Bobby Plecas, I`m glad you ADMITTED that BC takes all the risk and receives ZERO benefit....... That strategy probably isn`t too smart....Considering the entire town including city council of Terrace has signed up against Enbridge and Alberta, as have Prince Rupert and the Queen Charlotte regional district...That`3 ridings gone Bobby Plecas, care for another 82?
"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."
Well Bobby Plecas, you seem to like the Campbell/Harper approach..
Legislate, legislate, legislate and terminate, gee that really does sound rather Hitler-esque to me..
Yet I notice when it comes to your suggestion about legislating a new modest pension plan for MLA`s and staff you threw in little self preservation detail..."For new hires"....Meaning how dare anyone touch your bloated public trough pension....And as for bonuses for the heads of crown corporations and deputy ministers, how do you think the BC Liberals managed to keep the whistleblowers from talking...
"Bob Plecas is a former deputy minister in several previous B.C. governments and ministries"
I can see right through you Christy Clark, so can the voting public..
As for you lifting your leg and spraying urine on everyone..
Judging from these comments, nobody is buying Christy`s bullshit..
Oh, and I see the BC Liberal public affairs bureau is messing around with cknw`s poll of the day, priceless...
CKNW's Question of the Day
Will the new provincial education framework finally secure labour peace between the government and the BCTF?
Christy, maybe you should call Richard Branson and accept his offer, nothing would please us more..
UPDATED HERE--January 26th/2013
The BCTF and the employer just nullified Christy Clark`s election gambit, her attempt to create a US VERSUS THEM pre-election..
The Teachers union, BCTF and the employer hammered out a negotiating framework..
The reason why Clark and her Liberal GANG brought this 10 year deal BS out now, because the BCTF was already smoothing out a negotiating framework..
The new negotiating deal means....It means Christy Clark` dropped nother dud bomb, her proposal is now..NULL and VOID..
here`s the link..
Ha HA...Priceless...Adios Christy Clucking Clark
