Listening to the throne speech, if one didn't know better, if one believed even half of it, millions would be building statues and monuments province-wide honoring the greatest leader the world, let alone British Columbia has ever seen....The honorable Premier Christy Clark..
Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon, I wonder how she feels tonight, did she sterilize her mouth with antiseptic mouthwash to remove the bitter taste of real-life irony, or knock back a pint of tequila to numb her mind. I understand that people have certain duties related to their job and they just can't say no to performing the most distasteful acts..
However, is it morally acceptable for someone with such a distinguished title, for someone held in the highest regard to fumigate the airwaves with a litany of what I call lies..
For starters, the same Lieutenant Governor delivered the pre-election 2013 throne speech...a throne speech where the government promised untold wealth from LNG, debt free BC, sales tax elimination, monies flowing into the treasury so fast that special untouchable prosperity funds had to be created and secured for future generations...
Yet the honorable Lieutenant Governor doesn't live in a box, or a shoe, she doesn't just appear by rubbing a magic lantern, she is one of us, a BCer...
Judith Guichon can see for herself that Christy Clark clawed bus passes from the disabled, MSP went up everyone of Christy Clark's 4 years as premier, BC Hydro went up every year, as did BC Ferry rates, ICBC rates, over the last 4 years the majority of BCers saw their economic viability diminish, millions of British Columbians saw the dream of home ownership vanish before their eyes, while real estate promoters filled the BC Liberal coffers to the brim...
I mentioned building monuments honouring Christy Clark for everything she's done....for under her administration a poorly run seniors care system deteriorated even further, I didn't think that was possible, understaffed, drug the elderly and mentally kill them off behind blue curtains, outsource seniors to another realm, the spirit world....
School capital requirements ignored for over a decade, children bursting at the seams in Surrey are offered temporary portables.....While election promises from 10 years earlier, seismic upgrades are doled out by political points, can it win the BC Liberals a riding, if not the seismic upgrades are pushed off, again and again and again.....playing politics and Russian roulette with the live's of children is one sick game..
The 2017 throne speech was riddled with trickery...suggesting the BC Government was waiting for long sought out guidance from the Supreme court as to how to proceed forward with student needs, shameful, ..the lieutenant governor knew full well that Christy Clark took children to the hill and was ordered by law to repair the damage done..
Judith Guichon knows of the disgrace of the fired health workers, and the taking of a man's life, the 2 year long lie of an RCMP investigation that never was......
and story after story of children dying in the care of Government, scathing report after scathing report ignored, hand wringing, while great leader Christy Clark has confidence in her chosen cabinet ministers......personally, I don't blame Stephanie Cadieux, she has zero authority, she is merely the face of the ministry, a ministry gutted, gutted by Gordon Campbell and Christy Clark
Can Judith Guichon see what I see, a thousand BCers lined up in a row dead from Fentanyl, a horrible drug being shipped in from China, the throne speech suggested the BC Liberals were moving mountains to stop the carnage, yet, because it was the opposition NDP that brought forward a year ago a legislative Bill to ban pill-presses, the ruling Christy Clark Liberals voted it down....for no other reason than politics, even with hundreds dying every month it's always political gotcha games with Christy, we just had a full week of Christy Clark lying about a computer hack that never happened, even worse, she blamed a man and a party who she knew had nothing to do with it, sad...political games always, whether they be children, seniors, or just regular people, everything is through a political lens..
For years in the legislature and on the campaign trail Christy Clark blamed the NDP for a mining slowdown in the 90s, somehow the NDP drove down the world commodity prices, but when the promised LNG riches never accrued, it's the fault of economic headwinds beyond our control..
It's always someone else's fault ....Christy Clark has never taken responsibility for anything her entire life, a life spent doing nothing but feeding off the public trough...
A $million dollars in 4 years on photographers....photoshopping, oyster bars, private flights and $80 k yearly stipends while bus passes are clawed back from the disabled earning less than a $1000 per month..
I'll have more to say on this 2017 election year throne speech a little later on,,,
Oh...you know that old saying, beware of Greeks bearing gifts....Christy Clark is so unpopular she is about to send everyone in BC a cheque before the election...Not a tax cut, a pre-election cheque for everyone..
Anyway, I have a monument to go build..
and it has nothing to do with Christy Clark.
It's for all those that need not have been killed...
I love you British Columbia....Time for change
