Lets talk about the "Greatest place on earth"....Remember Gordon Campbell made that televised speech on the economy last fall, remember he had ten key points, I remember one of them from that speech, Gordon Liar Campbell stated that people (Homeowners) in resource towns(one industry towns) could defer their property taxes if they had at least 20% equity in their home....Well think about that, can you imagine a wife or husband saying to each other....
"Hey honey,good news, we have no jobs,no prospects, our equity in our home is falling because there is no work in this hick town, but the Great Gordon Campbell is letting us "Defer" paying our property taxes for a later year,plus interest!"
Well, is it just me, putting off property taxes because your in the poorhouse wouldn`t make me feel any better, so now Gordon Campbell has done it again, now anybody in any town can defer their taxes IF THEY HAVE CHILDREN under 18 living in the home and IF you have at least 20% equity in home you can defer your property taxes and be charged interest on the transaction, WOW, all I can say is WOW.
What are these people going to do, defer taxes so they can buy a couple of hockey tickets? Take a holiday, buy groceries, so anyways, what a brilliant plan(insert sarcasm here) won`t people sleep better knowing they have a honkin big bill laying in wait...
All I can say is what a stinking joke! A cruel joke, can you imagine what the main stream media would say if the NDP were in charge and ran the economy in to the ground and had to offer up tax deferrals to save people and their homes! Yet, I couldn`t believe it, last night watching Canwest Global the news anchor stated...."Great news for families,the province is allowing people to defer taxes" snip
The Audacity of Canwest Global to give the habitual liar Gordon Campbell a two thumbs up for this tax deferral scheme, well friends, let me say this, another tax deferral scheme is the act of a desperate empty corrupt government that is only capable of shooting blanks! A tax deferral scheme is nothing but Gordon Campbell admitting he has failed this province!
Still on the throne,the con man Jack Poole was mentioned three times in the first 5 minutes,again, the man has more skeletons in his closet than there is in a bone yard yet the government and media are lifting the con man Jack Poole onto a pedestal...Why? To make him a hero in the public`s eye before I uncover the dirt.....Folks, the throne speech was a brutal piece of verbal diarriah.
Here are a few items that weren`t mentioned in the throne speech...Gangs weren`t mentioned,new prisons weren`t mentioned, child poverty wasn`t mentioned, not one word about wild Salmon or fish farms.....Two minutes of the toilet bowl speech was dedicated trying to explain the HST....No mention of getting the forestry industry rolling,nothing, a speech void of thought or new ideas.
And there was more, I listened very carefully and there was in interesting part about site C dam in the Peace River Valley...So here`s the deal, the speech said we need Site C dam (To provide back-up power power to regulate the INTERMITTENT supply of power from Wind power/Run of River power/tidal/solar ...SNIP!
That`s right folks,the speech said that these other forms of power are intermittent and we need Site C to stabilize the intermittent supplies!....Can you see what I`m saying, Gordon Campbell now realizes that he can`t sell any power to anyone without having firm(dam) power to back it up, which begs the question, why are we paying through the nose for private IPP power contracts when we can`t sell it without Site C backing it up? Why not just build Site C and be done with it? Well the answer is simple...Gordon Campbell has completely FOCKED up the energy file in B.C.! ....That`s it in a nut shell....Back the to toilet bowl speech, no longer was 2020 mentioned....Gordon Habitual Liar Campbell is now using the phrase 2030.
That`s right folks, direct from the throne speech...like this Quote "By 2030 when we look back on this period of time we will say the sacrifice was worth it".....And this Quote from the speech "We expect to be a green power powerhouse by 2030".....
You see friends Gordon Campbell has so screwed up that when the hundreds of millions in power losses start this year the spin will be....Well it will pay dividends by 2030 just wait.
That what this whole speech was about, honestly friends when I watched the throne speech I was laughing my face off over what I heard....Like this little diddy...." We are going to bring B.C. Rail back into to government and slowly phase it out" snip......Are you kidding me? Bring it back into government? B.C. Rail hasn`t had a train to play with in 6 years!..B.C. Rail CEO and top executives have been cashing giant pay cheques for years while doing nothing! 6 years and now Campbell is talking slowly dissolving the rail...Its gone...The CEO of B.C. Rail is going to be promoted to be the head of B.C. Hydro....And...The CEO of B.C. Rail knows nothing about BC Hydro, but...Gordon Campbell has to keep paying these B.C. Rail executives to keep them from telling the story,the whole story...What a sick joke!
More on the worst throne speech I have ever heard...Gordon Campbell threatened the federal government to GET RID OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT PROCESS......Gordon Habitual Liar Campbell THREATENED the BCUC(British Columbia utilities commission)....Gordon Campbell want to drill,open pit mine,pipelines, pollute,poison and destroy and he doesn`t want anyone stopping him.
That`s it friends,a empty,void speech,no details,full of threats, nothing to offer anyone but a tax deferral, a desperate Gordon Campbell grasping at straws.Friends...I`m going to go hard after Gordon Campbell...Everyone at CKNW has been put on notice to watch their mouth be cause I`m going after them, Bill Good,Christy clark...Even Sean Leslie.
And guess what..a very astute contributor to this site has noticed the full blown push over the last week, DIANNE WATTS...That`s right folks, that`s who is going for the leadership of the B.C. Liberals...And...It`s Gordon Campbell who wants Dianne Watts as leader of the party..And, There are top cabinet ministers that are downright furious, especially Kevin Falcon and Rich Coleman....It matters not,they are all guilty, and despite Alex Tsakumis pimping for Dianne Watts she will fail, the B.C. Liberal party is in tatters right now,Gordon Campbell has zero clout.
And lastly friends, I was blocked from disrupting the torch relay, I actually wanted to tackle Bill Good and stick the torch up his.....
And one more thing, Leah called me, thanks for the phone call, I had no idea that some of you cared whether I was alive or dead,Leah,keep the faith, we are going to win the war, and thanks to all of you,I have mental images of each and everyone of you, all of you are the reason I write and when Leah called and was so worried about my health and safety, my heart and soul starting beaming, a unexplainable sensation of security and pride overwhelmed me, I felt a mental force field surround me,a force field powered by YOU, all of you, and I thank you so much, and.....Lets go roast some Campbell Liberals!
