Gordon Campbell and the BC Liberals Attempt to Pull the Rabbit out of the Hat, Again!
The Kash Heed affair, no other politician in BC (except Paul Ramsey) History, would still be a sitting MLA....Anyone else would have resigned, an NDPer, So Cred...Even a Conservative would resign, with Kash Heed and the BC Liberals now hiding again behind the courts, what a shame, what a pathetic shame by an illegal Government .....Christmas eve Kash Heed filed with the Supreme court to nullify BC`s Election act on a whim...Heed is claiming ignorance saying....
I can`t force Satpal Johl(Heed`s Campaign money manager) to re-submit his Election budget and I believe it`s right and won`t change it
I`m paraphrasing but that is the gist of Heed`s defense to Election`s BC rules....Doesn`t Heed get it, his campaign broke the law and got caught, whether Heed knew all the details or not he bears ultimate responsibility, the penalty is his MLASHIP....Heed must resign...PERIOD...
Think of the irony, the Gordon Campbell Liberals used the courts for 7 years in a "Mock BC Rail" to keep prying eyes off the BC Rail theft, then they used the courts to kill the information and kill the BC Rail trial, we were told the story would come out in court and when it was getting close the trial was killed before the second witness testified, a huge settlement cost, no punishment, no answers, we have De Jong, Gordon Campbell and Christy Cluck Clark, Falcon, Abbott and the CKNW stooges all telling us that no BC Rail public inquiry is required, nothing to see, move along and, ......
And now we have Kash Heed and the BC Liberals using the same court that stifled information on BC Rail to stifle and suspend BC Election laws!
No money for an inquiry, nothing to learn, we were told by Mike De Jong that the abuse of process must stop, needless litigation on behalf of Government, wasting tax payer`s dollars, ...You tell me, who is picking up Kash Heed`s legal fees?...BIZZARRO LAND!
So I am bouncing through some blogs and was shocked to see you know who praising the "Apologist" Keith Baldrey...Calling him a straight shooter and upstanding ethical journalist...My Gawd...Who`s drinking the Kool-Aid now?...I won`t dwell on that topic, I said my bit, my question to you is...If someone actually believes Baldrey and his spin, can you trust anyone who believes Baldrey is a "straight Shooter"....Talk about delusional...
My rant earlier about the tsunami and the HST messaging from the BC Liberals and media....I told you about Bill Good thumping his desk and promoting the HST both today and yesterday, well it gets better, I heard on the news(CKNW)...The BC Government has put together a so-called independent panel to study the HST...Report back to Government..And ultimately publish the results of this "Independent" panel to the people of BC by mid April...Well folks, as soon as I heard this story my radar started beeping, I have a few questions..
1)How much is this independent study going to cost.
2)Who pays for this independent study.
3)If the Province pays, does one not pay for the results they want?
OK...Have I got your attention, let me first say friends...Can Gordon Campbell and the BC Liberals insult us anymore than this latest so-called independent study....I did a little cursory research and needed to go no further...This study will be laughable, independence will be a myth, what we have is another Jack Mintz type fraud being perpetrated on the public...Let me explain...you`ll figure it out quickly too...
There will be 4 members on this so-called independent panel...
John Richards from SFU...In case you are not familiar with his work...He writes regularly for no other than The C D HOWE Institue...A right wing neo-con lower business taxes and load the bills on the public think tank, a Fraser Institute clone..
Tracy Redies...President and CEO of Coast Capital Credit Union....And did not the BC Liberals just remove the minimum bank tax in British Columbia, that amounts to a yearly savings of $75 million dollars for BC`s profitable banks.
Jim Dinning..A Alberta Conservative, he held office in Alberta, he is also connected to the Federal Conservatives who brought in our BC HST...Jim Dinning also sits on the boards of Directors for a half dozen big Companies, including energy companies.
And finally..George Morfitt...A man connected to BC Liquor, to BC Gaming, don`t let me bore you...Let`s have the articulate Norman Farrell tell us about George Morfitt
This my friends is another BC Liberal fraud in the making...You have on this so-called independent panel, a CD Howe writer...You have a rich Banker who gained big time over Campbell`s removal of the banking tax...You have an Alberta Conservative that sits on many Board of Directors of big companies, and it`s big companies that benefit from the HST....And we have George Morfitt who has left fingerprints in BC Liberal mud pies all over this Province..
No representative from the building industry...No one from the food industry..No one from border towns, no one representing Joe Average...There is no one on that panel who has money trouble, you have a bunch of people sucking pensions, fingers in pies, multi rich, and or ties to the Government who brought us the HST against our will.
Every BC Liberal should bow their head in shame for offering up this fraud as independent...We truly have entered Bizzarro World!
