Feeding time ending

Alex Tsakumis has the slow cooker warmed. The hogs might soon be shredded pork.


Pigs at the trough will start to squeal. Don't miss the story of how British Columbia's government was hijacked by a handful of powerful insiders. Even the mainstream media - well, maybe the CBC - cannot ignore this.

Christy Clark Must Resign as Premier of British Columbia (Part I): The Case of the ‘Stolen’ PIN Numbers Finally Revealed.

Why government leaders deserve big bucks.

    1. Mr Smart was worried about living on one income but if he and his wife both lose their positions of public trust--both are paid by tax payers--then his worries will have been for naught. The minimum wage has gone up but social assistance has been eroded and legal aid is non-existent. Sucks to be a commoner in BC.

  2. Brilliant post Norm. You and Alex Tsakumis are the drummers of truth. Am looking forward to Vaughan, Mike and Keith's reporting re this.

    1. As expected, Palmer, Smyth and Baldrey are giving the premier a free pass. Not a byte of news published...

  3. This makes Bingo-Gate and Backporch-Gate look so laughable. Oh, how far we've fallen!

  4. Every CBC program east of the Rockies and independent media outside of BC will be getting links to this story. Someone must investigate this who does not have vested personal and professional interests in the outcome--someone outside BC must help us restore our democracy. Is the Premier's chair for sale?

  6. It’s very possible the BC Liberals would launch an official investigation into this story. At least Falcon & Abbott should demand it, given fraudulent Indo vote stacking which occurred in the Clark camp. Conceivably, Clark could be asked to step down until the facts are known. Naturally, the party would want to look closely at Alex’s reconstruction of events and confirm the accounts of what happened.

    On the other hand, they could

    1. Remove Clark from caucus immediately and appoint Falcon as premier.

    2. Paper over the whole affair and hope the BCTF issue will bolster their standing in the polls.

    We anxiously await the “closer” story from Alex. He should be careful. But we are all in his camp.

  7. AGT has been assembling the pieces to this story over a rather long time. The main theme is quite well known among insiders but no one in the MSM has the guts to touch it. I suspect Alex will still have more evidence than what he discloses this week so the wrongdoers prefer to avoid acknowledgement or response. False denials will rebound and prove them conscious liars. AGT has his ducks in a row and, when the whole story emerges, many important (or self-important) folks will be embarrassed.

  8. MSM have substantially more legal and financial resources at their disposal than individuals like AGT. Without insider knowledge we can only assume that either Postmedia Network has bowed to intimidation by the premier's office and has muzzled the reporters, or that they lack the motivation to do the hard digging to put out a detailed expose. A few column inches per day will do? Woodward & Bernstein they are not.

    Folks like AGT do it on their own dime, and one expects there is little financial reward. We in BC owe AGT a debt of gratitude, who "does the right thing", very likely because of self motivation, guts, intensity and raw ability. Hopefully AGT will be rewarded someday.

    1. He and others seeking higher standards of ethics and accountability would be rewarded sufficiently by a sense of satisfaction when the public demands high principled behaviour from all leaders.

      In British Columbia, the political battle is not between left and right. It is between right and wrong.

  9. This story is being forwarded to media outlets far and wide and Elections BC by as many British Columbians as possible. It needs a full investigation to be proven or disproven. Democracy requires this much and so much more. Thanks to you bloggers--Norm, Alex, Harvey!

  10. Norm, I admit to my naiveté politically but why has the media denied reporting on this scandal?

  11. You are not naive because that is one of the most significant questions that could be asked. I believe the reasons are mixed, ranging from simple jealousy and unwillingness to admit that contributors with few resources have scooped them to corrupt influence of plutocrats who hold economic and political power and establish the communication agendas..

    Concentrated ownership of media is fundamental. For example, the Shaw family behind Global TV, Corus Radio, etc. owe their fortune to franchises allowed by politicians. There is a quid pro quo that must be delivered and that is to support the status quo.

    Journalists, editors, commentators each say, "No one tells me what to report" (Bill Good's favourite) but of course, these people hold their jobs by knowing not to displease the owners. Media people who should leading the conversation have grown dependent on their own commercial relationships. That's why I've repeatedly written about Vaughn Palmer's side business giving paid speeches to business groups for several thousand dollars per event. Why would he then go away and offend those people that fill his pockets.

    Organizations such as the Fraser Institute, business groups, "taxpayer" organizations etc. spend millions each year spreading their points of view and serving the interests of their funders.

    BC Liberals have rewarded their supporters handsomely. It's a system of one hand washing another.

  12. To everyone who is sending links to this and other Clark stories to the Canadian media and government agencies, please keep a copy of the emails you send for future inquiries. The delays and obfuscation are as much the story as the acts themselves. Aiding, spinning, ignoring, and potentially profiting from Government in this way cannot continue or it won't matter who is elected the results, over time, will always be the same.

  13. Re: obfuscation—I did send Vaughn Palmer an email asking why no one in the media was responding to Alex's revelations in the past week and he did not reply.
    I will add that I have emailed Vaughn twice on other questions and he answered within a couple of hours.

  14. Emails and tweets can go to world news and democracy organizations as well as Canadian ones. All the Atwal and BC Rail information is there on Alex's site. The longer the CBC and the corporate media wait, the more info comes to light... making the politicians, bureaucrats and media all complicit. The comments are full of thwarted attempts to prompt the media to respond in a dutiful investigative manner. This will make for a very colourful public inquiry and any number of books and documentaries.
