BC the land of Fantasy Gardens once again

I planned to keep an eye on the BC Liberal throne speech and add my comments about Premier Photo Op's pre-election prescription for prosperity. I won't bother though because Vaughn Palmer wrote one paragraph that says everything that needs to be said.

Here is Palmer's version of Clark's throne speech, sans puffery:
"Listen up, voters. We're going to build a bunch of LNG terminals, create umpteen jobs, raise a zillion dollars, eliminate the sales tax, wipe out the provincial debt and we can all live happily ever after."

  1. I believe Mr. Palmer left out the part about 'governing by facebook'.


  2. Isn't amazing that they are talking about getting rid of the PST? Had voters voted "no" to retain the HST, surely, they would not even considered getting rid of it in spite of LNG revenue? Would they get rid of such a superior and efficient tax? Would they have dared?

    I realize that my comments are hypothetical.....

  3. now lets have another toke of b.c.'s best export and go back to sleep. the budget must have been created while they were engaging in b.c.'s best export.

  4. Bullshit shoveler of bcFebruary 16, 2013 at 1:59 AM

    Was Cristy wearing red shoes so she would be able to click her heels , and return from the land of OZ

  5. Isn't this whole thing about debt?

    BC has a massive debt, which the govt can only seem to deal with by growing the GDP. Not going to work.

    LNG seems just desperation, wishful thinking.

  6. Geez Norm you may be out of the province when the election writ drops. The government could fall as early as next week. Can't happen soon enough for me.

  7. Sounds like things in BC Lieberal land are just gettin warmed up! Over at AGT's site read the latest installment of the press secretary Chin insulting both Baldrey and Palmer at one go. Not to mention the inside scoop on cabinet squabbles, and people walking out of meetings in disgust..

    Ain't political life grand here in BC!

  8. I can sum it up in one word. BULLSHIT.Please excuse my choice of words, but it sums it up easily and succinctly.

  9. So while people across BC honour "Pink Shirt" day in recognition of anti-bullying, Premier Christy Clark's own team member takes bullying to a whole new level. Liberal MLA Kevin Krueger responded to a request for an investigation into the Liberal MLA Pat Bell scandal by sending an email to the author of that request. Here is a copy of that email:
    From: Krueger.MLA, Kevin
    Date: Tue, Feb 26, 2013 at 4:01 PM
    Subject: The Honourable Pat Bell
    To: "" , "Krueger.MLA, Kevin"

    Attention: B.C. Cons:
    Mr. Cummins, and everybody involved in this news release, are “Unmitigated” MORONS to have published such crap as this.
    Pat Bell is beloved in Prince George, for good reason. There is not ONE of you scum worthy to tie his shoes – nor tall enough.
    What idiots you are.
    Kevin Krueger, MLA

    I wonder if Christy will defend Kevin Krueger or does she believe, "scum","Morons" & idiots are what people should be calling each other ?

  10. Boy, Norm, you sure picked the wrong time to go on a holiday....

  11. There is nothing to see here! move along people!
    Rossk is writing doubletime so you can relax in the belief that there will be plenty to write about when you get home
    If you need a book to read , may I kindly recomend A fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry.
