Double standard? Of course!

No charges will be laid against the Mount Polley Mine Corporation, owned by Imperial Metals, for the collapse of a tailings impoundment on August 4, 2014, that sent an estimated 24 million cubic metres of mining waste into the pristine waters of Quesnel Lake.

The incident, considered one of the worst mining disasters in Canadian history, was simply the result of “poor practices,” according to B.C. chief inspector of mines, Al Hoffman, and not due to “non-compliances.”

  1. The courts and government, they are completely corrupt, made corrupt by politicians who do nothing and let bureaucrats run government.

    Thus generous friends to politicians and bureaucrats get a free pass in BC with the law, while the average person is shaken down by latter day grifters now called judges and bylaw officers.

    More fines means more revenue for the clown car types who run government.

    It will end very badly, very badly indeed.

  2. Touchy subject for most, however Mr.Harper did do something that has reigned in bylaw and other legislation which some would believe gives far too much power to the employees of government. The Conservatives did get a small amendment into our constitution which elevates the rights of the average citizen above the rights of governance. This was used by an old friend of mine recently in a Federal case in Richmond (a federal judge heard the case in Richmond). This case has been won by my friend and it was against the city of Richmond and the ALC Provincial employees. The Gestapo like tactics used on this charming friend and his wife by civic bylaw officers and Provincial ALC employees were heavy handed, over the top and the grounds for the search warrant were suspicious to say the least. This case will soon proceed to a penalty phase, this will result in many civic & Provincial employees and should contain a few elected ones as well. Hopefully it opens the eyes of the media to the ridiculous level of governance and the plethora of law that is counter to our constitution as it stands today. Once government decides to apply law selectively, I suggest the law is not valuable to anyone and actually impedes the fair administration of justice. There are many municipal & Provincial statutes which contravene this simple principle of equality under law. There should be many civic politicians and management types quivering in their shoes for some of the blatantly illegal actions they have undertaken in regards to enforcing municipal & Provincial laws.
