"The BC Rail deal stinks." Hansard record of debates in the BC Legislature. April 21, 2004.

.
From Hansard - April 21, 2004.
Jenny Kwan, MLA (NDP), Paul Nettleton (Independent MLA for Prince George-Omineca and disillusioned BC Liberal), Kevin Falcon (Minister of Transportation) and Geoff Plant (Attorney-General).

B.C. RAIL AGREEMENT WITH CN RAIL
AND FIRST NATIONS CONSULTATION

P. Nettleton: Further to my question from earlier this week regarding the giveaway sale of B.C. Rail and the concerns raised by the CSTC chief, Harry Pierreā€¦. In his letter I quoted, he goes on to say: "You should be aware that despite the recent amendments to the British Columbia Railway (Revitalization) Amendment Act, 2003, or Bill 89, a change in control or a transfer of rail tenures in the absence of the adequate consultation and accommodation with CSTC members is not only vulnerable to a legal challenge but will certainly pass a defective title which would become a liability to the acquiring company."

My question is: in this government's desperation to push this deal through, no matter what, has the minister considered the consequences of defective title being passed to CN Rail and the implications not only for CN but also for the provincial government, and its cumulative effect on the people of B.C.?

Let's face it: the government's B.C. Rail deal stinks. From every angle it was a bad deal when the Premier first suggested it, and it's an even worse deal now.

Interjections.

Mr. Speaker: Order, please.

P. Nettleton: Will the minister now do the right thing and scrap the deal while he has a chance?

What a god-awful month April 2004.
I recall the RCMP stating that they seized over M10$ from an unusual form of c/o fund raising! Jamie Graham said it was terrorism, fat ass Coleman said the chief over spoke, and that it had nothing to do with terrorism.US authorities at first said there was need for a terror alert, then retracted that statement.
IT IS STILL TO THIS DAY THE PROCEEDS OF ORGANISED RAPE!
Police falisifing the indenties of unsuspecting Canadians.
There are medis who know of this but because 'they' can hide behind, 'it's a mater of national security' for years, if not forever, the turth and the victims get left behind.

THIS IS THE CANADA THAT I KNOW.
