Railgate writedown. It's the passengers, stupid!

.
Pacific Gazette reveals the truth behind the strategy behind the statements behind the agenda ...

Excerpt:

In yesterday's post we mentioned how, in the Fall of 2002, the Campbell/Brown government removed the legal requirement for BC Rail to provide passenger service by steathily changing a 90 year old statute under the stealthy subheading called 'Miscellaneous'.

But, of course, to make it all palatable the Campbell/Brown surrogates had to get out there and start making stuff up about how much money BC Rail's passenger programs were losing, as is demonstrated in the following excerpt from Will McMartin's Tyee piece mentioned above:

And just in case you're wondering....

The amount paid, one can only assume, at least in part, for 'miscellaneous' services rendered to the political party of Gordon Campbell and Martyn Brown is at least.....

$197,170.

I hate to say this but I have a feeling that this trial isn't going to go beyond Monday of next week.
A little more lolly will fall on the table and the deal will be done.
I'm surprised it came this far.

That table's rather in plain view by this point; Tan Yu at least had the decency to put his donation in a brown paper bag. Oh, rather it was money left for "safekeeping", and not actually a party, er, donation.

Well, what else can be said is that while it may possible to buy one man, it many not be possible to buy all three. But my spidey-senses say this isn't what's going on....this isn't about the Campbell regime, this is about protecting CN, and the railway industry in general, from what will be a VERY public bloodletting. The impact on New York and world markets could be nasty. And in the American media, the interplay of political slush funds with drug-world connections is not unsurprising but it's usually conceived of as a Mexican problem - nor are the two connections to shipping lines to railway privatization and agglomeration.

The lid is long off the can of worms; some worms may take longer to pull out of the squirming mass than others. And some worms may have fangs....

for instance, CGHZD, that someone's absence could be accounted for by money; my own money, if there is some intrigue going on with this, would be on it being either a real disease, planted, or threats of violence or retaliation to one's family. It's not always about money, is what I'm meaning....

I hope that Aneal's just got a really bad cold, but if it were H1N1 or anything simple we'd have been told by now, that's what I don't like.....

"Oh, I have a headache" and "Mommy, my tummy's sore" don't count.

But granted, it's not Dave or Aneal or Bobby who should be in the dock anyway. We all know who SHOULD BE. Now it's the question of keeping those un-done investigations in the public eye so that the questions and the FACTS that we all know by now can't be swept aside like so many votes....(which as we know in democracy, are such small currency as to be highly expendable; politicians don't care what the public thinks so long as there are few enough of the public who can organize to get themselves to the polls....nobody wants the public to actually take part in government, not "real politicians" and "real media" anyway.....

The trial MUST go ahead. Period.
 
If the trial does get derailed, then (after a new government is formed) there must be a public inquiry
 
skookum1
if those charged participated in the mess they have been charged with, they deserve to be found guilty. but your point isnt lost; it does matter that others in the same room are, perhaps, more culpable.

as they say, birds of a feather ...
 
I gather criminal charges for a sitting first minister, say in racketeering, fraud, misuse of public assets, conspiracy and more, would be rather a first in the history of parliamentary democracy. Not that the RCMP or the Attorney-General's office or the BC court system have any intention of even looking at the mountain of evidence - circumstantial though it may be - pointing in the Premier's direction.

Oh wait, there was a previous occasion, wasn't there? The railroading of Glen Clark....there was a premier charged for what could be made to seem improper, but really wasn't, while much more serious crimes are being treated by our juridicial establishment as if t hey actually hadn't happened.

It's not accidental either, that that that phrase "the railroading of Glen Clark" is more and more apt all the time...

Bill Bennett, of course, didn't get charged until he was out of office. Amor de Cosmos, though, did get investigated while in office I think, I'd have to review that (the Texada Island Scandal of the 1870s-1880s). But a lot of that was a witchhunt by his competitors (the other newspapermen, and those his paper had made enemies of).

Most BC Premiers had some dirt on them, though......they're human. Really. Really they are. Well, maybe not lately....

Robert Sommers anyone?
 
Well, he was never Premier (despite ambitions) and compared to what we're seeing here, he was the Virgin Mary.....
 
And just for clarification here, I've found the source of why the BC Liberals traditionally stall on releasing all of the documents pertaining to the raid on the bc legislature:

"Speaking on Penner's behalf, B.C. government house leader and Attorney General Mike de Jong said officials with the Ministry of Environment have known about the leak since April 21, and have been working with Chevron "to ascertain what's taking place, why and how to stop it and to make sure it's contained."

When asked why the government had not told the public about the spill, de Jong said the leak is too small to require such disclosure."

If the RCMP hadn't told the BC Liberals that there was corruption going on in their midst in regards to the BC Rail deal, would they have voluntarily told the public, or just fired the miscreants?
 
NVG--

If the Horsemen had not stumbled upon this deal?

Hmmmmmmm......

If I was a betting man I'd take pretty short odds that D. Basi would now have Allan Seckel's job.

And Erik Bornman(n) could very well by now be Warren the K's right hand man in the FedLib Bunker.....

"When asked why the government had not told the public about the spill, de Jong said the leak is too small to require such disclosure."

That Ding Dong DeJong must be a smart man. I mean, how does he know the leak is "too small to require such disclosure," when according to Chevron themselves they know neither the source of the leak, how long it has been leaking, nor how much has leaked. Maybe Chevron should retain Ding Dong, since he apparently has all the answers!

But really we have to blame the people of BC for putting up with this ongoing dog and pony show of lies, foolishness and larceny - apparently just because the NDP are worse......how could they be?
 
de Jong said the leak is too small
---------------------------------
Maybe if he trimmed his gut size a bit, he would then see how big the leak really is.
