BC Criminality exposed
Merv Ritchie at Terrace Daily writes: Just a 'Heads Up' that we also have entered the fray again.
Go HERE for the full story:
... Take this excerpt from a memo by David Basi written on October 31st, 2003, when the BC Liberal Government was attempting to persuade the public the sale of BC Rail was a good thing.
“I told Bob [referring to Bobby Virk] that the article written by Dan Miller supporting the sale of BC Rail that ran in all the Northern Papers was actually written by [Don] Zadravec.” [ That situation is described HERE. http://www.mgcltd.ca/news/sun_200898.pdf ]
This particular memo refers to Liberal insiders along with former PG Mayor Colin Kinsley also manipulating a radio talk show hosted by Ben Meisner. It appears the Liberal team, when they didn’t already control the content of the media, went to great lengths to stack their opinions into the perceived independent audience.
“I will make sure our callers are ready for Vanderzalm and Sharpe (Kinsley gave me the heads up) when they make an appearance on the Miesner show. I am also going to call Ian Sutherland and ask him to challenge Barbara Sharpe on the radio.”
In conclusion if, as a good citizen, you feel you are making your assessments on the management of the Provincial affairs, that your opinions are based on good information provided to you by the local radio, TV and newspapers, you now need to recognize all of that information was and is canned to trick you.
The Province of BC and the vast wealth available to provide all the means necessary to provide for your, your children’s and your grandchildren’s prosperity; their education, healthcare and much more, is being robbed right in front of your eyes.
It is very difficult for one person to compose an article full of all the compelling facts and details to demonstrate and prove the criminality behind the Provincial Government of BC. In fact the Court process which was underway to expose the criminals within the BC Government was quickly shut down, the Government paid to have it stopped. If there was an independent media the demand for a full judicial public inquiry would be on the front page of every newspaper, on the opening segment of every TV news cast and as a lead story on every radio. Currently Global and Black Press remain silent on the fiasco while running even more commentaries and full page editorials authored from the same nest.
Democracy takes time and energy. There is a movement to get rid of Party politics in BC. Both the NDP and the Liberals have outlived their usefulness and have each contributed to the demise of the inherent wealth of BC. It is now up to each of us individually.

Royal City Record - Dec. 24, 2010
This year's big political storm saw the ruling B.C. Liberals collapse under the weight of the bungled HST introduction, assorted lies, the B.C. Rail corruption scandal, environmental degradation and a continuing show of arrogant, dictatorial leadership.
The NDP also bungled, falling into a noisy leadership battle.
But already most of the political commentators seem to have forgotten almost everything but the fun of pre-judging leadership candidates and gossiping about the individuals who are in or who may soon be in the races. Astoundingly, some have concluded that the rotten performance that brought down Gordon Campbell is no more important than the internal bickering of the NDP.
The pundits who clearly favour the right-wing policies of the B.C. Liberals are pushing the skewed notion that all the sins of the party will be washed away in the glorious baptism of a new leader - even though that leader is bound to be a Campbell-trained politician.
I was just wondering what you'd do about a political party which advocates doing nothing ... just allowing events to roll along as if wholesale bribery, for example, is so commonplace that it's "normal",
and another commenter who suggests that if CP and Omnitrax haven't sued the Campbell Gang, then it must mean it's all OK.
My suggestion is to focus our righteous rage upon the issues themselves, beginning with a Public Inquiry into how such a huge, priceless public asset as BC Rail could simply be taken from us ... secretly.
Focus on how that happened, and insist that Gordo's law be changed back to where the FINDINGS are public as well,
and we'll get somewhere. That's my view, anyway.
I"m all for an end to caucus solidarity as an institution, and party discipline of individual MLAs should be forbidden. Even a return to pre-1903 non-party times would be preferable to the warring camps of extremists we see doing nothing but lie, on the one side, and waffle and shuffle their feet, on the other.
Proposal: that the current Independents and those who may join them, from either side of the House or may win seats in the coming election, run under the "Independent Caucus" banner, and candidates using that promise to represent their constituents and refuse party ties. Given the resentment and hostility towards the Punch-and-Judy show of the two-party system as we know it, it's quite possible the Independent Caucus could form a majority of seats; while not a party they could still hold enough sway to nominate/elect one of their number to be Premier and the L-G would have to recognize that (as was the case 1871-1903).
Party disciplne must end, and if it results in half a dozen parties in the House and coalition government, then the resulting cabinet should also be coalition, or multi-party, on the European model; such that cabinet secrecy, when needed, is not used as a shield for partisan misconduct and illegal activities, as we have seen more and more evidence of.
The major media in CAnada constantly deride minority government as weak and unstable; really what they're doing is endorsing autocratic, centralized rule by majorities formed out of electoral minorities. The media, who are corporate in bias, view multi-party government and true democracy as a threat to "stability" - which means more of the same, business as usual, no upsetting the applecart of corporate-political corruption. And that is the real reason they've tried to shove the BC Rail scandal and more into the dustbin of national politics and pretend it's not going on. Until the bias is changed by an example of a coalition/minority/cooperative government, formed out of independent members who make a point of representing their constituents instead of serving as mouthpieces and pet monkeys of their party machine, that is. But most likely the Big Media will try and make life uncomfortable for the applecart-rockers, who are anathema to the political/media establishment in Canada. Every time you hear a politician talking about what a great system the parliamentary system is, that's just someone protecting their own interests, not someone speaking from high principle.
CP and BNSF and other bidders should have sued the BC government and/or CN. That they didn't doesn't mean that "we" can't....OmniTRAX would never have considered such a case, due to their own exposed involvement in influence-buying.....I suspect WMG didn't either, because of whatever they may have had Bruce Clark doing for them....
To be clear, Christy Clark and Mike de Jong have gone on record saying that a public inquiry will NOT BE HELD.
So where is the NDP in all this? Absent as usual.
Please, I pray to god, please please please, People of BC, do not elect an NDP government, anyone than the NDP. They are a far worse breed than the corrupt liberals. They are incompetant. I take corruption any day over incompetance.
If you are a shareholder of either, I would put that question to Management at the AGM. Clearly there should be some responsability there.
