This blundering fool is barely out of the starting gate as the new leader of the BC Liberals and appears to be anti everything Horgan stands for. He is afraid to stand up for the citizens of British Columbia on issues like protecting our water, wildlife, or beach’s and oceans from being destroyed by tar sands bitumen. Horgan has suggested we put the horse before the cart, namely can we clean up a mess before it happens?

Clearly Andrew Wilkinson wants to deal with disasters after they happen, even if it means citizens of BC will suffer and or even … Read the rest

NOTE: This article was originally posted on our old website back on 2014-08-05 It still strongly reflects how I feel and am bringing it back due to the issue of Kinder Morgan, Rachel Notley and that kid we call our Prime Minister.  I have always preferred to have leaders that are old enough and afraid enough of meeting their maker, that it instills a desire to do what is best for people, vs best for political advancement.

This year marks the year when I join the ranks of those who are 60 and plus, also known as senior citizens, … Read the rest

Going back to the origins of ICBC the NDP brought in this crown owned corporation in 1973 due to the extreme costs of auto insurance for the ordinary citizen of our province. The then called Liberals were called Social Credit, and in 1976 campaigned to bring ICBC to an end, but once elected chose to run it into the ground for the next 14 years so the public would cry out for privatization. ICBC was at that time so grossly underfunded, so it was time to shut it down, or fix it.

The NDP had no choice but to increase … Read the rest

Its never been a question of if, the real question is when will be the next one. Will the next one shatter all previous records?

Its not about socialism, its not about left wing, its about good old fashioned unadulterated greed, the lust for money far outweighs political stripes.

While most citizens in BC are still reeling with pure astonishment at the hypocrisy of John Horgan in regards to the Site C Dam, one where he was elected in large part due to his opposition to that dam, and then does exactly what the Liberals always do, goes back on … Read the rest

Step aside for the Holy Cyclist

In this rant I will have to admit its not only ICBC that is stupid, the problem originates from the same place most problems on earth originate, in a courtroom by a judge playing the role of the wise/est man, after all who outranks a judge in a litigation case?

As an old fart who is very picky about safe driving, and one that does not mind teaching others how to drive safely (defensive driving), you can imagine my absolute disbelief when a student failed a test because they did not do the right … Read the rest

Recently I have been reading about a group of mayors who think the answer to municipal problems is collecting on the carbon tax. What a bunch of ignorant and self-centered fools. Are you forgetting or is it by design and intent that northern communities have the least chance of ever seeing transit as an alternative means of transportation, they already pay the highest food prices, with the worst selection for quality. toon

Adding insult to injury is the stupid majors in the north that support such idiocy, just because they can ride a bike to the majors office, does not mean … Read the rest

Have you ever wondered what life would be like in a logical world? One where government did what was needed for society rather than greed based legislation? Green initiatives are a joke on society, lots of charging us to make us shut up while they do nothing to fix real problems, and use the money to get re-elected.

If Canada continues to grow in population we cannot plan on more cars only, and more roads, you can only fit so many cars on a city street, … Read the rest

It’s so hidden from the news at a time when gas prices are falling faster than a sinking ship, the BC Utilities Commission approves a rate hike of 1.8% for PNG. They are claiming their costs are going up by 14.5% and want to pass on that loss to the consumers. screenshot_147
This when at the same time they are saying, to you and me,

“Natural gas is a commodity traded on the open market like other commodities such as oil, coffee or lumber. As with most commodities, the price is dictated by supply and demand. When demand is high, Read the rest

Why the BC Government? In a nutshell they destroyed more agricultural land in their tenure than all previous governments combined, and who did they sell it too, the same real estate developers who fund all their elections. If we would have protected our food industry rather than allowing China and the USA to produce our food, we would not be having a food price crisis in British Columbia.

Recall that not so long ago we were given this news “BC Hydro rates to increase 28 per cent over 5 years” that was only 2 years ago, was it a coincidence that it came on the heels of another story, namely this one “Vaughn Palmer: ‘Surprise’ BC Hydro cost overruns hard to believe, with execs part of premier’s inner circle

Then in 2015 when they opened the Northwest Transmission Line the real cost went to $736 million almost double what they declared when they budgeted for this project. Thus BC Hydro runs a deficit that we the … Read the rest
