Robin's Analysis - Part 4

Robin Matthews, who has been attending the court appearances when possible and reporting on them has outdone himself with his posting over at BC Mary's today. I never felt that the charged Indo-Canadians had enough influence to actually sell, but they could provide access to their employers like the "Soup Nazi, the ferret and Judith the Transport Minister, to name only three. Though the Ledge Raids and the sale of BC Rail seem like big scandals, Robin's post today illustrates how they are each just small parts of a much larger assault on the freedom, property and trust of all the citizens of this once proud province.

As Robin points out:

To suspect the Gordon Campbell government of attempting to undermine just investigations, the laying of charges, and fair pursuit of legal remedies in the history following the legislature raids is not, in my opinion, an option. It is a fundamental necessity.(italics mine)

Hie thee on over and read Robin - Part 4 (link above), you might want to wait awhile after eating however, because what the Soup Nazi and his crackers have been up to is truly and deeply sickening or as my boys used to say when they were young - grossening.

BTW, Hooray for the NDP for actually making the Liberals spend at least a little bit of time in the Legislature - in spite of the fact the Soup Nazi himself is far away across the sea. Of course we won't know what he's actually doing unless we get to see some mug shots. When it comes to the Rockpile, use it or lose it, you never know with these guys. If they see it sitting idle too long, they may just secretly sell it to the Empress for expansion of the Empress' tourist trade. We probably wouldn't know until the Empress started booking rooms thusly - "Would you like tea in the Original Empress or in what used to be the ferret's den?" To date they've just used the Legislature to sell influence, but hey, if the offer is good enough maybe the building is available. BC Rail wasn't for sale either, remember!

Mr Matthews
Wake up! In 10 years in power the NDP held two fall sessions. The BCL have held 5 fall sessions in 6 years.

Remember - these are the guys that promised open, accountable government, and oh yeah, "WE WILL NOT SELL BC RAIL."

It certainly seems to me that these guys are pretty busy behind the scenes, so much for open, transparent and accountable.

By the way anon, why don't you challenge something of "substance" in Robin's posting rather than quibbling about who holds the most sittings. Maybe the Libs don't like sitting now that there is more than three on the opposition benches, even though it is beginning to appear that Joy and Jenny provided more opposition than the current lot.

I heard from a friend that the NDP had actually pushed the Legislature into an all-night sitting on Monday.

She watched on the BC Legis. channel until 2:00 AM, then went to bed.

Did you see anything about this in the news media?? I sure didn't.

A bit of the event was in the T/C. They were there till 0825 , whithin a few minutes. The debate was on a motion by DeJong to shut down at 9:05 PM. That didn't happen. A long read on Hansard but many issues were raised, The Liberals said nothing much. Gordo couldn't make it. He wouldn't make it actually because the intent was to accept the findings of a both party committee for the new rep for children. Gordo had chopped the position to save money and there was no way he would have brought the position back, but public opinion, stronger opposition and Ted Hughes report forced him. Gordo isn't the kind of a guy who would have to say he was sorry. Mind you he did when found guilty of Drunk Driving, he was afraid the folks woud run him out of town.
