BC liaRs line up
for the Gree
1- they at least have a background in power generation/distribution
2- maybe they feel insecure working for a crown corporation so obviously under attack by the same government who has taken aim not only at BC Hydro, but also BC Rail, BC Ferries, BC Gas and the BC Healthcare System itself in its ongoing efforts to make an American for-profit model seem attractive.
murmar points out that:
While there is no direct evidence of conflict of interest, there seems to be a troublesome pattern of BC Governement and Liberal party insiders being employed by these power corporations. Many have inside knowledge of government policy and processes that probably could lead to the enrichment of the companies that many have moved to.

Supposedly we live in a democracy, but in a democracy the government is supposed to serve the people - NOT THE CORPORATIONS! Actually the privatize everything crowd empitomized by Thatcher, Ronnie Raygun, Bu$hCo, Pinochet, the PsuedoCons under Harper and our own organized criminal group lead by Gordo the Greedy bear more of a kinship with what we know as FASCISM!
When you consider what we, as a province, have given away during the last eight years of Campbell terror to CN (BC Rail), Kinder-Morgan(BC Gas), Accenture (functions of BC Hydro and BC Medical and maybe more), the attempt to sell the Coquihalla, the rights of wild salmon to get by farmed salmon sea-lice, every stream big enough to turn a turbine in spring freshet, and I could go on - Carole James' message about Taking Back BC, should resonate with people who aren't in a Canned Waste/Glowball induced coma!
I saw Gordo speaking at the Sun Run yesterday in regards to the pay out to star candidate Kash Heed, who voluntarily QUIT his job in West Van, yet still stands to collect $40,000. Gordo couldn't have been more sanctimonious about the sanctity of contracts. How's about the sanctity of contracts with the HEU or the financiers of the Olympic Village. I guess contracts are kind of like the JustUs system - depends on who is accused. It appears that if you are a BC liaR or supporter, you can count on dying in bed of old age before any charges against you are dealt with - and in the meantime they can't even be mentioned (sub judice priest) - that's the extra special good part, from their point of view, at least!
