Land of the Lost
Monday the thirteenth, an unlucky day for citizens of BC. Tomorrow morning the ownership of 2,509 parcels of property including waterfront property along the sea to sky and parcels in North Vancouver, West Vancouver and all along the old BC Rail right away up to the Peace River region will have been transferred to CN, for the princely sum of $1.00. Or at least this is the case as well as those who care to pay attention can conclude from the negligible amount of information that has been made available to date (over FIVE YEARS) about this supposedly "great deal" for British Columbians. One would suppose that if this transfer wasn't part of the deal, someone would deny it and show documentation to prove otherwise, but nothing of the sort has occurred in FIVE YEARS!
Well, maybe if you happen to be a British Columbian named Maclean (the CEO of CN) or own stock in that American company known as CN it is a good day for you. I, and I'm confident some others, find it thoroughly disgusting to live in a paradise being dis-assembled by a corrupt and criminal government, aided and abetted by an equally compromised justice system and RCMP.
I wouldn't be surprised if Campbell and his gang weren't even interested in governing after 2013. There will be little left to
Even the loyal (to whom?) opposition is complicit in the ongoing crime spree at worst or negligent in their duty to the people at best. Many people have been calling and writing their MLAs, the justice critic and Carole "don't rock the boat" James for weeks now. Finally this morning SOME MLA's and that dog, Leonard Krog are sending out the most pathetic letter detailing how "they don't like the deal either" but apparently they don't dislike it enough to even attempt to do anything about it. I guess that would take time away from counting the money they get with their new, and not donated to charity anymore, salary increases.
Each letter (that I have seen) from an MLA is the exact same letter attributed to Mr. Krog, with the only original touches being the particular MLA's typos and/or mis-spellings of the salutations and/or signatures.
It's a disgusting day to be a British Columbian!
