Lying without.................

Campaign Promises Writing!

Click on Image to Enlarge

The letter above (click to enlarge so it can be read *) was from candidate Gordon Campbell to a voter in the north/central BC Rail corridor in early May, just before the deluge election that sent the Gord into the Big Chair. The letter talks about things such as:

  • "...we have no intention of privatizing BC Hydro. We will not sell or privatize - Hydro Dams, Transmission Lines, water resources, blah, blah, blah."

  • "restore authority of BCUC"

  • "In addition, we will not sell or privatize BC Rail!"

The voter had written with specific questions for the Man from Marathon and upon receiving the answers above probably even voted for the WHPinC (White-haired Prevaricator-in-Chief)- to his everlasting dismay, no doubt! This is documentary proof that Gordon Campbell can LIE without even moving his lips. Of course we wouldn't expect any less from our own Prevaricator-in-Chief! I'm sure that there were probably enough phoney letters like the above cluttering mailboxes from Atlin to White Rock, back in the day, and the lying just goes on, only lately it would seem even under oath!

* Anyone wanting a high resolution copy of the letter above can e-mail the koot with "promise2001" in the subject line. It is perfect for framing to hang next to the silk screen montage of the Maui drunk shots!

Picture me doing the Dance of Joy in the quiet, oak-panelled Library here, when I succeeded in pulling up The Legislature Raids and saw what an absolutely terrific few days you've had with input, there.

Thanks a million.

Now I see that House of Infamy has some news which should shrivel Gordo's heart. Good going!

Makes me wish I was home. But maybe on June 28, or so, I'll be back on the job too.

Now, to see if I can successfully get this comment to go through. Blessings upon you, Koot.

Just dropped in for a minute or two.

Saw the amazing -- totally amazing -- comment by Citizen Journalist 54 about the man at the Skytrain station who approached two memembers of the jury.

Question #1: aren't jurors expected to keep a distance from one another, not even discussing the evidence, until AFTER they reach a verdict?

Question #2: w.t.f. could the father of a defence lawyer be thinking? wanting?
and if it's a question of the man having mental illness, why make it worse by hedging the story?

I totally agree with the person who calls for that stupid ban to be lifted.

I hope to get home again by June 28. But am delighted by the way you've handled TLR, and hope your readers are giving you lots of scoops as well as bouquets.

As you may have learned by now, the "approacher at Patterson Station" was the father of a member of Wild Bill's Gang!

Terrific new reporting today (June 24) and I'm just hoping somebody will forward the comments to Robin who may otherwise miss seeing that information.

Madam MacKenzie's performance as seen from a bit more distance, looks chaotic, ad hoc, outa control, and make-it-up-as-we-go.

Tragic, when we remind ourselves what's at stake in this BC Rail Political Corruption Trial.

Hi again Koot ...

You wouldn't believe how long it takes me to find ways on a public computer to access our familiar blogs and, more than once, to wipe out my comment before I can get it posted. First time around, it took me approx. 2 hours to complete a 5-min. function. I'm down to about 30 minutes now ...

but will be going to a new location, new home (sold our previous home, moved out) so will be at loose ends for a while yet. It's been a blessing to have you looking after the Legislature Raids because there's a strong network connection and I wouldn't want to rattle that.

We've become a strong network, and it gives me such high hopes. This morning, I read RossK at Pacific Gazette, and am stunned by his revelation that TWO of the regular attendees at the Basi Virk Trial have promised Madam MacK. that they will NEVER attend in the public gallery of her court again.


We've come a long way, to where we've found a judge willing to place a ban upon two citizens as well as upon the trial itself. It makes the G8 and G20 lock-down seem almost ... well, like everyday normal.

Thanks, everybody, for the important part we're playing in bringing this BCRail Political Corruption Trial out into the open.

Take care, BC Mary....many thanks to both you and kootcoot.

I really don't understand how a father of a Crown counsel who attends court regularly would not know the basic rule that parties, lawyers, and witnesses are not allowed to speak with members of the jury?

Is this a simple stupid mistake or is a certain perception being created here?

And why was the other attendee banned? I think I read somewhere that he/she is also related to the prosecution....but if they are following the rule of law, then on what basis, on what information, did the judge make that decision?
