Pardon My Tinfoil Hat

I have a suspicious nature. 

The BC Liberals are either liars or they cannot keep promises.  I am not suspicious about that, but I am suspicious about everything they say.  They were not going to tear up contracts, sell BC Railor bring in the HST, and they have no deficit.  Those are all lies.

Just now  Her Unelectedness has announced that BC does not support the Northern Gateway Pipeline.  She has not cancelled the equivalency agreement, which means that BC's opinion doesn't mean much, and it's kind of a toothless announcement.

Perhaps all those letters that LeadNow bestirred BC's residents to write had something to do with that.  Maybe she has been swayed by this. 

But I kind of doubt it.  She does not have a seat in the Legislature.  She has to win a by-election to get one.  At least one person has promised to make it the fight of her life, and I bet he'll have help. 

Will this be yet another broken promise?


  1. I think you've hit the nail on the head with this assessment.

  2. HI Kim, thank you for visiting.
    I have felt like I was in the twilight zone for the last 24 hours. BC Libs do not support Northern Gateway, Janet Holder of Enbridge was on CBC yesterday afternoon sounding like it was important to have a dialogue with BC residents, and James Moore and Joe Oliver are making similar noises. I am not celebrating any of this. It is making me even more suspicious.

  4. Rather to the south of you, in Washington. I begin to think that in our neck of the woods, broken promises from politicians are the only kind that exist.

  5. Hello Syrbal, thank you for stopping by. It looks like I will be doing a bit of reading over at your place.

    I don't understand why this has to be. And I don't know what the heck to do about it.

  6. Venal greed as a cause? Not very earth shattering or dramatic, but sadly sufficient.
    Feel free to rattle around the closets at my place...
