Christy Clark makes a habit of running red lights with her son in the car: And with that the car has already sailed underneath the stale red stoplight and through the empty intersection. “You always do that,” says Hamish. What an excellent example for her kid… And the media, when not totally ignoring the facts, [...]

Pacific Carbon Trust wants $940 for taxpayers to see expense receipts – their letter here. #bcpoli ow.ly/jGaCO — Jordan Bateman (@jordanbateman) April 2, 2013 It isn’t enough that this carbon offset scam has robbed taxpayer-funded schools and hospitals of much-needed cash in order to hand it over to wealthy corporations such as Encana et al; [...]
While the Liberal-supporting #MediaParty members try to make out there’s some controversy regarding the Auditor General’s report on this massive Liberal scam, others are reporting the blatant and distasteful facts: Taxpayers have been robbed… In total, over the last three years, more than $50 million has been clawed out of public-sector operating budgets to pay [...]
BC officially dumps the HST to revert to the old GST/PST system on April 1, 2013 thanks to stupid people who, out of anger for the BC Liberal lies (understandable), opted to punish everyone with the anti-HST referendum vote instead of punishing just the lying Libs at election time.

Theresa Spence isn’t talking. The Attawapiskat First Nation chief is fasting and she can’t talk when she’s fasting, according to her spokesman Danny Metatawabin. Why not, I wondered?

If you buy eggs in BC, you are literally paying for the BC Egg Marketing Board’s propaganda: The British Columbia Egg Marketing Board, speaking for the province’s egg farmers who control it, routinely laments the growing tendency of consumers to save a buck or so a dozen by buying eggs in the U.S. Yet B.C.’s [...]
In case you haven’t been following closely, the CBC tries unsuccessfully to shame Canada’s military over a two-year-old video made when Bin Laden was still alive. And they made their attack just days before Remembrance Day… Defund the CBC.
Further to this post here… The CBC adds the opinion of one of their own taxpayer-funded “comedians”: “When you are in the workplace — and especially if it is the military — it’s like you’ve got to have some kind of sensitivity to the current world that we live in,” said Majumder. Oh-oh, I smell [...]
The porn queens* at the Mother Corp are shocked, shocked I tell you! The real story is in the comments: I don’t get it. Am I supposed to be offended that some soliders who fought/fight in Afghanistan (tasked with producing a “funny” video for a dinner) mocked Osama Bin Laden and his family? I couldn’t [...]
Dean has the latest on Canada’s “professional” journalists: Notice the CP headline “Harper ships armor-clad cars to India for 6-day trip” which is patently false as Harper has no say about his security. The Globe ran the same headline but has now changed it to “RCMP shipped armour-clad…” Smith and Chase both know full-well that [...]
This article attracts such comments from these types: There is no room for dissenting commentary in the leftwing echo chamber!

Failed robocall reporter Glen McGregor couldn’t resist snarking about a Conservative MP’s wearing of the poppy too early, in his opinion: Isn’t it still a bit early for poppies, Ed Fast?

Our PM sets an example: Harper, who makes $157,731 as an MP plus his $157,731 prime ministerial stipend, will now receive three per cent of his prime ministerial salary per year of service.If he serves until after the next election, in 2015, he’ll get about $47,000 a year in pension, $57,000 less than he would [...]
By now you all heard that McQuitty has resigned. His work destroying Ontario is complete. Perhaps he’s now set his sights on turning all of Canada into the “glory” that is Ontario… CEP/CAW member* Bruce Anderson fawns over the former Liberal premier: By almost any measure, Mr. McGuinty is one of Canada’s most successful politicians, [...]
Bias, what bias? “It sends a very clear message, we believe, to the conservatives and any other political group that thinks that they can attack workers.” CDN media union dues will now be used to support the NDP and oppose the Conservative government — Dean Skoreyko (@bcbluecon) October 15, 2012 Can you say “conflict of [...]
Actually, they say they want the retailers to change their trademarks to accommodate French or else pay hefty fines.
