Just to show a surplus.

And yes, the predictable has happened, NDP who has to pay the piper, had to raise rates. Oh and something to do with dealing with distracted driver crashes and claims surely had an impact.

Oh and emergency spending all over BC.

Oh, and yes, the tolls came off the bridges, so yes, something had to compesate for that.

Oh, and one other thing...

The NDP did NOT put into law any provision which bans using ICBC as a piggy bank in the future.

Move along folks, nothing to see here.

And this is just the beginning!
I suspect the NDP will find (or invent) all sorts of financial crisis and doom and gloom to pin on those horrible, horrible ChristyLiberals. Another election is coming....better start flinging mud hard and fast. :biggrin:

Next it will be B.C Hydro, Ferries, Education, forestry, healthcare, and possibly mining. :up:
"Oh Noes! We can't possibly keep those campaign promises due to the ChristyLiberals mismanagement"....and so on...and so forth. :smt045

Just like Corp donations, could have been done with the stroke of a pen.

No ban on Corp donations.... Yet

No increase in bc hydro rates... Yet

No income tax increase... Yet.


There's a lot coming, and everyone, including the GreenDP will be crying foul... Just not yet.

This is the ultimate in political suicide.

I hope the BCUC turns this down.

I suspect it is going to get allot more expensive to live in B.C in the near future if this NDG alliance is allowed to carry on governing.
B.C = "Bring Cash" will ring truer than ever before.
And anyone making more than 70K a year (high income earners according to Johnyboy) will apparently bear the brunt.
I, for one, can't wait....

If it's up to dough-brains like Joy McFail and Adrian Dix to fix anything, then we are all doomed.
3.7 cents kwh in alberta is a lie. The science is settled - wind turbines suck.

Yes I hate it when people deliberately use misleading headlines/thread titles to further an agenda. I also hate hypocrisy. Both of which are rampant here at the moment.
