No kidding. The NDP's constant old boys' club bashing of Christy Clark and what she wore, and the fact she was a single mom, was unrelenting. It's disgusting and yet so prevalent among the old boys at the NDP.

The NDP's "studies" are just a waste of money on NDP insiders looking for any morsel that can be spewed forth in the next election. There's no benefit to the public/taxpayers whatsoever.
When you're dead, you don't know you are dead. It is only difficult for the others.

It's the same when you are stupid.

WOW! How low in the barrel does someone have to dig to turn a political issue into a gender issue? That is so sad that that a XX poster is using this as a point of reference.
If a XY poster made the same references, the sjw's and antifa's would be all over him like white on rice. SO LOW! You should be ashamed of yourself for even thinking such thoughts and even more ashamed that you posted them in writing on a public forum.

I take that response as a personal attack. If I were you, I'd wait to hear HG's reply before setting my hair on fire.

Also, I wasn't aware that Trevena was one of the 'baker's dozen'. That is definitely a strike against her. But I think you're wrong about the reason she got that ministry. If I recall, she was the one who represented the North Island and went to bat for the residents of Port Hardy and Bella Coola when Stone closed down that ferry service.

But you haven't been able to refute anything else I stated, such as Rich Coleman, Mike deJong, Christy Clark, and all the other BC Liberal ministers who weren't up to the task of handling their various ministries, and I stand by my comments on that.


Actually, you were wrong about several, but then I don't expect you to fact check yourself. Like the fact that Suzanne Anton was indeed a qualified lawyer. Or that fact Todd Stone had management experience. Or that Rich Coleman had a real job before politics unlike so many NDP political "scientists".

Never mind, all that is a side show.

The reality is that Claire Trevena is patently unqualified for the ministry she is running, completely partisan, and is in conflict of interest by taking the stance that residents of pokey little islands should get a guaranteed fare cut.

^^As much as you want to make this all about Claire Trevena, it isn't. I did as you suggested and did a little fact checking tonight. What I found was the reason the BC Liberal supporters love to hate Claire Trevena. She was an excellent opposition critic of BCFerries. Read her bio and its obvious that she was a thorn in the side of the previous government because she was able to dig up some very embarrassing (if not downright corrupt) operations in the BC Ferries executive branch.

I also read much of Rich Coleman's bio and there are so many skeletons in his closet that he must have had to build an addition onto it several times. Even as far back as 2004 when his brother Stan was involved with Weyerhauser and Mike deJong was forest minister, there was private land released from management under TFLs against the recommendation of ministry staff. Then again in 2007, when brother Stan was with Western Forest Products, this time involving a tree farm licence. It's all there in the bio. Read it and weep......as if you don't already know about Rich and Mike's sordid past history.

I could find no such skullduggery in Trevena's bio. The fact that she lives on Quadra aIsland has nothing to do with her transportation decisions. She has proven to be a competent politician who has done for her constituents what Rich has done for his family, only she is doing it in a legal and above-board manner.
