You are bound and bent to staunchly support whatever the BC Liberals have done, regardless of Rich Coleman's comment about Christy Clark resigning... 'What she has done for the Province of BC should never be forgiven...err, forgotten..'
Why do people who fancy themselves "fiscal conservatives" not scream at hidden debt accumulated in the past dozen years? Or, do they only object to spending on social programs?

Sure. Stick with that slip of the tongue. Nice to see that you were able to back up your wild claims with evidence!

Politicians of all stripes always skate. There might be some unknown fall guy, at best. Hardly news, imho.

The fall guy in this case is well-known. His name is Brian Bonney.

Funny how they can be just fine with a preferential ballot as long as it's used in a BC Liberal leadership race, but it's a no-no when it's proposed for a provincial election.

Even more funny to see what lengths they'll go to in order to keep the front runner Dianne Watts from winning.

That's a crime too? See what I mean how everything is a crime for some of you when it comes to the Liberals?

I didn't say it was a crime; I simply said it was sleazy.

Pretty sure the leadership race doesn't end with a minority. That's the main objection.

I know. I already apologized for posting that link to the wrong topic, and corrected my mistake. What more would you like me to do?

Why is Bonney the fall guy? The whole motley crew behind this scandal, including Christy Clark, should be doing time for this.

There have been other inquiries, but they were thwarted by the government in power at the time. The BC Liberals no longer have the power to cover up their nefarious deeds. AG David Eby has started the ball rolling by demanding the 2014 Ernst & Young report on ICBC. It's up to us to keep the ball rolling. Sign the petition.
