It's sort of like trying to herd cats. And when I find something new to report on the Site C saga, you'll be the first to know.

Please make sure it is verifiable facts and not just propaganda and opinions that agree with yours.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have of changing others.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything that comes their way.

And yet you keep recycling the old stuff, in a desperate attempt to give it new life. Go figure. :138:

Just remember..the Greens refused to work with the Lieberals!

Seat count is meaningless and simply shows need for PR.

Still cheerleading for Lieberals?

It hardly shows a need for PR. More likely shows that the lower mainland is riddled with people looking for government handouts. Then again, I could be wrong.

As tiresome as that label has become, perhaps your time might be better spent, thinking up a new moniker for your precious NDP, given how many blatant lies Horgan and Weaver have told, in order to obtain power fraudulently.

There is no way we can ignore the fact that we, the people, are going to be paying for all the governmental mistakes of the past, including this one.

And to the person who keeps chortling, "77-2, 77-2", let me remind you of what Dave Barrett had to say about that: Two NDP MLAs and 77 BC Liberal MLAs, that's a fair fight.

It was 77-2 for a reason. Many traditional NDP voters abandoned their party because the province was in such bad shape and they were eager to kick out a failed government. They put the welfare of the province ahead of party loyalty.

Moving back to topic though . . . Horgan certainly made the right decision on Site C. And we all know that he made the decision before he referred the project to the BC Utilities Commission. So the referral was just political cover for Horgan. He's made some poor decisions but Site C wasn't one of them.
