I'm afraid those leopards simply don't change their spots, and you'd have better success growing a third nipple.

The least likely thing. We're probably locked in here for the rest of the term. Maybe the NDP (fed or prov) will find someone to hold Horgans leash and keep him under control.
So much of the violent push-back on everything progressive and reformist comes down to: I can see the future, and in this future I am not the centre of the universe and master of all that I survey, therefore this future must be resisted at all costs.

I suspect you are right.
If Weaver didn't flinch after the Site C approval and the NDP's continued support of LNG development....nothing is going to stop those two porkers from bellying up to the trough of public funds. :-X

This is no doubt the penaltimate moment for the Greens. A chance to fully suckle from the unlimited teat. No way they are going to let this chance go.

Who's Dimples? Who's the MP for Kelowna? Both interesting questions that are hard to answer.

Noted an article regarding Ben Stewart getting sworn in.

I guess perhaps that's why he didn't present a bill already, as some complained. :biggrin:

Not sure what you mean by that. He seems to be doing a good job for B.C. so far.

Define "good job". Under your parameters, that guy in Hawaii who sent out the fake missile attack texts was doing a "good job".

Good to see Ben sworn in. Now go do your best to bring down this horrible unelected cabal of boneheads, please.

A real dynamic leader would have found a way to have been sworn in last week.

^^Yaaawwwwn....

He's 'Party Member' who will do whatever and say whatever he is told to say. Or do. He proved that when he gave up his seat to Christy.
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?
