Some of you have a very low standard when it comes to assessing Adrian Dix for Premier. He's had some serious ethical lapses that should be taken into account by voters.


If we are speaking comparatively with recent history, Adrian Dix is looking better and better. Seems like ethics, morals and honesty have flown out the window over these past decade. Despite all the pledges of 'open and transparent government.' But carry on, continue to admire Gordo and Christy. You obviously lie with them.. and get up with the same fleas.

only a brain-dead idiot could come to this conclusion. If we hadn't had the fools in the NDP running this province in the 1990's, there wouldn't have been any fast ferries to begin with, as it was their stupid desire, mostly due to the fact that they are a bought and paid for party of the hard-left unions in this province, to create jobs via building these stupid ferries. Blaming the Liberals for having to clean the sewer that the NDP created is the height of foolishness.

That's the only way - if you include any history past recent, he looks like a guy who should be behind bars.

You know what they say about those who ignore history Nab. Some of you have a very low standard when it comes to assessing Adrian Dix for Premier. He's had some serious ethical lapses that should be taken into account by voters.


I don't for a moment dispute that Urbane (taking such things into consideration). Still, it remains taking it all in balance when it comes to what standard (of those available) one is prepared to accept in the absence of anything at all better (and much worse alternatives IMO). Personally, I would prefer a much higher standard on all political ideology fronts in BC, but right now I'll have to run with the best one available as the only logical approach.

Once again not comprehending what you read. I'm not blaming them for having to clean the sewer..But how they did it ,in loosing millions of potential profit.It doesn't matter who or what caused the fiasco the Liberals were the ones in charge of things when they were sold,not the NDP.The right claims that they are better stewards of the tax payers money and spend it wisely.A complete fail on how they managed the sale of the ferries making an already fiasco even worse than it needed to be.

By the way I agree with everyone that the whole fast ferry project was a fiasco and bungled by the NDP and they where punished for it in the 2001 election.

And again nothing to substantiate those claims.I'm taking," behind bars" to mean one would have to be a criminal,so substantiate that claim.

The terrible track record of the NDP is exonerated because they got boot-humped 77 - 2 in 2001? When ALL the same players, including the guy who was Number 2 in Glen's office, are still running the NDP and still involved in shifty, illegal activites, the past is most relevant, not least! Dix was Clark's right hand man, and the architect of many kickback schemes and illegal activities. Nothing has changed since the day before the 77 - 2, and certainly the drumming out hasn't cleansed the party one single bit.

We have been around and around on this.
The federal Conservatives under Kim Campbell
were reduced to two MPs.
Somehow they were "exonerated" and went on to govern.

So when is Dix going to come clean and admit that he got the unions to illegally fund NDP efforts in this Prince George recall initiative? Can he fess up, or are his nads so small that he will continue to hide behind Jim Sinclair's coat and hope it all just goes away? From what I've heard, it looks like this issue is going to gain steam and could help decide the outcome of the May election.

Dix has had too many skirmishes with the law to be able to stem the tide of negative press that is building. It's going to be fun watching this one play out! :D
You are not stupid, I just think you have bad luck when thinking.

reading the entire list makes me wretch at the stupidity being displayed by the NDP shills in thinking anyone could be gullible enough to fall for this nonsense, but number two made me LOL - somehow those fools are trying to pass off the fast ferries onto the Liberals? Seriously? That's like setting a house on fire, and then blaming the fire crews for not putting the fire out fast enough. Good night - how could anyone be dumb enough to fall for this craziness? I really hope you were kidding Mr. Nab.



I think you are misreading somehow. IMO everyone (including the NDP of the time as well as today's NDP) recognizes the fast ferries was idiotic as to concept, design, and engineering, ...and as a result came as little surprise to anyone that the build and execution was a massive failure and waste of taxpayers money regardless of the short term jobs it produced (which subsequently lead to even more waste of taxpayer's money by the Liberals which persists to this day). No one I know blames the Liberals for the fast ferry fiasco ...(although one might stretch slightly and suggest that as government opposition at the time they certainly didn't do their job of bringing forward the obvious flaws in the concept from the git go - probably quite happy with with it as a matter of fact due to the immediate stimulation of the BC shipbuilding sector and the economic benefits they perceived would accrue to private sector business interests in BC regardless of whether it succeeded or failed).

But in fact government was warned by saner heads on a number of occasions (both before and during the design/build and implementation) that the thing was a disaster preparing to happen, and when it did the Liberals had no choice but to deal with the useless pieces of junk that had been built and the resulting economic fallout. The only thing the Liberals can be blamed for is how they handled it (and of course the subsequent costly economic mess they created in their attempts to cobble together a fix since).

If "blame" for the fast ferry fiasco resides anywhere, IMO it most properly rests with the self serving but largely incompetent private sector business interests and management of the time and since. Things which continue to happen to this day on a variety of fronts.

Perhaps the NDP should confess to financial support form unions.
Then the Liberals should confess to financial support form business.
(Actually, they both get support from both.)
Then they could be absolved from all their political sins,
say a few 'Hail Marys' and MOVE ON.

Completely different situation. Kim Campbell's chief of staff didn't utter false documents and then lie about them. And then get elected as leader of their party and now be in a position to be handed the prime minister's chair by a bunch of idiots with no standards. That's the position Adrian the memo-forger is in, and it stinks, worse than the bath-room after a visit from Harv Oberfeld after a night at the buffet.

Jean Charest was a PC MP. But this is the Adrian Dix thread George - I know it is hard to find anything nice or positive to say about the guy, but since you are an NDP sycophant, that's your job. And you are doing a really bad job.
