So you are saying he's a secret BC Liberal plant, sent in to sabotage Horgan? Interesting theory. We all know that if what you stated above is true, there is no way he would want the NDP to win. Job-killing bloviating ignoramuses, all of them.

What do you think Horgan has signed us up for? :135:


Horgan has likely offered the union stooge a plush position in an NDP bureaucracy, to "study" some made-up crap about forestry. The union kingpin doesn't care about forking over $672,000 of workers' money to set himself up with the NDP. Perhaps a better use of that money would be to help retrain workers for good jobs as the drop in AAC due to the NDP's bungling the beetle outbreak in the late 1990s causes mills to scale back in the next few years.

Gerard has successfully debunked this headline. It's time we changed it to read, "BC Liberal campaign run by CAPP".

But what about the $770,000 Christy received from Kinder Morgan just before she approved the pipeline expansion? And what about all the other donations over the course of her 'premiership' from various members of CAPP?

BC Liberal supporters are notorious for being the pot that calls the kettle black. They're also notorious for using schoolyard name-calling in their defense.

Link? And why would people be against Kinder Morgan? That's just stupid.

Who cares. It sure beats shipping by rail or truck. Which is just stupid. Anyone who is against pipelines should really give their head a shake. Or even better, leave the country.

If Horgan gives his head a shake, we'll hear the rattling sound across BC as the single pea resonates in the hollow chamber.

If those against pipelines leave the country, we'll finally be rid of the disgusting, vile NDP.

I like your idea, GB. :up:

I knew they had the two chief union thugs paid for by the US-based USW, but this is even more revealing. Over a dozen union bozos "shaping policy" for the NDP. Wowsa!

The New Democrats are relying on the help of more than a dozen United Steelworkers employees to shape and deliver the party’s message during the B.C. election campaign, with the salaries of its most senior campaign staff being paid by the union.

BC's NDP had a $750,000 loan guaranteed by CUPE. Do you think that's appropriate?
