B.C. Political Ads

Post by George+ »

Anyone else quite tired of the Liberals CC4BC ads?
Especially 4 times in one news hour?
Being bankrolled by CEOs like Jim Shepard/Canfor

All govts rely on B.C. Resources.

I really dislike all political ads...so unnecessary.

When you follow the money you can see who's special interests are being met. The Christy Clark BC Liberals are in government for these very people. So if you are these people I can understand why you would vote for her and them. However if you are not then who can afford millions of dollars for anti NDP political ads then you are voting against your interests, those of your family (direct or indirect) and most of the people who live and work in your communities.

So , the Liberals doubled the government advertising budget to $ 15 MILLION recently.

Here is Christy talking about the subject. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_8m4HdlSZA

It often seems as if our politicians are actors who have memorized their scripts. Christy Clark made some good points there and it's too bad that she couldn't heed her own advice. However, her script now says something different so she's reading from that. They're all sleazy and we need a new cast of characters. Until we have a viable alternative though I'll stick with the sleazy ones who have guided us to the best economy in the country.

And as long as Christy is in power increasing our daily cost of living in this province your indexed pension will keep going up.

Urb's pension will suffer under Christy, compared to how the Canadian average is going. BC is among the lowest for CPI increases.

We do need a government we can trust with our kids education.

Christy supports private schools, first.

And wasted millions arguing against a bargained contract.
