Broken Promise # 18 - "We won't advertise"

- Rick Barnes

Another broken promise...

Remember all those feel good ads last year. Gordon Campbell said he wouldn't do them. I know the arguement has been "all governments do this" yet Campbell went beyond just saying this was wrong. He said ...

Black astronauts, Grizzly Liberals and BC's Odd Couple of politics 

Some posts that go all over the place.  A homophobic Liberal wins in Langley, just in time to help the gay Uncle Tom in the westend of Vancouver.  A link to a 10 minute movie in the black astronaut program of 1957.  On a serious note, the Liberals break an election promise then defy the court of appeal in BC to keep secret the locations of grizzly shootings in BC

Gordon Campbell and empathy in the same sentence?

There is something ironic (and just not right) about the Campbell Liberal government being associated with the subject of empathy.

Non-Profits need to speak out

"The only people who feel safe to speak out today are those that have had all their funding eliminated. Yet it is the essence of that fear that should drive these agencies to speak out. They know there is real measurable pain and suffering being done to people by the decisions made by the Campbell Liberal government. They see it first hand day in and day out." - Rick Barnes

BC AG Geoff Plant leaves and its about time!

PEJ N News - Rick Barnes - Gordon Campbell's AG held little respect for the peons.

Geoff Plant was the first Attorney General to receive a vote of non confidence from BC Lawyers, he implemented the biggest cuts in legal aid in Canadian history, held a public referendum on treaty rights that was so flawed that it was widely ignored, and has watched while the Campbell government systematically ripped up legal and binding contracts with Teachers and BC Health care and community social services workers.

BC AIDS Organizations silence lets Liberal Govt off the hook

Where is the fire that drove BC's AIDS organizations to demand health allowances for people living with HIV and got it in 2001, just to see the new Campbell Liberal government cut the allowance in half? Where is the demand for affordable housing they championed and were achieving before the last BC election, just to see the current government cancel those projects? Where is the demand for home, respite and palliative care? All of these services in BC have been cut or virtually eliminated.
