Swampy Quote of the Day

If you vote to split the free enterprise vote, all you’re going to do is elect Adrian Dix the premier of B.C., and not for one term, probably two,”

Christy Clark, Premier of BC

The BC Liberals[1] are running scared. They keep harping about the Glen Clark or the Mike Harcourt governments as an evil specter of what the NDP can do if they are elected. It’s crap. They are acting like we are stupid and have fallen under some sort of NDP, Adrian Dix spell. Christy seems to think that we should forget about all the lies told by her party.

The BC Liberals are being encouraged to merge with the BC Conservatives. I think both parties are far too egotistical for this to happen. If they did manage to put their power issues aside I am sure the electorate will see it for what it actually is: a desperate ploy to hold on to power.


[1] We use the title “Liberal” loosely here. They are now defining themselves as the ‘free enterprise’ party. Ya, k, yawn.

Quote of the Day

“I’ve always been scared and I still am scared, but I’m starting to speak out a lot better and more and I want it better for me and my grandchildren and my kids, so they can have a little bit of a better life, so I think this will help to heal a lot.”

Alice George – at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings in Port Alberni.

Residential Schools are a shameful part of Canada’s history. Aboriginal children, forced to live in these ‘schools’ away from their families, suffered systematic abuse at the hands of their captors. Alice George sums it up well – it is about healing so the next generation does not suffer.
