BC Gov't Fail

Global BC | B.C. Liberals planned to promote HST with iPad giveaway



"the pamphlet features a list of the “10 reasons why B.C. is The Best Place on Earth,” including answers like: “we give hope to the world;” “we’re cool;” and “we like bigstuff"

"The government never sent out the pamphlet, shredding all copies not long after having spent $780,000 to have them designed and printed."

I am not intending to start a political party debate...at this point, they all have issues that are "fail" worthy...But, this was just a pure waste of money. I am so tired of our politicians acting like morons...

Give a listen to the "waste patrol" on cknw. Waste of money isn't a new thing to BC.

Ridiculous. With these unions there's no accountability. If you screw up, your job is still safe.

first paragraph says it all


"The B.C. Liberal government planned to use Olympic nostalgia and free iPads to persuade a reluctant public to support the harmonized sales tax. "

Every poll that comes out shows the liberals getting trounced by the NDP and surprisingly, the conservatives although he was done nothing to introduce himself to the population, and looks like a cross between the emperor in Star Wars and the Pope(who himself, looks like the emperor in Star Wars)

Rock <<<<<<<Christy Crunch>>>>>>> Hardplace.

The only way she wins the election is to make a bunch of giveaways with tax money, which she said she would not do.

I have noticed that she has been in the news less. There was a while that every day she'd be using the term "families first agenda" on the news as an answer to any question asked.

"Premier Clark, what have you made of all the rain lately?"

"Well, I'm glad you asked that, as the rain really goes to support our families first agenda. The rain keeps families indoors, and really goes to build those vital relationships."

The whole thing is really annoying. We just keep marching closer to an NDP government, and god knows what they have in mind for fixing to province.

Oh wait...I see your free ipad for HST support, and raise you free ipads for everybody!
