Former Socred Cabinet Minster Rafe Mair tells it like it is in this powerhouse speech on April 24 in Merritt, at the outset of the BC election campaign. Mair minces no words, zeroing in on the BC Liberals’ real economic record, which stands in stark contrast to the one being presented by Christy Clark throughout her campaign.

“Christy Clark has on the side of her bus, ‘Debt Free BC’. We owe $171 Billion dollars! Since the Liberals came to power, our per capita share of debt has gone from a little over $5,000 to $40,000 – every man, woman and child…Ask the folks in Greece or in Cyrpus or in Italy what happens when the day of reckoning comes. And the day of reckoning is going to come with this.”

Throughout the emotional 10 min address, Mair speaks of his concern for today’s youth and future generations. “We have now a situation in British Columbia that keeps me from shutting my mouth. I can’t do it – not as an old man. I see the country literally at a watershed. I see the province at a point where if proper decisions are not made promptly, we’re condemning our children and grandchildren to eternal debt.”

Required viewing for all British Columbians on the eve of the May 14 election.

    “Mair’s Axiom II. You don’t have to be a 10 in politics, you can be a 3 if everyone else is a 2.”
    Dix is a 2, Clark is a 3 … Better her over the criminal.

    It’s yet to be seen how many criminals the Liberals have or had in office. Campbells one. But till an inquiry into BC rail is completed by the NDP I am sure we’ll have Chrusty’s and her ilk being another.

    The debt has room to grow yet. Wait until the bills come in for the natural gas pie in the sky. What Dix did not realize is that China just signed a 50 year agreement for natural gas to be brought in via a pipe line from Russia. Does anyone really believe that shipping gas via tankers could be competitive with that? The poor fool shot himself and his party in the foot needlessly. I am not a fan of the NDP, but they were the only hope B.C. had to perhaps remove the for sale sign on everything owned by the public. Thanks Mr. Dix
