Campbell and ideology

You will, I hope, forgive my absence from these pages. Treating a note for the teacher, I have two excuses. The most annoying problem has been a week long bout with stomach flu which I got in Victoria, one week from last Sunday. It’s pretty much gone now, the saints be praised! The other problem […]

Gordon Campbell and facing the public

I have no intention of being “Mr. Nice Guy” to Gordon Campbell because he’s leaving office to wait for his massive pension to kick in and for lush directorships from the Energy companies to be offered. I’m an environmental activist trying to save our salmon, our rivers, and our farm land, Why should I get […]

The pundits and Gordon Campbell

There is a new, to me at any rate, columnist in the Vancouver Province named Ethan Baron whom I enjoy. I was, however, amused and nonplussed by today’s article where he lists the errors of Gordon Campbell quite in contrast to The Vancouver Sun‘s editorial this morning praising the premier to the heavens.

I can only say this about Gordon Campbell’s resignation: if Damien and I did anything to assist this happening I’m only sorry that we didn’t do more and quicker. He was not only a bad leader – he disgraced himself and us. As an environmentalist I must also say that no matter who takes over […]

They must have just been aroused after a lengthy coma. In my lifetime I have witnessed four political meltdowns, four parties […]

Possible replacements for Campbell

It will be interesting to see what Premier Gordon (Pinocchio) Campbell does with his cabinet next fall when shuffle time will be on us again. Most pundits including me (have we ever been wrong?) believe that Campbell will step down in 2011 and, in my view, get his reward with a high 6 figures or […]

The polls have Gordon Campbell’s Liberals a massive 23 points behind the NDP. Though this is three years away from the next election one has to conclude that Gordon (Pinocchio) Campbell is electoral toast. It is he who has micromanaged his government from the start and thus it is he who is so unpopular. While […]

We learn from the morning excuses for Vancouver Papers that the provincial government is hiding back reports of the impact of sea lice from fish farms on wild salmon. Why should we be surprised? The government has steadfastly refused to face up to this issue on the old standby political position of saying and doing […]

The fact that no charges were recommended against former Solicitor General and one time Mayor of Chilliwack Jon Les is not quite the vindication he claims. He clearly was an insider on land deals while mayor and had special favours given him. What was not demonstrated – or better put, what the Crown said it […]
