Important events don’t always seem to be so. So it is with the changes last month in both the Green party and the NDP. Going back, say a fortnight, the ruling Liberals were unpopular as hell, led by an airhead who likes to have her picture taken and ride in airplanes. Despite that, I would […]

Dear John Horgan, I hate to say this, but I told you so, and the flock of chickens I promised have now come home to roost. Many months ago I took you to task for supporting LNG without reservation. I told you that by doing this you had prevented your party from questioning each and […]

This is, I assure you, nothing personal but is entirely a matter of the quality of the opposition presented and the effect it has on forming public opinion. Socred praise for Barrett NDP A […]

Betting on mirage jobs, NDP leader downplays huge risks to citizens and nature. Dear B.C. New Democrat leader John Horgan, The reader response to my last article criticizing your support of the Liberal government’s LNG policy was substantial, and to be blunt, you didn’t fare well. Clearly, you and I don’t agree on this one […]

I suppose it’s not unusual for an electorate to feel swindled. It sure as hell happens often enough. The BC electorate has every right to feel swindled in the election of 2013 by the Christy Clark government’s solemn promise to make us all wealthy through LNG plants. This was a very specific promise and even […]

Ok, John Horgan (BC NDP Energy critic), now I’m pissed off. You were quoted in the Vancouver Sun this week as saying you’re unhappy that the NDP lost, etc, weep, sob. Here it is in plain, unadorned English: I TOLD YOU SO! In fact, my advice to you and your party has been constant and goes back […]
