Only 99 days

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

What a gong show. The clowns say they won't delay construction permits of Trans Mountain because

"We'll end up paying hundreds of millions of dollars that should be going to schools and hospitals to an oil company and that is not a goal that anybody's looking for.''

But two weeks later hire a lawyer to apply for intervener status on the ongoing court cases that the Feds were not to follow the NEB recommendations. Didn't the Supreme Court just rule that the NEB has this authority.

I guess it is ok if the money goes to a lawyer friend instead of schools and hospitals.

Glad Christie left them a surplus budget.

Clowns.

Auditor General confirm the Liberal government budget surplus and the NDP has already promised to spend it.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-c ... -1.4257651

The B.C. government ended the last fiscal year with a surplus of $2.7 billion, largely in line with an unaudited financial picture released about two months ago by the province's former B.C. Liberal government.


James also repeated an intention to invest in sustainable economic growth and talked about investment in social programs like housing and education.

"It's really tough for people out there to see the benefit of a surplus this size when they're struggling day to day to manage, when you take a look at the poverty rates in our province," she said.

"The B.C. government ended the last fiscal year with a surplus of $2.7 billion"

Surplus thanks to screwing us all on numerous levels notably ICBC.

Eby and other ICBC supporters single out the actions of former Liberal premier Gordon Campbell as marking the beginning of the corporation’s troubles.

Campbell required ICBC to keep much higher amounts of backup capital. The resulting stockpile proved irresistible to politicians in 2010 following the global financial meltdown, critics say, when the government began siphoning hundreds of millions of dollars of “excess capital” almost every year.

In all, the Liberals withdrew $1.2 billion from the lucrative optional side of ICBC’s business, and also transferred $1.4 billion to offset deficits on the compulsory side providing basic coverage beginning in 2012.

“The reason we’re in a bind right now is that there’s no more money left in the optional piggy bank,” said retired civil servant Rick McCandless, who has written extensively on ICBC.

NDP announces they are freezing BC Hydro rates.

but they are only asking the Utilities Commission for a 12 month rate freeze while they try to figure out BC Hydro's books. They aren't freezing anything. They have no authority to freeze rates.

Meanwhile BC Hydro has already said the need a 10% rate increase if Site C is cancelled in order to pay for mop up and cancellation clauses.

Greens are not happy with the bullshit....but not unhappy enough.

Here; I've got one for ya.
If you call Hydro in respect to something on your bill or anything for that matter, as you chat with them, they are
very helpful with advise in keeping your cost down.
They will tell you to insulate your hot water tank and then it wont have to work so hard and draw more power.
Use blankets, rolls of attic material and so on.
Of course they don't ask if you have a electric or a gas tank and they don't tell you to read your manufacturers
handbook on dos and don'ts.
Yes, very helpful. :stupid:

Horgan keeps another Liberal initiative going.

Has Andrew Weaver ever looked more pathetic?
