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.

Hey Baubles and Dude, have you guys had to do any new mandated provincial certification this year?

My profession, they brought in a supervisors regulation. One out of every 4 workers has to have a supervisors ticket. $100, open book 100 questions, 1 month time limit and you get 3 tries. Test is on the mines act and associated regs. A fucking money grab. Ticket is good for 5yrs.

I've heard about some folks in the construction business having to do 2-3 day courses at ~$2,000 plus lost wages/business.

Did you folks get nailed with any of this shit?
I missed this. Yes I’ve had to certify and re certify for a few things that are pretty much useless to me. Company picked up the tab but it’s just mind numbing sitting in front of a computer doing this nonsense

NDP brings back photo radar. Good times. More ammo to throw these clowns out in a couple years. Hopefully a few voters wake the hell up. Gas prices are through the roof. Forestry and Mining in the toilet again.

Forestry and mining are stagnated by increased redtape and regulation. I'm in the midst of permitting one drill hole on a project with over three hundred current drill holes in the ground. One issue is the lack of expertise in the current group of inspectors. I could very well be dealing with a paper pusher who used to work at Ministry of Health but has used seniority to land a job as a mines inspector at the Ministry of Natural Resources.

Then there is the aboriginal review and negotiations......One Band, immediately upon receiving a permit application sends out a letter (ransom note) demanding payment of a review fee. I've met with other Bands where members of the Band Council have arrived drunk at 10am. Sure work out a deal and offer employment to Band members, only to have 60% absentee rates, 90% late arrival/early leaving of the job site.

Forestry is a dead market these days since the near curtailment of log exports, collapse of the US market and a win for the US in the latest softwood court case. One logging contractor I know did a recent job where all wood over 36" diameter was stacked and burnt. Beautiful clear fir that he had to bring hand faller in for because the bunchers couldn't handle it, dropped and from the but up to where it fell under 36" diameter was hauled off to a burn pile. Fucking criminal.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Hey Blob, what is wrong with this?

if it stops dumb asses from running red lights and killing people then why do you hate it? If you obey the law then you will never be impacted by this but I have seen enough door knobs to say yes to this. It does not discriminate against old/young/vehicle driven, past driving record or anything. It will ONLY ticket you if you BREAK the law in an unsafe manner.

Still want the NDP out but I am all good with these in place.

If it causes dumb asses to slam on their brakes immediately on yellow it will cause rear-enders.

If it causes dumb asses turning left to accelerate immediately on yellow it will cause head-ons.

Dumb asses will do dumb ass things to avoid dumb ass photo radar tickets.

Unless you're impacted in an intersection by the kind of on yellow dumb asses I just mentioned.

Please debate the points made in the post rather than going all ad hominem on yours truly.

Your cooperation in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
