thanks lady c, i am going to try to read this during lunch. is there any simple explaination as to how this damn thing works? for the simple layman such as myself......
How much will the people of BC suffer if they keep shipping raw logs instead of developing value-added industries? How much will they suffer if the population does not have a good education? How much will they suffer when the average real wage keeps dropping? How much will they suffer if the fish farms kill off the wild species?
It's the same sort of plan that the NDP used to turn Saskatchewan into a have province, C.
Saskatchewan will receive money this year, but if things stay the same, they won't next year.
A poll released today. For BC Provincial election. This lookedlike best place to post numbers.
The NDP are the ones that brought Saskatchewan back from the verge of bankruptcy after the mismanagement and criminality of the PCs, Blue.
When the NDP left office in the early 1980's, the province was in the black and the sales tax was 5%. When they came back to power, the province was deeply in debt and the sales tax was 7%.
So tell me again about how great your Conservatives are.
The facts don't bear that out, Blue. The fact is that Conservatives have a long history of doing nothing but spending and driving countries into debt. It is part of the neo-conservative philosophy and it showed up under Reagan and Mulroney with brutal clarity. It showed up under Devine in Saskatchewan and Filmon here in Manitoba.
The fact is the Roy Romanow took a province that was driven to the verge of bankruptcy by Grant Devine and his neo-conservative policies and, along with Lorne Calvert, made it into a have province.

Reagan/Mulroney/Thatcher brought about the greatest boom in history. They FUNDAMENTALLY changed the way people did business, they diminshed most unions to a status that was more realistic, it took 4-8 years after each of them were out of office to realise the impact of the dramatic and powerful shift in culture which was most dramatic in the UK and the least in part of Canada. It takes those sorts of temporary debts to straighten things out.
They drove their countries deeply into debt. Their rule was like more a credit card binge than anything else, gftr.
Alberta has massive wealth in oil, Blue. Check out your heritage fund if you want an example of how badly the Conservatives have managed things. While you're at it, ask Ralphie why he signed one of the worst deals on earth with the oil companies. Your province could have even more money...enough to actually do some good for the people of Alberta instead of letting the health and education systems fall apart. Your brave leader decided not to do that.
And a source says you are buddies with Ernst Zundel, makes perfect sense y'all have paranoia in common.
