Thanks Harper… you ass. This is just so embarassing as a Canadian:

John MacDougal, President of the NRC, literally said, “Scientific discovery is not valuable unless it has commercial value”.

Gary Goodyear, the Canadian Minister of State for Science and Technology, also stated “There is [sic] only two reasons why we do science and technology. First is to create knowledge … second is to use that knowledge for social and economic benefit. Unfortunately, all too often the knowledge gained is opportunity lost.”

How depressing.

The NDP failed. End of story. This was their’s to lose and their lackluster campaign threw BC under the bus for 4 more years.

Government work was once synonymous with job security and stability. But these days furloughs, pay freezes and threats of further cuts are fomenting discontent. Some federal employees also say that public criticism of the federal government is also taking a toll.

Furloughs Only The Latest Blow To Federal Worker Morale (via npr)

I think this completely applies to public servants in Canada, both federally and provincially.

24 Hours newspaper “Opinion” article written by BC Liberal campaign advisor.


"NDP hypocrisy stunning in scale, audacity" - Diamond Isinger, 24 Hours

http://vancouver.24hrs.ca/2013/05/06/ndp-hypocrisy-stunning-in-scale-audacity#dsq-form-area


How is this even a published article?

Diamond Isinger WORKS for the BC Liberals! This is just propaganda from a Libs campaign strategist. 24 Hours should be ashamed they’d even publish this as “opinion”.

What a joke.

"Why won’t Clark commit to being either against the pipelines, like BC New Democrat Leader Adrian Dix and BC Green Party Leader Jane Sterk, or in favour, like BC Conservative leader John Cummins?

Whether it’s oil pipelines, the province’s $11-billion debt increase in just two years, job losses, or claims this year’s budget is “balanced”, it’s abundantly clear the BC Liberals made a big mistake when they chose Clark as their leader.

Voters should not make the same mistake May 14.”

"Chances are the next government of B.C. will be chosen by approximately half of all eligible voters. That means that even in a landslide the winning party will probably have the support of no more than a quarter of all the province’s citizens."

- Tom Barrett, The Tyee

"People who want politics to be better and are staying away because it’s not better reinforce the bad side of politics… If they want politics that’s more focused on the centre, that’s more open to compromise and more balanced, they need to show up so that campaign strategists see them as people likely to vote and then seek their support.

So long as they stay home, the campaign strategists are going to focus on mobilizing their base, which is going to mean wedge issues and fear politics.”

"I have been conflicted beyond words these past weeks. You see, the very base of voters who will likely help Mary (Polak) (BC Liberals) get re-elected in just one-week’s time are made up of individuals who hold hateful attitudes towards the community I am a part of."

-Todd Hauptman, ex-BC Liberal campaign manager for Mary Polak

British Columbians can’t mock “crazy, American right-wing politics”, then go vote BC Liberals.


If its not hypocritical, it becomes moronic.

"Despite the fact that (Gordon) Campbell received briefing binders from finance bureaucrats stating that the defeated NDP government had left a record- breaking surplus of $1.5 billion on the province’s books (a fact later confirmed by the auditor general), the new premier was loath to acknowledge or credit his political foes’ fiscal policies."




"Even worse for the new government, when the 2000-01 public accounts were made public, they would show that the defeated NDP had left the biggest surplus in B.C. history."
