. A TIMES reader and new resident to Maple Ridge told of an experience at the Harry Hooge polling station, where a poll worker opened her ballot and looked at it, then apologized. But the reader is feeling violated.
I wish Cheryl all the luck in her fight to refuse a product that she rightly feels is a hazard to herself and her children's health and is being installed on her property against her wishes.
We have Conservative MPs like Randy Kamp who slavishly parrot the Dear Leader's talking points, and just do as they are told, without knowing or caring about the serious consequences of their actions.
Another one of those moments that you do not know whether to laugh or cry: the Conservatives claim they have created 800,000 new jobs.
It seems the native population does not have a lot of fans. It is claimed Idle No More is not being realistic.
Wayne Clark got his dates mixed up [Old bridge's lifespan far too short, Dec. 27 Letters, TIMES].
Who would have thought in 1964, when I helped build the Port Mann Bridge, the most expensive piece of highway in Canada at the time, that it would be torn down in my lifetime, 45 years later, especially considering the fact that it was only in 2006 that the bridge was totally refurbished and another lane added.
I would agree that a 2,500 per cent tax increase is much more than mind-blowing. I would think it borders on criminal.
The selling off of Canada's non-renewable oil resources for the next three decades is so typical for this Conservative dictatorship. This government has absolutely no mandate to implement such an important, long-reaching agreement with China, a Communist dictatorship.
Perpetual anti-capitalist writer Wayne Clark, in his letter about Iceland economy being saved by jailing the prime minister really is a true fantasy.
Here is what listening to the failed economic policies of the trickle-down pie-in-the-sky rhetoric of one per cent has gotten us. The U.S.A., Canada, and most European economies are in crisis, and working-and middle-classes are fighting for their financial lives, barely able to keep heads above water.
It would seem that, after Christy Clark promised a open and accountable government, she has opted to stick with the Gordon Campbell game plan of governing from dark, secret rooms with unelected CEOs with vested interests, once again ensuring that all the opposition, most of the Liberal caucus, and of course the public is excluded from the decision-making process.
As an avid reader of local news, I am often struck with a headache when I read Wayne Clark's verbal diarrhea flying the colours of the NDP. The incessant bashing of both the provincial Liberals and the federal Conservatives will not only continue, but likely increase, due to the coming May election.
Michael Sather has more smarts and more university degrees and integrity than the whole Liberal caucus put together.
Every once in a while you have to stir up your blood - do something crazy so you don't have to pinch yourself to see whether you are really alive or this world is just one big dream.
I am so sick and tired of articles and letters that go on and on about the extravagant pensions of public workers, because it is just not true.
Not only are the public and environment under attack by BC Liberals, but small business has been added to the combatants' list.
Mr. Wayne Clark has achieved omniscience: infinite knowledge. He knows the mind and choice of voters and speaks for "most of us out here."
One thing that is almost never talked about or factored in to the financial meltdown of America is very obvious, and it would seem an important piece of the puzzle of the failure of American capitalism.
