There is no such thing as open government, not even if our premier in BC, Christy Clark says there is, since she should know, since she was around when the BC Rail scandal broke and until the Liberals come clean on the whole affair since a noose still hangs around their necks there will never be open government in BC.
I cannot believe the Liberals in BC today, ok this week.
Not a month ago, but before the riots in Vancouver BC, the provincial government could’nt afford to pay the sheriffs to stand in court and escort prisoners. The Ministry was trying to find money within their ministry to pay them.
Fast forward a month and the Premier is now handing money out that it must have printed in the past month or they won a lottery they did’nt tell us, the taxpayers of BC, since so far they have handed out just shy on 10 million dollars in the past week to two different causes. On Monday June 27 2011, the premier committed $550,000 towards a new facility that will train workers to build and repair ships. See article B.C. contributes $550,000 to new shipbuilding training facility.
Not twenty four house later she’s announcing 7.5 million dollars to help get the Vancouver Island rail back on track but this is on condition that the belt tightening federal government come through with the same amount See Article B.C. commits to Vancouver Island rail upgrades.
So where did the money come from, since they could’nt afford this a month ago or have the money presses been working overtime in the basement of the legislature in Victoria BC.
