Looks like Andrew Wilkinson laid another rotten egg; this time in relation to fuel prices. Oh? When gas prices spiked to $1.70 (or higher) per litre a few months ago, it triggered the NDP to convene an inquiry to ascertain the reasons why BC's gas prices were so out of tune with the rest of … Continue reading The brilliance of the gas price inquiry
The BCUC approved the ICBC proposal on a basic insurance product for ride hailing corporations ahead of the anticipated September 16 legalization date. The BC Liberals found a way to complain about it. The angle? The product is too cheap and other drivers will have to subsidize ride hailing corporations as a result. This is … Continue reading BC Liberals find new ways to look pathetic over ride hailing
When it comes to the license requirements for ride hailing drivers when the new regulations kick in, these new drivers will be required to have a class 4 license. That's it. The angry BC Liberal side is saying this is an unfair and onerous weight to carry, I say otherwise. The stats suggest that on … Continue reading License requirements matter
If you're just tuning in, you might be forgiven for thinking that the BC Liberals have been the champion of ride hailing services the whole time. You'd be wrong. Very wrong. As recently as 2014, a year after the '13 election, the BC Liberal transportation minister was openly threatening fines and/or jail time for such … Continue reading BC Liberals are hypocrites on ride hailing
There are those to be sure who don't like the idea of the ride hailing service, but it's here and unavoidable now. What's interesting now is the desperate flailing of certain BC Liberal partisans trying to gain a wedge issue in the thing they had 8 years to deliver but only made a deathbed conversion … Continue reading Ride hailing is coming quickly to BC and the NDP can take credit for it
Here it is. The narrative is changing to accuse the NDP of sinking personal wealth through the various housing countermeasures they've initiated. Let's clarify why this is. The BC Liberals deregulated the housing market over a decade ago while simultaneously turning lethargic over money laundering in BC.￼ This left the door open for criminal money … Continue reading BC media adopting BC Liberal talking points. Again.
Trickle down economics has never worked. Ever. Yet it was tried again here in BC when the BC Liberals took office in 2001 with results that literally anyone could have predicted. Now a former Gordon Campbell cabinet minister reflects back on the times that were and thinks it wasn't good times. We could have told … Continue reading Repeat after me: “tax cuts do not pay for themselves”
Whoops. Too late, they did. How did we end up here? The NDP government tried to assert their right as a provincial government to protect rivers, streams and our coastline. As it turns out, the environment wasn't considered in this judgement, only a jurisdiction issue. Which strikes me as odd, as the means the federal … Continue reading Andrew Wilkinson and his BC Liberals would be wise not to do a victory lap on the appeals court decision.
A sad 'editorial' published by Vaughn Palmer today misses the mark and faces a legitimate fact check. The BC Liberals, desperate for an angle to attack the NDP have railed against the unusually high gas prices in BC, specifically in the lower mainland. They're doing this by attacking the BC carbon tax that they would … Continue reading Palmer’s advertorial for BC Liberal a sad display of using political talking points to draft “editorials”
