Carbon tax makes Campbell a 'hero'

Dion praises B.C. premier at campaign stop in Burnaby, really....hahahaha...

You know the part that astonishes me?

That actual breathing humanoids would come out to hear Dion.

Is the Solitaire Game on their laptop not functioning?

You know what would be great?

If Stephane Dion got one of those hats from the 80's with the fake seagull poop on them.

I don't know why, but I'd laugh hard for days at it...heck, it could get him an extra vote or three!

With THREE elections looming I have this wish that Mr.Peanut would come back.
He made more sense than all the politicians that we are suffering from.
Pretty bad, isn't it?

The provincial carbon tax is a gas tax, a hedge against TransLink's ultimate failure. Here are the problems:

1) GVRD CEO evidently told a North Shore council that TransLink would not have the funds to support RAV after 2012.

2) Translink will be operating at an annual $150 million deficit by 2012.

3) The province has promised $14 billion in transit spending (yours and mine tax money) which includes the $2.5 billion RAV $8 billion including debt servicing and a $3 billion subway to UBC and a $3 billion refurbishment of the Expo Line including a 10 km. extension in Surrey.

This doesn't include Gateway financing.

You can see, Campbell needs an insurance gas tax - so to be politically correct and attract the 'Green' votes.

I sent such amemo to a Vancouver Sun reporter who rudely responded that I was full of it!
