People think that the best sports in B.C. are hockey, fishing, skiing and playing games on their iPhones.
The very best gamer, bar none, is watching bureaucrats, mandarins, elected officilas and all the other agents of the devil play with words.
It's called The Spin Cycle.
The name of the game is to take the obvious and verbally twist it into something unrecognizable, although usually risible.
Prime example from yesterday's headlines:

Why would WorkSafeBC, whose mandate and mission are explained in its monicker, go out of its way to make life more dangerous for late night and over night workers?
As always, follow the money.
The BC Federation of Labour and others petitioned long and hard to have the government pass "Grant's Law," in honor of the young man who was dragged to his death when he tried to stop a punk pulling a "gas & dash" at an all-night gas station.
Now, two years later, the government is bowing to the whining from business owners who claim that keeping their employees safe is too costly. Now WorkSafeBC is pulling a vanilla on the rules.
Where is the "Families First" premier?
