  1. Governments can intervene by crashing the economy. That's always a good way to start a housing reset. Who would imagine NDP governments in BC AND Alberta, at the same time! Fun times.....
  2. Too bad it's already come up, and he wasn't even premier yet! I wonder how much his union buddies are going to push him to bring this back now! Is he going to cave, and fight the Greens? Or is he going to mow down his own grass roots? Not an easy choice!
  3. BC is also not keen on extreme left wing politics. Horgan can try to govern from the centre. But if he does, the knives will come out from within his own party. There's a reason you don't have a big tent on the left. It's far to extreme and passionate to govern from the centre for long...... Ergo if your the liberals, just sit back and watch it implode. Unlike a majority government where you have to suffer for years, a small amount of infighting will trigger an election on it's own, exactly at the right time!
  4. Nope, just procedure. Now if she leaves a pile of dog crap in the premiers office, you might be on to something, but I doubt something like that happens.
  5. It's always better to vote for corrupt. Sure, they may steal a few eggs from the golden goose. But their not going to eat it for dinner.
  6. That's the legal system! I am right, your are wrong, and your just messing with the system! I am following procedure, and you are not! You don't have the people's interest in mind, I do!
  7. Na, Christy should just ask the LG to see if Horgan wants to form government. Let them start putting out their partisan stuff like banning the secret ballot in union elections (what is this, 1935?), wait for a nice little dust-up between the greens and NDP, and then start putting out votes that may eventually bring down the government on it's own. A year or two of the NDP will be the best ad campaign for the liberals ever! Especially if they do something crazy like cancel site C, or new regulations in mining or logging (a great way to get every interior mayor ready to burn down the legislature). Heck, just the general fear and the likely decrease in the economy will be all the wakeup call she would need from the province. A year or two of pointing out stupidity? Now THAT is a great campaign!
  8. I only take it as her trolling the greens and NDP.
  9. When I saw the picture all I thought was "Could he score". Stats say HELL YES! Then read the rest? Damn, this guy could totally bomb. But the ceiling? The thought brings a tear to my eyes. Not sure it exists. Bertuzzi with a brain. Dare to dream.
  10. I like this pick a lot. WHLer with some grit, room to grow, and skill. Nice!
  11. Nice spin! Or you can look at as "What a bunch of people flexible to change, willing to listen to the electorate. They are will to update their platform to keep ideologues like the NDP, who want to do things such as remove the secret ballot from union votes, to allow the large union sector to bully and beat those that don't hold their views into voting for them, and instead embrace democracy, by listening to the electorate! They are willing to adjust their platform for the good of all, and the will of the people". Wasn't too long ago that the province (run by the liberals) was on a spree of building wind farms and run of river power projects. And they brought the carbon tax in to legislation in the first place! So in other words, it's not like they can't court the greens and make them regret siding with the hard core socialists and their entitled backers.
  12. I got (last row mind you) but into my dream section of 308 (complete with centre ice views, and what might as well be personal entrance, bar, food, and bathroom) finally, so upgrades are out there. Mind you I have ten years seniority. Lot's of row 2 seats in good locations if I wanted to up the prices. One more year before I do that.......
  13. My card is forever screwed up. Never sure if it works, is up to date, or whatever.
  14. And in the right order too. I will be surprised if one isn't around.
  15. I swear the weather makes people forever pessimistic in Vancouver. Not sure the word for it, but it's almost like half the population spends it's time hoping for failure (insert something that doesn't perfectly align with one's own dream of how the team/province/life should work) so that they can be proven right. It's a need for approval so deep that it creates a shoot oneself in the foot kind of Shadenfreude. It's why I minimize my presence in this part....
