REPORTING · 12th August 2010
Let’s see, the common guy follows the rules to get justice and stand up for his fellow man and he gets bitch slapped. Well now, how do you think Zalm will proceed?
In my opinion, Bill Vanderzalm and Chris Delaney are not common guys but regardless they are standing up for the common guy, the guy who figures, “screw this, I’m not going to take it any more.” And yet they find themselves facing the judicial circus.
Anyone who has been in court for any matter which involves the government knows the process is absurd. There is no process actually. It is a bunch of guys and gals who know each other too well. A small circle of individuals who decide how things are going to go in the theater called ‘Court’.
Here is the deal.
The voting public was successful. The agreed upon number of signatures was met. The initiative to order/demand a recall of the HST was an unqualified success. But.
A group of six business associations launched a court action against Vanderzalms initiative just before Canada Day. Just as it was appearing that Zalm was going to succeed. The Mining Association of BC is the major party to this challenge. The BC elections officer in charge of acting on the success of Vanderzalm’s initiative stated they would not proceed with the process until this court challenge was heard.
Following the good order of process means waiting for the courts to hear the challenge by the BC mining association.
BC has always had a corrupt Court process. How many Attorney Generals have resigned? How many special prosecutors have been compromised?
And then there is the time duration we must endure. The RCMP raid on the BC legislature regarding drugs, corruption and the sale of BC Rail has yet to be resolved; the case is mired in legal wrangling and the challenges of corrupt legal beagles.
If anyone believes Zalms success will go anywhere, look back at the BC Rail trial. The raid by the RCMP happened on December 28, 2003. The trial and exposure of the corruption is still in the courts.
So are you ready for the truth? Can you handle it? You are a peon and nothing you do or your superiors, who work on your behalf do, will change your futile existence.
Welcome to BC, Fantasy Island. “Fantastic.” Let’s go gamble and give our cash to the Gambino family. Opps I mean the Campbell Family. Oh, what’s the difference?

Response: People power is real. The corruption and behind-closed-door deals can only continue if we continue to do nothing about it. Taken a look at any truly socialist governments lately? Have you heard that free post-secondary education, decent and free child-care for the working class, properly funded public K-12 education and health care exists in such countries? Have you wondered why in some European countries the government doesn't run rough-shod over it's citizens? Maybe it's because the people there are willing to put their heart & soul into fighting back! How much time have you taken lately to become well-informed about exactly what is going on in politics? How much money have you given to groups that ARE fighting back right here in this province? How much of your time have you given to speaking to others about real solutions that can create real change? Crying about it won't help. People have the power, if they would only use it.
