[Editor's Note: Right on Robin! This is one of your more hard-hitting pieces and a welcome relief to all the continuous mind-control (damage-control?) drivel that the Zionist-owned and controlled media are spoon feeding the B.C. electorate.
If I had it in my power to do I would organize a province-wide campaign to raise you up to the level of Leader of the New Democratic Party of B.C. No one that I know of possesses the knowledge, the integrity, the honesty, the fortitude (and, most of all, the BALLS!) to tackle and expose these lowlife lizzy corporate maurauders now in possession of the people's purse, their signing authority for sovereignty and their future!
I believe that even beyond Glen Clark, you could galvanize the dispossessed and the wavering multitude and breath new life into this tired and emasculated party of worn-out socialists, insurgent zionists, and middle of the road malcontents.
Thanks again for an incisive work and thanks for permission to reprint it here at Radicalpress.com. Thanks too to www.vivelecanada.ca for their kind permission to reprint Robin's articles.]
Criminal Government in B.C. Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Growing Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ and Growing Resistance To It
by Robin Mathews
January 25, 2007
The real face of British Columbia is hard to see because the normal reflectors are absent. Press and media are servants of the same forces that the premier, Gordon Campbell, serves – as I will show here. Polling in the Province is a joke, probably for the same reason. Boards of Trade and like Ã¢â‚¬Å“professionalÃ¢â‚¬Â organizations are blatant servants of the Campbell government. Ã¢â‚¬Å“IndependentÃ¢â‚¬Â arbitrators and commissions have been bought, defeated by budget cuts, castrated by appointment machinery, and subverted by forms of regulation and restructuring. The present Auditor General, for instance, whose officeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s budget has been slashed, reports as if he is reporting to Josef Stalin and not to the B.C. legislature and people. (It just happens the former Auditor General left claiming underfunding, and with a few unfinished hot potato issues before him. IsnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t it true that no one with any self-respect would have taken on the job without restoration of budget and firm public commitments of non-interference from the Gordon Campbell cabinet?)
At a time when opposition is most necessary, it is least evident. But that is no surprise. Fear, the desire for anonymity amidst shady operation, the employment of dependable hacks, the desire of some to Ã¢â‚¬Å“climbÃ¢â‚¬Â at any price, payment of what I have called in an earlier column Ã¢â‚¬Å“bribery levelÃ¢â‚¬Â salaries, and other methods to encourage Ã¢â‚¬Å“cooperationÃ¢â‚¬Â are effective.
The NDP of Carole James is providing opposition to a government that is a figment of her imagination. The NDP bumps against the real forces only occasionally and by accident. The unions, mostly, share the Carole James view, or Ã¢â‚¬â€œ worse Ã¢â‚¬â€œ are rumoured to be investing in some of the ugliest of the corporate schemes to rob British Columbians of public wealth and public power. Or they are curling up in a warm corner saying: Ã¢â‚¬Å“this isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really a UNION concernÃ¢â‚¬Â.
