ElectionBC's FRPC makes mistakes? Donations accepted for 2103 BC Liberals Mike de Jong and Bill Bennett

ElectionsBC never makes a mistake, they are detailed in every aspect of their mandate right down to counting the spaces in the HST application, therefore it should come as surprise to find inputting errors when it comes to dates of contributions.


2103?????  Click Twice on the DATE column
It would appear that ElectionsBC allows contributions to political parties 90 years in advance. Has the BC Liberal Party cashed the cheque or does it have to sit on it until the Spring of 2103?


How about the instances of misspelling last names which creates the problem that ElectionsBC then has 'two people's' totals when in fact there is only one ... person.  Do they even know?

Example of a Fentanyl overdose: BC Solicitor Minister Mike Morris is about to explain the differences between "Civil Gorteiture and Forfeiture Crime and Remediation Grants"

Hey Mike shouldn't it be Forfeiture ... Capital 'F' and Lower case 'f'

               and not Capital 'G' and lower case 't'

Civil Gorteiture Crime Prevention and Remediation Grants


2012/2013

 eg.

The BC Liberal government paid the B.C. Lions, a professional football club, to do community work dealing with bullying in 2013, and then boosted the Lions grant money to $40,000 for 2015 by Coralee Oakes.

RCMP Fentanyl Pill Presser raids not mentioned by West Kelowna MLA Christy Clark baliwick Dec. 2015 - March 2016. Why did she wait until late November 2016?

On December 12, 2015 the RCMP were advised by Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) of the interception of a package being imported from overseas which contained a piece of pharmaceutical equipment. The package was destined for a location in West Kelowna addressed to a man known to police. 

West Kelowna is Premier Christy Clark's riding.
March 2nd, 2016 the RCMP executed a search warrant at a commercial property in the 2600 block of Auburn Crescent with the assistance of the RCMP’s Federal Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement and Response Team (CLEAR), the West Kelowna Fire Department and the BC Ambulance Service. 

No mention by the Press (news media) of the influx of Fentanyl to Kelowna or Vernon or Kamloops.


Last week Premier Christy Clark stood on the Press' Pill soapbox to alert the public to the hotbeds of Fentanyl use at both Masset and Vancouver.  Turns out she was wrong.

Two days later, Solicitor Minister, ex-RCMP officer, Mike Morris went to the defense of his Leader, denying that the Premier was at fault because the two police forces had made errors.  (No Proof)



Last year there was a Major Fentanyl bust in the West Kelowna riding.


A search warrant was also executed at a rural property in the 700 block of Petterson Road in West Kelowna:
  • An estimated 800 fake OxyContin pills suspected to be laced with Fentanyl;
  • Several gold bars, which police suspect may be related to a reported theft.

Fentanyl West Kelowna raid
The Kelowna RCMP SEU have also been successful in shutting down other similar illegal drug operations throughout the Kelowna Region over the past few months:
  • File #2015-61383 On November 2, 2015 the Kelowna RCMP SEU intercepted an imported package destined for an address in the 1500 block of Pandosy Street in Kelowna. The package contained 24.5 grams of Fentanyl;
  • File #2015-68300 On December 17, 2015 the Kelowna RCMP SEU executed a search warrant at the property located in the 400 block of Neave Court (Just south of UBC)in Kelowna. The search yielded an industrial grade pill press, which investigators say showed signs of use as it was believed to be heavily contaminated with Fentanyl, and a loaded firearm. As a result of this investigation a 22-year-old Kelowna woman and a 28-year-old West Kelowna man each face potential charges under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act of importing a schedule six substance, production for the purpose of trafficking, possession for the purpose of trafficking, as well as possession and unsafe storage of a firearm;
  • File #2016-5357 On March 2nd, 2016 the Kelowna RCMP SEU executed a search warrant at a property located in the 11000 block of Cemetary Road in Lake Country, as well as another at a property in the 300 block of Sandpiper Road in Kelowna. These searches yielded various amounts and types of illegal drugs, several firearms, including a loaded .45 calibre hand gun, multiple stolen bicycles and a set of brass knuckles. A 56-year-old Lake Country man faces potential charges of trafficking in a controlled substance as well as a firearms related offence;

The Premier's Fentanyl pill pushing constituents are killing off other constituents (British Columbia) and she does absolutely nothing.  No Press releases, no Press, No Government News, No Health Minister, No Solicitor General, and No Pamela Martin to intercede on her behalf.

Nothing until downtown Masset shows on on the (HST) radar screen along with Vancouver, and the towns police forces got it wrong.  Blame the Messengers.

BC Liberals Christy, Mike and Terry still stand by their original claim of 'Fentanyl Laced Marijuana Innuendo' distractions

With all the sounds of scurrying like rats seeking a safe haven from the public enlightenments that there is no record, but there are errors, of stacks of media cheese Fentanyl laced marijuana.

With a cursory look at Vancouver's Crime Heat Maps, resident Premier Leader Christy Clark could have ascertained just how invalid her claims would look like before taking a stand at the limp microphone.

The draw back to this sort of map would just draw the users to the hot spots, eh.  Why go to UBC...oops that's not part of Vancouver.

RossK:
An official announcement from the Clarklandian Minister of Public Safety released last night, Friday November 18th at 7:03pm (i.e. less than one hour after a particular GlobalBC 'news' item):

The Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General Mike Morris has issued the following statement on the overdose crisis:

"I’d like to put a stop to the distraction from the deadly serious issue of our overdose crisis that has been taking place today, with regard to Premier Christy Clark's comments that we had a confirmed case of marijuana laced with fentanyl.

"As we’ve all heard from the Vancouver Police Department, this was reported in error, and we’ve also heard from the RCMP that the reports out of Masset earlier this week are also not confirmed.

"With that now clear, let’s move forward in our fight against this deadly drug. We continue to warn the public that any and all drugs can be tainted with fentanyl, including marijuana. We implore everyone to take this caution seriously as we are seeing an average of two people dying a day in this crisis in our province. Let’s turn our focus back to saving lives."

The statistical data used for these maps are gathered from PRIME (Police Records Information Management Environment) and represent actual crime reported to the Vancouver Police Department.
Due to a possible lag time in the data, it is possible that a very small number of offences could be absent.

Speaking to reporters today, Clark said the toxic narcotic had turned up in pot seized by Vancouver cops.

“Vancouver police did a major seizure, they found cocaine with fentanyl, heroin with fentanyl, methamphetamine with fentanyl and marijuana with fentanyl,” she said.

It’s a worrying claim, but it’s also one that’s news to Vancouver Coastal Health’s Chief Medical Health Officer Patricia Daly.

“I can only speak for what we know in the Vancouver Coastal Region, and we haven’t had any reports of fentanyl contamination of marijuana here at this point,” she said.

Water Management for Oil and Gas Activity BC Oil & Gas Commission 2015 Annual Report. Source Lake Louise moved to Northern BC

Bluffs and the Hotel are to Left which means the canoe rentals are to the right (north)
Why would the BC Oil and Gas Commission ... commission a report to British Columbians using a lake that sort of looks like pristine Lake Louise in Banff National Park, ... as a SOURCE for their fracking water supply in Northern British Columbia, eh?

Stock Photo, maybe, but never with the bluff's to the south (left).  Was the image intentionally flipped to deceive the public that the lake is somewhere in 'British Columbia'?

Which raises the question:

Is the information that the BC Oil and Gas Commission spews out every year actually true?  Are the financial realities of oil and gas revenue askew? Or more like this from Norman Farrell's In-Sight.

Has BC Chief Electoral Officer Keith Archer COUNTED the WORDS and SPACES in the third version of the Fire and Police bargaining petition to include Paramedics?

Counting the words???  HST Initiative test covered by RossK at The Gazetteer

Counter of words and Spaces   Temp. Chief Electoral Officer ... James Craig

Timeline




Application Approved for Initiative Petition to Amend the Fire and Police Services Collective Bargaining Act  November 10, 2016


BC's Chief Electoral Officer, Keith Archer, has granted approval in principle on an initiative petition application.  The petition will be issued to proponent Joshua Henshaw on Monday, January 9, 2017.  The title of the initiative to amend the Fire and Police Services Collective Bargaining Act.

"This initiative petition application is the tenth to be approved since the legislation came into force in 1995", says Archer.

Any registered voter can apply to have a petition issued to gather support for a legislative proposal.  After the petition is issued, the proponent will have 90 days to canvass and collect signatures of at least 10% of the registered voters in each of British Columbia's 85 electoral districts.

Individuals or organizations who intend to oppose the initiative, conduct initiative advertising, or canvass for signatures must be registered with Elections BC.  The deadline to apply to be an opponent of the iniative is Monday, December 12, 2016.


 Summary of Legislative Proposal Initiative

The draft Bill proposes to amend the Fire and Police Services Collective Bargaining Act (the Act) to give ambulance paramedics the same collective bargaining rights as firefighters and police officers.  The draft Bill would retitle the Act to the Ambulance, Fire and Police Services Collective Bargaining Act, change the definition of 'employer' under the Act to include employer of paramedics' union, and define 'paramedics union' as a bargain in unit in which the majority of employees are engaged in ambulance paramedic duties.  The draft Bill would also remove the right of ambulance paramedics to strike and the right of their employer to lockout during an impasse in collective bargaining, and would require resolution of the impasse through binding arbitrations.  Consequently, the draft Bill would remove the paramedics' union as a bargaining unit under the Health Authorities Act.

Premier Gordon Campbell and his Education Minister Christy Clark .....


http://members.shaw.ca/polsci110/krieger.htm

On Oct. 14, 2005, The Tyee online newspaper (thetyee.ca) published a cartoon by Bob Krieger that pointedly attacked Gordon Campbell, the premier of British Columbia. The cartoon used Campbell's infamous DUI mugshot from Hawaii with the caption, "Teachers have to respect the law." [BC teachers were on an illegal strike at the time.]

Why is Senator Richard Neufeld, a former BC Liberal MLA, the only Senator to complain about the use of the word 'Bitches'?

Does Richard Neufeld still have his BC Liberal Party membership card?  Was his Letter to the Editor prompted by the BC Liberal Party? .... by the Premier?

Hmmmm.... 

We're not sure whether BC Senator Neufeld is disgusted with the use of the word 'Bitches', or more disgusted with the fact that his apparent archenemy, West Moberly Chief Roland Willson, is a duly elected First Nations Leader, that DOES represent 'his people' ..... since 2000.

..... whereas Senator Neufeld WASN'T duly elected by British Columbians, nor those same West Moberly First Nations people that he is appalled with. 

Nor did Prince Edward Islanders get to elect their Cavendish Mike Duffy son to the Senate!   All that high falutin rewarding was done by Prime Minister Steven Harper ....

December 22, 2008
.... As for his position as MLA, Richard will resign and the seat will sit vacant until the May provincial election.  The Premier (Gordon Campbell) will also designate a new person to take over Richard’s responsibilities as Minister of Energy Mines and Petroleum Resources.

Mr. Neufeld is one of three BC residents on the Prime Minister’s apppointment list, which also includes CTV’S highly popular veteran broadcast journalist, Mike Duffy. Seven of the new senators come from Atlantic Canada, four from Quebec, two from Ontario and one each, from Saskatchewan and the Yukon.   Energetic City news

November 4, 2016,  The Province (newspaper), PostMedia just had to point out Neufeld's job description.

The Province Letters to the Editor:

 Richard Neufeld is a senator for British Columbia
Last week, I was appalled when I saw a post on Facebook from Roland Willson, the West Moberly First Nations chief.  He refers to B.C. Premier Christy Clark and BC Hydro CEO Jessica McDonald as “evil bitches” and gives them both the middle finger with a cartoon photo.

Roland’s comments are offensive and highly disrespectful. It disgusts me that a First Nations leader who has been elected since 2000 to represent his people would resort to such measures.  ..... snipped

*********************
Senator Richard Neufeld's Website

Since Prime Minister Harper appointed me to the Senate in 2008, I am privileged to represent the people of British Columbia within both the Senate and the Government Caucus.

I invite you to navigate my website for additional information about what we do in Ottawa and what it means to the people of British Columbia.  

It has been and continues to be an honour for me to represent the people of British Columbia, and I look forward to continuing to serve for many more years ahead.

PS

The Senator is appalled, whereas the  Province Letters to the Editor:   .... is appal ???//

 

PPS

Mr. Richard Neufeld didn't write a letter in support of the Pacific NorthWest LNG Project, he left that up to Senator Richard Neufeld  using the Senate official letterhead.  

If anyone is in doubt about the role of the Senate, Duffy included, its this:
In the Senate Chamber, Canada’s 105 senators take part in formal debate on current affairs. Here, senators’ main job is to examine bills proposed by the Government. Bills in the Senate go through a similar process of debate as in the House of Commons, and a bill must pass the Senate before it can become law. Any senator may take part in the debate on a bill and propose amendments. In addition, senators may propose their own bills and initiate debates in the Chamber. 

Senators also work in committees, groups of 5 to 15 senators who focus on a specific policy area. These committees closely study bills sent to them by the Senate, calling witnesses to help them understand the legislation and its potential impact. Committees also conduct longer-term studies on topics in their area of interest.
 
 Consideration: Not to use the Senate Letterhead for personal endorsement of private interests

What Is Beriberi?

Beriberi is a disease caused by a vitamin B1 (thiamine) deficiency. There are two types of the disease: wet beriberi and dry beriberi. Wet beriberi affects the heart and circulatory system. In extreme cases, wet beriberi can cause heart failure. Dry beriberi damages the nerves and can lead to a loss of muscle strength and eventually, muscle paralysis. Beriberi can be life-threatening if it isn’t treated.

Oil tankers and barges are double hull; Escort Tugs Single Hull!!! Bella Bella in Shock BOOM, SNAPPED!! Kinder Morgan Oil

The Gazetteer
   This Saturday In Clarkland... Breaking Booms And Spreading Oil Is NOT A World Class Spill Response.

UPDATE Ingmar Lee:  "Friends. Currently, the NYC-registered pusher-tug, Nathan E Stewart and its 10,000-capacity barge are moored at Burnaby Mountain, - at the Kinder Morgan terminal, where it is loading up for its voyage north. The barge/tug combo was anchored near 2nd Narrows for the past few days, and has now moved to the terminal. I expect it to head north soon. ......"

"This "pusher tug/barge combo" (the tug fits into a deep notch built into the stern of the tanker, from where it pushes the barge along) departs loaded several times a month, from either Everett, or Anacortes Washington,or Burnaby Mountain, Vancouver, and then heads up through Georgia Strait, often through Sabine Channel, through Johnstone Strait, Fitz Hugh, right past Bella Bella, and on up to Alaska. ...."

'Nathan E. Stewart' is aka 'Ludwig E.'
The tug was named for a K-Sea Transportation Partnership employee. Who was Mate onboard the tug Davis Sea, who was killed on the job.




***************************


Seaspan is not on the rocks near Bella Bella above but Seaspan is a major player in the waters of British Columbia, especially in Burrard Inlet where Kinder Morgan wants to expand their double tracking of oil pipelines to the coast.

ONE of the FIVE conditions that Christy Clark said would have to be reconciled before she would give the green light to oil exports out of Burrard Inlet, LNG out of Howe Sound, LNG/OIL out of Kitimat via Douglas Channel, and Prince Rupert, is by having a world class spill response team.

They have totally ignored the fact ..... that the tugs have a single hull.



Seaspan: 1970/1980's  'modern' fleet of tugs without double hulls.














 **************************

Ass backwards planning in calm waters while they wait for storm conditions to appear... and they have.

Once the tug’s fuel tanks are emptied, there are plans to lift it from the water by crane and carry it on a barge from the area.

BC Ferries Spirit Class conversion to LNG   will take 2500 vehicles off the road per year to reduce CO2 by 12,000 tons annually... which begs the question:

  Haven't they already achieved that goal by eliminating ferry routes and sailing times per day/week?

In 2016 basing on RMDC concept design renowned Canadian operator BC Ferries awarded Remontowa Shiprepair Yard with mid-life upgrades contract for Spirit Class Ferries. “Spirit of British Columbia” (built in 1993) and “Spirit of Vancouver Island” (built in 1994) will be converted to operate on liquefied natural gas (LNG). In addition safety systems will be upgraded, the passenger areas will receive an interior design refresh. Renewal of navigation equipment, propulsion equipment components including rudders, steering systems, bow thrusters and propeller blades will be carried out. Energy consumption will be reduced by installation of LED lighting and more efficient HVAC system. RMDC will provide complete basic and detail design as well as design supervision during conversion. Complete design is to be prepared before conversion works start (planned for third quarter 2017 – first  vessel and 2018- second one) to shortened conversion time in consequence ferries out of service time. Utilizing LNG to fuel the vessels, according to Owners’ calculations they expect to reduce CO2 emissions by 12,000 tons annually, the equivalent of taking approx. 2500 vehicles off the road per year. Both vessels service Tsawwassen – Swartz Bay run in British Columbia Province, the busiest route in the fleet.
