Don't know about you, but this codswallop about 'consulting' with British Columbians to find out what they really think about the difference between the 2nd and 3rd Monday in February had smoke coming out of my ears last week.
And I was going to write about it.
But a letter writer to the VSun from Vernon, Lloyd Atkins, beat me to it and said it much better than I ever could:
"...British Columbians are getting a chance to voice their opinion on which of two Mondays in February is the best day for the province's new statutory holiday.
Gee whiz, do you really think British Columbians need to be consulted on such a trivial matter? What a crock.
This is just another politically motivated diversion for smiley-face photo ops.
Why doesn't Clark ask British Columbians if they are in favour of an investigation into the BC Rail scandal?..."
If you think about this from the slice 'n dicing of the demographic point of view you can see what the so-called wizards behind the curtain are really up to (just think of those splits where the Snook is really in trouble - it has to do with the doubling-up of a certain chromosome).
And that's what really galls me.
Because these people are playing us all for saps, regardless the particular demo-label/barcode they have affixed to the forehead of each and every one of us.
