I watched this Twittmachine exchange (about the shifting shape of the latest BCLiberal gov't shiny deflector spin bauble) between an outraged Travis Lupick of the GStraight and two calm, cool and collected, not to mention very fine, fellows from Global, with interest, a week or so ago:
Why would I watch such an inane bit of insider proMedia kabuki with any interest whatsoever?
Because, as a lowly idiot blogger who has been paying attention, I knew precisely what the undeflectable (i.e. real) thing was that the shiny bauble being discussed was actually designed to deflect.
And yesterday, that undeflectable thing arrived with a vengeance (no foolin'):
...British Columbia has the lowest minimum wage in Canada as of today (April 1, 2016), with a rate of $10.45 per hour. The shift to dead last was due to New Brunswick’s rate increase to $10.65, which went into effect today...
Which just goes to show, once again, that...
The more things change under a BC Liberal government, the worse things get for average British Columbians who can't afford (in their wildest dreams) to even think about paying-to-play.
Meanwhile, many members of the Lotuslandian proMedia just keep-on-keepin' on as if what is ACTUALLY happening is not really happening at all because they've got all that super-important, super-duper top-diggedy-doggy-styled insider-access-only kabuki all figured out.
Unfortunately for the rest of us, in the end all of that kabuki crap means absolutely NOTHING.
Apologies for the all-caps, above, but these are people's lives we're talking about here.
