This Day In Clarkland...The (Lack Of A) Jobs Boom In British Columbia.


320 jobs per month generated during the last eight years of GordCo, Inc. and Clarklandia.

Which, as you might expect, puts us way, way behind the other big population provinces:

As Integrity BC, who did the analysis above, has pointed out...

At this rate it will take Two Hundred and Fifty-Nine years to get to our fine premier's million job promise.

Pretty much puts to rest Ron Obvious' claim that the Wizards of Clarklandia have unquestionably worked wonders for our economy.

Or some such thing.

Of course, Mr. Obvious of the Globe has also written that the abject LNG failure means, essentially, nothing given all that unquestioned economic success...Seriously.

Site C and Massey will be a 15,000,000,000(15 Billion)dollar Negative Multiplier of Government Debt?

Massey a proxy to export us coal to china on Panamax super tankers.
Fraser surrey docks foreign owned?
thats why removal of tunnel is wanted to dredge for deeper Panamax ship depth?
Which means moving hydro cables in tunnel also?
Giant corporate welfare?

Its hard to believe much of what the B.C. Lieberals say.

Then of course we need to ask what type of jobs. We still have the highest rate of child poverty in Canada, so that means, the jobs aren't paying enough for kids' parents to earn a living wage. Jobs at min. wage are under the poverty line whether you're single or part of a family unit.

If the province is doing as well as alleged, why oh why are they clawing back the increase from the disabled's pensions. We know that when they stopped clawing back the $14M a year from children, whose parents were on disability, they lost that money. What they are clawing back via charging for bus passes is $7M so I guess we really aren't doing well at all. If you have to take money back from the most vulnerable in this province you have to be dead broke, which in my opinion we are. Of course it could be that Stillwell and Clark hate the disabled and want to cause them maximum pAin and suffering and increase their hopsitalization and suicde rates. I just can't figure anything else out, if B.C. is doing just so well. the B.C. Lieberals are either lying or they are taking "the right to die" to the next level by ensuring some disabled may die because of lack of money.

Most of the province's are competing to make their most poor and vulnerable that they move to another province.
These people aren't pretty and make it harder to sell luxury real estate.

To make them miserable. Hence moving elsewhere. Sorry about that. Fingers aren't as fast as the brain.

Don't want her back again
Oh, Christy, pleeese

I think we all just need some relief from this Gong show, don't you?
