This Sunday In Clarkland...The Factinator.


Looks like our fine Premier, who is scared to get her clock cleaned, again, by David Eby in Vancouver Point Grey next May, has decided to play fast and loose with the latest developments in Real Estate Bubble Town.

Emily Lazatin of CKNW has the story about how Ms. Clark is Winnie-The-Pooh-Poohing the fact that Mr. Eby recently demonstrated that there are 'students' with big Canadian bank-backed mortgages who own multi-million dollar homes in Point Grey:

...“You know I also question the facts (Clark said), you (sic) got to question the source a little bit there. So, I don’t know if the fact (sic) are correct.”...

Oh ya?

And when, exactly, did Ms. Clark stop stiffing her West Kelowna sommelier?

If you get my drift.


As Bob Mackin points out on the Twittmachine, Mr. Eby's documentation-backed 'facts' came straight outta Ms. Clark's Compton (a.k.a.  the Land Title and Survey Authority)....Double sheesh.

I heard a clip on the radio yesterday wherein Christy Clark chastised John Horgan for his election promise to raise the provincial share of transit funding in the lower mainland from 33% to 40%. “He must be the world’s worst negotiator,” she cackled, as if the negotiations were with a foreign government.

So the moronic airhead that caused at least a two-year delay in transit improvements by foisting an unworkable transit referendum on the lower mainland, and then unilaterally decided to build a $3.5 billion dollar bridge to replace the Massey Tunnel with no consultation has the jam to criticize John Horgan for pledging $50 million/yr to get things going and not playing hardball with local government?

Sheesh indeed.

Don't lose control of the narrative .manufacture consent if you can?

phrase used by a Roman writer to deplore the declining heroism of Romans after the Roman Republic ceased to exist and the Roman Empire began: “Two things only the people anxiously desire — bread and circuses.” The government kept the Roman populace happy by distributing free food and staging huge spectacles.

Awards ceremonies etc?

Election coming

When is a fact not a fact?
When Chrispy utters it.

“You know I also question the facts, you got to question the source a little bit there. So, I don’t know if the fact are correct.”

The above is 'A' Trump talking about Obama's birth certificate, or 'B' Christy Clark questioning David Eby's immaculate research.

So, because I ain't on Twitter, someone else can make this point: Canadian media commentators are sneering ar Donald Trumps's fact free campaign, yet the same commentators will let Say Anything Christy say anything.

We're doomed.

Looks like CC is Trumping up some new numbers here.

BC Lib Bragging about Welfare-to-Work Far from Reality
Success vastly exaggerated, based on government’s own press releases.
- by Andrew MacLeod,

Here’s what Premier Christy Clark said about the program in her Sept. 10 speech to the Beans’n’Jeans fundraiser, where she was acclaimed as the candidate for Westside-Kelowna: “So far 3,350 single parents, 91 per cent women, are finding their way through our doors, off welfare and into a job.”
The government’s Sept. 1 press release about the program makes it clear the results have been much more modest: “Since September 2015, the Single Parent Employment Initiative has served nearly 3,400 single parents. About 400 people are currently in training programs, nearly 500 participants have already found employment and others are working with a case manager to best determine their future career path.”

.“You know I also question the facts (Clark said), you got to question the source a little bit there. So, I don’t know if the fact (sic) are correct.”...

By definition, a fact is a fact. In Clark,s mind , however, a fact is false because Mr. Ebby said it. . And if Ms. Clark, who after all is our supposedly esteemed Premier, says that a fact is false then what she says must be true And many uninformed and apathetic voters will believe her. And that is what she counts on and how she operates. She is known to have said "politicians will say anything before an election to get elected" And Clark is the ultimate politician who does not allow facts to get in her way.

First - she counts on it because she knows, based on past performance, that (as many above have noted) the local proMedia will not call her on it.

Second - Interestingly, she included herself in that group who will say anything by using the royal 'we' when she said it.

Is that a fact!

Eby's research is fine, its Christy's mind which is the problem.

She thinks MSP changes are "complicated", she is having problems with facts which come from the government itself. Perhaps Christy's brain is the problem. time for a transplant. No not more botox, a transplant for Christy's brain.

Eby is simply doing the work the MSM ought to have done a long time ago, but being part of the B.C. LieberaLS that wasn't going to happen. We have yet to find a MSM type who actually asks real questions and keeps asking them, and not just accepting whatever Christy has to say.

In London, England they knew money was being laundered via the real estate sales, so they changed the laws. In B.C. they just keep attacking the person telling the truth. High real estate prices are working for Christy, her financial supporters, and some of those banks. In the meantime, we the citizen tax payers are paying the price. On the other hand, we get what we deserve, when we continue to vote the B.C. Lieberals into office.

A government which claws back increases to the disabled is either morally or monetarily bankrupt. For those who continue to keep that type of government in office, it says a whole lot of about you also.

It is a fact that this government is morally bankrupt, check out the bloated "donations" to get into the "pay to play club", as well as the miserly attitude to the less fortunate in this province.

It is a fact that Christy can't get or keep her facts straight, just read the various blogs and msm reports, Misquoted?
I have my doubts...simply put she just doesn't know.

It is a fact that this government is one of questionable integrity and indeed may qualify as one of the most corrupt in Canadian history, after a corruption enquiry and a forensic audit gets to the bottom of the mess these clowns have made of this once great province.

It is an undisputed fact, that these clowns need to be removed asap. This is not governance, but organized crime in the guise of a so called serving government.
