You Won't Read It In The Sunday Papers...No Record Of Safety Audit On Ice Bomb Bridge.


From the continuing ditch-digging project of Mr. Bob Mackin:

Bob's got the entire story, and why it matters....

The BC Liberals spent more money on getting Christy’s name on a plaque than they did ensuring the bridge was safe for use.

BTW, where have we heard the name Bev Hooper before?

Why does TIC even need an out-of-house person to answer for them?

FOI contacts for Crown Corporations

"Each Crown corporation or Crown agency is responsible for responding to FOI requests under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. Contact the Crown Corporation or agency's representative directly for information about your FOI request."

Let's get this straight. The public is required to go OUTSIDE of a Crown agency, outside of the Government privacy regulations, to a private firm that collects the public's private contact information eg. phone numbers, email addresses, addresses etc.

Are any of the concerns of the public's requests even make it to the door of those responsible within the BC Government? Why does there have to be middle-persons?

Safety Last?

Thanks Lew--

Gosh, didn't they do that on the Coquihalla recently?



It would appear that we have privatized, essentially, everything.

Paul Ramsey has an excellent post up about how that leads to big, big dollars being wasted and internal expertise wasting away to nothing when it comes to IT outsourcing.



Safety last?


Sure looks like it.

In my opinion, everything is privitized all their friends can make money and then in turn "donate" to the b.c. lieberal party. Its part of Christy's job action plan.

by putting it at a distance, they can blame everyone but their own. its just like the health authorities. its always their fault, never the health minister or the cabinet, or the premier, etc.

with all this contracting out, how many might be classified as American? with all the changes will trump and his goons want access to our information????? With privitization comes a lack of security. not going to be a good thing.......
