Here's To The State Of The Golden Era....


Foisted by a leader whose heart and soul was in the bag....

VICTORIA (Canadian Press, Oct 4/11) - Former premier Gordon Campbell was a no-show at his Order-of-B.C. induction ceremony Tuesday, prompting the lieutenant governor to say his old friend deserves the award even though the nomination sparked controversy.

Premier Christy Clark, who said she was humbled to be in the presence of more than a dozen high-achieving British Columbians, did not mention the former premier during the ceremony.

Campbell was among 14 people who received the Order of B.C., which recognizes the excellence and achievements of individual British Columbians.

"I'm particularly sorry my friend Gordon Campbell could not be here," said Lt.-Gov. Steven Point as he addressed the 13 inductees at Government House. "It's my belief he is entirely deserving of this recognition."

Is the Lt.-Gov not supposed to be impartial...not beholden to, or praising of either side?

It seems to me it's time to remove Point...he's lost his, bearings. He can think what he likes, but he really should keep it to himself, especially when addressing those who truly did deserve the OBC...and some who didn't.

One has to wonder how many winks passed between him and Dobell/Emerson? Bah...enough to give a dogs a$$ heartburn I tell ya.

Excellent point Leah.

And, truth be told, it was not one I was trying to make here.

All I was trying to point out was that everything is, and in my opinion, always has been, pre-arranged in the good Mr. Campbell's favour, by his friends and patrons who have done so very, very well by him.

Truth be told, I personally think that Kevin Potvin was bang on on this one way back in 2005.

You would have to be as brain dead as Martyn Brown, to name Campbell for the OBC.

Of course Campbell would be a no show, for his undeserved OBC. He knew he didn't deserve the award. He twice lied, to be re-elected for two different elections. Campbell also lied about the provincial deficit.

Campbell also knows he is despised and loathed by the BC citizens. Like all dictators he is really a coward, and does everything behind our backs. Campbell is known as, the master of dirty tactics. He is pure evil.

Campbell should really be awarded a prison cell. The OBC should be scrapped. All the honor of the OBC has been, fouled and dirtied.
