Media Bites: Why the Hippie Radicals - er, NDP - Lost in BC

2012-04-27-mediabitesreal.jpg The Liberal Party of B.C. is not a brilliant outfit by any means. Much of its agenda is faddish and unscientific, and, if past performance is any indication, simply doesn't work. Yet it's also the party associated with business, capitalism, status, success, and wealth -- and now a four-term majority government to boot. What does make many squeamish, however, is the idea of a party run by hippies and radicals who dogmatically cling to the 20th century's most discredited economic theory simply for reasons of pride or denial. It comes off as a little pathetic.

Earlier today, B.C.'s young Finance Minister and Deputy Premier, Kevin Falcon, resigned both positions effective immediately. In recent weeks, many MLAs have announed their resignations. The fact is that Christy Clark's leadership style and lack of clarity has made her irrelevant and incompetent at best.

B.C. Politics in a Word: Fallacious

I love the word fallacious. I love how it sounds, (slightly naughty, as it rolls off my tongue ) but more so, I love that I've finally found one word that so accurately sums of the state of politics in B.C. They are completely fallacious and voters in B.C. are left hanging in the middle of war words and media strategies where the goal is power -- rather than good government.

Christy Clark's "Leadership" Belongs on A Reality Show, Not Real Life

Clark is the perfect stereotype of a career politico. She has shown that just because you can get it elected it doesn't mean you can govern. Clark's latest smoke-and-mirror act -- in which she requested B.C. receive a "fair share" of the Enbridge pipeline proceeds -- hit the national stage with a thud.
