This blog was created to show how the government of BC has lied, or reneged on political promises. The record of the Liberal Government in BC has been appalling since they were first elected.And in the legislature all they can say is "we can't comment it's before the courts".
Ida Chong Recall First Week Results
After searching all day in the MSM and finally getting the results from the Oak Bay Gordon Head campaign I decided to write this piece on the situation. Gary E
The good folks volunteering to recall Ida Chong have collected 2,041 verified signatures. That's 13 % of the total votes needed by February 4th.
That number is the actual number of verified signatures. Some have to be revisited for various reasons.Then and then will they be included in the actual count. The people in Oak Bay Gordon Head have a well thought out campaign and they are provising valuable lessons for the rest of us.
Not bad for being out in not so good weather and having goons in dark suits harrasing the campaign. Which I allege is illegal under sec. 157 of the act.
As well, the ads being put forth to intimidate people from signing are not legal.It is against the law to intimidate people in any way to influence their vote. You can bet if this were a canvasser they would be all over them like white on rice.
Chongs' campaign would like to have you believe the Liberal party spin that the recall is about rehashing the last election. I don't understand what part of a MLA not backing their constituents they don't understand.And it seems she is not the only MLA spouting this spin.
Phil Hochstein,of the ICBA (Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of B.C.), said his organization is running ads against the recall because it's a waste of money. Mr. Hochstein how much of your members money are you wasting on these ads?Members who were not advised by you as to what you are doing with their money. And that can't be denied because I have the information FIRST HAND from at least one member. And that's all we need although I suspect their are many more
Elections BC is aware of all of this and I expect a quick timely answer and nothing less. No more pusssy-footing around and delaying.
