Since 2005, Mount Polley Mining Corp and Imperial Metals Corp have donated $195,010 to British Columbia’s ruling B.C. Liberal party.British Columbians Saddled With $40 Million Clean-Up Bill as Imperial Metals Escapes Criminal Charges
This is some next level fuckery. Heads need to roll on this, from the top down in Government.
You are aware that Imperial Metals donates to all 3 parties, that their contribution levels are weighted toward the party in power and that this is the same bullshit tactic employed by most corporations, right?Since 2005, Mount Polley Mining Corp and Imperial Metals Corp have donated $195,010 to British Columbia’s ruling B.C. Liberal party.
there you have it
Second verse, same as the first. None of this is new. None of this is partisan. All parties concerned are guilty. This is not about corruption under a flag or logo. This is about the gross, general corruption that permeates the system, as a whole. See the ass-backward judicial rulings that define corporations as individuals under the Charter ('82), the gross nepotism and regulatory tinkering... JT is just the current dunk tank resident. Make no bones about it - your anger and frustration are warranted. It's just that you're pointing a half-cocked gun at the wrong target.that is just the corp. i bet if you dig deeper you will see lots of employees who donated then were reimbursed by their employer. something companies were doing to get around the so called rules they have in bc.
I share your sentiment amigo. There's no part of what you're stating here that I don't agree with. ...but your loathing has you so riled up that you're hurling handfuls of pebbles at a mountain. More important than the "what" is the "why". Focus.um, this was about the bc liberals. they have been dogged for a long time about their shady fund raising practices, not to mention the liberal party paying christy on top of her premier pay. they have done pretty much nothing to change it. this is just an example of what filling a parties coffers will buy you in bc at the moment. the guy who lent duffy the 90 grand was told to fall on his sword and was turfed, i dont ever see anyone from a liberal party ever getting into trouble. they ont liberals are under 2 different investigations that are going to trial and no one has even been reprimanded ffs. the one broad whos bf wiped the computers was working for the freaking bc liberals when it came out they were going to pursue charges ffs.
promising legal weed and refusing to rehash bankrupt drug war talking points > promising continued prohibition and higher penalties and using the drug war language of demonizationwell, champ. it seems to be a theme with canadian liberal parties. maybe you havent noticed. are you new to the country? i remember lots of bold promises and claims then they get the power and shazam! up in smoke...and sadly, not legalized pot smoke(i think they promised legalized weed 3 times now)
