Liberal rally in support of Bill Belsey, held downtown at noon today:
What r u nuts? We are trying to save this country. Not bring in more criminals.
N D P!!!
“I brought the college… I built the cruise ship dock… I got us the port deal.”
Yeah but, what about all the people they keep pushing down and down, waaaaay down the ladder? HuH?
The rich will keep getting richer.
I don’t want to jump on any political party’s bandwagon, BUT if we want our little town to stay afloat economically speaking, we need to stay the course for 4 more years with the Liberal Party. With the port deal and the ever-increasing amount of tourism brought on by the cruise ships, Prince Rupert has suddenly turned the corner from being that ‘sorry town up north’ to ‘the next boom town’ in BC.
I just have this feeling that if we go NDP or any other party, we will be overlooked when funds and support are prioritized. Of course I don’t think that the port will suddenly disappear if we vote NDP, but let’s not take that chance. I’m voting Liberal.
Yes, I mean by your reasoning, having an NDP MP meant that the federal government didn’t contribute to the port, right?
Hah, Belsey’s a clown.
Under Belsey’s plan, the idea was to downsize Rupert.
Belsey represented Victoria to Prince Rupert, not Prince Rupert to Victoria.
Rupert has ALWAYS done better under the NDP than it ever has under the Liberals. This is the worst Rupert’s ever been.
Anybody who thinks that Rupert’s economy is better now than it was 5 years ago under the NDP is living in a different Prince Rupert.
NDP= use money we dont have then let our kids sort out the mess… liberials did the right thing they had too they made the cuts were needed to bring the deficit down, you cant run a province on borrowed money that is clasic NDP.
to tell the truth a polition is a glorified lier…lol they talk with fork tongue, say one thing do something else then justify it to there needs.
( sorry for spelling).
What borrowed money?
NDP had 3 budget surpluses in their last term in office. How many surpluses have the Liberals had?
Think for yourself, and stop believing the propaganda.
The economy of BC (especially Rupert’s) has always done better under the NDP government.
Only the rich have gained, in any real terms, under the Liberals. The rest of us are much worse off.
ya right those liberals are all down with gay marriage and creepy fag shit like that!!!
cruise ship dock : sailors … obviously gay agenda.
college : look at the paintjob of this thing, either there is a glut of aquamarine paint on the market or … GAY AGENDA
port : screamingly, flamingly, homosexual!
we need to vote conservative so we get some real VALUE ORIENTED LEADERS IN PLACE!!! and i dont mean ORIENTAL VALUING LEADERS (if you catch my drift, go jc!)
Thanks Bill Belsey, for increasing class sizes. If people want a real education they can pay for it.
Thanks Bill Belsey, for cutting health care. If people are sick, they can pay for it, too bad.
Thanks Bill Belsey, for cutting my taxes, but then charging me more in user fees, so that I’m further behind.
Thanks Bill Belsey, for lowering the population of Prince Rupert.
Thanks Bill Belsey, for keeping Skeena going, as you promised.
Thanks Bill Belsey, for lying to me personally. It takes a great politician to take the time out of your busy schedule to lie to me individually, instead of lying to me as part of a larger group.
Also, don’t make the mistake of thinking the Federal Liberals (Ujal Dosanje) are the same as the provincial Liberals (Gordon Campbell).
The provincial liberals are really the reform party by another name.

but if what you’re saying is wrong, and its based on what you have heard (which is wrong), maybe your judgement will be wrong as well, and you’re perhaps about to use your free will to vote against your interests.
“The BC Liberal government has allotted $12.6 billion annually for health care, which represents a $3-billion increase - or 36 % - over the last three years.Â This is a greater increase than during the entire NDP term during the 1990s.”
I think Molten Universe has some serious issues. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…
Note: I posted the pics not because I support the candidate (I don’t), but just because it was a local event that happened and I thought would make a good starting point for a discussion on politics, which it has.
plus there was free food.
no pizza pockets or tang though…
Hey, I caught that Seinfeld episode last week! Not that there’s anything wrong with that!
Now hoshq, I understand that you don’t support the guy but you still posted this:
[quote]Neighbourhood schools closed
More than 14,000 students have been displaced from their neighbourhood schools since the B.C. Liberals came to office in 2001 and froze the funding for public education. One-hundred and thirteen neighbourhood schools have been closed â€” 44 in June 2002, 45 in 2003 and 24 in 2004-05, an unprecedented number in British Columbia.
Between 2001 and 2004, 2,500 teaching positions have been lost, resulting in class size increases and loss of specialist teacher support for students.
So between the people in power who say that things have never been better and people who work in the hospitals and the schools and who see the results of the government action, I choose the latter!
