Throne Speech throw-down coming in BC: Will snap election follow?

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

On June 22nd the BC Legislature will be recalled for what could be Premier Clark’s last task in office — delivering the throne speech that could topple her government in a confidence vote. 

But with developments these past weeks, the takeover of power by the frankenstein combination of the New Democrats supported by the Green Party, may not be as simple or as smooth, as they once thought.

Watch as I explain why the issue of finding a speaker has been such a hot topic this week.

The BC Liberals have planned to have their speaker resign if they are defeated and that presents a tremendous problem for the NDP and Green government and likely means we will have another election by year end.

If that’s the case and Christy Clark and the BC Liberals want to win back their majority they will need to make two major changes to win back seats in Metro Vancouver.

First they need to address the money laundering happening in our real estate market from overseas. Second, they need to truly reform and change the system of campaign financing that made their party seem to be controlled by their big money donors.

If Clark does that, she may be able to win back her majority.

Andrew “climate change is a barrage of intergalactic ballistic missiles” Weaver is as “creative” with his political arguments as he was with his precious “climate models”. But what’s also interesting about GreenDreamer Weaver is that during (Liberal) Gordon Campbell’s reign (2001 to 2011), he certainly didn’t register any complaints about Site C. In fact, back in 2009, Weaver said:

“I cannot see what is stopping Site C,” Prof. Weaver said. “There are environmental consequences, yes, but there are environmental consequences for everything we do and we have to stop using the atmosphere as an unregulated dumping ground.” [According to the Globe & Mail Jan. 31, 2009]

So, if Weaver had opted to support today’s Liberals instead of the NDP, we probably wouldn’t be in this mess of a political limbo! Then again, perhaps he’s just not as good with simple math as he thinks he is ;-)

Many of the voters now were just kids in the 90’s and they are generations that have been brainwashed into socialism. It’s been non stop grooming, and many are now radicalized and selfish. Let’s hope that they’ve had time to reflect on their futures, and they know that if they don’t stop these enviromanics that their lifestyles and future will be going down the tube.

BCers how can you have forgotten the DNPers of the 90s???

A lot of what happens now will depend on what Christy Clark puts in her Throne Speech… Or that should be how it unfolds… Unfortunately it is evident that millions of B.C. residents have selective memories about the previous two NDP in power screw-ups… Typically, we know that socialists don’t learn from their mistakes. and the Greens, mostly concentrated on south Vancouver Island the Gulf Islands, never have cared about reality but only their pakalolo induced fantasies… Thank God reality still prevails outside of the Lower Mainland…

Maurice, I agree, I want another election also. What a train wreck. Horgan wants it so bad you can smell it. I hope Clark gets her act together and gains more support . She is still less of a crook than Horgan and the NDP.
Tell me when it’s over. Brace for impact is right!

This may very well backfire for the left and give Christie Clark a few more seats and provide her with the majority that she needs to maintain a stable government..
But again as I’ve said before it doesn’t matter who votes it only matters who counts the votes..
Brace for impact.!!!

A second election will prove interesting to see how green supporters consider the sell out to the NDP and vice versa. While the stay at home conservative vote from the last election is galvanized to get out and vote, the greens and Non-Democrats may decide to stay home.

Also get a kick at how the Non-Democrats figure the Liberals are being undemocratic by not supplying the speaker when they become opposition. I note the Non-Democrats are not volunteering a speaker for the Liberal throne speech. Ah…the logic of the idiots of the regressive left.

Great report Christopher. Another election sounds like the best solution for this mess! I hope Christy Clark can sway voters to elect her into a majority.

As a BC’r, I WANT another election. As things stand, no matter which party forms the government the situation is just unworkable. (Of course, if the NDP forms the government, it will be unworkable regardless. But if the people vote them in, then that’s what they deserve. I’ll just be sorry that I’m dragged along with them)

A majority government under Christy would be better for BC than the Frankenstein party!

Another election might be a good thing.
