Ralston's Financial Plan: 1 - Answer emails from Nigeria; 2 - Give them money; 3 - Profit!

With British Columbia doing so well under the BC Liberal Government as can be seen with 100% of the public service contracts signed before the deadline (including one with the BCTF); our thriving economy and with the unemployment rate at a 31 year low (4.6%) it's hard to believe that financially, things could be better. But according to newly crowned NDP Finance Opposition Critic Bruce "The Evil Laugher" Ralston, he can make it better.
How you may ask? Our sources tell us he is using his overseas contacts to infuse over $100 million US into the coffers in Victoria. Which overseas contacts? Specifically, Nigeria.
"Yes indeed Brucey is on the ball with this one," Ralston spokesperson Mo T. Burn declared. "I have seen his plan and it is great! Simple and great...thus making it simply great!"
It seems that Ralston has received dozens of emails, commonly known as the "Nigerian Letter Scam", and believes this is the road to making those millions.
"Scam, what scam?", the Burnster asked excitedly. "Since Ralston was the former Chair and Board of Director with Vancity Credit Union he knows what he is doing. In fact, his being the BC NDP President during the 1990's means he is more than qualified to identify a scam, and this my friend, ain't no scam."
Ummm...interesting and somewhat impressive pedigree...and Ralston's background is kinda neat-o too...until you look a wee, bit closer.
"No...no need to look closer," Burn exclaimed. "Just know that his plan is great!"
"Well come on," an exasperated Burn spat. "What's wrong with any of that? Ralston doled out the $1 million just before the election, sucked up to his BCGEU friends, gave the cash to the NDP backed Centre for Policy Alternative because he had to. You also left out that he gave over NDP membership lists to the Credit Union to use for, well, whatever they wanted. You missed that one reporter bird."
Yes, Burn is right. Ralston did all that because...
"He was the BC NDP President at the time and during those good ol' days of the 1990's. Booya!", Burn cried.
It's true. But strange that Ralston's website does not list his Dipper Presidency in his bio. Something to hide? Either way, as Finance Critic, it does not make sense for Ralston to solicit funds via emails.
"It makes complete sense!", Burny countered. "Look, when my man Bruce donated funds to the BC Liberal Party while running as an NDP MLA - he was hedging his bet...very smart! Brucey also does not tolerate crap...he does not tolerate non NDP mental health advocates speaking at his events. Just read this copy I have here:
Perhaps the highlight of the night, in terms of the media, would be the drama that unfolded at the mike. Ralston had told the audience that the next in line to ask a question could not, because he was not an NDP member. The man, one Roderick Lewis, a mental health advocate, was asked to leave the mike but adamantly refused. At which point a loud and disruptive discussion erupted between Lewis and Ralston, by then all the four major TV outlets had their cameras descending on Lewis, and Ralston to avoid criticism, allowed Lewis to speak his mind. While Lewis was going on and on about his mental illness binge, NDP rank and file were berating and using expletives to try and drown out Lewis. It was a moment of high drama indeed, as I noticed the police at the doors to the auditorium.
Take THAT non Dipper man! And finally, when it was time for the B-Man to become MLA, he handpicked his friend Jeff Fox, the BCGEU Director of Organizing and Field Services to take over as President of the BC NDP so you know that Brucey knows how to take care of his union friends. In short, BR is a leader!"
Ok...but that still does not take away from the fact that the Nigerian letter scam is just that...a SCAM and does not show Mr. Ralston has any clue of what is involved with being financially responsible for the Province.
"No way! This is NOT a scam! As I said before, as the past President of the BC NDP during the 1990's, with everything he saw going on, Bruce would certainly know a scam!"
You would think so...thankfully, most BCers do.

Last time I looked Van City has a board of directors, all elected by the members. Most staff are not unionized .
The BC Fed is made up of many unions, all directors are elected. The NDP directors are all elected, the staff are unionized. So give it a rest.

You have to have an NDP membership in order to be a director with Vancity.

For 6:56pm, then why is the BC unemployment rate at a 31 year low, all contracts are signed, the economy is flying high, etc. etc. etc.??? The BC Liberals are correctly managing the finances while the NDP cannot even get their leader to make sense.

Otherwise it's just more proof as

The Liberals are doing just great says some of the writers on this blog. Seems BC is second from the last in timely medical care. (Stats Can report yesterday) Gordons' good buddy Harper has put the boots to the forestry industry especially on the island. Now Gordons' spin doctors are telling us its on the head of the companies if they bail on the deal.

Yes sir, by golly the BC Liberals are doing great things as they sell off everything in sight.

Anonymous 8:24 wants proof that you have to be a member of the NDP to be a VanCity director. Not quite. You have to be an NDP member to be a member of the Action Slate, the group which has dominated the Board for most of the last 15 years or so. It was the creation of Bob Williams and would-be candidates still have to kiss his, um, ring if they want the apparatchiks to work on their campaigns. The Action Slaters and their NDP masters are well aware that only 3% of the members bother to vote and they have been very successful at making sure that 3% is drawn from their "progressive" ranks.

Hey , if only a percentage vote for the directors the rest can't bitch. And Van City, to which I belong has a excellent track record with community groups, grants, social housing and the list goes on. Kissing Bob Williams ring is simply so much BS. IT's the largest non bank in the country.

If you don't vote, then don't complain about the outcome.

Guess your time would be better spent kissing BC Liberal Party asses and telling Gordon Campbell about the dangers of drinking and driving. He didn't get it the first time.

Or perhaps you could consult on how to give good health care for foster kids and provide your findings to Stan Hagen.

848 has obviosly never heard the expression "If you don't vote don't bitch" works for anything a person can vote for or against. Any Credit Union members knows that slates exist. VanCity as many other places , have them. To think you can't be a director without being of one political party is just stupid. If the majority of members thought the present directors were doing a poor job, they would be out in droves to get rid of them. Doesn't seem to be happening. As for a earlier comment about 3 percent vote, maybe yes, maybe no. I guess it would be easy enough to inquire.
As for fast ferries, I don't see the connection to this line of stuff. I've never been in a bingo hall either.

If you mean NDP say so. You might think it's cute but it's getting a bit boring actually. and yes lots of us have geat memories . Don't sell us short when it's you who have to poor communications skills. We could repeat Ad Infenitum about Gordo being pissed in Maui or Stan Hagen being rather inept but chose not to do so repeatedly. Maybe you could get some communication training from the MLA who used to write letters to the editor telling folks what a great job he was doing. Oh gosh no. He was a BC Liberal

OK, instead of "dippers", how about we use "commie pinkos" or "Marxist Dirtbags" or "socialist scum" or "wannabe Leninst-Marxist iron curtain red army freaks"?

Personally I like to try and be creative in my contempt of the have-not NDP sympathizers. For example: "I'd rather be dead than red like those commie pinkos on the Vancity board".

Maybe a lot of folks ot tired of the stupid names they were being called, rather than have a sensible dialog. It's so much easier to keep saying how in your view the NDP are just awful while Gordo can , inyour minds do no wrong. get a sensible subject line and some folks might get around to replying. They arn't afraid of the comments, it's just that so many of the right wingers are getting boring.

That's very true. The line or mantra "Gordon Campbell is doing such a wonderful job for British Columbia, and should keep going" wears thin after awhile, especially when the same old sound file is fed into talk shows by the BC Liberal headquarters boys who have nothing more important to do.

With higher quality nutjobs running the BC Liberal Party than the bad quality nutjobs that are currently runnng the BC Liberal Party, now there would be little chance of the NDP nutjobs running the province.

But get your mind out of your pants!
