Barry. Penner: I understand your challenge of dealing with that shopping centre (Surrey Place Mall), because the whole project has been described as the fast ferry project on land. I'm not asking you to comment on that, but I realize you have a significant problem to deal with that was not your own making, that was foisted upon you by previous political masters.
           N. Geer: We'll make the right business decision for our customers and properly manage it. It's a wonderful building. I hate to use derogatory terms, because we're attempting to lease it. When you attempt to lease it to a new customer and you use derogatory terms, it's self-defeating. I don't want to get involved in derogatory terms as we're attempting to make a good business decision — if we could, Barry. - Crown Corporations Page 210  near bottom  Link  UPDATED August 30, 2013
Bold printing mine   for    "the fast ferry project on land"

 We'll skip the hypothesis if there will ever be a Select Standing Committee called into discuss the Why's of the Sale of BC Rail, let's just move right along and call for a Select Standing Committee to discuss BC Hydro's multiple high wire ACTs that were passed onto BC Hydro president Dave Cobb by the BC Liberals ....... on the importance of not being careful with tax payers dollars, especially when it came to the implementation of the Smart Meter program or Infrastructure monies long gone to the BC Treasury....... instead of of supporting BC Hydro long term goals of cheaper electricity and the stupidity of needing to reach a Carbon Free status on Sustainable electricity generation that would require ratepayers ponying up to FOUR times the going rate, by purchasing IPP contracts by the K-zillion, by 2016"

 What do you say to that Mr. Cobb?

BC Hydro president Dave Cobb has told his staff that he expects Victoria to soon abandon its current energy self-sufficiency policy, a move that would free Hydro from buying hundreds of millions of dollars worth of electricity that it doesn’t need from independent power producers.

ICBC, has committed quite a few frauds against the BC people lately. To defraud a retired police officer, really takes the cake. I wonder if, the BC Liberals are draining ICBC again, as Campbell did?

Campbell's theft and sale of our rivers, has resulted in, horrendous eco damage. The run of the rivers, are draining our lakes.

The river runs eco damage is, destroying salmon runs. Bears, eagles and other creatures, depend on the salmon. Our wild salmon are dying because of the dirty diseased, Norwegian fish farms.

Campbell and Harper pretty much stripped BC bare. As we have seen, neither one of them, have any morals or ethics. If there is a spare penny anywhere, the BC Liberals will thieve it.
