There's been several instances over the years where the Press have been used by the dark dungeon boys and girls at the governments Public Affairs Bureau (PAB), which was renamed by Christy to Government Communications and Public Engagement (GCPE). Recently, the Government Research Caucus... aka GCPE, used our resources, our monies, our equipment, our TIME, to create Attack ads against Adrian Dix and John Cummins AND further, Premier Christy Clark hired an outsider, the same good fellow who directed her to the top spot to replace outgoing Premier Gordon Campbell. He then took on the job to direct those poor PABs, via a $10,000 a month retainer for "services rendered" without having gone through strict government protocols of seeking the lowest bid possible.
"Value for Money." was tossed out the window. Time was of importance.
Time is running out; Timing is so important right now.
For instance, in this morning's Vancouver Sun newspaper there is a Letter written by a Monika Bonney from Burnaby. Monika is a common name, Bonney is not a common name. The "Bonney" name is nowhere near to the popularity of a "Clark" or a "Campbell". Turns out that there is only one residence in all of Burnaby that houses "Bonney", ......... times TWO.
One person one Vote.
Two persons Two Votes.
Would one family with Two persons, in One residence use each other's Vote to cancel out each Other?
The Vancouver Sun, like most news media outlets, having been burned by BC Social Credit Party's PAB who used Taxpayers monies, resources, (did they have computers back then) to create the Dirty Tricks Scandal to smear the BC NDP.... all in the name of gaining a foothold in the Provincial Election.
Oberfeld (Blog) was a key reporter in the station's coverage of British Columbia's "Dirty Tricks Scandal", which eventually saw eight B.C. government employees lose their jobs amidst allegations of election-boundary interference, phoney letters-to-the-editor and secret election-fund bank accounts.
There wasn't one Dirty Trick, others have happened since. One example was the married daughter of a Prominent BC Liberal MLA who wrote a GLOWING letter to a Vancouver Island newspaper without informing the Editor of her Direct relationship to the Father..... MLA.... Candidate (he lost).
The News Media now require that names and addresses and phone numbers, to confirm the facts.
Does the person reside in a specific Riding?
Does the person Exist?
Was the person the Author of the Letter to the Editor?
May the news media have the Author's permission to Publish the Letter to the Editor?
That name, Bonney, sounds vaguely familiar....... Oh, yeah, The three BC Liberal operatives who used the patient deaths from C Dif at Burnaby General Hospital generated by ten years of slip shod work brought upon by the BC Liberals having torn up legally binding Collective Agreements with government employees health care workers who had participated, in good faith, with their Employers to wash the dishes, clean the toilets.. and other mundane jobs .... were FIRED, all in the sake of "trimming the fat" by hiring cheaper, less experienced, first timers who didn't, don't have a clue about the importance of CLEANING!
The three BC Liberals, under the watchful eye of MLA Harry Bloy, used the C Dif platform to create a viable means by which two Burnaby Ridings would slide sideways to favour the BC Liberals....
Prominent Health Minister Mike de Jong (now Finance Minister since MLA Kevin Falcon bailed out) appeared at a Press gathering on Burnaby Generals property to make a promise.... that money would be found (PPP3)(SNC Lavin????) to bankroll and then purge serious health issues from the system.
In essence the Letter to the Editor congratulates the BC Liberals for planning, over the next three years, the cutting, elimination, of 1,400 government jobs. The writer to the Vancouver Sun agrees with the BC Liberals cost cutting measures of reducing the Province's deficit by cutting 330 jobs each year. The jobs are not the high flying half million dollar Plus jobs, ...... no, no, the jobs are for government workers, with families, earning less than $80,000 a year. The jobs effected will NOT be the Spin Doctors at GCPE or PAB, their jobs are guaranteed because they are the Brains-in-the-feet plodders enforcing Christy Clark's edict that BC Jobs and Canada Starts Here..... propaganda ....which must continue, full speed ahead, right up to election day in May. Sounds like Hansen's Radar problems are about to rise from the ashes again.
Search Criteria at Cananda411 were two factors... "Bonney" and "Burnaby"

Vancouver Sun, Tuesday, Feb. 26: Tax hikes, balanced budget, gain approval
Full marks to Premier Christy Clark and Finance Minister Mike de Jong for continuing to show restraint with respect to government hiring and government wages.
The government bureaucracy in this province will be reduced by over 1,400 positions in the coming three years.
Good riddance to big government and hello balanced budgets; my kids thank you.
