lack of respect or seriousness; frivolousness.
............ As municipal affairs minister in 1993, Robin Blencoe repealed the business vote, claiming that it removes the possibility of people simply leasing storage lockers to vote. Blencoe’s flippancy was just one indication of how decision-makers overlook the concerns of small businesses. ......
Are the BC Liberals, and Brian Bonney et al guilty of an overindulgence in flippancy
‘EXCLUSIVE’ BREAKING NEWS: Christy Clark’s Surrogates Dialing-for-Dollars…for Kim Haakstad and Brian Bonney - May 2013
Alex G. TsakumisIn case the new job figures aren’t a big enough shock for you (since Christy Clark became premier, 45,000 jobs vaporized from the private sector in BC) try this bombshell on for size…
After Kim Haakstad and Brian Bonney were axed from their respective positions for playing central roles in the ‘Ethnogate’ scandal, Christy Clark made a big deal of saying how neither Haakstad nor Bonney received any party of government funds on their way out the door.
Well, why would they need to???
Enter Bruce Clark, brother of Christy Clark, key figure in the BC Rail scandal, former tight pal and political associate of Dave Basi, Bob Virk and the illustrious Erik Bornmann, and STILL the partner-in-grime with Mark Marrisen and Mike McDonald in directing the listing BC Liberal ship.
Apparently, as told to me by one of the people Bruce Clark was fool enough to ask, he was calling around and “looking for $100,000 for Kim…”
“I was floored, actually, Alex, I couldn’t believe my ears.”
And the source continued: “He (Bruce Clark) said Christy didn’t want it looking like she (Kim Haakstad) was getting any money from the government or the party directly, so Bruce told her he’d go out and hunt around for about a hundred grand.”
flippancy?? Haakstad too

Christy Clark Said What About Breaking the Law??? LOL!!! 93
In what must rank as one of the most astoundingly ironic statements she’s ever made, our absentee Premier decided to weigh in on the pipeline debate today, by, brace yourselves, admonishing adult protestors to stop encouraging their children to break the law. I just about died from laughter. FACT: During the May 2013 election, she […]

‘EXCLUSIVE’ BREAKING NEWS: An Investigation Looking at Every Aspect of the Christy Clark/Ethnogate Scandal–Including Possible Bribes 143
In February and March of this last year, there was an unusual spike in interest here, from the IP addresses identified as those of the provincial government–not the opposition. Specifically, the Executive Branch. Coincidentally, ahem, there were five specific commenters who were so abusive that I couldn’t publish all their comments. They were responding to […]

Brian Bonney and his co-defendant, hopefully, will not have their days dragged through the court and media ending five years from now as it did to Robin Blencoe.
Snip185 However, rejecting the stay as a proper remedy in the present case does not mean that Blencoe should be deprived of any redress. On the contrary, an order for an expedited hearing should have been considered as the remedy of choice. There will be some irony in granting such a remedy more than five years after the proceedings began. Such an outcome offers the respondent little solace. Nevertheless, in spite of its rather symbolic value, at the present stage of the proceedings, it appears as a critically important remedy that should have been used at an earlier stage to prod the Commission along and to control the inefficiency of its process.186 In spite of the partial success of this appeal, as I agree that the stay should be lifted, Blencoe is entitled to some compensation in the form of costs in our Court and in the courts below. Section 47 of the Supreme Court Act,R.S.C., 1985, c. S-26 , grants our Court broad discretion when awarding costs. In the present case, it would be both fair and appropriate to use this power as the respondent has established that the process initiated against him was deeply flawed and that its defects justified his search for a remedy, at least in administrative law. He had to fight for his rights, and it would be unfair for him to bear the costs personally. Although ultimately unsuccessful in his application for a stay, Blencoe brought to the attention of the courts the grave deficiency of the administrative processes of the Commission. He should at least not be penalized for this mixture of success and failure (e.g., Schachter v. Canada,  2 S.C.R. 679, at p. 726).
