Crispy is right up there with Hilary as far as corruption goes.

What kind of options/parties are there in BC in general? 

Varied or rather as either-or as in the States?

We don't know.  We tend to pick one and let it's corruption achieve double extra-super maximum before we ever think of switching it up.

Is corruption that easily detectable in your Province's politics? 

Over here it is definitely there as well but then again I think it is the same everywhere. As soon as politicians get to a certain level there is no longer anything like ethics, morality or the like.

No one will vote for the Liberals but they will win the election.

I honestly have no idea who to vote for, but it won't be the Liberals.

Elections BC asked to investigate Texas pipeline money

I have to admit, Christy & Co. might be as good as the Democrats and Republicans.

<span style="font-size: 14.3px;">What follows is an incomplete list of the public giveaways offered to spur the creation of a</span> <span class="caps" style="font-size: 0.9em;">B.C.</span> <span style="font-size: 14.3px;"></span><span class="caps" style="font-size: 0.9em;">LNG</span> <span style="font-size: 14.3px;">industry. Taken all together, the largesse of these incentives prompts a disturbing question: at what point do the perks offered by government negate the public benefit of owning the resource in the first place?</span>

wtf eh?

If any party decided to abolish the toll bridges they would win the election.

If you are a card carrying member of a political party and aren't a part of the kickback train they receive, you're a monkey.

You are much worse than the above if you're a member of an incumbent without the intent of fucking everyone over like all incumbents do.

There are too many monkeys here worried about their paper worth to affect any discernible change, and the young never vote.  Combine that with the beautifully played spending the "Liberals" are doing now, it's pretty much guaranteed.

We shouldn't be allowed to vote.

BC Hydro's debt has grown 1337% under the provincial liberals. BC Hydro used to be a money-maker...hhhmmm. The reason could be that they are forced by the liberals to pay IPP's (Independent power producers) 3 times the market price for the power that IPP's produce. The liberals declared that these prices are locked in. All this while BC Hydro dumps it's own excess power out of province. This is just plain outright corruption by Crispy Clark's liberals.

If you read newspapers in small-town BC, the last few months have been filled with stories on new spending by the Liberals for local programs.  The pre-election handouts have skyrocketed.
