BC Leader’s Debate

The debate began with BC Green Party Leader Jane Sterk positioning the Greens as an alternative to the other parties that have screwed up BC for the last twenty years (or more).  Then NDP Leader Carole James attacked Gordon Campbell by saying, “Bla, bla bla… seniors,” to which Campbell replied, “Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla… economy.”

Then Jane Sterk said that to solve a social problem like crime we need to look beyond jails and cops.  Then Carole James attacked Gordon Campbell by saying, “Bla bla bla, cops, cops, cops,” to which Campbell replied, “Bla bla–jails–bla bla–cops–bla bla–gangs–bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla…”

The Green Party Leader spoke about the sensibility of a carbon tax, but one that is designed better than the Liberals plan, so that our behaviors will actually change.  She also reminded the NDP that a cap-and-trade system will have costs that will also filter down to consumers just like a carbon tax, but that people in other countries will also get rich off of it. Then Carole James attacked Gordon Campbell by saying, “Bla, bla bla unions be afraid of the Liberals,” to which Campbell replied, “Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla… small business be afraid of the NDP.”

Carole James finished off by attacking Gordon Campbell by saying, “Bla, bla bla,” to which Campbell replied, “I know you are but what am I? Bla bla bla… economy.”  Then I yelled at the TV, “You fucking lying sleezballs have had your chance to deliver on all the promises you have broken!  Shut up already!”

If STV fails, this is also going to be the transcript of the 2014 debate, except that Gordon Campbell will be replaced by Surrey Mayor Diane Watts, Carole James will be replaced by Dawn Black and the Greens will have a Leader that you have actually heard of, unless the whole thing is cancelled because of poor ratings.

    That’s very funny.

    Unfortunately, the last paragraph is all too true. I hope you’re writing letters for BC-STV.

  2. I love what you wrote here. I think my frustration is that most people won’t see through all the lying crap by the two main power-hungry parties. I can’t wait for the damned election to be over so I can see which of the two fools will lead our province and then adjust accordingly. “Leaders” is a word used so loosely these days. If those are the leaders we have to choose -what does that say about us? Jane Sterk is the only one with any true leadership qualities that I can see. I’m crossing my fingers that we can get some Green MLA’s this time around. But next time – we have to be more ready!

  3. Do I have to know anything about British Columbian politics to think t hat this was hilarious?
