Chevron

Carole James has been campaigning in Burnaby two out of the first three days.

Today she is at the Chevron on Canada Way at Willingdon. Plenty of reasons to do a campaign stop there - carbon tax, remand centre or the refinery.

Has nothing to do with the remand centre.

The Chevron Refinery is a backdrop for the carbon tax issue.

Yeah right. Prevent a leader from coming to Burnaby because a local candidate is shown on the news.

Would you agree that Gordon Campbell should stay away from Burnaby in order to prevent Harry Bloy's scraggly look from getting into the news?

well harry bloy is already elected he's not a new candidate like mondee is. anyways, she is one ugly, dumb lady. she looks like a woodstock pot smoker. and a telus help desk worker??? haha. i think that makes her the least qualified candidate for mla in the entire province. hopefully when the ndp loses the election and replaces carole james the new leader of the ndp will someone good who can finally attract some decent candidates.

Harry is a new candidate to a new riding just as Mondee is.

Harry is also one that would crack a mirror too.

and a telus help desk worker??? haha.

Don't trash it. It's alot of work dealing with irate customers and those who aren't sure of what the answer is. Try it sometime. We'll be you wouldn't last a month. A friend did the same thing for BC Hydro and left after two weeks.

Previous candidates have made Minister who were railway workers and one was a previous talk show host.

Would you say the same thing about Gordon Campbell? Sooner or later he is going to either be defeated or decide to step down. He's been leader of the BC Liberals since 1995, which is quite a long time.

Also worth point out, if you're going to be critical, at least get your writing correct.

Names are capitalised. "I" is always capitalised. "MLA" is also capitalized.

do u try to be stupid intentionally or do you have a medical mental disability? harry bloy was my mla before the election and now he's running to be my mla again in this election. that would make him the exact opposite of a new candidate.

hahaha. i guess that shows the level of difficulty of jobs you've had in your life. i wont try it because i prefer jobs that require education, skills, achieving goals and being successful.

unlike carole james campbell doesnt need to resign for the to attract good candidates. he's attracted a chief of police, a judge from the highest court in the province, a chair of the cbc, former presidents of the bcma, chair of the cancer society, successful business people... the list goes on. Carole James doesnt have one high calibre candidate. not even 1.

you got me man. you sure scored points on that one. punctuation is the real #1 issue in this election. ...hey i'm curious, so how does it feel being a nerdy virgin loser writing on a computer in your parents' basement?

He's running in Burnaby-Lougheed which is a new riding. He represented Burquitlam previously.

From your rant I gather you live in Burnaby. But Harry doesn't. He does not live in the riding.

Obvously with your spelling you have a ways to go.

Actualy she does. Quite a few. But the voters aren't interested too much in the professional lives of candidates. It's what they can deliver and how they can represent the constituents which counts.

you got me man. you sure scored points on that one. punctuation is the real #1 issue in this election. ...hey i'm curious, so how does it feel being a nerdy virgin loser writing on a computer in your parents' basement?

You ask me. I'm a Operations Manager for a business and I am also working a BC Liberal campaign at the senior management level.

The issue in election isn't punctuation. It is however something you should take a serious look at before writing critical commentary on other people.

mr/ms operations-manager-punctuation-specialist, ignoring your game of blogging one-upmanship through punctuation and resume comparison, I completely disagree when you say:

"But the voters aren't interested too muh in the professional lives of candidates."

youve got to concede that the candidates send out flyers with their photos and bios and voters read them and make judgments accordingly. when a candidate has achieved professional success, it is an indication of her/his competence and work ethic. and those are both important factors in choosing an mla.

if voters dont care about the professional backgrounds of candidates, why do those candidates with outstanding professional success get referred to as "star candidates"?

Well you should really improve your diction. Shows how bad the schools are when it comes to teaching English properly.

"But the voters aren't interested too muh in the professional lives of candidates."

Read and focus on what the candidate has done for the community, not for business. There's been successful politicians who do not own a business, in fact one was a bursar at a university and was never a business person. Other have had farms and not businesses.

when a candidate has achieved professional success, it is an indication of her/his competence and work ethic.

Not nessesarily. Some have achieved success, but one or two errors and they have lost the business. I've seen that once or twice. Harry lost a business a few years ago for example.


and those are both important factors in choosing an mla.

Nope. Sorry. Also needs to be community minded. A person who has done nothing except earn money and not contributed in anyway to the community before getting into politics isn't going very far. I've seen that happen once too many times.

The voters want successful people, not that's not attributed solely to
business success.

if voters dont care about the professional backgrounds of candidates, why do those candidates with outstanding professional success get referred to as "star candidates"?

Because the Party sees far more than just the work. They see people who have contributed to the community, either as a politician somewhere else or has shown leadership in the community.

In fact some of these so-called 'star candidates' have bombed badly in elections. Igali the Olympic wrestler is a good example. Achived gold medals in wrestling, but the NDP took him to the mat in the 2005 election.

In fact some NDPers have achieved success in business. Gregor Robertson is one of those.

Mike Farnworth (NDP) has never run a business but has achieved success in politics.

Again it comes down to the person and what they have accomplished in the community.

Wally Oppal has not been particularly successful as an AG.

i never said it had to be success in business, i said professional success. people have professions other than business. the bc libs have a chief of police, appeal court judge, president of the bcma, president of the cancer foundation... none of these people are business owners but have had tremendous success in their professional lives. these people have proven themselves to be winners whether or not they get a seat in this election.

the ndp do not have this caliber of people. gregor robertson was a decent catch, but he left b/c he saw the party was going no where. he didnt even care enough tell carole james when he left to campaign for mayor.

Yes and no. You're forgetting that many of them built on that by volunteering their time in the community.

and it's a former Chief of Police, he left the WVPD on his own.

and one does not need to be those in order to run for office. You're forgetting one thing, Sunshine.

There are many BC Liberal candidates who are not former heads of large organisations such as those you have listed.

It comes down to what the voters see in terms of service to the local community, not whether they are Chiefs of Police for a district, etc. etc.

As for that Appeal Court judge, his quality as AG has alot to be desired. He hasn't been the best AG B.C. has had.


the ndp do not have this caliber of people. gregor robertson was a decent catch, but he left b/c he saw the party was going no where. he didnt even care enough tell carole james when he left to campaign for mayor.

Fair enough, but people can and do decide what's best for them, not the organisation they are in. People quit their jobs when a new opportunity comes around. Carol Taylor could have stuck around for another term, but did not.

You're also forgetting one thing amongst many.

The voters will ultimately decide if they want another term of the BC Liberals. If they don't, all of that professional success as applied to the campaign will go pffft.

Professional success does not mean automatic success in an election.
I've seen business and organizational leaders in their field run for a provincial and bombed because of poor organisation of the campaign, and simply not listening to those who know what to do and when to do it.

If you yourself are smart, you'd end this silly rant of yours and get out there canvassing 50 houses for your candidate.

That's 50 houses a night for the next 10 days. I've done it. Can you?

After that, learn how to write properly.

your volunteering, if true, is very admirable, regardless of which party its for.

not sure what to make of your obsession with my punctuation though. but if you think you can make the world a better place through commas and capitalization all the power to you.

i'll leave you to your hypocrisy of blogging that other people who are blogging are wasting time.

enjoy the campaign and keep up the volunteering.

It's called proper English usage and diction. Didn't they teach you that in school??

If you wrote a business report with your existing style of writing, it would most certainly be returned to you with a compressed time line to finish it right.

Done that to a few employees once or twice.

I heard that Carol James likes to kick bunny rabbits when she is on Vancouver Island. I can`t support her anti-bunny policy.
