Why does the Liberal Government insist on shitting upon coastal ferry users? It’s quite simple really. We are a bunch of socialists.

Under the convenient cover of Rob Ford’s very public downward spiral this week, our governments, Provincial and Federal, have been busy dismantling our Public Trust.

I learned about this scary happening on tonight’s episode of Power Play this fine evening.

Tweet As the sun sets on the BC Liberal Party and the decade long theft of our assets, the fire sale intensifies.

I’m joking of course. Sue-Ann Levy is employed by Lorrie Goldstein and Sun Media. Nobody gets fired over at that outfit. Ezra Levant regularly has to apologize for his blatant racism and lies. But he still resides on the Sun News Network throne. Let’s face it – the right is a no-pink-slip zone.

Yep, here’s where Canada’s Conservative party could one day be headed.
