Christy Clark corruption makes the New York Times



Well, Postmedia News missed it but Christy Clark's political corruption just made the New York Times. The New York Times is reporting that Christy Clark gets personally paid $50,000 a year above and beyond her $195,0000 salary from the Liberal party which comes from political contributions. When you make tax deductible contributions to a political party, that doesn't usually go directly into a politicians pocket as salary.

The New York Times reports that the son of BC's conflict-of-interest commissioner works for Christy Clark. That is dripping in conflict of interest. Like I keep saying, BC politics is way more corrupt than Quebec. The only difference is that Quebec has a task force investigating organized crime while BC doesn't. In fact, every time a police task force found organized crime, a government body disbanded that police task force. Christy Clark is the queen of corruption in a party that has been dirty since Gordon Campbell.

The article claims "Unlike many other provinces in Canada, British Columbia has no limits on political donations. Wealthy individuals, corporations, unions and even foreigners are allowed to donate large amounts to political parties there." Political donations from foreigners? Let's look at how much money China's organ harvesting of political prisoners contribute.

The Vancouver Sun stated that the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development declared that foreign donations to political parties threaten sovereignty. Teck Resources and its affiliates, which are 17 per cent owned by the government of China, have donated more than $2 million to the B.C. Liberals.

The Globe and Mail reported that "A prominent Vancouver real estate developer wanted by the Chinese government on corruption charges has made numerous political contributions over the years, particularly to the B.C. and federal Liberal parties, and also has a daughter who heads the provincial branch of the Young Liberals of Canada."

Not to mention BC Rail and Campbell Heights or the cuts to the BC Gang Task Force. Much.

Update: Foreign money poses threat to B.C. democracy

Douglas todd from the Vancouver Sun is reporting that "Australian voters are outraged by recent exposes, including an Australian Broadcast Corporation investigation that revealed China-related companies gave more than $5.5 million to Australian politicians. Australian voters have become disgusted by the fact they live in one of the few advanced countries in the world that allows foreign companies, without restriction, to donate to its political parties. Australia’s politicians are, in effect, finally facing censure for acting just like another outlier, the B.C. Liberal Party, which has also taken in millions of dollars from companies based in Europe, the U.S. and Asia."

Foreign donations draw scant attention in B.C.

Douglas Todd also points put that The issue of foreign political donations draws little public attention on Canada’s West Coast, however. Although the federal government and most provinces ban corporate and union contributions, the B.C. Liberals in the past decade took in more than $70 million in corporate donations (while the NDP accepted $11 million from unions). More than $12 million was donated to the B.C. Liberals by the real estate sector.

  1. WOW, no limits? Just buy the government you want, I guess? And China, don't even get me started. Wonder how many people in government are bought and paid for by Organized Crime to have that place awash in drugs. No wonder the cops only make the occasional "low hanging fruit" bust.

    "Burn the witch"..... :-D

    1. This is true but we cannot lose faith. Politicians start and end wars. Politicians raise and lower taxes. Politicians grant and remove civl liberty. That's why politics is important and why the dark side is so determined to infiltrate it.

      As Martin Luther King once said, "It is still one of the tragedies of human history that the children of darkness are frequently more determined and zealous than the children of light." With a paycheque like Christy Clark, we can see why.

  3. The children of darkness are rarely honest about who they are. Most often they lie about that, their objectives, and how they plan to accomplish them. Who would vote for them if they told the truth. And that's why politics, education, and journalism hold such great attraction for them. Without significant influence in those arena's they are powerless.

  4. What a SURPRISE!!! Postmedia being for us The Vancouver Sun, Province and Nationsl Post, missed this story? How could that happen? Doesn't the Sun call itself "Strictly Westcoast?". In fairness, they must be terribly busy with all those meetings helping the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers run our governments and their partner Resource Works shilling away for the proposed LNG Refinery at Squamish. One good thing for them, however, mutual masturbation with the oil industry means you don't have to worry about journalistivpc principles any more.

  5. I don't know if this is the real Rafe, but he does comment from time to time on other blogs. Check out Laila Yuille's blog and RossK at Pacific Gazetter. I've seen his comments there. You can compare the writing styles.

  6. We need a revolution in Canada to get all the corruption of the governments and bankers out of power. They have stolen trillions of dollars from Canadians. They should get the death penalty. Bankers should get the death penalty for Treason. They have hyjacked the world and everyone sits around as if this is normal. IT IS NOT! 100 years ago you would gotten hung for charging interest on loans and mortgages. It's against are constitution. Read on common law and you will see the truth. ICBS is all corrupt and illegal as well as permits for everything. The bankers own the gov's ICBC, police etc. Time to take them down. Gov't and police work for the corrupt bankers not the people of this world. Wars are only for the bankers fighting over world power and money. Do your research! This is all true
