There is nothing... no argument, no set of facts, no scenario, that would peel the democratian off their moronic positions on replacing a bridge that does not need replacement while stuffing loot rail down our throats with it.
Pat Campbell shares that view. And he got his ass kicked at the polls because of it.
The rag, of course, refuses to acknowledge the impacts of the ever-increasing horrific news about financing our local bridge turd. So, forgetting how Campbell got elected in the first place, the rag tries to sell the idea that his defeat was based on his failure to campaign.
They write that nonsense forgetting all about how he was elected in the first place.
Among other things, they write:
Pat Campbell this year chose to avoid campaigning and let his service on the Vancouver City Council speak for itself.It did. And THAT is why he lost.
But to acknowledge that is to acknowledge how horrifically wrong they've been about the project that was Campbell's political undoing.
As a brief reminder, the two candidates who combined achieved 67% of the vote are somewhat more opposed to the proposition that wasting $8 to $10 billion on a project that will achieve none of it's aims... and doing that without asking us... is not a good idea.
Campbell was infected with the arrogance of a "Liar" leavitt, an inexhaustable ability to spend our money.
And THAT is what defeated him.
This kind of idiocy from the democratian represents why they've become such a cancer on our community. They are ALWAYS right, ALL the time.
Even when, as this column proves, they're terribly, terribly wrong.
