Motion on Throne Speech could topple government this week

Motion on Throne Speech could topple government this week

"Your brand is the single most important investment you can make in your business".

Christy Clark has set the bar high in claiming to be a changed person; a humbled MLA, interested only in working across party lines for the benefit of every British Columbian.

The other bill would have banned corporate and union donations to political parties - something promised by the NDP in the recent election campaign. Judith Guichon will allow the NDP, formally backed by the Green Party with a four-year supply and confidence agreement, to form the government.

"Let's decide the election, seven weeks after the fact", Horgan said in the legislature. The Liberals are to speak for three days on their own speech.

At the time, de Jong said the NDP proposal would require taxpayers to foot the bill to fund political parties - an argument Premier Christy Clark used repeatedly on the campaign trail in the following months.

"It's a bit baffling that the Green party, which asked for exactly these changes, has made a decision to vote against even looking at it", said Wilkinson. "If that is so, it strikes me that we should be able to accommodate that between now and Thursday".

"My feedback from my supporters, which you would consider probably the conservative area of the province, has been very strong", he said.

"I'm not sure that's the case", said Lekstrom, adding he expected public cynicism.

Islanders swap Strome for Oilers' Eberle
In that sense, regardless of what Strome produces in Edmonton, this looks to be a deal that can work for both sides. The move frees up cap space for the Oilers, who have some big-money signings coming up.


Just one speaker stood for the NDP - Carole James. "I would say it's a problem of character and ethics".

And now we're supposed to believe that same guy had an epiphany in favour of a welfare hike right after losing the election? Critics inside and outside the Liberal party questioned the abrupt shift.

Starbucks coffee CEO Howard Schultz has argued that being genuine is key to success.

Strip away the rhetoric and the press conferences and the theatre surrounding the debate and the failed legislation and the main point of significance Monday was the Liberals are not giving unanimous consent to the NDP's non-confidence motion.

Last week's throne speech was filled with new policies lifted directly or indirectly from the NDP and Green platforms.

"There's some speculation the premier will advise the lieutenant governor to call a snap election, I think that's highly unlikely, I think the lieutenant governor sees there's an alternative government in waiting", Prince said.

Also don't forget that the party's campaign director, Laura Miller, has been dispatched back to Ontario where she soon faces a criminal breach of trust charge in connection with police allegations related to the deletion of Ontario government records. The BC Liberals, she said, would work with the private sector to build social and accessible housing.

The survival of the Liberal government will be short lived, however.
