Another bitter pill

I read that our elected officials are spending $200,000 of our money to ‘con’vince us to do what they want.

This sounds pretty much like a repeat of the ‘Plan A’ con job. Patricia Ross seems to be the only councillor refusing to swallow the ‘P3 pill’! Maybe the ‘Plan A’ pill left a bitter taste in her mouth, and she is analyzing what is in the ‘P3’ pill a little closer – something to remember when we go to the polls! It’s rare to find politicians so dedicated to truth.

Remember Metro Vancouver’s hired gun who was here to sell us on Waste To Energy?

It will be the same for the P3 promoters – it is their job to convince us of the lie that P3 is the only and best way.

The P3 idea is imported from England where it began 10 years or so ago. One UK hospital has already extricated itself from a P3 contract to save money, and the UK government is looking to re-open other P3 contracts, whose large profits go to offshore traded companies.

So, instead of following the Brit’s lead on P3s, why don’t we jump ahead and just not do them?
