A REALITY CHECK OR A WAKE UP CALL IN BC

 

NDP, Liberals neck and neck in B.C. polls, but Christy Clark could have edge

The Liberals also potentially have a turnout advantage. Mainstreet finds that the Liberals have stronger supporters and give the party a three-point lead among those voters who are most likely to vote and least likely to change their minds. Both Mainstreet and Ipsos give the Liberals a significant lead among older British Columbians, who also vote in larger numbers.

This is ABSOLUTELY BEWILDERING given that older British Columbians have been offered next to nothing by the Liberals, and yet they remember and are so afraid of the letters NDP, they vote from fear not sensibility.

If we had the BPP ( BC BOOMER PLUS ) party, with a platform that catered to what boomers and seniors need and want in this province, we would steal votes away from the liberals.

Seniors across the province are so upset about hospital care, emergency over crowding, surgical wait times, lack of affordable housing, home care, poverty and yet, like my parents , they vote for the party not the policies.

The irony is that older British Columbians value voting more than young people, and yet the Liberals are trying to appeal to families and young people with the economy, jobs & housing, infrastructure , benefits of the site C dam, roads,etc etc and the seniors will vote them IN despite knowing that none of this benefits their daily lives.

And so the result is, without the young people showing up at the polling booth, Liberals win, because Generation X, Y , Z, and Millennia’s don’t trust any government. No wonder; the Centre For Public Integrity has said;” we are at the lowest level of trust in government and companies since the 1930’s”.

Hey young people, next time you see a senior on the street, THANK them, for doing you a favour by electing a party that has ZERO interest in their welfare.

And then when you get old and you need the same things that they need and you are pissed off at the government for not caring, remember May 9th, 2017, when you had ten good excuses for not voting, or had better things to do than prepare for the day either you or parents will need the services that simply aren’t there.

There is a term for all of this , and it’s called “Common Sense Disorder”.

On the BIG BROADCAST this week we open the Xmas Treasure Chest of music and memories of some of my favourites.
ken-lavigne

Our special guest Ken Lavigne is a singer, composer, communicator and consummate entertainer. Currently joined onstage by his band (Piano, Guitar, Bass, Drums and Violin), has charmed his way into the hearts of concert goers across North America with his sincere delivery of ballads, show tunes and classical crossover hits in the style of Andrea Bocelli and Josh Groban.

It’s easy to see why one New York critic described him as having “a voice of liquid gold”. In his new touring concert, Mr. Lavigne takes his audience on an riveting and enchanting journey, retelling his personal campaign to sing at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops.

It’s a unbelievable account of a man who, against all odds found a way to live out his dream of singing on the world’s most prestigious concert stage. Told with spectacular songs and entertaining and hilarious stories Mr Lavigne embodies the spirit of the underdog – audacity, tenacity, tragedy and ultimately… triumph.

OUR FEATURED XMAS SONG THIS WEEK IS “SANTA BABY”

“Santa Baby” was originally recorded by Eartha Kitt with Henri René and his orchestra in New York City on October 6, 1953. It was released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 20-5502 (in the USA), and by EMI on the His Master’s Voice label as catalog number B 10728.

The song was a huge hit for Kitt, and she later said that it was one of her favorite songs to record; she reprised it in the 1954 film New Faces.   Kitt also reprised the original song in a 1963 re-recording for Kapp Records, with a more uptempo arrangement. (Madonna’s popular rendition for the 1987 charity album A Very Special Christmas is based on this latter version.) In 1954, Eartha Kitt recorded a new version of the song with new lyrics titled “This Year’s Santa Baby”, to no commercial success. Writers listed did not change. The song was featured in the 1989 film Driving Miss Daisy.
