(Applause).>>The Speaker: THE HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR VERMILION LLOYDMINSTER.>>WELL, MR. SPEAKER, THIS PAST SATURDAY THE WORLD WATCHED THE TWO MOST EXCITING MINUTES IN SPORTS, THE KENTUCKY DERBY. NOW, OBVIOUSLY I LOVE THE HORSES BUT I’VE ALWAYS ADMIRED THE ABILITY OF RACETRACK ANNOUNCERS TO SUMMARIZE AN ENTIRE HORSE RACE INTO TWO MINUTES AND I ASKED MYSELF IF A RACETRACK ANNOUNCER TOOK TWO MINUTES TO DESCRIBE THE PAST TWO YEARS OF NDP GOVERNMENT, WHAT WOULD THAT SOUND LIKE? WELCOME, FANS, TO THE LEGISLATURE DOWNS IN THE FIRST EVER RUNNING OF THE NDP DERBY, ACCLAIMING RACE FOR NON-WINNERS IN THEIR FIRST 28 OUTINGS. THEY ARE AT THE POST AND THEY ARE OFF BREAKING QUICKLY FROM THE GATE. IT’S INITIAL OPTIMISM AND HOPEFUL EXPECTATIONS FOLLOWED CLOSELY BY HONEYMOON PERIOD AND GIVE THEM A CHANCE. HERE COMES NO BUDGET, EMBARRASSING CUSP AND JUST BLAME THE TORIES. MOVING UP FAST IS TAKE CONSULTATION FOLLOWED BY ENGAGED FARMERS AND POLITE CAPITAL. IT’S JUST BLAME THE TORIES, TAKE CONSULTATION,EN RAGED FARMERS AND FLIGHT OF CAPITAL SURGING TO THE POINT WITH HONEYMOON PERIOD AND GIVE THEM A CHANCE LOOKING TIRED AND SPENT. HERE COMES MASSIVE CREDIT AND CREDIT DOWNGRADE. INITIAL OPTIMISM HAS PULLED UP LAME AND HOPEFUL EXPECTATION IS NOWHERE TO BE SEEN. BUT THUNDERING DOWN THE MIDDLE OF THE TRACK, IT’S CARBON TAX! THE LATE ENTRY, CARBON TAX WAS NOT IN THE RACING PROGRAM. HOT ON THE HEELS OF CARBON TAX IS PIPELINE APPROVALS AND PIPELINE CONSTRUCTION. PIPELINE APPROVALS IS LOSING GROUND BUT PIPELINE CONSTRUCTION HAS BEEN CUT OFF BY B.C. ELECTION, BOXED IN ON THE RAIL BY BECK HE’S DEMONSTRATORS AND ENDLESSDIT CIOONNS. SURGING DOWN THE BACK STRETCH IS CREDIT DOWNGRADE FOR THE LEAD. FAKE CONSUATION LTIS ALWAYS THERE BUT JUST WAIT, THE TORIES IS LOSING TRACTION. IT’S CARBON TAX AND CREDIT DOWNGRADE. THERE’S A LATE CHARGE FROM NDP AGAIN AND I’LL NEVER VOTE. DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME. IT’S CARBON TAX, MASSIVE DEFICIT. THEY’RE NECK AND NECK AT THE FINISH LINE. IT’S CARBON TAX BY AN NOSE OVER MASSIVE DEFICIT, CREDIT DOWNGRADE AND I’LL NEVER VOTE INFORMED AGAIN. THANK YOU, MR. SPEAKER. (Cheering/Applause) NEVE VOTER NDP AGAIN. (Applause)>>Speaker: Hon. Robert E. Wanner: TO THE GOVERNMENT HOUSE LEADER, A NEW BENCHMARK MAY HAVE BEEN SET TODAY.>>IT’S BEEN DONE AND GUESS WHO DID IT.>>THE HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR PEACE RIVER.>>THANK YOU, MR. SPEAKER. SOCIAL ISSUES ARE ONE OF THE KEY CHALLENGES WE FACE IN THE NORTH INCLUDING HIGH RATES OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE TENDS TO BE A REVOLVING DOOR OF ARRESTS, CHARGES, VICTIMS DECIDE NOT TO TESTIFY AND THE CYCLE REPEATS. RTA HAS HIGH OVERALL RATES BUT THIS JANUARY MY COMMUNITY OF HIGH LEVEL WAS DISMAYED TO LEARN THAT SPOUSAL ABUSE CASES HAVE SKYROCKETED OVER THE PREVIOUS YEARS. IN LIGHT OF THIS THE SERGEANT STAFF OF THE RCMP TOOK ACTION,ISM AMOUNTING A TWO PHASE ALTERNATIVE MEASURES APPROACH. HIGH LEVEL ALREADY HAD A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE RESPONSE UNIT BUT THERE WERE LIMITATIONS TO ITS EFFECTIVENESS. STAFF SERGEANT GILES EXPAND ON THIS PROGRAM BY ASSIGNING ONE OFFICER FULL TIME TO DOMESTIC FULL, HIRING A

  1. Aww are you all upset because the PCs no longer can build palaces in the sky? private flights on taxpayers dime? 44 years of fiscal irresponsiblity? decimating the heritage fund? You know seeing what we had I'll go for what we got you"re exspence account is closed boo hoo

  2. I would expect the Progressive conservatives to come up with a better plan for reducing pollution then just a Carbon tax. Mind you I don't notice that tax on my gas bill. Just the money is going to good causes instead of offshore accounts. If the Progressive conservatives want the votes of working people, especially those who need clean air, they should go back to the drawing board. The farmers are OK now, when their workers are protected by worksmen's compensation. They don't mind providing safe jobs for the working folks. Most farmers are very descent people.

  3. It seems like some of the runners in this race have still not been saddle broke, all they understand is where the feed trough is!!

  4. Guess who brought in the Carbon Tax here in British Columbia, former right wing Liberal Premier Gordon Campbell, and you worry about the NDP? We are paying approximately 7 cents a litre here on Gasoline and a bit more on home heating fuel. It was nothing but an easy tax grab for the provincial government. If the NDP in Alberta bring it in and Trudeau has his way, it will be right across Canada. No matter which government we vote in or out of office, the B.S. Carbon Tax is coming folks and all we can do is suck it up and get on with our day.
