BC’s NDP: big labour pays their salaries – and is chummy with Trump, too

From the Straight, not exactly a paragon of anti-NDP sentiment:

Oh, and here is a fascinating video on the BC NDP’s pals palling it up with Donald Trump – the guy, you know, who this week killed off 20,000 B.C. softwood lumber jobs.

    Here is the original Straight article quoting a Liberal candidate:


    Here is a Straight commentary arguing corporate donations are inherently worse then union donations


    The BC NDP will ban corperate and union donations (cutting the strings). Banning corperate and union donations should be the minimum standard to be considered progressive these days.

      Yes, that would be banned. I expect he would give the money back if the Liberals give back the money from thier many similar fundraisers.

    I’ve lived in BC for 25 years, and I’ve come to the conclusion that most people have their minds made up, and aren’t influenced by this kind of story. They seem to have Lib, NDP, Green in their genetic makeup, and news of one kind or another doesn’t influence them. I think there’s a drift from the NDP to the Greens this time, but I don’t believe that 20% are undecided…they just don’t want to tell the pollsters.

    My take is that it’s a choice between gov’t by the Chamber of Commerce and gov’t by the BC Federation of Trade Unions, with a lot of millennial and yuppie support going to the Greens.

    I don’t like what Horgan did, but he’s the one who tried to cut the strings by banning the donations, and he promised to do so if elected.

    He has nothing to gain by not doing so as the BC Liberals aren’t going to ban them, that leave Horgan the only game in town if you want the strings cut, so it doesn’t really change the voting choices, NDP leaning voters can blame it on Clark saying he’s just playing by the rules so he can compete. Doesn’t make taking the money right, but if you want it to stop you have vote NDP.

    Why should this surprise anyone? Trump’s stance on trade was indistinguishable from that of Bernie Sanders — or the Canadian Labour Congress.
