Mind you, to do that properly, you'd need to show them what the return would be if you had divested... those results may surprise you.

For me I see beyond the supposed hypocrisy in this. Its pure optics. But...it also shows that when you take the emotion out of the equation and simply use the data for a business case that BC IMC realizes the potential for its clients.

If you took a poll of all the public sector workers whose pensions were affected here and provided them with a list of what BC IMC is invested in along with all the other Union pension plans and showed the 5 & 10 year returns on these investments you wouldn't hear too many folks saying 'divest'.


The only hypocrisy is the current government supposedly being for the union workers, while they're trying to torpedo their pension investments.

I've seen very little benefit to unions yet from the GreenDP. However, all the big bargaining is coming up soon... guess we'll see. If PR were to pass in referendum though, I can see the Greens taking down the government as soon as PR is put in place.

Burnaby MP to quit, run for Vancouver mayor

Burnaby South MP Kennedy Stewart says he will resign his federal seat at the end of the current session. He's going to run for mayor in Vancouver as an independent candidate. Stewart was arrested along with Green Party Leader Elizabeth May in March for violating a court order related to the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

Ya know what Horgan should do is contact Trudeau and say BC will agree to have the pipeline built as long as Energy East pipeline comes to fruition.

It's for the good of the country after all, those easterners importing dirty foreign oil, tanker traffic up and down the St. Lawrence Seaway, a spill is inevitable.
