    This guy is great. Not only is he fixing the damage done by the NDP, but he's also standing up against the Americans.

    Our province is in major debt. Something has to be done. But, fixing the problem (cutting spendingg) isn't popular with the masses. Campbell knows this, but he's doing it anyway. That takes guts. He knows he won't be re-elected. He knows he probably would be if he didn't cut, but he puts the province before himself. The man's a hero.

    The masses just don't understand the grave economic situation this province is in, made worse by the softwood lumber tariffs. These cuts must be done. The masses do not realize that to fix this province, sacrifices must be made. When all is said and done, they'll realize it, and Gordon Campbell will go down in history beside Trudeau as a great Canadian hero.

    The second thing Campbell is doing is standing up against the Americans. I applaud him for this as well. Canada almost always gets the short end of the deal with the Americans, but most Canadian politicians are too afraid to do anything about it. Not Campbell. He's talking about action. This is what we need. We cannot win this at the bargaining table.

    Canada exports 76% of its goods to the US, and only 65% of our imports come from the US. We can hurt them more than they can hurt us. In order to make our demands met, we need to act. Campbell is one of the few willing to do that. One needs to look no further than our Prime Minister to see what the alternative is. That senile old man won't do a thing to protect Canada's interets. We need strong, brave politicians like Gordon Campbell.

    Sorry, didn't mean any offense. I don't see how it could be offensive, but you're the boss. Lock this if you want.
