Vancouver Sun pretends a 100% government-owned division is a “Business”

imageHOW IS THIS CAPITALIST?

The reported revenue drop notwithstanding, how is this a “business” story?  How does this belong on the “Business” pages of a newspaper? BC Hydro is a giant government division.  A government operation.  It’s 100% government.  Its board of directors are appointed directly by the government —the cabinet, and reports directly to the government.  It is absolutely nothing to do with “business”.  It even has one of those left-wing, authoritarian sounding names:  BC Hydro and Power Authority

Once again we have an example of either totally confused, useful idiots running the liberal media — one which has been suckered over the years by progressives and other Fabian socialists into thinking that a 100% government “corporation” is actually a business, further blurring the lines between government and the private/business;  or a liberal media which has actually been co-opted into helping blur those lines. 

And once again this reminds me of how one citizen, already fully deluded and indoctrinated, was quoted in this same Vancouver Sun, when he decided he needed to sue the 100% government-owned division of the government hideously called the BC Lottery “Corporation”, as saying that his reason for suing that “corporation” was this:  “It’s about keeping corporations honest, that’s really what it’s about.” 

Well done, progressives and your media division.

Does "TweetPoo" sound crass?
