Gordon Campbell and Peter Mansbridge at 2010 Bilderberg
Gordon Campbell is commercializing B.C.'s fresh water so that multinational corporations can export hydroelectricity to California....
/FYI... an interesting story about Gordon Campbell's 4 day visit with the Bilderbergs (the wealthiest people in the world) at a meeting in Spain, at BC taxpayers expense. He's over there selling off our province. What an outrage!!! The comments below the article are worth the read too. /
in today’s Guardian newspaper shows Campbell among a covey of other official Bilderburg participants. He was there with other political figures including the finance minister of debt bedeviled Greece (George Papaconstantinou), two past architects of U.S. war policies (Henry Kissinger and Richard Perle), and Larry Summers, top economic advisor to U.S. president Obama.
The list also includes powerful heads of giant multi-national corporations including Microsoft, Coca-cola, Google and Goldman Sachs International. The annual meeting of the Bilderberg group is secretive and by invitation only, and therefore ready fodder for conspiracy theorists.
On Sunday, The Vancouver Sun gained what it termed a "brief interview" with Campbell, noting the premier would "not go into specific detail about what was discussed." Campbell did say, "We talked about the economy, we talked about trade, we talked about health care and the challenges that health care presents to all economies with the changing demographic."
"We talked about how is it possible to feed the world and what are the barriers that are in the way of us actually accomplishing that goal."
"Everybody is connected now with international trade. Everyone will be affected by what happens with the European currencies and that's a significant issue everyone is concerned about."
UBC professor of international law Michael Byers, a federal New Democrat who has run for Member of Parliament in Vancouver, would like Campbell to be more forthcoming about the goal and results of his four days spent with the Bilderbergers, paid for by citizens of B.C.
"One doesn't need to be a conspiracy theorist to be concerned that the Premier of B.C. is attending secret meetings with the power brokers of global capitalism, including Henry Kissinger and Peter Sutherland, the chairman of Goldman Sachs International. These are people who see countries as commodities, available for take-over and trade -- along with their natural resources -- without regard for the interests or opinions of their citizens."
Byers added, "The parallel with Paul Gross' 2004 CBC drama ‘H20’ is particularly disturbing. There, the Bilderberg Group engineered the rise to power of a Canadian prime minister -- and the incorporation of Canada into the United States -- in return for the commercialization and export of Canada's freshwater. Gordon Campbell is commercializing B.C.'s fresh water so that multinational corporations can export hydroelectricity to California. So what's the quid pro quo? Does it only come later, in the form of lucrative positions on the boards of Bilderberg-associated companies? Or has some of it already arrived?"
Maybe CBC anchor Peter Mansbridge will have the story. He attended this year’s Bilderberg meeting, too, along with fellow Canadians Indigo Books chair Heather Riesman and TD Bank Financial Group Deputy Chair Frank McKenna.
of corporate power must think they`ve won the ultimate lottery when our own little man gordo shows up and gives away the property and any chance of an economic future for the foolish rubes he and his corporate paymasters hoodwinked into electing this turbo-neocon regime in victoria that treats the common property of bc citizens like their own private property.
It's rather disgusting that Campbell was shilling solo in Spain. I thought he'd closed all of those deals during the Olympics. As for Peter Mansbridge, can one call him a journalist anymore? Which is why I truly fear the planet's future.
When you have journalists complicit in world domination by a group whose whole existence is to keep the rich, rich, the rest of us peons face an increasingly polluted, corrupt and unstable world.
I'm sick of this constant silly yakking about "conspiracy theorists", by self imagined superior minds.
"Conspiracy theory" is an expression made up by professional mind benders, like the idiocies of "consumers" and "wealth creation", to divert attention from the facts and sordid realities to make people who question these secret get togethers by the biggest criminals of the corporate mafia, ridiculous.
The word "conspiracy" originates from the Latin "cum" = "with" and "spiro" = "breathing" = "breathing together", which means that all special interest gatherings, religions, political parties, etc. are bona fide conspiracies.
The ruling classes of the world, through history, have long discovered the simple physical fact that "wealth can not be created, only taken" and always have used their imaginary, or violence induced powers to "take" as much as they could, while covering up their actions with religions and ideologies.
In other words, when the sole purpose of a group is to "take", it is criminal conspiracy, even if taught in our universities as "economics".
The Bilderbergers and the Trilaterals, also NAFTA, "globalization" etc. are criminal plans and organizations to "take" everything they can, and the sole purpose of their gatherings is conspiring for legalized grand theft, while calling it "competition".
The politicians are attending these secret meetings to get offers for the sale of their countries and peoples in to subservience and slavery, while calling it "freedom" and "wealth creation", and most important, to collect the best post politics directorship offers for their efforts.
If these actions aren't conspiracies, what the hell are they ?
What's the difference between conspiring to rob a business, or to destroy family farms and control the world's food supplies, while calling it "free trade" and "free enterprise"
