The Good Ship B.C. was drifting along in the economic doldrums back in the year 2001, when a new captain and crew took command.
The waters were rough at first, but the Good Ship was skillfully navigated into prosperous waters, where we have been happily sailing for the last 12 years.
Oh there was a serious storm; the worst some had seen, that hit in 2008, but our ship was in good hands and has been negotiating its way carefully, faring much better than some other vessels that have been swamped by the economic gale that is still with us.
Unfortunately, lately, the passengers on the Good Ship B.C. have become complacent and have perhaps not been giving enough credit to the skill of our Captain and crew. Some passengers have decided to take away the helm and set a new course. Like the ill fated Queen of the North, we are headed for trouble. It is NDP island that we are aiming to hit. It seems like a safe place to some, but lurking below the surface of the waves are the treacherous NDP policy shoals which will tear into the Good Ship B.C.’s hull. Those policy rocks are not clearly visable until it’s too late. We may end up grounded, or we may end up sinking into an ocean of debt that even our grandchildren will not be able to pay off. But either way the smooth voyage will come to an end.
If we don’t change course, we will all suffer. Impact day could be May 14, 2013 (It’s dead ahead).
