Remember Robert Vessey of Plan B Fame????


plan 4plan B 3It becomes more and more difficult to believe in or have respect for our Liberal government. Lets have a look at Robert Vessey. This is the guy that in their first term in office didn’t get a cabinet post. He was apparently outraged, so Ghiz got his   wife a plum job at Holland College to placate him. That calmed things down and later on Vessey was appointed to the cabinet as Minister of Highways. Along came Plan B a highway improvement project that looked like costing well over 20 million dollars.  A project that the vast majority of Islanders did not want nor could afford. The province have a huge deficit so wasting money we don’t have on roads we don’t need became a rising tide of public protests to stop it. Nevertheless the minister pressed on, people who’s homes were in the way were taken over by government and the residents moved out. The people who came out to protest this project were arrested and removed by the RCMP. The beautiful Bonshaw Hills were raped and destroyed by Vessey and his cronies all in the name of safety. Now the road is completed and open and most people have calmed down, not much we can do about it now. However Vessey is not finished yet, recently it was announced a new gateway to Charlottetown was planned at the Hillboro Bridge. That is were the government garage is presently located. No costs were available as this was all in the pre planing stages. Then on the day the house closed for the Christmas, Robert Vessey slipped in this little gem. He announced the purchase of approx 250 acres of land for a new government garage site. This latest Vessey purchase is costing the tax payers $850,000, that seems like a huge price for land on PEI where an acre usually goes in the region of $1000 to $1500 dollars per acre. Vessey countered that we should expect to pay these prices for land close to the city!. To date I have no other details, I don`t know where this land is located but understand it is in Vessey`s riding. Now there is a real surprise!!!!! I suspect the reason it was announced so sneakily on the last day of the house sitting is because people are busy with Christmas and probably wont notice or care. When the government return to the house next year, it will already be a done deal and too late for a protest. Unbelievable in this tiny province of just 140,000 people we have such a huge and growing deficit. We have a minister of finance ironically know as the Billion Dollar Man, a Premier who  disregards democracy when ever it suits his purpose. Which seems to be more often than not. We are in a desperate mess with no hope in sight, these idiots will be running this province well into 2016, if  indeed we are still a province in 2016.  If Vessey was to ask the unemployed, the homeless, the poor, the hungry and the disabled, do you think they would see this $850,000 as being well spent???? I guess we can believe in Miracles, and we surely need one and soon. And that is my Monday Morning Rant. God Bless and keep reading.
