You need a cite for that. Fly or angling? Skookum1 (talk) 23:32, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

BC Rail[edit]

Re this - the incomplete state of that article does not mean it should not be included; anyone in cabinet or caucus at the time of the deal is connected to it; Abbott, like de Jong, Clark and Falcon, have all been noted as being politically-liable in connection with the offsale of BC Rail to friends/backers of the government; I'm not bothering to reverse this SPA's censorship campaign at this point, but it's giving me (and others) good reason to fully update BC Legislature Raids. Abbott has also spoken about the need for at least an inquiry into the "buy out" deal for the guilty plea by Basi and Virk, even though he's demurred on a full public inquiry; that is reason enough to mention the BC Rail case in the article; if his statements about a limited inquiry aren't already in the article, they should be. It's absurd to complain about something being incomplete elsewhere without actually trying to fix the situation. WP:Wikipedia is not censored.Skookum1 (talk) 23:32, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Edit request from 117Avenue, 8 February 2011[edit]

{{edit protected}} Please change the links to 'British Columbia Liberal Party leadership contest, 2011' to British Columbia Liberal Party leadership election, 2011, to avoid redirects. Thanks, 117Avenue (talk) 04:27, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Seems uncontroversial, so Yes check.svg Done — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 09:41, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
The one in the See also section too please. 117Avenue (talk) 19:56, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done that one too. JohnCD (talk) 20:05, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Typo[edit]

Please change "alledged" to the correct spelling (alleged) in the sentence "in the alledged scandal involving allegations of bribes..." --Lainestl (talk) 22:28, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, plus another typo. JohnCD (talk) 22:59, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Unnecessary cap in sect-title[edit]

"3. Campaign for Liberal Leadership" needs to be lower-case "L" (/l/).Skookum1 (talk) 00:43, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Recent news coverage re positions on voting, BC Rail etc[edit]

  • Abbott seeks quick review of BC Rail trial: Possible Carbon Tax exemption for farmers and ranchers, Jason Poon, Merritt News, Feb 7, 2011
    • This and the similar items above are what's needed to be covered on this page, also on the leadership race page - which currently is just a listing of which MLAs, former and current, support each candidate, and which has no "actual" meat on it....a lot of energy was used up due to the name-change issues of that page, and also the efforts by SPAs to control certain pages, all of which could have been substantially improved with expansion of actual coverage of each candidate and their campaigns. The content of the three articles now linked on this talkpage could/should be used to broaden the article content, and the leadership page, but I'm not the man to do it, if you get what I mean. I just think we need more meaet and less potato-flavoured nothing......Skookum1 (talk) 00:43, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
