Yell It Like It Is

Ho Ho Hogg

I grew up in North Surrey in the 60's.

When someone said a friend of yours was getting into a fight, you went.

That is exactly what happened with me and Gordie/Gordon Hogg.

...or what I learned on the campaign trail

That Didn't Take Long

Bonavista-Burin-Trinity Liberal MP Churence Rogers, Scarborough-Agincourt Liberal MP Jean Yip and South Surrey-White Rock Liberal MP Gordie Hogg.

Newly elected Liberal MP GORDIE HOGG barely had time to sit down and reflect on his South Surrey/White Rock federal by-election victory Monday evening before he got the call he was needed in Ottawa.

HOGG flew out of the west-coast on Tuesday and found himself on Parliament Hill in Ottawa yesterday morning.

HOGG and his fellow newly elected MPS were introduced to their fellow caucus members in a private ceremony at the Parliament buildings in Ottawa. If one looks closely you will notice HOGG is wearing his moose hide lapel pin in memory of the missing indigenous women in Northern BC. Class act.

HOGG expects he will be sworn in officially early in the New Year.

We Have A Winner

GORDON HOGG has earned the honour of representing White Rock/South Surrey in Ottawa when the House of commons returns in the New Year.

Liberal Hogg 14,369 votes

Conservative Findlay’s 12,752

NDP Jonathan Silveira 1, 478 votes

Green Party’s Larry Colero 1,247 votes

Christian Heritage Party’s Rod Taylor 238 votes

Libertarian Donald Wilson 89 votes

Progressive Canadian Party candidate Michael Huenefeld 86 votes

As predicted the race between the Liberals and the Conservative party was very close. HOGG led from the very beginning all be it with at times a very small margin of votes. KERRY LYNNE FINDLAY conceded defeat shortly before 9:30 p.m.

HOGG arrived with his wife LAVERNE to Boston Pizza to join his supporters and members of Team GORDIE. As HOGG arrived the packed audience began a chant of GORDIE GORDIE GORDIE!

HOGG made his way through the throng and delivered a humbling heartfelt speech to all in attendance.

It is interesting to note the Liberals won three of the four by elections that were being held last night across Canada.

Site C Done

BC NDP government approves Site C

The province has given the green light to the controversial hydro dam project. This is despite a recent BC Utilities Commission report finding the $8.3 billion project is over-budget and not likely to meet its 2024 completion target.

Dozens of Delta Farm Workers Rushed To Hospital

More than 40 people have been transported to hospital last evening after carbon monoxide exposure at a greenhouse farm in Delta.

The incident took place at Windset Farms on 41 B St., where a number of people became ill while pressure washing inside a nursery, according to reports. Police believe poor ventilation may have caused a carbon monoxide build-up. When inhaled, carbon monoxide can interfere with the blood’s ability to absorb and transport oxygen.

All but one of the 42 rushed to the hospital have now been released. WORKSAFE BC will be investigating the matter today.

Joke Of The Day

THE LEGEND OF THE CHRISTMAS TREE ANGEL


Santa was very cross. It was Christmas Eve and NOTHING was going right.
Mrs. Claus had burned all the cookies. The elves were complaining about not getting paid for the overtime they had worked making toys, and were threatening to go on strike. The reindeer had been drinking eggnog all afternoon. To make matters worse, a few of the other elves had taken the sleigh out for a spin earlier in the day and had crashed it into a tree.
Santa was furious. "I can't believe it! I've got to deliver millions of presents all over the world in just a few hours, and all of my reindeer are drunk, the elves are walking out, and I don't even have a Christmas tree! I sent that stupid little angel out HOURS ago to find a tree and he isn't even back yet! What am I going to do?"
Just then, the little angel opened the front door and stepped in from the snowy night, dragging a Christmas tree. The angel said, "Yo, fat man! Where do you want me to stick the tree this year?"
And thus the tradition of angels atop the Christmas trees came to pass...
