Changing the name of the BC Liberal party will change nothing about how the party operates. If you put a new colour of paint on a whore house it is still a whore house.

A name change isn't the best of ideas. Shows lack of integrity.

The party is a model to the world compared to America and Alberta.

Love it Advocate!

I have some suggestions:

1. BC Liars and Secret Party

2. Come get your Pension Party

Comparing the Liberals to a whole house repainting is denigrating the Whore house. I do like the name BC Liars and secret party I almost choked om my dessert when being told the Liberals are a model to the world. Model of best liars around maybe.

The Anti Middle Class Party of BC
