What are they thinking of | BC Green Party

tantrum-old-lady.gifI got an email from my former MLA, Andrew Weaver (former as we have moved out of the constituency) talking about MSP premiums, which are basically a tax on the poor. I mean really, it is just that, and awhile back I even presented an oral presentation to the newly elected Campbell Liberal Government about just this issue.

Funny, here we are years later and once again, the MSP premium issue has arisen, which is really unfair.  Those who earn the least, are forced to pay an outrageous premium, while those earning hundreds of thousands, pay a few pennies more than those who earn less that thirty thousand.

So yes,  I signed the petition (you can see it here) but when I wanted to have it post to my Facebook page, well gee, I got this lovely notice, that by letting the Green Party app (nationbuilder) access and post the info, it would also collect my public Facebook profile, my friend list, emails, and cities of my friends.

Honestly, you would think that the one party that would be more in touch with reality, would avoid a plugin or app that would do that kind of thing. For starters, I wonder how many will read that notice, before they click the “Allow” button, and then have all their friends suddenly inundated with solicitations from God Knows Who.

As much as I agree with the petition, it isn’t my place to list my friends names with some other party, without their permission. After all, isn’t that what PRIVACY is all about., something that is very important, a part of our so-called Free Society?

This is just wrong in my mind, and the Green Party should be ashamed for even allowing such an app/plugin to be used on their website.  Speaking of websites, the Green Party seems intent on collecting far more information than any other Political Party, which saddens me really.  Heck it is something I’d have expected from the Harper Conservative and his provincial counterpart, the Clark Liberals.
