Dale Calder, Legal Aid paralegal in Lillooet, who spent an extra thirteen weeks on the job after the government axed her position and shut her office, because "people [were] desperate";

Ron East, onetime co'chair of Liberal MLA Pat Bell' s Prince George election campaign, who' s still fuming about Gordon Campbell' s after the? election about'face on promises not to sell BC Rail;

Rancher Brad Hope, whose land was sold out from under him ? literally ? when the Liberals auctioned off the rights to coalbed methane under his acreage.

In conversations with voters like these, on'the'ground reporting from every corner of the province meets in'depth analysis of Liberal promises (and the reality). Join veteran political reporters and a host of supporting contributors from the award'winning Tyee website as they look back over the last four years to reveal:

Why Gordon Campbell never won the women's vote

What the folks "beyond Hope" have to say about Victoria

How Liberal promises of increased access to information have panned out

The government's strip'and? sell attitude towards resources ? and who loses

How bad the NDP'inherited deficit really was

A must'read for every voter.
