Bralorne At Hastings
At the races last night. The night crowd is something else. You would think they were drinking free beer or something.
I do not read the programme so I was surprised when the track announcer informed us one of the races was sponsored by Bralorne Gold Mines. Bralorne are a penny stock company redeveloping the once bountiful Bralorne properties up around Gold Bridge. At one time the stock traded for dollars and cents. Now it trades in cents.
What the fuck were the motherfuckers from Bralorne doing at the races? I reached for my phone and found out. At the end of May one Patrick Kinsella, noted horse owner and somewhat shadowy political fixer, was appointed to their board.
To invest or not to invest. That is the question. So far it does not look like the man behind our fishy Premier has helped attract many investors to the golden hook of what once was, and may again become for all I know, a splendid mine.
