Who is really running the show?
Hey folks, seems that we are all a little bit buffaloed by the deceit furnished by Christy Clark.
Some myopic notion of an alleged future prosperity, based on what? A fading hope for some kind of energy resource bonanza?
Well over here on the sidelines, from someone who has worked in the heavy industries, I can tell you about the drug business that keeps things rolling. Like it or not, self righteous indignation is not worth much, get over it.
No, my complaint is not about some concocted potentially prosperous reality, or the remarkably expensive hydro power to be realized, or the jobs for all those tar patch refugees, with expensive work habits (the fentnyl issue is no surprise). No it is about the water!
No Site-C is not about electricity for some 48,000 homes for a mere $9 billion paid for by you and me. No it is about the water, something we so blatantly take for granted (we use three times the national average) here in the Okanagan. It is about water for the energy sector. The tar patch and LNG both use extraordinary amounts of water, water called waste, will be poison for millenia (oh, technology will save us, well good luck with that).
Things are not quite as rosy as some would have us believe. In the end Christy Clark did not actually get elected, after all she is just a leftover radio talk show host … leader? … not so sure. Who is really running the show and why?
