A premier battle

B.C.'s environment will be the loser in the fight between Christy Clark and Allison Redford

A real cat-fight is developing between Alberta Premier Allison Redford and B.C. Premier Christy Clark.

All the public hears or reads of late is Enbridge and its crusade to spoil with oil what’s left of once supernatural B.C.

The former disgraced premier Gordon Campbell, who blew a breathalyzer DUI to the tune of Tiny Bubbles, along with Christy Clark and her puppets have to be stopped from selling our home province out completely.

I believe it’s high time once again for we the people who reside in B.C. to take over making all major decisions and let the two girl premiers go play with their dolls in the sandbox (aka the Tar Sands of Alberta). Money isn’t everything.

The B.C. Liberal party still doesn’t get it and can’t seem to understand, as with the HST, No does not mean Yes.

By the way, this oil pipeline no-brainer idea isn’t worth discussing, or the powder may arrive to blow a future Enbridge pipeline to hell before Enbridge can load the line.

Another disaster which would send our home and province to the hell of no return.

Politicians don’t seem to understand they are only elected for the short time, and their children and grandchildren, like all creatures on land and in the sea, will bathe in an oil slick forever.

With due respect — cough, cough — Christy and Allison know about as much about oil as the bum on the park bench if they weren’t briefed before their spin and lip service spout a geyser. Remember, one can’t eat oil or money.

When the food chain goes the way of B.C. Rail, Fast Cats and just about everything a B.C Liberal MLA touches, smells or tastes, like pork it goes up for a garage sale price

Maybe Clint Eastwood can film a sequel of $2 million babies chirping while floating in a tub of Alberta oil.
