We must have some investigative reporters in B.C. who can give us the answers to the following rumours and rumblings.
Are the U.S. government or U.S. oil companies paying some Canadians very well in order to protest pipelines in Canada? To make sure that our bitumen/oil is landlocked and not able to reach international markets — that way we would only have one customer: the U.S. who will ship it back to us refined and at inflated prices. Is that a possibility? Are we really so stupid?
Eagle Spirit Energy in Northern Alberta/B.C./Yukon/NWT is financing a pipeline crossing native lands thru to Alaskan ports. Who will benefit most from that?
Horgan and his side-kick Andrew Weaver should be paying more attention to the already worrisome environmental problems in B.C. (i.e. the fiasco of raw sewage pouring into the ocean from cities along the coast). Doesn’t that taint the fish and beaches? Why isn’t anyone protesting that?
Horgan should be promoting sustainable energy by introducing incentives for solar, wind and geothermal energy to every citizen in the province. This is Canada; in winter it is cold. Canadians need to be able to provide themselves with sustainable energy at a reasonable price to keep warm. FortisBC sure isn’t thinking about that. Why hasn’t anyone jumped on that bandwagon?
Site C dam is only being constructed so that we can sell the product to the U.S. or other entities. It won’t benefit B.C. ratepayers — we are the ones paying for it and our rates are going up because of it. Why are we defacing our landscape and flooding our farmlands if we don’t need it? Are we really thinking of all of the animals and citizens who are/have been displaced? Is that how environmentalists think?
We will be known soon as the land of weed and wine. Soon we won’t have a care in the world.
