More questions raised about Site C construction compliance with provincial and federal fisheries/water regulations: Despite a number of unresolved and ongoing court cases challenging Site C, preliminary construction is underway and moving at a rapid pace.

Muskrat Falls fiasco provides example for British Columbians of potential future of Site C & why Premier Clark must send project to BC Utilities Commission independent review.: It always freaks people out when I say I’m fiscally conservative. The term evokes images of Harper for most Canadians and the terms slice and dice comes to mind with references to budgets. But the truth is when I say it I don’t mean conservative as in the party, I mean I think it’s important […]

BC Jobs Plan, less than full disclosure: I'm often critical of corporate media but there is still some fine work being done, even by people outside the major urban centres of BC. Here's an example: References to the Temporary Foreign Worker program were scrubbed from a #SiteC job post. https://t.co/aEuRWVu42g pic.twitter.com/mjB4omM2uE...
Natural gas - unclean energy: Today's BC Liberal Speech from the Throne claimed natural gas is "the world’s cleanest-burning fossil fuel."Of course, that's a bit like saying the Tesla Model S is the world's least expensive car to operate. The statement requires ignoring $100,000+ costs incurred before we climb into the driver...

BC’s job market is weaker than the government would like you to believe: Premier Christy Clark rarely misses a chance to take credit for BC’s recent economic growth and job creation numbers even though they have more to do with plunging oil prices and the low dollar than with any action her government has taken. This year’s throne speech was no exception, calling BC “...
BC throne speech rhetoric doesn’t match reality: Yesterday’s throne speech paints a rosy picture of BC as an “island of prosperity.” It acknowledges that “all British Columbians deserve to share in the benefits of a growing economy” but it glosses over the fact that many currently don’t. What is worse, the provincial government’s own inaction i...

BC’s Next Transit Referendum (& One You’ve Likely Never Heard Of):   We all know what happened with that rather unfortunate (insert additional adjectives of your choice here) transit referendum that occurred last spring in Metro Vancouver. What you may not be aware of is that there’s another transit referendum happening right now on Gabriola Island, BC, a 20 m...
There’s nothing clean about the Site C dam: There is something wrong in BC. There is a provincial general election coming up (May 2017) and the premier seems to be determined to secure her legacy by building mega-projects of dubious or even negative value before she gets kicked out of office. Hopefully, the new government in Otta...

Is the TPP "Bitsy Big-Boy Boomeroo"?: When my daughter was a toddler I used to read her Dr. Seuss books at bedtime. I don’t know which of us enjoyed this ritual more, her or me, but one of my favourites was Seuss’ famous anti-war satire, the Butter Battle Book. Although ostensibly an arms race parable, it also probes nationalism and ...

Red-faced after white-roofed wonder blew it: Do pardon B.C. Place Stadium for the French flag faux pas on Nov. 14.

Alex Tsakumis: Clark has offered no leadership in BCTF dispute: [PNG Merlin Archive] In the 1770s, the Queen consort of France was at the height of her popularity.

The evolution of the blog from good articles to dumb tweets and back again: No, not this blog. Just blogs in general.
