Christy Clark has pulled off the sort of miracle the Boston Bruins managed when coming back from a 4-1 deficit to the Leafs recently. One would be ungracious not to extend congratulations. The story is more than a matter of manners, for the truth is that Adrian Dix blew the election – big time. I […]

On the side of the Christy Clark bus are the words “Debt Free BC”. This could mean one of two things – we are now debt free or we will be. Either way, this statement stands as the all-time whopper in BC history and that covers a hell of a lot of territory. I do […]

Savvy tactics dictate avoiding the ‘gotcha’ trap set by one-on-one format. I think Adrian Dix would be mad to “debate” with Premier Clark one on one. I realize that as one who thinks Premier Clark and the entire BC Liberal government have been a catastrophe you might expect I would feel this way. In the […]

Will Dix Get Gassed by Clark?

Premier is betting the election on LNG. Where’s the opposition? Premier Christy Clark has just scored points in her Throne Speech by basing her government’s future and our fiscal future on Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) exports.

Mike Smyth had an interesting column in Sunday’s Province, dealing with the proposed second and much larger Kinder Morgan Pipeline to Vancouver, which would see a five-fold increase in tanker traffic through Vancouver’s harbour. In it he told us that the company was being very laid back compared with Enbridge, holding a series of public […]

By the time this is published I’ll be away for two weeks on a neat cruise – Vancouver to Puerto Vallarta and return, no airplanes. I’m often told, “You must be pretty well off to afford all these cruises,” but the fact is that if I had another ten or fifteen years to go I […]

Mike Smyth of the Vancouver Province took on Adrian Dix this morning for not applying the same principles in his stance on the proposed Enbridge pipeline and consequent tanker traffic to the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline twinning. Mike is absolutely right. Dix has shown a political wimpishness which puts him, on this issue at any […]

Dear Adrian Dix, You and your party have taken a strong stand against the Enbridge Pipeline and tanker issues, for which I applaud you. I think you should broaden this policy, but first some background. Stephen Hume has a fascinating article in the Saturday July 14 Vancouver Sun in which he quotes a man from […]
