Tag Archive 'BC Hydro'

Yesterday morning, listening to Suzanne Anton, one of my co-panellists on Rick Cluff’s Early Edition political panel, avoid the issue of BC Hydro rates rising because of the scandalous sums they are forced to pay private power companies – and government avoidance of the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC) – fill the airwaves with hot air and non […]

How about a bit of totally nonsensical speculation of the order of “Hitler is alive and well living in Argentina”. Something utterly absurd. I bring to this speculation a very unique history – I’m the only person in captivity who’s been fired twice by Jimmy Pattison. I rather like Jimmy – going out for dinner […]

I have called it the Campbell/Clark government because that’s what it is. Premier Clark was in on the beginning of most policies including the disastrous energy plan that sees private power companies (IPPs) destroying our rivers to produce power for BC Hydro which it doesn’t need and must take anyway, bringing Hydro to the brink […]

A report on legalized theft

Posted on thecanadian.org you will find a report on BC Hydro by economist Erik Andersen, Sinister financial vectors at BC Hydro, and it should shock all British Columbians. I must add that I feel vindicated since I’ve been saying these things for 2 ½ years based on inferred evidence fortified by the lack of rebuttal […]

Hobbling BC Hydro so private firms can profit big is bad public policy. Two Simon Fraser University professors, both experts in power issues, have written scathing critiques of the Campbell government’s energy policy. First, they affirm the argument I’ve been making for over a year — that BC Hydro is being forced to buy private […]

Far be it from me to ruin the happy tune, but here are three key questions. I can hear it now… Tom Jones is telling us about stepping off the train… the old house is still standing… there’s his Momma and his Poppa… and of course sweet Mary with hair of gold and lips like […]
