Christy Clark and LNG exports

I had intended, with my latest article in the Common Sense Canadian, to end commentary on the May 9 election but Premier Clark, Hall of Fame fibber and hypocrite, has outdone herself with her proposed $70-a-tonne carbon levy on exports of thermal coal from British Columbian ports, a move that will devastate producers in both […]

Like a large number of people in the WestVancouver- Sea-To-Sky constituency, I am breaking the usual rules – I want the NDP to form the next government but I am passionately opposed to Woodfibre LNG which the NDP candidate supports. If I were to support her, my neighbours, with every justification in the world, would lynch […]

Developing a climate plan to meet Canada’s Paris Agreement commitments is a challenging but achievable task for the federal government. Doing so while meeting Alberta’s and BC’s oil and gas production growth aspirations, however, will be virtually impossible. The oil and gas industry is certainly not going away any time soon, but if Canada is […]

Well, there’s great excitement in the federal constituency of West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country – Liberal MP Pamela Goldsmith-Jones is having not one, not two, but count ’em, three public hearings on the proposed Woodfibre LNG plant, far and away the most contentious issue in this neck of the woods.

Stafford defends the notion that you can interview with one interviewer then have that interview voiced […]

A flash of anger came over me when Ian Jessup of CFAX 1070, Victoria, asked me to come on his show and talk about so-called independent power producers (IPPs), euphemistically referred known as “run of river”. No, I sure as hell wasn’t mad at Ian – he’s is one of the few bright lights left in […]

Desperate people do desperate things. Today I want to talk about Resource Works, the shills for Woodfibre LNG, proposed for Squamish at the head of Howe Sound – BC’s beautiful and southernmost fjord. I’m part of a large group opposed to this plant. Let me, however, make this abundantly clear: Our opposition, contrary to what […]

I live on Howe Sound in lovely Lions Bay. I have lived my entire life in British Columbia, growing up in Vancouver and spending much of my boyhood on this lovely fjord. Howe Sound belongs to all of us. It had been all but destroyed by industry until 20 years ago when rehabilitation was started […]

A response to Resource Works

The following was presented to the Vancouver Province on June 7 in response to an article by Stewart Muir who heads Resources Works, a group actively supporting the proposed Woodfibre LNG plant. The Province printed a much abbreviated version on June 12 and I feel obliged to let you get the full picture of the […]
