Nevermind those Johnny-Come-Latelys to the LNG stenography club like the good Mr. Palmer of the VSun.
Because it was Mr. Mason of the Globe who was way out in front of 'The Death Of The Sparkle Ponies Means Absolutely Nothing!' curve weeks ago:
...The future of LNG remains at best uncertain, at worst dead, thanks to nasty turbulence in the global energy sector. There will not be a single major LNG venture up and running by the time voters head to the polls in the spring of 2017. The best the Premier can hope for is that some time this year Petronas, the Malaysian energy giant that is closest to making a final call on LNG in the province, announces it is going ahead...
...That said, I doubt Ms. Clark is overly worried that her re-election prospects might be dimming because of LNG. The fact is, she has the No. 1 economy in the country, a privileged position B.C. is expected to hang on to for at least a couple of years, according to the Conference Board of Canada. Her government has tabled three consecutive balanced budgets, driven in part by a real estate and construction boom, making it the envy of the country...
Meanwhile, rumour has it that the number of British Columbians who are having trouble paying their jacked-up MSP regressive tax is now approaching the million mark.
Envy of the country, indeed.
A man named Obvious, you ask?....Well, Chichester Cathedral and all that.
