This Day In Clarkland...Is The Chief Sparkle Pony Purveyor Playing Chicken With The Trudeau Government?



Is it up to something else?


What's all about this time, Alfie?

Well, this, from Yadullah Hussain in the Financial Post:

Progress Energy Ltd., a unit of Malaysia’s state-owned Petronas Bhd., is drastically slashing its capital expenditure as it awaits a final approval from the Canadian environmental agency on a proposed liquefied natural gas export project on the West Coast...


If not a game of chicken what could this other thing be?

Well, remember how suddenly, out of nowhere, the Keef started babbling on about how he was 'hearing' that the approval from the Feds is pretty much a done deal recently?

Which looks to me like somebody is trying to cloak all the Sparkly things with an aura of inevitability or some such thing.


Who would do a thing like that?

Christy Clark & Rich Coleman have allowed Petronas to be in the drivers seat during negotiations with this Foreign owned company.
And don't be surprised is the Liberal government secretly bends even more before the ink dries... ( Yesterday in The Star Online )

" Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) has urged all stakeholders in the liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry to take the bold steps to help curb the vicious cycle of LNG price volatility.

The national oil company also emphasised on enhancing mutually-beneficial partnership among producers, buyers, industry contractors and governments to spur investments. :

This sounds like... okay Christy... give us a few more concessions before we go ahead.
