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?
