Stop hanging 'round here this fine morning looking for warmed over snark and, instead, get over to Norm's place right now.
Instead of the usual lede, here's his kicker:
...In FY 2015, BC Hydro facilities generated 41,443 GWh of electricity. In FY 2001, those very same sites produced 49,940 GWh, which is 20% more.
However, here's a vital point. In 2001, BC Hydro had assets of $12.6 billion. In 2015, assets had grown to $27.8 billion. The company has been spending heavily, allegedly to make the system more efficient. In fact, what is continuing is misappropriation of public wealth for the benefit of suppliers, contractors and other BC Liberal friends.
Some people believe the government intention is to privatize BC Hydro. However, I believe the present situation, with another $10 billion of public funds being thrown at Site C, is working just fine for Christy Clark, her cabinet colleagues and their sponsors.
Citizens should be asking for explanations, from politicians and the pro-media journalists who choose to ignore these facts.
Now get on over there and read the entire thing.
There are more of Norm's patented charts, based on publicly available material, and everything.
Why does that 'publicly available material' tag matter?...Because it means that anyone in the puffed-up punditry could be writing about this stuff, right now....No censored FOIR and/or super-secret leakrative insider access required.
