This Day In Clarkland....Have Two Hundred And Forty-Seven Post-It Notes Gone Missing?

Via Buzzfeed:

...At the Western Premiers’ Conference in early May, Clark said the Lax Kw’alaams leadership “voted overwhelmingly in favour of moving forward into the next stage of this agreement on LNG.”

In an emailed response to Discourse Media about the meeting, the premier’s office stated, “First Nation officials carried out their own internal engagement processes prior to their vote and letter of support to the federal government.” The premier’s office stated that Lax Kw’alaams voted 244 to 3 in favour of developing Lelu Island.

Discourse Media’s investigation found no evidence of such a meeting. In May 2015, community members in Lax Kw’alaams voted to reject a benefits proposal from Pacific NorthWest LNG, which is majority owned by Malaysian company Petronas. No further band meeting appears to have occurred since a new mayor and council were elected in November 2015.

Neither the premier’s office nor the band council provided any documentation of any band council or community vote. Discourse Media also could not identify a single community member who attended or was aware of such a public meeting...



The full report, with extensive on the ground reportage from Brielle Morgan and Ash Kelly of Discourse media, which also includes an admission by a spokesperson in the Premier's office that their boss may have been mistaken on the 'leadership' aspect of things is...Here.

****

So.

What really happened?

Will we find out for real this time, or...

Will the Legislative Press Club members (in good standing) once again run the other way as yet another apparent contradiction seeps out under the door of the premier's office?

Stay tuned...

A whole bunch of them.

And doing the peeling while they are stuffed in our eyes and ears.

Or worse.

all those post it notes gone missing, along with a brain for the premier. Its like she says the first thing which will serve her purposes and the MSM, well they forgot how to get anything out of their mouths, except to read from the daily song sheets as presented to them on those missing post it notes.

Ah...reality, the MSM stupidity knows no bounds...the truth...well you don't really want to hear that anyway.
The liebrals are making this up as they go along. How long before the house of cards collapses in their face?
The people in this province are going to have to stand up to this...sooner or later....

And another lie (obfuscation?) is swept under the rug. Its getting so tiring I seldom bother to listen, much less keep count. Is that her latest ploy -bore you to death?
