...'Thank God For Site C'?
I truly and honestly believe in public works for public good.
And there are many historical examples of such works in British Columbia.
Unfortunately, many of those works are now being actively dismantled in the name of a peculiar brand of neoliberalism that is really nothing more than the cronification of everything in disguise.
Of course, that cronification of everything is also a front end driver of the construction of a new breed of pretend public works.
And the Site C dam, in my opinion at least, perfectly illustrates this cronification.
And no amount of wurlitzering of the 'thousand job miracle' by the Clarklandian Wizards and the proMedia lickspittles in their enthrall will change that.
Which is just another way of saying that, while it once may have been our local version of the Tennessee Valley Authority, all that once was good about BC Hydro appears to be slipping away fast.
