Lotuslandian blogger extraordinare Merv Adey has something to say about those Clarklandian LNG ads that we are paying for:
We are blanketed with feel-good ads from the Clark government which include a shiny figure of $20 billion already invested in LNG in BC. What are we to make of it? How was this figure arrived at and how has the money been spent since mostly we see no sign of it? I have some answers, thanks to an engaged reader.. What I hope to show below is the case for the Advertising Standards Council of Canada to shut down these ads, because they are manifestly misleading...
And showing how manifestly misleading these ads are is exactly what Merv and his reader do.
They then formulate a number of specific questions that a provincial government would be forced to answer if we had a functioning legislature and/or legislative press gallery/club.
So far it would appear that only Kathy Tomlinson of the Globe (who along with a triumverate of fellow non-club members previously forced the club to actually pay attention in another realm) has had the temerity to ask such questions of the BC Liberal government. It would further appear that the wizards of Clarklandia and have so far 'declined' to answer such questions.
And the point all this is?
It would appear that, unless the National media starts to pay serious attention (and starts to call out local club members for their complicity), these phantom LNG billions will become the successful electoral propaganda-stunt in 2017 that a million fake jobs was in 2013.
