And, as you might expect, those mean things/hard truths are not things that you will not find clearly enunciated in our local Lotuslandian proMedia.
Of course, in this case the lady in grey is not an idiot blogger but is instead the New York Times:
...In its 2014 report on Site C, a joint federal-provincial panel concluded that BC Hydro “has not fully demonstrated the need for the project on the timetable set forth,” and recommended that the project be reviewed by the province’s independent utility commission. But the cabinet of Christy Clark, the premier of British Columbia, blocked Site C from the commission’s review and has since poured billions of dollars into construction and contracts despite multiple lawsuits seeking to stop the project.
“I will get it past the point of no return,” she vowed early this year...
Democratic processes and principles serially subverted in Clarkland for a cronified megaproject that the citizenry of British Columbia will be paying for for decades, and the local puffed-up pundittry just keeps on keepin' on?
And, of course, a very different lady who is always colourful (and not just on her front page), Laila Yuile, has much, much more.
