This Doomed Day In Clarkland...The Fourth Delete?


First, CKNW's lede from Liza Yuzda on yesterday's presser from the Clarklandian CEO of Hydro:

On the heels of Tuesday’s series of letters between B.C.’s political leaders about the future of Site C, BC Hydro’s CEO met with reporters to give their position on the scheduling and cost of delaying the project.

By her team’s calculation, Jessica McDonald says it could cost $630-million to put off moving two homes in the path of the project’s work. The Premier estimated it at $600-million.

McDonald – who would not go on tape – says there are no other options than for the move to happen next month as scheduled or the river diversion set for 2019 would be delayed...


Did you see what I saw?

...McDonald - who would not go on tape...


Do you even have to delete a statement that is not backed with credible documentary evidence if said statement was never recorded for replay and/or posterity?


Is it possible that this is all some kind of cronified zen grift from the wizardry?

anything is possible once the bc liberals leave office

single, double, triple, quadruple, quintuple, sextuple, septuple, octuple, ..., n‑tuple

There's a job vacancy, sitting, waiting, to be filled, on the Board of BC Hydro Authority. Board Resourcing and Development office

Now would be a great time to apply, because everyone else on the board were hand picked by the BC Liberal's Christy Clark

n-tuple, indeed.

Now, that is a zen grift to infinity.

All joking aside this 'no tape' gambit sure is reminiscent of that time BC Housing had that 'technical briefing' on the affordable housing land/re-zone/cheap loans-for-cronies grift that was not for attribution or some such codswallop.

You guys lost me there. Any word of what went down at the IBCA meeting today?

Sorry about that...

Re: The Batemanning...

Pink slip PR stunt.

Many of said slips remain to be verified.

And I'm betting their referendum stuntin' 'n turfin' will be done on PropRep....Side bet ('prop' bet, if you will) if things get that far - this will be a proxy war for Crony Party.

Ross, this is an interesting article from CBC..

This could end up costing site C a heck of a lot more than $630,000,000.00 all due to BC Hydro/ Christy Clark refusing to compromise.

Can you make the above link clickable?
