This Day In Budgetland...Spot The Awesome!

And, yes, for those who need a memory jog, the His Awesomeness' given name does, indeed, rhyme with 'Mary'.

And, given that....

Wonder if any young whipper snapper in the Press Gallery thought to ask the pre-Clarklandian Environment Minister what he thinks of Shawnigan Lake's 'Lot 21' situation?

What's it all about Alfie?....Well...This!

The site is hosted on anonymous out-of-country server. I suspect it's getting a record number of hits from government computers.

"We don't know who's behind it," Penner said yesterday. "I thought maybe it was my mom, but she denies it."

Guess who gets saddled with the bill?

Including operating and capital development agreements that have tripled to $3.3 billion since 2010, B.C. Hydro's contractual obligations now stand at $59.7 billion, not including their debt which has grown from $6.8 billion in 2004 to $16.7 billion last year.

They've had to borrow $3.2 billion just to turn around and give it to the B.C. government as so-called dividends.

And, based on the scrutinizing of publicly available docs by Norm Farrell and Bob Mackin it looks like that borrowing by Hydro may soon really balloon...It's like they are trying to turn us into Florida, circa 2008.
