And So It Begins...


Last week we noted a bit of pithy anti-Club reality uttered by retired proMedia member Rod Mickleburgh:

And then, by week's end we got a piece in the Financial Post under Jesse Snyder's byline overtop a headline that said:

"It's Going To Cost A Fortune': Cancellation Of $8.8B Site C Dam Would Scrap Billions Of Dollars In Contract Work.


I just have have to ask, before I even begin to untie the pretzel of the logic of the header and/or the piece itself...

Are these people insane?

I am assuming that he is referring to the billions of dollars this project is going to cost which is likely north of 10 billion dollars when all is said and done. What he doesn't mention is that this is nothing more than another initiative of the BC Liberal government indebting many, many future generations of British Columbians with inflated hydro bills. It must be also remembered that the hydro rates are as regressive as the MSP rates we have been paying for far too long.

Actually, it's all about the much less it would cost to stop and thus implying as the headline states explicitly that it would be better to instead go ahead and blow the whole wad.

That is why the logic is so pretzillian.
