Give up now. OldTechie is an expert on everything. Trying to rationalize anything , and you will be up to $300 per month in no time.[/quote]
Thank you, I figured that out earlier but pulling someone's flacid chain is kinda fun.... Think, now living in Kelowna, we are spending that amount since our wines are the best..

Could you guarantee B.C. Jobs?

Oil spill disasters require experienced people.

We all need evidence of what exactly the safe guards are along the pipeline,
And in the open ocean.


Pretty sure that is spelled out before approval was given by the authorities having jurisdiction. The approving authority was obviously satisfied.


'The approving authorities' were from Calgary. What did you expect? Even now that Trudeau has decided to throw the NEB out and replace it with something else, they'll still be based in Calgary. British Columbians will still be fighting tooth and nail to protect their province from CAPP, Notley, and Trudeau. (Hey.....that sounds like some sleazy law firm, doesn't it?)

Interestering read....


Now you're just going to confuse the lefty troll platoon with facts. [icon_lol2.gif]

Big stink about a projected $1.3 billion deficit at ICBC, but throwing a wrench into $1.3 billion worth of oil sands business, in the name of appeasing US funded environment crazies with an agenda, is perfectly acceptable.

NDP logic at work for BC families.

Are they all CANADIAN? Do they also not have a vestted interest for the country as a whole? What would it do to their careers if they were wrong? They also have a great deal on the line and are willing to stand behind their choices with their lives and the futures of their families.

I would expect any "approving authorities" to be knowledgeable in the area under consideration.

Sounds like only the really stupid British Columbians would be fighting, because they are too dense or gullible to understand the benefits and only want to buy into the most insane and completely nutty doomsday scenarios. These British Columbians are total idiots.

This whole thing that the fool Heyman has stirred up shows the narrow minded ideology of the "greenies" the BC NDP pander to.

Rachel Notley has the law, and the constitution on her side. Horgan and the fool Heyman have destroyed whatever credibility the BC NDP had (which isn't much) by proclaiming themselves the dictators of western Canada. The federal NDP are hooped - they have been invaded by the LEAPers which forces them into an untenable position where traditional unionist NDPers are left out in the cold.

If the BC NDP are to be LEAPers, then they should change the party name. The BC NDP no longer stand for the hard working folk. At least 5 unions, the Teamsters and Operating Engineers among them, have come out against the BC NDP negative stance on site C and negative stance on pipelines. Thousands and thousands of BC and Alberta jobs, and thousands and thousands more across Canada depend on resource extraction.

Point blank, the weak kneed so called leadership of the BC NDP have been conned into poisoning their party by the LEAPers that want to destroy Canada, not move it forward. All so that worn out hacks within the BC NDP can grab taxpayer $$$ for themselves.

The BC NDP have schizophrenia, and the virus causing it is the anarchist LEAPers. The federal NDP have the same problem, as Jagmeet Singh tries to placate two fundamentally opposing views within the party. Somehow Jagmeet thinks he can lay the anti-democratic nature of the LEAPer problem at the feet of others, but he just exposes himself for having no convictions and no idea how to build a party that serves all Canadians, including BC Canadians.

http://www.macleans.ca/politics/ottawa/jagmeet-singh-dodges-questions-about-alberta-and-b-c-pipeline-fight/

"Singh took a position against the Trans Mountain expansion during the federal NDP leadership campaign. Notley later called his stance on the issue “absolutely wrong,” and said she was not going to concern herself with “what people who are not in government are doing in other parts of the country, in hypothetical conversations, over which they have no agency.”

But on Tuesday, Singh was clear to praise her policies. “If we want to achieve our goals as a nation in terms of reducing emissions and tackling climate change, we can’t do that without a premier like [Notley] in Alberta,” he said."

Yup, yer position is as clear as mud Jagmeet. The NDP, and especially the BC NDP, must decide who they are. Are they a unionist working folks party, or are they the anarchist dictatorial LEAP party? Would the LEAP party have elected ANY MLAs in BC? Maybe one, but more likely none.

This is, at heart, an NDP problem, and the so called leadership of John Horgan and Jagmeet Singh is unable to resolve it. They are like two deer in the headlights, having pandered to a group that knows no balance, accepts no reality, and is tyrannical, obstructionist, and destructively vandalist by nature. So much for the NDP foolish "you can have everything you want for free". The NDP thought they could pander to the LEAPers, and get some free votes - but instead they ignited a civil war within their so called party.

Attempts by NDP stalwarts to deflect this as "Trudeau's problem" or anything else is just nonsense. We are witnessing a civil war for the heart and soul of the NDP, and if the working folks lose out to the LEAPers, the NDP is finished.

That being said, it's time for JT to man up and get this pipeline done.

Enjoyed a couple of nice B.C wines for VD day

And toasted better pipeline safeguards...not to mention tankers.

Go, Horgan/Heyman!

I think Alberta has still got some cards up their sleeves for BC. They could put a huge tax on Canola oil going to BC. As well as wheat, barley, oats and all other cereal crops. That oughta get the attention of those Granola eating green tree huggers. Imagine.........life without trail mix?
