BC is now worst destination for O&G investment due to NDP

B.C. is not a 'one-trick pony', and neither is AB since Rachel Notley took over and diversified her energy portfolio. However, CAPP would like nothing more than to bring AB back to one-trick pony status, and our previous government was just fine to let BC follow them down that path. Why? Large party donations talk. If you check the BC Liberal past donations list, you'll find CAPP at or near the top.

I'm confident that the BC NDP will diversify just as the AB NDP have.

Certainly is an NDP penchant. The BC NDP of the 1990s killed mining and other investments, grew the size of government. BUT as always, ran constant and large deficits. Given that most of the current BC NDP power players are holdovers from that bunch of incompetents, why expect anything else?

LOL - more kool-aid from the lunatic NDP fringe. The NDP can't diversify anything. What they need to do is fall as a government as quickly as possible for the benefit of every single person in BC.

It's unfortunate that you didn't read the whole link. You wouldn't be setting your hair on fire and running around screaming 'Carbon tax!" if you had.

The Alberta NDP plans, yup they actually have one, might have a chance to succeed if the incompetent and phony BC NDP weren't getting in their way. But then the BC NDP have a well deserved reputation as having No Dang Plan. Although this time they did have a secret one - to rip the BC taxpayers off to pay for their incompetently run bankrupt party and its debts.

Of course that means the reins are being held by the financially incompetent BC NDP, so the province will get trashed just like 1990s. Then the next government will be hamstrung by the mess the BC NDP create. Isn't taking them long. Scaring off investments. Reviewing the heck out of everything because "the dog ate my homework". Putting obviously incompetent ministers in place.

2017 is already sliding, and the BC NDP are headed heck bent down the track of "Noooo" to driving the province into the ditch - again!

I did. It's just propaganda to support the idiotic position that people should be taxed for using gasoline in their cars and heating their houses with natural gas, and that tax that is stupidly charged for no reason should then be used to pour into disgusting scams like wind turbines and solar panels, which aren't "green" at all, and generate almost no power. This isn't "diversification", it's ripping off the poor and the middle class to support unsustainable hairy fairy leftist nonsense. It's criminal, and awful. These people should be put in jail.

I've always thought that a small dose of NDP government once every 16-20 years or so is a good thing just to remind everyone of how much worse things can always get.

Apparently I will have to rethink that notion now seeing just how much damage they have been able to do in such a short period of time when they don't even have a mandate to govern.

Can only imagine how much damage Grinning Johnny would be doing if he had actually won the election.

It isn't just O&G investment that the NDP party of "Nooo" is affecting. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/site-c-will-be-a-strategic-asset-in-fight-against-climate-change/article37122067/

"Greg D'Avignon is president and chief executive officer of the Business Council of B.C.

Is walking away from Site C really in the best interests of British Columbia's future?

Considering the evidence, including the recent BC Utilities Commission (BCUC) report, we think not. B.C.'s anticipated economic and population growth, and the associated electricity demand as we accelerate into the digital age and a lower-carbon future, leave us no choice but to advance Site C. If we don't, we risk our reputation as a place to invest and will add to the uncertainty that is already hampering business investment in some sectors. We are not alone in this view. Support for Site C has also been expressed by other business groups, many First Nations and some union leaders, including the BC Building Trades Council."

The uncertainty alone of the BC NDP ("the dog ate my homework") of "reviewing" everything is already dampening investment, and therefore job creation. Add to that their myopic and anti-science attack on the TMX which is destroying the slim chances of the NDP in Alberta.

I feel bad for construction workers in BC. They are in for a rough go. That will spin off to suppliers, truckers etc. who all get part of their livelihoods from servicing construction. That spins down to very broad sectors of the economy, and will leave the only vibrant sector as NDP cronies serving on expensive taxpayer funded quangos and "studies".

The BC NDP as usual, have no dang plan, except to fill their personal wallets and their bankrupt party's coffers with taxpayer money.

Unfortunately, the small little ad-hawk group the NDG put together to have a 15 minute presentation to cabinet, I don't believe will have any with logic... I suspect most will push their agenda to have the government buy and sign up a bunch of expensive, to the taxpayer, windy or solar nonsense. As Vaughn Palmer mentioned last week this is "more of an anti Site C group".

This has become a game of whack-a-mole. No sooner has one Site C topic been terminated than the hydroelectric project pops up again on another thread.
