Alberta pulls plug on B.C./Wine

let's read that one again:

A lot of grain is grown in the Peace region. Much of that area will be flooded by the reservoir for the Site C dam.


Folks, this is an example of the kind of person who is against Site C, and against KM. These people have no integrity, and will say and do anything, and tell any lie they can, to get people on their side. If you have any doubts that you are on the right side, read something like this, and know, the "NO!!! side is going to fail. No house built on this much sand will ever stand.
Remember who is truly to blame for this insanely stupid trade war with Alberta - all of you people who voted for the NDP in the last election. Never let it happen again.

Oh GB, as if KM has so much integrity
In 2011, PHMSA cited Kinder Morgan for these safety violations:

failing to maintain update maps showing pipeline locations,
failing to test pipeline safety devices,
failing to maintain proper firefighting equipment,
failing to inspect its pipelines as required,
failing to adequately monitor pipes’ corrosion levels
and there is a fairly long list
I don't support the pipeline

BAZINGA!


In decent land conditions (not the bottom of a valley like the proposed site c flood land) you can expect to get 2-3 metric tonnes per hectare. The amount of grain needed to finish "grain fed beef" is 15-18 lbs of grain per day for 4 months. This amounts to 1800-2600lbs of grain per head or 1 tonne per head. BC just isn't in the position to change the industry and start finishing cattle, we great at birthing calves, raising them to 600-900lbs then selling them to Alberta because they have the resources and capacities needed to finish them to market.


I'm glad to see we're back on topic now, but I just had to make a suggestion regarding ranching and farming in B.C. Since we seem to buy a fair amount of Australian beef, and since you and others seem to think B.C. ranchers aren't able to 'finish' their cattle here, perhaps they should consider skipping the 'finishing' part and go with grass-fed beef. It's a much healthier product anyway.

I know reading is hard but could you at least try?

Lets be honest, we're all just here to futilely argue with each other and accuse the other side of being ignorant and believing pure nonsense. Its not like we're actually changing each others minds.

Were any of these addressed in the 150+ conditions?

Good question. And I found the link provided by 'CapitalB' most interesting.

The big question is: How will all of this end? Well, it won't end with the Government of Canada and/or the Government of Alberta saying, "Okay, John. You win. We give up." Horgan is using the same strategy that he did with Site C. Give every impression that you're going to cancel the project, ask the BCUC to conduct a review, and then "learn" for the first time that $2 billion would be wasted if the project were killed. Imagine that! Now Horgan will "learn" that pipelines are a federal responsibility. Again, imagine that! What a gong show we have in Victoria!

I like to imagine that he's not necessarily naive about how the laws of government work. What I imagine (keyword because nobody really knows) is that they've put so much effort into catering to a number of separate and conflicting groups of people. That they basically have to play the stupid politics game of even when you know what has to be done you have to pretend to do the thing some people are expecting.

I mean look at all the groups we know they have to cater to;

The green party themselves for obvious reasons.
The green leaning(keyword here, more people lean that way than actually vote that way) swing voters.
The ndp base, which honestly is kind of directionless / many conflicting directions
The liberal leaning swing voters, because they obviously want more seats in the next election so they obviously have to try and poach some of these.

and then theres all the usual business', federal government, intra party what have you.

To a large degree they've kind of painted themselves into a corner, how do you balance so many conflicting interests? By doing a series of stupid looking things and then doing the obvious thing at the end. /slowclap :135:

This is what happens when a halfwit winds up in the Premier's chair.

I knew the NDP would be a disaster, but even I thought it would take a little longer than it has, to get to this level of severity.

I think it will end when an investigation into the contributions from Big Oil and Communist China to the Alberta and Federal governments is completed and made public.
