Liberals WRONG on more than Linda being an NDP plant

Post by BeingHuman »

Making its rounds today on main stream media is the BC Liberals admitting they were WRONG about Linda Higgins being an NDP plant. This is not the first time the BC Liberals had to "eat crow" when it comes to falsely laying blame at the NDP's feet. Anyone remember Christy Clark's accusations about the BC NDP being behind the hacking of the BC Liberal Party website? Christy and her Liberals ended up being wrong then as well. So what does eating so much crow taste like?

Let's see what's more important here . . . Linda . . . or BC having the strongest economy in Canada, some of the best health outcomes in the country, and amongst the best education outcomes in the world. For some it's Linda, hating Christy Clark, and fighting the campaign on the low road. The low road campaign may work but I hope not. We'll find out next Tuesday.

Here is what is important about all of this; the BC Liberals are demonstrating to the public that they are willing to take positions and make accusations based on NO FACTS or EVIDENCE what-so-ever. Now... is that the kind of government decision making and action we should be looking for in a responsible government?

As I stated earlier on another thread, Urbane, if you tell a lie often enough and long enough, someone is going to believe you. The 'someone' in this case are the same 3 or 4 BC Liberal supporters on this forum. Everyone else knows better. They can read the information on Stats Canada.

Funny how whenever a BCLLD gets caught by the truth and doesn't have a response they go on autopilot and resort back to this nonsense.. This is their only argument and even though it's not true they just keep saying it over and over, hoping we will get brainwashed into believing it like they were by Christy and her non-stop JOBS, chant..

If you believe ANYTHING that comes out of Christy Clarks mouth, you might be a Liberal.

It is not just about the BC Liberals being wrong in their accusations about the BC NDP, in a very public manner, these BC Liberals are constantly getting things WRONG about all kinds of things.

Example: During last week's BC leadership debate, Christy Clark repeatedly claimed BC has the "lowest middle class taxes in the country." WRONG!!!

One small problem: Clark's own budget documents show BC's middle class families actually pay more taxes than several other Canadian provinces, including Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Quebec.

Christy Clark WRONGLY claimed BC "has more than an estimated 2,900 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of marketable shale gas reserves" – that's more methane than the entire United States. Turns out BC's marketable shale gas reserves was only 480 trillion cubic feet (tcf) just one sixth of what she claimed.

Huh, what is the difference between;
A) not knowing what you are talking about;
B) being wrong;
C) or lying?

If you really want to know, ask a BC Liberal. [icon_lol2.gif]

Abundant natural gas resources
British Columbia's natural gas resources are estimated at over 2,900 trillion cubic feet of gas-in-place. To put it in perspective, each year industry extracts about 4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. Based on the amount of gas industry is able to recover and increased activity, British Columbia has over 150 years worth of natural gas supply. And, new discoveries are being made all the time.

So who fed you the 480 trillion number? The Tyee? The CCPA? One of those lunatic NDP bloggers that you guys love so much?

The numbers come from the BC Oil and Gas Commission... do you have a problem with that?

The BC Oil and Gas Commission estimates BC’s raw gas reserves at 42.3 tcf, with a total “marketable resource” of 442 tcf. (Reserves have been proven through drilling or are close to drilled areas, and are considered recoverable with current technology and economic conditions. Resources are much less certain, as they are probabilistic estimates based on broad extrapolations with limited drilling.)

The BC government has publicly stated that marketable resources are six times higher than the Commission’s estimate: 2,900 tcf available for export. This is not a credible claim.

^^ Gas reserve estimates have increased. From your source:

As of Dec. 31, 2015, the province’s remaining raw gas
reserves were 1,504.7 109
m3
, a 4.2 per cent increase over
2014 remaining reserves. The upward trend in reserve
revisions continues due to the successful development of
unconventional gas outpacing production reserve depletion.


From a CBC article:

A new report from the B.C. government claims the province's natural gas reserves are more than double the size of previous estimates.

The new estimate is based on analysis of the Montney Formation, which spans northeast B.C. south of Fort Nelson into the Fort St. John area and across the border into Alberta.

B.C.'s total natural gas reserves are estimated at 2,933 trillion cubic feet — enough to support development and LNG export operations for more than 150 years, according to a statement issued by the Minister of Natural Gas Development Rich Coleman.

But according to the study, an estimate of 1,965 trillion cubic feet of available gas, often referred to as gas-in-place or GIP, is the most realistic scenario of available reserves in British Columbia

The study, The Ultimate Potential for Unconventional Petroleum from the Montney Formation of British Columbia and Alberta, was a joint effort by Canada's National Energy Board, British Columbia's Ministry of Natural Gas Development, the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission, and the Alberta Energy Regulator.

Yes, because they are wrong, and you are deliberately using wrong numbers. *removed*

Sorry, I am not the one claiming BC has more natural gas than the entire continental United States... that's just silly! Actually it's quite laughable! [icon_lol2.gif]

I trust my sources, and the BC Oil and Gas Commission seems like a CREDIBLE source over all others to me.

Now where was I before I was so rudely interrupted? Oh, yes, things that the BC Liberal government has been WRONG about.

When the BC Liberal government introduced a plan to make it easier for first-time home buyers to enter the housing market by using public funds to assist with down payments of up to $37,500. Clark suggested that because "the market was incredibly overheated" and "distorted," this policy may have "helped slow that down," adding "that's good." WRONG!!!

If that was Clark's goal, experts have widely panned the plan, with some experts suggesting it will "add fuel to BC's hottest housing market."
