a letter to mrs notley. you seem to think that it should be as easy to put a pipeline in bc as it is in alberta. well answer these questions please. do they have landslides in alberta. do they have earthquakes in alberta. do they have 25000 miles of tidal coast line in alberta. do they have 20 foot tides twice a day in alberta. do they have endagered orcas in alberta. do they have one of the highest coastal boat traffic areas in alberta. do they have tidal waves in alberta. if you still believe that it should be as simple as alberta then maybe you should run for politics in bc instead of alberta....... good luck you will need it and maybe the rest of alberta should move to texas, a bcer obviously. i guess she forgot about all of this.......

And I guess you forgot that BC already has a pipeline running from Alberta to the BC coast. The KM pipeline is a twinning of an already existing pipeline. So, if all those obstacles you point to have already been overcome, what's the problem?

You realize if Premier Notley changes her mind on getting Alberta’s oil to tidewater off BC, you’ll be writing a new letter to her big hat ‘Texas’ style replacement.

“Jason Kenney’s ‘energy war room’ is ham-fisted attempt at Trump-style populism”

http://energi.news/markham-on-energy/ja ... -populism/

And maybe some of those 'bcers' might try moving to 'texas' to make a stand to defend the Alamo, er, the Gulf of Mexico. Shouldn't have to siphon off too many with only 300 miles of coastline there.

BTW, how’s the BC by-election going?

Another choice opinion on what Horgan and those who’ve criticized Notely may have brought on for BC.

Braid: B.C.'s Horgan now faces the trouble he made for Alberta

https://calgaryherald.com/news/politics ... or-alberta

If Jason Kenney’s UCP wins Alberta’s spring election, he’ll crank up the alliances he’s been building with Doug Ford in Ontario, Brian Pallister in Manitoba and Scott Moe in Saskatchewan.

Horgan will quickly be Canada’s most isolated premier, both geographically and politically.

And he’ll have brought it on himself with hostile moves that diminished Rachel Notley and the Alberta NDP in the eyes of voters.

I know, us poor Albertans . . .. :cry:

We’re NDP and you’re NDP (still today), but you want to hang out with cool friends like ‘Washington’ and ‘California,’ :sunshine: and we think we’re ‘unique,’ but others in the family just don’t see how we’re so ‘special.’ :kick:

:cry:

A sense of resentment': Most Canadians feel disrespected by other provinces, poll shows

http://nationalpost.com/news/canada/a-s ... poll-shows

. . . in British Columbia, 57 per cent feel they’re respected . . .. The most disrespected feeling province is Alberta, landing at 74 per cent. Shachi Kurl, the executive director of the Angus Reid Institute, said this is part of the larger notion of the West not having a strong sense of how it fits within Canada. . . .

I think Notley is secretly hoping that the NEB doesn't release its report until after the AB provincial election. There's no way CAPP and the AB government can guarantee the protection of BC's coastal environment from a dilbit spill, and that's what this all boils down to.

Today's Alberta is a result of over 40yrs of Conservative governments, i don't think they're done owning that.

35:45 Coverage from Alberta—some for Catcusflower who continues to bash Notley, but has no idea that if she's defeated what could be waiting in the wings for BC and the environmentalists—and a conversation with Jason Kenny that might provide a clue.

37:30 Kenny, “We’ve gone through the longest period of economic decline and stagnation, at least since the 1930s . . ..” :smt045 oh yeah, four years of Rachel who got the closest to reversing the decline, and now it could be back to the Conservatives so they can take over the 'normal' from where they left it off :up:

And then he gets all scrambled up about who was politically in charge and when in Alberta and Ottawa when it comes to the recent pipeline projects.

But Rachel gets a chance to bring him around at 42:16

^^Just to set the record straight, I do NOT continue to bash Notley, and I DO know all about Kenney and his UCP. Let me be clear on this; Choosing Kenney in an election over Notley is like choosing Cancer over Chicken Pox.

Notley was elected to work for the majority of Albertans. I get that. It's just unfortunate that the majority of Albertans work for the oil and gas industry and related services. I've met Albertans who are ashamed of Big Oil's supporters, people who, like most British Columbians are concerned about the environment and the role the oil and gas industry plays in climate change.

Notley was raised by respected NDP politician. I don't know how she sleeps at night knowing how disappointed her father would be in her if he knew how she has turned into "Kenney-lite".

What a unique assumption you've imagined.

So that's not bashing Notley?

You damn near have me I tears right now--no *bleep*.

Grant's death gutted us here. And I have a connection with the family and can't tell you how proud he would be of Rachel.

But I'll try to remain civil with you.

Quick question: So if the BC Greens gained power there how would they manage the forest industry?

And then, maybe we should get to know one another online here. Okay?

Still waiting for Cactusflower on a personal level, but I'll put this up.

Sorry to intrude on the 'hot topics.'

I’m still hoping to hear a yes or no from Catusflower regarding my personal invitation above.

But, for now, a reminder to me from Rachel in the video: “Thank you BC pipeline supporters.”

The numbers continue to grow, and we sincerely appreciate that.
