BC's new anti-development NDP government is going to try to block the NEB approved KinderMorgan pipeline with lawfare and legal challenges.
BC Premier John Horgan is joining an existing legal challenge to stop the $7.4 billion project, citing environmental, First Nations and tanker traffic concerns
I guess not even Rachel Notley’s pals in the BC NDP and her contemporaries in the environmentalist movement are buying the social license mumbo jumbo she keeps spouting.
"Social license" was Notley’s chief talking point to justify her carbon tax; She told us the carbon tax would make people who really hate us and our oil suddenly like us.
Except it didn’t work, obviously. BC is spending taxpayer money to fight against Alberta’s best interests in court.
While Notley phases out coal as part of her social license scheme, she’s killing thousands of Alberta jobs and a dozen Alberta towns.
She’s making life more expensive for Alberta families with her carbon tax and she's chasing away multinational oilpatch investment.
And in return for these sacrifices to the gods of climate change, we got low flow shower heads, energy efficient light bulbs and a constitutional war with our neighbours to the west.
