Will BC’s by-elections and energy projects lead to prosperity or protests?

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

News from British Columbia brings us developments on two energy projects and the announcement of two by-elections.

The deadline for the Federal government’s decision on the proposed Trans Mountain pipeline by Kinder Morgan is coming up. The other project is $8.3B dollar Site C dam project by B.C. Hydro.

In addition to this excitement, the government has called two by-elections, one in the NDP stronghold of Vancouver-Mount Pleasant and one that could be a closer race in Coquitlam-Burke Mountain.

Will B.C. go down the path of the harmful Alberta Notley NDP or the forward thinking Brad Wall Saskatchewan Party?

Stay tuned as I continue to cover developments in British Columbia.

Hugh Mackay, don’t forget tough Harperite, and former Alberta MLA & Minister Stockwell Day supported Christy Clark at BC’s last provincial election, as did Chuck Sthral and other prominent Harper Conservatives. Harper caused Christy to get elected, and this is the cost that he and the CPC must pay! BC doesn’t want any poison from Alberta on our shores! Alberta is a hell-hole and deserves to fall for all the wrong it has done!

Albertans should face massive consequences for being so far to the right politically. A tax of 150% could easily be levelled against the coal and petroleum industries. Notley could treat the rural populations like Stalin treated the Ukrainians in the 1920s & 30s!

So here is the link to Mary Polaks press conference today worth a listen – lots of support
Sounds like its not over ! Kinder Morgan has to work harder and come up
with a better plan in 2 areas. So seems to me that Mary is a bit of PIT BULL
and she intends to carry this project across the goal line but she has to
dodge the environmental nuts plus Change.org, the Dogwood guys, dead Suzuki,
left wing Vancouver and Burnaby mayors and more – so she has to have a bullet proof project !
If you are from BC email or call your MLA, Mary Polak (Minister of Environment)
We need to show the world we can do environmentally sound projects, that we are still in
business in spite of Trudeau and Butts, and we need to help Alberta !
Remember Adrian Dix NDP ex leader, during the last election he changed his position
on the Kinder Morgan expansion to no – that changed the election – the NDP was nearly
wiped out. Lets help make this project happen.
Christopher – listen to the link and where are the protests you mention I will carry a pro sign

@ Robert Hewgill and Fred Albertan – I agree that Alberta has no place in the Confederation, but we have to eject this NDP government first.

It is time to leave confederation. No future with Turdeau and Eastern domination of Canada.

Christopher: You called BC politics “whacky”?

I’ll take “whacky” over 3rd world corruption, cronyism and crimes being covered up by our government in Ontario.

Sadly, todays announcement confirms that the BC libs are in lock step with the feds….bleak days head for BC and Canada

Fred Albertan commented 25 mins ago
Alberta has no future in confederation.

That’s 100% correct.

I shot this video before today’s announcement the BC government will oppose the Kinder Morgan expansion. Personally, this is very disappointing to hear. For a province so desperate for investment from the Oil and Gas industry for LNG, this is a terrible signal that we are not open for business. Also this stinks as nothing but partisan politics leading up to the aforementioned by-elections and the 2017 BC Provincial election.

The Globe and Mail has an article that says BC will oppose the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion. We had clrawling cowardly garbage for Alberta MLA’s and we have have traitorous Marxist scum for MLA’s. This is essential an act of war against Alberta. To bad we have nothing but crawling cowardly garbage for government so that the proper response can’t be acted on.
