No other than the biggest phony in the Green movement Marc Jaccard, Jaccard was sent in by Gordon Campbell to engage in damage control, and as usual Marc Jaccard was deceptive and downright dishonest, I was wondering when Jackass Jaccard was going to show up, I am no fan of the Vancouver Sun but.......
The other day there was an opinion/editorial piece posted in the Vancouver Sun, there was no name attached to the article but it was a good piece, the article was slamming the Campbell Government for gutting the BCUC.......So a day after the article out slithers Marc Jaccard from under his rock to lie and obfuscate and defend the gutting of the BCUC.....Jaccard today said.....The BCUC will still have authority to approve projects, Jaccard also said.... The BCUC will be able to protect the rate payer........
Jaccard said many things today, or should I say Marc Jaccard lied his face off today, Jaccard talked about having to reduce emmissions and he mentioned over and over again "The tiny micro private power projects" in referring to the IPPs..........Jaccard was trying to implant a picture of a tiny windmill or a little turbine that gets plunked into a river.
Let`s start with the editorial in the Vancouver Sun and what they had to say about the gutting of the BCUC....
"The new legislation goes too far when it excludes new energy projects from the scrutiny of the commission"
and this...."The commission is now left with only the job of approving rates based on factors over which it no longer has any control."
The editorial said further....."Since many of the energy purchase agreements between BC Hydro and private energy companies are being kept secret, without the scrutiny of the BCUC we will no longer have any independent oversight" and lastly.....
"The clean energy act also calls for yet another energy plan, this one to be prepared by BC Hydro, that will not be overseen by the utilities commission"
(you can read the whole editorial here)http://www.vancouversun.com/technology/Public+interest+served+limiting+utilities+regulator/3021946/story.html
So one by one Gordon Campbell`s allies are abandoning the BC Liberals, after the scathing rebuke by the Vancouver Sun Gordon Campbell sends out one of the slimiest fake environmentalists who ever walked on earth.....Marc Jaccard, like I said Jackass Jaccard was defending gutting the BCUC, he didn`t say why, he didn`t mention any of the above items, Jaccard merely mentioned that the BCUC has as much power now as it ever had.....What planet do you live on Jaccard?
Look friends, this is the same Marc Jaccard who claimed that the carbon tax was great, claimed the carbon tax would reduce emmissions, and when the carbon tax failed and hundreds of thousands of more cars have been registered to drive in BC the same Jackass Jaccard said....."The carbon tax needs to rise 20 to 30 fold to be effective"......This idiot has an excuse for everyone of his failed teachings!
Still with the Jackass, just before the last election began when the NDP came out with a plan to tax the Natural gas industry to force them to stop flaring and polluting Marc Jaccard came out with a phony paper claiming if we taxed the natural gas industry for flaring it would cost 61,000 jobs....Marc Jaccard you are an idiot, you advocate punishing consumers who have no option but to drive their cars all in the name of reducing emissions but when the NDP wanted to target the Natural gas sector that has skyrocketing emissions with a flaring tax, you Marc Jaccard write a phony paper claiming job losses if we dare challenge the Oil n Gas sector to clean up their act! You are nothing but a paid shill!
Marc Jaccard now admits that the carbon tax is useless in its present form, and now Jackass is defending gutting the BCUC, where is your voice on the Enbridge pipeline?
(For a good read on the phony Marc Jaccard read this) http://powellriverpersuader.blogspot.com/2009/09/marc-jaccards-advice-to-bc-burn-baby.html
So isn`t that funny, the carbon tax has now been totally debunked as a useful tool to reduce emissions, yet charging for gas flaring has been proven to be effective yet Jaccard advocated leaving the big polluters alone!
Here is the link to Jaccard`s April/2009 PDF report about job losses if we dare try and clamp down on gas flaring. http://www.sfu.ca/pamr/files/spring2009/BC_NDP_Climate_Policy_Apr_10-2009/pdf
Don`t bother clicking the above link, like I said in the past, the Jaccard report on gas flaring and job losses was a hasty bit of gibberish, no research, innuendo with no basis for its claim, in fact Marc Jaccard is obviously ashamed of his pre-election paper/Campbell endorsement,for some strange reason the PDF has been purged from the internet, Marc Jaccard`s phony paper defending gas flaring has been vaporized, hmm! What are you afraid of Jaccard? Are you afraid your peers will laugh at you for endorsing gas flaring?
Anyway folks, Marc Jackass Jaccard was summoned to defend gutting the BCUC, you can hear his interview with Christy(crusty)Clark here.....Cue-up May 17 ..1:30 PM http://www.cknw.com/other/audiovault.html
And again folks, Jaccard referred to all the IPPs as tiny, micro, in fact halfway through the interview when Christy asked Jaccard about site C and whether or not it`s green, Jaccard said....."Would you rather have a thousand 1 mega watt IPPs or a site C"
Well Mr. Jaccard, I don`t know of any 1 mega watt projects, perhaps you could point one out to me, and perhaps you can talk about how tiny the Ashlu IPP is, or how benign and the Toba and Bute inlet IPPs are....Perhaps you can talk about the thousands of miles of access roads, thousands of miles of transmission lines, the hundreds of miles of water diversions, perhaps you can talk about fish being chopped up in turbines......
I believe Marc Jaccard should be forced to return all monies collected from teaching students, the man is not ethical, one more thing, Jaccard mentioned how Tzeporah Berman is in favour of IPPs, he mentioned how Tzeporah is now working for Greenpeace and how she is now based in Amsterdam.....
Jaccard again reiterated getting off of fossil fuels and electrifying everything, but that doesn`t explain his stance on gas flaring, that doesn`t explain his silence on the Enbridge pipeline and or offshore Oil n Gas drilling here in BC....And of course Christy Clark didn`t bother asking, could you imagine folks, a person claiming to be an environmentalist and he is on the air during the biggest oil disaster ever in US history and Jaccard doesn`t mention it once, or Enbridge....
You Marc Jaccard are not fit to teach, you are not honest, you don`t believe in your election slam paper you made up out of whole cloth, that`s why you purged it from cyberspace.....You Marc Jaccard are worse than Gordon Campbell, you are nothing but a paid stooge hiding behind a degree and a green veil!
