So this is what the BC Liberal Government calls their new innovative strategy for success in LNG, praying for god to help frac the bejesus out of British Columbia..

One would think seeing a provincial government pray for success just might set off alarm bells with our mainstream media, apparently not...


The most disturbing happening on the LNG front is the silence of the lambs, deafening silence from Global BC...From the Vancouver Sun, The Province..From news talk radio..CKNW has turned into gibberish radio all day long....

The biggest issue facing British Columbia, that would be the financial promises made on the lead up to and during our provincial election by the BC Liberal government, promises to be met by one industry and one industry only...LNG..

Christy Clark promised eliminating our provincial debt which stands at about $80 billion dollars not counting contractual agreements, giddy with glee Christy was..Pamela Martin was tweeting away about "what would you do with a $trillion dollars"

Christy Clark promised LNG would create a $100 billion dollar prosperity fund ..

Christy Clark promised LNG would eliminate our provincial sales tax..

Christy Clark promised LNG would create over 100,000 jobs..

Every single BC Liberal promise coming from LNG will never accrue....

During the election big media said nothing, Christy Clark lied with impunity "LNG LNG LNG LNG LNG LNG"  the only thing that came out of Clark`s mouth was hot air blathering about LNG, every godamn answer to every single question was met with an LNG response..Childcare.."LNG":.....School/education funding.."LNG".....new hospitals and healthcare funding.."LNG"......longterm housing for seniors..senior`s care beds...."LNG LNG LNG LNG LNG LNG"...

Every godamn answer out of Christy Clark`s mouth was LNG and now that the BC Liberal`s election ploy is falling apart at the seams our media has gone into hiding...if it was the NDP in power our media would be sleeping in MLA`s backyards, demanding answers and even reporting...

Our big daily papers and TV stations have not reported that Uranium prices have soared on news of Japan`s nuclear restart...Thus making Japan`s LNG needs fall away in short order...

No reporting of another huge deal signed between China and Russia, a second massive natural gas pipeline delivering Russian gas to China..

No reporting of China`s own domestic fraccing growing by leaps and bounds, amazing even the most skeptical of energy experts..

Western Australia where most of the Aussie LNG plants are.... Their debt in 2008 was $3 billion, in a mere 5 years Western Australia`s debt has risen to $30 billion..! How`s that LNG thingy working out for them..

No reporting on the present LNG situation...There is way more supply than demand with gobs and gobs of more supply coming online, ..LNG Plants actually under construction...Our media just sits back and refuses to cut through the garbage, a phoney greenhouse gas bill, a child could disassemble that joke of a bill...

Taxation legislation, provisions for tax changes in 2037....oh sure, like 33% legislated greenhouse gas reductions from 2007 levels by 2020....These joker bills should be laughed right(write) off their editor`s desk...No, our trained puppy dog media just laps it up...

There has been many thorough reports on these facts, facts the Straight Goods has reported for years on..Check out my right side-bar...a dozen plus articles in the LNG Files section...All laid out for the world to see...But no, our media is deliberately deaf, dumb and blind....

 For some strange beholden to the corporation reason our major news outlet`s pens and cameras have gone silent on the topic of LNG...

Not one critical story, only cheerleading stories spun out of context...

Here are some great articles..links below..

Everything the BC Liberals promised would accrue through LNG is gone, off the table..Even if a big energy giant proceeds with a British Columbia build...These plants will be built in South Korea and barged here, thus keeping BC businesses out of the financial loop.....

There is no one doing any substantial reporting on this topic except The Straight Goods and Norman Farrell...

Our corporation controlled media is changing the message on LNG..no longer do they discuss any of the BC Liberal promised benefits coming to the people, now the wink nod double shuffling media is playing the any build regardless of benefits is good card..

They are so pathetic, Keith Baldrey is putrid, Vaughn Palmer is intellectually lazy....British Columbia Government is willing to write off every provincial tax for a final investment decision and our elected Government is actively lobbying Ottawa to allow complete write-offs of all build costs...That`s why Western Australia is literally going "down Under"

PETRONAS and LNG Canada(Shell)..Between these 2 outfits we are talking about writing off $60 to $70 billion dollars before we see any money coming to Government...20 years out before we see anything, chances are we`ll never see a dime...

These LNG liquefaction plants employ a mere 200 full time employees, Christy Clark, Rich Coleman and Mike De Jong have told so many provable lies on this LNG file the RCMP should be called in to arrest them...

Unfortunately our provincial NDP opposition doesn`t have the balls or courage to call press conferences and call these BC Liberal thieves out....Fear of what labels our corporate media whores will attach to the NDP.....So rather than stand up for British Columbia our loyal opposition will ride shot-gun on this dead horse..

Our media has a duty to accurately report to the public, their duty is not to be cheerleaders for the corporations but unfortunately that`s what has happened, big media sold their souls years ago, young people today have grown up in an era where they haven`t seen one honest newscast, wouldn`t know what a honest newscast looks or sounds like..

"We have seen the enemy" ......And they are the Vancouver Sun...The Province..Global BC news..CTV news ... CKNW and Corus radio as a whole...

Time to protest, rally and march against the biggest enemy of them all....

A Gutless, Cowardice, Beholden to only the corporation media.....Burn their papers...Cut that cablevision, stop tuning in ....Throw your bi-weekly news leaders on the ground....

Only then will they get the message..

What about? Nexen buying 800 hectares at Grassy Point for a LNG plant? Is that still on? I had thought I read, ditzy Christy approved this?

Money managers would always tell you to never put all your eggs in one basket. So much for sound money management as the debt hits a whopping $80 Billion. Excellent but sad story, but the voters are to blame for giving her another 4 year mandate. Voters did have a choice and they chose Clark.
