"Regurgitating future LNG promises will be heavy on BC Liberals propaganda agenda"

"Regurgitating future LNG promises will be heavy on BC Liberals propaganda agenda"

If anyone thinks that BC`s mainstream media are nothing but bought and sold shills for the BC Liberals think again..

I emailed the Vancouver Sun editor pointing out the fast moving developments in Japan regarding restarting their nuclear facilities, no response back, no mention in their news on this really big British Columbia related story in The Province newspaper either...

I also tweeted the below links to Simi Sara,..Bill Good and emailed these links to CKNW`s newsroom..No mention of any of these Japanese political stories, no word on the implication to BC`s LNG ambitions, not a goddamn word..

The silence is deafening from these so-called news outlets..

On Twitter Ian Bailey tweeted the below link, a story about a heavy BC Liberal agenda at the spring session in our legislature.

There is a comment section there, I tried several times to place the below links in that Global News article, in the comment section, moderator refused to allow links from a story in The Guardian, or link to a story in the Japan Times, ...


Pro-nuclear candidate Yoichi Masuzoe wins Tokyo's race for governor
Former health minister, backed by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, defeats two candidates who promised to end nuclear power
Yoichi Masuzoe, a former health minister backed by Japan's ruling party, won Tokyo's election for governor on Sunday, defeating two candidates who had promised to end nuclear power.
Masuzoe's victory was declared in exit polls on public broadcaster NHK minutes after voting closed. Masuzoe, 65, appeared smiling before cameras and promised to make Tokyo the No 1 city in the world while his supporters shouted "Banzai".

The ballot was widely seen as a test for Japan's public opinion on atomic power in a nation shaken by the Fukushima nuclear disaster. The anti-nuclear camp was divided between two candidates – a former prime minister, Morihiro Hosokawa, and a human rights lawyer, Kenji Utsunomiya.
NHK exit polls gave Masuzoe about 30% of the vote. Hosokawa and Utsunomiya received about 20% each, indicating that if the anti-nuclear vote had been united, a win by either might have been possible. Official vote tallies were not expected until Monday.

Masuzoe was backed by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who wants to restart Japan's 50 nuclear reactors, which were closed after the Fukushima disaster. Hosokawa was backed by the former prime minister, Junichiro Koizumi, who is opposed to use of nuclear power.

And again, no luck placing either of these links in comments under Global BC`s article
Market Disruptor: Nuclear Restarts Spells Trouble for LNG

There are two major factors that have emerged in the last five years that have sparked a surge in LNG investments. First is the shale gas “revolution” in the United States, which allowed the U.S. to vault to the
top spot in the world for natural gas production. This caused prices to crater to below $2 per million Btu (MMBTu) in 2012, down from their 2008 highs above $10/MMBtu. Natural gas became significantly cheaper in the U.S. than nearly everywhere else in the world.  
The second major event that opened the floodgates for investment in new LNG capacity is the Fukushima nuclear crisis in Japan. Already the largest importer of LNG in the world before the triple meltdown in March 2011, Japan had to ratchet up LNG imports to make up for the power shortfall when it shut nearly all of its 49 gigawatts of nuclear capacity. In 2012, Japan accounted for 37% of total global LNG demand.


Christy Clark and the BC Liberals had no plan B...Everything was predicated on a $trillion dollar LNG industry, debt, taxation, hospital funding, education funding, elimination of sales tax and a mythical $100 billion dollar prosperity fund, all predicated on LNG..

There are no final investment decisions, taxation and royalty framework promised for last Fall postponed until the end of the year or later..

Jas Johal had a BC Liberal energy future infomercial on Global TV on Saturday night, The Vancouver Sun, The Province newspaper advertised that Global BC infomercial and CKNW had Jas Johal on air to advertise the infomercial, yet when there is real news on LNG`s future, real bad news for British Columbia they go silent, report nothing and delete comments, polite comments with links to said information, censorship on steroids..

Why are the media shielding this devastating information from the public?

Why indeed, a bought, cowardly, gutless unethical band/gang of stooge journalists, a gang of journalists being served their own seered balls on a platter..

And if anyone thinks I`m overstating this devastating LNG news, think again..


Japan PM Abe hails election of pro-nuclear Tokyo governor

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Monday welcomed the election of a conservative governor of Tokyo in a result analysts say will help boost Abe's economic reform agenda and reinforce his drive to restart Japan's nuclear reactors.....

TOKYO: Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Monday welcomed the election of a conservative governor of Tokyo in a result analysts say will help boost Abe's economic reform agenda and reinforce his drive to restart Japan's nuclear reactors.
Backed by Abe's ruling coalition, Yoichi Masuzoe -- a former television pundit and one-time cabinet minister -- was an easy winner Sunday ahead of 15 rivals, including a former premier campaigning for an end to atomic power.
"It was good to see Mr. Masuzoe elected as he won support of people in Tokyo," Abe told reporters.
"I want him to work hard on various subjects such as low birth rate and longevity as well as economic revitalisation," Abe said. "I want him to make Tokyo a city shining at the centre of the world."...

Masuzoe's win will provide a bounce for Abe and strengthen his hand on nuclear matters, observers say.
Like Abe, he has said that Japan needs to switch its reactors back on. All of them are idled at present amid public nervousness in the aftermath of the crisis at Fukushima.

The governor of Tokyo presides over Japan's most populated and wealthiest prefecture with a population of 13 million. Its annual 13-trillion-yen (US$130 billion) budget rivals that of Sweden and it has 165,000 people on its payroll.
Masuzoe's in-tray will be filled with preparations for the 2020 Olympics, huge construction projects and the renovation of the city's ageing infrastructure already under way.

Why is our BC media not reporting on this..

Christy Clark told the world pre-election that BC will get rich selling LNG to Japan at 5 times the North American rate..

The blathering incoherent one literally told the Japanese people that we in British Columbia were going to lift Japan up by their ankles and shake them down, retire our debt, take advantage of Japan`s tsunami caused nuclear mishap, no contrition, B.C. to get filthy rich on the backs of the Japanese, my gawd, no wonder Shinzo Abe and the Japanese people are restarting their nuclear plants..

With friends like Christy Clark and the BC Liberals who needs enemies.?

Grant, you were the only called this one a long time ago and here we are with so much confirming evidence.

The MSM should stick to drawing cartoons for children's books. That's all that they are good for.

They are like ostriches with their heads in the sand.

I just can't understand it. Why are they not able to pick up on something like this? It's a no-brainer. What is their real agenda?

Here's another story that indicates Japanese power corps. are not planning to come to BC:

"Utility to buy more LNG from Qatar"
(JIJI Press)
FEB 4, 2014

Tohoku Electric Power Co. said Tuesday it will buy more liquefied natural gas from Qatar.

The power company signed a contract to procure 60,000 to 180,000 tons of LNG annually over 15 years from 2016. The LNG is produced by a state-led resources project.

Qatar is the world’s largest LNG supplier. Under a different contract, Tohoku Electric has been buying 520,000 tons per year since 1999.

The planned supply under the new contract stands at 60,000 to 90,000 tons per year between 2016 and 2018 and at 180,000 tons per year between 2019 and 2030.

I'm afraid BC has been taken over by the $indicate.

The mob has come to town.

They've gotten control of the main media corps(e) and the executive pols of both parties. The courts and police also answer to the men in the shadows. And now they're getting busy in extracting every last dime and ramping up the public debt.

They did it by infiltrating the free masonic lodges and enlisting the leading local financiers. They've been glad-handing any doubters with bribery or covertly blackmailing the true hold-outs, while paying off the rest of the bottom feeding hangers-on and other assorted scum.

If the city of Chicago is any sort of example, this kind of criminal reign is going to be very difficult to get rid of in the future, if ever.

No worries Jon Ghun..

What we need is violence, war in the woods, protests outside of Christy Clark`s home..

Democracy is getting very close to people raging in the streets, anarchy, violence, no safe harbours for politicians and corporate leaders..

Eh Janet Holder...

Corporate leaders need to live somewhere, nowhere is safe from an angry public.

Governments are showing us the way, laws, rules and regulations mean nothing to Government and corporations.

Therefor laws, rules and regulations will mean nothing to the public either.

Enbridge approval and building will result in a human wall of resistance, people will die on both sides.

It`s the only way
