Northern Gateway Pot Pourri

Two new polls shows overwhelming opposition to Northern Gateway in B.C.  One of them suggests that a good portion of BCers are willing to negotiate a better deal with Alberta and the feds; the other suggests that Christy Clark's new harder line against the pipeline hasn't helped her electorally.  So, apparently, she has turned to God.  Meanwhile, senior BC Conservative cabinet minister James Moore has gone rogue, or maybe been cleared to express a dissenting opinion.  He says is all down to Enbridge, so if the project goes TU you know who the Tories plan to blame.  Meanwhile, Ft St James says no thanks; that's six B.C. communities  that have decided to take a stand against the pipeline.

So there you have it.

The Chinese, who now or soon will own 20% of the oil patch must have an opinion on this.

Actually most of the people in Toronto do not have to take up residences in the suburbs unlike the other north American cities because of the thick foliage, shadowy trees and a thriving spirited atmosphere that turn the downtown neighborhoods into attractive abodes throbbing with vitality and life.
