Reader who goes by the name of Hawgwash left this comment at the earlier article, Subsidies for some, higher fees for others:
I see Vaughn Palmer is actually touching this topic and even with the slightest hint of skepticism. I do though think he left the heavy lifting to you and just may have lightly lifted some of your details.
A start, I guess, but he will likely be spoken to when the treadmill starts up after this holiday Monday.
Having morphed into The Explainer, Palmer once again demonstrates why he should not be called The Dean of the Legislative Press Gallery. Rewriting BC Liberal talking points, he is a pundit who adds a soupçon of skepticism but conveys approved messages.
Without that approach, lucrative speaker assignments would be less available, access to politicians and senior civil servants would become problematic. Palmer would have to work much harder to search for and discover real news.
Respecting LNG, in the face of outright lies and truths shaded to dark, The Explainer’s headline speaks of “downward pressures” on LNG tax revenues.
Get ready taxpayers and citizens, assume the position. No trillions of dollars for the next generation. No bonfires of bonds on a barge. I know that, you know that, Vaughn Palmer knows that. He just won’t write about it.
