A message sent to various people in the public arena, by reader and citizen commentator “Salal” and republished here with permission:
Liberals. Uncanny how they remain true to form.
Here in Victoria they were brought in to move the sewage treatment system procurement forward. The threat of provincial and federal grants being withdrawn hurried Victoria CRD directors along.
Of note, so did the fact that the BC Liberal government insisted they not be allowed to entertain other more environmentally sound and less expensive systems.
Seems Ms. Clark has a list of eligible corporate sponsors for contract dispersals. As of yet they’re not into greener systems so Clark is prevented from choosing the greener way…
That decision is so reminiscent of the Site C Panel situation. The panel led by Mr. Swain had their hands tied by Liberal Mines and Energy Minister Bill Bennett who ordered them not to consider other more cost-effective and environmentally friendly hydro generation systems.
I suppose the BC Liberals could use a Don Cherryism, “You’ve gotta go with those who brung ya.”
You have to stand by those who have made themselves an integral component in your BC Liberal career.
The above comments are my opinions and heartfelt.
