Romania paid off its debt in the 1980s. The Grand Conducator was thanked for this with a hail of bullets.

Grabbing at straws I say. Where did all this debt come from anyway Crunchy Clark. You and Gordon told us everything was fine.

There are no conditions to be met for the Northern Gateway. None. It will be opposed.

Clark knows that the LNG plants can't go ahead without the site C dam. The site C dam is needed for no other reason than to power LNG plants. The site C dam will cost a minimum of 8 billion dollars and destroy excellent farmland. The fracking will destroy massive amounts of our clean groundwater and the US and other countries have gone into fracking in a big way as well, creating a glut of natural gas. The prices for natural gas have been lowered by the glut, making this huge taxpayer expense an economic gamble.

I doubt that we will see one penny of revenue over the losses the BC Liberals have set us up for with IPP's and BC Hydro. I'm sure there will indeed be lots of money moving around over the next few years but I doubt it will benefit BC taxpayers.

Fortunately the Clark regime is on its way out.

It will not matter, their contracts will last for the most part of forty years. Your kids will continue to pay for Campbell and the New Cons.

Just another page in the saga of follies of Canada's Big 4 provinces.

'...LNG is natural gas that is cooled to a liquid form where it can then be loaded onto tankers....'

And who will be paying for the extraordinary amounts of electrical power required to liquify natural gas? That would include transmission lines, power sources such as dams, etc.? Can we see some figures on those as-yet nonexistent requirements?
And is it not true that taxpayers are essentially going to fund massive projects in electrical production in order to sell LNG to Asia to run power plants to make - electricity? If not taxpayers, then who? Why do some people get the impression that BC taxpayers are going to be subsidizing the Asian power market? Some clarification would be nice, rather than more vague trillion-dollar pie-in-the-sky stories of the 'natural gas' variety so typical of the Liberals.

Kitimat already has a power source used for the aluminum mining.

There is no aluminum mining within a thousand miles of Kitimat.

The Aluminum refining, not mining. Big difference.

Not a BC plan to pay off debt at all ..it's a Clark plan to tie the hands of the NDP regarding fracking and LNG profits. Our resources mortgaged for years in the future.
