When B.C. Premier Christy Clark outlined her five conditions last month for possibly approving the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline, her demand for a "fair share" of Alberta's petro-royalities brought howls and screams of outrage from east of the Rockies. The media depiction of Clark's conditions as something new is completely inaccurate.
Clark is the perfect stereotype of a career politico. She has shown that just because you can get it elected it doesn't mean you can govern. Clark's latest smoke-and-mirror act -- in which she requested B.C. receive a "fair share" of the Enbridge pipeline proceeds -- hit the national stage with a thud.
