Chairman Harper Was Right About Justin Trudeau

The greatest worry about Justin's pre-electoral inexperience was his sympathetic talk about oil pipelines and, for those of us in BC, Premier Christy Clark's aspirations for LNG.

Christy Clark's India Trade Mission Weighed Down By Puzzling Delegates

B.C. Premier Clark is being accompanied to India by the advanced education minister and 72 travelling companions from different economic sectors including education, LNG and the film industry.

A busy, distracted, and somewhat plump populace who, even if they find out about a government program they don't like, won't quite be able to find the time, energy, or solidarity to do battle. In the case of B.C. Premier Christy Clark and her grandiose LNG dream, that's the modus operandi.
