Oct 18, 2018 - Highly concentrated corporate ownership of Canada's energy sector and lack of government influence mean there's very little incentive for the fossil fuel industry to pay attention to the dangers of global climate change or worry about the communities and workers that depend on it.

Oct 2, 2018: VICTORIA — Premier John Horgan says his government is mulling ways to implement all of the taxes and relief for the LNG Canada project without a vote in the legislature, a scenario that would avoid a showdown with the NDP’s power-sharing partners the B.C. Green party.

Horgan told Postmedia News on Wednesday that one tax break most observers thought would need legislation – repealing the previous Liberal government’s 3.5 per cent LNG income tax – can potentially just be avoided entirely.

To The Editor:

While Prime Minister Trudeau and BC Premier Horgan are proudly congratulating themselves on building the Canadian economy with the announcement of a multibillion dollar LNG plant, the rest of us are wondering what the hell is going on here.

These two climate warrior leaders are celebrating plans for a massive carbon bomb that will make it impossible to meet greenhouse gas reduction targets.  It will ensure Canada continues as a climate fossil dinosaur in world opinion.
