From difficult terrain to pipeline politics, Canada is so close to becoming a global liquefied natural gas player, but faces obstacles

From Darrin Marshall’s viewpoint, a mountain stands in the way of Woodfibre LNG’s goal of shipping liquefied natural gas overseas from Canada’s West Coast.

As FortisBC’s project director for a new pipeline that would feed Woodfibre LNG’s proposed export terminal, he has devised plans to bore through the mountain near Squamish, B.C., about 65 kilometres north of Vancouver.

A critical review of Seth Klein’s ‘A Good War’

I can’t forget those crisp November mornings. I’d stand respectfully still, a Scout’s red sash across my shoulder. I remember the veteran steadying himself with his cane, standing as straight as he still could, crying silently as the “Last Post” rang out.

“How many of you would have fought?” Ms. Allen had asked our class.

Every tiny hand was raised.

The heroism of the Second World War was etched into my memory.

A New Reality Is Being Formed.

The unipolar world is irrevocably becoming a thing of the past, a multipolar one is taking shape.

It was something to behold. Dmitri Medvedev, former Russian President, unrepentant Atlanticist, current deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council, decided to go totally unplugged in an outburst matching the combat star turn of Mr. Khinzal that delivered palpable shock and awe all across NATOstan.

As Canada’s flag-waving government (with no criticisms from their new NDP supporters) cheers for war and plans a HUGE increase in military spending, the real problems of climate disruption, healthcare failings, and shrinking purchasing power (among others)  go unaddressed. This Australian piece lays out a clear description/analysis of what the NATO/Russia/Ukraine tragedy is all about

Last Tuesday, we awoke to news the federal Liberals and NDP had entered into a “supply-and-confidence agreement” (SACA). The agreement would see them collaborate on a shared policy agenda, and so long as the terms of the SACA are honoured, the NDP will pass the Liberals’ next four budgets and support other confidence motions, allowing the Liberals to maintain government until June 2025.
