SITE C

 

 

 

The evidence based UBC Report said:

 

We came to the conclusion, looking over 10 different scenarios, that it makes the most economic sense to suspend or cancel Site C while the project is referred to the BC Utilities Commission.”

 “Our analysis indicates that cancelling the Site C project as   of June 30, 2017, would save between $500-million and $1.65-billion, depending on future conditions"

Just days after President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the Paris climate agreement and with the testimony of fired FBI director James Comey scheduled for next week, U.S. citizens gathered for protests in cities nationwide on Saturday to denounce the president's penchant for lying, obscuring facts, and promoting alternative realities.

By Emma Gilchrist • Thursday, June 1, 2017 - 

B.C.Leader John Horgan has written to B.C.HYDRO CEO Jessica McDonald to urge the crown corporation not to finalize any contracts or evict any residents to make way for the Site C dam until a new government is in place.

“I note that the majority of British Columbians who voted in this election voted for parties that want to see the Site C project reviewed or stopped,” Horgan wrote to McDonald.

Press release: June 1, 2017

An international prohibition on the financing of nuclear weapons could help reverse the nuclear arms race and be a powerful tool in delegitimizing nuclear weapons, according to nuclear disarmament campaigners participating in  UN negotiations on a treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons.

Hundreds of activists rally to finish a 75 kilometre march at the gates of Kinder Morgan during an Anti-Pipeline walk in Burnaby on Sunday.

Emotions ran high at the Walk 4 the Salish Sea, the culmination of an indigenous-led four-day, 75-kilometre walk to protest the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion on Sunday.

At the Kinder Morgan terminus gate in Burnaby, Cedar Parker-George of the Tsleil-Waututh First Nations called out Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whose government gave the project the green light in November of 2016, saying the people will remember that he backed the project. “This will not go through,” he said to cheers and drumming. “It will not happen, Justin.”

This is wonderful news for the citizens of British Columbia

 

 Last night I gave  the following presentation on a panel:

 

I have done a content analysis of the platforms of the NDP and the Green Party

First, I would like to discuss five key issues; proportional representation, electoral finance reform, party status, Kinder Morgan and Site C; then I will refer to other core elements in the platform.

San Onofre nuclear plant is adjacent to one of the most visited beaches in Southern California. Plans are afoot to store nuclear waste at this facility.

Nuclear storage plan at San Onofre beach leaves out tribal voices

Dina Gilio-Whitaker

 

A controversial plan to temporarily store more than three million pounds of spent nuclear fuel 100 feet from one of Southern California’s most popular beaches, San Onofre, is meeting with fierce resistance from local communities, including tribal members. The problem for the Native population is that while the formal decision-making process systematically involved a wide variety of stakeholders including local and state governments, community groups, environmentalists, academics, military, and business, education, and labor leaders, tribal governments were excluded.

The Washington Post reported that President Trump released classified info to the Russians that could be used to compromise American intelligence resources.

President Trump seems to be on the ropes and it is only round one.   Please, someone throw in the towel.  This guy is getting beaten to a pulp.  He is out of his depth and over his head.   His ego will will push him into truly dangerous waters.   Now he is off to play nuclear war...watch out!

The Great Race E-mail

There is a great race going on in American Politics..    Can President Trump remove all the checks and balances to the point where the President controls everything and the US becomes a Putin like oligarchy?  Can he do this before those checks and balances impeach him?   That is the Great Race.  That is the real game plan.  All the rest is a distraction and a probe by Trump to find out who will back him and who he needs to get rid of to become King.

Impeachable - The Money Laundering Card E-mail

The investigation into Trump and Russia took a turn when Trump fired the Director of the FBI for investigating possible collusion to fix the election he won.  They may have him on interfering and coverup.   This is reinforced by Trumps own admission that he thought the investigation was an attempt by the Democrates to change the election results.  So by his own admission his reason for firing Comey had to do at least in part because of the Trump Russia investigation.  That is definately an attempt to derail the FBI investigation into himself.

If Trump was involved in helping the Russians launder money then that is another way he could be impeached.  It seems to me that the FBI, The congressional Committee, the Senate or the CIA could subpoena Donald Trump's tax returns.  This would be a very inexpensive and sure fire way to find out who paid who for what and when.  It will show which foreign governments have him by the blank and reveal whether or not he broke the law in his business dealings.
