An ArmchairMayor.ca editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
SOME WOULD CALL what’s going on between B.C. and Alberta brinkmanship. Some would call it the politics of confrontation.
I’d call it playing silly buggers.
First, B.C. gives notice it wants to put a hold on increases to pipeline bitumen until it can do more study on spill responses. Alberta gets mad.
John pushes Rachel, Rachel pushes John, and tempers flare.
Rachel bans B.C. wine from Alberta.
Can anyone tell me what a black, sludgy, sticky mixture of hydrocarbons has to do with a nice glass of Chardonnay?
I think I know who gets the better deal on that exchange.
