RAFE MAIR W/THE TRUTH

RAFE HERE  LET’S, AS ALWAYS, BE OUR OWN MEDIA HERE AND PASS THIS ON TO ADDRESS BOOKS AND ASK RECIPIENTS TO DO THE SAME
 
All of you that knew that the Gordon Campbell government was lying through its teeth when it said that the power from wrecking our rivers was for BC consumption, please stand up, open the window that faces Victoria and shout “Gordon Campbell, your government lied to us! You have given away our rivers to big private companies and told us that the energy was to fill our needs in BC.
 
Rafe Mair and Damien Gillis knew you were not telling the truth,  we citizens knew you were prevaricating, and now after the Site “C” announcement the whole world knows it!”
 
Premier Campbell’s decision to go ahead with Site "C" demonstrates what I’ve said all over the province and written for anyone who would print it for nearly three years is absolutely true:-
 
"Run of River, better stated as private power initiatives, will not supply power to British Columbians because they produce their power during the run-off when BC Hydro doesn’t need it!
 
This is the question Premier Campbell must now answer 
 
Now you have admitted that private power will not be for BC consumption but for export, and now that you’ve approved Site "C" to produce power to look after our future needs, will the private rivers policy, which destroys our rivers to supply power to the United States, be ended with no new licenses to be issued?
 
Will BC Hydro continue to be forced by your government to pay private producers double or more what they can sell it for?
 
Will the despoiling of our precious rivers and the ecologies they support continue?
 
A discussion of Site “C” is for another day – today we have it confirmed that all our fears, for which some of us were pilloried by the government and private power boosters (always calling themselves “green”, of course) were demonstrated beyond any doubt, to be true.
 
As a British Columbian who loves his province and all it is, I’m deeply ashamed of our government and I devoutly wish that I had been wrong.
 
But I wasn’t – nor were many of you.
 
But the worst is yet to come.
