The big smoke screen, better known as L’affaire Branson gave the Chicken Premier Christy Clark something to hide behind as she evaded discussing energy with the Western Premiers.
As you may know by now, Clark sent in her place, her favorite whipping boy Minister Pat Bell.
You may recall Bell as the guy that took the heat for Telus Gate ( the scrapping of the Telus/BC Place stadium name deal) after Clark was not invited to a major jobs announcement.
Yes this is the same Bell that threw $750,000 down the drain on a failed HST pamphlet.
To date now that the Premiers summit has been completed , I have not found one quote from him outlining what he brought to the table on behalf of leaderless BC.
So much for BC Having a voice on this vitally important issue!
Clark as you will recall has failed to take a position on the pipeline issue. Both BC Conservative Leader John Cummins ( for) and BC NDP leader Adrian Dix (against) have shown leadership on this issue.
But then what did you expect from a chicken?
