    Especially in light of the last one that happened just a few days ago.

    In regards to royalties, BC still wouldn't be due any of the royalties that Alberta is getting from Enbridge, which is what Premier Clark wants.  Clark has basically asked Alberta to give BC money in exchange for taking on that spill risk, which is unprecedented in Canadian federalism.

    The correct thing to do, as outlined by pretty much everyone involved in the issue up here, is for BC to take up the issue with Enbridge itself and to tax the corporation in order to recupe that money.  Not to attempt to basically tax a fellow province.

    My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world. We still miss you Jack, we'll make you proud.
