The Periodic Table tells us water and oil don’t really like each other. Much like what we are witnessing in today’s Hatfield-McCoy like feud between the BC and Alberta governments. West Coast (First Nations) Environmentalists versus the prairie Crude Oil Industrialists… Eco-Protectionist’s versus the (Canadian) Alberta Oil Economy.
Now with the Federal Court “enforcing its own blockade” on the Trans Mountain Pipeline, AB Premiere Rachel Notely is going to pick up her marbles and walk away from the National Climate Plan. #FoodFightPolitics
I wonder if our presumptuous Prime Minister experienced any recurring nightmares over this Labour Day Weekend; further comatized by US NAFTA talks slippin’ & slidin’ away.
First and foremost THANK YOU Premier Horgan for wanting to do nothing with Metro’s mobility pricing! A bombastic “unaffordable” yellow brick toll road from our many “retiring” Metro mayors. Robert Shaw’s report speaks volumes as to why this is a nonstarter from a ‘no more tolls’ NDP government warring front. And the irony as in at odds in all this is our “NDP” MLA Ma is an advocate for Metro mobility pricing… hmm.
Meanwhile… Monday Night’s City Council Fight Card was over before the strike of seven, with our infamous mayor a no-show. And to every medicinal cannabis user’s angst the third reading regarding bylaws prohibiting non-medicinal Cannabis Production and Sales in the City was passed 5 to 1 with interim mayor Rod Clark inhaling…
Does this mean our city’s “medicinal cannabis dispensaries” which are emphatically “not selling non-medicinal cannabis” are by way of our prescribed amended bylaws not breaking any city bylaws and a city business license should therefore be entitled to our cannabis outlets?
“According to and In their own words”…
CANNABIS REGULATION: ZONING AND BUSINESS LICENSE BYLAW AMENDMENTS third reading of the following bylaws to prohibit non-medicinal Cannabis Production and Sales in the City be considered:
“Zoning Bylaw, 1995, No. 6700, Amendment Bylaw, 2018, No. 8609” (A Bylaw to Regulate Cannabis) and,
“Business License Bylaw, 2004, No. 7584, Amendment Bylaw, 2018, No. 8616” (A Bylaw to Regulate Cannabis).
There is nothing in either bylaw delineating “what is” medicinal cannabis.
The Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is gushing into an Oiler Notely/Hulk Horgan no holds barred showdown, right down to the last drop of wine…err oil. There is no BC/Alberta media shortage on this issue so will let one of my online sources CBC take over my editorial copy that led to today’s editorial cartoon…
Noteworthy: “BC Winery TIME” produces bottles of Pinot Gris and Cabernet Merlot with the Flames’ distinctive flaming “C” logo on the wine label, along with the slogan “It’s Go TIME.” (apparently Premier Notely isn’t a “Flames Fan?)
