Deals with big corporations hurting citizens

I am baffled by the deals B.C. (and for that matter the feds) are making with foreign corporations.

Ms. Clark, Mr. Horgan:

I am baffled by the deals B.C. (and for that matter the feds) are making with foreign corporations.

It seems like we keep saying to them: “Please, take more, more. We don’t want those resources anyway, just take them. We don’t want to offend you by maximizing local jobs and economies; every little scrap is plenty for us. We are ever so modest, just a little Third World colony, like we used to be. None of that nationalism we saw for a short time in the ’60s. That was an anomaly. Really, we’ll be good from now on. Just take what you want, leave us a few crumbs, and that’s all we ask!”

It may come as a surprise to you, but I don’t want to be a corporate colonial, nor do most Canadians I have spoken to.
