Site C becomes Clark’s quest for glory

Once upon a time Premier Christy Clark was content to play the leading lady in that farcical BC Liberal mini-series, “Calamity Jane Goes to Victoria.” When Clark was defeated in her Point Grey riding, she was forced to find a safe seat. She chose Westside-Kelowna, the bastion of conservative values and the ancestral home of the fabled Bennett clan.

Clark has become enthralled with the mythical legacy of the late Premier ‘Wacky’ Bennett, the renowned builder of dams. Although times have changed, Christy Clark has become drunk on her dream of becoming another mega-project builder. She is charging hell bent for leather into the Peace River Valley with the same pig-headed bravado demonstrated by General George Custer when he attacked at Little Bighorn.

Perhaps this damn $9 billion-dollar mega project will also come to be known as Premier Clark’s last stand. Hopefully the First Nations people of Peace River will cut Clark’s hyper-inflated ambitions down to size with court challenges and judicial judgments before British Columbians are up to their necks in red ink.
