Our province has announced a new energy plan today. The document has been on the drawing boards for at least a decade but now it's finalized. The wording is great prior to an election less than a month away. "achieve self-reliance and prosperity, as well as develop sustainable green energy solutions for the 21st century." Masters of our own house speech again but this time it takes things up a notch. The new document calls for a ten percent equity in all oil/gas projects down our road to being masters of our own house. That's twice as much then our 4.9 percent we recently got from the Hebron deal. The ordinary Joe like myself can only look at it all in awe and agree with the wording we see. Those who do not agree have their own reasons, some may be political but i'm sure they're all not. One sentence in the news release said it all for me. "History reveals the price we have paid for lack of proper planning."
lets hope we get it right this time around. At least we have a plan to start with!

Actually, it doesn't.

It talks about a 10% equity stake "where it fits with the strategic long-term blah blah blah".

In other words, there's a political escape clause: if the "10% equity stake" can be dispensed with for the sake of a deal, it can be.

So that’s the thanks you get for putting in a good word for your incumbent LIBERAL MHA eh.

I haven’t read the document, never do on these things; I just read the political pundits and reporters, dived by half, throw away 3, add 11/4 and take that as gospel. It’s as good and nearer the truth than what Danny or any of them say in the first place.
