Dippers are fond of donning green when an election looms but we've learned, time and again, it's all electoral greenwash.
When in the throes of an ideological aneurism, the BC Liberals moved to introduce a carbon tax it was the NDP that rose in indignation to oppose it, arguing that its pickup truck-driving constituents would find a few extra cents a litre some mortal hardship. Then those buggers rode to power on the strength of their own greenwash.
Horgan still ostensibly opposes Trudeau's Trans Mountain pipeline but he's backing the Site C dam. He's also siding with the forestry industry and its workers on their efforts to savage what remains of our old growth forests. Meanwhile, just next door, Comrade Notley is still boosting bitumen.
Typical NDP. They know there's no risk of getting into power so they can shovel as much horse shit as the voters will swallow.
Meanwhile, MSN reminds us how freely Trudeau's department of fisheries and oceans betrays British Columbia.
A World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Canada study has recently found that cruise ships dumped 1.3 billion liters of wastewater in BC oceans just off coast in 2017.
The study concluded that a total of 1.54 billion litres of greywater was generated by general ships, therefore cruise ships (counting in at 1.37 billion liters) are responsible for a jaw-dropping 90% of that sewage. The study focused mainly on cruise ships traveling from Washington to Alaska in Canadian waters.It speaks volumes that with our salmon stocks in peril (not to mention our Orca on the ropes), the Trudeau regime wants to launch an armada of poison laden supertankers through our challenging coastal waters, refuses to stop the fish farms that are responsible for spreading disease through our wild salmon, and allows cruise ships to dump enough sewage in our coastal waters to create oceanic dead zones. All those cruise ships have to do is wait until they're three miles offshore and they can do whatever they like.
Greywater refers to dishwater, shower drainage, fecal matter, and micro-plastics, to name a few. According to the report, it is very common for ships to dump grey water into the ocean due to the lack of storage on board.
WWF explains that greywater during is governed by provincial laws, but that these laws can only cover ships within three nautical miles from the shore. Therefore, anything beyond that border doesn’t need to treat or report their wastewater at all.Oceanic dead zones, FFS! When it comes to my coast, my seas, my old growth forests, neither the Liberals nor the NDP are worth a good gawdamn. And Singh isn't blowing smoke up this guy's backside either.
