Pipeline showdown hijacks premiers’ meeting

Journal Story:

Redford says deal would cut into Alberta's royalty!  Alberta collects no royalty. In fact, the royalty weshould be getting under contract (25%) is handed over to the oil companies as a discount on oil going into the pipeline! This allows oil to escape taxes of 25% of their revenue and shifts Canada's balance of trade numbers.

Further; Ms. Clark is simply passing air in a not so feeble attempt at being elected again. If she does
happen to get in, this position will simply drop out of sight; gone.

Saskatchewan will also be using that pipeline if it is built and is part of the deal now! The plans laid down
include Saskatchewan, They were the first to sign up with Alberta. Where are they in the mix? Who pays
what to whom? Liepert said the deal was cost/profit sharing!

Christie Clarke made a trip to Redford in Edmonton escaping through the back door of the legislature. She returned to BC and came up with this pay us story in order to play to voters hearts. When and if she is elected again the problem will no longer exist!

BC ships their oil via pipeline through Alberta to Chicago. Does she want to risk this? NO!

Clarke is all over the press as an advocate for an LNG shipping facility at Prince Rupert. This is dependent on pipelines. Does she want to risk that? NO!

She is talking the talk and has no problems about telling outright lies to
get elected again..

Smith has been party to this pipeline from it's concept forward through the long time Liberal collusion with the Conservatives and US Republicans through their private club PENWR

The Town of Devon has a great many kilometers of finished, pristine walking trails.  Not all are through the bush but entirely pleasant to take advantage of.  Some follow, more to come.
