Sending the Peace River to the USA!

Weatherford Project detailed.

Weatherford Project was the start of a gigantic transfer of water to the US. The whole program is adequately explained here: NAWAPA (Credit to Richard Weatherhill) This video is a US concept shown in its best light bought into wholeheartedly by the Harper and Prentice Conservatives. (This is the US view of what they want) and what they are looking for now.

The *Conservative Government has a fully mechanically engineered project sitting on their shelf from the 1980s. It is as valid today as when it was paid for. Harper has removed the Navigable water protection from the River making it all possible.  It’s in play now! Trudeau killed the move.

This is the Weatherford project, the design being to move up to 2/3rds of the flow of the Peace River into the USA! 

The project has 8 large electrical lift stations in it, each one using the power of a large city. This is immense and under a Conservative Government taxpayers will pay for the infrastructure and private companies will take home the profits.

Under a “good” Liberal Government the price of construction would be carried by those who need the water, not those who supply it. Think here of our present electricity debacle!

The government’s direction will be handled by private industry and paid for by the Alberta Taxpayers.

For those of you in southern Alberta; the St. Mary’s system and involved in the Western Irrigation District; Did you sign up for this? Many of you were kicked off the board while others with cash were able to buy rock piles so they could claim adjoining property thereby being put on the board.

Mike Cardinal reworked the Western Irrigation board while he was selling off Crown Grazing Lands on the East Slope of the Rockies to the Agra Food Industry. Rules of water ownership run First in Line, First in Time and these properties are where all of our groundwater used for drinking originates!  

When a River drops to 1/3 of its flow it goes stagnant, the river dies. Kenny is okay with this as is a long list of Conservatives before him. They all plan to serve the US water needs at Canada’s expense!

The US has announced it will build a rail from our North Coast to the US to move oil. Why would they do this when they are oil self-sufficient.  I think rail is to move The Peace River by rail into the USA Tour of NAWAPAA Tour of

Politics not to blame for inflation: former Bank of Canada governor

With inflation becoming a regularly politicized topic as debates over the cost of breakfasts rule the day, the former Bank of Canada (BoC) governor says there can’t be anyone on the political spectrum who deserves blame.

Speaking to Global News’ Abigail Bimman on The West Block regarding the upcoming fiscal update, Stephen Poloz, now a special adviser at Osler and former governor of the BoC, said that Canada’s ability to navigate the pandemic with results that weren’t far more drastic economically should be commended.

“Aren’t we lucky that the policies worked well to prevent the second Great Depression, which is what many economists were worried about when we first encountered the COVID-19 shock,” Poloz said.

However, he added that while Canada chartered a path towards recovery amid concerns of deflation with debt that could’ve potentially caused a depression, now is time to continue focusing on growth.

“People want to be reassured that the fiscal plan is a sustainable one,” said Poloz. Given the rising costs Canadians are facing, they’re going to want to see a plan that will ease tensions, he added.

Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland’s fiscal update is set to be similar to those that were released following the 2015 and 2019 elections, according to Reuters. The update is expected to touch on COVID-19 support for businesses and continue to chart a path for recovery during the pandemic.

“[A plan] that perhaps begins the [economic] return to a place where we’ll know we’ll have some room to maneuver should another big shock occur,” Poloz said.

Poloz mentioned that he, along with other Canadians, will be looking to see where the deficit in the debt plan fits in if there will be new taxes that could hamper economic growth and what will happen to internal trade barriers between provinces. He added that one temporary increase he would look to that would not slow growth, but rather support the Canadian economy, is an increase in sales tax.

What could slow growth, he said, was if there are more lockdowns due to further complications with the COVID-19 pandemic as new variants emerge.

“My sense is that economic growth, once we’re past the bust and recovery of the COVID shock, the trend rate of growth of the economy is actually going to be fairly modest,” he said.

According to the BoC, inflation, as measured by the consumer price index, has been higher than the Bank’s 2.0 percent target. The BoC said that supply constraints have affected the price of goods with inflation in 2021 hitting 4.4 percent. The steep rise in inflation in one year is unprecedented given the data from before the pandemic, where during a span of 20 years, it only averaged 1.4 percent.

Poloz said that inflation is often a slow-moving process over several years, but the sharp rise in costs is an indicator that it is likely coming from “temporary factors.”

According to the Bank of Canada website, the steep inflation increase has been due to “strong demand combined with disruptions in supply” leading to “higher costs for businesses and higher prices for consumers.”

On Dec. 9, the BoC’s deputy governor Toni Gravelle in a speech said the central bank remains “resolute in its commitment to keep inflation under control” in Canada.

With Canadians paying more at the grocery store now than a year ago, Poloz mentioned that any measures used to curb inflation need to be well thought out, as we don’t know the extent of what is happening.

“We’re in the zone now where fine judgments have to take place,” he said. “We won’t know really what inflation is for about another six or nine months.”

Since the pandemic began in March 2020, the BoC has kept the key interest rate at 0.25 percent, and announced recently they will maintain that price. However, they have signalled potential increases in 2022.

Poloz said that with the Canadian economy trending in the right direction and “mostly back to normal,” raising the key benchmark rate is something that should be considered, albeit not right away.

“It is time for everything to normalize — prices, interest rates, all those things,” said Poloz. “It’s no longer necessary to have really, really low-interest rates.”

Poloz added that the data that comes out regarding inflation and the continued COVD-19 economic recovery should serve as the driving points to where the key benchmark rate will end up.
