There are 14 Alberta Danielle Smith articles. None on any of the other premieres in the same time period.

So she has has over 100x the attention from CBC.

No of course not.  She is trying something very extraordinary.... I'm just saying, I read those and I don't feel any worse towards her..  Some is negative but there is also some understanding about what she is doing...  There are many articles, national and local about this, it's a pretty big deal and it just came out.

Why can’t the CBC pen a piece explaining the perceived benefits of Smith’s plan, and put that on their home page?

There are two sides to this. Why try to hide one of them?

Know it all.

That would be journalism. CBC is taxpayer-funded, government propaganda.

You can't really blame Alberta for wanting to go a little rogue after decades of Quebec receiving special treatment from Ottawa.

^ that’s from BBC.

Now here is a CBC article today:

They have followed the more than 40,000 who have arrived from France this year, many having made the journey from Afghanistan or Iran to travel across Europe and on to Britain.

Reported it on a whim and they already responded... :)  So fast... 

 

PS Editor is saying the story reads "many" come from Afghanistan or Iran, not all...  I guess 8,300 out of 40,0000 constitutes many.... Little lazy...

The CBC tells us - without evidence - that climate change is causing Canadian inflation:



In 1991, the Bank of Canada and the Canadian government decided that "low, stable and predictable inflation" would be the best thing for Canadians — and they agreed that a target inflation rate was two per cent.

That's around where it's been in Canada for the past 25 years.

But about a year ago, inflation started to rise — and rise, and rise — due to several factors, including supply chain issues that resulted from pandemic lockdowns, the war in Ukraine and climate change.

Are they??  How is climate change affecting the supply chain?

You tell me.  I find no evidence, certainly none in that article.

 

Canadian winters might be becoming less severe.  That would be good for supply chains.

 

Warmer Canadian winters means less demand for heating fuel.

Yeah I would need to ponder that one a little more..  I already am not impressed with the last editor I dealt with.  I'd hate to ask how they figure that.  

 

Google...

 

Scientists say that such climate-related disruptions are bound to intensify in coming years as the world warms. In addition, ports, rail lines, highways, and other transportation and supply infrastructure will be threatened by increases in sea level of an estimated 2 to 6 feet — and perhaps more — by 2100.

 

How Climate Change Is Disrupting the Global Supply Chain - Yale E360

 

Specifically

 

  • Fires in British Columbia from late June through early October triggered by an unprecedented heat wave comprised the third-worst wildfire season in the province’s history and closed a transportation choke point at Fraser Canyon that idled thousands of rail cars and stranded their contents. Then, in November, an atmospheric river, delivering what officials called “once-in-a-century” rainfall, caused severe flooding in the province. The floods severed crucial railroad and highway links to Canada’s largest port and forced a regional oil pipeline to close. The loss of the rail network forced provincial lumber companies to scale back production, causing price increases and shortages of lumber, paper pulp, and other wood products in the United States.

^ So all that stuff disrupted somewhat supply chains in 2020 and 2021.

 

Inflation is a recent phenomenon.

Speaking of inflation, as I sit here working on purchasing, I can tell you that prices at wholesale are coming down on many items, including beef and green vegetables like lettuce.  Didn't expect that, that's for sure. Lower fuel prices are likely the culprit on the beef.

I do but it had a very minimal impact on the wide Canadian or North American economy, taken as a whole.

It had a pretty major impact on supply chains for southwestern BC.

It did. But we look at national, North American and world inflation figures.
