We have a Marie Antoinette power company

It seems that BC Hydro has become a modern-day Marie Antoinette.

It seems that BC Hydro has become a modern-day Marie Antoinette.

Sadly, the complacent silence of the many indicates complicity with BC Hydro’s manic irrational socialist behaviour. Unless a high percentage of the population demands that BC Hydro be controlled, BC Hydro will continue to do to us whatever pleases it.

I used to think that British Columbians were more intelligent than Californians. I no longer think this.

Californians have got together and asserted far more control over their electrical company than we have.

Because of our silence and complacence, most of us are getting what we deserve: unaffordable electricity mostly produced from rivers that we own.
