Because they feared ‘memes and rap’.
Yes…memes and rap…
How could I not? No footage. No transcripts.
Nothing to do with the court hearings at all to be safe…
Just a little story about Site C. 😉
( To the Fresh Prince of Bel Air)
Now this is a story, all about how
Some folks lives got flipped right upside down
Will ya humour me a minute
Just wait and see…
I’ll tell you bout the travesty that is known as Site C.
In Victoria, elected & paid
Was a premier, who really loved to see her name
Making headlines, fundraising she had no shame…
Showing up for photo-ops was her thing
Salutations, big donations, dollars crossed the line
All “Get er done, I’m the one!” was her chime.
But something was missing – she had no real legacy…
Then she dreamed her name was on dam: “Let’s build Site C!”
Hell-bent, off she went, pink hard hat in hand
Grabbed a shiny shovel to break ground on just sand
No business plan? Caucus said, “Not to worry!”…
Cause loyalty was valued more than the Peace River Valley.
But the people said, “Not happening. No dam way!”
They built a camp, I had writer’s cramp,then Nature got her way…
Geotech, another cheque, cracks and slides
When Horgan wins, the fix is in, and UNDRIP’s tossed aside.
He had a chance, but chose to dance & blame Ms. Clark
Now Hydro’s secrets catching up, the truth is stark
No bedrock, stop the clock, this ain’t your legacy…
John, don’t be “the guy who had the chance to stop Site C.”
Yeah…I’m no rapper. Best I could do with some edits by a friend 😛
On a more serious note..but referred to above…the court case reveals the BC govt is backtracking on indigenous rights. A must read: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/amp/canada/british-columbia/article-bc-government-backtracking-dangerously-on-commitment-to-indigenous/
