It was not a rah-rah tone that Premier Christy Clark took when she spoke at the BC Natural Resources Forum on Wednesday. …Then Clark started to reveal what kind of a mood she was really in, underneath it all: a fighting mood. Not a belligerent mood, but square-shouldered to the challenging winds of a softwood lumber agreement that needs to be negotiated with the United States, an oil industry that likely won’t be bouncing back anytime soon, a neighbouring province that is economically ill and others in Canada also gasping on fiscal fumes we are forced to ingest in our jurisdiction, and even a sentiment of opposition that doesn’t just seek to hold government accountable on environmental concerns or policy concerns but would prefer no industrial development at all.
