Talstra has even taken to asking to share in Kitimat’s Alcan

CORRIDOR THROUGH NORTHWEST IGNORED

Merv Ritchie

We thought we had a scoop! Federal Minister Emerson was going to announce funding for projects in BC from the Asia Pacific https://www.naslsoccerbowl.com Corridor Initiative. The most spectacular part Canada Goose Online of the Corridor is goose outlet cheap canada goose canada the Canada Goose Outlet Port in canada canada goose uk black friday goose outlet uk sale Prince Rupert and the ability to canada goose jacket outlet manage the Worlds largest vessels, coming from Asia, in a shorter journey than to any canada goose outlet uk other North American Port. Even better still canada goose uk outlet for this transportation structure canada goose uk shop is that no trucks are involved. The containers get canada goose outlet reviews placed directly onto railcars and take the shortest route, in a virtual canada goose black friday sale straight line, direct to Memphis, passing through Chicago. The North American Industrialists are absolutely thrilled, except for those heavily invested in canada goose outlet toronto factory other West Coast Ports.

This is why we were so sure that the Northwest would be the recipient of some of the Asia Pacific monies. canada goose outlet nyc All that volume of rail traffic passing through our communities increases not only canada goose outlet shop in the number of trains daily, but also the length of these trains. All of the six funding announcements last week were for projects in the Lower Mainland. Not a peep about us, in the most economically devastated part of the province, that is about to provide astounding economic advantage to the entire North American Continent.

Terrace Mayor, Canada Goose Jackets Jack Talstra has been actively courting the major corporate players and yet his town is in a state of almost perpetual bankruptcy while his neighbours seem to prosper just a little better. Trying to find some money to fuel the City’s lawnmowers is proving to be an overwhelming task it seems. Talstra has even taken to asking to share in Kitimat’s Alcan tax base Canada Goose online claiming that many of their employees live in Terrace. It is that desperate in Terrace.

One thing that might have to do with this seemingly affront to the Northwest is that every political representative, Federal and Provincial, save one, sits on the wrong side canada goose outlet of the corporate wing. Nathan Cullen, Federal MP Skeena Bulkley Valley Robin Austin, Provincial MLA, Skeena Gary Coons, Provincial MLA North Coast speaking with Mayor Talstra last week he stated that we seem to be our own worst enemies. He was fairly representing his point of view that we should be courting the corporations and industrial development opportunities rather than protesting them and, like Kitimat, taking them to Court. I canada goose outlet jackets think we just vote the wrong way and will be punished until we learn how to vote properly.

I wonder though, here we have the most incredible economic boom for the entire continent and our region remains ignored and in economic shambles. We are even closing schools and music programs for our children, our future. Personally I canada goose outlet canada am pretty ashamed to be a Canadian right now when I look around the Country and then drive around my new hometown cheap canada goose of Terrace. We don’t deserve to be anyone’s lap dog. We should be respected and treated with some measure of dignity. Being left to fight amongst ourselves over the meager scraps of economic activity like a bunch of cannibals is simply just too embarrassing to watch.
