Right in the centre - It doesn't make sense /opinion/9444-right-in-the-centre-it-doesn-t-make-sense /opinion/9444-right-in-the-centre-it-doesn-t-make-sense

I have been accumulating a number of things in my mind that don鈥檛 make sense. I am sure you could add many more to the list

A recent report notes that B.C. produces more wood pellets than any other Canadian province, and production is 鈥渄ominated鈥 by a U.K.-based company Drax, which owns the world鈥檚 single-largest wood-burning facility. Drax also owns, or partially owns, eight of B.C鈥檚 12 pellet mills and is responsible for 80 per cent of the province鈥檚 exports. Anther report noted that Drax gets paid a huge subsidy from the British government to burn these pellets to make steam to make electricity. Why? Because the government has decided that wood pellets are better than coal. Really? Britain produces coal so how can wood chips make more sense than coal when the trees have to be cut, the wood has to be chipped, then pelleted. The pellets have to be trucked to a railhead, shipped by rail to a seaport, shipped by sea to England, unloaded and then put into a huge furnace to make steam so an electrical generator can make electricity. Now please tell me why that makes sense?

Right in the Centre - Historical Foundations (repeat) /opinion/9442-right-in-the-centre-historical-foundations-repeat /opinion/9442-right-in-the-centre-historical-foundations-repeat

The following column is a re-run from July 2023. Whether it鈥檚 a review or new to you, I hope you enjoy the history and I welcome your comments.

When we look back through the archived pages of our newspapers, we get a bird鈥檚 eye view of how things were done over 100 years ago. Some things really stand out.

Perhaps the first thing that jumps off the pages is the lack of what would today we call 鈥減olitical correctness鈥. Opinions and humour back in the day were pretty much unbridled. There was no filter on the editors鈥 typewriters 100 or more years ago.They said whatever was on their minds and sometimes their comments very bluntly called out politicians and citizens alike.
