Welcome to the new BC : the "Greatest Place on Earth" where forest companies and developers dictate land use policy. Where the forests are cleared and good paying jobs are disappearing to be replaced by pavement and land strata developments peopled with retirees and where the only jobs are in the service sector at $ 10/hour if you're lucky. Read this Globe & Mail article and weep.
("Greatest Place on Earth" is the new header appearing on this year's automobile licence plates; the plate with the Olympic logo on it. It makes me think of China and its slogans papered everywhere. Say it enough and they will believe.)
