LETTERS: We roll over all the time

Editor: Regarding softwood lumber, the U.S. – and, of course, Trump – will do whatever they want.


Regarding softwood lumber, the United States – and, of course, President Donald Trump – will do whatever they want, treaty or no treaty.

The State of California owes the taxpayers of B.C. millions and millions for unpaid hydro that we supplied them with years ago, and they refuse to pay.

B.C. has done nothing to collect this money.

So if the U.S. and Trump want to play hardball, so should we.

This summer, when it gets hot, the taxpayers of B.C. will require all the hydro for ourselves, so limit or shut down the hydro heading south.

Failing that – I know it will never happen – if the taxpayers, BC Hydro customers, are picking up this shortfall, bill the responsible people in Victoria and Ottawa, or give every hydro customer in B.C. a very large credit on their accounts.

No guts. We roll over all the time.
