Natural gas boom the stuff of fairly tales

Province's projections for natural gas won;t come to fruition

Re: B.C. gas boom is real all right (B.C. Views, Feb. 20)

While Christy Clark’s government is to be congratulated on its plans to try and obtain hundreds of billions of dollars from liquefied natural gas sales over the next 30 years, I think it is missing out on some other more realistic opportunities.

For example, why not slap a heavy tax on the thousands of pigs that are expected to fly through the air space above the legislature over the next 30 years?

And all of the leprechauns who will undoubtedly be making extensive use of the legislative lawns over the next 30 years should be required to pay substantial user fees.
