So, sitting, and thinking, of that which is paramount in my mind. I thought......"Hummm, it was not so long ago, the government requested B.C. Hydro try and get their books in order. They were told to cut costs...a few employees apparently got the door. I remember this clearly, because, finally they were going to stop chewing the fat. Well, fast forwards, just a little, and...it has been just a little. Suddenly there is a huge project. One that will keep Hydro employees busy for years to come. No more costs cuts, just a ton of money suddenly on their door step. A project that sat on the shelves for years, without need. A project that if it truly was as necessary as they claim, they definitely would have been setting aside money for, and when the cuts were demanded, they would have spoke up and told the people they couldn't possibly lay anyone off, because of this enormous project.
We are so stupid. We have had the wool pulled over our eyes, accepted the tiny little slap on the wrist Hydro was given, and then watched as their future glows with promise of unending supplies of contractors, and new hires up the ying yang.
I can't possibly be the only person shaking their head at the complete 360, can I?
