Conifex, the lumber company with a heart for energy and an eye on the future, has recently been seen shaking its metaphorical fist at the provincial government of British Columbia. Why? Well, according to them, it seems like our dear leaders are blissfully skipping past golden opportunities that could boost energy affordability and technological innovation in their region.
In a statement so public you’d think they shouted it from mountaintops (or maybe just sent out a press release), Conifex expressed their disappointment. They believe that by ignoring these chances for improvement, BC’s power distribution grid is being left weaker than a kitten after leg day at the gym. Not only this but inclusive economic growth – something we all know governments love as much as free lunches – is also taking quite the hit.
A Plea For Change
“We’re not asking for miracles here,” said Conifex spokesperson Ima Lumberjack (not her real name). “Just some common sense decisions that will help us move forward into this brave new world of renewable resources.”
The Missed Opportunities
So what exactly are these missed opportunities? Well sit back folks because we’ve got ourselves quite a list:
- An opportunity to improve energy affordability – Because who doesn’t want cheaper bills?
- An opportunity to accelerate technological innovation – Because who doesn’t want to live in the future?
- An opportunity to strengthen the reliability and resiliency of the power distribution grid – Because who wants a blackout during their favorite TV show?
- An opportunity for more inclusive economic growth – Because who doesn’t want everyone to have a fair shot at success?
Conifex’s Call To Action
In response, Conifex is not just sitting back and twiddling their thumbs. No sir! They’re calling on all British Columbians (and anyone else willing to listen) to join them in urging government officials into action.
“We can do better,” said Lumberjack. “And we will do better if our leaders take these opportunities seriously.”
A Final Word
So there you have it folks – Conifex’s plea for change wrapped up with a neat little bow. Will BC’s provincial government heed this call? Or will they continue strolling past these golden opportunities like someone avoiding eye contact with an ex at a party? Only time will tell!
