Interesting Numbers

Feb 12, 2018 | 14:37 1 First I apologize for the topic, read an article that caused me to look this up. Source for numbers is Statscan. Net gasoline consumption Alberta 2012, keep in mind numbers are in 1000 litres. 6,001,700. Net consumption 2016 6,297,500 an increase of 4.93%. Net gasoline consumption in B.C. In 2012 4,384,707 in 2016 4,597,928 an increase of 4.86%. Net diesel consumption in Alberta 4,054,000 in 2016 3,525,100 a decrease of 13.05%. Net diesel consumption in B.C. In 2012 1,761,637 in 2016 1,747,579 a decrease of .8 %. The reason I bring this up is B.C. Carbon tax is always pointed to for its success. Now I realize these numbers are not corrected for population growth but still doesn't show the carbon tax as being successful. It does show how lack of oil drilling activity in 2016 in Alberta lowered diesel consumption. Reply With Quote

Whites. When most people are not like that.
Given the circumstances.does anyone think the verdict would be different if the kids were white
DO not think so .
A lot of folks trying to make mileage out of a tragedy.

I think this might have ended up in the wrong thread. But strangely enough it is equally relevant to this thread. Reply With Quote
