  • DrCaleb: Do not want.
  • bootlegga: It's unclear what the project could mean for Alberta's tax base. Black Rock said the site would be staffed by Chinese and English speaking technicians and other employees, but it's unclear how many jobs the project would entail.

    The irony that Chinese jobs are getting outsourced to Canada is delicious, but I'm still not interested in having these in Alberta, because they'll eat up energy, create extra emissions from fossil fuels, and likely not add very much to our tax base.

    You don't get rewarded for verifying the CRC of the blockchain. It's random. So extra stupid.
  • housewife: If they built something to draw the heat and used it to heat local neighbourhoods Iím sure it will be fine (free heat for all!!!).
