Solving the Atlantic Canada Gas Shortage With One Easy Fix

One expert is predicting shortages of natural gas in Atlantic Canada as early as this year. This means they’ll either have to start importing it from the U.S. — or start fracking it themselves.

After all, the region is sitting on billions of dollars in natural gas reserves.

Unfortunately, anti-fracking riots have broken out in places like New Brunswick, and under pressure, governments have instituted fracking moratoriums.

Ezra Levant says this would be like Saskatchewan banning its own farmers from growing wheat and importing it from America instead.

    I know Alberta will sell it to the americans and they can resell it to the atlantic provinces.

    Of course if Turdeau gets in he’ll just take the gas from the west and give it to quebec and ontario so they can sell it to the maritimes, it’s what daddy did.

      Right up until Alberta and probably Saskatchewan leave Confederation. NEP II will kill this country.

        To be honest as an Albertan I would vote for separation if the Turd was to bring in any form of NEP2.0

    They’ll use it eventually. Maybe not this generation, but the next one.

    If they’re that stupid then screw them. Let the eastern bastards freeze in the dark.

      Trim the equalization payments; if they don’t want to frack, they don’t need cash to buy fuel.

      The Maritimes. The welfare queens of Canada.

    Nothing ever happens down home until all the patronage whores agree on how other peoples money will be divvied up for their maximum benefit.

    Another nail in the coffin of the myth that “We Canadians are much smarter than Americans!”

    Generally speaking, I preserve my sense of optimism by resolutely ignoring anything said by anyone under age 40. I know it sounds unrealistic, but I would rather listen to genuine stupidity over naive belief in propaganda.

    There are entire provinces without a lick of sense in Canada. PEI, for example, remains a pimple on the arse of economic progress because it should not be a province on its own. PEI, New Bruswick and Nova Scotia, it could be argued, should be amalgamated into one province. One much larger, equally stupid province, perhaps. But nonetheless, significant economies of scale could be realized, making the maritimes less of a drain in the rest of the country.
