It’s not just Linda McQuaig: Citizen journalists expose other NDP’s anti-oil sands tweets (before they delete them)

NDP leader Thomas Mulcair still hasn’t publicly chastised star candidate Linda McQuaig for repeatedly stating that “some of the oil sands oil may have to stay in ground.”

    Good investigative piece by Ezra. Interestingly, one major newspaper put out a story — by a “business” analyst no less — defending (!) Linda McQuaig, stating that much of the oil sands will remain in the ground.

    And these higher taxes put the oil companies in a no-win situation as far as talking points for the oil sands.
    If they don’t file applications for new projects, the anti-oil crowd will say “See? Even the oil companies don’t want to invest in Alberta oil. It’s not good for anybody”
    If they do apply for new projects, “See? We are still getting applications. Obviously they are still making a huge profit even with the new taxes, so they were just being greedy before.”

      A lot have cancelled applications because they know they won’t be approved.
