Cause and effect

Trudeau wants to phase out the oil sands. That’s why it’s already happening

TransCanada’s cancellation of the Energy East pipeline demonstrates that elections matter and we get what we vote for.

Or at least what Liberal voters voted for.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in January he wants to “phase out” the oil sands and transition Canada to a low carbon economy.

For anyone wanting that, cancelled oil and gas pipelines are a dream come true, because they mean we can’t get our oil and natural gas resources in landlocked Alberta and Saskatchewan to refineries or global markets.

    Would Canadians vote for someone from the west who spoke like this?

    “I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.”
    John Diefenbaker (1895-1979), Prime Minister of Canada 1957-1963

    “In Pierre Trudeau, Canada has finally produced a Prime Minister worthy of assassination.”
    John Diefenbaker (1895-1979), Prime Minister of Canada 1957-1963

      Just imagine what he would have said about Justin who is far worse than his father. He probably would have suggested a painful and slow death.

        I don’t think Justin is worse than his father. Justin is just stupid, his father was evil.

        • DMB

          I disagree at least Pierre had some thought and ideas of his own (very bad ones). Justin on the other hand is a complete and total idiot with no polices, ideas of his own. He only reiterates what his advisers such as G.M. Butts tells him. He got into power for his looks and his name. Justin can only imitate what his father has done but at an accelerated rate. I never saw Pierre do the things that Justin does such as wear ridiculous socks , pander to Islam by reciting the Islamic prayer of conversion, marching with perverted degenerates at pride parades, etc.

            I think we agree, except I prefer “a complete and total idiot” to “very bad ideas of his own”.

            Pierre had ideas of his own, “(very bad ones)”
            Wikipedia: Evil, in a general context is the absence or opposite of that which is described as being good.
            Pierre could not attend “pride” parades because the idea was in its infancy, that Justin can today is evidence that some of Papa’s EVIL ideas have come to fruition. The liberal party of today is based upon Fabian Socialism, a direction that John Diefenbaker was obviously aware of and said as much with as strong of words as he could use.
            Pierre = evil
            Justin = Idiot, so he is worse than evil. Justin sat on the knee of Fidel while the Evil one was talking to the ‘exiled’ FLQ terrorists holed up in Fidel’s Cuba. Justin knows no other way of thinking, so he has no NEW ideas, only those that were instilled in him due to the Evil ones associations, lifestyle and beliefs.

    Two more people have resigned from his missing and murdered indian women inquiry. This is turning into a huge financial sink hole with no end in sight.

    • Cat-astrophe

      That is because the truth/solution is a problem.

    • Solo712

      That’s nothing compared to the $800 mil coughed as apology for the misguided effort in the 1960’s to separate Indian kids from their alcoholic communities and teach them English, arithmetic and personal hygiene.

      How do you think anything will ever be accomplished in this inquiry when they refuse to believe that the people responsible for the deaths of native women may in fact be natives themselves.

      • Will Quest

        The inquiry will be claimed successful when European colonization is declared the evil perpetrator of native victim hood and a huge bag of money is tagged to this proclamation …… the narrative of white man evil oppressor & natives the hapless oppressed most survive for eternity .

    That picture of Trudeau in the headdress is enough to put me off my TURKEY today…

  • The ones who are really hurt are those in Atlantic Canada who voted for this very thing.

    Screw you guys.

    • J. C.

      I never voted for him, but I’m still gonna suffer… At least I’ll get a small amount of satisfaction by saying “I told you so!” to my fellow NL’ers (I agree it’s not much, but ya takes what ya can get these days…)

    Low carbon dioxide economy means low activity, and low incomes.
