Liberals finally approve $36B energy project — but will it ever be built?

Rebel Staff
 

After a three-year delay, Ottawa approves a $36 billion energy project in British Columbia. Natural gas will be produced through fracking, piped to the coast, liquefied — that’s what LNG means, liquefied natural gas — then shipped to Asia.

There are other multi-billion dollar LNG projects planned too. Just think of all the jobs.

But don’t pop the champagne corks yet. Sure, it was approved, except with 190 conditions. The president of Petronas said he’ll look them over and get back to us.

While Petronas’s application was hummed and hawed over by Canadian bureaucrats, the cost of the project grew, but the value just fell by two thirds.

And 8,377 people were “witnesses” or made “submissions” about this project, at a kind of court. People who had no connection to it; who were clearly paid harassers.

Stephen Harper approved the Northern Gateway pipeline, but Canada’s arrogant courts struck it down, in an activist-backed lawsuit. Do you doubt foreign-funded eco-activists will sue to stop this, too?

The real hope for Canadian oil and gas isn’t Trudeau, and it sure isn’t Rachel Notley.

Bizarrely, paradoxically, it’s the Communist country of China…

Columnist Lorne Gunter comes on to talk about this LNG project.

Then Brad Trost joins me to discuss his campaign for the Conservative Party of Canada leadership.

Robert Hewgill—-50cents isn’t much as oil was over $100.00 per Barrel back then.
If a truck full of lumber tips over, its easy to clean up. If Alberta had a normal Gov’t, I would temporally cut BC off, just to show the crazy environmentalists what its like without fuel.

Interesting to see Brad Trost’s eyebrows raise when Ezra asked if we are going to see a Conservative oppose carbon tax and global warming. Expect to hear more from him on that as the campaign unfolds.

Robert Hewgill——You are referring to BC not allowing pipelines, therefore screwing the Alberta economy. Yes Christie Clark did say, BC takes all the risks while Alberta and the Feds get all the money. If only your Premier Redford would have refrained from building Sky Suites for herself and offered Christie 50 cents a barrel for the oil going through the pipeline, it would have been built, and everyone would have been happy.

Why would Alberta pay BC a gawd damn f-cking cent. Get your f-cking lumber and container trains out of Alberta. If we didn’t have a bunch of crawling thieving cowards running Alberta the oil would be shut off to BC refineries and fuel to the gas stations. We’d bring you SOB’s to a stand still.

So Who is paying the protestors might be valuable information and the answer to that would surprise most people working in the oil & gas industry

- The next election will be a referendum on rather Canadians want to live in poverty & be ruled over by SJW idiots or want to be prosperous & ruled by adults. It’s up to the Conservative Party to give Canadian’s that choice & let them know that it’s the choice they’re making.

Crispy Cluck has made a deal with the babbling Blonde in Ottawa to increase carbon tax if the LNG project were to be approved. Now isn’t that nice !!

we should remind her of what happened to Gordo Scambell when he brought in the HST

My money is on it never coming to fruition. I would love to eat my words.

Any investor with half a brain will not put their money down in a country with all the bullshit that Canadastan has going down.Every idiot that oppose this gets a voice,so this is just lip service and nothing else.This project will not happen.

I give Brad a <0% chance of becoming leader.

Al Peterson and some others think that Canada is a write-off, that our economy will go down the drain because of decisions by the current government.

Hello everyone – above is another example of an “internet troll” – the internet rule says down vote and ignore. Never reply to a “internet troll” ’s comments – they are made to annoy and are usually biased left/socialist/marxist. These are minimum wage paid nuisances.

Or you could just tell this piece of shit to fuck off – but no more than that.

IGNORE THE INTERNET TROLLS!!!
commented 2016-09-29 01:42:39 -0400
Ottawa is running out of cash (ie: they let Notley murder the oil industry) and are in panic mode.

Too little, too late “oh stupid one” Trudeau!!!

Another botch job by CUCK Trudeau – hey Canada, would you please stop voting for marxist fucks like this piece of shit in the future? PLEAASSEEE?!!!!!
commented 2016-09-29 01:19:02 -0400
I would probably trust Christy Clarke on this one.
commented 2016-09-29 00:47:22 -0400
Sandra Armitage—The Politician that said 5 yeses to those questions would solve many of Canadas problems. The one you missed was; would you put a pause on Islamic Immigration.
commented 2016-09-29 00:45:07 -0400
@ Bob Egli….Please, Christy Clarke tried to shake down Alberta for TOO much and was instrumental in bogging down the whole process. Trudeau is useless.

Jay, do you have sun stroke?

Dump Justin

The Rebel is a good forum for discussion.

The liquefied natural gas pipeline going through British Columbia seems like a good idea and BC Premier Christi Clarke is all in favour. There are estimates that it will create 5,000 jobs in BC.

Will it hurt Alberta, or will no jobs be created in Alberta?

Premier Clarke and Prime Minister Trudeau seem to be all in. Is this a project that will benefit Alberta?
commented 2016-09-29 00:21:19 -0400
@ Sandra Armitage

Those are some heavy hitting questions that need to be asked of Brad Trost, for sure.
commented 2016-09-29 00:19:38 -0400
Trudeau’s motivation came from his finance department warning him perto revenues are way down and his hatred of western oil will have to take second place to being blamed for a depression.

He handled the project like the boob he is and it may not be salvagable now just like the 4 seats they gained in Alberta will evaporate
commented 2016-09-29 00:17:54 -0400
Jay Kelly said, " … and Alberta in particular. "

The LNG project will not affect Alberta, except to give those Albertans who’s lives hat Notley destroyed an opportunity to possibly get a job there. But other than that, Alberta will not be affected by the LNG project.
commented 2016-09-29 00:14:51 -0400
Bob Egli why then why does Alberta not get a cut of the pipe BC has going through ALberta?

Jay, how did you get out of your straight jacket again? Better grab a warm glass of milk and tuck yourself in before you get hurt. You are far too naive. Your Gayness, Trudope the Younger, will prove to be a MONUMENTAL disaster by the time he is done. Prepare to mourn.

@sandra ARMITAGE….That is a nice list for starters.

Al Peterson and some others think that Canada is a write-off, that our economy will go down the drain because of decisions by the current government.

Maybe we have a lot going for us. Trudeau’s support of B.C. and the natural gas pipeline is obviously a project to support the economy, and to support the economy of British Columbia and Alberta in particular.

Rebel readers have a good sense of the economy. Let’s support it.
commented 2016-09-28 23:20:56 -0400
Why don’t you ask these Conservative candidates some real tough questions like:
Are you going to terminate the Indian Act?
Are you going to terminate the subsidy to the CBC?
Are you going to terminate the federal Human Rights Commission?
Are you going to amend the Canada Health Act to allow the provinces to innovate and to make timeliness of care one of the core principles?
Are you going to publically and forcefully denounce climate change alarmists for the scammers that they are?

Jay, you are delirious aren’t you. Go see a specialist.

I don’t think Justin will lose any sleep if the LNG deal doesn’t go ahead. He can now play Pontius Pilate and wash his hands of the matter while his base will be pleased.
commented 2016-09-28 22:57:30 -0400
So far, I like Brad Trost! I’ll keep an eye on him going forward.
commented 2016-09-28 22:47:15 -0400
Trudeau’s decision about the pipeline is just Hot Air. I cannot see his bosses in Saudi Arabia giving him permission to go ahead and his friends in the Muslim controlled UN, are going to have a word in his ear.

The Middle East wants full control of energy. When they have this they can stop ships from going to sea and aircraft from flying. A useful tool, in the event of war.

The fact that Trudeau is in partnership with these Heathens, just makes things easier.
commented 2016-09-28 22:45:20 -0400
Justin Trudeau seems hell-bent on approving these pipelines. He knows that they will benefit British Columbia’s economy tremendously — many jobs constructing and many jobs maintaining.

Kristy Clarke is certainly in favour of something that will benefit her Province to the tune of billions of dollars.

Ezra, you may be right about the LNG approval being a sham.
Let’s see, if it doesn’t go through, JT can explain to the Chinese and western Canada:
…it was the First Nations that stopped it, sorry, can’t do anything about it
…it was blocked by environmentalists, sorry, the enviro-regulations showed that they’re right, can’t do anything about it
…Petronas changed its mind, sorry, the nat gas prices are just too low, can’t do anything about it
…we were threatened with blockades and violence by the climate change folks, sorry, we don’t want to spark violence, can’t do anything about it
Sorry China. Sorry Western Canadians. I did my best…you know that…right?
commented 2016-09-28 21:13:20 -0400
STEVE HICKEN , EXZACTLY!!!!!
The only way it can be done is by making a deal with China, and let the Chinese military police it
There goes our sovereignty
