Liberals “play politics” with Alberta jobs by rejecting Northern Gateway

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

While everyone is celebrating two no-brainer pipeline approvals, I’m going to bring you a local’s take on the cancellation of the Northern Gateway Pipeline project which would have started in my community. I am that local.

The Northern Gateway Pipeline would have moved oil from Bruderheim, Alberta to a port in Kitimat, BC and then to Asian markets.

That pipeline, unlike the other two approvals-Line 3 and the Kinder Morgan expansion- would have actually done something to diversify Canada’s customer base and assured us a future market for our oil as the US becomes less dependant on Canada for their energy needs.

It is more important now than ever to approve a pipeline to take oil to Asia. And even though Northern Gateway passed all the regulatory and environmental hurdles, it was vetoed by Trudeau the same way Obama blocked Keystone XL; for purely political reasons.

The Liberals cancelled this pipeline to satiate their liberal base outside of Alberta.

Bruderheim is a sacrifice community. They won’t vote Liberal. They will never vote Liberal. The Liberals have nothing to lose by trading our jobs and our livelihoods, and our children's futures, to make a potential liberal voter somewhere else happy.

We wanted this pipeline. We needed this pipeline. We needed these jobs.

Instead, we got more of the Liberal's war on small town Alberta.

Kevin Grabowski…
That is a hell of a plan and I am in..
Shouldn’t be too hard to find a lawyer and enough signatures to petition that so I guess the only thing stalling this out is resources..
We need to get a trust put together that people can donate to and held by a law firm and I believe that’s how it would start..

I think the key political motive in this decision is that the MGP was poised to put $2 billion a year into 31 indigenous communities as profit partners in the project – this income is reliable and weaned these communities off government dependency – there’s the rub – you can’t dictate policy to people who are economically independent.

I’m convinced the whole Ottawa indigenous welfare program is a plan to keep these people dependent and compliant to Ottawa authority.

anyone that thinks there will be no VIOLENT protests is in dreamland….these protesters don’t have jobs so they have lots of time to get in the way of people who actually want to work,and the " LAW ’ means nothing to them cuz they have NO respect for law and order !!!! go just one day without something made of petro-chemicals……..no phones,cars ,computers,heat,hydro…….LEMME KNOW HOW THAT GOES SNOWFLAKE !!!!! we all know that won’t happen !!!!

The most troubling part of this is Notley’s conduct. She seems to think that by immolating her own province, via increased income taxes and a carbon tax, that Trudeau should be satisfied and, by his divine sovereign authority, grant us an expansion to one pipeline, and replacement work on another. I guess Trudeau was not happy until Notley made sure all the economic benefits from pipelines ended up in government coffers. Central planning at its best. It’s no surprise, given his love for China and his worship of Castro.

‘In June 2014, the Government of Canada announced the approval of Northern Gateway project, subject to 209 Conditions set out by the Joint Review Panel of the National Energy Board (NEB).’ So Harpers government approved it in 2014, how can Justin just veto it?
Were the 209 conditions met by Enbridge or not? If they were how does Justin get to nix it? The feasibility study for this project was done in 1998, this was 18 years and how many millions or billions spent? All for nothing. Way to go Canada.

That’s when Harper threw Alberta under the bus trying to buy votes in BC. That was the extent of his fight to get re-elected. Appeasement.

The west needs to seperate from these mindless incompetents in Ontario and Quebec.
They nothing for us but make us poor!
Instead of bitching about it on here let’s put our heads together and come up with a feasible way to save western Canada and distance ourselves from their ridiculous destruction of the west!

if we all come together and give a big HEAVE HO, then we can push Trudeau out of office for the next election….

Only northern gateway was not given the green light. And your post is about that.
What a dumb post.
Rebel entertainment at a low set yet.

Brent he vetoed Gateway. It’s off the table.

Trudeau will waffle and delay the pipeline construction just like he will delay fighter aircraft procurement for DND.
He will procrastinate with vapid, mindless diatribe, blah blah, blah blah.
The truth is, he has given billions to the Islamic parasites in the UN, as well as sharia dictatorships such as Indonesia.
Since the budget will balance itself, this dipstick will continue to write checks on money we no longer have.

Alberta needs to take care of its own house before anything can happen. Papa Doc was opposed by Lougheed, but Baby Doc is cheered by Notley.

What I hope is a Kenney win in the other party from mine, then a leadership race in a united party where a dark horse introduces the concept of becoming the 51st State. Just to make the possibility known. Alberta has always had more in common with Montana than East of the lake head.

All that needs to be done is to toss Flakey Jeytee onto the compost heap of useless individuals, there to let him rot.

Not that he isn’t already rotten.

Just ban Trudeau and his regime from stepping foot on our soil. He’s NO longer welcome in western Canada. Same with nutley and her band of destroyers, they can still govern us, till the end of their mandate, but they’ll have to do it from somewhere else(which will make them a lame duck government). These dorks are all an enemy of freedom and democracy, so hence this day forward they are no longer welcome here. I’m sure we could find a lawyer to draft a cease and desist order for the federal government and an eviction notice to the NDP and all their disciples. If they wish to contest, fine, we will keep them tied up in court battles for ever.

Anyone know a lawyer with sand enough to give it a whirl?

I can easily come up with enough soldiers/patriots with the pluck to pull this off.

Just spitballin’ here.

I agree Elton Braun. They had to save face and throw in hundreds of more conditions, just to make the public think it will go forward. It’s all a lie, to make junior and liberals look good. Liars lie all the time, but especially the liberal and NDP governments. They are corrupt to the core!
commented 2016-11-30 17:17:07 -0500
It is no surprise that Justin is playing politics with Alberta Conservative ridings because Pierre did the same to Alberta.

The Liberals have always hated Alberta and have treated it badly, hence the reason the Liberals never win too many ridings in Alberta and never will.

And come May 2019, the NDP will see their party decimated, reduced to maybe one riding, the one in Edmonton near the University where all the communist wannabe professors live.

I still say the trans mountain pipeline won’t get built because there’s no way JT has the balls to stand up to the protesters and natives who are already out in full force since none of them seem to have a job or a life. Trudeau should hold a press conference or better yet address the nation on tv and intelligently (I know that’s asking a lot) explain how this will not adversely affect the environment and how the world still needs oil and then list off a whack of products that even protesters use which are made from oil. Then he needs to explain in no uncertain terms that hindering the construction of this pipeline in any way will not be tolerated and anyone who does will see jail time. Start handing out 1 year sentences until the protesters are either all in jail or gone home.

It’s Librano tradition – shafting Alberta ridings that vote against them, been like that since 1905 – Bruderheim being established in 1908 has a long memory concerning Fed Lib riding patronage.

The last shot at Anti-Liberal risings in AB was when Chretien moved CFB Calgary to a Liberal-friendly riding. Same contempt for Albertans, it’s genetic in the Laurentian elite who own the LPC. Albertans who vote for Fed-Libs are either masochists or trough guzzlers, there’s no third option or shades of gray where Librano contempt for Alberta is concerned.
