Trudeau FINALLY responds to Fort McMurray fire by creating emergency “committee” — that ALREADY exists

Rebel Staff
 

I was delighted to see this press release from the Prime Minister’s office. Screaming heading: "Prime minister announces action on Alberta wildfires.” OK, finally. It’s been more than a week.

What's his plan?

"The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today announced the creation of a new ad hoc Cabinet committee to coordinate federal efforts to help the thousands of Canadians affected by the wildfires that raged through Northern Alberta in May of 2016.”

Great. A committee of politicians. To coordinate efforts. More than a week after the emergency, when most of the urgent work has already been done.

But hang on. There already IS a cabinet committee for public emergencies.

Oh, and Justin Trudeau himself is its chair.

That committee has been operating for months — we think. Who knows — maybe Trudeau had to cancel, because he was doing an important boxing demonstration, or holding a push up contest...

Just another empty gesture so it looks like he actually gives a …..

Yeah thanks Hero, now go back to your Dr Suess.

Sounds like more tax dollars going to waste to me. What a LOSER!!!

How much more of this amateurism must we be subjected to?
Unfortunately, he was not raised to actually ‘consider’ others, just to know they are out there to serve him.
Since he lacks work experience, no wonder why he doesn’t know what’s happening in the office where he is [supposed to be] working.
Maybe he and Sophie should be practicing a bit more humility and compassion for Albertans.

Well, of course, Emperor Justpoleon cannot go into Fort Mac all by his little ole lonesome, can he? He needs to be surrounded by neophytes, hence the committee! He is sure to receive the adulation and fawning that his wee narcissistic heart craves! Hope he takes along that “bubble” to protect himself! Would not want him to get any soot in that ink black hair, would we?

Lets get the new tech to fight these fires, not new committee’s. I am pressing the government to adopt new tech “The Guardian System” within Canada which utilizes cargo planes to drop liquid on fires and get them under control before another Fort McMurray happens again. Not enough planes and did you know that no water drops can be done currently at night ? With the guardian system this can be done. Please see the Guardian Article here :

Cameron Robock. Since you may be new or at least have a new name did you check to see that 600 Rebels volunteered to go to Fort McMurray and help clean up the mess? How do you know what individuals have done to support the relief effort? The provincial and federal government deserve more than a poltical bashing. What do they deserve? Well, if you get some tar and feathers I will advise on the next step.

Rebels donated over 159k to the Red Cross. That is pretty “positive and constructive”.

And of course this commitee will have to be composed of 50% women…after all it IS 2016.

@cameron Robock….the bashing of Harper never ceased crisis or no crisis…..it’s payback time. So suck it up buttercup.

Unless it is effecting Muslims, or Quebce, he isn’t really interested. If a mosque had burned he would have been there 5 days ago with a hose.

More bashing coming from a party line. People are in need and all I see from rebel is bashing. Nothing positive or helpful. Very negative veiw of life if you have to political bash someone during a crisis.

Trudeau in charge of the committee… Oh joy! Crayola Crayons and colouring books by the thousands for the children of Fort Mac, along with an instructional Bluray to show children how to colour featuring the PM! But of course he will order DVD players…

Next, summer clothes for all! After all, Canadians need to know how to endure the heat of summer and specialists will be sent to instruct them on how to stay cool (and fashionable).

Then he will get down to the important stuff. You know, how the environment will be affected by rebuilding Fort Mac, or should it be rebuilt. Of course the carbon footprint of heavy machinery, hammers and screw drivers will be taken into consideration. How will Canada be looked upon by the world if we don’t take this into consideration and make it a priority.

But will there be funds to rebuild? We are now running a $30 billion deficit when last year we had a $7.5 billion surplus. Part of that deficit is what we gave away $8.5 billion to help other countries (for infrastructure and the Battle Against Climate Change!) so we won’t have funding for Fort Mac. Oh what will we do! The best our Fearless Leader could do is make a match program for up to $100 million (oh how generous!). How many billions of tax dollars does Fort Mac generate for the nation? How much money is available for unvetted foreigners coming here?

Mexican “refugees”, before visa requirements, cost us $300,000,000 in 1996. Now the visa requirement will be dropped to impress the Mexican president when he comes visit later this year. I’m certain that The Committee Chairman will have funds for Mexican “refugees” first, Fort Mac second.

Oh yes, Smarties and M&Ms for all!

Sunni Sunny Ways, folks.

Justin’s to do priority list on the Fort McMurray fire.
1. Get Gerry to organize a committee of one to conclude this was caused by climate change.
2. Blame everything on the oil production companies.
3. Congratulate all first nations, Syrian refugees and minorities who supported fire relief efforts.
4. Go to Fort Mac for selfies and wear the native headdress again.
5. Ask Gerry if we should get David and the Suzukis to cobble together a documentary on the above.
6. Oh yeah, almost forgot. Increase Liberal voter base in Fort Mac by blaming Harper for everything.
7. Head off to Whistler for a well deserved weekend. See ya later suckers.

Never mind there not being a single original thought in that empty head, his minders (Dion et al.) are complete idiots.

But doing something tangible for western wildfires might take away much needed funding for Junior’s consort’s committee to coordinate her social schedule.

They the Byzantium royals of Canada with no job but to front the true governors’ of Canada agenda and look good doing it. Just like Byzantium had strong men in charge in times of weak emperors.

Government Committees get bonuses. That is why he created another one.
