Vancouver’s Mayor Gregor Robertson is a far left politician with a substantial hold on municipal politics in the city. He came to Ottawa recently to tell the government to give a definitive “no” to the Kinder Morgan expansion, regardless of what the National Energy Board has said.
Contrary to the evidence, Robertson believes Vancouver’s economy is all about being “green” when the facts show that one of the biggest economic drivers is the activity related to natural resources in the Port of Vancouver.
Watch as I provide the facts that show that Robertson is mistaken in his belief that unicorns and fairy dust power everything in Vancouver.
So far, Natural Resource Minister Jim Carr seems to think he’s under some obligation to be swayed by Robertson’s fantasies instead of listening to the NEB, demonstrating once again that the left are very selective when they accuse conservatives of not listening to the experts.
