Why hasn't Mulcair condemned Linda McQuaig's call for an oil sands moratorium? The answer is obvious.

Rebel Staff
 

Star NDP candidate Linda McQuaig says that "a lot of the oil sands oil may have to stay in the ground if we're going to meet our climate change targets."

And remember: Mulcair has already said McQuaig will be a cabinet minister if he is elected PM. That's pretty scary.

(McQuaig only hates Canadian ethical oil, mind you; maybe you've seen that picture of her smiling and shaking hands with her hero, dictator Hugo Chavez, who she called a saint.)

So why hasn't Mulcair corrected her yet?

Because the NDP (and the Liberals) hate the pipelines.

For evidence, just look at what they've already done in Alberta.

The closer we get to election day, the more screaming, and stamping of feet, will increase from the left. They have already worked themselves into their “Harper frenzy”. Honestly, I can’t even listen to them anyone, because they make me sick, the way they try to blame Harper for every ridiculous thought that comes into their petty little heads. Or maybe I should say, their pointed little heads.

Nothing out of context. " may have to stay in the ground", from the mouth of any Canadian politician is an clear mandate to stop oil production in Canada. It is a threat.

Don’t be fooled Canadians. They will shut down the oilsands if the NDP or Liberals get elected. Remember what the first Trudeau did to Canada’s energy industry. It is even more guaranteed to shut down with the NDP. They will sidestep the issue and if they get elected. No more oil sands. Instead, business for Russia, Venezuela, and terrorist countries will improve. Understand the ethics of that.

The operative words were “may have to stay in the ground”. Love it when EL and all the other oil industry bought shills take comments out of context.

HotAir did not condemn, and that is very disturbing. What about Turdeau, did he do the right thing and condemn?

Richard said, "… then I will definitely award my vote to Justin Trudeau’s candidate Randy Boissonnault of Edmonton Centre . "

Richard, I hate to break it to you, but Trudeau is heavily influenced by communism and so are some of his advisors. The Liberal party is heading toward the curtailing of personal freedoms as well. However, I am sure you know this already.

Kelvin and Charles have a point about the need for separation. However, Liza does make a good point about we are stronger as a whole country. Oh, what to do … … …

Are you kidding? After slaving for 50 -70 hrs a week for 20 years to bring this industry to the highest standard in the world, some ditsy socialist Lexus sporting whore slanders the integrity? What does she have to stand on? Look, don’t fuck with us. We are focused and we get ancy when we get bored. We are armed to the teeth and we will engage in a revolt. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you. Climate change is just that. You can’t stop it

Nobody in their right mind really wants to split up Canada. We are a Nation and we are proud of that fact.
There is no reason for any any of us a to ever apologize, to anyone , ever again. WE have been there and done that.
If anyone still feels like a Victim than you are free to leave. No hard feelings. Don’t ever return.
Yes…..we have the NDP ,those socialist bums that would shut the whole damned Country down , except they still need a few capitalist swine around to create wealth and keep funnelling loot into that ever grasping sink-hole that they pretend is Governance.
I know what I would like . I would like to make Lobby Groups obsolete I don’t like politicians handing out my tax money to whatever business pays the most bribes. .
commented 2015-08-11 02:46:44 -0400
Liza, if BC and Saskatchewan would entertain the idea to join with Alberta , that would be the only way in my opinion, that the west could separate. I don’t know if you’ve heard but Brad Wall has already declared that he wants to slash the transfer payments to Ottawa and allocate that moneys elsewhere. He too sees the writing on the wall that it is futile to keep handing cash to provinces that in no way want to help themselves.
I think that in itself is a very telling sign that his province is fed up . This by the way is only if the ndp or liberals take power. I don’t understand your fear in that we would be “sucked up”, by whom?

Here is information on Mulcair that feeds into his hidden agenda – - https://ifyouknewthomas.wordpress.com/2015/07/24/tom-mulcairs-environmental-record-should-be-no-source-of-pride/. Mulcair is trying to play the electorate as a fool by deflecting off his record as environment minister or comments made by his candidates or just overall where his party stands on the environment.

The joke will be on Canada if the NDP are able to form a government as business investment will go out the window when you have radical people like McQuaig speaking on policy. Linda McQuaig statement are so incoherent, especially when oil sands are low GHG contributor as compared to coal (US and China).

PETER NETTERVILLE" Richard, then you must obviously support the Conservatives"
I did buy a Provincial Conservative membership soon after buying an NDP membership during the time both parties had thier Provincial leadership races – I have since resigned my membership from the NDP after being discriminated by the MP Linda Duncan and have let my Conservative membership lapse after losing the Alberta election… By the way my I voted NDP in the Provincial election.

PETER NETTERVILLE: I’m voting for the Green Party’s Elizabeth May this fall as a courtesy vote because she read my petition in the House of Parliament last December 2014 when the NDP MP Linda Duncan refused to read the petition that I personally collected in her riding in 2011. More about this… YouTube : https://youtu.be/h6Uttp2zt40

Also if the Edmonton/ Center Green party candidate is caught hanging out with the local Marxist Leninist/ Communists as did other Green, NDP candidates and MP Linda Duncan during anti C51 rallies then I will definitely award my vote to Justin Trudeau’s candidate Randy Boissonnault of Edmonton Centre .

Communists hate our freedoms and FREEDOM OF THE PRESS.

We can’t separate anything. If we do we will be invaded and assimilated. Divided we will fall. Sad, I’d like to give it to the east right now myself, but there is no way. It is just silly talk, dangerous talk. We have to find a way to be united. Any separation will be suicide for the country, and any individual province who manages to set themselves free will be sucked up so fast it will make your head spin. Someone tell me please how it could work. I am all ears. We don’t have that many guns. Nice daydream, never going to happen. Can’t.
commented 2015-08-11 01:20:26 -0400
Charles, thumbs up on your comment. I believe that if Alberta separates BC will either join or follow.
I don’t like to think that Canada can or will be broken up, but under the circumstances I fully support this idea, because even if things got better in Alberta, or I should say when things get better in Alberta, the east, namely Ontario and Quebec, will eventually suck it dry. This will be especially true if Mr. Harper – God forbid – looses the election.
Better that that becoming another Greece.
commented 2015-08-11 01:18:41 -0400
This is just another test for Canadian voters, particularly those from the west.

The test?? HOW FKG STUPID ARE THE MAJORITY OF CANADIAN VOTERS? VOTE FOR THESE COMMUNIST PIG LIBERAL/ENN-DEE-PEE and watch your financial world get destroyed.

Charles, if Mulcair wins the election I’m sure that western separatist talk will kick into high gear, I hear it circulating around in southern Alberta already.
Joan have you guys out east not heard this story from the msm? It’s been on the radio here out west all day, every news break. The notley crew has not responded as of yet though.
commented 2015-08-11 00:43:28 -0400
Pass this on folks. Everybody should be aware of this. I’m afraid someone has left the barn door wide open!
commented 2015-08-11 00:35:09 -0400
I really believe it is time to start the Alberta separation party.
Take the pipelines south through Taber and the Chin area to the US border, cross into the states at Montana and then head to the Seattle hub or Tacoma hub and start selling our oil, I know this could take place.

Then have a separation party start pushing to leave this country… Because of the comments I have been reading on this site, anyone that lives in the east (from what I’ve been reading) couldn’t give shit about Alberta.

We started the separation party in the 80’s and it was really starting to take off… Why don’t we start it again.
commented 2015-08-11 00:17:33 -0400
Richard, then you must obviously support the Conservatives, because the NDP and Liberal do not support the equality of all people, the say they do, they preach they do, but their actions scream hypocrisy.
commented 2015-08-10 23:41:48 -0400
Mulcair has peaked too soon in the polls. His numbers will now wane and Trudeau’s will rise. Canadians will hear, not only from Ezra but from Harper, stories like this one and will recoil from voting for a party with anti-democracy elements.

This bodes well for a Conservative win. Too soon to say if it can possibly be a majority win but one thing everyone should have learned by now and that is that PM Harper is a superb strategist, including in the art of winning elections.
commented 2015-08-10 23:38:36 -0400
PETER NETTERVILLE, I support any Canadian politician who believes all individuals as equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.

For weeks I went through a coolong off period waiting for Mulcair’s NDP to respond to the discrimination and humilationn I endured being singled out as a white male, non Muslim, accused of being a threat to Muslim women inside a public meeting and told to leave the public meeting that was open to men and women. A meeting that was in part to celebrate the Rachel Notley Government recent Win in Alberta – I now have responded with my own campaign sub-titled “900 Reasons not to Re-Elect NDP MP Linda Duncan” under the heading “Fear is at the root of power seeking”

Canada produces 1.48% of the global man made CO2.

The oilsands produce approx 14% of that 1.48%. That is 0.2072% of global man made emissions.

That is a phenomenally small amount of CO2.

Then considering the oilsands are surrounded by tens of thousands of hectares of boreal forest which drinks up CO2 like Jimmy and Terry guzzel the leftie koolaid, there is obviously no issue with the oilsands contributing any CO2 at all to the atmosphere … … if one is even concerned about the Global Warming scam.
