More TransMountain pipeline expansion delays: Are Justin’s NEB changes the sequel to Pierre’s NEP?

I provide another update on the TransMountain pipeline expansion project. 

This week the federal government announced it would be delaying the decision by the National Energy Board for another four months after adding more conditions for energy projects going forward.

The delay is being justified in the name of the need for more consultation with First Nations community groups.

But, how many more consultations do we really need when it should be abundantly clear which First Nations have been bought and paid for by the Tides Foundation and various other environmental NGO’s?

You probably don’t know this but over 30 bands have already signed on in support of this project but since this support doesn’t fit the narrative, it doesn’t get media attention.

The debate about pipelines in the province of BC has been going on for close to four years now. We’ve had plenty of time for people to review available information and meanwhile, these delays are only exacerbating the problems faced by the energy industry and no consideration is given to the billions of dollars of private sector investment that would give a boost to our struggling economies.

One could be forgiven for seeing yesterday’s changes to the NEB as part 2 of Pierre Trudeau’s damaging National Energy Plan, which should concern all Canadians.

Great piece…it’s encouraging to see a young person telling the right side of the debate….

I believe that the only option is to separate this country at the Manitoba Ontariowe border. This would have the effect of the west being free of the eastern freeloaders, the CBC, the yoke of the east controlling the west as has been the case for over 100 years. It also would make the east eventually to go to work and develop their own resources.

I am tired of these braindead sons of bitches holding up the western resources on the failed altar of climate change. The whole fraud being perpetrated is a way to tax us to death and for what. Even if climate change is true we in Canada only are 1.5% of world and anything we do will not make any difference. Any predictions Gore and company have made have a failure rate of 100% which in any sane persons mind proves their corruption.

The only thing we can hope for is that when the economy falls apart, and it will under these fools, that more Canadians will wake up and vote these insane environmentalists out of office in the next election. In the mean time it’s going to hurt all of us financially but it seems that only when voters start to feel the pain in their bank accounts will they decide that this governments policies just don’t make any sense.

I frequently see the progressive left claiming Canada has to do more and better to protect the environment yet I rarely see any rebuttal such as WHO THE HELL ELSE IN THE WORLD IS DOING MORE OR BETTER THAN CANADA IS?

More proof that Liberalism is a mental disorder.

The majority of Canadians chose these asshole liberals – four years of hell follows. No do overs.

Nicely done Canada. And great timing too. Deflationary depression is at our doorstep.

So again, no do overs. But next time, when you have a choice between and economist and a low IQ camp councilor, go with the economist next time. Okaaaaaaaaayyyy???

The new government will just increase the consultation time until the CO2 emissions caused by all the debating passes their arbitrary level causing an immediate cancellation of any application. This is a classic example of the loony left. If anyone should happen to fart in one of the meetings it would just speed up the refusal
