“Liberals to blame” for GE Peterborough plant closure, 350+ lost jobs

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Incessant delays and the Liberals refusal to support the Energy East pipeline have just cost 358 jobs in Peterborough, Ontario.

General Electric announced the closure of its Peterborough operations September 2018.

In 2014, GE had announced it would be adding 250 new jobs in Peterborough to build motors for TransCanada's Energy East pipeline.

But instead of a pipeline, GE and the rest of Canada got a series of artificial delays and excuses.

In January 2016, the Federal Liberals added even more hurdles and hoops for Canadian energy projects to jump through. Then Team Trudeau refused to vote for a Conservative motion to support Energy East.

This sent a chilling message to investors that Canada was no longer open for business.

Then Quebec’s Liberal government asked for a deferral of Energy East until the National Energy Board is "modernized" (with social justice nonsense). The Ontario Energy Board asked for a delay, too.

Maybe these anti-oil Liberal governments will notice how pipeline delays are hurting the entire country now that it's happening in a Liberal riding like Peterborough.

Liza Rosie..That’s how the moderate liberalist does their job/agenda..Wear down the non liberalist with lies..insults..catch phrases..HRC…violence..etc..on and on..that’s all they got..That’s what we are witnessing here and around the World…“Hang on Baby”..it’s not going to be easy..Thought I would use words from a 70’s poster to cheer you up! :)….Was it hang on?…Or hang in there baby?

Drew Wakariuk…You are 100% correct about the “Conservatives are more liberal than the Liberals”.

Jamie McMaster, you do have a point! Yep, she does look vacant!

I think vacant is the better word, TAMMIE.

Lieberals: Communists led by dictraitors! Peterborough is Liberal? Although I experienced unemployment several times under the Liberal Gov’t of PET, perhaps justice has been done and Lieberal “commitment” to the “Middle Class” has finally been exposed for what it is……NONE! The ideological bent of the communists occupying Ottawa is revealed for what it is. Destroy the economy, create unrest enough to allow Jihadi Justin to declare an emergency and take over as dictator!

Jamie MacMaster,

I would say that the problem is that conservatives don’t realize or understand that they live in a liberal country and it’s been that way forever – hence the very reason why the liberals have been in power for the majority of Canada’s history.

If conservatives are so unhappy with Canada, perhaps Alberta can separate or maybe move to Texas, but the fact of the matter is that Canada will NEVER be conservative.

Now, as for the topic, it isn’t really the Liberals’ fault. You see, they’re just symptoms of the real problem: that 64 to 68 percent of the electorate that continues to vote for the likes of turdo la doo, the NDP, the Greenies, or Conservative twerps like Scheer or Paddy Brown. So relax folks, you just can’t do much about that degree of terminal stupidity.

Tell you what, if you’re not already there, move to the bush. Build a bunker and stock up on bullion, bullets, bottled water, beans, and bully beef. Did I tell you that today’s Sesame Street has been brought to you by the letter B? Oh yeah, beer…… and butter for your popcorn. Gonna be a hell of a show!

LIZA, if you stop, and everyone else stops being their angel-in-the-centerfold, the pudd-pullers will go away.

Course, the other way to look at it I guess, is that they sure as hell help Ezra’s e-traffic.

Liza Rosie,

No.

If you can’t handle opposing view, holding The Rebel accountable and banter/mocking here and there that I receive as well, then perhaps you should leave.

Damn, Sarah jimmy, you are an ignorant little prick! Why you are not turfed is beyond me. This is not free speech its just insults and abuse, on and on , it is all you offer. You are going to bad mouth the Rebel no matter where you do it so why not be forced to do it somewhere else? Free speech you say? Crap, should a wife beater be allowed to beat his wife because free speech? Should I put up with an ignorant bottom feeder sitting in my living room because free speech. I would throw the bugger out on his ass and that is all you deserve, Go insult, squeal and complain somewhere else.

James Scott,

This coming from someone that thinks The Rebel is actual news and not just a platform for fear mongering , hyperbole, bigotry and hate.

Ask the people who have left The Rebel, like the co-founder.

Because of the wealth of business experience and knowledge the likes of McKenna, Butts and Trudeau share, they must have accidentally overlooked the fact; when there are roadblocks after roadblocks thrown in front of entrepreneurs for no other reason than politics, the entrepreneurs simply move on and invest elsewhere.
I doubt there have been enough Trudeau supporters hurt enough (financially) to cost him the next election. They quite enjoy the anti Trump rhetoric, the cozying up to Sharia, the silly parades, the CBC spin. (Christ sakes, I’ve actually spoken with some people who thought the Khadr payoff was worthy). They really don’t see how Trudeau’s policies are hurting Canada. Once Trudeau Land realizes their Country’s economy cannot run on 142 character brain power, immature photo bombs and 4to5 months of Pride Parades, things may change.
Until then, the way I see it, we must hunker down and keep educating the masses until they realize what a complete fool is at the helm of this ship called Canada.
If you are the type of voter that takes everything the MSM and CBC tells you at face value, you are probably a Liberal. If you use critical thinking and are not easily swayed by BS you are ‘surely not’ a Liberal.

We should establish a new national holiday – we could call it TROLL HUNTING DAY.
Once a year – maybe on Dominion Day since this is now Justin’s post national country – the state issues tags for trolls, the fee would be about the same as for a mule deer tag.
You’ve got to track down and collect the ears of the troll – collateral damage will lead to disqualification. Whomever has the most ears at the end of the day wins…of course we would all win…except for the trolls, but then they’re already a bunch of losers anyway, creepy little retard loser trolls…
When hunting ungulates, the ‘kill’ it self is anticlimactic, it’s all in the hunt. I wonder if troll hunting would be the same…
Complete and unadulterated contempt, contempt for creepy little retard trolls like you Jay.

The Federal Liberal and Ont. Prov. Liberal pimple will come to a head early next year. Not even the CBC can hide all of this bad news now that the open borders problem is being shared by Ontario.
Quebec might get mad and vote to separate and become One United Haiti.

25 years ago when progs and Liberals announced they were leading us into a service based economy, left unsaid was that this was code for deindistrialization and the end of energy self sufficiency as globalists send industrial jobs off shore and buy foreign energy – to the working man it meant going from 30-20 dollar an hour production jobs to minimum pay “McJobs” at Walmart or home Depot – we see this death of the working class continuing unabated by either federal party.

Back from a holiday in the bush, which urban ‘progressives’ say no longer exists. Great to see Rebel and Ms. G-R still socking it to them. I think the current ‘environmentalists’ would not have a clue of real environment and the role extractors play. For example, Berengia’s ecosystem is only known through placer miners who discover all the near fossils. Even the U of Alaska attributes the knowledge of these miners to the knowledge of Berengia.
