SK's Brad Wall speaks out on Alberta/Quebec Energy East pipeline deal

Rebel Staff

Saskatchewan premier Brad Wall is concerned at how much his province has to lose due to the Energy East pipeline deal being forged by the premiers of Alberta and Quebec.

Wall reiterates that Canada's ethical oil is morally superior to OPEC conflict oil, which Quebec already imports by pipeline without any political or environmental conditions.

He likes to joke that if Western Canada sent transfer payments to Quebec and Ontario via pipeline, both provinces would discover a new enthusiasm about them.

Who would have thought ten years ago that Canada's best premier, overseeing the best economy, would be a free market guy from Saskatchewan, and that Alberta's premier would be an anti-oil socialist?

Robert – and ruins our agricultural land, to appease the environmental freaks, at our expense. Does anyone wonder why they want us to stop eating beef, it’s because there won’t be any grazing land left, after they destroy the one thing they say they are for. What a bunch of hypocrites, and opportunists. They are flocking to AB like the parasites they are, gleeful at the chance of slaying the golden goose. They are a sad and pathetic group of leaders, and I use the word leaders loosely here.

It’s a shakedown and theft of Alberta resources, and Notley is a traitor. As far as wind goes, it nothing but a ripoff subsidy scam that fleeces the taxpayer, consumer and drives business away.

Notley is a disgrace to hard working Albertans, and not even close to being a real leader, she is follower, and union butt kisser, since her hubby is in the union, he is coaching her. Tom is the one calling the shots in Alberta right now. He thinks us stupid “peasants” don’t know this, but he is going to get a big surprise. As painful as it has having that Marxist Notley in charge, I think that the people of Alberta, or should I say most, will not be voting for this fake federally. Not after seeing how Notley has been under performing. The biggest mistake she is making, is underestimating the fact that most can’t stand her ideology. And the O&G she is planning on wiping out, is not going to bend over, just because she says so.

It was very troubling and sad to view the smirking and self-satisfied faces of the premiers of the begging provinces.

Common sense isn’t so common anymore.
I do love Rex, he is also an honest broker, no bull.
Notely accusing Brad Wall of showboating , made me laugh out loud.
I would love to see a Premiers debate. Wall would wipe the floor with the likes of Notely, Wynne and Couillard.

Some brilliant comments on the recent Premiers conference by Rex Murphy in the National Post:
Rex Murphy: Is Brad Wall the only premier who cares about 2015, not just 2050?:
Rex notes that Notley had the gall to accuse Mr. Wall of “showboating"! Rex retorts to such an inane comment, “‘Showboating’ might better describe holding Canada’s major job-creating industry hostage to the ideology of an aggressive and debate-intolerant global warming industry.” Rex concludes, “There is something seriously illogical here, and it is pleasing to see one premier with the daring to state how very illogical it all is. If he’s around in 2050, we should make him prime minister”. You’ve got to love Rex Murphy one of the few “seriously normal” clear-thinking journalistic commentators around.

Brad Wall better figure something out real soon – he’s on his own in shark-infested waters. I wish him luck.

Robert DUnning – I am one of your “eastern scum” and I support Brad Wall for PM in 2020.
commented 2015-07-17 18:29:37 -0400
Geez Robert, cut it out. What do you think the chances are of Wall running in this election? None.
Maybe 2020 if he can be encouraged, as we need someone strong to pick up the baton eventually.
Lets put our power behind Harper for crying out loud. Geez.
commented 2015-07-17 18:21:45 -0400
please harper for the good of the west step down. we need wall more than ever. if the eastern scum don’t support you wall then it is a fantastic time to break this country up. they go their way into oblivion[yipee] and we are go are way to prosperity and security for all in the west.

R C Herman said, “Not very smart!”

Yup. That defines Notley for sure

Everyone here need to recognize that all socialist governments have access to pixie dust for creating the economic activity they need to enact their socialist plans.

Liza – chilling yet accurate comment.

It really looks as though they are intentionally doing everything in their power to break everything down and apart, so that they can build their totalitarian system unfettered.

The prestigious economic publication, Journal of Economic Literature, dubbed the period from 1980 to 2005 “the age of Milton Friedman.” Harvard University economist Andrei Schleifer described this era of greater reliance on free markets and privatization, as arguably the period of greatest economic advance for mankind in world history. It would be hard to argue against that. As freedom and free markets were on the march, more than 1 billion people worldwide, mostly in China and India, moved out of poverty. Tens of trillions of dollars of new wealth were created worldwide.

But the last decade could be described as the comeback of socialism. In response to the financial crisis, nations foolheartedly turned to central governments to steer them out of crisis. Government debt, spending and regulatory activity soared all across Europe and in the United States. The Keynesian model that government welfare spending as a “stimulus” came storming back in vogue — nowhere more so than in the United States.

Many countries, including Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal and France — as well as the United States — experimented with quasi-socialist governments. Now the bitter price is being paid.

This more than anything else explains why the world is twisting in financial turmoil in recent weeks. Not just Greece, but at least a half a dozen nations appear to be on the verge of bankruptcy because they can’t afford the social welfare states they have, and the bills are coming due. The socialists are getting hammered.

Will Canadians choose to go down this Socialist Road to Despair next October ?
Justin and Tom know the WAY to Greece . . . just ask them ! ! !

One would think that being a socialist, that likes to spend money on social programs, Notley would support any activities that would generate more revenue for her spending plans. That includes new pipeline capacity that the province’s oil and gas sector desperately requires in order to generate the revenue that she needs. The fact that, as premier of Alberta, she sides with the environmental movement and opposes these pipelines puts her in direct conflict with the best interests of Alberta, and her own interests as a socialist. Not very smart!

Brad Wall for PM in 2020!
commented 2015-07-17 11:43:55 -0400
Right on Zee !!

There should be more co-operation between provinces, not roadblocks. Instead of the country being all for one and one for all, it’s the exact opposite.

One province cannot give a specific province a special veto. If that is the case, we might as well dissolve the country … each province for themselves.

It seems to be going that route anyway.
commented 2015-07-17 11:37:54 -0400
You see what those corrupt Lie-beral and NDP governments are doing to their provinces just think how much damage they will do to Canada if you are stupid enough to vote for them in the next federal election. The only way to get rid of these socialist is to take away the salaries and benefits and make them serve for free. Since when did politics become a life time job.

Put Saskatchewan’s lawyers to work by suing the Alberta’s government for lost revenue.

“get it done and let ’em howl” seems to be the way Notley is heading too.

Wynne is functioning in a dream world ….she thinks she’s Mahatma Gandhi….about to find out that pride commeth before the fall…interesting to watch Christie Clarke….her politics may be opposite mine but she is a politician not an activist like Wynne…and she cares what The People want. The tides may be changing and she will not just “get it done and let ’em howl” the way Wynne thinks she can get away with.

Federal jurisdiction, not PIG WYNNE’sontario thing or welfare bum kewbek’s thing.

National energy board? Remember it? Heard of transfer payments? It’s a shame when the Feds cut them back to pain in the as* people like PIG WYNNE and pepper couillard.

Jody: One wonders if this new hatch of kleptocrats even has the self preservation instinct of a parasite – unless perhaps the agenda IS to kill the host – and divide up the carcass. When parasite turns to predator/scavenger.

Couillard And Wynne need to remember that successful parasites don’t kill their host.

“Wall has to tell Ontario/Quebec that they will not get a dime of equalization from Saskatchewan if they block pipelines from the west. Not a dime.”

You are absolutely correct in your thinking…,
How is it that corrupt, lying, incompetent and deceitful levels of government can still reap rewards from the Fed’s??… (transfer payments)
How much longer until the Fed’s do not collect enough FROMHAVEPROVINCES because there just are not any “haves” to pass to the “have not’s”… ANYMORE!

The time has come to cut off or at a minimum reduce the amount of TP’s to these spendthrift and incompetent levels of OUR GOVERNMENTS!

Time to get out of Oz Dorothy (Canada)…
and get back to reality!

Would you ask Brad Wall if he would be willing to separate from Saskatchewan NWT border west, and lead a new country? No more liberal socialist political parties or union funded elections
commented 2015-07-16 21:32:55 -0400
Just think of how that kind of clear unfettered logic could turn things around, if only.

Can we clone Brad Wall? Seriously, even if it’s not a perfect copy, we’ll take him in Ontario.
