Alberta's Energy Minister is lying about that $33,000 China junket

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Alberta's NDP Energy Minister is going on a $33,000 trip to China.

Of course, Margaret McCuaig-Boyd insists this trip will build business relations between Alberta and China.

And of course, China is a big energy customer. Wouldn't it be great if she could persuade China to buy Canadian ethical oil rather than OPEC oil?

But that's not what's going to happen, because as we all know, the Alberta NDP hates the province's oil industry. Premier Notley and everyone who works with her are against the Northern Gateway pipeline that would take Alberta's oil to the west coast to sell to China -- to the tune of $25,000,000 a day in revenues.

So why is McCuaig-Boyd going to China, but with no intention of selling them on her province's greatest resource?

READ Ezra Levant's bestselling books debunking environmentalist propaganda against the energy industry:
Groundswell: The Case for Fracking and Ethical Oil: The Case for Canada's Oil Sands

Alberta’s NDP is using a fake "public survey" to push climate change policy.

Why go to China to sell things that you have no intention of selling?
You are totally full of BS. Bet you just hate that they will do a better job of building international connections than the Conservatives did.

I have one small question for Alberta’s esteemed Energy Minister. How many business leaders, successful entrepreneurs and small business leaders are accompanying her on this historic odyssey? Give us your planned itinerary, who you’re meeting with and the subjects being discussed. Man, you can pack a lot of first class liv’n into a $33,000 junket, especially to a place like China where things are relatively cheap. Maybe she’s picking up a shipment of the latest in Commie fashion statements, the new-look Mao suits and massive sponge rubber hats the N’Korean generali’s affect, for the entire cabinet? Can’t wait for the Dippers to all appear in cabinet with their new soup-bowl haircuts and steely gazes, staring down the despicable capitalists and freedom lovers who’ve created so much work for Dear Leader, Motley Notley and her maggoty crew!!

Gee Ezra, why didn’t I read about this in the Edmonton Journal or see it on CBC Calgary??
Could it be they are embarrassed by the profligacy of the government they pimped on the public? Naaaaa, Journos have no sense of shame, can’t be that.

Deborah, I think you have a clear view of what it would be like under a NDP federal government.

Others like Jimmy think we are just fear mongering, but all we have to do is look at the historical record of the provincial NDP in the provinces they have governed and are currently governing to see just how Thomas would govern this country. The facts are on our “fear mongering” side.

The NDP cannot take the PM chair for the sake of Canada, in defiance of the leftie socialists / communist wannabes.

Peter Netterville – the amount of damage will be dependent upon Tom being elected federally. I think that whether he loses or not, he will still attack AB, because he hates capitalism. It isn’t oil that he and his ilk hate, it’s the opportunities provided by a capitalist system that communists hate. They want to deny the people any opportunity, to improve the lot of the majority. I hope people vote for PM Harper, or our standard of living will drop like a rock!

Deborah said, " She is pathetic, and it will get much worse in AB, before we can boot this liar and her cubs to the curb."

Undoubtedly, but just how much damage will be wrought on the good people of Alberta before that time.

Darryl Teskey – she and her “cradle of children” truly underestimate Albertans in the private sector. She is a labour lawyer, so her mentality is the same as the union hacks. She is immature, and the more she tries to hide, the more we know the hand that she is about to play. She is being dishonest with us, and we have seen what happens when they try to play the people. Tom will not win federally, even though she has spent all of her time, bowing down to his control, and working at getting him elected. She is pathetic, and it will get much worse in AB, before we can boot this liar and her cubs to the curb.

DEBORAH GRAUPNER She seems to be buddies with wynne in ontario, Looks up to her no doubt, wind power is at most useless as it cannot power a city, everywhere they put them up a big megawatt gas turbine has to go in to add to the grid because wind is an expensive way to go. Wynne has all but destroyed ontario, they now have the highest power in north america, and wonder why manufacturing is leaving ? notley has the exact same plans for alberta, gov subsudies for wind power and expensive power for all albertans. She wants to shut down coal power in alberta ?? what does she plan on replacing it with, nuclear is the only thing that will do it, windmills pixie dust and promises from notley will not. Wind is expensive and unreliable, solar is very expensive, not worth installing on a home due to the fact it would take 70 years to pay out. Not to mention battery replacment, She will be gone in four years but will do major damage in the time she is in power. The gov workers will expand at a huge rate, the next party to take power will have some major cuts to do for sure to get the bloated gov under control. And yes you are correct she seems to dislike the private sector because she cannot overlord over us and doesnt know what to do to control us. She is in for a rude wakeup soon when things get even worse in alberta and her blame the other guy doesnt fly with the pissed off albertans. Still cannot find anyone who will admit voting for her LOL

And does anyone want to bet, that the next provincial election will revert back to set election dates, so that she can further drag Albertans further down the poverty hole.

Wind power!!!!! Duh,slap to my head, I got to stop thinking like a conservative and start thinking anti bird . My bad.
commented 2015-10-09 11:49:10 -0400
Darryl Teskey – she is lying and she is stupid! It is evident that she has her ears plugged, and won’t listen to the public. She looks down her arrogant nose at anyone in the private sector, because she cares not for those who actually pay the bills in the province. She ignores the majority at her own peril. Tom will not win federally, he is also a liar, and is quite the idiot on a world stage.

Notley and company have no clue, It takes eight to ten years to engineer build and bring on steam any new refinery or upgrader. They are not off the shelf things like she seems to think. Who in there right mind would build one right now, she doesnt even have a budget let alone know what the long term royalties will be for any company choosing to build here. She will be gone in four years as they are already falling on to the favorite lefty thing to do, BLAME SOMEONE ELSE FOR EVERYTHING. It was all so simple during the election she had all the solutions. Now it appears she was either lying or just plain stupid, not sure which.

@dave BAINARD – Ever wonder why China is the largest manufacturer of solar panels and wind turbines while still building nukes at unprecedented numbers? I know why. They know the Americans, Canadians and Europeans are all suckers and buying these very inefficient, non-transportable sources of power to combat “climate change”, which the Chinese don’t give two hoots about. They see a market for these goods and they are more than happy to fleece the west whenever they get a chance. The Chinese always hussle for quick buck and we all know a sucker is born everyday. Thanks to Al Gore.

The NDP are like pigs at the trough. They know they are a one-term government and they are going to make good use of their time in office living it up on the taxpayer’s expense. What do they care?
commented 2015-10-09 11:06:10 -0400
I think she went their to line up those grotesque bird killer windmills. And then I think she will do what Winnie did, and will gut any authority on the municipal level.

The NDP has learned from Obama: Maintain a false facade while sabotaging the fossil fuel energy industry.
commented 2015-10-08 22:49:47 -0400
She’s obviously going for the buffet.
commented 2015-10-08 22:43:02 -0400
Her junket may not have anything to do with oil. Perhaps she’s going over there to cut a deal on solar panels and wind turbines. China is the worlds largest manufacturer of both.

Boom lightbulb!! You know how nutley wants to build a new refinery? Well I remember reading some obscure article in some obscure magazine maybe a year ago, it was during those protests on the northern gateway pipeline by Suzuki and his ding bats. Anyway this guy was trying to talk the BC government into letting him build a refinery on the coast, his reasons were that if there was a spill then gasoline would evaporate and would be easier to clean up than the raw product. He claimed that he was backed by the Chinese bank and that they would fully fund the project. In the article he mentioned that the Chinese didn’t care one way or another if it was refined or not as long as the got the product shipped. Could this be that the nutley crew is wanting the Chinese to build a refinery in Alberta? Hmmmmm

James Barnes, you might be onto something, it sure smells fishy. I think that the Chinese own the 3rd and 4th largest companies in Fort Mac. I think that the ndp may have been summoned to China for a face to face not to screw with their interests in Alberta. This dumb broad will shit her pants and start writing out cheques that we can’t cash.
commented 2015-10-08 19:16:51 -0400
Interesting…..China did acquire a large amount of oil sands property. The NDP want to shut it down. Do we have to pay for the NDP to grovel to China because they don’t want to develop the oil sands? What else is there?
Maybe we have to pay China to not develop the oil sands. Wouldn’t that be a hoot…!
commented 2015-10-08 19:04:19 -0400
Perhaps she is also tasked by Nutley with preparing the groundwork for getting an Alberta Peoples Militia organized to replace the present colonialist RCMP run “Provincial Police”. Plenty of expert consultants available in Beijing with foreign cred to get things done quickly and at a good price.
commented 2015-10-08 16:04:20 -0400
this is simply a nd-pig at the money trough. There is NO POINT going to any asian country until we have the pipeline infrastructure in place to ‘sell oil’
commented 2015-10-08 15:13:43 -0400
Just spitballing here Ezra but does this trip have anything to do with suncor trying to buy syncrude shares from Canadian oil sands inc?

Margaret McCuaig-Boyd is a fat and unattractive pig. Often, old over weight women go to third world countries to pay the local boys to have sex. As gross as this sounds, VD rates amongst seniors spikes, but what they don’t do is break this VD spike out by gender. Old ugly women often go to the Carribean to get this done, but if taxpayers are covering costs, why not splurge, right Margaret McCuaig-Boyd you ugly fat pig???

Since Alberta says no to China’s oil, but Margaret McCuaig-Boyd still wants to travel, my guess is that Margaret McCuaig-Boyd will be carrying USD20 bills in her luggage and lots of them so the local boys can pick up some extra cash.

Disgusting pig Margaret McCuaig-Boyd – going for a gangbang. Now who else is named Margaret that likes gangbangs. Can’t remember. Better ask troodo.

Typical socialist mentality, right now the NDP think they are untouchable after winning the election, what they fail to see (greed) is that come next election they will be booted out and will never to be elected again. You cannot abuse your position, and worse of all abuse the people and expect to walk away unscathed. Look at what Bob Rae did in Ontario, and they have not even come close to being in power since and never will. Socialists destroy economies and the people they are to help, they are abusers of the people.
