Anti-pipeline Bill C-69 just passed — here's what Liberals say it will do to jobs

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The Liberals' new “no more pipelines” Bill C-69 has just passed the Senate. But did anyone in the government ever analyze what this bill would do to the economy of Alberta?

Today, we have the answer to that question, I think.

Bill C-69 is a disaster for Canada’s oil patch and for any company even thinking about investing here. The new law extends timelines for project reviews and will allow just about any ill-informed anti-energy krank a seat at the table to complain about how pipelines are bad and mean.

The changes to regulation require new resource projects to be scrutinized according to “the intersection of sex and gender with other identity factors” and gives the Federal Environment Minister added discretionary power on deciding whether a project goes ahead or not.

It won’t be experts weighing the merits and risks of energy infrastructure anymore. Those decisions will now be in the hands of politicians like Catherine “Climate Emergency” McKenna.

The bill is really a “closed for business” sign to the world while our neighbors to the south are drilling, fracking, building pipelines and exporting at rates never seen before.

But did the Liberals even bother to examine whether this stupid new law hurts the economy of Alberta, where people of all gender identities need jobs immediately?

I have my speculations and an order paper question response that leads me to believe they didn’t.

The Liberals were asked for proof of any economic analysis and the Liberals are mandated to produce those records if they have them. They didn’t, leaving me to speculate that either the Liberals did the analysis and it didn’t turn out the way they’d hoped so they are sitting on it in breach of parliamentary rules.

Or they didn’t bother to do it at all.

I guess it’s up to the Liberals to tell us which one they are guilty of.

But, for the record, we’re submitting an Access to Information Request to the government to make sure. We want to know exactly what went on, and, if so, why the impact on Alberta’s oil and gas sector wasn’t even considered? We’ll keep you in the loop.

WHAT is the federal government doing about a pipeline that is running from Ontario, to Michigan USA, under five miles of water, through Lake Erie? This pipeline is 65 years old and 25 years past it’s prime, meaning it could break open at any time, causing the worst environmental disaster the world has ever seen. Where the pipeline is, would leak oil into the centre of the great lakes and with the current that flows past the pipeline, would spread oil through out the great lakes within one week! Making this problem impossible to clean-up and the cost would be in the BILLIONS! WHAT is Ottawa going to do once this happens, say we were unaware of the problem, when it has been brought to their attention, back in 2015???

I think Trudeau said it all, when he address the country, during our 150 year celebrations, when he neglected to include Alberta, when speaking and thanking the provinces. Was this a plan in the making to disallow Alberta in Canada or to strike a movement to eliminate Alberta from Canada and help support more projects in his province of Quebec???

This idiot’s father did a great job of trying to alienate the west but didn’t succeed. This tool seems bent on finishing the job. The engine that drives the economy is energy. Not solar energy or wind farms or ocean tides. It’s fossil fuels plain and simple. We are the only country in the world who’s government doesn’t get it. Now to make the process even harder (and more ridiculous) gender is now a consideration? Will there be quotas that require 50% females? Pipeline work is a job requiring special skills, is physically demanding and is done in extreme weather and mostly in isolated areas. There is a reason that women don’t gravitate to these jobs – it doesn’t interest them. Or maybe they don’t want to be part of the uncouth group of transient workers that the PM referred to last year. What a tool.

James: We DO have a real man on our side, the leader of the Peoples Party of Canada, Maxime Bernier. Our PPC party will make sure our resources are set free of their bonds and poured back into our economy.
The far left know exactly what C-69 will do to Canada and that’s what they want- the Leap Manifesto. Give it a read & you will see immediately what’s coming our unfortunate way unless we fight back.

Unfortunately if you are white and live in Alberta the UN globalist Islamic terrorist Laurentian elites in Ottawa have written you and your families off as the enemy.
You are slated for mass population replacement from third world migrants.
The Somalian Islamofacist terrorist Hussan and Trudeau are even bragging about it in the open. The CBC is laying the groundwork by broadcasting anti white stories non stop every day of the week.
We have NO politicians on our side as 95% of them are weaklings traitors and cowards.
We are in a war

Why not make a deal with the USA for Canada to join them in a positive prosperous amalgamation? Trudeau and his UN masters are in panic mode because of the exposure that their agenda is getting. If Canada did such a move we could tell the Trudeau’s and the likes of them to f@ck off and don’t come back now ya hear!

The US is on their way to recover… let’s join them going forward and have positive and goodwill thoughts while we forget the Trudeau liberal globalist invasion that the goof put into overdrive.

I have to disagree with your stated premise Sheila, I’m quite certain the Gliberals knew very well what the economic and social impact of their ‘Alberta Policies’ would be – before they made those policies…the outcomes being pretty much what they are…death and destruction and crippled for decades!
Some would call that TREASON!

“Seperation would have an opposite effect unless Alberta joins the U.S. while Trump is in office.”

And I don’t see a problem with joining the States or going independant at all. It is sure a hell of alot better than having our Province and economy utterly ruined because of those useless,uncaring,traitorous liberal jackasses! Trump is more than likely to win a second term so I would rather take my chances with Trump than Trudy anytime. Also,going independant would be hard,but at least we would be able to call our own shots and who’s to say Saskatchewan and Manitoba wouldn’t join us?

On a side note, Kenney should cut off equalization and transfer payments to send a message.

Andrew the he/she: follow the funded money trail to Trudeau,McKenna,Suzuki,CBC,Tzeporah Berman,Tides Foundation,Open Society,and many others. It is great to have you show up on this site so people can see first hand how fools like yourself are delusional and manipulated. You are not a free thinker but instead a very misled puppet!! It must suck to be someone like you,let me guess you were probably the last kid to always get picked and you probably always got a medal even though you finished last.

One of Solomon’s arguments is somehow that Alberta could separate and close its borders without hurting itself more than it hurts other places.

He’s just an oil-funded shill anyway. Follow the money, who’s funding his think tank?

Sheldon said, " Peter: have a look at columnist Lawerence Soloman he did a piece on the benefits of Alberta separating and why Canada would be in big trouble if we did."

It is not the problems Canada would have if Alberta separated that concerns me but the problems Alberta would have if they did.

It is obvious the rest of Canada would suffer as a result of Alberta’s separation, not the least in losing the billions Alberta transfers to Ottawa for Provincial Equalization, but how would separation help Alberta get its’ oil and gas to tide water, which is Alberta’s main income.

The liberals are pretty confident that they are going to win the coming election. So you just know that the whole system has been rigged. I’m looking forward to Judgement Day when these traitors will be paying the eternal price for their crimes against humanity!

To Bad the federal government didn’t have the balls needed, when the USA forced it’s way into Canada and built it’s Alaskan pipeline, which is twined, with each pipe being four feet in diameter! With no environmental issues needed, no gender rights, no indigenous concerns tabled and last but not least, NO TAXES, MONIES, DISCOUNT’S EVER COLLECTED OR ASKED FOR FROM OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENTS???

The Liberal’s and the PC party, have been gutting Canada like a fish, for their parties political gain for the last CENTURY! Only difference today is, we have the Islamic state running the show, with LBGQT, putting their concerns forward to get the free government handouts, using the CLIMATE EMERGENCY as their excuse, to beat the rest of Canada into submission!!!

Alberta separation caused by Trudeau.

OPEC oil tankers selling oil to the east, billions of dollars and jobs leaving this country.
No tanker ban for them, no carbon tax for them, no gender assessment for them.
No Canadian taxes paid by them.

This is a direct assault on Canadian resources and will cripple our entire economy.
If we had the all the proposed pipe lines and were allowed to use our own resources we would be robust economy. Looking after all the people in need from seniors to vets.
Enough employment for all across this country.

We already own the trans Canada hwy run pipe lines and electrical etc. along it.
Why would we need to consult as Canada owns the right of way?

It is my belief that this is an attempt to devalue our resources so they can be sold off for penny,s on the dollar to friends of government. Once in the hands of the elites all regulations will be removed as it will then be in the national interest.

Killing Alberta’s economy is killing Canada’s. Without 25+ Billion a year payments from Alberta Canada will become insolvent and no amount of Fake-ugees will “stimulate” the economy. If you want to see where we are headed with a fake femi-nazi globalist in charge, look at Ireland. Planning to ban ALL fossil fuel passenger vehicles while "taking in 1 million “refugees” into a current 4.7 million Irish population would bring an additional 3.5 million “family” members for a total of 4.5 million migrants in a total population of 9.2 million. The “migrant” population would then be 49% of the population of Ireland and a distinct majority in less than 10 years.

As absurd as it sounds for the Irish government to be paying journalists to sell out Ireland, it appears to be a more widespread practice than most people realize."

What I am saying by asking that question is … a knee-jerk reaction of “Alberta must separate!” to Bill C-69 which serves to block pipeline investment and construction will not in any way open up opportunity for Alberta to build pipelines. In fact, separation would have the opposite effect unless Alberta joins the USA while Trump is in office.
commented 2019-06-21 08:32:44 -0400
So, for those pushing for Alberta separation, I ask you, how will separation increase Alberta’s ability to get pipelines built?
commented 2019-06-21 02:31:04 -0400
Is anybody really surprised how things turned out? We know what kind of Government we are dealing with,so the time for only talking and ranting about what should be done is over and now’s the time to plan, organize,and act. Enough talk.Let’s start doing. Telling Kenney we want vote on separation is a good start.
