As Canada’s economy tanks, McKenna to “nag” G7 leaders to ban plastics

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


Canada's environment Minister Catherine McKenna is pushing for a ban on plastics at the upcoming G7 meeting.

McKenna made the announcement about her new “zero plastics waste charter” from Cancun, Mexico where she was at an International Conference on the world's oceans. She is asking the world to have 100 per cent reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by 2030.

Canada, as the host nation, holds the presidency of the G7. It’s an opportunity to build lasting economic relationships with our G7 partners.

But instead - just like our natural resource wealth - Canada will be squandering this incredible opportunity and pushing the world's industrialized countries to adopt new goals for plastic recycling and waste reduction.

Trump is threatening tariffs on our steel if Canada doesn’t come to the table and abandon our social justice interference in NAFTA negotiations. The Canadian dollar has fallen to its lowest point in months as NAFTA, Trump’s advantageous tax regime and an inability to get our resources to market take a bite out of our currency.

Canada has an opportunity at the G7 meeting to rebuild our fractured relationship with our American neighbours, but instead, Canada is lecturing world leaders about their garbage.

Trump is playing chess and Trudeau is busy sorting paper and plastics.

No Barbie, No!… Plastics have done immense good since 1947 when DuPont started using them on an industrial scale… What is key is how people use them, or more tellingly, HOW THE DISPOSE OF THEM… The rivers of plastics flushing to the seas every minute of every day are human created POLLUTION!… It is human disposal of plastics that is the problem!… PEOPLE, IRRESPONSIBLE PEOPLE, get it??? Once again “Barbie” you are assuming that banning a product will be the cure rather than changing irresponsible behaviour… If too, too many societies on the face of the earth have a “flush and to hell with it” ethos, then that is the root of the problem, not the plastic bottle you just drank from and tossed…

I thought the plastic problem was solved after they stop using plastic applicators for tampons , because women were flushing them down the toilet . There were as many of them as cigarette butts . Is that how climate change affects women more than men ? Gave me a warm fuzzy feeling when you saw them on your favorite beach .
What a twit . That’s being nice Barbie . OMG

It’s impossible to satirize the left. No matter how outrageous you are, one of them will say something nuttier in all sincerity and seriousness.

Here’s just a couple of comments from our close Friends south of the border…

Oh good God. More liberal insanity. Does she realize the harm she’s doing to the credibility of woman by making such an outrageous statement?

Under Trudeau Canada is a sick society. A society that has mentally ill people in the highest positions of power.

Jill and John Ward
Love the idea of having the invading force do some clean up for their welfare cheques. It gives them something to do, other than spending all their time plotting to kill us.
And you are not the only ones in a rage over the importation of these Parasites. As the weather gets warmer, there will be more of these Mentally Diseased Hostiles crossing our border. Trudeau is clearly a TRAITOR to Canada in every way.
We pollute our beautiful country with Sewage and Savages.
Like so many of us, you are fed up of standing around doing nothing while our nation crumbles.
Get ready, we maybe in a hell of a fight soon.

Robert seriously . Barbie is just following Justines ( his fem name) lead . Like his working – India vacation . How many of you business people take the family on a working trip ? Now how many of you would take the whole family if some one else pays . Yep I think I know the answer . They are entitled to their entitlement . At least they are living up to be the most transparent government ever !!!!

James they think they are brown trout going into the water so what could be bad about that . Eastern browns and western browns . I guess she has nothing to do with that environment portfolio . As for the Saudi oil tankers East coast ok West coast bad . Sunny ways .
I had a friend tell me Trudeau was on the news talking and he could not listen to him . So he shut it off . He asked me who the hell voted for this guy .

Where was McKenna, when the waste from Japan was washing up all over the west coast, NO WHERE? What is her stand on Fukushima reactor waste water being dumped into the Pacific ocean at a rate of 300 million gallons per day? She is at a Mexican conference on Oceans and this idiot hasn’t mentioned anything about the Salmon on the BC coast, showing signs of bleeding eyes and gills. Or the ocean water with high level contents of deadly radiation, killing everything that it touches. But she still sticks her hand out to receive her pay cheque! WTF?
commented 2018-03-09 17:36:32 -0500
More lunacy from the Lieberals! Most plastics now are already, recyclable and biodegradable. This is to further grandstand over other nations’ prerogatives.
When NAFTA fails and the Canadian economy crashes, Jihadi Justin and the Buttskie will have their “emergency” to declare Justin Castro permanent ruler, y’know, the Lieberals are the “only” ones fit to rule!

Ron Voss Voss, I have Adblock Pro on Chrome Browser & it works pretty good. was un-usable without it & some sites like FOX News ask you to Whitelist them, so I did & Fox News is not bad at all without it. You Tube Ads that auto-played on the videos were the main reason I got Adblock Pro, now there are no annoying ads on You Tube anymore.

With respect to the problem with annoying pop-up ads, try a different browser like Brave:

Please fix the site. Nothing works…..wait, wait, wait… the message but your technology sucks

Catherine McKenna (and Butts) are all about Banning. They are activists pure and simple.
Ban Oil.
Ban Coal.
Ban LNG.
Ban all plastic.
Ban exploration of natural resources.
Ban pipeline construction.
That’s how socialists think. They want to dictate how people think and act. Your behaviour in otherwords.
How about if pollution is such a gigantic issue McKenna bans the dumping of raw sewage into clean fresh water rivers like the St. Lawrence?
Or if the danger of an oil spill in the ocean is so great how about banning the dumping of raw sewage into the ocean off the West and East coast?
If McKenna is all about social justice and women’s rights how about banning freighters from arriving on the East coast with Saudi oil?
Socialist thinking is a combination of control and hypocritical thinking. Oil sands and pipelines are convenient targets. Engineering and shaming people’s thinking to stop using fossil fuels while flying around the world in jet aircrafts and floating down the Rideau Canal in a leBoat while forcing Canadians to pay a stupid Carbon tax grab is hypocritical.
How about Canadians ban the Liberals from forming government from 2019 hence?
commented 2018-03-09 10:59:45 -0500
how about we ban the dumping of RAW SEWAGE INTO OUR OCEANS, RIVERS, LAKES ETC HERE IN CANADA AS WELL? What about all the GARBAGE BLOWING AROUND OUR HIGHWAYS, RIVERS, FIELDS, CITIES AND SO ONGuess it is just me who is CONCERNED AND VERY UPSET OVER THIS! How about we get these imported/illegal parasites out cleaning up the garbage which is everywhere in this once proud, clean country in exchange for all the WELFARE CHEQUES AND FREEBIES THEY ALL THRIVE ON OFF OUR TAX DOLLARS instead of being allowed to continue RAPING AND PILLAGING US ?? Quite frankly I have had enough of the DISRESPECT, ABUSE, EXPLOITATION, RAPING, PILLAGING OF WE CANADIANS AND CANADA BY ALL OUR POLITICIANS,GOVERNMENTS AND THOSE INVADING AND CONQUERING US!

I read that Canada is the host of this meeting and is the “president”of this group.
So, why is the meeting being held in Mexico?
Are these Liberal twats so ashamed of this country that they need to hold meetings in other countries?
If they are so intent on holding meetings in foreign countries, why not do it in some shit hole and help the economies of these empoverished nation’s.

Ezra, I realize that there is probably no chance you will read this, but here goes my comment anyway.

Since YouTube has demonetized your videos, and now it appears that they are playing their childish games with these ads, what is the reason for staying there?

Make the move to put your videos on a server where they want your business.

When you link to the video from your web site anyway, it matters none the location from which the video is served.
commented 2018-03-09 06:53:16 -0500
As others have observed, I too have noticed that all the Rebel videos go into an ad immediately and if you do not skip the ad as soon as it is possible, it goes into another ad and just spins and spins.

This does look like yet another childish thing the queers at YouTube are doing simply because they do not like the political views of Rebel Media.

Will the left ever grow up?
commented 2018-03-09 06:48:22 -0500
I am loathed to even partially agree with anything this federal government does, especially with Climate Barbie and Feminist Justine, but recycling plastic to help reduce the size of the massive land fill sites is a good thing. At least that is a real problem.

Climate Barbie should not be trying to push this on other countries. They can think for themselves. It is all just a bunch of virtue signalling from Climate Barbie.

Look at it this way, it is better she focus on a real problem such as plastics pollution than a fake issue such as global warming.

Robert McClelland… That the ultimate insanity isn’t it?… While Climate Barbie and the Boy Blunder and Chrystie With The Red Dress On push nonsensical issues on the world stage, the world keeps moving on, like ships passing in the night… Canada is going to get its face slapped in the upcoming NAFTA negotiations that will set us back for years to come…

Only one stock market in the world is performing worse than Canada and that is that of the socialist utopia of Venezuela. Climate Ken and Barbie have outdone themselves creating Canada’s “alternate” economy.

I agree Plastics in our oceans are a problem, but a very big problem to solve globally. China is the biggest producer, and not at this summit anyway. I just can’t imagine how this G7 is going to go.

United States, United Kingdom, France, Canada, Italy, Japan and Germany.
Japan is the only country that is protecting itself from immigration. I don’t want Merkel bullying us into taking anymore migrants.

In Freeland’s statement on steel and aluminium, it read, “For Canada to be considered as posing any kind of security threat to the United States is inconceivable.”
I don’t see how that is a very convincing line. I’m glad she feels the need to say it, it shows the U.S. may be putting pressure on us regarding ISIS and other terrorists and alliances. They have reason to be concerned. Who feels safe with that next door. I sure don’t feel safe with it in my country. I hope they give this rogue government a run for its money.

Is anyone else annoyed at these little postage stamp ads appearing while you’re writing your post or as you’re trying to enlarge the screen for the video, or is it just on my iPad that they are appearing?

Billy Howard…. Bloody well time Freeland sticks to the subject which is trade & put a sock in her mouth with their other agenda. If they don’t & Trump gets fed up he’ll shut it down with the Canadians running home with their tail between their legs.
Peter N…….your wish is my wish, never worried about Mr. Harper embarrassing us, always a gentleman, I wonder what all the Harper haters are thinking now, they’re pretty ticked off at our Mr. Dress Up.
What is Barbie doing right now about the plastic bags holding all those new clothes she’s buying? Does she bring a cloth bag to the shops & what about all her new cosmetics wrapped up in sealed plastic. Maybe instead of lecturing the world, she should quit her job & spend time inventing a replacement.
Tammie…..I would have signed, but they want too much personal info, which we have to agree to let them use for the purposes outlined.

Well we all know that Trudeau and McKenna and a host of other retarded (thanks JAMES SMITH) Liberals are nutty fruitcakes – that sciency for idiots, so what else did we expect?
We all also know that President Trump is laughing at Little Rotten Potato as is the rest of the world.
Our beloved Canada is in a very bad place right now thanks to the ‘Retatds’.
