Yesterday we told you that the Liberal mayor of Montreal, Denis Coderre, demanded that the Energy East pipeline be blocked from passing through Quebec.
It’s a $15.7 billion infrastructure project, but Denis Coderre doesn’t care.
That's because Quebec gets $21 billion a year in transfer payments, extracted in part from the oil industry in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
So Alberta’s opposition leader, Brian Jean, pointed out the hypocrisy of Coderre blocking an oil pipeline on "environmental" grounds when Montreal dumps billions of litres of raw human sewage directly into the St. Lawrence River.
Then Saskatchewan premier Brad Wall tweeted, "I trust Montreal area mayors will politely return their share of $10B in equalization supported by west."
Coderre lost his cool.
He denounced Brian Jean -- some weird thing about Jean believing that the Flintstones was a documentary. (That's how the Liberals, including Coderre, used to insult Stockwell Day and other Christians ten years ago. Jean isn’t particularly Christian, so it didn’t even make sense. But that's how weird and stupid Coderre is.)
The fact is, Coderre isn't anti-oil.
He just doesn’t want Alberta oil, because it’s got cooties or something.
(PS: Coderre actually made the local TV news when he was a kid, for talking about UFOs at a school science fair. He was so stupid he made the news for being stupid.)
If Montrealers want this low-information kook as their mayor, and if the Liberals think it’s fine for their senior political operative in Quebec to attack the west, that’s fine.
But the rest of Canada has to look after its own business.
And I say: Cut off equalization payments to these ungrateful bigots.
So SIGN MY PETITION at CutThemOff.ca.
It’s simple: We demand that any government that opposes oil and gas pipelines be cut off from oil and gas equalization payments.
This isn’t just about economics, and national unity. It’s about self-respect.
