REPORT: OPEC oil NOT subject to Liberals’ “social justice” rules

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


An independent investigation by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) revealed that the federal government is giving preferential treatment to foreign oil.

The Liberals imposed strict upstream and downstream GHG considerations on prospective energy projects seeking approval from the federal government, and those changes spurred the cancellation of TransCanada’s Energy East pipeline.

The CTF filed a series of access-to-information requests with four separate federal ministries: Environment and Climate Change Canada, Transport Canada, Natural Resources Canada and Global Affairs Canada.

CTF asked the government:

“Please provide reports and analysis (final copy or last draft copy if the final is not available) on reviews related to any upstream or downstream impacts to greenhouse gas emissions from foreign oil imported to Canada. The time frame for this request is January 1st 2015 to December 21st 2017.”

Each one of those information requests returned the exact same response:

“After a thorough search no records were found concerning this request.”

The federal government isn't concerning itself with the 759,000 barrels of oil per day that Canada imports from foreign sources — a third of which were imports from OPEC member countries including Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Nigeria and the United Arab Emirates.

The CTF cited a 2014 report by the Canadian Energy Research Institute that noted how the now dead Energy East pipeline, would have contributed $7.6 billion in tax revenue across different levels of government in pipeline revenue alone. The pipeline itself was a $15 billion private-sector investment that would have employed over 3,700 people during the construction phase.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau might be the Iranian mullahs’ best oil salesman.

Environment Minister Catherine McKenna should be making a commission on all the help she's giving the dictatorship of Venezuela.

And Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr is working much harder for Saudi Aramco then he is for the province of Alberta.

Interesting idea, tax imported crude oil to a rate equivalent to the carbon dioxide tax that Canadian oil producers must pay, to help level the playing field. Likely too many unintended consequences. The importers might not like it, or the exporters, but at first blush it seems fair… tax everyone equally or not at all.

In his program last night, Ezra spoke of the Trudeau regime as “someone who wants to kill their country to favour foreigners”. I would call someone like that a traitor to our country.

Trudeau was planted in our parliament by the Islamic UN. Hopefully his cabinet will bring the house down by voting against this traitor, or blood will be on their hands too! Though I suspect they are out of touch with their consciences, or they wouldn’t still be backing him. This is why he didn’t want any Christians in his cabinet, because true Christians would vote with their consciences. Plus he had to comply with Islams hatred of Christians and Jews. Canada is on life support, so let’s pray for a miracle that we are rid of this narcissistic psychopath, sooner rather than later!

The importation of OPEC oil supports Islamists. Jihadi Justin’s favored people!

Interesting read of a letter written by the mayor of Fort St. John, " The mayor of Fort St. John Lori Ackerman wrote this letter about Pipelines to the citizens of B.C., found on She tells it like it is from someone who lives there.

YES Canada would be easily energy self sufficient, Our coal, sold to China ( for peanuts) shipped by our rail lines. Then ship by sea to fuel their coal fired electrical plants) where is their carbon tax?
The liebral fix is in, turdos uncle Paul owns the tanker shipping line that does not pay any Canadian taxes. Registered to another country. The one that imports 800,000 barrels a day up the St,Lawrence river.Then shipped by rail and truck all over the East. We get to pay the carbon tax on the trucking part and when we use the fuel. This allows for the millions (probably much less) spent on stupid anti Canada anti oil (useful idiots) thugs. Allowing the LIEBRALS to make billions off the Canadian people.
Nope no carbon tax for uncle Paul,s tankers bringing in OPEC oil and no upstream down stream carbon assessment for him. A flight in a friends small plane along the Canada US border. Amazing how many power lines run across to the US. Then we are told Alberta needs more capacity for generation, now I know why. Bet we pay the carbon tax for the US too.

canadians continue to celebrate and reward treason and the left wing, psychopathic, tyrannical islamic tyrant as he continues to wipe canada and our futures off the map each and every hour of every day!
NO one seems interested in holding him accountable or pulling him from office for all the crimes he has committed since taking office- especially not those whom we pay to hold him accountable including our law enforcement and those on parliament hill. What a sad joke canada and canadians have become as we continue to support and pay/reward this canada/canadian hating, racist, lying ,, thieving, intellectually challenged, mentally ill trust fund brat who hasn’t enough brain cells to tie his own shoes! he and his entire government should all be swinging by their necks from the tallest poles on parliament hill! It would appear canadians are equally as treasonous and mentally disturbed as proved by their lack of action and continuing to reward and support this criminal regime!

John Keller, you are assuming that by that time we don’t have a Muslim Commissioner of the RCMP.And I don’t say that in jest.

It’s economic warfare. The liberal-ISIS alliance wants to destroy our oil industry and import Sharia oil instead. They hate Canada, especially Alberta. After the next election Trudeau will have to be investigated for his ties to radical Islam.

But Sheila that is magical oil that cleanses away all the human rights violations of those who extracted and shipped it. It miraculously brings gays that were hung back to life and women that were stoned to death are also risen from the grave. Unlike our EVIL Alberta oil that kills puppies and rapes children.
Also it somehow has no effect on climate change, quite the amazing product.

To create some fairness for all of Canada (i.e. no special rules for Quebec and Ontario elites):
two rules as minimum should be mandatory – 1) all ships travelling in St. Lawrence should be banned or as minimum pay a significant user fee to be put into a “environmental contingency fund” to cover potential accident clean-up and remedial costs, and
2) a duty on all imported carbon based products such as Oil, gas, crude, coal, gas etc. products.

Furthermore the LARGE cement plant in Gaspe is not subject to ANY environmental fees either on its operation or its products!!. It is Quebec’s largest GHG producer – comparable to some of the larger producers in “Tar Sands”. Have you ever heard of any protests against this ?? of course not – its a Quebec industry.

The only other solution is for West to actually separate and then impose significant export duties on product to Eastern Canada i.e. “let them freeze in dark” and use solar powered transportation!!

Thanks for pulling this together Sheila.

When all those Saudi ships arrive on the East coast I sure hope McKenna has pre warned all the women and shims that a schwack of oil men may be embarking on their streets. And you can never be too careful!

I am tired of being governed by socialists and more importantly unintelligent socialists.

Trudeau simply does not have a clue.

RachelNotley tweeted-I’m so proud of all of the women who contribute, lead, and make a difference daily in every corner of our province. You are laying the groundwork of hope for the next generation of girls sitting at school desks across Alberta this morning. Is Sheila Gunn Reid one of the women that Rachel was referring too? Sheila contributes, is a leader and definitely makes a difference in Alberta and Canada but i am sure that she isn’t a woman that Notley is proud of.

Ask the feminist Trudeau if he knows if the imported Saudi oil has passed his gender impact studies.
commented 2018-03-15 20:06:04 -0400
No problem, Alberta is used to being bent over.
commented 2018-03-15 20:03:04 -0400
Excellent report Sheila.
The government is dead set against acting in the best interests of Canada and it’s citizens, the very definition of treason.

These nut bar fiberals will get away with it with the help of the CBC .
commented 2018-03-15 19:46:40 -0400
Thank You Sheila! Don’t think CBC will be giving out any of that info.

For all you Libtards who voted these lunatics into power – START F**KIN RUNNING!
