Donald Trump has made his selection for the director of Environmental Protection Agency. His name is Scott Pruitt, and he’s awesome.
Pruitt was actually suing the EPA, to stop their illegal war on coal. Now he’s running it!
In the thirty days since Donald Trump won the election, he has changed the psychology of the country. Stock markets are at new highs; companies are talking about hiring again — even U.S. Steel is talking about 10,000 new jobs in America. Trump says he’s going to cut the U.S. corporate tax rate down from 35 per cent to 15 per cent.
And so my point of today is: what does this mean for Canada?
If you’re Exxon or Chevron or Shell or BP or any of the super majors, or even a little company, would you invest in Alberta right now, or America?
How much higher will Alberta’s carbon tax go? Kathleen Wynne plans to raise electricity prices for 15 more years, every year. Justin Trudeau wants to put a carbon tax on every single province.
Which way do you think the jobs will go, the investment? What about our bright young university grads?
Our entire political leadership is racing in the wrong direction. We’ve got trust fund kids like Trudeau where our chief competitor has a gritty entrepreneur. We have tokens and affirmative action hires like Catherine McKenna as our environment minister, who has never worked a private sector job, while they now have a hard-nosed, states’ rights activist from Oklahoma.
Scott Pruitt is an amazing pick for EPA director. And that rising tide is either going to lift our boat too — or swamp us.
But it depends on whether Trudeau, Notley, McKenna and Wynne are going to keep marching in their direction, or turn around and get with the times.
NEXT: Is the Trump effect real, and can it be replicated around the world?
