CTV calls Trudeau, Notley pro-pipeline. Are they stupid — or think you are?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

More fake news: CTV is calling Justin Trudeau the “pipeline prime minister,” and Alberta’s Rachel Notley the “pipeline premier.”

Notley actively opposed Keystone XL for years, and actively opposes the Northern Gateway Pipeline.

And what has Trudeau done? He’s accepted the scientific, environmental and economic views of the National Energy Board to approve the proposed expansion of Kinder Morgan’s Trans-Mountain pipeline, and another refitted pipeline called Line 3.

I’m not sure why that deserves a medal.

Neither of those pipelines have been built. Trudeau hasn’t lifted a finger for the last, biggest pipeline proposal — the mighty Energy East. He’s letting Denis Coderre block it, even though Quebec does not have a constitutional right to.

The only pipeline that’s going to be built in the next three years will be Keystone XL — because Donald Trump wants it.

Trudeau not only killed Northern Gateway, but also said he wants to get off fossil fuels.

I’m actually not sure why he later said he mis-spoke — a half-retraction he took days to say. Then he went to Calgary and unleashed an even worse mish-mash: It’s his job to sell the oil sands but he basically wants to phase out fossil fuels?

Let me sum it up:

The Liberals and the NDP hate the oilsands. The only pipeline that will be built under Trudeau is the Keystone XL — and that’s only because Donald Trump will punish Trudeau if it isn’t.

NEXT: Gordon Chang joins me to talk about America's relationship with China under the Trump Administration.

THEN: Laura Jones, Executive VP of Canadian Federation of Independent Business talks about the "Paperweight Awards," to highlight outrageous red tape hassles weighing down small business.

Liza.. Outstanding post.!!!!

One of the big players in the gas and oil market thanks to technology enabling efficient shale oil extraction, and fracking. One of the globes big resource rich countries, and the only one who isn’t ALLOWED to get their product to market. Go figure.
The answer is market share, and social engineering. Anyone who still thinks it has anything to do with the environment or native rights needs to catch up. Soon would be good. So go peddle your misinformation somewhere else Earl.
Get smart or grow a conscience, which ever applies.
You are either stupid and lazy or evil. which is it ?

Oil sands are great for Canadians all Canadians, a blessing , especially for poor leftist province like Quebec.

What’s your problem Earl? What you call tar is bitumen, shale oil. It can’t flow in pipelines unless it is diluted. It may be heavier and more viscous than other hydrocarbons in its raw state, but there is nothing ‘dirty’ or more dangerous about it. You have been brainwashed by foreign funded lies. There is a reason ‘they’ don’t want us to extract and export our resource and it has nothing to do with the environment. You are nothing but a stupid pawn foot soldier for the globalists. Are you really stupid enough to think you are ‘saving’ anything? You are a traitor, either willingly or due to your blind resistance.
Answer Leviticus, what’s the matter. Rebut if you are so knowledgeable or go home.

@earl Richards…the Alberta oil sands has been leaching into the Athabasca River for millennia. It is high time we claened up that oil spill.
commented 2017-01-29 12:35:50 -0500
Peter—- You should read the definition of tar sands in google.
commented 2017-01-29 12:17:56 -0500
Earl Richards… Don’t pick on anybody else out there pick on me..! I can obviously see that you are avoiding me.
I have called you out many times on many things and you have out right lied and made attempts to deceive, circumvent and the use of many other tactics that you were groomed in.
Unless you want to go back to whale oil to have something to bitch about you really should get your facts straight.

@ Earl Richards who said, “Peter—- I am not preaching about how bad oil and gas are, I am preaching how bad the toxic, tar sands are.”

You are listening to the lies and anti-oil propaganda. The oil sands are no more toxic than any other oil extraction. Oh, and btw, there is not any tar in the oilsands whatsoever. You use the term “tar” to make it sound bad. That is a liar’s tactic.

Earl Richards said to Liza, “Liza—- The tar sands are not biodegradable, because they are still at the bottom of the Kalamazoo River.”

Earl, you are confusing biodegradable with water soluble. You really should go take some science courses.

Drew—- The controversy is about the toxic, tar sands and not conventional oil.
commented 2017-01-29 04:15:48 -0500
Earl our oil is not dirty and raw sewage is far more toxic and damaging to water sheds. Try some reality.
commented 2017-01-29 02:06:12 -0500
Earl, California oil for example is dirtier than our OIL sands. Fact.
Plus there is nothing wrong with what you label as ‘tar sands’ oil. Unprocessed hydrocarbon biodegrades faster than processed. I sure hope you don’t fly or drive a car. You wouldn’t want to encourage hydrocarbon use. Or is it just Canadian ethical oil you have a problem with, Sure sounds like it. You are one of those man buns who have no compunction using Saudi conflict oil but protest using ours. You are a bloody hypocrite.
Never mind any of the facts Earl, we know they mean nothing to you, just go away with this, You are a hypocrite, a stinking brain dead hypocrite taker.

And furthermore Eric if the caliber of the reply does not meet or exceed the caliber of the statement then you are running out of game.!!
commented 2017-01-28 22:54:41 -0500
And just for Prosterity sake Eric I never drew or even alluded to any comparisons between conventional and mined oil.
And now you’re starting to piss me off with a flaccid reply to a factual argument.!!
Please feel free to quote me in my postings to any comparisons that I have made.!!
commented 2017-01-28 22:50:48 -0500
Out with the liberals and the NDP and long live Canada’s economic engine.!!
commented 2017-01-28 22:48:07 -0500
I have been in oil all my life both conventional and mined..and I can tell the only thing that you know about oil is what you read and furthering that you only extrapolated what pleased you and the way you were groomed to think.
commented 2017-01-28 22:43:26 -0500
You should reread what I said Eric
commented 2017-01-28 22:41:20 -0500
Earl- you bring to mind two words “cupid” and “stunt”.
commented 2017-01-28 22:04:25 -0500
Leviticus—-You are drawing a false comparison between the tar sands and other mines. You should be drawing the comparison between the tar sands and other forms of oil.
commented 2017-01-28 22:02:49 -0500
I did not mean to say girl it was supposed to be Eric and it’s a typo and I apologize for that.
commented 2017-01-28 22:01:55 -0500
By the way girl if you knew anything about the Athabasca River you could go to the tributaries that feed into it not out I’ll say it again that feed into it and you can see the oil on the water from the water sheds and it’s no where’s near the mine. The water from the sheds and the oil it’s on it is a naturally occurring source of that human.. don’t you get it most of the rivers and watersheds up there flow over top of the existing tar beds and it cannot help but to leech the oil from the water and feed it into the Athabasca… That has been occurring for thousands and thousands and thousands of years.
I just find it odd that nobody speaks about that.
Rather than watch the mainstream media grow a pair pack a shotgun over your shoulder so you don’t get eaten by bears and start foot tramping as many watersheds, small creeks and rivers as you can while fishing and doing nature exploring and you’ll get a better idea of the area…
The natives back in the day used surface tar that was exposed by the water to waterproof their canoes… How about that.!

Earl Richards… The tar sands are not any more toxic than any other mine and when the reclamation is done they graze Buffalo on it you know how I know this because I’ve been there since 1984 I don’t get my news from the Internet or from the television set…
All the pissing and moaning that you hear about are from special interest groups of all creeds wanting to have their palms greased to keep their mouth shut and quit stirring the water till it’s muddy.
Long live the tar sands and long live Canada’s economic engine.!!!!

The very moment Earl Richards and the rest of the enviroweenies stop using fossil fuels in all its’ many forms is the very moment I start listening to their babble.

Ya wanna preach about how bad oil and gas are, then live by whatcha preach. Simple as that.
commented 2017-01-28 19:08:30 -0500
“Sewage is biodegradable and the tar sands are not.”

Wrong. The oil in the OIL sands is completely biodegradable. Every resource made by nature returns to nature. Ask your native buddies who’s ancestors used bitumen to seal up their canoes. It has been oozing out of the banks of the Athabasca river NATURALLY for thousands of years.
Earl Richards who’s paying you?

Screw Earl. His refusal to accept the reality that oil and gas ain’t going anywhere anytime soon will only help turn an energy rich country into an energy poor one. Everyone will suffer Earl including you, doofas.

Earl Richards,

The Kinder Morgan already exists, and has existed for about six decades. It is not a new pipeline, but just an expansion, along with the higher tech safe guards that occurred between original construction and the upgrade. It is built buddy, and if it has not spilled oil with its 1950’s technology into the Fraser, imagine how safe it will be with 2010’s technology.

Are you that stupid?
