The Alberta oilsands aren’t the only amazing new source of oil in the free world that’s giving OPEC dictatorships a run for their money.
North Dakota produces about one million barrels per day. Unemployment in that state is a shockingly low 2.9 per cent.
Meanwhile, in Alberta, multi-billion dollar companies are bailing out, and the unemployment rate is 8.3 per cent.
It’s not oil prices. It’s politics.
North Dakota has a pro-oil government, but Alberta’s government is at war with its own industry.
That's why the Dakota Access Pipeline, or DAPL, was pretty much going to be completed.
Obama used the protesters as his excuse to deny the pipeline its right of way to build.
But within days of taking office, Trump lifted Obama's ban on construction, and police cleared the protesters. (It cost tens of millions of dollars to clean up their mess.)
From dead, stopped, blocked, impossible, legal barriers, physical barriers, protest barriers, rampant crime — to jobs, growth, industry, prosperity and the rule of law.
And the moral of the story is:
You don’t have to be bullied by fake professional protesters. America (and Canada) still have enough underlying rule of law to get a project built if there is any political will.
Trump has it, but Trudeau doesn’t.
In fact, he’s on the other side...
NEXT: Marc Morano of Climate Depot comes on to talk about Trump's sweeping executive "energy independence" order abolishing many of Obama's climate policies.
FINALLY: I read your messages to me.
