This Trudeau government is so stupid, it’s amazing the things they spend money on. Here's the latest:
"Feds to spend $280k to study why Canada’s oil and gas sector is falling behind”
(By the way, Monique Scotti wrote this story for Global News. And she just happens to be married to Adam Scotti, Justin Trudeau’s personal photographer...)
The Northern Gateway pipeline was approved by the National Energy Board — over $10 billion in private sector investment right there. Not a dime of government money needed. So many jobs. And so much tax money about to gush into the economy — as opposed to subsidized “climate change” projects.
But then Trudeau killed the deal.
Now the Liberals are looking to hire a "deliverology" expert for $280,000 to research "the competitiveness of the oil and gas industry in Canada."
"Prompted by a decline in oil prices that began in mid-2014, investment in Canada’s oil and gas industry has fallen by over 50% between 2014 and 2016. While investment has recovered from the low point, it is not expected to reach previous levels anytime soon.”
You can’t really keep blaming low oil prices from four years ago, can you? Tonight I'll explain why, using pre-existing charts and studies on oil and gas investment in Canada — that I got for pretty easily, for free.
But spending over a quarter of a million taxpayers' dollars is the Liberal way.
The investment isn’t coming back as long as they’re in power.
That’s your answer — and you didn’t even have to pay me 280,000 bucks to hear it.

And then... the charity gave the money back!
