According to an order paper response tabled by the government this week, oil imports to Canada will not be put through the Liberal’s nonsensical gender-based analysis.
“[W]ith regard to the government's policy to allow oil imports from Venezuela and Saudi Arabia, has a gender-based analysis been conducted on the importation of oil from Venezuela and Saudi Arabia and if so what were the findings of the analysis?”
And now the government has answered, with this response from Natural Resources Minister, Amarjeet Sohi:
“Gender-based analysis plus plays an important role in government domestic regulatory, program and policy development. Decisions on where to import crude oil from are private sector commercial decisions and as such, federal gender-based analysis plus analyses are not conducted on crude oil imports. However many companies do conduct their own gender-based analyses”
According to the National Energy Board, New Brunswick has the most diverse crude slate. In 2017, Saudi Arabia accounted for almost 40 per cent of New Brunswick's crude oil imports followed by Azerbaijan, the United Kingdom the US and Nigeria.
The government and the media won’t shut up about how this Liberal government is a feminist one because of something to do with the current calendar year.
That’s a lot of oil coming into this country and getting away with literal murder; stoning women, hanging gays, keeping slaves, denying women the franchise or the ability to leave their house without a male chaperone, you know, the current year Saudi Arabia stuff.
