Liberal obedience to climate change dogma will kill $13.7B Energy East project

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

The National Energy Board gave their approval on TransCanada’s application to put the Energy East pipeline on hold, prompting the company to go back to the drawing board to ensure profitability and viability of the project before proceeding. 

They’re already dealing with pricey carbon taxes and now the NEB has brought in new regulations on emissions the company will have to consider.

We’ve now learned the new NEB panel wants to factor both upstream and downstream emissions into the equation for Energy East which could come from parts of the process that are out of the control of TransCanada.

The NEB also decides who will do the impact assessment and have chosen the Pembina Institute.

That’s the same Pembina Institute that received $95K from Tides U.S. - a foundation known to fund anti-oil activism in Canada.

Basically, the federal government’s climate change dogma is killing a privately funded $13.7B project that could decrease Canada’s dependence on Middle East conflict oil and bring jobs and economic prosperity to the country.

Sadly, the Liberals are against pipeline development and the only difference between now and before Trudeau and McKenna came to power is that back then, they were on the protest line and now they’re in the boardroom.

Gerald Butts. He believes in no oil extraction or use. He has the ear of Baby Doc Trudeau (hey, Butts must know what he is talking about – he was with Green Peace0 and pulls the environment strings for Environmental Barbie to spout.

Lucky for Butts, Baby Doc is a simple minded fool that can repeat and repeat and repeat what the voice in his earpiece tells him to say. After all, he is the least educated of all PMs we have ever had. Dropping out of two universities that, lets face it, accepted him more for his family name than likely not. If the program was astrophysics or tiddley-winke, he would have been given s pass because of who his father was. And now this fool is running our country, or rather driving it into poverty.

39% of the population voted him in. Lets hope that they wake up a bit and stop listening to CBC/CTV/Global?City news.

(Remember when Harper had won with 41% and Trudeau was spouting off about it not being representative of the people and that the government wasn’t legitimate? Yah, the good old days…)

Trudeau is going to be filthy rich after he leaves office. Taking out a potential rival in the world oil market pays dividends.

Space Moose Alberta has a rainy day fund, at least we do if Notley does not piss it away. And if we did not have to support other provinces and PET had not raped us for over 100 billion in past , we could have a nice chunk of savings.

Even if a project is approved by the NEB, the Trudeau gov’t makes sure it doesn’t end there by stuffing the board with more rules so much so that eventually these companies have no choice but to back off because by then the project has become so expensive it’s almost impossible to continue & with it goes more high paying jobs. What a hypocrite Trudeau is, saying he’s all for pipelines, it couldn’t be further from the truth. No, instead he legalizes the pot industry, where lives will be put in danger instead of a sprinkling of carbon emissions in the air &
Richard Schmidt. You couldn’t be more right with your analysis.
So many of these fossil projects have been cancelled, it’s a damn shame & how much is the pot legalization costing Canadians to install, but no problem, the Libs will think up of more ways to continue their incessant harmful spending, that is a lot scarier than a plus 1degree in temperature 100 yrs from now.

A federal Muslim cabinet + a scarf headed premier of Alberta and Arab oil tankers plying the east coast and the narrow St Laurence river

Is a carbon tax added to imported “conflict oil” ?
Will NEB use these same considerations for imported oil “Saudi et al” ??
How come Trudope hasn’t banned the St. Lawrence tanker traffic as it is endangering the Whales there ? (like he did on west coast)
Again like Trudeau the elder he is perpetuating a Quebec/Ontario bias with this new energy policies while maintaining equalization payments from the West.
Time for west to separate !!

It is at times like this that make me wonder why Canada is not more rich than Saudi Arabia.

Billy Howard commented – “It’s ironic that Trudeau would prefer Mid-East oil to Canadian oil.”

It’s not ironic at all if you consider Trudeau’s patronage alignment with financial interests who profit from taking Canadian energy off line to Canada’s largest energy consumer. Even the Irving interests were for this move to domestic supply after they were held hostage to foreign oil cartel spike pricing. Tells you a lot about who is pulling the strings on our puppet PM.

The lack of low cost Canadian energy will be the fatal poison pill in Ontario’s industrial suicide. By spring there will be a lot of cold, jobless angry people there.

It’s ironic that Trudeau would prefer Mid-East oil to Canadian oil. I guess that means he’s all for the extermination of gays, the abuse of women and girls, and the murder of apostates and Jews. Afterall, his support and purchase of oil from those countries only perpetuates and encourages such murder and abuse. I guess his religion (climate change) is more important than human rights.
Hmm, Justin’s religious dogma sounds awfully similar to…um…er…I dunno: radical Islam!?
It all makes sense now.

This is the real reason the Liberals smile benignly on those wanting to unperson John A. He actually was able to build a country and the infra-structure to go with it, something Liberals have been incapable of.

Their only contribution to the building of Canada was the ambiguous treaties 6, 7 and 8 plus the racist Indian Affairs Department, formed for patronage still giving.
