Liberals hand out “corporate welfare” instead of pipelines to “fix” oil patch crisis

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Two Liberal Ministers, Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi and International Trade Diversification Minister Jim Carr, took to the podium in Edmonton to announce their solution to the crisis they caused in Canada's oil patch.

It’s not a pipeline. It’s welfare.

The feds are dishing out what they’re calling a $1.6 billion “investment” in supporting Alberta's oil patch:

Export Development Canada will provide $1 billion in commercial financing to oil and gas exporters.

The Business Development Bank of Canada will provide $500 million in commercial financing over the next three years to help high risk but viable small oil and gas companies.

Lastly, the feds are dishing out $50 million for clean growth programs.

Today, I’ll put this $1.6 billion announcement into perspective.

It’s a pittance, a drop in the bucket compared to the private sector investment the Liberals chased away with their regulatory gerrymandering against pipelines.

The tone-deaf announcement from Minister Sohi shows how little the Liberals actually understand the West.

We don't want to become Bombardier, The Province!

We don't want cronyism for big corporations using money pulled from the pockets of the very families who are losing their jobs due to Liberal inaction.

Albertans don't want welfare. We want jobs and we want the federal government to get out of the way of what we do best: Build pipelines and make oil.

“… “We aren’t going to take it any more.” (Credit to, Twisted Sister).”
Uh, sorry to contradict you, but that credit goes to Sidney Lumet and Paddy Chayefsky, for the 1976 movie, “NETWORK”, spoken by the actor, Peter Finch.
And the line from the character, Howard Beale was: “I want you to get up right now. Sit up. Go to your windows. Open them and stick your head out and yell – ’I’m as mad as hell and I’m not gonna take this anymore!’ Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad!…You’ve got to say, I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE! Then we’ll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first, get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!"

Thanks for saying that Sheila, and it’s not just Albertan Canadians who feel that way!

Why are we allow these lying, criminal scum to ruin our country?
Is there something wrong with Canadians in the modern age?
I say fix the problem, kill all the treasonous assholes and be done with the BS! We know who they are.
Kill them with a state sanctioned rope and send a message to the rest of them…
If we don’t take our country back from these evil, criminal swine – and make no mistake, these are a One World Order class of evil criminal swine – then we can just kiss Canada and our own Canadian asses goodbye!
It’s up to you now…

Does that sound a little crazy to you?
Well, sitting on our collective asses while the criminal class (5 P professionals) loots and destroys Canada sounds pretty effing crazy to me!

I wish there was more than just THEREBEL out there, outing the stream of lies and treason the Liberals vomit daily – this is in no way a slight against THEREBEL – it’s a condemnation of the MSM, Fake News, Media Party – and all the dumb f**k – useful idiots out there who buy into the BS with their virtue signaling lefty blinders on!
Oh Canada…

They want to inject money into the area to keep it alive. Remember they are building the largest Mosque in Canada in Alberta.They want things to still be working there for the benefit of all the Muslims that will be going to live there, once the massive Migration gets underway. And they are settling in there to be close to the oil industry that they will revitalize once we have a Sharia Government.
Protests, petitions, anybody see any real favorable changes made because of them? They have started to listen in France because of the damage suffered and the likely threat to Macron. When it’s their Coward asses that are threatened they do start to pay attention. That’s exactly the game plan we need to play here. They think they can manipulate us at all times. We need to get angry and make it known that, “We aren’t going to take it any more.” (Credit to, Twisted Sister)

Alberta desperately needs pipeline NOW! This is just the beginning of the cratering of the province’s economy and the social consequences. Can Alberta afford to wait for years? The protests are fine, a chance to let off steam. However, I don’t know what, but something needs to be done to bring about immediate results. Desperate times require desperate measures.

Wanna tell Trudeau how you really feel? Now’s the time! PASS IT ON!

There is only one answer to Trudeau’s newest welfare programme, which is really an attempt to shore up his carbon tax friends in the NDP, and an attempt to buy votes: Crush the Liberals next year. 2019. THE REVOLUTION BEGINS.

Trudeau is trying to kibosh the energy sector,I mean look at the dope he made natural resources minister. Sohi was a dumbass as a city councilor in Edmonton and he is an even bigger dumbass in the federal game,you need a flipping interpreter to decode his babbling!!
commented 2018-12-18 21:30:08 -0500
God damn liberals wasting taxpayer money,we Albertans don’t need handouts,we need pipelines you rats!! This is just buying Trudeau and his Islamic cabinet more time to put the real issue off,stall tactics!! Why doesn’t the jackass scrap the tanker bans as sign of good faith-we all know why he won’t .

Poor Justin. Who dragged him into this? Pray he isn’t going to Hell like his father. Whoever that might be.

Trudeau will go down in history as the ‘Killer of Pale Faces’ but only if we let him.

Mother gov’t back at it again.
“You don’t need independence. You need to be dependent on me forever so I can own you”.
Shelia, you rock your make-up too. I complemented Martina. You deserve one too. Pink is your color. Your eyes are deep set so you can pull off a lot of eyeshadow.
Large eyes, nope.
Thanks for your work.

But Sheila, building pipelines and making oil is exactly what Trudeau, Butthead and Notley do not want.

This is why they are hoping this $1.6 Billion meant for loans to the industry will appease the average voter that is not paying attention to what is really happening.

This might fool the average Eastern Canadian, and it most definitely will fool the idiots in the main stream media, but it will not fool Albertans who generally tend to be more grounded in common sense and reality.

You mean to tell me Albertans didn’t tar and feather them and run them out on a rail? Good. I don’t want to miss it. I want to be there when it happens.

What will happen when the last Canadian is unemployed or taxed to death? Who funds all these projects then? Oh, right. Our great grandchildren.
commented 2018-12-18 19:25:18 -0500
Justin’s got you fooled Sheila.
This money isn’t to “help” Albertans prior to the election (the Libs know they will lose the 3 seats there). It gives Trudeau the “social license” to tell Quebec and Atlantic Canada that the Liberals are generous to westerners too and are not “divisive” or pitting regions against each other. He wants the east to believe the deplorables out west are the divisive ones and basically, just whiny.
I think Canadians east of Manitoba are going to be hoodwinked by this strategy too and give our sanctimonious PM another majority.

It’s another slap in the face to Albertans.
