Liberals stall on Canadian energy strategy but leap into “green” free trade agreement with Mexico and U.S.

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Jim Carr, Minister of Natural Resources, announced that Canada will be joining the US in order to move toward a green North American Free Trade Agreement. 

By now, we know the Liberals have a difficult time with solid answers when it comes to Canada’s own energy strategy, but they have no problem making deals and commitments with other countries. We saw this through the Paris Climate talks when they pledged billions of dollars to climate change strategies in other countries.

Carr was recently in Calgary side stepping questions and unable to give straight answers on Canadian pipelines, but while our new government advances energy strategies in other parts of the world, we stand back as the US backs a 900 km long pipeline in Kenya, doing this just days after rejecting Keystone XL citing the carbon footprint associated as the reason. And as for Mexico, two major pipeline projects have been authorized to transport natural gas across the US-Mexican border.

Where is the outrage from the activists on these projects if they’re considered to be harmful to the environment? The truth is that behind all of this hypocrisy, pipelines aren’t really detrimental to the environment in fact, they’re the safest way to transport hydrocarbons. What this is really all about is advancing individual energy strategies, in which Canada desperately needs one of its own.

The US hasn’t passed any significant laws on climate change and continues to be the second in line for highest GHG and CO2 emissions. And Canada has passed several legal provisions, with Alberta being the province with the highest numbers when it comes to climate change legislation. If the Liberal government is really serious about global warming, why are we taking the lead from a country that is failing when it comes to climate change measures?

Perry Bourque;
Have to agree with your comment, but would add that the UN are nothing but a gang of Marxist Gnomes who have control of all the Western Nations, including minimum numbers for immigration. Of course, Trudeau is exceeding this minimum number, no doubt because of his Saudi Bank Account.

Time to get rid of Trudeau.

Disqualify Canada from getting oil to market, lift sanctions to allow Iran to get their oil to international markets. Get liberal and socialist government in place in Canada to promote European green energy companies and reliance on US and OPEC oil. Transform western culture in the name of repopulation.

Sounds like a check list from the almighty UN.

Hi Holly. I know I can count on you to get all the facts to tell the full story.

It turns out that I live in Jim Carr’s riding. Did you know that he holds town halls every so often? Now that would be a great place to ask him some questions.

Drew said, “I wish i could make everyones carbon footprint and general pollution index float above their head for all to see all the time”

If you go into the “global” settings for the planet, there should be an option to turn on “floating stats” for carbon footprint. Might be difficult to find than menu, though. ;o)

Oh look we are saving the world, we are so great. LMAO! These self important idiots make we want to vomit. I wish i could make everyones carbon footprint and general pollution index float above their head for all to see all the time, these hypocrites would have the largest numbers of course. Meanwhile they want us peasants to go without.

Climate change is a lie created by socialists to enlarge government and centralize more of the global economy into fewer hands.

We can thank Europe and north America’s left for this – this is how the left competes with productivity.

The whole thing is bush league and fraud, more like fishy business than real business!

All this is just one giant Ponzi scheme where people focus on Canada because we are easy pickings. Then they can use that to demonstrate what wonderful people they are.

If anyone ever gets the opportunity, try putting this question to the assembled members of any symphony orchestra:
Who among you is the most neurotic?
Dollars to doughnuts, the response will be that all eyes will turn towards the oboe player.
Jim Carr, Trudeau’s Minister of Natural Resources, is supposedly an oboe player.
He claims he has playing experience with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, but in reality he was nothing more than an occasional substitute, in much the same way that Trudeau experienced being a drama teacher, i.e. just a lame, second rate, part time substitute.
Along with the likes of Kirsty Duncan, who lied about being a Nobel Laureate, he can join the list of quasi fakes that make up Trudeau’s cabinet.

First I have to buy a barn. Then I’ll possibly qualify for a portion of Notely’s 5M dough.

The NDP o Liberals have no energy strategy worth discussing. It is absolutely so pathetic.
However, what all this points to is: “how a political party can use lies, poor policy and rhetoric to influence the behaviour of millions of unknowledgeable people using the media. Much of it paid for by taxpayers”.
Sunni ways.
