McKenna confronts The Rebel, snubs fair question about Site C dam

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

It’s well known that our Federal and BC governments are hostile to oil and gas, but what’s incomprehensible is why they oppose the low carbon, clean, renewable energy from the Site C hydroelectric dam currently under construction in Fort St. John.

That’s why at a press conference in Vancouver last week, I tried asking the Federal Minister of Climate Change, Catherine McKenna, how her government feels hydro-electricity projects fit into the overall fight against climate change.

McKenna's attempts to make this about nicknames or tone policing aside, it was a fair question given the government's push to reduce emissions, and loud complaints from environmentalists about impacts of Site C.

During the BC election campaign, John Horgan promised that should he become Premier, he would send Site C for review to the BC Utilities Commission.

This past week, BCUC released its 300 page report and the findings aren’t good for the future of this project.

Yet, scientists who support the project aren’t convinced that the report was presented without bias or with the correct factual analysis.

Watch as I share the report findings with you and look at the three potential outcomes the commission studied.

It seems this report not only ignores major implications of climate change policy being implemented at all three levels of government, but also relies heavily on input from foreign funded environmentalists.

If climate change truly is the "greatest" or at least "one of the greatest” threats of our time, shouldn't a legitimate question about the role of hydro electricity in fighting that threat have been taken seriously?

We think so, and so do BC residents whose lives are directly impacted by the fate of the Site C dam.

Frank, you troll, why haven’t you addressed the article or any argument about climate change? Could it be you would rather play from the liberal handbook and deflect rather than try to argue the points? Why won’t you address how McKenna wouldn’t address the question about Site C being good or bad for the climate change mantra the liberals are pushing, why won’t you address how your beloved scientists had to threaten to sue the UN to get their names off their report for the IPCC after the UN changed their findings for the executive media summary to suit their agenda? Why won’t you address the fact that the sun controls the climate and contrary to Gore and Suzuki, it does not accept money to change it’s affects on our climate, as it has done for all eternity?
It is very telling Frank that you have not replied directly to these facts, because you can’t, instead you want to argue about a US politician whom isn’t even mentioned in this article.

Andy, she will need a gortex coat and booties, Pet Smart has some great stuff! My neighbour’s poodle is quite happy to romp in the snow when she dressed for it!

Tammie… I think Frank was hoping to “run” his pet poodle in the next Iditarod?…

When I visiting Alaska there was quite a bit going on, additionally, I didn’t see any dogs running the place.

Wow!… I love it!…. “It’s what McCain’s team said..”??? You mean that “team” of nincompoops who shunted Palin aside because she was a rising star the minute she was announced as V-P candidate?

Andy Neimers,

It really says a lot about your lack of intelligence, when you think Sarah Palin is a Mensa candidate – despite the people who have worked with her that have called her a moron.

Drew Wakariuk,

It’s not whatever I say – it’s what McCain’s team said. Read all about it in Game Change.

Andy Neimers,

My dog could run Alaska. Nothing happens there.

Frank, the McCain campaign reeled her in the same way many tried to do with Trump. Big mistake.
commented 2017-11-08 05:06:59 -0500
Given Climate Barbie’s evasiveness on the Site C project, I have to believe that the Horgan/Weaver Tango have indeed discovered those Star Trek “dilithium crystals” as the clean power alternative?…
commented 2017-11-08 04:57:49 -0500
Frank.. And she successfully ruled as Alaska’s Governor all those years as a complete ditz?.. I would dearly love to know who gave you the insight that she was a “fucking moron”… Or are you just talking the usual HOHIMER SHIT again?…
commented 2017-11-08 04:19:21 -0500
Frank Hohimer yeah sure , whatever you say.
commented 2017-11-08 03:07:39 -0500
Drew Wakariuk,

I am not talking about liberals or the media that has that opinion of Sarah Palin – I am talking about the people who actually worked with her during McCain’s Presidential run, who realized that she is a fucking moron and they made a HUGE mistake with picking her as Vice President.

I think they know more than you do, since they worked with her.
commented 2017-11-08 01:08:31 -0500
Frank Hohimer how do you know how big the support is on either side of this issue? Did the left tell you some more BS?
commented 2017-11-08 01:07:43 -0500
Frank Hohimer Palin is smarter than you, you seem to have fallen for the BS said about her, try looking it up,the left lied about her comment. And James Woods is a genius and he puts down Justin.

It’s funny because “Climate Barbie” who I call the “Climate Hag,” because with that hair load of hers she looks positively “Witchy.” She will probably, at this point, be recorded in history as being Catherine “Climate Barbie” McKenna. Can’t wait to see it in the history books.
commented 2017-11-07 19:10:57 -0500
Poor climate Barbie feels hurt.
If your daughters do go into politics I sincerely hope they will be better equipped in the brain department than you are Blondie.
commented 2017-11-07 18:33:52 -0500
We can get rid of these teet sucking useless politicians by forcing them to submit a budget before taking office and make it illegal to go into deficit. These morons would not know what to do. Also eliminate equalization. You know how fast provinces would be wanting to build pipelines and extract their natural resources? This phone fucking grandstanding for green energy would be over with as people would turf politicians who force sky high taxes on them to virtue signal.

Climate Barbie is a complete joke along with all her Liberal cohorts. The world would be a better place without any of them in it.
commented 2017-11-07 17:56:51 -0500
Stephen Eisenberg, you made fun of the colour of her hair! She specifically asked we don’t do that!!

If Climate Barbie wasn’t so damn bad at her job.. or is it good at her job? It is a job that should not even exist as it is. It is a position that is nothing but a political front for control and social engineering. I don’t even recognise her position. It is pretty hard to have respect for her in the first place. Her role is such a sham it is hard not to joke.
Climate Barbie the minister of nothing. This government is actually taking away from honest discussion and planning for the natural climate challenges ahead. How they can expect us to continue to believe shutting down Canadian oil and gas , and hobbling just about every other resource in our rich country is for the good of the planet is beyond me. Climate Barbie, listen up. Everyone knows the truth. That is why we laugh at you. This is nothing but a political set up by many foreign players who padded Justin’s campaign and the liberal party to get him in. It is all about pay back, at the expense of Canada.

Wow! “Climate Barbie” sure has a chip on her shoulder! Rebel Media sure is having an impact. Leftists were certain they shut down any criticisms when Sun TV was forced to shut down. The old adage: Be Careful What You Wish For. You May Get It!

Gotta love James Woods.

Tell Climate Barbie to stop calling us Deniers ❤️ We KNOW the truth and there IS NOT any Climate Change – it IS #ClimateFraud – Fact and we WILL NOT submit or surrender to that #ClimateCult ❤️🔥

@ Frank Hoe “I haven’t proven anyone’s point.”
Yeah you did Frank.
commented 2017-11-07 16:29:38 -0500
“at” Sarah.
commented 2017-11-07 16:29:35 -0500
Frank, you have proven yet again everyone’s point that you are just a troll that can’t answer direct questions or comment on what the article is actually about. The article is about McKenna not answer a direct question about the Site C project and it’s benefits to the climate. You do remember the climate thing don’t you Frank, the subject which you won’t reply to facts on like why the scientists you love to refer to who you say support the hoax of AGW, those that authored the ICCP report on climate change then had to threaten to sue the UN to get their names off the report because the UN generated executive media summary changed their findings to suit the UN AGW hoax. You deserve a similar well earned moniker like McKenna has for the same reasons, neither one of you can answer.

Frank, you really don’t see how you made Muta Ween’s point? Take another shot Sarah.
First rule of politics for you Climate Barbie, free of charge, never let them see you bleed.
