Minister Sohi claims courts, not Liberals, killed Northern Gateway. Here are the facts.

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi is a bad Cabinet Minister and an even worse historian.

Sohi is one of those rare endangered species — an Alberta Liberal MP. As a result, he’s been given high-profile roles in Trudeau's cabinet, first at infrastructure and now natural resources, and he’s been awful at both.

A couple of days ago Sohi penned an op-ed, published in the Calgary Herald with the unironic headline “Alberta, this government has always had your back and always will.”

Sure, they've always had our back — albeit, full of knives.

Sohi wrote, “the long-term solution lies in building pipelines that allow our resources to get to non-US markets. That is what our government is focused on and that is what I'm working each day to deliver.”

Then to support his op-ed, Sohi went on CBC’s Power and Politics to proclaim the same; that the Liberals are really pipeline champions. That’s where he let slip a real whopper!

“Any intelligent person will tell you that Northern Gateway was overturned by the federal court of appeal...not moving forward on Energy East was a decision of the company."

But is that true? Did the courts kill the Northern Gateway Pipeline? Do all intelligent people know this “fact” or is this just revisionist history that only exists in the mind of a failing and detached cabinet minister who doesn’t know his own portfolio?

Today I fact check Sohi and remind him of Order in Council 2016-1047, dated November 25, 2016.

It was brought forward by Sohi’s Liberal predecessor at Natural Resources, Jim Carr, and the order compelled the National Energy Board to ignore the findings of the joint review panel and terminate the existing construction permits for Northern Gateway.

Cancelling the Northern Gateway might be the only campaign promise Trudeau ever kept.

Great reporting Sheila. The only way this information will get out to the masses would be if Scheer would grow a pair and do his job, stand up in the house and expose this BS. Then maybe, just maybe, the MSM would cover it. Otherwise, preaching to the choir.

Another Earth shattering expose on those nasty, nasty Liberals, Sheila Gunn-Reid!
Earth shattering as in shattering the hallowed ground the Liberals (and the left in general) think they walk on…with the facts and the truth!
There has to be some way of getting the rest of Canada to WTFU and smell the coffee!
Like maybe some ‘edgy’ publicity stunts, whose attraction and then reaction of officialdom, will HAVE to get Media Party attention…or something like that, to – BANG! – get the message out beyond the rarified air of the suppressed and oppressed souls of THEREBEL nation. To borrow a favourite word of the left, we need to be PROACTIVE!

n.b. To any law enforcement monitoring mine or THEREBEL’s content…the “BANG!”, used above was being used figuratively, not literally…

The absolute arrogance of this liberal clown is truly amazing. Lies and deception are trade marks of the devil and his minions.

The Hon. Mr. Sohi is an outstanding Liberal cabinet minister…we should publicize his wise words far and wide on FaceBook, Twitter and elsewhere. Along with Sheila’s commentary of course.

Another explanation for the killing of the pipelines can be viewed by using an analogy similar to Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon .
Killing of pipelines by Trudeau ; Trudeau’s Chief Advisor is former Head of World Wildlife Fund Canada ( hates Alberta); WWF Canada funded by Tides International ( US leftist Umbrella Corp); Tides funded by US leftist billionaires –
( ;former Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson is past Head of Tides Canada ; Gregor Robertson is close friend of Trudeau .

Canada’s misfortune; A convicted terrorist (arrested & jailed for assembling explosives & training naxalites (communist extremists in india) has become a cabinet minister in this once great country.
Most of the turdo’s liberal cabinet are/were directly involved in criminals/extremists activities or has links with them, rest are out right liars.

Thanks for reminding us about how misleading Liberal ministers are. They’ve always had a philosophy of lying to further their own ends. They pragmatically use every excuse to look good while being wicked. I don’t like the NDP but at least they stick to their principles. But Liberals have historically been the party of taking advantage of the electorate. It’s time we agitate against these establishment pigs at the public trough.

Liberals lie so glibly because they all take their cue from the man at the top, who does it on a daily basis – the Boy Blunder – and the man behind the scenes propping up Boy Blunder – Buttskie – who must keep pinching himself every day, for being the real ruler of Canada…

Liberals are a sub human species who like to kill humans, especially white ones. May they all rot in hell, along with all their lies. How many times do they have to ruin everything before people stop voting for them. What part of Liberal is it, that people do not understand?

I think a person has to have at least one generation before him in this Great Country before they’re even eligible to become a politician.

Johnathan Cox : But he fits in so well with the rest of the “team”…..yes??
