Mulcair’s NDP could “keep the oil in the ground” if they stopped using it — but living fossil fuel free isn't their REAL agenda

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

So the federal NDP is having a convention in Edmonton. It’s a bit of chutzpah: the anti-oil, anti-fossil fuels, anti-pipelines extremists meeting there, to talk about throwing everyone in town out of work by "keeping the oil in the ground."

But what about Thomas Mulcair? He’s smarter than his average supporter by probably 30 IQ points.

Yet when asked by Peter Mansbridge, Mulcair says if the assorted fruits and nuts at the NDP convention vote to “keep the oil in the ground,” he’ll go along with them.

Hey, I know a way to keep the oil in the ground: Stop using it. Don’t fly. Don’t drive. Don’t heat or cool your home. Don’t use anything with plastic.

Of course the NDP won’t do that. They don’t really want to live without fossil fuels. What they really want is to kick Alberta when it’s down.

Could you imagine if any political leader was asked: Would you shut down Ontario's auto sector? Prairie agriculture? Montreal’s aviation industry?

But that’s the state of politics and media in Canada today: It’s OK to talk about euthanizing hundreds of thousands of jobs, as long as they’re in a conservative province.

Can you imagine this clown praises Notley! She is dismantling Alberta. I can’t stand Trudeau but this idiot would have been worse I think. But trying to choose between Trudeau and Mulclair is like trying to decided which bullet you want to be shot by.

Ignorant Frank still doesn’t know our precious oil sands don’t have tar in it. Frank is just another useful idiot that the left-wing ENVIRONMENTAL groups use all the time to spew their garbage. Poor stupid sap. Unfortunately, there are millions of ignorant, uninformed, clueless Canadians that are like poor frank. But they are the first ones who will use our oil and gas products with total hipocracy. We really, really don’t want any of these jerks to use our oil and gas products. Walk, go live in the bush or wherever else you want but NEVER, NEVER USE OUR OIL AND GAS PRODUCTS. You would never last 2 hours without our oil and gas, you are a total waste of even our air. Now get lost.

Why aren’t the NDP protesting the Ontario automobile manufactures? Reducing the number of cars would reduce the need for and use of oil. Let’s start our green environment there instead of in Alberta. It doesn’t have anything to,do with the fact that the Auto Unions are strong supporters of,both the Liberals and NDP………..does it?

Uh, Frank, tar comes from coal, oil comes from the oil sands. Just consider it the worlds largest environmental cleanup project.

Frank if high oil and a low dollar was the reason for Ontarios demise, why are they not doing great now? Talk about misleading LMAO!
commented 2016-04-09 00:59:48 -0400
Frank guess what lots of the world does not want wind turbines either , but the left shoves those down our throats and makes us pay for them. By the way we do not need the left for anything, you seem to always need us though LMAO!

Frank guess what they do want it moron, and the NEP was the rape of ALberta and ALberta has more than the oilsands idiot. And oil is not at that price fool. And water is needed for all oil products moron. Now go get some woman beating oil from the middle east like a good fool. And if no one wants it then why was their so much investment you halfwit?
commented 2016-04-09 00:46:51 -0400
Frank, you can show us all by going without oil products – lead by example or crawl back into your ass.

Guess what, the world doesn’t want Alberta tar.
It’s too costly to refine.
It takes seven barrels of water to wash the sand out of one barrel of Alberta tar.
Oh, BTW, it’s only redeeming factor is it’s cheap. A barrel of tar has a global price of $8-$10 (as of Jan. 2016). However, no one wants it because in costs so much to refine it.
In times of plenty it is real hard to peddle. So the scamsters date all the way back to Loughheed.
Maybe Trudeau Pater’s National Energy Plan had some merit, n’est pas?
Incidentally, if Alberta tar was actually being sold in barrels, an oil barrel retails for $78 U.S.
Yep, try to build an economy on misleading Canadians.

Mansbridge is NOT in love with Mulcair. Check the body language. That will be his death sentence.

OK Tommie the Commie, time to pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and smile, smile, smile.

The funny thing about that selfie interview between Jane Mansfield and Tom mullkerry is that they seemed sincere, — as if there were two adults discussing something really really serious

Or better yet have all the kooks kept under the ground.

Hey Tom, you still owe Canadians 4-million dollars. Was that amount that you were paid to support the liberal clown? I’ll just bet that it was. Step down and go back to France.

Egil great idea,but first Prime Minister But Head would have to get permission from Quebec , but i don’t think they will allow it because then they would not get all the secret money they get from the OPEC Countries this is why they do not want the energy east pipeline . Dam I let the cat out of the bag .

Hammered in Saskatchewan, about to lose in Manitoba, did poorly in federal election. NDP has gone from “Orange Crush” to “Orange Crushed”
commented 2016-04-08 17:33:22 -0400
I tend to agree with you Egil. For domestic use only, Canadas oil reserves are very sustainable.
commented 2016-04-08 17:14:31 -0400
The federal government should put an import duty on oil and gas. There, problem solved.

Why did the Conservative Party not do that when they were in power?

NDP SUCKS! I miss the good old days of Audry McLaughlin. In Question Period she would always start with “Mister Speaker, I am confused.” Yeah Audry, we know , we know.

Svend Robinson was another classic individual that I miss. Good old Sven couldn’t control himself when he stole a ring at a jewellery store. How does he react? Good old Sven had to take some stress leave because he was under a lot of strain. Good call Sven, good call.

Libby Davies is now eating 25 million calories every day and is slated to start her new reality series. She is planning on ballooning to 600 pounds and the goal is to tear down the house to get her out and on her way to the fat farm.

Ezra, at the present moment I can’t say for sure if Alberta is even a conservative province anymore. But you are right that it is about punishing Alberta. It is too bad that they cannot grasp that punishing Alberta is also punishing themselves.
