NDP-Green alliance already killing BC jobs

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The formation of a government by the NDP-Green party alliance in British Columbia is already costing jobs. At least 4500 of them, to be exact. 

Petronas, the Malaysian oil and gas giant has just officially killed its 36 billion dollar investment into a liquefied natural gas mega project in Northern BC.

The project in Port Edward would have been one of the single largest foreign investments in Canadian history. But much like what happened in the days and weeks and now months and years after the election of Rachel Notley in Alberta - companies are deciding that BC isn’t worth the risk with an NDP government.

And the BC NDP are using the same excuses their cousins in Alberta use when oil and gas projects put their assets on fire sale just to escape an NDP created recession. The blame international market prices. And while some of that may be true, it doesn’t explain the booming LNG export markets in more business friendly places around the world - like Texas and Australia.

This isn't just a BC NDP created problem. They only turbo charged the damage by being elected. The BC Liberals, trying to please every fringe wacko, were slow to get the project to approval. Then the Federal Liberals did the same, while competitors raced to get access to their share of the global LNG market.

What Petronas needed in light of slipping global market conditions is the same thing the oil companies that left Alberta and took with them their 30 billion dollars in investment. Petronas needed less government costs gnawing away at their bottom line. The BC NDP promised more.

And, just like in Alberta, it's time to start keeping track of the job losses for BC.Today, 4500 direct will never materialize and dozens, maybe hundreds more will be lost in Alberta because Petronas thought Canada was too risky. All the while, Petronas maintains their investments in Iraq.

ME NOTYOU- I am well versed in historical “utopian” takeovers of nations; and, the millions upon milltions of deaths that resulted. Present day examples also greatly concern me.
I stand by the comments I made in my last post to you, and, ask that you stop prescribing murder here on this site. Thank you.

And some point in time, you will have to come to accept the reality that you are at war with an enemy that is determined to destroy you. The sooner you realize that the better off you will be.

Liberals not interested in peaceful accommodation with you. They are obsessed with their brand of social engineering, and they intend to remake the world – and you – into their image of utopian perfection.

Well, in case you didn’t notice it, Nazi Germany was also utopian.

Pol Pot’s Cambodia was also utopian.

And so was Stalinist Russia.

ME NOTYOU- I am asking you to stop pushing killing Liberals, NDP’s, SJW’s etc…
Some of your posts truly are over the top. As I have previously pointed out, we are not a violent group. If you are trying to organize a militia, please go elsewhere.
Self-defense is quite the opposite of what you are proposing.
Simply put,I choose to fight back with activism, not violence & murder.

Appeasement by any other name is still appeasement.

They have one goal and one goal only: to win and defeat you.

And saying, “Over your dead body” isn’t effective because you are dead.

If JT said anything that made sense, he did say, “If you kill your enemies, they win; if you hate your enemies, they win.”

Yes, you MUST hate your enemies and you MUST kill them; otherwise, they will kill you.

The time for all out war is coming fast: be ready.

Me notyou, I agree that the globalist left is at war against us, eliminating our rights and freedom piece by piece, quite fast. But we are not at the point of physically attacking them, yet, even if I believe it will happen one day because THEY will reach a breaking point. And as I said before, over my dead body before I accept living under sharia. For me, it’s that simple. In the meantime, we must get ready.

That is correct.

ANTIFA is slowly being marginalized, even the US. At this time, ANTIFA (and their affiliates) is the muscle in California. Gov. Moonbeam Bonehead (aka. Jerry Brown) is using thugs to enforce his will over the state. And the migration is beginning from California. Crushing taxes, insane regulation, and mad ANTIFA thugs are driving thousands from California. The Battle of Berkley was significant – a crushing defeat for ANTIFA on their own turf.

As for Canada, it is well known that ANTIFA is moving north and finding support in Ontario, Alberta, and B.C. JT intends to use ANTIFA, like Moonbeam, as his muscle. It’s already happening.

I case you haven’t noticed (which is likely the case) you are at war.

Yes, you are at war with the Progressivist-Sodomites and their SJW allies, because they declared war on you.

Yes, they really have declared war on you, yet, you choose to not fight back. Worse, you cower and engage in appeasement.

It’s time to accept that war is coming – and the better you will be when you finally do.

In the US, you should be aware that war with liberals is brewing. Trump won the election, and the GOP has won enough states to marginalize the Democrats. Liberals are fighting back; but being limp-wristed and childish, liberals have resorted to autistic screeching and wailing. They know they cannot win this fight, so I suspect the next step is mass suicides. (And given that premise, the winning just doesn’t stop.)

Even Michael Moore has given up on the Democrats. He choice now seems to be ANTIFA, or eating himself into a Dominio’s induced coma.

If the left shoots first, ME NOTYOU is correct’ its called self- defense. Our Police can’t be trusted; The Ont. Police Union campaigned for Wynne. The same Police let 40 antifa beat up Kevin Johnson last month.

The NDP in MB did so much damage here for which it will take a very long time to recover from & still some stupid Manitobans are angry at our Premier because he’s putting the brakes on spending. When will these people learn you can’t spend more than what you earn. I call what’s happening & will happen under the NDP a travesty, all those billions evaporating, because all they do is listen to environmentalists. Their economy will slump, more people on assistance, the same merry go round over again & the voters don’t learn, well I have empathy for those who voted for Clarke, but for the others, you got what you deserve & 4 yrs down the road will be long, torturous & like it will never end.
As for ME NOT YOU, I don’t ever want to be part of the USA. Instead of spending energy on separating, that energy would be better spent at rallying people to not vote for the left wing parties. With Trudeau at the helm, Canada is falling behind, all the more to fight for our country & boot them out to kingdom come next election, but violence against anyone to make a point is absolutely ridiculous.
commented 2017-07-26 21:59:34 -0400
ME NOTYOU – you are really pushing the violence on many threads….why? We are not a violent group here, and, your repeated calls to attack “enemies” and shoot liberals, NDP etc… is not appreciated.

No need to raise a military.

Declare your independence by acts of violence against the NDP.

If they resist, petition the Trump Presidency to rescue Western Canada from Progressivists-Sodomites and their SJW allies.

President Trump will win big, as a result.

Western Canada is annexed and becomes part of the US. US wealth will virtually double overnight.

The Montana State National Guard could overwhelm the tiny Canadian military in the few hours.

President Trump can save the lives of millions and make the US bigger in the process. What’s left of Canada will wither away.

But am I correct?

Texas’ energy sector is exploding. Booming. Bursting. The US is close to leading the world in energy production. Three states are driving it.

Canada, a whole country of enormous potential is mired in endless destruction.

Why?

A succession Liberal and NDP governments.

Your democracy is an utter failure, because you have two left-wing parties and a gang of CINOs in the other.

The solution is to kill the King.

Yes, kill the Kill. Because your elections will not save you.

This country is way too leftard, with leftist gov’s elected at all levels and in most provinces and with the leftard-in-chief in Ottawa. It may sound harsh to say, but I truly believe that the leftards need a reality check and the fastest our economy sinks and the idiots start experiencing real poverty, the better it is for the country. If you absolutely need a job to survive, move somewhere else in the meantime. I don’t see any other possibility, except resorting to violence which is unacceptable. The left will not understand anything until they crash.

It’s time for Alberta independence. Raise a military and start using it against our enemies. The way things are suppose to be done.

Ms. G-R,

Don’t worry! I read in the Financial Post that Horgan will attract other investors, like Shell. Guess he did not get the memo that Shell said screw Alberta gas and oil after NDP destruction.

I have two kids in the interior. One in FSJ, so he’s screwed. The other in Kelowna getting some work from Chief Louie’s entrepreneurship, so maybe he is good to go.

Hey BC! You deserve what you got by dissing Christy Clark just like the Canadian voters dissing Stephen Harper! You don’t learn from Alerta’s mistake of voting NDP do you? With a NDP/Green leftist job killing coalition, you got what you deserved!

I can tell everyone right now that, here in Texas, we welcome Canada leaving the fossil fuel industry.

The Permian Basin is a major energy play and it’s growing fast. When oil returns to over $50 per/BL, the cash will come rolling into to Texas. It’s rolling in already, but Canada’s loss will be our spectacular gain.

Alberta and B.C. are determined to become wastelands, the help of the Progressivist-Sodomites that have come into government.

Oh, what will Canadians do? I can suggest something that all mature countries can and must do when faced with such a dilemma…

Kill the King.

Yes, Canadians must kill their kings – all of them.

Take them out; it’s easy; they are unarmed.

JT has no muskets to defend himself. The Canadian military does not exist and will be powerless to stop a rebellion. If Canadian soldiers get in the way and refuse to join, kill them as well.

Notley’s time is running short. The NDP is headed to not just defeat, but a crushing genocide. The NDP must be wiped out wholesale. Destroy the party; wipe out its members.

As for B.C., I’m sure there are a few patriots there will rifles who can take out their premier. In fact, I would encourage the Liberals there to excite violent opposition to the NDP government.

If you want to end liberals, you have to get your hands dirty.

Stephen E asked, “Which is more of a job killer? NDP or Baby Doc Trudeau and his gender balanced band more merry idiots?”

Oooh, that’s a hard one. Not sure I can answer that. Let’s just say that each is equally good at screwing up Canada using their own unique brand of fascism.

This is the result of real foreign interference through foreign funded eco-radical and first nations groups.

Hey BC!!! Welcome to the Ontario way of doing things. Spend your way to oblivion, raise taxes/regulations, chase away highly mobile capital investments, pay more for services, and watch your economic prosperity go down the crap hole, increase the debt load on your kids. Funny how the left worries about the global temperature in 2100 but don’t care one wit about the jobs environment 10 years or less from now.

Bahhhh! No problem! This job loss stuff used to worry me – but not any more.

They’ll just replace those lost private sector jobs with public sector jobs – you know, pretend work in more make-believe jobs. I mean, it’s employment figures that count, right?

And who cares if they continue to borrow and borrow and borrow? It’s not like WE will ever have to pay up, eh? So relax, settle down! Just smile and gratefully pass it all on to the young dummies who voted for it.

Whether on land or under water, oil and gas naturally surface constantly. This is known as natural “seeping”. We may as well harvest it and clean up the ecosystems affected by seeps. “A 2003 report from the National Research Council estimates that, on average, approximately 160,000 tonnes of petroleum enter North American waters through natural seeps each year.” -NOAA, Response and Restoration

commented 2017-07-26 14:23:24 -0400
Yes. Thank you. The election of Trudeau Liberals, the appointment of their minions put the project on a slow track to oblivion. The election of the speNDP/GREEN, and their unholy alliance was the coup de grace for the death of this project.
And… There is someone in the wide world of media that can correctly pronounce the company name of Petronas.

So, now that the BC NDP are flushing the BC economy down the toilet, and the Alberta NDP are continuing their reign of terror, who’s teat is Quebec and Ontario going to suck their combined 13.5 billion dollar Provincial Equalization welfare money from?
