I want to let you know how bad Justin Trudeau’s anti-pipeline law really is.
We already knew how bad C-69 was when it was introduced as a bill. And of course, it goes without saying, all the bizarre conditions and regulations would only apply to Canadian industry. There would be no gender analysis or Aboriginal analysis or queer analysis or feminist analysis of oil brought in from the U.S. by rail, or brought in from Saudi Arabia by tanker.
It’s the war on the west, war on Alberta, war on oil and gas, war on entrepreneurs. It’s like Pierre Trudeau’s national energy program.
But look, a Trudeau’s going to Trudeau. Catherine McKenna, with her fake Kardashian accent — she’s as shallow as a puddle. But what about people who are supposed to stand up for Alberta, and its core industry? What about, say, Alberta’s senators?
Paula Simons, one of Trudeau’s Senators in Alberta, voted for C-69, and wrote a long post about it on Facebook. She notes that she was:
...a member of the Standing Senate Committee on Energy, the Environment and Natural Resources. As an Albertan, and as a committee member, I had a special responsibility to research and study Bill C-69," and to that end, she "spent months meeting with stake-holders and lobbyists, and listening to witnesses at hearings across the country.
Here's how Paula Simons ended her post:
But will Bill C-69, as amended, make it easier for good projects to get approved than is the case right now? Will it make it possible to get projects built. (...) Yes. I fought my hardest for Alberta, without apology.
No, not really. TONIGHT, I’ll take you through the final version of the bill, with amendments, that was only finally posted just a few days ago.
Six times it says no pipelines will be built that don't take into account how "groups of women, men and gender-diverse people may experience policies.”
Paula Simons denies this.
But she's pulling a Trudeau on you. Here's what the final version of the law says:
The Commission must make its recommendation taking into account — in light of, among other things, any Indigenous knowledge that has been provided to the Commission and scientific information and data — all considerations that appear to it to be relevant and directly related to the pipeline, including
(a) the environmental effects, including any cumulative environmental effects;
(b) the safety and security of persons and the protection of property and the environment;
(c) the health, social and economic effects, including with respect to the intersection of sex and gender with other identity factors
Of course the commission should take into account environmental effects. Of course people should be protected.
But number three is trangenderism, and other identity factors. That means being gay, being black, being whatever.
And even that first part — "Indigenous knowledge plus scientific information." Well, which is it? I love Aboriginal traditions. But those traditions don’t include building pipelines. How can the law, the binding law, say that the commission "must" listen to Aboriginal folklore about pipelines? What does that mean? Who decides what it is? What sources?
And Paula Simons says this will make approving pipelines easier?
For the first time in memory, Canada’s oil production actually fell this year, while the U.S. is producing so much, it’s now a net energy exporter — and it even exports to Canada.
Paula Simons is a liar, just like her boss Justin Trudeau is.
And they both do everything in their power to undermine Alberta — including passing a new law that makes new pipeline construction impossible in any practical sense.
