Justin Trudeau makes bashing western Canada part of his reelection plan

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Did you see the letter from six premiers — five provincial premiers, and Bob McLeod, the premier of the Northwest Territories?

I’ll read some of it to you:

We are writing on behalf of the Governments of Ontario, New Brunswick, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta and the Northwest Territories. Collectively, our five provinces and territory represent 59 per cent of the Canadian population and 63 per cent of Canada’s GDP. We are central to Canada’s economy and prosperity, and it is of the utmost importance that you consider our concerns with bills C-69 and C-48.

Bill C-48 is the tanker ban off the north coast of B.C. Except it just bans the export of Alberta oil from the north coast of B.C. There are still U.S. tankers going up and down the B.C. coast with oil from Alaska.

Bill C-69 is the absurd bill championed by the absurd Catherine McKenna. It’s a bill that would force any oil or gas or mining project in Canada go through a carbon analysis. But not foreign imports of oil from Saudi Arabia.

C-69 doesn’t even have to be put in place for it to do its damage — as I told you a few months ago, the National Energy Board recorded the first decline in Canadian oil production in about a decade — even though global demand for oil and gas has never been higher, and is expected to continue to climb.

Why waste time in Canada, fighting with Trudeau, asking you to do a gender analysis, when you can invest in Texas or Louisiana or Australia?

So we’ve lost over $100 billion so far.

There is a national unity problem here. Because the federal government — well, it would be nice if they actually championed jobs for the rest of us, other than just the corrupt cronies at Bombardier and SN-Lavalin and Loblaws. But at the very least, perhaps they could stop blocking natural job creation. But they won’t.

Don’t take it from me, or the conservative premiers. Take it from, well, Canadians:

Here’s a poll done by Angus Reid earlier this year — it asked an unusual question:

Who would you vote for — federally — if there were a western separatist party around?

I’m not surprised that in Alberta 40 per cent of people would mark that X. But it’s also the number one choice in every western province — it would be in a three-way tie in Manitoba. I note that the Conservatives would be the second-place choice one very province.

The premiers are worried about national disunity. Because Canadians are worried about national disunity. But Trudeau is saying that by raising those concerns, the premiers are creating national disunity. By raising the concerns. By reflecting their constituents, their voters, their industries — by representing them — they’re creating a problem.

In fact, I think Justin Trudeau would sacrifice Canadian unity to win again — what do you think...?

NEXT: Edmonton Sun columnist Lorne Gunter joins me to talk more about this pressing issue.

Ontario was a have not Province from 08 – 16 because of the dirty, lyin’ Corrupt leftist McGuinty / Wynne Regime. Don’t blame Stephen Harper – His Government was a BLESSING ❤️ Whereas LEFTIST Governments are a CURSE 🤢 Fact ❤️🇨🇦🇮🇱💙

Maga, the west has been treated the same by Trudeau as the East (especially GTA) was by Harper.

Ontario was a have-not from 2008 to 2016. It’s hardly shocking as to how well that overlaps with the Harper era.

Love the way Missy Stephenson just ignores the the presence of Fibber McSquinty and The Lyin’ Lezzy during those “have not” years…
commented 2019-06-15 21:12:13 -0400
Andrew Stephenson that is complete BS. Harper is not responsible for Ontario’s Liberal government wrecking the province. Let me know when a Western company gets treated like Bombardier or SNC Lavalin.

Andrew Stephenson you better not use our health care system, ,many single use plastic products, and we know those are to be banned by left wing geniuses like you.

Andrew Stephenson the east was never mistreated by Harper, he just treated Alberta with respect , and i would rather be around decent Albertan’s than low life progressives that think they own us and we have to jump when they say jump. Sorry but we do not just bend over for Socialist tyrants no matter how much it makes you upset. Now go mollycoddle Quebec like a good sheep. LMAO! The East needs us , we do not need them.

Trudeau is making Goo Goo eyes at the UK, fishing for trade deals when the UK leaves the EU.
This is probably the first time he has ever done anything productive since he became ‘Dic-traitor’… He is likely being prompted by his Civil Servants.

“And Turdeau is going to IMPOSE the carbon tax on Alberta…how does that work, exactly? …Pardon my language, but what a f#€k!n¿ scam. …”

Yes, all of it is a scam. The financial rebate will be minute in comparison to all the taxes/fees/levies imposed. As with all the scams perpetrated by the Red Tent (be it federal or provincial it is the same Red Tent) what the people pay always greatly exceeds any benefits and/or returns.

But not to worry for CBC will wrap it up in a shiny bow and sell that propaganda to the mindless sheeple who will believe that they are saving the environment.

And Turdeau is going to IMPOSE the carbon tax on Alberta…how does that work, exactly? The Feds will take our money, launder it through a make-work, UN/Globalist program, which employs hundreds of taxpayer paid worker-bees, who will then decide how much (and to whom) up to 90% of said money will be returned to Alberta taxpayers in the form of ‘generous’ government rebates. Pardon my language, but what a f#€k!n¿ scam. When do we rise up and finally put an end to Government?

Energy ministers react to Feds decision on Bill C 69

Ottawa has no respect for the resource producers in this country. The country is too big for central government. We are all too different. Maybe we will let them buy some oil and gas from us someday.
Let THEM eat cake.

“Andrew Stephenson please tell me why the Liberals whine about the politics of division when they are the worst offenders?”

Now you did it, you opened the door to the leftard troll to pontificate its propaganda and it did.

I don’t think any government is NOT divisive. The country’s interests are too disparate to really achieve anything but the faintest whiff of division.

The difference is, now Alberta’s on the losing side, so we hear the whining a whole lot more. It’s not even particularly Trudeaus’ fault that oil prices dropped (pipelines won’t solve the problem of the palatability of oil sands with WCS at 40, rather than the 70 or 80 it was 5 years ago). But here we are. It’s not that the current government is any more divisive than any other, it’s that Alberta’s not the one running the show anymore.

Back in the day when the East struggled under the crushing burden of Dutch Disease as Harper pandered solely to Alberta, the economic devastation far exceeded anything Alberta’s feeling now. Yet, no crisis in national unity. Because Ontarians are better than that.

To put it crudely, we’re not more divided. Albertans are just whiny little bitches who constantly throw tantrums when nobody pays attention to them. The brats of confederation.

Off topic.. Hey Andrew S.. what’s your take on this?… "

Oddly, I agree with Pompeo on this one – it’s probably Iran being jerks, either for the hell of it or to try and manipulate the oil markets and prevent the entire region from going bankrupt.

Trudeau thinks drilling holes in the life boat (Canada) will sink the only the section of people he does not like. He does not understand why they want to throw him overboard. The reason someone is usually dispatched in the life boat is not so they can be eaten. It is because they have become a danger to everyone,s survival.
Lost at sea Trudeau throws the desalinization water filter pump over board confident in his leadership. The dehydrated survivors promptly throw Trudeau over board.

Anyone who voted for this clown is stupider than he is. And anyone who votes for him again is pretty much brain dead. If he gets in again it shows that we are not wanted in Canada or respected so we should leave.

“Wait until the bashers aren’t receiving their transfer payments, and their standard of living becomes ghetto. Critical thinking skills are certainly not strong in the bashers, because they don’t make the connection,…”
Yes we may have to ‘go Galt’
“I swear by my life, and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.”
What would de Tocqueville make of our current fix?

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years…”

‘’Going Galt’ means recognizing that the needs of others do not give them a claim to your time, effort, and achievements.

‘Going Galt’ means shrugging off unearned guilt, refusing to support your own destroyers, refusing to give them what Ayn Rand termed “the sanction of the victim.”

It means taking the moral high ground by explicitly rejecting as evil the premise of “self-sacrifice” that they sell to you as a virtue— in fact “self-sacrifice” is an invitation to suicide."
