Notley hires anti-fossil fuel activist to “solve” Alberta's oil price crisis

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

With just six months left on the job, Alberta’s socialist premier has convened three “experts” to solve the oil price crisis plaguing the oil patch.

While oil prices have rebounded in the rest of the world, Western Canadian Select remains at rock bottom, trading at a $40 per barrel discount.

But Premier Notley knows how to fix this, the same way she fixed the unemployment epidemic; hire more bureaucrats! It seems to be her solution to all that ails us.

Notley’s three new special envoys are supposed to focus on creating more domestic upgrading and refining capacity which is a solution in search of a problem.

Canada doesn’t need refineries. We need pipelines to tidewater, to the United States, to everywhere.

According to a February Scotiabank analysis, pipeline constraints were conservatively estimated to cost the Canadian economy 15.6B this year alone.

Besides, how does Notley propose we move all the newly refined gasoline and jet fuel without a pipeline?

By focusing on upgrading rather than export pipelines, Notley tipped her hand revealing that she's not really all that interested in solving the oil price disaster.

But Notley has another tell. Her new hire, or rather re-hire of Toronto based anti-fossil fuel NDP activist Brian Topp, gives away Notley’s true intentions for the oil patch.

It’s been a while since we last talked about Topp, so today, I’ll give a crash course on who exactly Notley has just put in charge of Alberta’s economic future.

It is always easier to destroy than to build.

Recorded history proves the leftist governments, both Liberal and NDP equally, have a knack for destroying a country’s social fabric and economy structure all the while convincing enough idiot voters to vote for them again and again.

Then the people for a brief moment in time usually when the threat of poverty looms over their heads vote in a right leaning government and expect them to fix the destruction in usually in a couple terms.

After a couple terms with a right leaning government in power, the people feel their pocket book now has more cash so they once again vote in a left leaning government and the cycle goes around again.

The problem is that the right leaning governments cannot pull the country back out as far as the leftist government dragged the country down.

The cycle is a “take three steps into the pit and crawl desperately back out by one step.”

It gets harder and harder to pull the country out of the hole the leftist governments dig us into.

Eventually it will no longer be possible to climb out of the cesspit and a revolution must take place to reset everything back to the start.

Well, that’s my thoughts for the day.

Topp is a Leap Manifesto advocate, like all Ontario elitists, who fits the Notley agenda to a tee. Notely has very poorly served Albertans by pushing her socialist ideologies and pulling the plug on all pipelines to the hearty applause of her NDP buddies in BC and the Trudeau federal regime. Notley has been the worst for Alberta and I, for one, will dance heartily when she and her socialist government are given what they deserve: a last look at the turned backs of Albertans they attempted to destroy while they pack up and leave, hopefully forever.

Peter Netterville.. Indeed!… Just as it is going to take beyond Trump in 2020 to undo the deep damage done by Barak Assalamualaikum Obama in his eight years of stacking government agencies and the judiciary with his “America must apologize to the world” butt-kissers…

Do not be to hard on Notley, she is just doing her job, helping to drag Canada down the road to redundancy and the new Third World Order. When the UN says jump, she asks, ‘How High’?
Along with her Marxist friend, Justin Trudeau, she fully intends to ruin her Province and the Country, readying it for the ‘real’ influx of dark skinned things with sharp knives and a blood lust.
Oil will not be needed until the last White has died from pulling barrels on carts……Lol.

It is going to take the Conservatives in Alberta a long time to undo the destruction caused by Notley, my guess is at least 3 terms, 12 years, to see the economy turn around.

This is why we must keep reminding fence-sitters about how Notley is robbing us of economic opportunities. NDP truly are destroyers.
