Oil imports from OPEC nations increase under “feminist” PM Trudeau

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

The latest numbers from Canada’s National Energy Board show oil imports at an all time high since 2012 at almost 760,000 barrels per day. American oil makes up over half the oil we import and the U.S. have essentially become our competitor largely due to unlocking their shale potential using horizontal drilling and fracking techniques. 

We’re selling our oil at a discounted price and buying it back at regular price when we could be supplying eastern Canada with our own resource if we had a pipeline and if some of the refineries in the east would upgrade their facilities in order to process it.

But perhaps the most alarming thing about the increase in imports is that we’re getting more of our oil from OPEC countries. Those imports have increased from about 26 to 33 percent, and make up about one third of Canadian imports according to an article in the Financial Post.

We’re importing oil from places like Algeria and Saudi Arabia where women are treated worse than second class citizens and can face being stoned to death for things that wouldn’t even remotely be considered a crime here in Canada.

I thought our Prime Minister was a feminist?

Instead of supporting Alberta jobs, approving a pipeline and getting Albertans back to work, Justin Trudeau and the Liberals allow imports from countries that are serious human rights offenders and have even allowed imports to increase significantly.

I suppose that’s what tolerance and inclusion look like in the eyes of a progressive.

Economists at the NEB say that imports should remain steady unless producers in the west start shipping more oil to eastern Canada by rail.

I have a better idea – just fast track the pipeline already.

The only thing the left understands is a hit in the pocket book. They are starting realize these governments policys are similar to Ice is being sold to Eskimo,s. No offence to the Inuit.
Canada can and will be oil/energy self sufficient. Obviously not under the current governments.
I believe more people think this way than all of the special interest groups combined. I also think we are greater not only in numbers but spirit as well.
The soon to be not so silent majority.

This article sums up what is happening right now in the world. The Holy Bible is indeed the book of truth as all these events have been recorded in its pages. It’s uncanny!

Dale Warren commented – “Listened McComb today on NW he was talking about “Private Property” rights in the Canadian Constitution?”

Heh, yeah, Canada the great moral poser , co drafter and first signatory of the UN declaration of human rights – which contains the right to individual property – yet no inclusion of this fundamental “human right” in the PET’s Canadian soviet manifesto.

Many may be too numb to avoid being prey species, but the ones who should know better and buy the toxic liberal moral virtue-posing narrative will die of the toxicity of hypocrisy.

Canadians, as a group, are too stupid to survive . . .
The Lieberal Party, The Media, The Elites and those that believe them are destroying Canada.

Listened McComb today on NW he was talking about “Private Property” rights in the Canadian Constitution? Pierre made sure there was no such thing . . . no hope for these morons !

So, let’s put it into context… Canada, the nation with the second largest land mass in the world, and with oil and natural gas reserves for hundreds of years, that make it the envy of the world, is still importing oil from the Middle East!?!… Obvious insanity… But, are any of the candidates for the leadership of the Conservative Party addressing this mass insanity in a meaningful way??…
commented 2017-02-28 02:06:24 -0500
The pattern is pretty clear. Trudeau is in bed with the middle east.

Ahh good old hypocrisy.

@daryl Herman; The conservative vote split in that riding seems to have opened the gates for that mla. I suppose that was true throughout your province. Not next time I hope.

Maybe we ought to start considering how “turned” off all us normal people are getting?! Turned off of supporting people who don’t want to be here & don’t want to be part of Canadian culture and that are simply afraid of losing the Liberties our soldiers, past & present have died defending. This forum is not for people who have sensibilities to those who wish us harm or change of our culture. Particularly from the PM’s office.

It was only New Albertans who voted Nutley in and a few disturbed Albertans. Very disturbed peoples.

Our globalist PM is just engaging in typical globalist treason – rewarding nonCanadian financiers for their patronage. Selfie and his owners are in bed with the Saudis and Chinese so Canadian industry will be deprioritized for these foreign interests.

Trudeau’s anti-Canaian perfidy goes beyond his Father’s intense hatred of the Canada west of Rosedale, he is actively taking orders and agendas from foreign special interests which are not in Canada’s interests – he is on his way to a one term majority as the economic climate cools along with the false “Trudeaupia 2.0 honeymoon” whipped up by the venal CBC propaganda corp.

Proof positive that Trudeau and his Gang of Liberal misfits, especially the Islamic Members, are Traitors to Canada. I wonder if Trudeau is aware of what Islam dose to Traitors? It is far worse than being thrown of the roof of a tall building and takes some time to die.

Trudeau is in deep waters with the tide running out, just as is his time.
commented 2017-02-27 19:36:32 -0500
Trudeau is a hypocrite and a blatant fraud and huckster. He claims to be all for the middle class but everything he does is against them. No surprise though because he works for Soros and the UN agenda. Too many rich folks who are making money off of ME oil are pulling the strings.

Geez, Trump will be able to buy Canada for a dollar in 2or 3 years.
Keep it up boy blunder, give our sovereignty up to the globalists or have Trump buy us out, either way we won’t be a country much longer.

Daryl ; Yet they voted for Motely and the non democrats. Hopefully they’ve done some reflecting.

Mark , you forgot to mention about the pollution crated by sipping it across the Atlantic and in some cases around the Cape. Daryl, you make great points but the language turns people of and make The Rebel look terrible to anyone just tuning in For the sake of The Rebel TONE IT DOWN!

So let me understand this twisted logic….It’s socially and environmentally unacceptable to develop our own natural resources, but perfectly fine to import it from an oppressive regime?

These high stepping progressives and their insane rationals are unbelievable!

1. So he practically is not against oil. He is against Canadian oil.
2. Therefore his actions are aimed against Canadian interests.
3. He is not only unqualified as Prime Minister, should be arrested for treason.
commented 2017-02-27 18:05:05 -0500
We need a Trump style, “Canada First”, energy policy. Any way you look at it we are going to burn fossil fuels, so we might as well burn Canadian fossil fuels and get our oil workers back on the job. We should also proceed with pipelines that run to the coasts, that will create thousands of skilled jobs and give us the abilty to sell our crude world-wide. Don’t the Irvings want to refine and sell some good ol Canadian Crude?
commented 2017-02-27 17:56:29 -0500
What pipeline.It is not going to happen to the east coast.Middle east oil brings middle east problems.
