Progressive governments push the climate change agenda continuing to insist that we don’t have confidence in pipeline infrastructure or the environmental review process, but Canadians are changing their minds about pipeline projects.
Research shows that the majority of citizens support all three major pipeline projects and public opinion polling over the last few years shows that support is growing.
Most of the opposition toward pipelines comes from British Columbia and Quebec, which is no surprise since the governments of those provinces loudly oppose pipeline infrastructure.
Yet, 60 per cent of Canadians believe that pipelines are the safest method of transport for hydrocarbons.
It’s clear this nation is well informed on pipelines and the importance of the oil and gas industry to Canadian prosperity but progressive NDP and Liberal governments tout the idea that Canadians are uncertain and fear environmental repercussions.
The loud minority steers the conversation taking attention away from the fact that climate change alarmists make things up as they go and have no plan for implementing green technology to replace our reliance on fossil fuels.
The argument is purely political.
There’s simply no solution to replacing the nearly 100 million barrels of oil the world consumes daily. In addition to fuelling cars and heating homes, petroleum products include medicines, medical equipment and synthetics that we rely on for everyday use.
And despite the green rhetoric, Canadians are starting to wise up.
