Watch Quebec Conservative MP defend pipelines and Canadian oil

Brian LilleyArchive

Conservative MP Gérard Deltell emerged from Wednesday's Conservative caucus meeting in Ottawa to give an impassioned defence of pipelines bringing Canadian oil from Western Canada to Quebec and beyond.

"This is good for the economy, this is good for Canada and it is good for Quebec," Deltell said.

A group of Montreal area mayors came out against Energy East last week sparking outrage and calls for Western funded equalization payments to be cut off from Quebec. But Deltell says there are many in the province that support the project, he pointed to refineries in the province that have been bringing in foreign oil instead of Canadian oil for years now.

"Do you want to spend Canadian money going offshore instead of buying Canadian petroleum?”, Deltell asked.

Deltell represents a riding in the Quebec City area. Just across the St. Lawrence River from his district is the Levi, Quebec refinery, one of two operating refineries in the province.

Any government in Canada that opposes pipelines
should lose its share of oil & gas equalization payments.

The Liberal’s new process for evaluating pipeline projects is circuitous. In three years time we will be exactly where we are today with many indigenous and environmental groups opposing the pipelines and the decision left up to a government which, without saying as much, wants oil sands development stopped. However the new process is a big improvement for the Liberals in that by expanding the process many more of their supporters and donors can obtain funding as interveners and profit for their support of the party. The losers of the new process are the pipeline companies who will finance this perpetual charade.

As a share holder in two pipeline companies I suggest they just request a license for a project and wait for the government to provide one, and not participate further or fund this fruitless process. I prefer my money be employed in jurisdictions like the USA where the states are eager for investment.

The environmental beliefs of the Liberal Party effectively close Canada for pipeline development. Pipeline companies should deploy their capital, their expertise and efforts elsewhere. Nothing will change in Canada until the Trudeau Liberals are removed from office. Too bad for Canada.

Justin’s Diary’s comment in Ezra’s show tonite,( 1/27/16) says it all. Justin says what he needs to, not what he believes, and he’s making Coderre tow the line. They will never approve that pipeline. Notely as well, she knows its safe to say she wants it. It will never happen. All liars.

Liza Rosie; Re “Justin talks out both sides of his mouth”
Is that his mouth, from the stuff that comes out of it I thought it was an alternative orifice.

I guess Justin told Mr. Coderre to tone done the rhetoric, but the proof is in the pudding. Sounds good, I’ll believe it when I see it. Justin talks out both sides of his mouth. He and now Coderre has realized that they have to temper their their true feelings. I suppose it is occurring to Coderre the refinery idea will be a printing press for Quebec, he’s an idiot if he doesn’t.

Sounds like someone straightened out Mr. Coderre.

I like this guy. Conservative MP Gérard Deltell is talking sense. I am sure many Quebeckers agree with him. The question is, will it make a difference to Trudeau and the ‘mob’, probably not. I don’t know about the cost to build, but once in this pipeline will make fast cheap work of getting it to tide water. That’s the real problem, foreign influence who are clearly padding some pockets and/or strong arming our liberal politicians, will do everything to stop our ability to export. It interferes with their market share. All this environmental stuff is just subterfuge.

I’m against this pipeline . It’s a return to the days when Alberta had to give it’s oil to the east for next to nothing. Trans Canada has promised Ont. and Quebec the world from what I’ve been reading on their site, the cost of this pipeline is ridiculous compared to any others and more than double from what it was originally going to cost. I don’t see these oil companies willing to pay the shipping costs to pay for all the free stuff that the thieves are lining up for.

Atta boy Gèrard !
Way to show everyone that Montreal and all its Anglo-phonies don’t speak for the whole of Quebec!

This is a problem manufactured in Montrel by the liberals there, nothing else.

Unfortunately, all the Liberals throughout Eastern Canada and the Maritimes do NOT have their heads screwed on straight and they and all the eNGO weasels will continue to fight the Energy East pipeline until they self-implode.

Of course a Conservative would support the Energy East pipeline. Conservatives generally have their heads screwed on right.
