Quebec politicians at all levels, like to virtue signal over the environment when blocking pipelines and refusing to support Canada’s oil and gas industry. However, that won’t stop them from taking the revenues resulting from the oil and gas industry.
Watch as I show you the numbers from studies that show how much Quebec’s economy benefits from Alberta’s oil sands.
Montreal’s “sewage Mayor” Denis Coderre, says building pipelines is too risky because it might damage the environment, but what’s really risky is shipping more oil by rail which is going to happen if we don’t get shovels in the ground.
Because studies also confirm that demand will rise, yet we don’t have any new pipelines completed to meet that capacity, so that means more shipments by rail.
You would think the Mayor of Montreal and the members of the provincial government would be the first to sign on to get these projects built considering the Lac Megantic rail disaster that took the lives of 47 people after a train carrying Bakken crude derailed and exploded.
If they really meant what they said, wouldn’t they just stop using oil all together?
