Quebec’s virtue signalling politicians ignore risks of NOT building pipelines

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

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.

But never mind all of that, virtue signalling over the environment by stalling projects is just far more important to Quebec’s politicians.

If they really meant what they said, wouldn’t they just stop using oil all together?

Quebec is sitting on 16 trillion cubic meters of natural gas, but refuses to drill for it. Why? Then it will have to share its profits with the rest of the country. Oh joy.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Denis Coderre has no problem wasting energy on the public square (some call it a park) opposite city hall by now having the stone walkway, plaza, and fountain heated during the winter. No snow or ice to slip on, unlike the rest of the city because the union controls how and when the snow crews work.

Just another typical Montreal mayor thinking himself king. At least Drapeau made the city great, not a joke.

I wonder what is really behind this sort of thinking.

I like your “Safety and Maintenance Shutdown” idea Ron Joseph… Even Horgan The Organ might have some splainin’ to do under such circumstances… B.C. was obviously asleep at the switch when it came to seriously tackling developing LNG terminals in the last 10 years or so… Now Donald Trump has announced that the US will be selling LNG to India…

Alberta should poach all those Quebec co’s associated with the oil industry!

Holly good recap. Now that BC has a new Government which think the same way as Coderre and Couillard, you could issue the same story regarding BC in a few months.

Why don’t the Alberta suppliers of the Lower Mainland of Vancouver and the Island think ahead and have a 3 month Massive Safety and Maintenance Shutdown of their systems that supply these areas including Vancouver Airport, so the NDP voters cannot escape the carnage.
Gas would go to $3.00 a liter, but some leftest thinking might change.
This plan would likely trigger another election.

Holly, good summary of why Canada is a failed federation.

The canadian citizens, including Quebecers, have nowadays complete opposite views than their gov’ts. And this applies to librano Coderre and librano pm Couillard in Qc.
