Trudeau Liberals give Trump middle finger on Keystone XL

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

A lot of Canadians rejoiced when Donald Trump approved Keystone XL, but that celebration should wait until we actually get the pipeline in place. 

Unfortunately, this project still faces a huge road block from Canada’s federal government.

One reality being glossed over is the fact that Nebraska still has to approve the pipeline route at hearings requested by TransCanada scheduled for August 7th to 11th.

It’s clear to me the Liberal government has absolutely no interest in this project.

Consider what our Minister of Natural Resources, Jim Carr said in a CBC interview recently:

“Canadians aren't going to go down there and tell state legislators what to do. They have their own process. We'll respect that.”

And by “Canadians”, he of course mans the Liberal government.

Carr also said obstacles exist and that although we love Americans, we have to expand our market beyond the US because we export 98% of our product there. With this statement, Carr is banking on the fact that most Canadians don’t know the energy file.

While it’s true Canadian bitumen will be transported to US refineries with much of that product going to fuel American gas tanks, what Carr neglects to mention is the massive opportunity for Canada to enter the Asian market that’s almost certain to come once the pipeline is built.

Meanwhile, the US has increased their production and entered the market filling the space Canada could have taken years ago if only our government wasn’t busy fending off foreign funded professional protestors and progressive governments that are either in it for the money, or being played by governments working hard to make energy independence their reality.

I can’t see the federal government supporting this project - in fact, Carr makes it sound like he wants to fight against it.

Hah! Did I predict this? Feckin’ right I did! Many times on this forum. The LPC (type it into Urban Dictionary) will shut this pipeline DOWN!

Keep spreading the word!
It’s like shovelling shit against the barn door. Some will eventually stick!
Tell your friends about what is happening in Europe and in Canada and not being reported in the MSM?
Talk to your politicians.
Tell your friends about non MSM agencies such as The Rebel.
Some people I know who are well educated and aware of what is happening in the world did not even know about Bill M103, never mind about what is happening in this country.

Dump Justin bin Trudeau

President Trump is more for the Canadian Everyday People of Canada then trudeau could even possibly grasp…Day after day Canadians are circling down the political toilet of shit and piss of trudeau and even the opposition party’s lack of intolerance of trudeau’s crew’s agenda is pathetic and demoralizing…

Louise Leborgne commented 2 hours ago " if we need bread lines and sign of gov’t sanctioned soup kitchens….." Well Louise I saw on the news last Friday a record # of Albertans are on social assistance (WELFARE) because their EI has run out & they have no other options, so Louise , your worst fears are coming true in Alberta! Well done PM .

Keystone XL will get done when western canadians separate from the laurentian elite in the east.

So many smart comments here. If we need bread lines and sign of gov’t sanctioned soup kitchens, we’ll be under the lib thumb forever. I despise what he has systematically done to our once great country. Well done PM and useless party.

I have been asking what planet I live on since Canadians elected Peter Pan. I’m so sick and tired of him and his liberals spreading their pixie dust to turn Canada into their version of never never land. Complaining here and now is ok, but we have to make sure to get rid of them next election. Talk to your family, to your friends, your neighbours, hell anyone. Most of all, to your kids, a vast amount of the young girls last election voted for him cause " he’s a beau ", give me a break. A lot of young men voted for him because they thought it’s " funny ". This is what happens on line with our kids, they are mostly sheeples and follow their pears. Most of all Canadians need to get off their butts and vote. There are a lot of important changes going on in this world and we need a government that live in the real world.

I agree that Jim Car should not “tell” Trump what to do, but he should definately be lobbying the Trump administration on KXL,which I don’t believe he is doing. The Trudeau gov’t does not want KXL and will sit quietly on the sidelines most likely hoping it does not get approved. This Liberal gov’t is such a disappointment for the West, Notley is an even bigger disappointment. We really need to vote in a gov’t that will put pipelines in our own country, ie: Energy East. We cannot have a gov’t that will let Denis Codere & Quebec hold us hostage over the pipeline all the while accepting our most generous equalization payments.

The liberal politicians and politicians in general care not for the health and welfare of this country or its inhabitants.
They care solely for their paycheques and their legacies.
After all, they supply their foreign friends with limitless amounts of cash gleaned from the Canadian taxpayers while ensuring that the same taxpayers continue to face job security uncertainty, have only menial employment opportunities (let’s keep all the citizens on welfare, that way they can’t revolt since we’ll cancel their welfare payments), send our poorly paid soldiers off to fight other nations’ battles using obsolete equipment.
I could go on and on but any level headed person will readily see this without my pointing it out to them while those who don’t see this situation refuse to even consider this possibility exists.
Soon we will be like the Saudis.
Extremely rich princes and leaders and extremely poor peons slaving away at 2 and 3 jobs just to make ends meet.

Dump Justin bin Trudeau

Trudeau is too busy trying on mini-skirts and feminine hygiene products with his feminists girl friends to care about Canada’s economics.

The best modern day example of “national insanity” at work is before our eyes, and at work right now… Canada, the second largest national land mass in the world, with hundreds of years of national resources beneath our feet, and a dozen foreign nations begging to buy those resources, choosing to tap-dance on using those resources… And most insanely – rather buys oil from nations THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY to feed the energy demands of Atlantic Canada !?!?,,, It’s still the hawks circling above the blown bridge in the final scene of the movie The Bride On The River Kwai, and the voice-over intoning:- “Madness… Madness…”

Have you ever seen a liberal wanting to make the canadian prosper? They are sold to the 1% and their own pockets. Why do you think Trudope is so interested in China and the arabs. Because there is always a commission for him and his cronies. Unfortunately not with Trump.

Well said Keith Barnes.

@Peter Netterville….The modern day moderate and extremist liberals should be all thrown onto the carpet with extreme prejudice..they are racist..As any Government that holds power and turns a blind eye and ear on it’s own people’s well being should be held accountable.

Do not forget the media in Canada (c.b.c. c.t.v. global )all love J.T from Que. Winney in Ont Nothead in Alberta.so the tax payers do not count.

Our great Mis(s) Leader Justeen Trudough, will do anything he can to ruin this once, great Country and make it’s inhabitants poorer. All he dreams about is the influx of his undesirable friends, the Muslim Jihdi, whom he worships, or at least he worships the money in his Saudi Bank Account.

Rot in Hell Trudeau.

Holly asks, “What planet are we on when our own government doesn’t support projects for the benefit and economic prosperity of their own country?”

Libranoland, where opposing economic prosperity lines the pockets of that governments’ ruling political party … and that of their friends too, of course.

The Liberals and actually all left wing governments are only in power to milk the tax payer for their own benefit. We have had decades of hard evidence to prove that beyond any shadow of a doubt.
