Trudeau Liberals move to outlaw coal, put “green religion” ahead of jobs

Brian LilleyArchive

Trudeau’s Liberals have just given us another example of how they will be going down the same disastrous route on energy as Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals have in Ontario, and it involves outlawing coal powered plants in this country.

Watch as I share Environment Minister McKenna’s announcement confirming that the Liberals will accelerate the transition from coal power to clean energy by 2030, and explain why it’s the wrong thing to do.

We’ve already seen this move in Ontario from the McGuinty/Wynne playbook and now Butts/Trudeau will repeat this at the federal level, shutting down energy sources that are cheap, reliable and clean in order to spur green spin-offs that are unlikely to materialize.

But that won’t stop Trudeau from putting thousands of Canadians out of work so he can virtue signal to the rest of the world that he’s better than President-elect Trump who chose instead to put coal miners back to work.

Justin shouldn’t be surprised if a few years down the road we have someone promising to do that very thing here in Canada too.

Or maybe the Chinese will or the rich Arab families… One way or another Canada will be up on the chopping block for new masters in 10 or 15 years..
Buy gold buy silver keep your powder dry and learn to preserve food and maybe we can fight for our country back..

Leviticus—I re-checked and the numbers are ok. Just think 2-thirds of a Trillion Dollars debt for Ont. and Que. Add what Trudeau is adding on at the Federal level and watch out. Maybe the Americans will buy us at one dollar an acre like they did Alaska.

Wretched Earth when will Canada get better under Justin? LMAO!

Wretched Earth China will be increasing demand for coal, how ill that make the price lower? Oh yeah , you make things up as you go along Gordo.

Hey Ron… My numbers were 190 billion from Alberta straight to qubeck but however it could be more involving the rest of the western provinces… I hope other people get a chance to read your post because even if 50% of it is truet that is terrifying… Buy gold buy silver,learn to preserve food and keep your powder dry
commented 2016-11-22 23:24:48 -0500
Leviticus 2013—-Your numbers are almost the same as mine; $190 billion in 8 years was given to all the Provinces east of Sask.. Probably BCs and Saskatchewan’s contribution to the east are included.
Leviticus, here are even more important numbers that should concern everyone in the 3 Western Provinces. (maybe 4 someday) Of the 4 Atlantic Provinces , 41% of their revenue comes from transfer payments from other Provinces, and this is supposed to get worse as NL oil runs out.
Ontario owes $320 Billion and economists do not see this going down in the near future. Finally, Quebec debt is 275 Billion ; even with a good Premier they can’t seem to lower it as the Province is used to free stuff from the west, and that is where we started .
To sum it up, with Trudeau running in the red for the foreseeable future, there is no hope and the only option for the West is, and you said it," Separate."

Great post Yevette… I think that little monkey Trudeau has exactly that in mind.. Win by manipulating the demographics, vote cheating if he can and buy all votes
that are left that so he can extend his term well into the bills and laws that he is passing right now.
He is a cheat and a thief a liar and a fraud and possibly a murderer..!!

I sound like John Lennon. My mind is bereft of thought , or logic or intelligence. I am so ashamed.

It really is amazing how Politicians have the ability to keep the ignorant masses at each others throat. Most of us would probably get along, and we could get along rather WELL if you POLITICIANS and the Lobbyists and the Media—— would just be CONTENT———— To let us all live in PEACE.

Why is Trudeau who has 3 more longggggg yrs to go is always trying to pass bills & make laws that will go well beyond his term, is he so arrogant & pompous that the left will keep him in power forever like a dictator. Just like he’s destroyed everything that PM Harper put in place, I believe the next Conservative PM will demolish everything Trudeau tried to do. As for coal, these people are not concerned with people losing their job, they have no clue about the working man’s life & the struggles they go through, because most of these politicians are well to do & they’re all snugly in their cushiony well paid, full of perks job with the silver lined retirement deal at the end of their useless stint as the people’s representatives. For them the important thing is to ram their religious green crap, & to hell with everyone else opposed to it.
Marty, I agree little Sean Penson is now trolling as Wretchd Earth. He was so sure Clinton would win, he doesn’t dare use his former (fake name also, pretty sure) alias.

Ron Joseph… Actually rather than fire Trudeau I would sooner see the west separate and finally get a fair shake… Even before the Trudeau government Alberta paid $190 billion in transfer payments for our colony status membership to “club Canada”. In only eight years..
That money kept upper and lower Canada in champagne and orange juice while the rest of the country worked as hard as they could if they could find a job at all.
We have never gotten anything from eastern Canada other than unfair practices against us and dictatorial government’s stealing ever more money out of our pocket and trying to usurp control of our God-given natural resources so I believe that the paper that binds this country together as long since out lived it’s usefulness.
I think that western tolerance is running out for Eastern dictatorships..!!

Hey rotten earth… Check your grammar and learn to spell..

What do you want to separate?
Heads from bodies, provinces from countries, politicians from office?

commented 2016-11-22 12:42:07 -0500
Is it time to “Separate”, yet?.

A majority government can implement whatever policies it believes are in the best interests of a country, but to build policies on deliberate lies is loathsome and despicable. There is no truth in the Liberal governments justification for a tax on carbon.

That’s how they operate in countries that have illegal lawless governments. Oh wait.
commented 2016-11-22 12:26:03 -0500
Leviticus 2013—-What I said, for the Provinces to keep their Coal-fired electricity plants, we all have to work together and fire the Dictator Trudeau. You Albertans have Double the problem as you have to get rid of the dictator you voted for ,then Trudeau.

Policies knowingly based on bogus science are crimes against humanity.

Environmental policies based on lies regarding carbon dioxide are creating hardships for people.

The lies are: 1. Carbon dioxide is a pollutant. 2. Carbon dioxide is a toxic gas. 3. Carbon dioxide is causing climate change. All these lies have been blatantly stated by the Liberal government in Parliament in Ottawa by its’ ministers and members. These lies have been used to justify polices which cause unnecessary deprivations and hardships for Canadians and others in the world.

The tide is turning. Persons perpetuating these lies will be identified and held to account.

Hey Marty… You have to remember one thing that Canadians in Justin’s mind is that little patch of land from Ottawa to Quebec city about 300 miles long by 150 miles wide… So when he speaking to Canadians that’s who he’s representing the rest of us, we are all just colony status members to club Canada..

I see we have a new troll on here calling himself or herself WRETCHEDEARTH.
However we all know that it is just another name for one of the regular assholes that come on here and spout their BS.
That is also quite a name WRETCHEDEARTH. Shows how much you care and love Earth and makes your BS stink even more.
commented 2016-11-22 11:03:18 -0500
Every time lame brain Trudeau speaks about climate change and eliminating coal and disparaging pipe lines he has to qualify his BS with “Canadians expect this”, “Canadians want this”, “Canadians asked for this”. Where the f*ck does he get off using us as his excuse for being stupid and embracing junk science. What an asshole!
Lord how I hate this Prick.

PM (Flakey) Jayte, you seem to forget about all the Garbage disposal furnaces, around the Country. We are told that these furnaces use scrubbers that completely eliminate Carbon emissions. Did it ever cross your mind, Jayte, that these same Scrubbers can be used on Coal Burning Generators.

America and the UK are re-opening Coal Mines and have re commenced Fracking, but you PM Flakey Jayte would rather make your Saudi friends rich and no doubt you will benefit from this act of of Treason to the Canadian People.

Do Canada a favor PM Flakey Jayte, Resign, now while you are still able.

Obama did the same thing to the south of us. Trashed the value of coal stocks then in swoops George Soros to buy up all those cheap assets!
Politics and politicians are all just one big scam and we’re all the mark!

The Liberals can plan all they want but come 2019 they are going to have to win another election to continue their fairy tale mandate. I personally intend to do everything in my power to ensure the Liberals never win again in Alberta.
