He promised not to bring in a National Energy Program like his daddy did, but Justin Trudeau’s arrogant ways when it comes to western Canada are no different.
So after imposing a tanker ban with no study; after saying provinces will bring in a carbon tax; after killing the Northern Gateway Pipeline, now Trudeau’s government is looking at scrapping the Calgary-based National Energy Board and moving it to Ottawa to make it more independent.
This decision is based on feelings, not science.
One thing that Stephen Harper accomplished and that Justin Trudeau is reversing is taking the wind out of the sails of separatist movements in both Quebec and the West.
Now Trudeau is reviving the old regional divides by bringing the same arrogant, "Ottawa knows best" attitude that his father had.
