Trudeau's tanker ban “inappropriate” say First Nations chiefs

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Justin Trudeau’s federal government introduced a bill in the House of Commons last week to officially enact a moratorium on crude oil tankers on British Columbia’s North coast. 

This is nothing but virtue signalling because if there truly was an economic or environmental case to be made for this ban, Trudeau and his government just aren’t making it. 

If anything, this ban will have tremendous negative economic effects, including for First Nations communities who stood to benefit the most from economic development and a pipeline to our northern port.

Watch as I show you what one First Nations group that backs the pipeline had to say about Trudeau's tanker ban and the reaction from the BC Chamber of Shipping.

This action will do nothing to stop the hundreds of tankers sailing from Alaska down the BC coast to ports in Washington and California, many of them sailing close to Vancouver Island, home of many environmentalists.

This ban is bad for business, bad for First Nations and bad for BC.

Well, duh, like yeah Justin… Can you explain please, while it’s somehow valid to ban tanker traffic on the West Coast, even though hundreds of American tankers ply those waters, but Irving Oil refinery’s Canaport docks in St. John sees Saudi tankers ply the waters of the Bay of Fundy “tidal bottleneck” every day?… If there is a “logic” to that then it sure as hell escapes me… Justin?…. Justin?…

Saudi oil coming in on tankers on east coast, good. Exporting on the west coast, bad. As Bill Elder said, how obvious can Justin be.
Justin has no love for Canada or its people.
Bill Smith excellent post. It is time the champagne socialists realize that they are doing the FN no favours. The liberals don’t want FN’s to be able to take care of themselves. It would jeopardize them being used as political patsies when needed by our gov. and foreign governments alike.

Excellent report Christopher Wilson.
Bill Elder, you raise a very good point about east coast tanker traffic, and the reason Trudeau isn’t concerned. Saudi Arabia issues orders, Trudeau carries them out – he is a traitor and among the most foul human beings.

Some people learn fast… Some people are slow… Some people never learn…!!
Trudo’s government will be working hand-in-hand with BC’s greens and NDP to make sure they never learn.. Theyl outnumber the duly elected party that is supposed to be leading the province.!
First Alberta then BC, Manitoba was already baked in the cake and the last province standing will be Saskatchewan.!

Why is Trudeau only concerned with west coast tanker traffic? Why is east coast tanker traffic not being studied/banned? Is it because east coast tanker traffic comes from Justin’s bosses in the Saudi oil cartel? Is it because west coast tankers carry Canadian oil to market?

How Fxxking obvious can this Saudi oil puppet be?

The reason for the ban is simply to punish the prairies and the BC interior for not voting LPC. Nothing to do with the environment.

It was McKenzie King who once said that if a region wanted consideration from the federal government, then they needed to vote LPC. The Lying Party of Corruption has not changed.

Excellent report… I believe that CHRISTOPHER WILSON is perhaps the only reporter in Canada to not pigeon-hole us (FN), into some mythical entity of the left that posses superpowers which can stop development. Sorry to rain on the narrative of the left, but we are not afraid of work and take a lot of pleasure in providing for our families.
