Trudeau thinks Kinder Morgan's "bluffing" on cancelling Trans Mountain

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On Friday's show, I reported on a story out of CBC about Trudeau's cockamamie idea that another major energy company could be interested in acquiring and developing the Trans Mountain Pipeline.

This comes after Kinder Morgan announced that Trans Mountain may be "untenable" due to the political uncertainty plaguing the project.

But why would any major energy company be interested in investing in Trudeau's Canada?

Enbridge had already spent a billion on the Northern Gateway Pipeline, but Trudeau killed it.

TransCanada applied for the Energy East pipeline worth $15.7B, but Trudeau changed the rules after the project already started so it was killed.

With Kinder Morgan, Enbridge, and TransCanada already burned by the Trudeau government, why would he expect another company to signup for the same treatment?

Trudeau apparently thinks Kinder Morgan's "untenable" statement was a bluff to increase their leverage, but with billions of energy investment already leaving Canada why would he think Kinder Morgan is any different?

Does Kinder-Morgan have to attest that they are pro-abortion to get financial support.

Now that Canada’s best days are behind us . . . way behind us . . . low information voters will continue to vote for dope(s) and free stuff !
As I predicted in 2015 the low-intellect Canooks voted us all Off The Island . . . now the world laughs!
All it took was Two Trudope’s and 30 years to end the Canadian experience.

James MacMaster , Yes I could see Trudeau and Butts trying an end around and aligning with some company to rob the taxpayers blind. Once built , they would sell it off to some Chinese company and say they were paying down the debt.
A large petrochemical operation in Ontario has a complete until ready and waiting for a change of government ,hopefully June. We need to get rid of the Liberal socialists or we need to change the Constitution to make confederation work.

“No sane CEO or Board if Directors of a major oil producer or in this case pipeline company consider risking billions in the current political climate …”

However, MUTA WEEN, there is no shortage of corporate whores who would gladly step in and play the charade for the prospect of taxpayer-funded largesse.

He did this on purpose… This little display of arrogance will guarantee that no pipeline will be built if for no other reason than just general principles..
A multinational corporation will not be talked down too, second guessed or played… They will simply pack up and do business in a friendlier environment.!!
Justin knows this and what he’s doing but I wonder if the people that voted for him know how absolutely stupid Canada looks on the world stage for not only voting this guy into office but after this long of bad and worse and failed policies still beat a drum for him.

Oh Oh Kinder Morgan better watch out , they are dealing with a pretty sharp cookie in Justin LMAO!

Come May 31 we’ll know for sure. If Kinder Morgan pulls the plug, then what.

“Justin Thinks” is an oxymoron. Emphasis on moron.

If the Boy Blunder thinks they’re bluffing how does he explain the 10 LNG terminal proposals of recent years, now cancelled in B.C.?

Lieberals once again demonstrating how out of touch they are with reality. Regretfully, the stupid Lieberal voters and the Lieberal trolls that infest this site cannot, or will not see this truth………..!

Justin Trudeau says it is Andrew Sheer’s smile but Steven Harpers policies, well the shiny ponies words may be his but his regressive policies are those of Pierre Elliott Trudeau’s and we all know what Daddy thought of the West!

No one has ever accused Justin Trudeau of brilliant insight or having an IQ above two digits.

Ezra while at Sun News gave extensive coverage to the railway blockade in Sarnia ,Ontario by members of the local First Nations Reserve.The Sarnia Police Chief Bill Nelson and OPP Commissioner Chris Lewis both refused to enforce an injunction imposed by an Ontario Superior Court Judge to disperse the protesters.
As a result of the protest and the lack of legal protection afforded CNR and local industry, Sarnia was immediately removed from serious consideration for a new World Class Refining project worth billions.
No sane CEO or Board if Directors of a major oil producer or in this case pipeline company consider risking billions in the current political climate created by the lawlessness of not protesters, but the lawlessness of our governments and police services. The very people we elect ,hire or appoint to establish and maintain law and order.
Our only choice is to send these miscreant politicians and their advisors like Trudeau and Butts packing.
A good start would be charging Elizabeth May and Kennedy Stewart with violating a legal injunction.That would send a message to CEOs and company Directors that Canada isn’t a Banana Republic afterall.

Trudeau probably thinks Kinder Morgan is a new kind of hair spray

“Trudeau thinks …”

Since when? He is a front man only, a sock puppet. He has “people” to do his thinking for him, that is very clear when asked a question that was not scripted.

Why, did KM say “Just watch us”?
