Trump ends “war on natural resources”: How that could spell trouble for Canada

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

President Donald Trump is rolling back Obama's Antiquities Act declarations that made vast tracts of the Utah public lands off limits for development, mining, grazing and hunting.

Obama was using laws designed to protect heritage sites as a means to exert federal control over state lands.

In Canada, we are seeing similar things happen to prevent oil and gas development, with both Trudeau and Rachel Notley strategically turning areas into parks or wildlife preserves to prevent energy infrastructure from getting built.

With Trump's latest actions, the American war on natural resources is over and the economy is the winner.

This could spell trouble for Canada as municipalities, provinces and the federal government make it harder and more expensive to do business here.

My special guest, BC Bureau Chief Christopher Wilson joins me to discuss what having an anti-development NDP government means in British Columbia, and what Donald Trump's embrace of a fossil fuel revival means to Canada.

Interesting to try doing some research on the topic of “renewed ANWAR drilling” via Google.. Which I just tried… Some “supposed” such sites on the subject fail to “open”… Just a lot of “global globe spin” and more spin… And then,even more interesting, just check your “cookie” history after any such research… Whoeee!…

Locking down of Huge Tracts of Land is directly mandated by Y2Y, ‘Wildlands Initiative & the UN’s Agenda 21/30.

Andrew only whiners are upset, Natives in Utah are happy that they can be natives again.

I like THEREBEL networking thing there, national, international. Comparing notes, solidifying understanding, unity across borders in common cause. Great stuff.

If THEREBEL could take a look at all the evidence you’ve compiled in the last couple years, of what appears to be malfeasance and criminality, or just plain stupid…from the perspective of ‘intent to destroy’, on the part of the politicians, bureaucrats and other conspirators; you have – what appears to me to be – documented evidence of an obvious and steady dismantling of Canada in every possible way. The death of a thousand cuts. Lots of little bits here and there add up after a while. Near the end, it doesn’t take much to topple what’s left.
They plan to build their new world order on that rubble…they’re getting away with it so far – in Canada anyway.

Great show SHEILA , I’m thinking that after the destroyers are voted out in Alberta, that industry should make plans to build HUGE supertanker aircraft to transport over enemy territory to sell their products

We find out yesterday that the free market entrepreneurial investment into the oil sands in Alberta will be adversely affected to the tune of 1.4 B representing another NDP government spanking.
But wait, those that buy into the Socialist ideology will get rewarded so long as they invest into what the NDP Socialists believe in. Who of course have never run a multi billion dollar business in their lives. Shannon Phillips says “they listened, they acted.” To who? To people like Barbie? Who can’t think on her own so she takes her consultation from Gerald Butts. Former World Wildlife Fund entrepreneur (joke) who attends symposiums on Scientic Behavioural Change in order to understand business more fully!
Notley is getting her wish. No oil sands. No pipelines. And she has the T shirts to prove it.
Better act quick if you are planning to invest in Alberta. The line up of investors is growing long in excitement and anticipation to Shannon Phillip’s grade four business model.
Who in God’s name would want to invest new money into Alberta? Unless your planning a cute little weed shop on the corner of Ne and Ver. Apparently weed is the next boon says some of the light headed nit wits sitting in the Alta. Leg.
So you are a business that has huge dreams and goals and invests billions upon billions helping the entire Canadian economy flourish for years. Then the Socialists change the rules thinking you have so much at stake you won’t leave. They WILL get to see Modor live and upfront if this keeps up.
At least the oil sands aren’t on a National Park. (Yet).

Bloody tabbed browsing.

I wonder if he’ll do what he did with the coal plants, and find out he needs to offer subsidies since the markets no longer support his stated goals?

People are pretty upset about digging in national parks, such as those in Utah. No company on earth is going to take on a PR nightmare for resources that already have huge gluts due to oversupply and flat demand.

Canada gains nothing by participating in messy territorial disputes on the far side of the planet. That’s why we don’t.

For the folks who don’t know what Agenda 21 or Agenda 2030 are, visit this website:
One goal of either of these UN agendas is to get people off the land and moving to cities and towns.
In Ontario, the Liberal government is ensuring that we march “lock step” with the UN’s goal by raising hydro prices so much that citizens are forced to leave the land thus allowing big farming companies to acquire the land.

The coming year is going to be “interesting” in more ways than one… Not only has Trump nipped the Obama era federal land grab in the butt, but has indicated a “tie” to permitting drilling for oil and natural gas in Alaska’s ANWAR region to the passing of the new tax bill… So, more drilling and less taxes on the horizon for Americans… Meanwhile, “here at home”, we have Victoria Shipyards all bubbly about doing diesel power to LNG conversions for major cruise ships, but NOT one viable LNG terminal in the works in B.C…. Down from 11 such proposals just two years ago… So where are they going to “gas up”???

At least one of our countries has a real leader.

Does the left actually realize that taxes are finite? We cannot pay more than we make. They seem to think there is no limit.
commented 2017-12-07 00:16:20 -0500
Federal government control of the land by making large swaths parkland is just another step in the agenda 21, now 2030. If left uncountered they will use any and many measures to get people off the land and into cities. Turning it into parkland is one of them.

One would hope that the glaring discrepancy between us and Trump’s America will start to wake people up to what Trudeau’s destination is. Total destruction of Canada.
Total dependence on the nanny state.

Municipal governments for the most part are poisonous sewers full of bought and paid for left wing traitors.
Gregor Robertson is at the top of the list.

Great show Sheila

In Kamloops they just keep jacking up taxes. It is an inbred city council, notoriously wasteful. This mine goes through I’ll eat my hat.

It should be becoming increasingly obvious to Canadians – vote Liberal / NDP / Green &/or let foreign funded environmentalists make policy = vote to cut your own throat. US energy production went up under Obama despite his best efforts to prevent it based only what was being developed on private land. What’s going to happen now?
