#UnitedWeRoll pro-pipeline convoy welcomed in Terrace Bay, Ontario

Keean BexteRebel Contributor

A massive caravan of heavy duty trucks have been making its way across Canada. Since Wednesday the convoy has covered over 2,500 kilometers. 

Its message? Western Canada is fed up with Justin Trudeau and Gerald Butts' anti-Alberta action.

After stopping in dozens of small towns and big cities along the Trans Canada highway, it turns out — it's not just Western Canadians who are fed up.

Ontarians from Terrace Bay told me what they think of the convoy, and of Justin Trudeau.

Thanks for that list and it supports what I’m saying how we need refineries… Almost all of those refineries are beyond their life expectancy and we desperately need new sources of gas oil and diesel for domestic use so we are not beholding to anyone especially as some people suggest another country like buying finished fuels from the USA… I thought we were trying to get away from that kind of thing and be more energy independent. Thanks for that bit of research . .

Al.. I believe it was closed in the 40s or perhaps a little earlier.

Here is a list of refineries currently in Canada:

I was referring to refineries in the past.

B/A had a refinery in Calgary not sure when it closed.

Imperial had a refinery in Calgary not sure why it closed.

Hub oil had refinery in Calgary that ended with an explosion and fire in August 1999

Even Moose Jaw had a refinery at one time.

Liza.. The only refineries I’m aware of in Ontario is the regular group of players at Sarnia.

After reviewing the information on refineries in Calgary I have come to the conclusion that is the head office for operations everywhere for the different energy companies but I don’t see an active refinery as of right now.. but I would welcome input from other viewers.

I know Sherwood park has “refinery row” where the majority of the “established players” are (And the refineries are old) , and a couple of them in Fort Saskatchewan… Saskatchewan has a few including the upgrader in Regina and Lloydminster on the Saskatchewan side as well I am not sure about Manitoba and I believe BC has one down by the lower mainland but that’s no where’s near enough.. When we hear that our price of diesel or gas is going up because a refinery is shut down in Louisiana affecting world output is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard for gouging the profit margin. Does anyone know how many refineries are in the Gulf of Mexico on that eastern seaboard or just in Louisiana alone?? What they are doing there eclipses and dwarfs anything that we have and they are more than covered for any product losses from outage to startup. We let government and big oil run roughshod over us for far too long and it’s time to take the hammer back. Yes we need pipelines now.. right now..!!! but we need energy self- sufficiency even more.. it is in our own best interest to upgrade our product before we push it down our newly built pipelines..

Gerald Butts quits as Trudy’s adviser yeehaw!!! Liberals are imploding!!!

When I was a kid the refineries in Oakville Ontario were a thing. They were closed in 2005.
commented 2019-02-18 13:47:23 -0500
Charred, I know there is nothing there now but I’m saying there used to be several.
commented 2019-02-18 13:42:35 -0500
I don’t think there’s anything right in Calgary but they do have some power plants in the area.. I will research it and get back to you .
commented 2019-02-18 13:35:14 -0500
I remember – possibly unclearly- that as a kid going up in Calgary there were two or three refineries there. Do I remember correctly?
commented 2019-02-18 13:21:57 -0500
Yep. Our domestic market would be the greatest market for the refined products and the upgraded product can go straight down the pipe and out to the world.!!
commented 2019-02-18 11:22:51 -0500
We have been so badly maimed by politicians whose agenda had nothing to do with a prosperous Canada and everything to do with staying in power and controlling the people. We’re being beaten down, and ripped apart. We have to stop allowing devious politicians to have their way with this country, as the Trudeau’ s did and yes even Harper had an agenda, he mostly kept from us.

We’ve been told that we have no right to protect what we have. We are told we have no right to get our resources to market, no right to know who comes into our country and we have been demoralized.

I know so many people, some related to the patch in some way and others just fed up Canadians who are feeling so proud and grateful that this convoy is delivering the message for all of us. We demand that the government take their foot off our necks and get those pipelines built. Good people right across this nation are standing up for our resource sector. Alberta is not alone. The brainwashed are the minority, they fell for lies. They don’t represent most Canadians, they just think they do.

Good points Charred Remains. We should reconsider what we have been told to believe about how we can and can’t market our own product.

Good morning Keean.. once again I am looking forward to your updates of this political caravan taking our message to Ottawa at a time when the liberals are being hammered from all sides from the scandals of their own creation. If there is another bus journey in your future to protest something political please offer up the empty seats to your viewership to assist you and your cause with some financial relief.!
commented 2019-02-18 09:53:57 -0500
That is absolutely true Tim… You never see countries of colour pounding the drum for white diversity in their countries.!! South Africa being a good example of where the whites are persecuted,murdered and run off their land in a country that not too many years ago performed the very first heart transplant.. what medical breakthroughs would be happening in South Africa right now if the blacks didn’t suddenly think that they could run the country better as un-organized tribes. I would like the readership to offer me up a country run by coloured people that isn’t a Third World despotic shit hole or regressing into one after taking over from white people.
commented 2019-02-18 09:42:02 -0500
Political correctness’ is just geno cidal Anti White hatred
Mass immigration, open borders, are ‘Privileges’ for whites ONLY!
When does “diversity” meant anything but LESS White People?
Its Anti White

Paul Martin.. what a national joke and an embarrassment who has corrupted ties with a liberal party… I’m hoping all them sons of bitches are shitting their pants right now over JWR and her intolerance to illegal activities at the highest levels of government.. maybe Jody will now understand what the liberal governments values are and change sides because “ An honest but mistaken person once shown the truth, that person ceases to be honest or ceases to be mistaken”..

Sorry about the typo… that was supposed to read, “instead of showing the world they are educated beyond their intelligence.”….. not “her intelligence“.!! No offence to the ladies it was a typo

Harley.. we haven’t had leadership in this country that hasn’t tried to play this country both ends against the middle for personal gain and I’m just sick of it .!!
Let’s see what happens after the next federal election and see if we can get the brighter minds to do the right thing and the lesser minds to understand what they’re doing and support them instead of showing the world they are educated beyond her intelligence.. especially where economics and business is concerned.!! Good Lord… Learning is hard but teaching is way harder especially when the skull is thick and the tongue is opinionated.!!

Chard remains
Well said the liebral elites have been ripping the east off long enough. With tankers flagged in other countries, pay no Canadian taxes carbon or otherwise.
They are working against Canada (no ban for uncle Pauls tankers) only Canadian oil tankers. Billions in dollars and jobs leaving our country for years and years.
Build a refinery in every province and put the pipe line along the trans Canada.
Trudeau has to go.

Andy.. I know what you’re talking about… I’ve seen them out by Lamont and Chipman hunting out there… I’ve seen capped wells up by Grand Prairie when I worked for Halliburton in the eighties. I know there is so much for oil based resources in this province alone that since the discovery of Leduc -#1 this country and province has enjoyed the benefits of the massive revenue that was generated from these oil field discoveries. Alberta from that time has lead the way in oil field technology development and heavy oil recovery in the world to become the leading experts and consultants for difficult wells and extraction.. our engineers also developed procedures necessary to extract energy from hydrocarbon in the sand at fort McMurray known as the oil sands. That economic powerhouse has survived many poor and corrupt governments as well as economic downturn‘s including a national oil crisis in the 80s when oil fell to under 12 a barrel when opec decided to fuck with the price of oil over a pissing match with non-OPEC producers.. Suncor, Syncrude, and CNRL are the 3 upgrader’s ( that I am aware of ) producing upgraded product for market and domestic use as well as in-house use for their own diesel burning equipment in the mine, the rest are extraction plants that mixes raw bitumen with diluent so the product can be pumped and the diluent returned to the extraction plant via pipelines.!! The economic ramifications of being energy independent (The same thing as Trump wants for his country) are so far reaching in a positive capacity that there is no explaining it to anybody who wants to leave the resource in the ground or simply pump valueless raw bitumen or doesn’t understand the versatility or the international value of our biggest export and why we do not need or want to buy back our own product that’s now refined at a huge financial loss… When oil is only a few dollars a barrel once refined provides a huge huge profit margin in comparison to the investment, and when oil was $120 a barrel as it was only a few years ago we were paying $1.37-142 a litre in Fort Mac and a few pennies less down south. At $80 a barrel we were paying around $.90 a litre domestic oil is so ridiculously cheap right now ($20 ish ) that gas at the pump including taxes should be between 15 and $.25 a litre but it’s not because of the profit margin built into it.!! There is so much profit in the refined ends of fuel for those selling gas
and diesel but not for raw bitumen or crude oil. There is no money in raw bitumen or crude so let’s not put the economic carriage before the horse. Pundits political or uninformed, do not understand how the free-market works and will always create excuses or myths to not build at home or to leave our product in the ground to the direct benefit of somebody else.. When Trudeau passed legislation to keep tanker traffic from moving Alberta’s oil off Canada’s West Coast and land lock while allowing tanker traffic in the gulf of St. Lawrence to flow freely was not an accident because every drop of our oil that Justin keeps out of the market he receives a kickback from his Saudi purchases. Alberta loses $25 billion a year every year to equalization payments ( fancy word for extortion ) then to add insult to injury eastern Canada imports roughly $30 billion a year worth of Saudi oil.. and that is money that will never return to Canada, benefit Canadians or circulate freely through our financial system.!! When will people ever learn…
Go Max in the 2019 save Canada tour.!!!

That’s the absolute “insanity” of it all… And I do mean INSANITY!… In the Peace River Country around Ft. St. John, B.C., and extending across the border into Alberta, we have hundreds of capped gas wells, stretching to the far horizon – I’ve seen them! – that have enough energy in them to keep ALL of Canada going for the next 400 years!! INSANITY! And anybody disputing that fact is obviously intent on destroying Canada’s “God given” gift from the times when the dinosaurs first farted….

Please don’t pretend that you know very much about refineries and shelflife’s because I know it’s not your strength and beyond the conversations you have had with people more educated than yourself. All your knowledge comes from peoples opinions that you respect but But it’s obvious that they don’t know that much either.
commented 2019-02-18 02:32:33 -0500
Drew.. without spending a lot of energy going into this explaining in detail point by point how wrong you are on all counts. your statement below absolutely confirms your complete ignorance in the energy sector beyond that of a welder‘s helper.. Paying somebody to buy our finished product back explains the retard gene that a lot of people have an cary and unfortunately pass on to unfortunate victims. Refineries can be built to produce as much or as little as you want for a daily ( so don’t worry about your shelflife) output and the maintenance is our jobs at home. We ship upgraded product to everywhere else in the world that wants it… Only smart people and smart nations upgrade their natural resources before allowing everybody else downstream of that to enjoy the profit margin’s from even moderate upgrades . Refineries in every province to satisfy the energy needs of that province Will ensure energy independence into the future and no shortcomings of our suppliers unable to deliver for one reason or another leaving us in a bind.. or unreasonable spikes in price from the downstream developers.!! but that’s farsightedness along an understanding of energy economics from a boardroom point of view. Let the businessman worry about what they can build and make a profit on and maintain and people like us should just ensure that the government stays the hell out of the way of business because we all know what happens when that happens. Commonsense leads to independence both financially along with oil coal and other energy independence… we have natural gas in abundance to the point to you can’t explain to the average person and expect them to wrap their head around it.
commented 2019-02-18 02:08:42 -0500
Charred Remains only to an extent. Refineries are break even enterprises that cost billions to build and refined product has a shelf life.
commented 2019-02-17 23:51:56 -0500
It’s not only pipelines we need… We need refineries as well to become energy independent because it doesn’t make any sense to export all of our bitch man and then buy it back is finished product… It makes more sense to run upgraded oil down the pipeline.. The upgraders provide the lion share of full-time employment as well as seasonal work for the shutdowns and upgrades and debottlenecking. All the provinces could benefit from this but it’s not part of the effort for centralized power. Upgraders in each province is the key to energy independence and sell on the open market the rest that we don’t need.!! Yes we need pipelines but we shouldn’t be giving away our natural resources either… The world is just as hungry for upgraded oil as it is for bitumin..

i would prefer Canada Usa Oil over saudi arabia my self I want all our pipe lines going

Call me crazy but I would prefer Canadian oil rather then Saudi oil to fuel my car and work truck.
