Watch Trudeau Reject Pipelines AGAIN!

Brian LilleyArchive

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau moved quickly to quash speculation that he may be softening on pipelines and readying to approve the Norther Gateway project as a way to boost Canada's slumping economy.

With a court mandated deadline of Thursday for the federal government to begin new talks with first nations affected by the pipeline or appeal the ruling, there has been some speculation that the Trudeau Liberals may alter their firm opposition to the project, something Trudeau denied during a news conference in Ottawa on Wednesday.

"As I've said many times The Great Bear Rainforest is no place for a crude oil pipeline," Trudeau said.

He said that the Harper government had been too much of a cheerleader for the oil industry and pipelines and said the Liberals will be a referee seeking to balance the economy and the environment.

Despite that claim, the Liberals have yet to approve any pipelines including those approved by the National Energy Board such as the Trans Mountain expansion. Instead the Liberals have added to the process with further reviews and more onerous requirements.

Another direct attack against the west in general and Alberta in particular. Independence is the only way. Forget Jason Kenny and the PC’s, and forget the WR. They would just continue on being our jailers for Ottawa. Vote independence.

At what point do Canadians realize that all carbon based resources will be locked in the ground for eternity? It is the policy of the government and the belief of most that CO2 is a pollutant which cause clime change. Facts be damned!

Soros and his minions have but one plan and that is a global economy. The process is to destabilize western nations by destroying their economy and social structure thus letting in the people who will save us with a global government.

The arrogant and isolated Liberals are shutting down our resorse economy with nothing to replace the wealth this industry created. Hard times are in store for working class Canadians because “economic diversity” is a vapid concept with no real world economic realities to validate it.

People who speak of “economic diversity” do nor work for a living

Congradulations Assmunch Jr., Butts, the Bitch Notley, and the rest of your childish ilk. This stopped being about low oil long ago and the phoney climate is Bullshit. It’s all about your power and ego. Your legacy will be that of a divided seperated, and broken Canada. Fuck I hope there’s something remaining to rebuild after 2019. I’m not optimistic about it but still hope.

Jill and John ward… To do that we must separate into a Western alliance.
Personally I don’t see a problem with it but it seems like the majority of Canadians are terrified to live without Ontario and quebec.

" As I’ve said many times The Great Bear Rainforest is no place for a crude oil pipeline,"
What an idiot . There is no such thing as the Great Bear Forest . It was a name dreamed up by Greenpeace when they were paid to attack Canadian forest interests. They also came up with the stupid moniker for the white lermode bear – ’ The Spirit Bear’ which is just a black bear with a recessive gene. Two white kermodes will not have white cubs.
Trudeau’s BFF is Gerald Butts , his old college roommate and former head of World Wildlife Canada . Butts is an ardent anti-Oilsands and anti-pipeline proponent. As long as he is Trudeau’s Principal Advisor, Prime Minister Doofie will never support a pipeline.

This is fantastic news! Canada, especially Alberta, must diversify its economy and not rely on the deadly petrochemical industry. We need to become more green and change.

Liberals and Greens are very happy today 🇨🇦

Look at that smug petulant look on the narcissists face. He hates Canadians, but he uses our assets like he owns them. Like all traitors, I know he’ll get his in the end.

What is true is that he intentionally wanted to dress up in a suit by wearing a costume in essence.

This proves it was all just a stunt to prove a point. I also wonder whether this person named Bernard put fake makeup on to give the impression that he just got off the oil field or oil rig and just went to Ottawa.

That most likely did not occur and this was used just for presentation to drive home his message when that shows how phony the Conservative party truly is.

They do not care about any other industry in Canada other than oil development.

The fact is oil jobs are important to a segment of two provinces basically of the country, where the oil boom is over.

This is just like Joe the Plumber but more corny.

People have to realize that if the Conservative party and Rebel are going to these levels then there is massive coordination and Rebel is just a propaganda arm of the Conservative party with no form of independence whatsoever.

It is just theatrics and playing with people’s emotions when to build an economy it has to be fully diversified and oil is just a tiny part of that because even with all the development and pipelines that would do nothing to fix oil pricing internationally. In fact, it would stay the same.

This whole notion of ethical oil is just another gimmick as well because it suggests that corporations that do this care from the bottom of their heart when they do not even care if thousands lose their jobs. If people in Western Canada truly wanted a strong oil company they should have demanded that Petro Canada stayed as an oil company that was nationalized.

The fact is corporations do only care about profits and CAPP was fully backing Sun News Network and it is not clear how deep with Rebel CAPP truly is.

Where are the facts based on this, and did Rebel provide through donations his plane ride? People have a right to know in Canada!!

What is 100% clear is that adding more pipelines would do nothing for oil prices across the world.

Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and OPEC countries have flooded the market with cheap oil and even the PCs could not do anything to help Alberta, and right now the oil market is hurting not because of Trudeau who just got in one year ago but our GDP has fallen and so has the amount of oil jobs. This even took place under the Harper regime, which Sun News/Rebel won’t ever admit.

The fact is this person Bernard is just a prop for the Conservative party who is working alongside the Rebel to bring up this stuff when Alberta does need diversification into other markets, as the oil boom in Western Canada is over.

Remember that Harper focused too much energy on one industry. That said, Alberta even with 40 years of PC government still did not get it done. I doubt Wildrose would do much to help as they only propose more autonomy from the rest of Canada and not much change from the way that the PCs governed on oil exploration, oil development, trying to get the pipelines to market and even small business growth.

People seem to forget that when Canada had more manufacturing back around the 1970’s Alberta did much better because there was more chance of full employment. Nowadays, with less manufacturing and more corporatization, it seems that Alberta has not much choice other than to diversify and have more infrastructure spending. This seems like the best way forward because the oil boom is over.

All the petitions and Rebel plane rides to Ottawa will not fix anything because the Saudis did flood the market to hurt the Iranians and the Russians.

It is a shame that Rebel supporters fail to think this far ahead.

They are completely not looking at the other side because it was the Harper regime that started this pro-oil and oil only agenda for the West which drove up the dollar and was a temporary boom, by the way it looks!

Yeah…we will soon be refugees Justin…what a Freudian slip…so you are doing the hard work of driving business out of Canada and limiting all production to the desires of a few Peta fanatics and tree huggers while the people line up for welfare.

Bill.. No that is not so..
When he was referring to “Canada is back” he’s talking about that narrow strip of land from Ottawa through the laurentian’s and the elite’s that it represents… Everything else is a colony and will be addressed as so.

Boy Blunder has been bought and paid for. He is to destroy Canada for his UN masters for their globalist agenda. He is a traitor to Canada, and he should be shot or hung for it. Hanging would be better, since the liberals are so afraid of guns.

Andy – you enunciate why this low information PM gets away with howling gaffes and overal blankness on the issues – because his constituency believe everything that comes out of CBC or out of their iPhone from their selfie hashtag group – you know them better as “zombies” – Trudeau calls them “Canada is back”
commented 2016-09-22 02:05:28 -0400
You’re on the money again Bill Elder… What the Boy Blunder obviously doesn’t know – or doesn’t want to hear – is that the Great Bear Rainforest is well south of Kitimat; the 65,000 sq. kms. being east of Queen Charlotte Sound… And ironically, there are now indications that the so-called “Spirit Bears” are being threatened by grizzly bears expanding their territory, not man… But why let the “facts” get in the way of what Gerald Butts has told you to say?…

Those of you not willing to separate or talk of separation will be the cause of the rest of us along with our future generations living under communist rule and blended races.. You are exactly what George Soros requires.
All talk no action..!

Finally once again talk of Western separation…
Separation should be on everybody’s minds. There could be the North Western alliance including Manitoba Saskatchewan, Alberta, the Northwest Territories and the Yukon and possibly including BC if they wish to join..
Access to ports would be no problem from our northern boundaries to our neighbors to the south and the rest can be done by truck or rail.
The northeastern alliance is everything from New Brunswick east to Newfoundland effectively and surgically removing Ontario and Quebec like cancerous tissue..
Desperate times require desperate measures.

AND – the economy is going to be grown from the “heart”??? What a lunatic POS tiny spud is proving to be. I suppose his plans for diversity by bringing in 1000s more rapefugees are going to be enormously profitable?! Someone – please give that POS PM a crash course in economic realities! He very obviously has no clue as to exactly where “taxes” come from or generated.Our police & social budgets are being overtaxed (as in Eurabia) because of TruDopes utopian fantasies of redistributing the earth’s population of barbaric lunatics to the countries filled with all us infidels in the fraudulent lie of diversity!

Trudeau wants to balance the economy and the environment. What are you going to do, when it comes time to balance the books Mr Trudeau?

Any radical politician can easily scare away investment, and Trudeau/Butts tag team are proving how easy that is! And who cares about the money and employment lost – just keep feeding at the deficit trough to the tune of a few more dozen billions, spout a few platitudes and you’re set for life!
