What Alberta NDP really think about Keystone XL — in their own words

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


The Keystone XL pipeline passed a major (and maybe its last) real regulatory hurdle earlier this week as Nebraska regulators approved an alternative route through the state.

The $10 billion pipeline project will bring oil from a tank farm in Hardisty, Alberta to Steel City, Nebraska and then on to refineries in the gulf of Mexico.

And over in the sycophantic the mainstream media, Premier Notley is "pleased," calling the decision of Nebraska regulators "good news" and something that she "applauds."

But is that true? Watch my video to see what the NDP really think of Keystone XL in their own words.

It's something you won't see anywhere else.

Alberta does have a new diesel refinery coming on line in 2018, this plant just outside Ft. Saskatchewan is a private investment that has taken 10 years to complete. The Tories okay this plant but invested very little, as it should be. Building refineries needs to make sense market wise and keep government hands out of it. If the US wanted refined fuel they would ask for it, they want the bitumen, it’s a better material for plastics, roofing shingles, road asphalt, kerosene (main ingredient in jet fuel), not all oil is refined for autos.
Alberta needs to be free of the shackles of Ottawa sucking sound that is dragging this province and others down the pipeline of despair. Freedom is the only answer

The giant sucking sound you hear is our natural resources being drained from the country and sold back to us is finished product…

Ron said…“Glen, the part of my post regarding MGTOW was meant to ask you a question that I Don’t have an answer for. If men avoid marriage like the Italians did in the 80’s, they “still” don’t get to keep more of their money, as the Gov’t just taxes them more to pay for women that choose to be single mothers and live in someones basement with their kid. Am I missing something?”

No Ron you are not missing anything in regards to that point…which is a sad thing for all concerned.

Just as hyenas and other predators conserve energy by hanging around the watering hole…the feminazis hang around and chaparone sex….the prey have to learn to be more wary….this is a sad thing for all concerned.

It takes all of the restraint I can muster to refrain from saying what I would suggest as a remedy…but until the prey get as fed up as me …there is no point in even suggesting it.

When they finally get as fed up as me….nothing more will need to be said.

Glen Craig—I wasn’t discussing if it was cheaper to send finished bitchumen or finished product in a pipeline. I don’t know. I was saying that a good sized refinery can keep Canadian people employed ( Lethbridge Alberta would be a good example to get a refinery) and support cities and towns for 50-100 years.
I know more about forestry and when we send raw logs to the US or Asia, 95% of the time they make them into lumber, 2×4′s etc. to build things. Canadaian’s are great at making lumber, if possible why not send lumber not logs; then we have sawmill jobs here

Glen, the part of my post regarding MGTOW was meant to ask you a question that I Don’t have an answer for.

@Leviticus….Trans Atlantic tankers that bring conflict oil to Canada bring crude. Nobody in Texas sells us refined oil. Applying the IKEA furniture policy to Canadian forest products and other natural resources would mean we could only export mobile homes and prefabricated roof trusses. It would mean we could only export jade as carved buddhas. It would mean we could only export mammoth or walrus ivory as carved chess sets.

@Ron Joseph…the Washington to Vancouver pipeline is not all that long and just happens to be cheaper than storage tanks, trucks and tankers to go that distance. Piplines carry unrefined oil. There is no economic gain in refining the oil before you put it in the pipeline. Show me a cost benefit analysis comparing the keystone pipeline if the oil was refined before transit? The NDP just don’t want the pipeline and one excuse is as good as another. BTW aviation feul is close to kerosene not octane.

A standard pipeline is 24 inches in diameter. A barrel of oil contains 160 liters of fluid. Costs 59$ per barrel. Same barrel of octane costs 195$ or more than three times the price.

Pipelines are FIFO (first in first out) iventory carrying cost. Static tank farms are just in case inventory carrying cost. Trucks and coastal tankers are just in time inventory carrying costs.

Nobody in the NDP ever actually crunched those numbers. Neither did you Ron.

Leviticus 20.13—-said, Our unfinished natural resources leave the Country at pennies on the dollar, as we purchase our finished resources back. How stupid is that?
Fully agree, and would like to add that my price went up $0.15 a litre because there is a flood thousands of miles away. How stupid is that?
I’m not an oil expert , however I can sure tell that some oil executives don’t understand their job, or they arn’t too bright.

Shipping finished product makes all the sense in the world… We burn the fuel we make and the jobs stay at home and our customers purchase the refined product that we ship them.!!!

The shipping of unprocessed natural resources creates a giant sucking sound as money and jobs leave the country along with our raw product and then the money leaves the country when we purchased the finished product back from them.
Anybody that tells you different doesn’t understand how the system works and their ignorance is showing with every comment they make about unfinished natural resources leaving the country for pennies on the dollar while we purchased our own resources back as a finished product… How stupid is that .??

Glen Craig—Glen, you sound like the Politicians and Gov’t Employees that never get out of Ottawa and actually think that they live in a typical Canadian City.
How does Airplane fuel get from Washington State to the Vancouver Airport? Yes , by pipeline, and I believe this fuel burns, just ask thousands of people that died in plane crashes.
I have seen maps of pipelines in the US and to a lesser extent Canada. There are 100’s of thousands, if not millions of miles of pipelines and they don’t carry water.
Obama used to boast that he okayed enough pipeline to circle the world twice. This does not even count Natural Gas pipelines.
Perhaps, you should use your time to explain explain your executive position at MGTOW?

“Another step in our broader effort to bring Alberta oil to the world”. Seriously? What deceit! Leftist revisionism.

The whole refine before shipment thing makes no business sense. A pipline is a sealed FIFO (First In First Out) inventory problem. The product going in the pipeline changes price daily, and it travels through the pipeline at from three to six miles per hour, so each and every segment of the pipline has a different inventory carrying cost. Nobody ships refined product any distance by pipline. Refineries are always located within truck or small coastal tanker distance of final users.Besides, filling the pipeline with high test octane turns it into one honking big Bangalore torpedo.

I buy President’s Choice branded products at my local Superstore. I get the Alberta grown “free from” hamburger patties. They are packaged with a picture of the rancher and a declaration that he raised the beef free range and without hormones. But he only raised the beef. President’s Choice did the marketing. If it made business sense for the Alberta rancher to slaughter it. grind it up, package it, pay for the regrigerated storage and transport, and print the fliers ….then he wouldn’t be a rancher any more would he.

Whoa now there Paul McCullough!… Stating that obvious disconnect in logic is going to give a lot of Notley’s PR flakes a headache for weeks to come… Can’t have that, eh?…

Daryl Herman i concur, sadly the NDPig morons think that she is doing good and will get elected again.

Look at the bright side. NDP voters will not be happy if she’s approving of pro-Alberta oil anything.

Well look at the RIGHT side – the NDPigger voters can go & f**k themselves!! Hows that? Maybe go find another place to live – as Alberta is an energy BUILT place!

One fact about Notley and invisible energy minister Marg is 250 000 jobs lost due to ideology. That averages to 1 M lives adversely affected, to the point of suicides, by ideology. TheAlberta New Demoncrats are pure demons. They do not give a bubonic rat’s ass about people. Pure Evil.

This pipe-line tour is just to have some good digs and board on the broken Albertans’ dime; nothing more.

Did I mention pure evil yet?

… Notley does not even know what she is saying anymore. She is just running down the clock to get back to her cushy PS union bureaucrat job.
… I expect that the NDP start drinking as soon as they get to the office these days.

“We’re against shipping unprocessed bitumen & all the jobs with it” – they repeated this like a mantra. So, unless that was a lie, their first priority upon being elected would have been to fast track the building of refineries. Seems that didn’t happen though. The NDP & their mainstream media propaganda machine have done a lot of work convincing themselves that winning the last election was due to anything other than a protest vote. Now they’ve deluded themselves into thinking they can con their way into another term in office.
