Trudeau was in Calgary to speak to oil and gas industry service providers in a round table with Environment Minister Jim Carr and Premier Notley on February 4. During the afternoon press conference with Premier Notley at the Calgary YWCA, Justin Trudeau said he's been meeting with workers and he hears their concerns.
But is that really true? Who has Trudeau been meeting with?
Wednesday night, the official itinerary says that Prime Minister Trudeau toured the international Brotherhood of Electrical Workers training facility in Edmonton for 20 minutes and then met briefly with members of the building trades of Alberta, before dinner. The only blue collar types Trudeau met with while he was in Alberta were trades unions.
What about all those real people I talk to everyday out on the street? Those people are the real face of the economic downturn in Alberta. They are moms and dads, our brothers and sisters and our friends and neighbours. They're losing their jobs, they're running out of employment insurance and they're out of severance. They are the people Notley and Trudeau don’t want to hear from. They didn't vote for the NDP and they didn’t vote for the Liberals.
The Canadian government has pledged over 4 billion dollars to help developing countries fight climate change. Much of that money came right from Alberta. And yet, these people in Alberta don’t want a handout to chase imaginary problems. They want jobs to fight very real unemployment.
