If you ever wondered why the East gets to import oil by tanker but BC is against exporting it in tankers, .

Can you blame Albertans for being pissed? 

Canada is the Laughing Stock of the World

Rachel Notley is telling the truth ,

Alberta’s oil and gas companies have figured out how to pull off  


Rachel Notley said because of "Air Barrels" 


Alberta is losing billions every year 


To Fight “Air Barrels”  

As Prices Continue To Plunge

The government estimates Alberta is losing

$80 million a day due to this discount,

Industry manipulates the current system.

Alberta will never be able to stop “Air Barrels”

Instead of fixing the real problems



The world ranking of Canada's Oil  

Deposit #3 (production #6)

Canadian oil sands bitumen have fallen so far that many producers



 Because Alberta oil is sold for pennies on the dollar we are 




 Canada imports 759,000 barrels of oil per day at full market price

Rachel Notley said this is killing Canada

Most of the benefits go to Foreign Entities and Big Businesses

More than two-thirds or 71% of the ownership of oil sands production in

Canada is now owned by foreign entities 

Foreign Investors they do not live here so

They do not care about Canada's environment

They only care about their bottom line today

 Canada will not be able to live up to its 
Paris Agreement obligations for the year 2050.


Today the Alberta Tar Sands have been dubbed the largest

And most destructive  

 Industrial project in human history


In 100 years only $1.2 billion has been invested in Clean up

Today it will cost you to clean up

$200 billion more than has been publicly reported.  

The Cleanup bill is greater than the

Value of the entire oil and gas industry

How Big Are Canada’s Oil Sands?

We had 100 years of Alberta oil

Today our Current Outstanding Public Debt of Canada is approximate:

$629,572,079,450.28 CDN.

The Cost of Government Debt in Canada, 2017

Believe it or not

Alberta

Will be $71 billion of debt by the time the

NDP face voters in 2019

Alberta is on pace to be $96 billion in debt by 2024

Manitoba Hydro's burgeoning debt surpasses $19 billion

This is a dramatics change in fortunes for a province

That celebrated being debt free 20 years earlier

 Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

Canada is now Number ONE in the world for Subsidies

IMF Pegs Canada’s Fossil Fuel Subsidies at $34 Billion

This is making Canada the laughing stock of the world

Justin Trudeau’s Killed Energy East Pipeline

Justin Trudeau’s Family Fortune Was Made With Oil Money in Eastern Canada

Twice now we have voted in a Trudeau

 Every time we vote in a Trudeau everyone in Canada Cries

Rachel Notley is telling the truth this is killing Canada

 It costs Canada 5,064.444 barrels of oil every year

Just to keep one full time worker [working]

Canada will be the next Venezuela 

Trudeau is a laughingstock amongst world leaders.

He arrives in foreign nations preaching climate change,

Gender equality, progressive trade, diversity and inclusion.

Some governments are politer than others in telling him to hit the road and mind his own business.

He is not an emissary for the United Nations and does not speak for most Canadians.



The BC Premier is behaving like a pampered and spoiled brat who does not want anyone else to touch his toys. 

There is sound reason why interprovincial works projects are under federal jurisdiction – to prevent the very sort of localized spanner-in-the-works behaviour by one province over the interests of others.

The BC exclusivity is the exact opposite of the inclusiveness Trudeau preaches. 
The contradiction is palpable and emphasised by federal government inaction.

Divisive Politics…

BACK AND FORTH

Sort of puts things in perspective ……

If you ever wondered why the East gets to import oil by tanker but BC is against exporting it in tankers, read this .

With all the fuss over the Kinder Morgan Trans-Mountain pipeline project, one would think that British Columbia was under siege from petroleum interests. 

That is an epic fairy tale. 

Our federal government should have the same approach to petroleum pipelines no matter where they are proposed or built.  

Similarly, movement of oil by ship should be the same no matter what part of Canada movement is in.

The facts tell an entirely different story:

Few people are aware that the East Coast of Canada has about 4,000 inbound trips by oil tankers each year. 

Tankers account for about one fifth of the 20,000 inbound vessel trips on the East Coast. 

Over 82 million tonnes of various petroleum and fuel products are moved in and out of 23 Atlantic Canada ports. 

Almost all the movement of crude oil and petroleum products in Atlantic Canada is through the following ports:

Come by Chance, Newfoundland and Labrador
Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia
Saint John, New Brunswick

In Quebec, 25 million tonnes of crude oil and various petroleum products are moved in and out of 39 ports where cargo is loaded or unloaded.


Eighty-nine per cent of the shipments of crude oil and various petroleum products are through Quebec City and Montreal.



Over 4.1 million tonnes of oil products are moved from 29 marine facilities in and out of ports in the Great Lakes – St. Lawrence Seaway.


 Of this: 


*       over 1.8 million tonnes are shipped between Canada and the United States


*       over 2.3 million tonnes are imported/exported in and out of the Great Lakes – St. Lawrence Seaway system.



The Canada East pipeline would have disrupted the vested interests who import and refine foreign crude.



The screaming of Montreal politicians over building the Energy East pipeline has nothing to do with protecting the ecology or preventing oil spills unless we overlook the hazards  of marine shipping and ignore 



Montreal pouring a few million liters of raw sewage into the 
St. Lawrence River. 



It is all a smokescreen to allow investors in the current setup to continue to make money.



The screaming out of British Columbia has nothing to do with ecology.



 British Columbians are attempting to punish corporations and provinces that produce petroleum products for no better reason than they feel good about themselves as a result. 



Perhaps we should ban fishing, declare a moratorium on west coast vacations and ban passenger liners from west coast ports in retaliation.



British Columbians and their Premier don’t care about $ billions in infrastructure investment and the jobs created, the income to provinces and the federal government or lost tax revenues that can help pay for the services we need.  



Please let me know if you can fathom why tanker traffic is barred from the coastline of British Columbia but not Quebec.



 The hypocrisy and double standards are blatantly obvious and unacceptable.



The notion that a pipeline company must account for downstream effects of product shipped is ludicrous.


 If we ship crude to a terminal on the west coast and it is bought by China or another Pacific Rim nation we cannot be held accountable for carbon emissions of the importing nation.

If this has to be the case, why is BC coal not counted in the same fashion?

That is where ideologues like McKenna and Trudeau are dangerous.  

They believe they can impose their utopian standards on other nation while their inane policies are strangling our economy at home.

Even worse, the environmental standards imposed on Canadian projects do not apply to foreign oil imports.

Our government is making it harder for us to become energy self-sufficient.  

Why would we import oil rather than produce oil for our own use?

 Something stinks and it is not Alberta bitumen.

We need grownups at the federal helm; people who put the well-being of the entire nation and our society first.

Our Prime Minister preaches diversity and inclusiveness while practicing exclusion and divisiveness.

The BC Premier is behaving like a pampered and spoiled brat who does not want anyone else to touch his toys. 

There is sound reason why interprovincial works projects are under federal jurisdiction – to prevent the very sort of localized spanner-in-the-works behaviour by one province over the interests of others.

 The BC exclusivity is the exact opposite of the inclusiveness Trudeau preaches.
The contradiction is palpable and emphasised by federal government inaction.

He is not an emissary for the United Nations and does not speak for most Canadians.
