Trudeau takes $18 million in taxpayer money to fund private airport at golf resort.

Conservative MP John Barlow highlighted in Parliament that the Liberals were taking “$18 million from taxpayers to fund a private airport at the elite Cabot Links golf resort.” 

He further added that the airport was for their “millionaire friends to park their private jets.” 

In a tweet he posted, he stressed that this decision by the Liberal government “is decimating the Allan J. MacEachen Port Hawkesbury Airport and small businesses like Celtic Air Services.”

Trudeau responded by saying that “Conservatives give advantages and benefits to the wealthiest in the hopes that it will trickle down to growth for everyone else.” ( IOW, Harper made me do it ! )

He tried to emphasize how Conservatives shot down his tax plan when he came to power. He did not, however, answer MP Barlow’s question. 

Paige MacPherson, Atlantic director of Canadian Taxpayer Federation, responded to this incident. “This is an absurd waste of taxpayer dollars,” she said. “Airports already exist in the vicinity of the golf course. The government does not have to fund this airport, especially if it is private.”

We contacted the Prime Minister’s Office for a response. At the time of this article’s publication, there has been no response.

Only one country is contemplating destroying its own resource sector: Canada

Development is proceeding apace everywhere but here

aprime_minister_trudeau30253.jpg?quality

 

The long saga of the Liberal government’s Bill C-48, the West Coast oil tanker ban, and Bill C-69, the new project-approval regime, may be coming to an end this month. It will not go well.

The Senate will likely pass Bill C-48 against the recommendations of its own committee that studied the bill. And on Wednesday, the Trudeau government said it is only willing to accept a minority of the more than 180 amendments proposed by the Senate to C-69, euphemistically called the “No Pipelines” Bill by Alberta’s Premier Jason Kenney. That is, it will accept only those changes proposed by senators aligned with the Liberal party, while rejecting any suggested amendments backed by the industry and provinces who rely on oil and gas.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government has said it wants to “develop our resources responsibly.” Both these bills will almost certainly make resource development more difficult, if not impossible. Add to these Trudeau’s carbon taxes aimed at curbing fossil fuels and regulations such as the new clean fuel standard, and it raises a serious question: What is Canada’s actual resource plan for the future?

According to polls, most Canadians want mining and fossil fuel development to take place with proper environmental safeguards. But numerous politicians have expressed their desire to stop resource development altogether. Their plan is for no more oilsands projects. No more pipelines. No more natural gas fracking. And no more coal. Some politicians are even going so far as considering putting an end to mining. In other words, no more responsible resource development. No resource development at all.

Quebec’s premier wants to reduce his province’s oil consumption by 40 per cent by 2030. Elizabeth May, head of the Green party, wants to ban the importation of foreign oil and ban all new development of fossil fuels here in Canada. Plenty of NDPers oppose all fossil fuel development, including LNG plants.

While Canada debates whether to stop using our resources, most countries are eagerly making more use of theirs. Even as the Obama administration in the U.S. tried getting coal-fired electricity replaced by natural gas and renewables, it was not afraid to let U.S. oil production double and even eliminated the ban on U.S. oil exports to enable production growth.

Norway, considered a climate leader par excellence, has been busily developing its offshore oil and gas reserves. Whether it is Guyanese, African or Middle Eastern oil, Chinese coal or Australian LNG, resource development is proceeding apace everywhere except in Canada.

Other countries understand that global fossil fuel demand, currently at 100 million barrels per day, will not disappear entirely at least for several decades, if at all. Petrochemicals are critical for many products we consume today and technology is not yet available to provide a substitute for oil as a fuel for industrial uses, long-haul transportation, shipping and aviation.

Trudeau ignores Albertans’ righteous anger, raising odds that Canadian Confederation will collapse

Canada is a nation covering a vast landmass. That landmass contains many different resources, resulting in a national economy that is really a bunch of varied provincial economies woven (often loosely) together.

As a result, Canada has many different economic interest groups, all demanding a system that works for their respective region.

And of course, those economic interests quickly become political interests.

Keeping our country together thus requires ensuring that each region is able to make the most of their resources and grow their economy as much as possible.

So, showing favouritism to one region, or blocking the advancement of one regional economy while encouraging others, is the ‘perfect’ way to provoke anger and cause a national unity crisis.

Avoiding a unity crisis is actually quite easy, as the Harper Government showed. Stephen Harper was often quite unpopular in Quebec, yet he was respectful towards Quebec’s economic interests and never used the power of the central government to weaken Quebec’s potential prosperity. As a result, support for separatism in Quebec collapsed during Harper’s term in office and any concern about national unity went away for years.

But now, a new national unity crisis is brewing, and it’s being provoked by the Trudeau government.

The recent Alberta Provincial Election was in many ways a referendum on the Trudeau Liberals. After all, Rachel Notley had (until the last minute), tied herself to an approach of ‘working with’ the Liberal government, imposing a carbon tax and increasing regulations in ‘return’ for what was supposed to be a smooth process for pipeline approval and construction.

That approach failed miserably.

Albertans watched as the regulations and carbon tax were imposed, while the pipelines languished, investment fled, and the economy continued to struggle on brutally.

In response, Jason Kenny and the United Conservatives campaigned on a clear agenda of opposing the policies of the Trudeau Liberals, and taking the shackles off the Alberta energy industry.

Given the choice between a ‘do Trudeau’s bidding’ approach and a ‘confront Trudeau & stand up for Alberta approach,’ Albertans decisively went with the latter, turfing the NDP and giving the UCP a massive win in both popular votes and in seats.

It was an incredibly clear message being sent:

Albertans are sick and tired and aren’t going to take it anymore.

It was also a warning, and a warning delivered in a constructive way.

As much as the left tries to demonize him, the fact is that Jason Kenney is an expression of the righteous anger that is being directed in a way the seeks to keep Canada together and reduce support for rising separatist sentiment.

Kenney has sought to work with Quebec, increase support for Confederation by reworking the equalization system in a way that acknowledges the economic struggles facing Albertans, and has pushed to either re-write or scrap legislation that unfairly discriminates against Alberta’s oil and Western Canadian resources.

Looking at all of that, we can see that Jason Kenney’s agenda would help bring Canadians closer together. Nobody believes that Quebec would be upset if Alberta got its way economically. It’s quite possible to both support Alberta’s economy and support Quebec’s economy. In fact, that’s the only way to really keep Canada together.

This gives Trudeau a golden opportunity to stem the growing national unity crisis.

Yet, Trudeau has ignored that opportunity.

He’s ignored the righteous anger of Albertans, he’s ignored Jason Kenney’s effort against C-48 & C-69, and he’s ignored the voices of Western Canadians.

By forcing through Bills C-69 and C-48, and by ignoring the amendments put forth by Alberta and Canada’s energy businesses, while also refusing to re-open the equalization formula, Trudeau has sent a message of his own to Alberta.

And that message is “shut up, keep giving your money to the federal government, keep producing wealth that gets taken from you, and keep competing with both hands tied behind your back.”

Basically, Albertans are being told to accept de facto economic enslavement, in which they fund much of the rest of Canada, while the very source of that funding is restricted and strangled by the same federal government taking the money away in the first place.

How messed up is that?

And people are seeing this, which is why it’s no surprise that support for separatism is rising.

The ignorance and contempt on display from the Trudeau government is appalling. The fact is that on the current course of the Liberal government, the righteous anger in Alberta is only going to get worse.

That means the next leader of Alberta after Jason Kenney will likely not only be more aggressive, but will be far less supportive of Canadian Confederation. If Kenney’s approach doesn’t work because Trudeau refuses to let it work, then Albertans will be 100% justified in electing someone who takes an even tougher approach. And many will look at Quebec and think that ‘since Quebec has had so much success threatening separation, maybe that’s what has to happen next.’

With some polls already showing support for separatism in Alberta at 50%, the reality is that a national unity crisis is already here. And while I’ve explained above how that crisis can easily be brought to an end, the Trudeau Liberals clearly have no intention of doing anything to stop it. To the contrary, they seem to be doing everything possible to accelerate the collapse of Canadian Confederation.

Because of that, the upcoming federal election is about more than just who will lead our next federal government. It may determine whether Canada survives as a unified country.

Wouldn’t put out that For Sale sign up just yet as I’m pretty sure the problem will be fixed come October. And if for some reason it did happen, Alberta would have a Calgary stampede the likes of which Canada has never seen before! I have not talked to ONE person who likes the idiot. You just have to know that when even our resident Socialist doesn’t defend  him ...Trudeau’s  history !

I hope they air that bit on national media.....the current ad with the 4 people debating Trudeau is lame...especially the comment about gas prices (which is currently cheaper than it has been in 6 months). The Conservative communications group needs to get aggressive....the libs won’t be softballing their ads....the ghost of Steven Harper will be front and center.

Speaking of Harper-just heard on TV he might be heading to England to help with their BREXIT(sp).

Good choice.

In a world of lions, Canada is led by sheep

Everywhere we turn, Canada is getting bullied and disrespected.

Nowhere is that more obvious than in how China continues escalating their aggression towards us, while our government refuses to respond with even a shred of strength or resolve.

Canada’s so-called ‘leaders’ only seem to have one strategy (if you can even call it that) for dealing with this onslaught: Beg for more meetings, be nice, never push back, never stand up for ourselves, and just hope that the big bad meanies will decide to use compassion and kindness after a while.

Of course, that strategy is failing miserably, and only encourages more aggression.

The more we look at it, the more we can see the core problem: in a world of lions, Canada is led by sheep.

Most Canadians, at least in our own lives, know that when someone treats you like garbage you have to stand up for yourself. Otherwise, everyone else will see that you can be mistreated. It’s really a common-sense thing that most people apply on a day-to-day basis.

 Unfortunately, our leaders are totally bereft of common-sense.

 

Instead, they act like they’re running a student union at a left-wing university, somehow thinking that every problem can be solved with the right combo of words, and a perfectly calibrated level of ‘wokeness.’

Turns out that doesn’t work in the real world.

Sure, Canada’s leaders may think that pre-emptively giving in and being nice is the way to handle things, but if the countries we’re dealing with are willing to use aggression and we aren’t, then Canada is put at an immediate and substantial disadvantage.

This isn’t about whether we like or even respect other world leaders as individuals, it’s about recognizing that other countries are exhibiting a level of toughness that we simply don’t see here at home among those in charge.

Our leaders appear blind to the fact that Canada has substantial potential power, whether it’s from our productive workforce, our gigantic amount of natural resources, our advanced level of technology, our immense landmass, and the residual respect that remains from our long commitment to our national values of defending freedom.

We have a GDP comparable to Russia, we have the world’s most powerful nation as our close ally, and we have the resources the world desperately wants and needs. Other countries need us far more than we need them.

Yet, because of the lack of patriotism, and lack of strength exhibited in our leaders (a lack particularly evident among the Trudeau Liberals), we are squandering all of our advantages, and negotiating from a position of weakness.

In fact, we aren’t really negotiating at all, since we apparently can’t even get our phone calls returned by the Chinese.

People will look back on this era and wonder how a nation with so much potential power and influence managed to become so weak and disrespected, and unless we find some backbone soon, the consequences of our pathetic leadership will reverberate for years and even decades to come.

“Mr. Trudeau and Ms. Freeland made some modest new pledges of support to Ukraine, whose military confrontation with Moscow, after Russian troops occupied Crimea and began attacks on eastern Ukraine in 2014 has left it beleaguered.”

 

Still waiting for Trudeau to follow through on his promise to tell Putin “to his face” to get out of the Ukraine.

China just laughed in Canada's face – what now?

The Chinese government has now delivered what the kids today would call a “sick burn” against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland.

 

The words uttered on Wednesday by China’s foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang come after Trudeau and Freeland have insisted that U.S. President Donald Trump has backed up Canada over the issue of the two detained Canadians and also that they’ve rallied other countries to their side in the ongoing spat with Beijing and have people in their corner.

Not so fast, says China.

We hope that the Canadian side will not be too naive,” said Geng Shuang. “First, Canada shouldn’t naively think that gathering so-called allies to put pressure on China will work. Second, the Canadian side should not naively believe that its so-called allies can really make concrete efforts for Canada’s interests. What they are doing at most is lip service, because after all it is a matter between China and Canada.”

This is China laughing in our faces — telling us that we don’t have as many friends as we think and that even when our “so-called allies” do step forward to lobby our cause, they’re only doing it half-heartedly.
