Flying under the radar for now, but the Governor of Michigan has called for the closure of a pipeline which supplies crude oil to Sarnia refineries.

Quote

Shutting down Line 5 will result in higher oil and gas prices, propane shortages and the potential loss of thousands of direct and indirect jobs in Ontario and Quebec, as well as in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Indiana.

The pipeline is vital to delivering NGL to Sarnia, where it is processed into propane for home heating and, perhaps most importantly, to supply the agricultural sector. Almost 5,000 persons are directly employed with up to another 23,500 indirectly employed in the SPMC. One of every four jobs in Sarnia-Lambton is tied to the petrochemical industry.

Quebec would also be severely impacted were Line 5 to be shut down. It feeds Line 9, which runs to Montreal, providing about two-thirds of the crude oil refined and consumed in the province. Line 9 supplies Quebec’s only refineries — Suncor in Montreal and Valero in Lévis. These refineries produce gasoline for cars, jet fuel for the Montreal and Quebec City airports, home heating oils, petrochemicals (including polyester fibre used in clothing manufacturing and packaging) and products like asphalt.

It has been stated all the jet fuel for CYYZ comes from Sarnia

All the more reason to push for an all Canadian Pipeline 

Energy east now makes perfect sense Energy East Project Map (cer-rec.gc.ca)

 ....... along with of course cutting off any movement of energy to Michigan such as that moving through the "Great Lakes Gas Transmission Line"

Quote

Several major pipelines, including the Vector Pipeline from Illinois and the Great Lakes Gas Transmission line from western Canada satisfy the remainder of the State's natural gas demand.

I'm beginning to think that in order to even be considered for political office you should have served in the military and completed a minimum of two foreign deployments. 

Increasingly, stupid has infiltrated Republican ranks and (IMO), the radical nature of it stands as equal and opposite (and a direct result of) that on full display from Democrats. In other words, stupid feeds on itself and devours its own tail.

From a simple leadership perspective, there were some real opportunities here to forward the cause of unity and reconciliation.... both in symbolic and practical terms. That window is now closed and a perishable opportunity squandered.

People remember blatant hypocrisy long after they've forgotten about policy/spending mistakes, or any of the ethics violations that an average person would never be subject to. JT stands as an example of what I mean.

This may not be different in principle but it is in effect because people can relate to it from their own experience.... and they don't like it. Flying in the Aga Khan's private helicopter simply doesn't resonate in the same manner that this does. 

If you are constantly railing against privilege, best walk the walk....

And here is a quote from a smart guy.... just imagine what his opinion of Bill might be. I could even put forward a host of aviation analogies (mostly from passengers) on a similar vein but it would all fall on deaf ears:

The height of stupidity is most clearly demonstrated by the individual who ridicules something he knows nothing about.

This article poses the very same question I always asked people who supported Ontario's green energy plan... where are those hundreds of thousands of new, high paying green energy jobs? 

They wouldn't answer either.

Or reconcile the damage to birds wildlife while cutting down bush and forests to put in turbines and solar “farms” or better yet...where in your subdivision or downtown condo do you want the farms?? True nimbyism.

It's easy to see the magnitude of the problem, just ask someone who is in favour of the Paris Accord where they want the 80 megatons of carbon/year to come from.... in other words, what are you willing to give up in order to achieve the target. They won't tell you.

I've asked hundreds of times. The only answer I've gotten was right here a few days ago and since it involved killing off large portions of the Canadian public I'm guessing (hoping) it was simply an admission of the fact that we simply aren't going to hit the target. 

So perhaps a target analogy that many people can relate to would serve as illustrative. The average hunter only sees trophy bucks by accident. The difference between bow hunters who pursue trophy bucks exclusively and everyone else is attention to detail. Actually that understates it by quite a bit, it's detailed attention to the smallest detail. If you take up a traditional bow with the prospect of hunting seasoned bucks, the road to success is paved with little details carefully attended to.

We have collectively unlearned that to such an extent that even the roughest and most cursory details have become obscured by t-shirt slogans. Not only is the 80Mt question never answered... it's never even asked. As a result, failure is assured and everyone who has never had a trophy buck in their sights will tell you it's because they are too tough.

I was able to tick off every box...what a great day to be alive :Dancing-Chilli:

 

I used to think I was just a regular person, but I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.

I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today's standards,makes me a fascist.

I am heterosexual, which now makes me a homophobe.

I am mostly non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working classand an ally of big business.

I was baptized a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.

I am retired, which makes me useless.

I think and I reason, therefore, I doubt much that the main stream media tells me,which makes me a reactionary.

I am proud of my heritage, which makes me a xenophobe.

I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.

I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual's merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.

I (and most of the folks I know), acquired a fair education without student loan debts and little or no debt, which makes me some kind of an odd underachiever.

I believe in the defense and protection of my country and I honour those who served in the Armed Forces, which now makes me a right wing-militant.

And I also....Eat meat and drive a V8 which apparently makes me hate the the world I live in.

Please help me come to terms with the new me... because I'm just not sure who the heck I am anymore!

Funny ... it’s all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years; prior to which I had no confusion or delusions about myself.

As if all this nonsense wasn’t enough to deal with ... Now I’m not even sure which toilet to go into!

 

If any of the above bothers you..

https://www.foxbusiness.com/lifestyle/pepsico-rebrands-aunt-jemima-pearl-milling-company-june-2021

PepsiCo seems pretty happy about the Aunt Jemima rebranding effort. It leads me to wonder if the original name was actually racist (in a taunting way) or an innocuous brand name to identify a wholesome condiment for comfort food.

I suggest it was the latter and It never occurred to me that it might be anything but that.... I drive an Indian motorcycle and now have to worry about liberal nut bars vandalizing the bike. I only stay at hotels with video surveillance of the parking lot now and always confirm that i"m in the area of coverage prior to retiring for the night. I shouldn't have to do that and, IMO, only an idiot would suggest otherwise.

If I were a PepsiCo executive, the first question on my mind would be how to handle a ringing product endorsement from the Ku Klux Klan. I wonder if they considered that angle. You could easily argue that the change itself was racist and begs the question of "why shouldn't Aunt Jemima retain her place of honour on a product that has proudly carried her name and likeness for generations?"  Same goes for Indian Motorcycles.

STOP IT! You are making me as fu%&$#@ crazy as you are.

It appears nothing will stop the rampant stupidity of the Left
 

The untold story of the real 'Aunt Jemima' and the fight to preserve her legacy

 

“ You probably have never heard her name, but Nancy Green has likely been in your kitchen before. Green created the Aunt Jemima recipe, and with it, the birth of the American pancake.

"Her face on the box, that image on the box, was probably the one way that households were integrated," Sherry Williams, president of the Bronzeville Historical Society in Chicago, told ABC News.”

"She was the trusted face. Back then, you know, anybody who would look at an African American woman cooking, they knew that they can trust her cooking, that she could cook,” Hayes said.“

I actually had a raving leftist suggest I buy a HONDA cover for the bike and use that to deter vandalism in hotel parking lots. 

I'm not sure how thick the fabric is on those covers but it's likely a lot more substantial than the allotment of common sense retained by the fool who suggested it as a method of deterring his moronic colleagues.

Despite my best efforts, it's now almost impossible to avoid being affected by these fools and I still blame helmet laws for allowing the parents of these creatures to enter the gene pool.

The tweet was met by some outrage from those questioning if the former hockey player was unaware that girls could also play hockey. It appears Tootoo, who already has two daughters, was simply celebrating that he could have a son in the NHL someday.

In addition to the layoffs at AC, TS, WJ and Sunwing.....now dehavilland (500 employees)...

 

the retai sector just took another hit:

https://globalnews.ca/news/7647801/canadian-tire-national-sports-store-closures/

“says it’s closing all its National Sports retail stores to reduce overlap in the company’s sporting goods assortment and gain efficiencies.”

Gregory Craig, the retailer’s chief financial officer, told investors that all 18 stores will be closing.

He says it was a difficult decision for the company because of its impact on people.

 

Canadian Tire Corporation Limited is a Canadian retail company which operates in the automotive, hardware, sports, leisure and housewares sectors. Its Canadian operations include: Canadian Tire (including Canadian Tire Petroleum gas stations and financial services subsidiary Canadian Tire Bank), Mark's, FGL Sports (including Sport Chek and Sports Experts), PartSource, and the Canadian operations of Party City.
