Rachel Notley Heading To B.C. To Pitch Pipeline

o-NOTLEY-TRUDEAU-570.jpg
 

The project proposes to triple the bitumen-carrying capacity of the pipeline from near Edmonton to Burnaby, and increase the number of tankers leaving the Vancouver-area.

Notley said Wednesday that it was important for her to go to B.C. and tell people who link the pipeline with climate change and greenhouse gas that Alberta's climate change leadership plan "effectively delinked those issues.''

Climate Leaders Don't Build Pipelines
n-JUSTIN-TRUDEAU-large570.jpg
Back in 2011, Canada made history by being the first country to formally pull out of the Kyoto Protocol. It was a bold move, but yesterday, Justin Trudeau actually managed to one up the feat, albeit in different style. On Tuesday, he approved the Kinder Morgan and Line 3 tar sands pipelines making Canada the first country on the planet to, in effect, promise to break the commitments they made to under the Paris Climate Agreement.

According to the commitment Canada made under the Paris Agreement, called an "intended nationally determined contribution" or INDC, Canada has to reduce our national emissions 200 megatonnes by 2030. The decision to approve the Kinder Morgan and Line 3 pipelines not only make meeting this promise virtually impossible, they render other progress Canada has made on climate, essentially irrelevant.

Sen. Percy Downe: Canada Is Taking In Too Many Young Temporary Workers

“But I’m concerned that we are at an unacceptably high rate of unemployment among young people, too many people living in their parents’ basements can’t find the opportunities at all and we are offering 30,000 additional jobs to people from around the world… That’s a problem for me.”

I'm quite disappointed.  Fidel came to his father's funeral.

 

I can understand it from a political angle, but you've got to

take a chance once in a while. It's not like anyone's going

to be remembered for whether they went to Castro's service

or not.

Storm Clouds Are On The Horizon For The Trudeau Government

His recent foot in mouth moment over his comments on Fidel Castro is just this past weekend's storm cloud. We also have other storm clouds developing on the horizon:

• Political donations and Trudeau's "cash for access"
• Decisions to be made on three pipeline proposals
• Buying more CF-18s when the head of the air force says it is not necessary
• Gag orders around the CF-18 purchase
• UN peace-keeping missions
• Our combat role against ISIL
• Climate change negotiations with the provinces
• Health care negotiations with the provinces
• Electoral reform
• Lack of action and funding on First Nations issues
• How to deal with the new administration in Washington
• The foolish comment about being willing to open up NAFTA
• The unraveling of trade talks
• The spiraling out of control debt, which eventually will have to be paid off by taxpayers including the middle class that Trudeau claims to be wanting to help
• The economy also remains the number one issue of concern for Canadians.

And the list goes on.

Canada Cannot Afford To Be Complacent About Growing Inequality

From this view, it may seem Canadians should have no complaints. But look more closely and there is pause for concern. Our pattern of income growth and inequality largely mirrors what is happening globally -- dramatic income growth at the top, with only modest gains lower down the income spectrum.

The bottom three fifths of families saw their incomes grow by nine to 15 per cent over this same 20-year period. The second highest fifth did a little better with their income growing by 19 per cent -- while the top fifth saw their incomes expand by 35 per cent, two to three times as much growth as those in the bottom 60 per cent.

I didn't realize that many Cubans had immigrated to Canada.

Trudeau's Liberal Party of Canada-- is it a real socialist political party?

 

Canada has three big parties.  From right to left are The Conservatives, The Liberals and The New Democrats.  There are other parties but those are the main three with the liberals sitting in the middle.  By comparison to U.S. parties, yes they would be socialist.

But in Canada and England even the conservative parties have more sense than not to fool with universal health care and pensions, etc.

Canada's Trudeau to skip Castro funeral after backlash

Outrage and mockery about Trudeau's fond words for Castro, who had been an honorary pallbearer at the funeral in 2000 of Trudeau's father, former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, has threatened to end the Liberal leader's long honeymoon.

Noting the "many questions" about whether Trudeau would attend the funeral, spokeswoman Andree-Lyne Halle said in an email the prime minister would skip the event.

"His schedule doesn't permit it," she said.

You're right. I can't see how a trade embargo with the US would negatively affect their economy. I don't know what I was thinking.

 

LOL

 

Well, I'm NOT sayin' it didn't hurt 'em down there at all, mind you.

 

But, one of the smartest moves the bearded jerk ever made and which seemed to have helped keep him in power during his later years was when he modified his originally tough stance against having U.S. Dollars circulate within their economy, and which as I recall happened sometime in the mid-'90s.

Just a thought here Lawrence, but considering the fact that Fidel's little economic experiment especially started going south right after the fall of Soviet Russia's did and thus the rubles would cease coming in to help prop up Cuba's economy, AND taking into account that there were/are indeed a number of other western industrialized nations who never went along with our embargo, I'd say that just these factors alone might speak more to an answer to your question.

I'm not defending the guy. He was a tyrant and a terrible guy. But how much economic failure was due to Castro's policies and how much was due to the embargoes?

Well, of course this is the case, Bogie. Most of those ex-pat Cubans who live in Miami now and who give voice to the fact of Castro's economic failure, were/are too SMART to have moved up your way there to the frozen North and weather those damn..brrrrrr...Winters of yours each and every year!

 

(...and thus all those voices all calling for these failed measures to depose the bearded jerk that WE tried all these years were small in number and mostly went unheard up your way all these years...in the frozen north!)

BNN's Daily Chase: Richard Branson calls Canada 'breath of fresh air' in wake of Trump election


Andrew Bell

 

BRANSON CALLS CANADA 'BREATH OF FRESH AIR'

After a U.S. election campaign marred by falsehood, Canada is emerging as a stable and open-for-business destination for investment. Brooke Unger, Americas editor at the Economist, told BNN last month that this country stands out as free-trade beacon in world moving toward protectionism.

Our Top Line today: Virgin Group’s Richard Branson tells our own Paige Ellis that "Canada is even more of a breath of fresh air today than it was two months ago….We need a country like Canada."
