Keystone XL is dead, Trans Mountain is Dead & U.S. is the biggest funded Canada Anti-Oil movement activist….It’s time we think selfishly and worry about ourselves.
On September 18, 2015. Premier Brad Wall at the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association conference (CEPA) made a very profound statement that Canada should just provide energy for itself. Why do we have several Billions of dollars from U.S. funded activist groups trying to shut Canada down from expanding it’s domain and stake on the world with oil? If you didn’t know Canada has the 3rd largest supply of oil in the world; yet we still purchase oil from Saudi Arabia. Saudi oil is the sole factor of creating this economic down shift; and were responsible years ago for creating a huge increase to the economy surging inflation everywhere in the world.
Let’s not get started on NDP Premier “The Sherif of Nottingham” Notley (coined the wicked witch of the west)introducing a $3Billion carbon tax in 2017 for Alberta and now has over 100,000 Albertans out of work from the Energy sector alone. Why not build our own refineries in Alberta? Mass produce our own Crude oil into “sweet oil”? But I have done the research, and no one has built a refinery in Canada since 1986. 1976 was USA’s last built refinery. There was a big push to either rebuild, extend or close down in the energy sector here in Canada in the ’90’s. There no wondering why today we are sending hundreds of barrels a day or more using Canada rail to US refineries when they roughly outnumber Canada 7:1(148 US refineries to 19 in Canada) in refining operations. Canada years ago opted to piggy back off the US, and the Canadian Energy sector is trying to play catch up for lack of decision making years ago. With so many Environmental groups and activists fully funded with Billions stowed away for RTF(ready to fight) campaigns to be launched at our efforts to grow our very own Canadian Energy economy; this is just 1 factor that poses a large up hill battle.
Refineries in Canada are doing what needs to be done in regards to upgrading, reducing waste, monitoring corrosion, and installing new technologies to produce larger quantities at reduced risks all across the country. It’s taking these huge steps forward for our economy that will help make a difference. Although the fall of the Brent Crude and Crude oil prices are trying to squeeze out any countries left in the market for production, it is definitely taking it’s toll on the Energy sector labourers & investors all around the world.
So, Why couldn’t we just build a new oil refinery in Alberta? Why can’t we just use our own Oil sands to monopoly and jump start our economy again? The Keystone XL pipeline; a pipeline that was going to be pushed through the United States down to the south refineries has been cancelled. Next Canadian Energy tried the Trans Mountain Pipeline extension that would connect through British Columbia to the Asian Markets and that has now been put on hold or cancelled. This is due to Aboriginals being funded, again by a U.S. funded environmentalists group(TIDE CANADA); to try and make a claim on a Forest territory to be deemed a Rain Forest with a exponentially larger mass than it originally has now.
But there maybe light at the end of the tunnel. Canadian Energy is pushing to move now to the East coast with an Energy East pipeline to fund the Atlantic coast. This pipeline will build could jump start our economy, boost our nation, create jobs and make us a contender on world markets in the Energy sector. We don’t need you Obama, we will find another way to go around you & your Activists with Falsified CO2 climate change scams.
Is Premier Brad Wall proposal the next step for Canada? Should we or could we block out the south? Can we Deny & stop buying the Saudi oil stocks?
I would like to see our efforts put back into Canadian led Energy. Take my analogy of how the US pits us against each other in the growth of our Canadian energy market. It’s like two Canadian hockey teams in the Stanley Cup playoffs; the way the playoffs always breaks down it has a Canadian team vs Canadian team; so we knock each other out and the US have a better chance at winning the Stanley Cup. Let’s put our heads together and start winning our own Cups, and let’s introduce Canadian Energy to the world market. I’m listening, it’s your turn to tell us what you think we should do?
