Trudeau is the one who nationalised the Trans Mountain pipeline to ensure the expansion got built, and he's the one who has been saying that it is going through regardless of any opposition. He has stated that it is a national priority regardless of any green initiatives.
Ah, but said asbestos was in Quebec, which means that the Liberals will move Heaven and Earth to get it to market somehow.Yes because his initiatives are aimed at Canadians directly, just like asbestos was, bad for here but no problem exporting it.
Pierre Trudeau poured massive amounts of taxpayer money into subsidising and expanding the oil industry. This included helping to bail out Syncrude and taking an equity stake in the company when the oil companies backing the proposal said that it was too big of a risk to privately finance. Syncrude were the ones who kicked off the oil sands industry on a big scale in Alberta, and it was their success which inspired other companies to follow (GCOS were there before, but were a small scale operation at the time). The province of Ontario also backed the venture financially with an equity stake.Well his father as PM a scant generation ago shut the door on Canadian crude exploration and expansion and is still bitterly remembered for it for this.
I always liked Rick, especially went he went on one of his rants.My husband has a soft spot for Adrienne Clarkson. He thinks she was the best GG that we had for a long time. She'd show up when asked, dressed appropriately, and was always pleasant to talk to.
Maybe we should have Rick Mercer, gay, Newfie, CBC employee.
