PURGE: Trudeau Government Removing All Conservative Appointees From National Energy Board

Under current legislation, those appointed to the board under the Conservative Harper Government would have kept their positions until after the 2019 federal election.

It seems the real goal of the Trudeau government’s new “environmental legislation” is being revealed.

The National Observer is reporting that “All 19 politically-appointed members of the National Energy Board are slated to be swept from their positions under new environmental legislation introduced last week by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government.”

The government openly admits that the upcoming legislation is meant to remove those appointed by Stephen Harper.

“While public servants would retain jobs in a restructured energy oversight regime, the bill introduced in the House of Commons is designed to jettison the current members of the pipeline regulator, the federal Natural Resources Department said on Tuesday.”

This purge of Conservative appointees will only add to the growing concern that the government is stacking the deck against the energy industry.

Tens of billions of dollars in investment has already been lost as companies see Canada’s energy sector as less profitable and less predictable.

Because of how the Trudeau government is imposing carbon taxes and expanding bureaucratic regulations, our energy sector loses competitiveness by the day, and it’s only getting worse.

The head of Suncor Steve Williams recently said“We’re having to look at Canada quite hard. The cumulative impact of regulation, and higher taxation than other jurisdictions is making Canada a more difficult place to allocate capital in.” 

While the Trudeau government has deceptively tried to give the impression that they want some projects to be approved, their actions show the complete opposite. They are intentionally weakening our homegrown energy industry.

At this point, a political purge of the NEB is disappointing, but not surprising.

Liberals have taken Ontario down=”have not” province, the east coast is liberal=”have not” provinces, so if they hurt Alberta more??then =”have not” province. British Columbia is the only “have” province left, because Quebec has never shared across Canada it always needs as it is distinct and always supported by all of Canada but usually governs us all. How long will British Columbia be able to support all of Canada?? We all carry so much debt. What do you think is going to happen now?

That is the point at which BC and their “me first” policy will drive them out the door, the first province to leave confederation. It was always ok to have Alberta carry the biggest load of transfer payments but you can bet that BC will not be willing to be gouged like Alberta was. Say goodbye to Canada as a Confederation of provinces.

Gordon, Quebec never ever signed on to the confederation. They are not part of the union. However, they collect all their own taxes and still collect 11.3 billion in transfer payments mainly from Alberta. All provinces had to agree to the federation and Quebec did not Pierre decided as the head of a non government at the time that 9 was all we needed. How can the head of a non government make decisions for a government that does not exist? Quebec is distinct all right. Our fed government is de facto and Trudeau being from Quebec should not even… Read more »

The lotus Land citizens of lower mainland and Victoria and the Vancouver Island are in a World of their own. The Interior residents are very similar to Alberta’s citizens hard working, wanting projects to be implemented so that the trades people and the service industry will thrive. Interesting figure is that 59% of B.C. Residence make under $50,000 per year, The big wage earners are in Vancouver. They control all aspects of what’s good for B.C. from legislation, to environmental. The Interior residents are considered second class citizens, except for Hollywood North Kelowna with it’s Calgary and Vancouver Elitists. They… Read more »

The ideas of Doug Christie, Western Canada Concept and Western Block will arise in response to the Trudeau policies. Of course we will need our version of CSIS to protect us from CSIS.
It is also possible that Trudeau is purposely devaluing Canadian investments to pave the way for a Chinese takeover. I vaguely suspect China and the US are Mutt & Jeff in the globalist consolidation of Canada.

Do NOT go onto the CBC site and say things like that. They consider any comment even slightly negative about Trudeau to be hate speech. This is something that is expected from an organization that is financed and controlled by Trudeau and Butts.

If any purging needs to be done, it’s Trudeau himself and his incompetent Liberal government that must be purged in 2019.

So typical of this government. Discouraging revenue producing investments in Canada through over regulation. The carbon tax will do NOTHING to lower emissions except leave Canadians with less income. He’s got to go!

Jihadi Justine Castro is fulfilling his evil agenda as fast as he can by eliminating systematically EVERY Conservative Party member involved in every Government Department no matter how much it costs financially or how many thousands of jobs are being lost. It’s deliberate, another nail in Canada’s coffin pounded in by Jr. the muslim mental case, to destroy our Country, graphically display his HATRED of Canadians, and is enjoying his crazy self doing it. Jr. is nuts, stoned, and perverted and has to be stopped.

The nut didn’t fall far from the tree. Trudeau Sr. restructured Canada in such a way that the French could always be used to keep the British off balance. The old “rule by division” technique. Trudeau is going his old man one better: support foreign wars that will create masses of refugees, bring them into the country and now there is another group of people to use in the rule by division game. It’s not the fault of the refugees, who I’m sure would rather stay in the homeland they have inhabited for far longer than Israel has existed. By… Read more »

You see , Trudeau is getting ready for the CANADIAN take over before the 2019 election . We have to be aware of this ,it will happen as long as we don’t pay attention and listen and read ,and continue sitting on our hands and doing nothing. There has to be a way we REAL CANADIANS can take our CANADA back asap now. or you lose CANADA for ever.

I cannot begin to describe the sense of utter hopelessness I feel when I see what puppet Trudeau and master puppeteer, Gerald Butts, is doing to our country. They are systematically doing a divide and conquer to all Canadians. PItting province against province, people against people and pulling the racist card whenever the PM feels it suits him and now deciding that some parts of our country need to go to rack and ruin. Can we not start a Canada wide petition to have him removed? How many signatures would be required for a petition to be brought into Parliament?… Read more »

As you can see, Soros and the global bankers have their “control” with her hand up meat puppet Trudeau’s arse. Perhaps that is why his mouth always looks like it doesn’t know what is going to come out of it next (or even into it, for that matter).

Another worrisome fact is that a lot of young Canadians have no idea what is happening to our country as they are too busy trying to scrape together a living . There is nothing reported by The subsidized CBC and most Media. I can see Trump has a swamp to drain while he is trying to save the US of A……….while we have… Read more »

This Liberal cancer has no regard for whom it hurts just as long as their goals of suppression of the opposing people are met and it suits their needs.

Just one more reason why Alberta and Saskatchewan need to get out of confederation with Canada folks. Even if the NDP in Alberta and the Liberals Nationally are sent packing in 2019, they will come back to haunt us folks in a few short years if we stay in confederation. To ensure that we and our children have a future folks, we have to get out of confederation!!!! Confederation is killing us folks!
