After Failed Pipeline Crisis Meeting, Trudeau Makes Vague Pledge To Pursue “Legislative Options”

He offered no details.

After his pipeline crisis meeting with Rachel Notley and John Horgan, Justin Trudeau tried to spin the meeting as a chance for him to discuss what the government is doing next.

Of course, what really happened is that the meeting failed.

Right after the meeting, Horgan announced that he was still opposing the pipeline.

So, nothing has changed.

After Horgan, Scheer, and Notley spoke, Trudeau addressed the media:

No details

Trudeau says he’s telling Morneau to negotiate with Kinder Morgan on potential financial support, while vaguely saying he will “reassert and reinforce” federal authority. Additionally, he said he could ‘expand’ the ocean protection plan.

Yet, Trudeau offered no details on any of that, and gave no indication of why he failed to overcome Morgan’s opposition.

Additionally, Trudeau didn’t explain why there are even negotiations taking place, if the federal government has the authority to get the project going.

As I said on Twitter, “Trudeau says he has constitutional authority to get Trans Mountain expansion built. So why is it still being discussed? Why isn’t it already underway? If you have the authority than stop talking and use it. If you don’t, then stop lying.”

I knew his Mother closely . and when he spoke to me, he had a wimpy hand, no force at all. When he spoke to a recent pre-vote rally I was part, all he said was displayed on a screen he read back designed by liberal thinkers
I am not impressed at all. I can not change those memories.

Is this a Quebec Crisis? No! Therefore, there is nothing to see here folks.
Had it been a Quebec crisis, Trudeau would not make the mistake of ‘just popping in for a few minutes discussions then quickly leave. Instead, Trudeau sit for hours at end defending Quebec; for Quebec.
We
Alberta and other western provinces? Well, they just have yto defend themselves.

Remember this? I bet many canadians have not heard this everyday: In audio recording, Trudeau says Bill C-24 makes citizenship conditional upon ‘good behaviour’ CTVNews.ca Staff  Published Sunday, September 27, 2015 10:26PM EDT  The Liberal Party believes that terrorists should get to keep their Canadian citizenship … because I do,” Trudeau told a Winnipeg town hall in July. “And I’m willing to take on anyone who disagrees with that. He added: “As soon as you make citizenship for some Canadians conditional on good behaviour, you devalue citizenship for everyone.” Trudeau was conducting town halls across the country back in July.… Read more »

Trudeau with all his skills as Prime Minister on full display for everyone to see, he has shown very clearly, that he doesn’t understand the position of Prime Minister and that he has never had anything resembling a plan, let alone a solution to the crisis that he created all by relying upon ideology and the support of foreign funded NGOs. As Prime Minister , you are the most powerful politician in Canada and he doesn’t get it; that he has the authority to build the pipeline and it has been reaffirmed many times by the Supreme Court of Canada.… Read more »
