It should be a no-brainer for every Canadian national political party to support energy independence for our nation. By refusing to do so, the Trudeau Liberals show they are in thrall to the radical-left.
During the recent Liberal convention, some reasonable members of their party brought forward a resolution calling for the party to support Canadian energy independence.
For a party that claims (emptily) that they support the energy industry, voting in favour of the energy independence resolution should have been the easiest thing in the world.
It should have passed with over 90%.
Instead, it was rejected.
As Don Braid said in the Calgary Herald, “The resolution came from the party’s Alberta section. It was eminently reasonable and responsible. But it wasn’t good enough to become Liberal doctrine. The winning resolutions focused on a guaranteed minimum income, decriminalization of consensual sex work and the sex trade, pharmacare, a Canadian Environmental Bill of Rights, and a good deal more. But the idea that Canadian oil and natural gas should fill all of Canada’s needs for oil and natural gas? Not a chance.”
As many people are realizing, the Liberals under Trudeau are something different than what they once were. Rather than trying to be a somewhat balanced party, the Trudeau Liberals have moved far to the left. The virtue-signalling, the identity politics, the favoring of foreign interests over national interests, all are examples of radical-left thinking.
We are now in the absurd situation of having a governing party that would rather our nation buy oil from countries like Saudi Arabia and Venezuela, instead of making use of the resources we have here at home.Instead of supporting good jobs for our citizens, the Trudeau Liberals want us to make other countries rich while decimating our own energy industry.
That will make foreign oil-producing countries happy, but it’s bad news for the Canadian people.
