But oil from Western Canada gets punished with the destructive tax.
As he ‘stands up’ to Saudi Arabia, Justin Trudeau doesn’t want you to notice how anti-Canadian his energy policy is, and how it directly benefits the Saudis at the expense of Canadians:
While oil from Western Canada gets hit with the federal carbon tax, oil being imported into Canada from Saudi Arabia is exempted from the tax.
It’s an epic betrayal of our Canadian energy industry, and it makes the statements of the Trudeau government totally empty when they claim to be standing up against the Saudi Kingdom.
Here’s how Toronto Sun columnist Lorne Gunter put it:
“Just a quick question for the Trudeau government about its current tiff with the Saudis: If you’re serious about standing up to Riyadh, how come you are still giving their oil a free pass? How come you have exempted it from your upcoming carbon tax and are not subjecting Saudi oil to the same environmental regulations you have imposed on Western Canadian oil?
Gunter adds, “You’re supposed to be in a battle with the Saudis, yet an objective outside observer might think you’re at war with Alberta, instead.”
Weakness & Disloyalty
The Trudeau government has shown total weakness in their handling of the Saudi spat. They even admitted they ‘weren’t planning any responses,’ showing their incompetence and cowardice. But making things worse, is that they’re treating Saudi oil better than Canadian oil.
It’s total disloyalty to the Canadian People and the Canadian energy industry, and should disqualify the Trudeau Liberals from holding power in our great country. We need a government that puts our own people and our own industry first, something the Trudeau government has never done, and never will do.
