So long as the carbon tax and destructive regulations remain in place, Trudeau can’t ever claim to support the energy industry.
Facing a gigantic backlash in Alberta, the Trudeau Liberals are attempting to buy off the province.
They announced $1.5 billion in loans that will be distributed through Export Development Canada and the Business Development Bank of Canada.
It’s obviously an attempt by Trudeau to look like he’s doing ‘something,’ without actually changing the underlying problem.
By giving loans – note how Quebec gets billions in ‘equalization’ taken from Alberta with no strings attached while Alberta gets loans they’ll have to pay back – Trudeau is trying to deepen dependency on the government.
And his anti-energy agenda – with legislation like Bill C-69 that will make pipeline approvals almost impossible – and the carbon tax, is remaining fully in place.
So, the real problem is not being addressed, and Trudeau is trying to distract from that by giving out some money.
And clearly, the timing of this announcement is no accident. With an election approaching, the Liberals are doing what they do best: Try to bribe people with their own money.
Meanwhile, the corrupt equalization system remains fully in place, and projects like Energy East remain blocked by the federal government and Quebec government.
At the end of the day, nothing has changed. Trudeau’s agenda of weakening and ultimately dismantling Alberta’s energy industry continues, and that agenda can only be stopped by the defeat of the Trudeau Liberals in 2019.
