Rafe: Trudeau, Notley’s defence of Kinder Morgan doesn’t wash for BC

I listened to Alberta Premier Rachel Notley on CBC with Rick Cluff this week and must say she said nothing to give me cause to change my mind on Kinder Morgan. To the contrary, I asked myself how could she be so indifferent to the problems 400-plus tankers a year full of bitumen would bring to the BC coast.

I have a lot of trouble with the Trudeau/Notley attitude because the position British Columbians take is so obviously rational and natural. Just why people in the rest of Canada can’t understand eludes me. Wouldn’t they protect themselves and their homes?

Clark cutting a deal for BC?

The light went on when premier Notley talked about Christy Clark trying to make a deal with Kinder Morgan for money, saying that she understood that they were pretty close.

Of course! Clark, being a far-right-wing airhead (forgive the redundancy) has never concerned herself with the impacts all these extra tankers plus would have on our coast.

It would never occur to her that the colossal damage done by the inevitable spill would be permanent. It would never cross her mind that a simple understanding of the law of probabilities tells you accidents will happen over and over again and that, given the filthy nature of the cargo of these tankers, the damage is bound to be extremely serious. If these things don’t bother her, why would others care?

I dare say that if you mentioned Kalamazoo to Christy Clark, she would immediately think of the old Glenn Miller song of the 40s;  it wouldn’t  occur to her that it now signified the worst pipeline spill in history, six years ago, which has never been cleaned up and never will.   

If the premier of our province is not telling other Canadian leaders how serious the Kinder Morgan issue is to her province, then the press, such as it is, won’t pick up the story and all people east of the Rockies will have read is Gary Mason in the Toronto Globe and Mail.

Horgan ready to make Kinder Morgan an election issue?

The NDP's only shot at winning in BC: Embrace the NEW ECONOMY

Until very recently, John Horgan, leader of the BC NDP has been waffling, so any who gauge the opinion of a province by the pronouncements of their politicians would conclude that it was only a small group of crazies that were opposed to this pipeline. Somebody has obviously had a word with Mr. Horgan and he now realizes this is an issue upon which an election might depend. He’s seen the error of his ways and is now enthusiastically opposed.

The result of this misrepresentation of our general position makes us look bad in the eyes of other Canadians who simply don’t understand what our problem is. Although it is difficult for me to keep my cool on this subject I will try to put this in clear terms.

Public opposition based on common sense

Other Canadians must understand that the case against a multitude of bitumen loaded tankers on the BC Coast has never been stated by the government for the people. Quite, the opposite: the BC Liberal Government went as far as to sign away the province’s constitutional authority to represent its constituents on this matter, through a controversial “equivalency agreement”, which we’ve documented in these pages. Thus, it has been left to private individuals and groups. This is taken to mean that the environmentalists are hysterical and the government is calm and accurate.

In fact, environmentalists have all of the science as well as common sense on their side and, importantly, the law of probabilities. When you have this many tankers constantly using water ways such as exist in the routes out of Vancouver through the harbour and all of the channels involved, the law of probabilities says there’ll be more accidents as this traffic increases, as it surely will. 

What’s worse, the bitumen cargo ensures that an accident will have very serious consequences, especially near populated areas. Added to to this, Mr. Trudeau has approved an LNG plant near Squamish, sending tankers loaded with LNG  through Howe Sound to meet with the tankers coming from Vancouver. Mr. Trudeau chose to overlook the fact that even by standards of the tanker industry organization,SIGGTO, Howe Sound is far too narrow for the necessary tanker traffic. He doesn’t give a damn and neither does careless Christy.

It must also he understood that clean-up is a very iffy proposition. Both Kinder Morgan and the government play down the frequency and seriousness of spills and their inability to handle them, but they don’t mention that bitumen is impossible to clean up under the best of circumstances. I mentioned the Enbridge spill in the Kalamazoo River in 2010 and if one takes a moment to Google this tragedy, they’ll learn how catastrophic bitumen spills are, even when easily accessed.

Fellow Canadians, this is merely a thumbnail sketch of the consequences of the Kinder Morgan proposed pipeline extension.

Bad deal for BC

Now, here is the deal proposed to us by Justin Trudeau and Rachel Notley:

Alberta gets to fully reopen the world’s biggest polluter, the Tar Sands, and ship its shit through BC by pipeline and then, by some 400 and ever-increasing bitumen tankers a year, ship it through the hazardous Salish Sea (formerly Straights of Georgia) to foreign markets. It bears no risk and neither do the Feds.

For its part, BC stops complaining about statistically certain ruptures in the pipeline and statistically certain bitumen spills on their coast with the calamitous consequences they bring, including the safety of citizens, and agrees to support the pipeline and bear the damage.

That way, we’re advised, both Albertans and British Columbian will then be good Canadians.

Well, Madame Premier and Mr. Prime Minister, in the politest phrase I can think of, get lost. Don’t go away mad, just go away.

Neither the Kinder Morgan line, nor any other, is going to get built, next year or any other year. We have the inherent right, like all good Canadians, to protect our homes from any outside threat and that sure as hell includes the Tar Sands.

You have pushed us too far.

Deconstructing the Man-Made Climate Change Conspiracy With Lord Christopher Monckton

Published on 5 Dec 2016

Author and economic analyst John Sneisen interviews Lord Christopher Monckton in Phoenix, Arizona regarding the lies and deception behind the man-made climate change movement and how the facts and studies contradict the official narrative we hear all the time in the media.
With a hint of Aristotle’s skepticism, Lord Monckton, a very controversial figure, journalist and British politician destroys the myths surrounding man-made global warming, the so-called 97% consensus, the peer reviews, depopulation, globalism, carbon pricing and Lord Monckton even makes a stunning announcement regarding one of his recent findings!
Monckton also tackles the issue of Donald Trump, Justin Trudeau and the Freedom Force International conference he was attending, “Global Warming: An Inconvenient Lie”.

Global Tax Treaty To Be Implemented! – Globalists To Further Destroy Sovereignty

Published on 2 Dec 2016

Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen about the new treaty being implemented by the OECD which creates an international tax rule, further stopping individuals from trying to save their hard earned money from government extortion following the George Soros (Open Society Foundation) funded Panama Papers leak.
The name of the document cited is “Multilateral Convention to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures To Prevent Base Erosion and Profit Shifting”.

 

 

Unfortunately this is further vindication of us here at WAM. Both Josh Sigurdson and John Sneisen predicted that the Panama Papers false flag would be the fuel to a further deterioration of rights through a global extortion racket. One can look back at our breakdown of the Panama Papers from early on in the year and see that we predicted that exactly this would indeed happen. The globalists have become far too predictable.
Josh and John break down what this means and how it further destroys sovereignty and individual liberties. This is a horrific development and should really get the viewership it deserves. This story must get out because this is yet another example of the global government that isn’t just on our doorstep but already inside our homes.

Stay tuned for more from WAM!

Indian Prime Minister Modi Admits He Wants Cashless Society as Economic Chaos Breaks Out in India

Published on 30 Nov 2016

Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen regarding the insanity of what’s currently going on in India after Prime Minister Narendra Modi alongside his central banking masters demonetized 86% of India’s currency and cracked down on the black markets that were bringing great wealth to so many small business owners. After the blitz of panic in India, Modi recently admitted that his endgame is indeed a “cashless society.”
Modi said,
“It’s correct that a 100 percent cashless society is not possible. But why don’t we make a beginning for a less-cash society in India? We can gradually move from a less-cash society to a cashless society.”
Josh Sigurdson and John Sneisen break down how disastrous this notion is and how it leads to more debt, enslavement as well as it actually tramples individual privacy.
This is once again a communistic push by the central planners and currency printers. It not only destroys free markets that have helped bring so many hard working people in India out of poverty, but tramples freedoms that will affect the people of India far into the future. This is monetary mayhem and the people of India must stand up against this implementation!

Locals Supporting Locals – The Heartbeat of the Okanagan -Alternative Media

The City of Penticton held a public hearing on Nov 23, 2016 in regards to new proposals on the development of Skaha Park and Marina. Approximately 870 persons were in attendance and needless to say it got heated. Lots of great questions were asked but the BIG QUESTION was why is the contract not nil and void since conditions were not made from previous contract. Worth watching in full a lot of information came out on not following the current laws and procedures never mind the new COP that’s coming….

Oil companies profit from the insurance companies who pay them to clean up their own messes.

Published on 18 Nov 2016

Whistleblower John Bolenbaugh, (a former oil employee), who has spent his life savings documenting oil spills– and who turned down a 60 million dollar settlement explains the dangers of oil pipelines everywhere, and why they are designed to fail. Oil companies profit from the insurance companies who pay them to clean up their own messes. These messes are poisonous because of the molotov cocktail of chemicals used to thin the tar sands. As John puts it, he is definitely not a tree-hugger, and was not an environmentalist in any way until he saw how it was making people sick. When he realized the gravity of the situation, (as he says in his own words), “he had to do something about it or go to hell.”
John is an encyclopedia of the horrors of big oil. I hope there are more interviews to come.

“Climate Barbie” Catherine McKenna goes on luxury car buying spree

FAITH GOLDYREBEL HOST

Canada’s Minister of Environment Catherine McKenna is often caught on camera striking one of her typical Climate Change Barbie poses.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s token female cabinet minister who, when she’s not mounting a bike in high heels, is typically caught on camera attending fancy international summits where she and her like-minded climate cultists plot ways to drain our pocketbooks through, say, a country-wide carbon tax on literally everything.

To be sure, Climate Barbie’s eco-friendly image is a national priority. That’s why she absolutely had to spend over $17,000 taxpayer dollars to hire fancy French photographers to take candid shots:

Photos on bikes, photos at climate conferences– that’s the sort of look every Climate Change Barbie wannabe should aspire to.

But, what about photos of our Environment Minister in, say, a gas guzzling Porsche? Or, a Mercedes Benz?

The federal Conservatives just received an answer to their Order Paper which asked government departments to detail how many vehicles they’ve purchased, broken down by brand name.

And it turns our, Catherine McKenna is not enforcing a bikes are better transport plan when it comes to her own ministry—far from.

Behind the scenes, Minister McKenna has been signing off on Porches, Mercedes Benz, and Lexus cars for her department’s use. McKenna signed off on not one but two luxury Porsche vehicles.

But don’t worry, they were used cars — so the one only cost us $67,000 dollars and the other was a mere $63,000.

And the Lexus McKenna signed off came in just shy of $67,000 as well.

But take a look at some of the other vehicles Climate Change Barbie brought in to her department thanks to the public purse:

A Mercedes Benz for $92,000 and, finally, the crown jewel in the Ministry of the Environment’s garage (courtesy of you and me, the taxpayer):

A brand spanking new Tesla for a cool $112,000.

And McKenna’s not the only one signing off on luxury vehicles for her staff. Several other Liberal parliamentarians are doing the exact same thing.

Where does Canada’s Liberal Party get off plundering from the public purse to buy themselves fancy cars on our dime?

Here’s a tip for Canada’s Environment Minister:

The next time you think of getting a Porsche or a Tesla, why don’t you take your own advice and ride a bike instead?
