Brad Wall and the Attack of the Oil Pimps
As I told you yesterday, those of us who live in Central Canada are under attack by the wild eyed oil pimp Brad Wall.
Who says if we don't accept his West-East pipeline, he'll cut off our equalization payments and leave us freezing in the dark.
And although it's going to feel like forty degrees tomorrow we are worried.
Because it seems that nothing will stop him !!!
Nexen is apologizing for a pipeline break that leaked five million litres of bitumen, sand and water at its Long Lake oilsands facility in northern Alberta this week.
The detection system did not work in this case, so it isn't known how long the substance was leaking. A contractor walking along the pipeline discovered the spill.
And I mean NOTHING.
Increasingly hot and dry climates, the result of global climate change, have led to a worsening of wildfires around the world, according to new research. In turn, wildfires are aggravating climate change by killing trees that could absorb carbon in the atmosphere.
But despite that scary vision of an oily or a fiery future, it seems that Wall's threats have forced the other Premiers to surrender.
Canada’s premiers reached a deal on a Canadian Energy Strategy, hailing it as a “monumental” document that recognizes the importance of the country’s energy industry to the economy but does so in an environmentally sustainable way.
However, the strategy waters down commitments to fight climate change, as the strongest pledge – a promise that all provinces would adopt absolute cuts to greenhouse gas emissions – has been stripped from an earlier draft.
So I think it's time to remind everyone who lives here, that Wall is just campaigning for an election coming up in a few months. That he is as Rachel Notley herself said just "showboating."
And it is just another absurd photo-op like some of the ones from his last election...
And I think it's also time to remind the good people of Saskatchewan to tell their Great Leader that we don't need his grubby petro dollars.
That we will determine our own future, thank you very much. Alienation works both ways.
And will they please keep their absurd oil pimp at home, before his greed kills us all.
Or we die laughing...
