Justin Trudeau and the Erasing of the Harper Legacy
As you know I really like this image of Justin Trudeau slowly but surely demolishing Stephen Harper's foul legacy.
And today he took another step in that direction.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says his job is to look out for Canada's best interests and not act as a "cheerleader" for various pipeline projects as the previous Conservative government did.
And since we now know for sure that the National Energy Board can't be trusted to enforce safety or environmental regulations.
The National Energy Board is not doing enough to track whether pipeline companies are complying with conditions set out when projects are approved, according to a new report by the federal commissioner of the environment and sustainable development.
It will demolish all the hysterical pipeline arguments the shattered Cons have been using to try to discredit Trudeau and divide this country.
Remind Canadians that it's up to the NEB, not Justin Trudeau, to decide the fate of the Energy East pipeline.
And since we also know that Harper stacked the National Energy Board with a slew of last minute patronage appointments.
This only gives Justin Trudeau even more of a good excuse to scrap the NEB, and replace it with a new body, with a new name, new members, and a new mandate.
So that's why I really like this image too...
Because we really are rubbing out his monstrous legacy.
Rub a dub dub.
Bye Bye oil pimp.
Buh bye dictator...
