“Flabbergasting”

“Flabbergasting”
If you need to hear every Conservative talking point repeated without a thought in the world, try the Regina Chamber CEO’s take on CTV: “Nation building” “tidewater” “energy independence” “What’s in the best interest of the country” “a lot of money that comes from the United States that fuels these environmental groups” “Stand up when we need to stand up”

Why would getting our oil to tidewater, so it can be shipped overseas, play into us being energy independent?
His hand-waving, saying we’ll now not have energy independence, is totally false. We can build renewable energy systems, and storage systems that will provide Canadians with true independence from Big Oil which takes subsidies to keep it economically viable.

  1. That recurring accusation about pro-environmentalist money mostly coming from the States seems more and more like sin projection as I get older.

    • It certainly is. Recall how K Marshall of “Ethical Oil” danced around Evan’s questions on Power N Politics 6 years ago, when he asked if they took money from Enbridge.
