What’s that mean? You’ve heard the Con Premiers like Ford and Moe and Kenney are all threatening Trudeau, saying if he doesn’t do impossible things for the oil industry (because it’s rightfully dying), he’s threatening national unity because the Con Premiers will try to break away from Canada to have their own Petrostate?
The whole purpose of the $30 million dollar “war room” is so Kenney can intervene in the federal election on behalf of the federal Conservatives – with taxpayer dollars and no oversight. #ableg
It’s all part of the Conservative Party of Canada’s effort to exceed election spending limits. Kenney in Alberta is throwing $30,000,000 away on an “energy war” room to target environmentalists and other sane people who care about our planet. Basically it’s a way to funnel more money to crackpot media like Rebel, and climate change denial media like POStmedia. Their theory seems to be that if they can spend provincially, as a government, their ads indirectly supporting Scheer will translate into votes for him without running up the finite election spending limit federal parties face.
Chief Electoral Officer Stéphane Perrault cautioned that even if he recommends parliament look at the issue, regulating provinces would be very complex. #cdnpoli
It's basically the crux of the argument around the #carbontax court challenges too. Our Confederation didn't count on having unscrupulous Premiers across the country all owned by Big Oil and launching a coordinated attack on a federal government for the benefit of an oppo party.
The purpose of the War Room is the correct kind of socialism; sending $30M in government money that was earmarked for children's school lunches directly to fringe conspiracy theorists, fake oil sands campaigns, and Andrew Scheer's re-election fund.#ableg
The so called Temporary Foreign Workers program is little better than indentured servitude. That’s a form of slavery, where the employer holds an unreasonable level of power over their workers, so the workers will not stand up for their human rights.
Ask yourself it’s a coincidence that the people in Weyburn as TFWs stayed on the job after the “restructuring”, but the long term, Canadian, employees were unable to for whatever reason(s). The reason(s) made them so embittered, they contacted the media to shame their former bosses, ending any hope of going back to work for them.
P.S. I’m hoping for a better, feel-good story out of Weyburn soon to counteract the complete nonsense it’s putting out lately.
