If you ever doubted whether Canada’s government is acting like a useful idiot for U.S. interests, the passage Friday of Bills C-48 and C-69 in the Senate provided ample proof. Independent researcher Vivian Krause has stacks of documents to prove it.
But first, in Alberta, Premier Jason Kenney went appropriately nuclear over this.
“The passage of these two bills not only undermines Canada’s economy, but also the Canadian federation,” Kenney said. He’ll undoubtedly be criticized for saying this by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and other members of the Laurentian elite. But this isn’t so much a threat as a warning.
“Their passage brings us closer to moving forward with a referendum on a constitutional amendment to eliminate equalization from the Canadian Constitution. If Albertans cannot develop our resources within the federation, then we should not be expected to pay the bill in the federation,” he said.
And it’s a very, very hefty bill. According to Statistics Canada figures, Alberta is the largest net contributor to confederation, by far.
Krause — the Vancouver-based researcher, who over the last 10 years has been following the money trail behind environmental activism in Canada — backs up every claim with tax filings and other documents.
She has traced $600 million that has flowed into Canada from U.S. foundations to restrict the development and export of oil and natural gas from Canada and provided the senate committee with an 80-page document that showed each of those grants that specifically refers to a tanker ban in B.C.’s waters.
As she stated in her compelling testimony on May 7 before the senate committee that spent thousands of hours studying Bill C-48, Krause found more than 50 grants that specifically mentioned a tanker ban or tanker traffic.
Hey, Bigot: Where's the criticism of foreign money influencing politics in Canada? Or is it OK because, Progs?
My only question for Premier Kenney at this moment, is:
How far do you need to be pushed before a separation referendum becomes a reality?
Not “if” but when.
Because there’s no other stopping old eastern Canada from stealing what is our future.
It returns to the front page, then leaves for awhile, a gov’t is turfed out, another is voted in with their shitty empty promises that “this time it’s different”… then shitty eastern Canada votes the elite centrists back in,
but it’s always the same.
We work for eastern Canada’s benefit, not our benefit. The Constitution of Canada favors the eastern provinces, there are no property rights, some groups are more important than others, the SCOC makes rules that act like acts of parliament. Our taxes go up, and then we’re told we’re the ones in the wrong.
Canada is broken. There’s no repairing the damage. Break it up. Then sign trade agreements, or don’t.
Time to dial up my MLA & ask the question...
Just a meat eating, mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging, Harley riding deplorable troglodyte peoplekind, back from a better place...
