Justin Trudeau has a long term goal for Alberta, a very shitty goal, a goal that’s going to cost millions of jobs.
Trudeau said on Friday his plan is to phase out all oilsand mines in Alberta.
“We can’t shut down the oilsands tomorrow. We need to phase them out. We need to manage the transition off of our dependence on fossil fuels but it’s going to take time and in the meantime we have to manage that transition,” he said in Peterborough.
Trudeau also said again that it is the responsibility of the national government to get Canadian resources to market.
Brian Jean who fights for the Alberta oilfield and families affected by the harsh economy was quick to respond.
In a news release, Wildrose Leader Brian Jean said Trudeau’s remarks “confirm Albertans’ worst fears about his Liberal government and its plans for our energy sector.”
“By vowing to ‘phase out’ the oil sands, Mr. Trudeau has declared his true feelings towards our province, and Western Canada as a whole,” said Jean.
“The economic benefits of the oil sands are immeasurable.”
Phasing out oilsands will cost millions of jobs, replacing them with what? Something’s that not yet invented and will cost billions of dollars.
Trudeau has a grudge against Alberta and we can see why, please share this article to let the rest of Canada know.
