Even though Quebec just got awarded another 5 years of equalization payment worth nearly $60 billion, they still banned some oilfield work within the province.
On June 6 it was announced that Quebec government is banning fracking for shale gas provincewide.
Quebec is also part of the reason Energy East got cancelled by the Canadian government.
It’s very hypocritical to receive billions of dollars from oil producing provinces and then ban oilfield work.
There isn’t a single politician in Quebec speaking out on the unfair equalization payments, shame on Quebec.
