That depends totally on supply. And demand for plastics, Greta's yacht and all the other things we derive from oil.

What do you think that has to do with anything? Oil is profitable at the current price Hoid, no room for expanded capacity. Oil companies are sitting on what they got to see how this Gov. is going to restrict them further, and only doing maintenance and well replacement until the infrastructure and the political atmosphere can accommodate higher volumes of Oil.

Sometime this year, we taxpayers will receive a carbon tax rebate.
This is indeed a very exciting program, and I'll explain it by using a Q & A format:

Q. What is a carbon tax rebate?
A. It is money that the federal government will send to some taxpayers.
Q. Where will the government get this money?
A. From taxpayers.
Q. So the government is giving me back my own money?
A. Only a smidgen of it.
Q. What is the purpose of this payment?
A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.
Q. But isn't that stimulating the economy of China?
A. Shut up!

Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the economy by spending your compensation cheque wisely:

* If you spend the stimulus money at Walmart, the money will go to China or Sri Lanka.

* If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.

* If you purchase a computer, it will go to India, Taiwan, or China.

* If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala.

* If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea.

* If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan.

* If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.

Instead, keep the money in Canada by:

1) Spending it at yard sales, or

2) Going to hockey games, or

3) Spending it on a hooker, or

4) Beer, or

5) Tattoos.

(These are the only Canadian businesses still operating in Canada . )

Conclusion:

Go to a hockey game with a tattooed hooker you met at a yard sale and drink beer all day!

No need to thank me. I'm just glad I could help.

This deserves a bump

Not just the loss of innovation and the spin-off bennies from it... The tangible loss to the Feds and the Have-Not provinces comes in the form of those tax dollars not being generated.


Fewer dollars to feather the nests of those jurisdictions with aging populations and fewer workers kicking into the kitty

If you talk to some of the senior oil guys in AB, they will tell you that they operated viable E&P companies back in the 80s when the price of oil was between $10-$15.

With all the intrusions by Ottawa with permits, licensing, Enviro. impact, auditing, new taxes, etc. trying to get a bigger piece of the pie the costs have almost doubled since then. The NEB is not run by a 50/50 split between industry and Gov. anymore it is pretty much run by Gov. and their demands are getting pretty ridiculous and stifling growth.

How many are sitting on the NEB board anymore that actually has a direct impact on their industry? Use to be a 50/50 split to the end of Harper's Gov. then 70/30 for the first 3 years of PMJT, since Bill 69 just consultants from the industry with no voting power, seems fair to me /s

'Crazy busy': Boom from $40B LNG plant in northwestern B.C. leaves communities scrambling to keep up

Quote:

After 25 years of cutting hair in downtown Prince George, Freda Barton is doing something she never expected: moving back home to Kitimat to cash in on northwestern British Columbia's economic boom.
"The whole town is just crazy busy," Barton said. "I'm really excited."
Barton will be helping Kitimat's Nechako Barber Shop set up a mobile studio to service a 4,500 person work camp being built in support of the $40-billion LNG Canada export facility.
But though the mega-project is creating new opportunities in the region, it's also creating challenges for both small businesses and local governments attempting to keep up with rapid growth.
Aside from needing more barbers, communities say they also need more police and bylaw officers to respond to some of the problems that come with a rapidly growing population — but questions remain about who will pay for that.
Rentals in short supply
Already, approximately 1,000 workers are in place and the impact can be seen everywhere, said Nechako Barber Shop owner Tracy Best.
"Everybody's got 'Help Wanted,' signs," she said, adding it's difficult to recruit people into service-industry positions with high-paying camp jobs nearby.
Even so, the Kitimat Chamber of Commerce is warning people against simply showing up in town expecting to cash in.
Rental units are in high-demand so it's best to have both a job and a place to live lined up before deciding to move northwest, said chamber president Daniel Chimko.
"I mean, in terms of those [service] jobs, you can probably start the next day," he said. "But again, you've got to make sure you have your first couple months rent in hand so that you're not left out in the street."
Construction is also underway on new townhouses and a new hotel to accommodate the growing population, which isn't limited to Kitimat. The nearby city of Terrace, which acts a service centre for the region, is also being impacted, said city CAO Heather Avinson.
"With a big project like this ... there's an influx of people that come to the area," Avinson told CBC Daybreak North host Carolina de Ryk.
"And it's happening more quickly than we expected."
New activity straining local resources: City of Terrace
Avinson said while the economic activity is welcome, it also has a downside: people in the community are seeing more visible homelessness, drug use and property crime.
Avinson said she didn't want to attribute all the negative changes to LNG Canada, but said it's likely some of the challenges can be attributed to new people arriving in the region.
"It's a blessing and a curse," she said.
The city wants to add more police and bylaw officers to its roster in 2020 in order to respond, and hopes the province and companies behind LNG Canada will be willing to help pay for those costs.
LNG Canada said it's designing the project with nearby communities in mind, attempting to provide as many services — from medical to recreation — as possible within its 400-hectare work camp in order to minimize disruption.
Spokesperson Susannah Pierce said LNG Canada is also working with the province and local governments to monitor numbers on everything from housing prices to crime rates.
"We can then look at the data and get a better understanding of how we work collectively to address some of those concerns," she said.
Avinson said LNG Canada has been responsive, and eager to contribute to projects such as the recent purchase of a new highway rescue truck for the Terrace fire department. But she said what's really needed is ongoing funding to be injected into Terrace's municipal budget.
Both Terrace and Kitimat are members of the Northwest B.C. Resource Benefits Alliance, which advocates for more money from major projects in the region to be invested directly into municipalities.
Pierce didn't say whether the company would or would not be willing to pay municipalities ongoing funding, but instead said they would engage in an "open dialogue".
B.C. Premier John Horgan has committed to negotiating a revenue sharing agreement with those communities, but terms have yet to be worked out.
Meanwhile, Avinson said, Terrace is looking at a seven per cent tax increase in 2020 just to keep up with demand for city services.
"That is not insignificant," she said. "But it's what we need to do."

OH YES!! TRUE DAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The proespect of an endless series of $20 -$30 billion dollar LIE-beral deficits............................


should be scaring the CRAP OUT OF TAX PAYERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Of course our civil service union HOGS believe they are IMMUNE to any LIE-beral economic MESSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And the remarkable Conservative Pierre Poilievre delivered another of his very clever summaries of LIE-beral policy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


When asked about the chances of a "made in Canada recession caused by FAILED LIE-beral policy..................................


Poilievre responded with this gem::::::




Im aware of your text-book definition, Poilievre said in Ottawa on Dec. 17 after a reporter described a recession as two consecutive quarters of economic contraction and asked him to produce evidence that such a scenario was likely. But I will say as Reagan said: A recession is when your neighbour loses his job. A depression is when you lose your job. And a recovery is when Justin Trudeau loses his job. Thank you very much.
