They are, you aren't listening, for an example last night the last 4 Libs. were cast out of Sask./Alta. the Oil, Gas, and employment protests were twisted into some alt. right movement by the Eastern MSM. We are dismissed, discouraged, and criticized for speaking up.
You think that here is any better?
There's a reason people from the coast are moving West. I wish we didn't have to but both levels of government are failing us here. As my dad pointed out yesterday: what have they done for us? All the local industries have left, vanished out west. You have gripes? We do too I've got lots of gripes.
You are moving West for cheaper taxes and employment, how is that working out for your friends now? What industries moved out West? I think you have to look to Mexico and China to find your industries.
It's not progressive policies that kill jobs, it's people who are in charge of those jobs either not adapting to the change in the world, not helping their employees change and adapt, or they just don't give a flying fuk and leave all together. That's not on the government, that's on business.
Bahahaha What new regulation put forward in the last 4 years were put in to support the West? Not 1 they were all put in to restrict the resource industry, and take control of our resource management all new projects must go through Ottawa now, cost Billions to get off the ground and discouraged from concept to ground break.
But I will say this, selling out to foreign countries is one line we've crossed that I seriously hate and wish there was some way to fix. And I don't care whose fault it was.
Foreign investment is pretty much gone from the West, new projects are shelved, we are in a holding pattern of wait and see. Which is really sad for a resources rich country even the territories are campaigning for more industry, the resources are there we aren't.
The Libs. are touting there new plan of planting trees for a carbon sink, at the same time criticizing the West for saying we are close to carbon neutral with all our forests and native grass carbon sinks.
