Now that oil is dead...



6 Canadian tech companies hiring amid coronavirus

Industry leaders in Canada’s tech sector are pointing to tech companies to drive Canada’s economic recovery post-coronavirus.

All sectors of the Canadian economy depend on technology companies to meet their needs in areas such as cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, data privacy, e-commerce, clean technology and advanced manufacturing. This is just one of the findings in a new white paper report titled: The Post-Viral Pivot: How Canada’s Tech Startups Can Drive the Recovery from COVID-19.

How many of those tech companies have Oil companies as clients?

None, since the oil companies are switching to renewables.

Those 6 you posted are short term jobs IMO, once the pandemic is gone so are the majority of those jobs. Oil patch not so much 2900 positions to be filled on the Trans Mountain twin kicking off after May long weekend.

Oh DEAR ME! That is a LIE!


As we know - the oil companies ARE NOT dedicated to mouldy green power!

They are ONLY FOND OF GOVT GRANTS!


EVERYBODY LOVES FREE GOVT GRAVY!


But oh my - our govts at every level are WAY PAST BEING BANKRUPT!


Our govt are exploring previously UNIMAGINED LEVELS OF DEBT!


Thus there will be NO MORE GOVT GRANTS FOR GREEN ENERGY GARBAGE!



In fact - the REVERSE is more likely - meaning that govt will turn to OIL - our most valuable export!


To SAVE US from being TOTALLY DESTITUTE!



It is FOR THIS REASON that Our idiot Boy Justin OVER RULED the environmentalists and radical native hereditary loudmouths



and got Northern Gateway pipeline moving again!


Mouldy green power policy DESTROYS JOBS!


Oil sales PRODUCE JOBS!


Even Our idiot Boy Justin KNOWS THIS!


Our idiot Boy ALSO KNOWS the quickest way to CLEAN OUR AIR and save our environment is to CUT BACK ON GRAVY



for civil service union HOGS!



But the idiot Boy simply lacks the sense and courage to do WHAT IS RIGHT FOR THE CDN MAJORITY!

"Now that oil is dead". Strong the naivtee is in this one. And the silly fool actually believes in the Green Devolution. That's the sad part, denial of reality. You know, because mining is sooo environmentally, ecologically and habitat friendly.

ROFLMAO. Do tell- how do construction workers work from home? How about the guys that run the municipal sewage treatment plants?
Fact is it is mostly government employees that can work from home because they don't do anything important anyway.

Do you ever read the shit you link to?

Right from the f*cking article you half-witted troglodyte.

Quote:

Members of OPEC and their allies, including Russia and Mexico, announced Sunday that they have agreed to cut production by 9.7 million barrels a day in May and June, the deepest cut ever agreed to by the world's oil producers. After that, the group will steadily ramp up production until the agreement expires in April 2022.


Duhhhh YOU do the math, dumb ass.


P.S. Non-OPEC+ nations have not committed to actual cuts in production.

Nope OPEC cut 6 Million barrels/day OPEC + agreed to the other 4 Million barrels/day, if you are counting the pledge from the rest of the producing nations (Norway, Canada, USA, Mexico, etc.) the cuts could be around 20 Million barrels/day. Watch within 6 months for Oil to bounce back to around $60+ a barrel which would make alternatives attractive again.

Fact is: Anyone who worked in an office will be working from home more often now.

I see the meltdowns are hitting a bit hard for you guys lol

That will only last so long, managers will start questioning productivity, while questioning how much time person's are actually spending on work related items while being at home.

Not "anyone" - there may be "some" - seems you are generalizing. But in my line of work (which is office related) one cannot work from home. That's not to say some can't, but I believe the vast majority will end up back in the office as before or maybe even split their week between the two. It depends on whether the business involved will want to invest in the technology to do so and how productive one can be by working from home.

No big surprise that a securities scam originates in Vancouver... But on the bright side, it must be a sure sign that the tech sector is really booming

Is it not amusing that it always seems to be Yankee courts that get to clean up FRAUD that so often originates in Canada!


Conrad Black is another fine example of LIE-beral APATHY towards white collar crime!


Here is another fine example of LIE-beral TWISTED LOGIC!





It appears that LIE-berals are becoming ever more frantic to direct public anger away from their Khadr Krap deal and onto something or somebody else- how else to explain the comments I recently got about Conrad Black? The LIE-beral said this:

“Omar is Canadian. He has every right to be here and get the ten mill but what about Conrad black. This thief is a convicted criminal and not Canadian but somehow was let back into Canada. The ****er also owes us 5.1 million in back taxes. The corrupt conservatives let him back to canada”.

I say the LIE-beral got it all pretty much WRONG! First- Omar is barely Cdn- his father- the CONVICTED BOMB MAKER got into Canada after LIE-beral Jean Chretien had a major brain cramp and INVITED the swine! Chretien should have been over ruled but LIE-berals are Not strong on logic so Omar was born here like some sort of almost illegal immigrant.

He has No right to $10 million dollars from Cdns- if he wants money then he should seek it from the Taliban and Al Qaida bands he served. He OUGHT to be grateful he was not hanged as a traitor- as was standard in the old days!

And what of Conrad Black? He was born here.

Was raised here.

Made a lot of money owning newspapers in Canada, United States and Britain.

He did so well that Brits offered him a knighhood. But Pierre Trudope-the father of Our idiot Boy Justin had made it against the law in 1970`s for Cdns to accept such British awards and recognition. Trudope hatred of all things British is so huge that Our Pet/Pierre told reporters that the British war against Nazi Germany was “British Imperialism”!

When the knighthood was offered to Black, LIE-berral prime minister Chretien was apparently worried about his popularity so he decided to make a legal exception to the normal LIE-beral hostility to the Brit royal award- thus- Black was allowed to renounce his Cdn citizenship, go to Britain to receive his award and then return to Canada as an immigrant in the wealthy entrepreneur class and was granted instant entry back to Canada as per the LIE-beral deal.

Subsequently United States securities and Exchange agents got interested in Black and his Yankee operations and made a case against him and had him extradited and tried him in Yankee court and convicted him of funny money handling habits in United States.

And here is where LIE-beral argument goes really OFF- Black NEVER faced any charges in Ontari-owe- LIE-berals are SOFT on crime generally and very soft on complicated white collar crime! Its why LIE-berals declined to prosecute the guy who stole 30 million dollars in an Ontari-owe Ponzi scheme!

LIE-berals decided they did not have the resources to prosecute such a complicated case- possibly they had already run up BIG bills buying pizza and beer and hotel rooms and supplying contract signing bonuses for the teacher unions they were PRETENDING to do hard contract negotiations with? So the Ponzi schemer was simply thrown out of the country- and really- if you had just stolen $30 million dollars- how big a punishment would it be to simply get told: “leave the country with your money and do not come back”?

So- Black was IGNORED by LIE-berals- he has done nothing wrong that anybody knows of in this country. And really- one has to ask how big a crime Black committed in United States as prosecutors RE-DEFINED their legal definition of FRAUD DURING the trial!

Yes- they arrested Black and then started defining what he had legally done wrong! Black is no saint- I am reminded of the old saying that “behind every great fortune there is a great crime”!

But Black was, is and always will be a “Cdn is a Cdn is a Cdn’ to quote Our idiot Boy Justin!

Black does not come from a line of bomb making Canada hating Muslim loons, nor has he fought against western troops by blowing them up with bombs. Black is no saint but neither are any other wealthy business people and sadly- he is no more greedy or selfish than any of our civil service union Hogs! Black is just another in a long line of slippery business people -the ones that LIE-berals are currently “entertaining” in their “pay for access” dinner/and political influence scandals!

And Black GOT NOTHING- not a penny from Cdn govt after being in Yankee jail. Black was architect of his own misfortune- just as Khadr was and Khadr ought to have gotten what Black got- a curse and a grudging re-admittance to the country of his birth! Any effort to link Black and Khadr is LIE-beral logic- and that is good resason to CONTINUE calling Trudope followers “LIE-berals”!

There are two reasons for LIE-berals to keep harping on the subject of Black- firstly- as mentioned, they are desperate to change the public discussion away form Khadr and onto anything else and they think Black is a handy change of subject. Second, Black owned a pack of newspapers-including National Post- that used a LOT of ink exposing the holes and flaws in FAILED LIE-beral policy and that is the Big reason LIE-berals HATE Black and want to smear him! Black no longer has his newspapers and cannot respond and LIE-berals DO seem to enjoy kicking a man when he is down!

Canadian securities violations resulted in $45M in fines, about 19 years of jail

Quote:

OTTAWA — Canadian Securities Administrator investigations into fraud, market manipulation, insider trading and other violations resulted in more than $45 million worth of sanctions in the year ending March 2020.

The organization of provincial and territorial securities regulators said in that time period, four individuals received a total of 18 years and 11 months of jail terms for criminal cases, while eight people received 10 years and eight months of prison time for quasi-criminal cases.

The CSA concluded 23 fraud cases resulting in more than $3.3 million in penalties.

Almost 100 interim cease-trade and asset-freeze orders were issued across all of its cases, while 65 individuals and 33 companies were banned from participating in the capital markets.

The CSA says 66 alerts were released to warn the public about possible investment scams, most of which were linked to foreign businesses that are not registered to trade securities in the country but were targeting Canadian investors.

The CSA says it received 291 tips through its whistleblower program, which allows individuals to report possible securities laws violations.
