because the Alberta taxpayer is the one paying to build that pipeline?

Does that makes sense to you now?

Alberta is footing what looks like $5.4 billion to build the pipeline.

How about giving Tesla $5.4 billion and seeing what you get back in 2023.

Oh my! Poor hemerHOID has enough of a headache trying to comprehend the news that an oil pipeline is PROCEEDING as planned!


And now you want the POOR FOOL to explain why LIE-berals should FORCE US to buy an extremely costly machine,


with an awkward and slow refueling system and a SHAKY RANGE that diminishes RAPIDLY in a few short years?



In related news - a quick google search of PISSED OFF electric TOY car owners reveals certain issues!


Such as the real estate agent whose electric TOY battery GOT COOKED PREMATURELY because he stopped at least twice a day to



use those "fast chargers" that apparently AINT GOOD for your battery! The reality apparently is that is you want maximum battery life-



you should park your TOY at home and use a SLOW CHARGER - OVERNIGHT so as not to generate too much heat during



the recharging process! Fast chargers are convenient but NOT GOOD for long battery life!


Or we could talk about the pissed off owners of older model Teslas whose recharging software was MODIFIED by Tesla


in order to limit the chance of having a FIRE while using a FAST CHARGER! OOPSIE - some BUGS to iron out there!


And you should know by now that hemerHOID will do his usual Messed Up Turtle imitation and pull his head up his backside



until the people asking the hard questions get tired and LEAVE!

TC Energy (of course) will put up $2.6 and Jason Kenney will cover the rest. Should be ready for 2023ish.
The oil industry once again gets the free ride - because there's profiteering afoot and when they sell all that oil for $100 a bbl the economy makes sense.
But for gosh sakes don't let a government offer any $5,000 EV subsidies

They are investing $1.1 Billion and guaranteeing $4.2 Billion, the Billion will be in shares and the $4.2 will only happen if TC defaults, so your numbers really don't work in your hype.

STANDARD hemerHOID LIE! Kenney is giving $1.1 billion -meaning a SMALL FRACTION of the total
