Re: Trans Mountain ‘pipeline is going to get built’: Trudeau dismisses B.C.’s bitumen1 week ago
Don't forget all the taxes to be removed for that $0.12/gallon, and in Alberta not 1 Social program would be financed without the tax, never mind the low income kickback from the Carbon tax you said you enjoy.
Notley unhappy no appeal on Trans Mountain
================================================== ================================================== ====
THus far- Our idiot Boy Justin and his loser LIE-berals are getting exactly what they want from the pipeline "approval process"!!!!!!!!!
LIE-berals are getting the ENDLESS DELAYS that they desire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LIE-berals have spent $4.7 billion dollars to demonstrate to the oil industry how serious they are about KILLING the Cdn oil patch!!!!!
LIE-berals are deadly serious about making Canada carbon free in a matter of a few years- REGARDLESS of whether there is ANY practical alternatives to oil!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How big a mess are LIE-berals prepared to make of our lives and our economy?
Just consider the mess made over a simple thing like location of wind turbines- as described below!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is an article illustrating why Wynne-bag LIE-berals were not fit to govern. With some comments of my own in brackets):
Plan to put wind turbine next to airport 'crazy'! Collingwood council has no say in placement!

An ill-wind in Ontario
Wind turbines generate trouble for two Ontario airports
Fraser report seeks end to wind turbines
Queen's University professor disputes wind turbine report
If you think flying by the seat of your pants is dangerous, just try flying through a forest of giant wind turbines.
That’s what’s planned for the flight path of Collingwood Regional Airport, and their local MPP is outraged.
The province recently gave wind energy company Wpd Canada approval to build eight 152-metre turbines. One is just 2.1 nautical miles from the end of the runway — just seconds after take-off and seconds before landing.
(LIE-beral lust for grvy is apparently so all consuming they are prepared to risk peoples LIVES rather than admit ANY fault in their mouldy green energy plans!)
Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson says the turbines were pushed through over the objections of the local council, which has no say over where they’re located.
“People here are in shock,” Wilson said in an interview.
“I get asked on the street, I get asked by councillors, I get asked by people at the airport, ‘Are the government really crazy? Are they really going to do this?’”
The Green Energy Act has taken away all power from local municipalities when it comes to siting turbines.
(And so what if somebody in a malfunctioning small plane gets chopped by a wind turbine while drifting off course! And why worry if that chopped plane then belly flops into your HOUSE?)
“It’s not a matter of ‘if’ someone gets killed, it’s ‘when’ someone gets killed,” said Wilson. He said a flight school at the airport may be forced to close.
(Frankly I think that limiting the number of amateur pilots wandering about taking in the scenery and burning gas for fun would be a good thing for the environment- but using wind turbines to slice and dice the frivolous use of fossil fuel in small planes is NOT the best way to save the environment!)
He’s planning to bring a private member’s bill asking the government to restore local autonomy when it comes to the placement of turbines.
“Transport Canada doesn’t have any rules for this because they didn’t think any government in Canada would be stupid enough to allow 152-metre wind turbines near airports,” he explained.
“We’re the only jurisdiction in Canada that doesn’t have that authority any longer.”
He says it’s not too late to stop the project.
Collingwood Regional Airport board has said it’s not against wind turbines — it just doesn’t want them at the end of their only runway.
(The LIE-berals are so mesmerized by mouldy green gravy that they FORCED this matter into court- and then got CAUGHT MEDDLING with expert witnesses! LIE -berals LOVE dragging their crap into court were they can use poisoned and twisted interpretations of our badly flawed constitution- written by the vile Pierre Trudeau- to try to bully opponents with LIE-beral bafflegab! Our LIE-beral constitution would not exist without the “not withstanding clause” that protects us from LIE-beral Ottawa dictators!)
“Transport Canada’s comment was if it gets bad, change your approach procedure and if it gets really bad, close the runway,” Wilson said.
“There’s only one runway.”
If the turbines go in, Wilson predicts the airport is doomed. That will have a huge economic impact on development of the popular resort area.
There’s a multimillion-dollar plan to expand the aviation business at the airport, but he’s been told that’s in jeopardy because the airport will be ruined.
A spokesman for Wpd Group, a German-based company with offices in Mississauga, says they’ve worked with an aviation consultant since 2010 and will comply with all Transport Canada requirements.
(Ford govt is right to kill off as much of the wildly costly and irresponsible LIE-beral mouldy green energy scam as is legally possible! Contracts have been signed and they cannot be cancelled- but they SHOULD NOT BE RENEWED! Let these scandalously costly LIE-beral deals stand or fall on their own merit! Spain and Germany have both invested heavily in mouldy green energy and are now regretting it!)
(Spain, Ontari-owe and Germany have found the same fact- that mouldy green energy is so UNRELIABLE that it must have CONSTANT back up from other sources of electrical generation! In Ontari-owe- for every kilowatt hour of mouldy green energy we generate- there is a natural gas fired generator kept FULLY fired up and ready to taker over at a moments notice when the wind stops blowing or the sun does not shine on the mouldy green power sources!)
(Yes- in order to have that moudly green energy available at LUDICROUS extra cost- since LIE-berals DO like to hand out gravy to their pals- and mouldy green costs up to NINE TIMES MORE than the price for other forms of generation- we MUST ALSO keep an entire fleet of natural gas plants fully manned and ready- 24/7 just in case of need! We PAY to run TWO FULL electrical systems- but only use one- just so LIE-beral pals who own the mouldy green power can get LOTS of GRAVY!)
“We had questions regarding the proximity to the airport and whether that would raise issues,” Kevin Surette said.
(The issue was such that the judge sided with airport officials!)
Rural Ontario has suffered a double-whammy from green energy. Whammy No. 1 was having ugly turbines foisted on them. Whammy No. 2 is that many rural agricultural businesses rely on cheap electricity. And green energy has sent their bills skyrocketing.
Wilson says pilots he’s talked to say putting the turbines so close to the airport is madness.
Clearview has declared itself an unwilling host for turbines — but they’re getting them anyway.
Talk about a wing and a prayer.
That’s what you’ll need if you’re flying into Collingwood. Make that more prayer than wing.
(And now here are some excuses supplied by senior LIE-berals
WHAT THEY SAID:
• A spokesman for Minister of Energy and Climate Change Glen Murray said the turbines were approved after “the most comprehensive reviews.”
“Ministry technical experts worked with the proponent and regulatory agencies to ensure any concerns about the proposed layout of turbines near the airport and an aerodrome were considered and meet all regulatory agency requirements to reduce any risk to aviation activities,” Gary Wheeler said.
• Wpd spokesman Kevin Surette: “There are conditions that we have to abide by to ensure that aviation safety continues to be number one.
“We do have to conform with Transport Canada’s requirements in terms of lighting and in terms of the colour of the turbines.
“There have been studies done internationally on lighting and on the colour of the structures. We will meet those.”
• From an economic impact study by Malone, Given, Parsons for Clearview Township, principal John Genest said: “Approval of the current Wpd Turbine Project would be fatal to business expansion, such that, on balance, the offending turbines should be moved or Wpd’s Renewable Energy Act Application denied.”
CONDITIONS PLACED ON WPD CANADA:
—Hire an independent aeronautical consultant to recommend mitigation measures are met.
—Follow NAV Canada’s construction notification requirements.
—Meet the ministry’s noise limits and carry out noise audits.
—Create a community liaison committee with members from the public.
—Enter into an agreement on road use with the municipality.
(And of course when the matter went to trial- LIE-berals got caught out meddling with which expert witnesses would be available to testify! The LIE-beral track record on anything related to truth and honest dealing is UTTERLY SHAMELESS!)
