Where was this openness and willingness to work on making these bills work for western Canada prior to the election?
I seem to recall numerous amendments being put forth on both C-48 and C-69, the majority of which were all ignored. Now that they have been shut out of the west, and lost major ground in the country, they decide to listen?
Sorry but after the past four years of inaction, claims of supporting a key industry, numerous photo-ops combined with hollow rhetoric of a keypipeline being in the national interest, while racking up billions in debt, zero progress and billions more in lost investment that has led to even more middle class job losses, the very ones this inept government made claims they were fighting for, you will forgive me if I call BS.
It will just be more of the same smoke and mirrors, platitudes and photo-ops that will accomplish nothing.
If this past week with the CN strike, the possibility of a major commodity shortage to one province has shown, a strong resource sector is important to the entire nation, not just a couple of provinces, and it is high time these governments and those opposing the industry that has been a major economic force, as well as provide key products to daily lives of many, start realizing this fact, or live with the consequences of their narrow minded tunnel vision of a decarbonized world.
