Show Us "The Science" Justin, or, A Feeble Prime Minister Gets His Marching Orders.
A Texas pipeline company and a provincial premier whose days are numbered have given Canada's dodgy prime minister his marching orders. Justin Trudeau knows he's been bitchslapped good. He's even summoned his cabinet back from holiday for emergency meetings in Ottawa. Run Justin, run.
Kinder Morgan has given Trudeau and ultimatum - get unruly British Columbia under control or the company may kill off the Trans Mountain pipeline and sue Ottawa for billions of dollars in damages under - c'mon, you know - NAFTA. Meanwhile, Rachel in her fishnets with her stiletto thigh highs and cat o' nine tails is giving the man-boy with the legendary name he never grew into just a touch of the lash, a little encouragement.
They've given Trudeau a deadline - the end of next month to crush the rebellious Left Coasters. Don't shed a tear for Justin. He's in a mess very much of his own making. He brought this on himself.
Trudeau says the pipeline is safe. His government has "done the science." Only he's never produced this mythical science. Maybe that's because, as The Royal Society of Canada confirms, the science hasn't been done. Even Environment Canada says the science hasn't been done. World renowned Alberta ecologist, the University of Alberta's Dr. David Shindler confirms the science hasn't been done. Trudeau insists his government has done the science but he won't say what they've done with it.
Trudeau made this whole rotten business a nest of lies and now his lies are being used against him to great effect by an outfit from Texas and Rachel Notley. Rachel has Justin by the balls and he's not getting them back until she gets her pipeline.
Notley is demanding Trudeau bring the full weight of federal power to whip British Columbians into submission. She's once again talking about cutting back oil supplies to the west coast. Trudeau's resource minister, Jimbo Carr, the guy who mused about unleashing Canada's military on BC protesters, now says they're looking at every legal, regulatory and financial option to coerce obedience.
This constant barrage of abusive threats and lies is corrosive of national unity. Maybe it's time to consider whether remaining in this country is worth the price. Maybe it's time for British Columbia to level an ultimatum or two of our own.
