Here are today’s top stories about the oil and gas industry, and how Canadian hydrocarbons make Canada and the world better!
The radical and biased foreign funded National News Obscurer criticizes Scheer for telling the truth that most of the Indigenous peoples along the pipeline support resource development and don’t need the United Nations making it even easier to block their job opportunities.
Here are some facts about Indigenous peoples and the Trans Mountain pipeline:
- Project Reconciliation is a group that believes the Trans Mountain pipeline is a pathway towards reconciliation by returning profits made from shipping resources to market to the traditional owners of the land from which those resources came.
- Indigenous ownership of the Trans Mountain won’t just be a pipeline toward reconciliation, it will also have the added effect of reducing emissions in other countries.
The narrative of Indigenous peoples being against resource development might sit well with the National Observer’s donors, but it doesn’t sit well with the thousands of Indigenous peoples that will benefit from pipeline ownership.
Stephen Maher: While Scheer hit a wall with his climate plan and Singh came up short on policy detail, the Green leader, an experienced debater, took over
The only effective climate plan that will have an impact on global emissions will be to export our know-how and resource advantages.
- Research shows that by exporting our hydrocarbons to other countries, produced with our high tech standards, global emissions will shrink.
- The Canadian oil and gas industry continues to take climate action through major projects like Suncor’s new cogeneration project, which will reduce emissions and provide electricity to the public.
Biased Liberal pollster releases push poll saying Canadians want urgent action on climate despite his own poll showing Canadians prefer the incentives of Scheer’s plan over the taxes in Trudeau’s. Canadians know taxes only push production, jobs, and emissions to other countries.
- This study by the Fraser Institute shows that a $50 per tonne carbon tax will fall disproportionately heavily on capital-intensive sectors like oil and gas that will result in capital and emissions shifting out of Canada, known as carbon leakage.
- Taking a global approach to climate change by reversing carbon leakage through attracting high-emission offshore production in areas where Canada is a lower-emissions producer will generate a double dividend of new economic benefits and lower global emissions.
