Canada is plagued with a gutless government of feckless Liberal nincompoops. Every bad idea of Trudeau the Lesser, and the consequences of those ideas: global warming, green energy, blockades of railways to protest pipeline construction, aboriginal rebellion, left-wing industrial sabotage – is coming home to roost. I see today the publication of the Buffalo Declaration. It may be the most significant document in the past twenty years of Canadian politics.
We are in a serious time, and fools in Parliament think they can sweet talk their way out of it, while still thinking they can shut down western energy projects on their way to net zero carbon emissions and gently remove pipeline protestors without violence in a month or two, after more “dialogue.”
The whole mess is the legacy of Gerry Butts, and the thinking he represents.
I join with others in thinking that Scheer has been at his best, and Peter Mackay has been weak and scared to put his foot wrong. By contrast, watch a real leader.
The Buffalo Declaration is found here. Read it, skim it, parse it. It is the sign of Confederation in crisis.
As Peter Zeihan pointed out five years ago, every single problem Alberta has would be instantly solved by joining the United States. Otherwise patriotic people are starting to think in these terms. I recommend you watch Peter Zeihan on Alberta so that you can understand the depth of the crisis. Said Zeihan “Four million Albertans are paying for 35 million Canadians and 8 million Quebecois” (included in the 35 million). Predicating Canada on soaking Alberta while strangling its economy is obviously insane, but this is what we are doing.
