Our production is down 300,000 bbls per day right now because of a coker schedualed maintence at Syncrude!
The overall thrust: We are going to hell in a basket and the Conservatives are busy saving us!
It just ain't so Elmer!
Schools are being closed. The reason given is no funding. The truth is they are setting you up for private schools as they short you on public facility. Exactly the same thing is happening in the facilities in place to care for the elderly! Its all about following the Conservative agenda.
Mismanagement if not outright thievery has cost Alberta billions and their stuck in the mud view of the market in general.
They are trying to bury you in BS; have you forget they have cost each household hundreds of thousands of dollars in their chicainary!
The Conservatives are using this BS tail of hardship so they do not have to change the discount (Brent pricing) on our oil, conventional and tar sands.
Alberta has sufficient pipeline to move all the oil we can produce for the next ten years! The panic is India will not put cash into a new development unless there is a west coast pipeline in place!
Consider for a moment; this same BS has been going on for months now and absolutly nothing, nothing at all has come of it! All the players in their games are Conservative Governments from other provinces!
The basis for their action lay in the Conservative/Republican private club and the plans they have made that are being dismantled. This association embraces the whole Conservative Party, not just the western premiers.
Lastly, this same group of Conservatives, now entrenched in provincial Governments in Canada can demand the Fed (regarless of party in power) to open the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and change anything they want to in that precious document! As it stands right now; no one can stop them.
They are, simply put, dismantling Canada!
