      Ya swilling more propaganda. Denying the reality of science for profit. Not to mention not action from either the federal or provincial gov to transition O&G workers to renewable resources, just constant arrogant ignorance on BOTH sides. Ones denies O&G is a prob, the other constantly whines abt climate change but does literally nothing to help the citizenry struggling to make this transition. Ineffective, useless crony politicians

    • Renewable energy is not the answer , because renewable energy is not likely at anytime soon will be profitable . Renewable energy needs subsidies or bribes for someone to invest in it . Since renewable energy doesn’t make billions and surpluses ,then it won’t be able to pay for expensive social programs like health care and education .

      @Shane Wilson Did u literally just advocate for corruption in the form of bribery? I am shocked that some Canadian’s are just as arrogant abt their ignorance as many Americans. FFS.

    • @Jonathan Edward You have no science for your claims. None! You are Leftist and CANNOT act with Facts or Logic because they are Patriarchal.

  2. So it’s a propaganda wing.

    And a waste of taxpayer dollars.

    Nice!

    • Kenney is stalling and hoping everyone forgets the damage canada is
      doing to Alberta. What justin sis doing is a modern and more vicious
      replay of the 1980 national Energy Program. Vancouver s the largest coal
      port on the continent, but justin wants to stop the use of coal here.
      he stated he will phase out Alberta oil. justin takes 20 billion a year
      income tax from Alberta. Step dad pierre removed scenes from the West on
      the back of paper money and replaced them with stuff from quebec.
      academic dropout justin hangs out with academic dropout greta
      thunderbird…..

    Ya.. big money is on the side of the environmental movement. What toddler believes that? Alberta should have diversified its economy decades ago.

      Typical leftist babble. Do some research, oil only makes up about a quarter of Albertas economy.

    • Gregg Arsenault | December 11, 2019 at 4:43 PM | Reply

      garrett knecht but they still believe it’s the future of Alberta prosperity.

    • You are getting advice from little children who dont even have a grade 12?

    • Most oil rich countries did the same, keep spending their oil revenues and relying on them until it’s too late and start panicking once the taps run dry it they aren’t competitive any longer. This happened to a lot of Gullf states. I think one of the exception Is Norway , they created a sovereign fund with oil revenue for the future of their population and ktir diversifying their economy

  4. They’re still clinging to oil 😂

    How did you come up with 30M Jason? Thought AB was broke

    So there is a 30 million dollar war room while disability is frozen, unbelievable

    • Kerri Grandmaison Interesting point. How do you think disability benefits are funded? Is the money a) printed b) magically appearing in the treasury or c) through royalties and income tax on high income earners in oil and gas? I see this as an investment in Alberta’s and Canada’s future.

      Go move to America if u are advocating for the use of coal. The comment section is littered with absolutely idiotic comments. Yes western alienation exists, but STOP embarrassing yourself.

    • Jonathan Edward: High Johnnie! Coal is needed for many things such as the smelting of water from Lake Winnipeg to make it useable for building materials and various herbicides and antibiotics. Most of the coal in Manitoba it trucked in from Shamattawa or flown in Selkirk.

      @Fluffy Muffin Sorry mate, I’m not buying your obfuscation of fact. This debate is abt energy use for daily life ie. PIPELINES, not abt secondary uses for coal. Your comment clearly points out “Vancouver’s the largest coal port”. U are doing what all apologists do, employ cognitive dissonance to support your argument.

    • Jonathan Edward: I am your mate? Second largest coal port is at Jenpeg and the barges go all the way to Churchill and then loaded for China and India. Justin did the right thing to use made in china steel for the 40 billion LPG project. I have always voted Liberal!

  8. Can someone tell me a person in canada who has not benefited from fossil fuels? Hey there isn’t one!

  9. Massive waste of taxpayer dollars
    Big business teaming up with climate change deniers and all its doing is making Alberta look like they’re 20 years in the past

  10. I didn’t know Alberta was at war.

    • Yes , with Quebec or have u not seen or heard Quebec bloc leader & his vile comment about albertans and how he doesnt care that albertans are jobless and commiting suicide.

  11. Those hippies look cold
    I hope they didn’t run to their vehicles🤣🤣
