  1. The Trudeau government has spent over $700 billion since 2015.

    What do we have to show for it?

  2. Not with Liberal government, look at the Nova Scotia tidal project which Scotland waited 5 years for a permit to generate electricity by tidal waves. They abandoned the project because of the federal government ineptness

    1. @Tony Commisso it is smart for the Government to go slow on that project. Tidal waves generators have been known to disrupt sea life (ie seafood), let’s not get ahead of ourselves to rush to make this happen. This is one of those projects that should go slow. If the Fisheries are messed up, Nova Scotia would be screwed!!!

    2. in what way.. subsidies to pay for testing ! to pay for energy that costs more to make than is worth while !

  3. 💯 Great content and I thank you for breaking it down!! Even with the current crypto dip. I’m still Glad 😊 I can smile back at my portfolio of $53,700 made from my $5k weekly trade within a short period.

    1. A transformations from my investment of $4000 to a $15,400 in just 2 weeks, so excited😊.

    2. Same here, I hold Mrs Bates in high esteem because of the weekly profit am receiving trading with her strategies

    1. Even if the world falls completely, we’ll still have more than enough for ourselves. Canada holds the third largest oil reserve in the world.

    1. Oilsands extraction puts around a barrel into the air for every barrel produced. This is basically the main issue stopping the expansion of Canadian energy.

  4. They want our natural gas. And energy is our largest export. You won’t replace oil and gas with imported solar panels.

  5. will we have to subsidize their wants…or make them pay more than we have to pay…

  6. You mean Olaf did not come to Canada last summer to get a tour of some pie in the sky hydrogen scheme?
