LEADERSHIP? Trudeau To “Pressure” B.C. Government On Pipeline, But “Avoid Tougher Measures”

Apparently, he’s afraid of “alienating voters who helped his Liberals win power,” according to a source.

According to Reuters, Justin Trudeau is planning to “pile pressure on British Columbia’s provincial government to drop its resistance to a pipeline project, but will try to avoid tougher measures that might alienate voters who helped his Liberals win power, a source close to the matter said on Wednesday.”

The attitude being portrayed by the Trudeau government is total weakness, and a total absence of leadership:

“We need to take actions that are focused on the government of British Columbia,” said the source, who requested anonymity given the sensitivity of the situation. Trudeau will hold more talks with the province as well as Kinder Morgan Canada, the source added.”

More talks?

How about using the leverage of the federal government to cut off money to the B.C. government?

How about not having just given the B.C. NDP government over $4 billion?

How about supporting Alberta’s threats to cut off oil shipments to the province?

How about a primetime speech to the nation on why the pipeline and Canada’s energy industry is important to our entire nation?

A half-assed leader would try at least one of those things. A real leader would do all of them.

Trudeau is apparently doing none of them, and having “more talks” instead, all because he’s afraid of losing some votes.

As I’ve said many times, Justin Trudeau puts his own selfish political interests above the good of our nation. With a serious crisis raging, he takes a “personal” day, plans to head off for a foreign trip, and thinks some weak “talks” are the solution. It’s not leadership, it’s total cowardice.

Great analysis Spencer.




Trudeau and his pussy hat Liberals are buying BC votes with everyone else’s money. There are few more disgusting peoplekind in Canada than Liberals.

True and lasting leadership is forged in the crucible of existential crises, such as Winston Churchill and Britain’s battle at Dunkirk to bring their army home and the battle over Britain to stop Hitler from conquering Britain.These are the real tests that prove a leader’s worthiness to lead a country such as Canada. Trudeau doesn’t see the whole picture and what the outcome will be if he fails, he only sees what is important to himself personally. Trudeau is lead solely by his ideology and things, such as facts and the future of our economy and our nation as a… Read more »

Shawn; A clean; clear; crisp analysis. I make one observation to your comment. You wrote that [Canada’s] economy is an”intellectual” puzzle to Turdeau. You’re being too kind to Trudope–His skull is empty. His “Butt” is his brain. (Gerald Butts.)

Trudeau’s afraid of ‘alienating voters’, however, I’m also inclined to believe he is literally afraid of the eco-warrior protestors. He knows his gov’t has the constitutional authority over oil industry projects it deems in the national best interest. He has NO control over the eco-warrior demonstrators who will not leave peacefully, but rather could riot in the streets and cause major civil disobedience. In which case Trudeau would be FORCED to restore the rule of law. What a terrifying thought for our trust fund baby.

He is not afraid of the Eco-Terrorists,trudeau is afraid of losing his friendship with his butt buddy butz.

When will Canadian’s wake up to the real agenda under Justin Trudeau and Kathleen Wynne Government who have been very busy implementing for decades. These 2 hypocrites and their corrupt Cabal are under the United Nations and pushing Agenda 21 on us, Canadians are uninformed on this Agenda or WE THE PEOPLE HAVE NOT BEEN GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONSENT OR NOT. I guess we Canadians are not important enough to talk to about this Evil Agenda 21. Our top politicians and mayors including most upper class city officials know about Agenda 21 and of all consequences Canadians will inherit… Read more »


He is his fathers son and his only goal is to distroy Alberta at any cost to the country and it’s people and everything over the last 2 years has just fallen into place to enable it to happen. As long as the oil is basically land locked he could eventually win. There is only one real solution a western separation B.C. could be forced or paid off if needed , in the end the west would be far better off.
