It’s a total embarrassment that we import oil from other countries.
Many people are surprised to find out that Canada imports oil from foreign countries.
While much of that oil comes from the United States (which makes some sense considering our countries are right next to each other), much of it comes from many thousands of miles away, including from countries like Saudi Arabia.
This is because of our pathetically failed leaders who didn’t build up our refining and pipeline capacity, leaving much of Canada’s oil landlocked in the West.
Justin Trudeau’s decision to cancel the Energy East pipeline was a huge mistake and a huge missed opportunity, which left much of Canada reliant on foreign oil. In effect, Justin Trudeau kept Canada poorer and more vulnerable, while making foreign countries like the Saudis richer.
It’s an embarrassment for Canada – with all of our massive oil wealth – to be importing foreign oil. Below, you can see where that oil comes from:
This must be brought to an end.
Canada needs full energy independence ASAP.
