When Bombardier Is In Trouble, Trudeau Drops Everything To Help. But With The Canadian Oil Industry In Crisis, Trudeau Is Making Things Even Worse

The contrast in how Trudeau deals with Bombardier vs the Canadian energy sector shows his divisive and dishonest governance.

Every time Bombardier gets into trouble, Justin Trudeau is there to help.

Even as their executives continued to fail over and over and over again, and then rewarded themselves big bonuses anyway, Trudeau kept giving them our taxpayers money.

He bailed them out, without getting anything in return. 

He didn’t get protection for Canadian jobs.

He didn’t get commitments to keep top assets in Canadian hands.

And he didn’t get any punishment for the failed executives.

Yet, time and again, whenever Bombardier begged for money, Trudeau dropped everything and ran to help.

Contrast that with Canada’s energy industry.

The Canadian oil sector is in crisis. Oil is trading at horrendously low levels, with industry insiders saying the price for Canadian oil is so low that they’re basically ‘giving it away for free.’

Our country is losing billions, and we are beholden to only one market, the Americans who are laughing at us as we fail to compete with their oil companies and sell them cheap oil, effectively subsidizing their economic growth.

Yet, instead of helping the oil industry like he helped Bombardier, Trudeau has done exactly the opposite. He’s blocked pipelines, rejected pipelines, put regulatory barriers in place, pandered to the radicals, and is now introducing new legislation that will make pipeline approvals nearly impossible.

By doing this, Trudeau is taking sides in the economy, and dividing the country. He sends one message to the East – if a big industry gets in trouble he’ll help, while sending another message to the West if a big industry in the West gets in trouble he’ll not only refuse to help, he’ll make it worse.

And before anyone chimes in and claims that he was ‘helping’ by buying the Trans Mountain Pipeline (which isn’t going so well), just remember that he only did that after his policies made potential investors flee. His anti-energy industry agenda made things so bad, and reduced confidence so much, that people don’t see a benefit to investing in Canadian energy. So buying the pipeline was his last-ditch effort to hide his destructive policies and save a few Western seats.

Whatever Trudeau claims, the reality remains the same, the Trudeau government is keeping their foot on the neck of the Canadian oil industry, while acting like a submissive servant every time Bombardier comes calling.
