VIDEO: Jason Kenney Slams Trudeau’s ‘Loans,’ Says “Stop Doing Damage”

People in Alberta aren’t asking for handouts says Kenney, they want the government to stop hurting the oil industry.

United Conservative Party Jason Kenney slammed the Trudeau Liberals for their announcement of loans to Alberta, saying it’s not what Albertans are asking for.

Instead, Kenney said people want the Liberals to stop hurting the energy industry.

On Twitter, Kenney went into detail:

“1/ I have spoken to thousands of people in Alberta’s energy industry. Not a single one has said that what they want or need is government loans for “energy diversification,” ie today’s federal announcement.”

“2/ What the industry needs does not cost a cent. – Scrap Bill C-69, the No More Pipelines Act – Scrap Bill C-48, the tanker ban – Reverse the veto of Northern Gateway – Scrap the regs on up & downstream emissions that killed Energy East”

“3/ – Withhold discretionary transfers from provincial govts that obstruct federally regulated interprovincial pipelines – Work with the Govt of New Brunswick on its effort to revive Energy East. No veto for QC – Review charitable status of foreign funded anti-energy campaigns”

“4/ The industry has seen the flight of ~$40 billion in capital to oil & gas investments in other countries over the past 3 years. Equity investment is down ~90%. Market cap of many companies down by 1/3. Tens of $ billions cut from capital budgets. Duration of unemployment in”

“5/ Alberta has tripled, to 22 weeks on average. Gone from lowest unemployment in Canada to highest outside Atlantic region. Per capita GDP is down 7% since 2014. Monthly payroll is down 10%, $1 billion less than 2014. Thousands of bankruptcies & insolvencies.”

“6/ The federal response? Killing Northern Gateway & Energy East, surrendering to Obama’s veto of KXL, bungling TMX, rewarding the BC Govt’s obstructionism with over $1.4 billion in infrastructure & job training transfers, a bill that will prevent any future pipeline proposals,”

“7/ a federal carbon tax, a tanker ban on Canadian oil, etc. And now $1 billion in EDC loans for “energy diversification?” Does that mean wind mills & solar panels? I’ve never seen a government more tone deaf.”

Kenney also spoke about it on video:

These critiques of the Trudeau Liberals are spot on.

Trudeau has once again failed the province of Alberta, and failed Canadians. As I said earlier, despite his attempt to bribe Albertans, Trudeau’s anti-oil agenda continues.

Trudeau is planning to bailout the establishment media with $600 million taxpayer dollars. He wants to buy them off. But unlike the establishment media, I don’t take taxpayer money.
