Catherine McKenna Implies Energy Sector Jobs Aren’t ‘Meaningful,’ Even Though Those Jobs Are Saving Canada From Total Collapse

The incompetence and failure to understand reality by politicians like McKenna is becoming more and more dangerous to the Canadian People.

Catherine McKenna won’t let anything – not even a virulent pandemic and economic collapse – stop her from pushing her out-of-touch ideology.

Amazingly, McKenna is even now implying that oil & gas sector jobs (the kind of jobs she wants to eliminate) aren’t meaningful:

“After we get through #Covid_19, the world will have a choice. Respond with an economic & jobs recovery stimulus that jumps starts the clean economy & creates meaningful jobs .. or not.”

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with seeking to boost the economy, including aspects of the green economy, when the crisis has passed.

However, the issue here is that McKenna is implying that current jobs aren’t ‘meaningful.’

Yet, you know very well that oil & gas sector jobs, along with truckers driving trucks powered by gasoline are literally the thin thread keeping Canada’s entire society from collapsing.

Without oil and gas we wouldn’t be able to get food to grocery stores. We wouldn’t be able to get medicine and medical supplies to hospitals.

Without oil and gas, the idea of civilization itself would be crumbling as you read these words.

That means oil & gas sector jobs are among the most meaningful jobs in our country right now, and are literally saving lives.

For McKenna to still be unable to realize this, and to still be pushing her ideology is very dangerous, and it’s the kind of thinking that is an increasing risk to the Canadian People.

Peter Coleman, President of the National Citizens Coalition, issued a response that most Canadians will undoubtedly agree with:

“Hey Catherine. Do us a big favour and shut your pie hole. People are super suffering and don’t need your one trick pony green nonsense …especially now”

So what is wrong with us that we let a babbling idiot like Catherine McKenna have a voice in our parliament? This person has obviously lost her mind. I cannot honestly recall her last relevant or intelligent remark in respect to how we conduct our lives as Canadians.

Well well…the climate harpy needed a dose of attention. I’m beginning to think she actually believes her bogus shtick–She’s finally swallowed her own lie. “Tell it loud; tell it often; people will begin to believe you.”


She’d be squealing otherwise if her house couldn’t get heated due to O&G not being supplied to heat her house with natural gas, propane or electricity. She’d also be pretty upset if the government building she has the privilege of occupying couldn’t be heated, not to mention how she would get around.


she has snowshoes


McKenna once again proves her redundancy…..

Catherine McKenna talks about meaningful jobs, like the one she has that doesn’t contribute anything to our economy or help to keep workers employed, but costs taxpayers a fortune. Canadians want real stable, well paying jobs, not the unicorn pixie dust jobs she spouts off about. Green energy jobs cost billions of taxpayers money, destroys economies and leaves everyone with low paying unstable deadend jobs.


Why is she even getting media time, she has proven over and over again she is an airhead.

McKenna just confirmed she has NO understanding the magnitude of what’s happened to REAL PEOPLE, REAL JOBS AND REAL BUSINESSES. Like a tsunami that has swept in, it will leave in its wake devastation of jobs, businesses and people’s livelihood. There WILL be severe political implications for how badly she and her gov’t handled this monster. VENGEANCE WILL BE SWIFT!

I wish you were correct Moe, but this woman was re elected, as was JT and his band of merry warriors. That’s what convinces me that Alberta and ideally Saskatchewan will have to exit a confederation that will always advantage Eastern Canada


Please don’t forget about BC, maybe with the exception of Vancouver!

When reality is replaced with delusion……there can only be calamity…….


Canada is in deep trouble with people like this in government. Catherine McKenna doesn’t live in the real world. She will put Canada on the road to ruin.
