Trudeau’s buying a dying pipeline project — but it won’t be built

It’s not just a bad deal. It’s a shady one.

Even Trudeau seems to realize that this is a bad decision because his government is trying their hardest to move it forward in the shadows — avoiding, wherever possible, any forum for public scrutiny.

Trudeau might have tried to prevent it but the people did have their say

Altogether 70 MPs were invited to People’s Town Halls on the pipeline buyout but only 10 of them attended (3 of whom were Liberal).

The facts simply don’t line up

Against this reality, Trudeau wants to spend billions to buyout a pipeline? That’s like bulking up in matches when your house is on fire. It’s turning up the temperature when you’ve already burnt your toast. It’s not just ridiculous: it’s immoral, unethical, and aggravates a global catastrophe.

Resistance is fertile
