Advisers warned B.C. premier that blocking pipeline against the law
British Columbia Premier John Horgan, who has vowed to use every possible means to thwart a Kinder Morgan Inc. pipeline expansion, was told by legal advisers last year before taking power that blocking the project would be against the law.
That hasn’t stopped the 58-year-old former pulp mill worker from digging in his heels to stop the $7.4 billion Trans Mountain expansion project, sparking a national uproar and drawing sharp rebukes from his counterparts in Alberta and the federal government.
Houston-based Kinder Morgan threatened over the weekend to walk away from the project that was approved by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in 2016. That prospect has catapulted the contentious expansion into a symbol of fragile national unity as critics call B.C.’s obstruction of a federally sanctioned project an assault on Canada’s political system and the rule of law.
Horgan disappointed in pipeline ruling, but accepts project will move ahead
“Although I regret the federal government’s decision, it is within their authority to make that decision,” Horgan said. “It is now up to (Environment Minister) George (Heyman) and I and the government of British Columbia to ensure that as this project proceeds we have no impact on our marine life, no impact on our natural environment and we do not put at risk one of the hottest economies in the country.”
Trans Mountain pipeline “will not be built,” vow First Nations and allies
First Nations leaders in British Columbia and their allies swiftly responded to the Trudeau government’s recent approval of the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline, reiterating their long-standing opposition to the “climate polluting” project.
Once completed, the $9.3 billion Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project (TMEP) will boost the flow of diluted bitumen from Edmonton, Alberta, to the Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby, British Columbia, from the current 300,000 to 890,000 barrels a day. The project will increase tanker traffic to more than 400 tankers per year, from the current 60. The project will also expand the Westridge Marine Terminal to accommodate the inevitable increase in pipeline capacity and tanker traffic.
Justin Trudeau and the Dismantling of Canadian Identity
hus far in his tenure, Trudeau has been far more explicit about what he does not want for Canada than he has been regarding the kind of nation he envisions for our future.
One thing he does not want, as publicly stated shortly after taking office, is a Canada based upon “national identity.” This bold assertion, in effect, tells us Trudeau does not believe in a Canada defined by a national heritage developed over 148 years of history. From Canada’s early pioneer settlers, to our cultural roots as an English and French Canadian society, through to the struggle for an identity independent of American cultural domination — Justin Trudeau has deemed these symbols of our nationhood to be irrelevant.
Trudeau Arrogantly Dismisses Canadians Who Oppose UN Global Migration Compact
Apparently, Trudeau thinks that being against giving control of our immigration system to the UN somehow equals opposing immigration.
With more and more Canadians – and people around the world – turning against the sovereignty-robbing UN Global Compact on Migration, the Opposition has officially called for the Trudeau Liberals to not sign the agreement.

Singh invokes Tommy Douglas to pitch 2019 election platform
NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh summoned the legacy of Tommy Douglas — the father of universal health care in Canada — while unveiling his party's 2019 election platform today, pitching voters on a plan to dramatically expand that system to cover drugs, mental, dental, eye and hearing.
"Seventy-five years ago yesterday, Tommy Douglas was elected the premier of Saskatchewan, where he led a movement that gave us medicare and, ever since, being Canadian means doctor visits, hospital care — without having to worry about how to pay for it. That was a powerful dream, but we know that dream is not complete. We can take it further," Singh told a crowd of supporters in Hamilton on Sunday morning, netting a standing ovation.
Trudeau’s Globalist Circus is Destroying Canada
There is a level of admiration I actually have for China because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime and say we need to go green, we need to start, you know, investing in solar. There is a flexibility that I know Stephen Harper must dream about: having a dictatorship where you can do whatever you wanted, that I find quite interesting.”
This should have been one of many warnings of what Trudeau’s ‘leadership’ would bring to Canada
Trudeau announces hundreds of millions in foreign aid for women’s health, amid ‘attacks’ on abortion rights
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced hundreds of millions of dollars in new foreign-aid spending for sexual, reproductive, maternal and child health on Tuesday, helping to fill a global funding gap left by the United States’ rescinding of international abortion spending.
Mr. Trudeau said Canada must push back against attacks on women’s rights, particularly abortion rights, at home and abroad. Canada will fund this effort by gradually increasing its international funding for women and girls’ health and rights to $1.4-billion annually in 2023 and maintaining that yearly amount until 2030. Half of that yearly spending will be dedicated to sexual and reproductive needs. That is up from $1.1-billion spent right now, $400-million of which is spent on sexual and reproductive needs.
Trudeau Gives Billions To Foreign Governments, While Rejecting $19 Million For Canadians With Autism
Once again, Trudeau puts Canada last
As I’ve reported, Canada’s foreign aid has reached an all-time record under Justin Trudeau. By some estimates, the government now takes $10 billion of our money and gives it away to foreign governments every year.
This is despite the fact that foreign aid does more harm than good. That’s the point that was made by Angus Deaton – one of the top authorities on global poverty. As the New York Times reported, “Angus Deaton, an expert’s expert on global poverty and foreign aid, puts his considerable reputation on the line and declares that foreign aid does more harm than good. It corrupts governments and rarely reaches the poor, he argues, and it is high time for the paternalistic West to step away and allow the developing world to solve its own problems.”
The Fix for Canada
The Canadian government needs to represent Canadian citizens and to make Canada first. Let’s do it right!
“Canadian governments need to better represent Canadian citizens to provide a free market place with low taxes, small government and big opportunities. There are many ways for Canadians to have money freedom and personal freedom but politicians just don’t seem to get that their job is to work for Canadians so that they can pay less and have more.”
“Taxes can be reduced to a mere fraction of what they are at the present time. It’s estimated that more than 72% of a persons income is paid to some type of taxes. Politicians always say elect me and I will reduce your taxes and I will give you lots of free stuff, which makes no sense. Reducing taxes is actually pretty simple. Just get rid of things that are not needed and stop giving away free stuff. We need a say in how the country runs. Career politicians are bad for the average citizen and we have become subjects instead of citizens and we need to have someone who’s running for office to champion new and refreshing ideas” – says Brian Lovig, business man and host of rightforcanada.ca
Reducing taxes is actually pretty simple. Just get rid of things that are not needed.
A few examples to lower taxes:
Decrease the federal ridings by 100.
There are 338 ridings presently which is an over representation and hundreds of millions of dollars will be saved per year with fewer ridings and, government will be more efficient. Money saved! Billions no longer needed. Lower the taxes for Canadians!
Eliminate the federal language act.
Literally trillions of dollars have been spent on bilingualism / the official languages act, and it’s not needed. People can speak whatever language they want, no law is needed. Quebec has its own language laws and it has virtually all of Canada’s french speaking citizens and in addition to a monstrous savings each year for all Canadians there will be more trade and products when manufacturers do not need to have 2 languages on packaging. Taxes will drop like a rock!
Bring back the penny
Several hundred million dollars are charged to citizens each year by retailers when they “round up” transactions and this is in addition to the taxes already paid for the money used to buy the product! Bring back the penny. Taxes go down!
Reform pension programs for politicians.
Billions of dollars are spent annually on pensions. Politicians are well paid and can create their own pension plan like the rest of us. Perhaps create a formula like 1 year salary for each year served. Taxes would drop a bunch yet again.
Corporate welfare, grants and loans
Cancel all programs and have trillions of dollars for another huge reduction in taxes paid by Canadians. This is huge! Taxes drop and taxpayers have a lot of extra money, their money, to keep.
CBC spends and loses billions of taxpayer dollars each year. Sell it. Quickly. Billions are not needed then so taxpayers get to keep more of their money!
Abolish GST. Taxes from Marijuana sales more than replace these amounts and Canadians save 5%! Big money!
