  • Newly Unemployed Keystone XL Pipeline Worker Drops a Reality Bomb on Both Biden and Buttigieg - Biden terminated the careers of thousands of Americans and for little more than a political show.

    A former Keystone XL Pipeline worker is speaking out about the unemployment troubles he and his fellow workers are facing due to the Biden administration’s decision to stop construction on the years-long project suddenly.On day one, Joe Biden signed an executive order to halt the construction of the pipeline meant to bring Candian crude oil safely and swiftly into the United States. Democrats gave the excuse that the project was being halted due to its adding to the climate crisis but there is still no evidence that the risk of leaks outweighs the damage done and oil lost during transportation....

    Transportation Minister Lloyd Hines says 2021-22 will likely be another record year for road building in Nova Scotia. The annual government highways plan is usually out by December, but the document has been delayed by the pandemic, said Hines. "We are anticipating that we will match or eclipse the number from last year, which will be a cumulative amount of over $1 billion spent on improving our highway system in Nova Scotia in the last two fiscal years," the minister told reporters following a cabinet meeting on Thursday. Hines said the budget right now for roads and highways for the...

    On his first day in office, Joe Biden killed the Keystone XL pipeline. This controversial move was condemned by the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters (UA). “In revoking this permit, the Biden Administration has chosen to listen to the voices of fringe activists instead of union members and the American consumer on Day 1,” Mark McManus, president of the UA, said on Monday. “Let me be very clear: When built with union labor by the men and women of the United Association, pipelines like Keystone XL remain the safest and most efficient modes of energy transportation in the...

    “We are encouraged to see that conversations will soon commence on the reopening of the Canada and Mexico land borders, to help enable the safe return to travel when the time and conditions are right,” AAA Senior Vice President of Travel Paula Twidale said in an email to the Washington Examiner Monday. Biden spoke with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau late last week. Trudeau said last Friday that high rates of cases in parts of his country made him skeptical of the idea, though Canada is looking at implementing coronavirus tests at its...

    Nearly five years after one of the worst rail disasters in Canadian history, a small town at the centre of the tragedy is still grappling with the aftermath. When Tom Harding walked out of the courtroom after being acquitted of criminal negligence causing death, he didn't speak. The former train driver instead ducked away from the news cameras, overcome with emotion. His one-time colleague, Richard Labrie, did have something to say. "Could you back up a little bit so I can look at my paper? Because my eyes are full of tears," the ex-rail worker urged media crowding around him....

    Two years ago, while on a hospital gurney, my mother told me that she had to be cynical to be Black and survive in this country. With scent of antiseptic wafting in the air and alarms blaring out codes and directions, she took the hectic moment to explain that there was a part of you — or her, anyway — that would always want to feel safe here but expect to be disappointed. You would love to trust the law, even as the regularity of police brutality built up your reasons not to. And that someday you’d find a health...

    Don’t worry, this lonely stretch of track will soon see thousands of tanker cars traveling its rails. They’ll be hauling Canadian oil down to the Gulf and empty cars back up to Alberta, burning up a lot of hateful fossil fuel in the process. Jason Kenney, the leader of the Canadian province of Alberta “noted that without the pipeline, oil must be transported to Gulf Coast refineries by truck or train, both of which are sources of much higher emissions.”Funny isn’t it, the President of the party that claims to champion “the working man” and the environment cancelled the Keystone...

    Now that the Keystone XL pipeline is cancelled by President Joe Biden, the world is supposedly greener. Really? Fact is, it's the opposite. Instead of getting more environmentally friendly, the carbon footprint from that oil will be increased substantially because it will be shipped by truck and trains above ground, instead of through underground pipe. It is also much less safe and efficient: Shipping by trucks and trains means more accidents -- and an increased human cost. What sheer brilliance! I thought all of Biden’s decisions were going to be based on facts and science. I read the other day...

  • Premiers tell Trudeau they ‘want to go to war’ with U.S. over Keystone XL: sources

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau faced anger from some of Canada’s premiers Thursday over U.S. President Joe Biden’s decision to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline project — including heated calls for punishment that could fracture ties between the two allies. The First Ministers call, which lasted just over an hour, also touched on the coronavirus pandemic and issues with the nationwide vaccine rollout, sources told Global News. But Canada-U.S. relations in the wake of Biden’s controversial move dominated the discussion. “Some premiers want to go to war” with the United States over the cancellation, aides of those who participated in the...

    Even before Joe Biden was inaugurated as president, he and his team were calling for an end to the Keystone Pipeline. The fourth leg of the energy project, Keystone XL, has been delayed, then resumed, and now delayed again by three presidents since 2015.It attracted opposition from environmentalists, becoming a symbol of the battle over climate change and fossil fuels. At least that’s the story we’ve been hearing from mainstream media, environmental groups, and the Biden administration. But Donald Trump Jr. has a different, more lucid take on what’s been happening.Also worth noting it doesn’t end oil transportation it just...

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday said his administration was “disappointed” with President Joe Biden’s decision to revoke the permit for construction on the Keystone XL oil pipeline. The 1,700-mile pipeline was planned to carry roughly 800,000 barrels of oil a day from Alberta to the Texas Gulf Coast, passing through Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma. “While we welcome the President’s commitment to fight climate change, we are disappointed but acknowledge the President’s decision to fulfill his election campaign promise on Keystone XL,” read Trudeau’s statement, released just hours after Biden was officially sworn-in as the U.S.’...

    Poor Justin Trudeau. The Canadian prime minister must have been relieved to be done with President Donald Trump, only to learn that Joe Biden plans to tell Canada to pound sand as one of his first priorities. According to reports, Biden wants to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline immediately, a pointless and economically destructive gesture meant to appease his party’s climate fanatics.

    The Supreme Court of British Columbia decided on Thursday that it has jurisdiction take on a case by billionaire philanthropist Frank Giustra against Twitter over defamatory tweets made on the platform which "allege involvement in a supposed conspiracy known as 'pizzagate.'" Giustra, a billionaire businessman living in Vancouver, brought a defamation case against Twitter after being accused of being involved in a pedophilia ring by promoters of the pizzagate conspiracy theory. The theory alleges that a number of high-profile business leaders and politicians, most of whom affiliated with the US Democratic Party, are involved in an elite pedophilia ring. The...

    The line of cars snaked through downtown, large Donald Trump and “Stop the Steal” flags protruding from their windows. The motorized rally last Wednesday was in some ways a familiar sight in this season of endless dispute over the U.S. presidential election. As it unfolded, protestors egged on by President Trump stormed the Capitol building in Washington. But the vehicular demonstration didn’t take place anywhere in the United States. The pro-Trump event traversed downtown Toronto, as other fans of the U.S. president held similar gatherings in Vancouver, Calgary and Red Deer, Alta. And some Canadians actually made the trip to...

    A Montreal police officer pulled over a woman heading to work at 4 a.m. Tuesday, demanding to search her lunch bag as he questioned why she was out before the provincial curfew lifted. “I got my letter out of my glove compartment and he asked for my ID, I gave him that,” Sarah Vresk told CBC. “He then asked me what was in my bag.” At that point, Vresk asked why it mattered he see her lunch bag when she showed him proof from her employer, a snow-removal contractor, that she needed to be out during curfew. The officer threatened...

    I have written here before about Delta Hospice in British Columbia, which has been under unremitting pressure by the government of the province — including a funding cutoff — only because it refuses to participate in euthanasia. It is now being forced to lay off clinical workers and faces eviction. From the press release: The board of DHS deeply regrets being compelled to take this action. Tragically, as the video and the attached background document make clear, we have been left no other choice due to the Fraser Health Authority canceling our service agreement and 35-year lease. Fraser Health is...
