Conrad Black: Justin Trudeau’s co-ordinated assault on Canadian energy
It is necessary to highlight the speech of the throne that contained a declaration of war in the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan and in the Canadian oil industry could have seemed an exaggeration. However, it could be said that it was a reasonable interpretation of what Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on the subject in 2017. It should be noted that after that he indicated the next day that he had been “wrong”, but he did not retract or alter that position; This being the case, it is clear that this only stated that it should have been worded with more care, presumably to disguise its meaning.
It has certainly been an efficient and skillfully executed assault and has largely been carried out behind a façade of familiar camouflage to the broad concept of indigenous rights, in a way that steadily approaches the implicit concession that the regime established by all who came to this country after indigenous peoples are affected by compromised rights and legitimacy.
Closing a circle
It is important to bring up a relevant fact and it is that it has already been indicated previously that the Trudeaus have closed the circle. And it is that 50 years ago, Pierre Trudeau expressed his intention to consolidate what was called Indigenous Affairs in the welfare system, and his son is negotiating “nation to nation” with all the hundreds of tribes and bands of indigenous peoples within this country. There is the possibility that it may temporarily be an effective tactic to disguise the government’s environmental ambitions, but it is empowering native litigious aggression that will lay waste to the country until Canada’s sovereignty is justly reasserted.
Clearly, the four ways of government towards its objectives are regulation and legislation, incorporation into Canadian law of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), the imposition of what are called “standards of clean fuels” and the expansion of protected and conserved areas. This being so, it could be said that each of these four policy areas is apparently independent and presents itself as a distinctive approach towards a desirable goal. However, they are really coordinated and intend to exterminate the oil industry. Not only is the climate change target a wild conjecture, but it also is an attempt to strangle Canada’s largest industry and its most trusted growth resource, and deliberately crash the employers millions of Canadians depend on.
