The Alberta Gas Fraud continues
The Canadian Press is reporting that "Green party Leader Andrew Weaver is calling for a ban on the use of taxpayer money for political attack ads after the B.C. Liberals bought billboards blaming Premier John Horgan for a spike in gas prices. It's not the first time a provincial political party has used its caucus funding for partisan purposes and Weaver says that needs to change."
This is a con. Andrew Weaver is correct in that tax dollars should not be spent on partisan advertising. However, political parties should not be given tax dollars for partisan purposes. The Greens ushered in that change when they tried to get rid of Corporate and Union donations. Getting rid of Corporate and Union donations is one thing but replacing them with tax dollars is even more insane.
It is not John Horgan's fault gas prices are over the top in Metro Vancouver. That is a lie. We are being conned by the great Canadian gas fraud. It is not John Horgan's fault that Chicago and Detroit no longer want Alberta tar sands bitumen because of the petroleum coke byproduct. BC already approved an oil pipeline for unrefined crude. John Horgan did not change that. Alberta wants to force tar sands bitumen on us when no one else wants it. That is the problem.
It's OK. Next Jason Dick face Kenney will buy adds on the Superbowl to convince us it's John Horgan's fault and that tar sand bitumen is good for us when pipelines already exist for it to Chicago and Detroit but they don't want it. Go f*ck yourself Kenney.
