Your equalization payments, for all your socialist programs, they come from Ontario and Alberta. Yup, those "dirty" oil sands are keeping Canada and Quebec going right now, but you are too much of a political creature to understand that. It's always easy to bash Alberta. I'm curious, have you ever been here Duceppe? Or do you just prefer to pretend to know what we are doing?
Look you waste of space, you have NO say in what Alberta does, you think Quebec should have full powers to do what they want, but you slam Alberta for wanting the same thing? Here's something you will not tell people in Quebec because you are so busy blaming Alberta.
If you had to choose between Alberta oil or crude from Algeria and Angola, which should you pick?
This is the decision Quebec Premier Jean Charest faces now that Calgary-based Enbridge Inc. has unveiled plans to pipe heavy crude from the Alberta oil sands to refineries in Montreal for the first time.
Quebec currently relies almost exclusively on imported oil, with Algeria, Britain, Norway, Angola and Venezuela as its main suppliers. The Parti Québécois, along with some leading environmental groups, think it should stay that way. To them, piping in oil from the “tar sands” – the enviros' preferred term – would reverse all of Quebec's progress on climate change.
See, you don't even buy our oil, so butt out of our business. Go ahead, keep buying foreign oil, and don't let Montreal refineries benefit from our own resources, but expect Alberta to support your sorry a$$es.
Over all, Quebec imported almost $14-billion worth of non-Canadian oil in 2007, when crude averaged around $70 (U.S.). That left the province with a massive $10-billion (Canadian) trade deficit that is certain to balloon further this year, given oil's summer price spike (it hit $147 U.S. in July) and a decline in manufacturing exports.
“What Line 9 reversal will do is provide a source of reliable Canadian crude to Montreal-area refineries, helping offset their current reliance on foreign imports,” explained Enbridge spokeswoman Jennifer Varey. “One of the attractions of this approach is that it minimizes the environmental and community impact of pipeline construction.”
Oh dear, what to do, what to do? Quebec doesn't care, they will continue to import foreign oil, and bash Alberta, while Alberta helps them to pay for that foreign oil. They have the votes. We have the oil. If Quebec keeps voting the Bloq, they should start looking to other sources for their welfare cheques. Alberta doesn't need Quebec, but Quebec needs Ontario and Alberta. Hey Duceppe, what will Quebec do if Ontario becomes a have not province like Quebec? Do you separatists have no pride? Are you happy to live off the productivity of the rest of Canada. Are your unions so powerful that you have to bow down to them?
Why is it that debt free Alberta does not have a $7 a day welfare daycare program, but we send you our dollars so you can? Why do you think Quebec culture is better than Alberta's, it's not, it's just different. You do not even want to try to understand the west, we are just your whipping boy. I am tired of your ignorance of the west, I am tired of you bashing us, you show your intolerance ever time you talk about Alberta.
Duceppe you and your party, are the problem in Canada right now, you want to separate from us, yet you suck at the teat of entitlement, grow some balls, join Canada.
Why does Quebec vote for separatists? What can they do for Quebec? NOTHING! They are a rump party that has lost it's relevance in this day and age.
The Bloq is not the only idiotic party:
To the Liberals, your carbon tax will kill our economy.
To the NDP, go ahead, shut down the oil sands, see what jobs are left for your union friends.
To the Greens, do you really think Canadians want to send billions of dollars to Europe to meet Kyoto targets?
Toronto is a big city, but it is no longer the economic engine of our country, resources like oil and mining are, and that requires people who are willing to get down and get dirty. The worker bees, not the drones.
Duceppe, you and your separatist party are disgusting, how could you not love Canada?
Canada has supported Quebec, we have bent over backwards to make you at home, but still people vote to separate, or does Quebec just vote for separatists to hold a gun to the heads of Canadians? Enough.
