TORONTO — Ontario would prefer a lower dollar over a growing oil and gas industry in Western Canada, Premier Dalton McGuinty said Monday as he rejected calls from his Alberta counterpart to do more to publicly defend the oilsands.What would happen to Ontario is we started ordering all those trucks, pipes and even ball bearings from the US instead? After all, Ontario buys 0% of our oil. They get it from Iran and Saudi Arabia, those wonderful countries that love freedom, especially for women!
"The only reason the dollar is high, it's a petro dollar, driven by the global demand for oil and gas to be sourced in Western Canada," McGuinty told reporters.
"If I had my preferences as to whether we have a rapidly growing oil and gas sector in the West or a lower dollar benefiting Ontario, I stand with the lower dollar."
Ontario is in big trouble, they need to rebuild their manufacturing industries, and when Alberta comes knocking, they turn their backs, and pretend that they are better than us, because they are ordering wind turbines from Korea. Why didn't "green" Dalton get them built in Ontario? How did Alberta, who is now helping to support Ontario with equalization payments, become the bad guy? Oops forgot we are Conservatives......The PC's are Conservative in name only and Alison is a blood relative to Liberal Dalton.
Alison got a huge shock today. She thought her eastern tour of Liberal leaders had given her the big advantage against Danielle. She now looks like the country bumpkin that went to the big city, got in trouble, and found out that nobody would help her.
Both Alison and Dalton are just as deluded if they think that they can continue to spend without any political consequences.
Red Ali will come home to lick the wounds that she inflicted on herself, and she better not expect any sympathy. She was the one who said, just after she got elected that she didn't want to "interfere" with the US process on the Keystone pipeline. Now she wants Ontario and Quebec to help? Why? They have nothing to do with Alberta and what we do with our resources. We do not need their "help". Alberta can survive without the east, they can not survive without us.
Alison Redford, is not the person we need to lead us into the future, she is a relic from the past, we need fresh blood, fresh energy, fresh approaches to old problems. We need a big broom to sweep out the old, dusty, arrogant, and incompetent PC's. It's time for Alberta to wake up, to smell the winds of change, and grab that ribbon as it sails towards a new and actually Conservative future.
Get excited about voting for Wildrose! Feel the positive change that you can bring to our dynamic province, and most importantly understand that a true Conservative like Danielle, would never be caught begging a Liberal Premier like Alison just did with Dalton, only to get slapped down.
Talk about getting egg on your face!
