From: "John Feldsted" <>
Subject: Trudeau accuses opponents of stoking regional divisions

Trudeau seem incapable of understanding that actions have consequences.

His government changed the rules to require the environmental assessment of a new pipeline to consider carbon emissions upstream and downstream of the pipeline proposed. TransCanada threw up its hands and cancelled a $15.7 billion project.

The change in assessment process is unfair as it applies to new pipelines only. Petroleum movement by ship, rail and truck are not subject to the same standards. Environmental standards are either enforced or not. If they are standards, in place facilities must be measured as well as new projects. If shipments to the east coast and central Canada are not measured against the new standards, the playing field has been deliberately tipped against pipelines.

There is nothing intellectually dishonest about calling a spade a spade. The changes to environmental assessment standards walk like a skunk, look like a skunk and stink like a skunk. A bit of lipstick and accusations that critics are stroking regional divisions don�t stop the stink.   

Oil tankers are one of the worst polluters on the planet. The carbon emissions on a trip from the middle east to Canada are enormous and the return trip is only a little better. If it matters with a pipeline, it matters with a ship. As far as downstream pollution is concerned, that is nonsense. No matter how petroleum is delivered, downstream usage is the same.

Trudeau can show us that his environmental assessments are fair by applying the same criteria to all modes of oil and gas transportation. Until he does, criticisms of his moves to block the energy east pipeline are justified. We are watching what he does and the disconnect between what he says and what he does is disturbing. 150 years of favouring central Canada to buy votes makes us rightfully suspicious.

This is one more example of where Trudeau�s world of ideology based on dreams and idealism hits a brick wall of practicality and reality. He can�t wish away our need for petroleum products to keep Canada and its economy moving until alternate energy sources and infrastructure are perfected and abundant enough to take over.
