Pro-pipeline rallies grow

Numerous rallies and truck convoys have been held across Alberta and Saskatchewan in recent weeks to protest against federal actions that critics say will make building pipelines more difficult. Those include Bill C-69 to revamp the National Energy Board and Bill C-48, which would ban oil tanker traffic on British Columbia's northern coast.


It's about time the government did something about the oil/coal/gas issue. What good are jobs if there isn't a planet to work upon? Does nobody think about the future of the planet? Is everyone so self indulged that they can't think outside the box? If your sector is failing, and for good cause, mind you, then maybe it's time to RE-TRAIN! Nobody wants Alberta's dirty bitumen..that's why nobody is buying it and that's why no pipelines are going to support your horrid product! We aren't willing to screw up the habitat of sea life to line your pockets. So find a job in renewable, safe energy and let go of this *bleep* already! Your life and the lives of your children literally depend upon it.

Europe and Asia do not like dealing with the Middle East or Russia who supply them their oil. Canada would see an endless amount of demand for our oil, only if we had the pipelines to get it to port.

It is clear you are fine buying oil from Saudi Arabia(who has a very questionable human rights and environmental record), which we are forced to do because we do not have pipelines to support our domestic demand.

Its funny you describe our oil as Alberta's dirty bitumen and that you are not willing to screw up our habitat. It is clear you have never seen a tar sands before and after land reclamation pic - the land is far cleaner and more lush than it was prior to mining the commodity. Mining the bitumen has proven to be better for the environment rather than leaving it on the top layer of the earth.

At the end of the day, it appears as if you are the one that is self-indulged and cannot think outside the box.

Hi SC001,

"Thinking outside the box."

SC001 wrote:If there are jobs galore in Kelowna, then tell me why I can't find one that suits me? I have office admin training, but have never had the opportunity to utilize that training because, well...I have no on the job experience. Do you think anyone will give me a try? NO! I have a ton of experience and knowledge in cooking but I am now disabled in that field due to back issues, so that's out the window! I was on EI and tried to get help with training or work experience...do you think they helped? NO.

So, Kelowna, if you have jobs galore, why don't you offer a position for someone who has education and ability in administration and a knowledge of the culinary arts? Why do I have to apply for disability when I believe, with the right position, I can work? It's unbelievable! This is supposed to be the culinary capital of BC...so where the hell is MY job?

Sounds like a person with your experience would be a great fit for helping to manage one of our remote camps. So once we get the pipelines and tankers back on track, c’mon out to Alberta, I bet you’ll be welcomed. :up: :130:

It is long past time for the silent majority to remain silent. The people need to make this an election issue. For the sake of our economy and our environment, get those pipelines built!

Ahhh, c’mon, you know what camp cooks can be like, with apologies to Walter Genius who I hope is still out there somewhere, always bitchin’ ‘bout somethin’. As long as they bring the goods . . .. But I admit it’s been awhile . . ..

Why can't Alberta build an onsite refinery ? They could load the product onto trucks and deliver it to local stations.

The newest one that I know of.

Some claim "White Elephant"

They have had their set-backs for sure.


Sturgeon Refinery, Redwater, Alta.
