Kenney reveals 'fair deal' plan to assess Alberta-run pension, police and tax collection

  Kenney reveals 'fair deal' plan to assess Alberta-run pension, police and tax collection Alberta Premier Jason Kenney outlined on Saturday the mandate for a new panel that will study what the province should demand as a “fair deal for Alberta” in Confederation, including looking at ways that will take back provincial powers that have been ceded to Ottawa.  At a speech Saturday afternoon in Red Deer, Kenney said the panel would answer questions including whether or not Alberta should pull out of the Canada Pension Plan and form its own plan instead, create a provincial police force instead of relying on the RCMP for rural policing, and opt out of some cost-sharing programs with the federal government.

Take my hand, will you, and I will lead you through the wardrobe to a magical place, where the only energy is clean energy, where Tesla-driving Quebecers signal as they change lanes, and the only emissions are of a private nature. Now, as we walk through a pristine old-growth forest we come upon a great eminence, a splendid figure who picks absent-mindedly at a glorious cape made entirely of recycled plastic straws. What is this place and who is this extraordinary man?

Polarizing Quebec MNA Catherine Dorion viewed by some as symbol of left-wing populism

  Polarizing Quebec MNA Catherine Dorion viewed by some as symbol of left-wing populism First it was a quip about a line of coke. Then it was a pair of Doc Martens in Quebec’s National Assembly. Now, almost a year later, rookie Québec Solidaire MNA Catherine Dorion is back in the headlines, this time because of a short skirt and an orange hoodie. Her clothing choices have kicked off another firestorm of controversy over decorum in Quebec’s legislature, while her party calls for everyone to calm down and get back to work. Among Quebec’s commentariat, much ink has been spilled of late on Dorion’s attire. But the question of what Dorion is wearing — or what she ought to be wearing — is hardly the most interesting issue at hand.

Take a deep breath and let that sink in for a while… 4. Millions Of COVID-19 Test Kits Sold In 2017 And 2018. As we know the new COVID-19 disease appeared in China towards the end of 2019. Therefore it was named COVID-19 which is an acronym for Corona Virus Disease 2019.

It is Imaginary Quebec of course, home to Yves-François Blanchet, leader of the Bloc Québécois. Here, he speaks for all of Quebec. Here he has declared that he will not help Alberta “create an oil state,” suggesting that the Quebec economy isn’t itself greased and fired by decayed dinosaurs. If we had more time I would say “Pull up a plaque-encrusted neuron and sit a while in his fertile imagination.”

But time is fleeting, and we must hurry. Reality waits for no one, not even for this minor but magnificent ruler of Imaginary Quebec.

Now that we are back to the world of facts and truth let’s tour real Quebec in the province’s best-selling vehicle, the Ford F-150, a gas-guzzling stud of a truck. You’ll see a lot of them running around rural Quebec, often with a dead moose in the back. It is interesting and relevant that rural Quebec is where the Bloc Québécois won almost all its 32 seats. The Dodge Ram and GMC Sierra are also big sellers in the Quebec backwoods, the sixth- and seventh-best sellers in the province, respectively.

Everything You Need To Know About Pipelines—And Why They’re So Controversial

  Everything You Need To Know About Pipelines—And Why They’re So Controversial From Coastal GasLink, to LNGs and Bill C-69, you've heard all the terms in the news. Here's what they mean.Add to that the concerns of affected communities and the complicated process of obtaining true consent from First Nations to build on unceded land. The federal government set new controversial standards for pipeline approvals by passing the Bill C-69 in June 2019.

Thankfully, torrents of oil pour into Quebec to power those trucks and to keep the Quebec economy moving. Much of that oil comes from countries where you’ll be severely punished for saying the wrong thing, kind of like on Sportsnet. Much of it comes up the St. Lawrence in tankers, the same kind of tankers that are banned from taking Alberta oil off the north coast of British Columbia. Quebec’s biggest source of oil is the Alberta oilsands. It travels to refineries in Montreal via a long tube known as a pipeline.

That oil is then turned into gasoline and it’s a good thing, too. Quebec’s gasoline consumption is second only to Ontario’s and is growing. In 2013 Quebec drivers consumed 25,000 cubic meters of gasoline every single day. By 2018 that was up to 26,300. Remember, 70 to 80 per cent of GHGs in the fossil fuel transportation value chain are created by vehicle combustion. The remainder you can pin on producing and transporting the oil. It turns out that in this world of hard facts, in almost every respect, Quebec is itself an oil state, even if Quebecers let other jurisdictions produce the oil that they then burn in their trucks and SUVs.

Conrad Black: Bill 21 is an outrage, but Canada must tread carefully

  Conrad Black: Bill 21 is an outrage, but Canada must tread carefully My dear and esteemed friend of more than 50 years, Peter White, wrote in the Globe and Mail on Nov. 9 of the dangers to Canada of too severe a criticism in English Canada of Quebec’s Bill 21. This measure prohibits some categories of recently hired provincial government employees who deal with the public from wearing articles of clothing or decoration that indicate religious belief or affiliation. Government monitors may judge that such articles transgress the province’s official requirement of laicism.

Besides, the 32.5 per cent of Quebecers who voted Bloc did so for many reasons, including concerns about the economy, immigration, Quebec identity and health care. We doubt that a plaid-jacket-wearing, F-150-driving welder from Chicoutimi voted Bloc because of his deep admiration for Greta Thunberg or because he could see himself with a moose strapped to the hood of the Tesla that he doesn’t own.

No, Quebec is a major importer, refiner and consumer of oil. Quebec is riddled with pipelines. Quebec drivers love gas-guzzling trucks. Quebec receives billions of dollars in transfer payments every year thanks to Alberta and Saskatchewan oil production. Quebec’s consumption of oil and gas will only grow as its population grows. Pretending Quebec will soon be off oil or doesn’t rely heavily on oil-generated transfer payments is a fairytale fit for the nursery, not for serious public discourse. Awaken, Mr. Blanchet! Quebecers are up to their knees in oil.

Now let’s have a discussion based in that reality.
