|The light of truth is blinding...|
Prime Minister Stephen Harper has left a new legacy for Canadians: Become Chinese
We will soon be living in Chinada and speaking Mandarin.
We won't have to worry about the well-being of Canadians or our historical friends the Americans on the world's longest undefended border.
We won't have to worry about Quebec separatists.
We won't have to worry about speaking Quebecois
We won't have to wonder if our flag has a maple leaf. Why?
It will all be Chinese.
In an 'oil deal' that 99.9% of logical, thinking Canadians did not want, China's state-owned oil giant CNOOC has been allowed to take over Canada's Nexen, a $15B mistake. A huge swath of the Canadian oil sands will now be under the control of the Chinese government.
We cannot believe our eyes. This decision casts shame on the "Harper government" --And yes, let us, in this instance, call it what it IS...the "Harper government". It certainly does not represent the interest of Canadians.
Is this deal good for Canada? NO. Let us exclude the opinions of short-sighted politicians with their own self-serving agenda, greedy oil barons and foreign national communists alike, who will make billions of dollars.
Let us totally ignore the Alberta "government" , which is blinded and inebriated by oil fumes and
The question should be:
Since when is it in the interest of Canadians to sell control of Canadian resources to a foreign Communist nation?
What is this government up to? Should we "follow the money?" The truth always comes out.
The approval of the Nexen-CNOOC deal will change Canada forever.
This huge mistake is reminiscent of a previous huge mistake by the "Diefenbaker Conservatives" to kill off the AVRO ARROW -an incredibly bad error in judgment and a decision that destroyed Canada's huge technological lead in the aviation industry.
This huge mistake is also reminiscent of another HUGE mistake by the "Mulroney Conservatives", the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) which made billions of dollars for big Corporate North America, but did nothing for ordinary Canadians. Canadians continue to pay incredibly high prices for comparable products.
NO disrespect, but all Canadians should be asking this question:
Like the "Diefenbaker Government", why is this Harper Conservative "government" so short-sighted?
Why do arrogant Conservative governments repeatedly make basic, essential errors in government that ARE huge mistakes, unmitigated disasters with bad long-term consequences?
It seems only Stephen Harper himself could make a decision as bad as John Diefenbaker's AVRO Arrow decision was.
To wit: It will now cost Canadians $60B to "buy" jet fighters that still cannot out-perform the highly advanced, high-performance Avro Arrow scrapped some 50 years ago.
John Diefenbaker sold out to the USA aviation industry, and now Stephen Harper somehow appears to believe it's a fine idea to allow a sell-out of Canadian resources to China--at any cost.
A couple of days ago I was walking around in "Canadian" Tire, a 'big' Canadian retailer that now sells everything made in China.
No matter what I picked up to look at, it was "Made in China". From baking pans to dishes to appliances to tools. Soft goods, hardware, everything in between. "Made in China". Canada --has now been 'made by China" but let us not be TOO impolite.
North America has lost the ability to produce anything. How sad for Canadians. How sad for North America. It's NOT for lack of rich people or a dearth of investment money in Canada or the USA. Follow the money. It is going offshore to Asia.
Increasingly, little of anything is now manufactured in North America because "big Corporate North America" and the rich can make bigger profits and more money outsourcing in China--where virtual slave labour, uneducated people, being paid slave labour rates, and living in poverty --under iron-fisted Communist rule-- are the labour force of choice.There are virtually NO environmental regulations in China, as witnessed by the horrific, stifling and deadly pollution that is everywhere.
With the CNOOC takeover of Canadian oil approved, Harper's recently gutted environmental rules will come in handy to China. Environmental concerns will be ignored "the Chinese -Harper way"
Pollution in, and destruction of Canada's north is now assured to be the planet's biggest environmental disaster.
CNOOC will also "conveniently" now dictate the necessity of construction of the Northern Gateway Pipeline through the pristine BC coast line --an earthquake prone area. Our "trusted Conservative politicians" who have known this from the very start will 'throw up their hands like foolish children and say "Well, what can we do, it's "our" industry"...... and "acquiesce smugly" -- knowing they had this planned all along.
Now that the deal is approved, the government "swears" there won't be any more deals like these? We know better. ALL Canadians know that Conservatives, like most politicians, say what is convenient to their egos and pockets at the time. The truth eventually proves them to be blatant liars and deceivers and as such, unfit to govern. We "wrested concessions from China in this deal?? Let us now laugh in disbelief at the blatant lies.
China is already laughing; they will also laugh and walk away from the unprecedented ecological disaster and Canada will be without remedy after the oil sands resources are depleted, and China will 'conveniently' move on to target other resources.
This is a sad day for Canada. Harper's new 'legacy'. Be Chinese. Be happy. be stupid. Shop. Pat ourselves on the head.
Let the government run the important things".
We are far too polite to say what should be said.
The fact is, this decision is a betrayal of the trust of Canadians.
This is not only an issue of sovereignty over Canadian resources, it is an issue of lack of common sense and short-sighted, very poor governance.
Stephen Harper and the Harper Government" must resign in shame. We no longer have any confidence in this government. This agreement must be reversed.
Is that Incoming I hear?
