Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sparked anger in the oil-rich province of Alberta on Friday for saying Canada needs to phase out the oil sands.
Trudeau told a town-hall meeting in Peterborough, Ontario that they cant shut down the oil sands tomorrow, but they need to phase it out eventually. [ ]
Trudeaus comments caused outrage on social media and criticism from Alberta politicians. Premier Rachel Notley said the oil sands are not going anywhere any time soon.
Alberta opposition leader Brian Jean said the oil and gas industry provides thousands of good-paying jobs and if Trudeau wants to shut it down, hell have to go through him and four million Albertans first.

This nutcase is “moonbeam north.”
Always doing the exact opposite of what is good for the country.
Castro’s bastard needs to be phased out.
I do a fair amount of business in Canada and from experience I can tell you it’s two countries. Manitoba and to the west and the other side.
The other side produces the Trudeaus.
So now it’s their turn? Pipeline to nowhere?
I’m sure he meant “dug” out. No, really.
No cotton, no problem.
Trudeau’s premiership is what needs to be ‘phased out.’
He should have gotten a vote of no confidence for that tribute to Castro alone.
Subjecting his whole nation to his irrational CO2 fears, taboos and phobias. Disgraceful.
Alberta should secede from Canada and join the United States
Even Castro was too smart to shut down anything bringing in revenue for his coffers.
Trudeau is just a solipsistic POS.
This Justin Trudeau is just awful, he makes Obama look like George Washington or something. It’s like the Canadians elected Justin Bieber PM. Good luck!
Maybe Little T can tear the provinces apart like Big T almost did.
The other side being proggie froggies.
LOL. Probably the moment we get our side of the pipeline finally built, he’ll shut theirs down
yeah, he does have every appearance of being that communist castros bastard whelp,
just like I believe that obama creature is communist pornographer frank marshall davis’ hell-spawn,
what irony it will be if it turns out that these are both accidents inflicted upon our two nations,
What an idiot. How did they elect this dweeb? Worse than Obama.
But Jane “the traitor” Fonda said he was a meanie and not to trust good looking liberals from Canada to protect the environment.
So which is he; meanie or greenie?
I swear; liberals treat others like they/we don’t care about the environment while nothing could be further from the truth. Of course we care; we have to live on this planet too and want to leave it in good shape for generations to come but they think they have the market cornered for some idiotic reason. We can protect the environment AND have good jobs using oil while new forms of energy are developed but stopping oil production before we have an alternative energy source that hasn’t even been invented yet or even know what name it might have is just plain stupid and short-sighted.
Fine, if he must. Let Canada starve in several ways... this isn’t going to stop the Trump revolution.
