Wayne Whitney gives us his thoughts on the current state of the oil and gas industry…
To my brothers and sisters of the oil field, from coast to coast in Canada. We are being put under the gun by a federal government that couldn’t care less about us. In our oil fields of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, we are going broke, because we can’t get our oil to market. This federal government of our fearless leader, (Justin Trudeau) spent 4.5 billion dollars (3.5 billion dollars U.S) which funnels down to Kinder- Morgan head office Houston Texas (laugh) for a pipeline that is sitting idle. Must be nice when we in the oil fields wonder where our next loaf of bread is coming from.
We have bleeding hearts that will protest against our pipeline going to our coast so we can sell our crude oil to the world. But there has been no anti- protest for Enbridge Line # 3 from Hardisty Alberta to Superior Wisconsin (another pipeline to the USA.) It amazes me that the federal minister of natural resources and energy (Amarjeet Sohi) is from Edmonton Alberta the oil hub of oil country. It is stated that we have over 35 million barrels of crude oil in storage ( maybe even more now) that has to go by train. These trains are getting longer and longer hauling crude oil, when does the next disaster happen. Our farmers are upset because their grain is hard to get to market so they can pay their bills. The saying goes, (“ if you divide the people, you conquer the people.”)
We need to stand together for our government is dividing the people.
We need our pipelines from coast to coast to take the pressure off our people. If we could get these pipelines in maybe Canada would move up on the world market from 7th place to 3rd or 4th and the USA would no longer be number 1. For they get 43% of oil from Canada, which they are exporting from USA to around the world,(if the people in Ontario do not know that 60% of their crude oil is brought in from the United States) I hope that all Canadians know that the people are the government. For one government found out in the 1990’S ( Brain Mulroney) government, that when people stand together the government will be devastated.
