Enbridge Battle Begins Today, Stephen Harper Ran Out Of Time, And Support!

Good afternoon readers, followers and you know the NEB has approved the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline, this is no surprise, we knew that this whole review process was skewed, we also knew where and whom Stephen Harper and the Con party allegiances lay..that being with big oil energy companies..

But have no fear, this is going to get really fun, nasty and contentious...Let me give you a lay of the land for the near future..

Early in the new year Stephen Harper and his cabinet are going to give the federal nod for Enbridge`s pipeline, it will be at that time when First Nations(Every single First Nation west of Prince George) can officially file court documents, the filings will be widespread, from lack of meaningful consultation to a total failure of achieving any accomodation..These court cases will take a minimum of 5 years to wind their way through the courts, probably deacades...And yes, I don`t expect Christy Clark and the BC Liberals to adhere to any of their 5 conditions for their approval...Because, as a matter of fact diluted bitumen can`t be cleaned up once spilled in water, rivers, streams and oceans...The condition of world class oil spill response is moot, you can`t clean up spilled bitumen in water, therefor worldclass response means zippo...First Nations support has not been and will not be granted and as for BC`s condition of receiving our fair share, that will never get resolved as both the feds, Alberta and the oil energy companies themselves will not pony up cash or benefit..

Also, there is no super fund available for a major clean up, for law suits, the world fund for this is a mere $ 1 billion dollars and there are no assurities that we could access it..supertankers can`t get more than a $few hundred million in insurance, and these mighty energy companies will not pay monies out into a blank-cheque fund...After all, the Alberta oil game is a ponzi, barely profitable, the margins are very slim....And most telling, Enbridge has separated the Northen Gateway Pipeline project from Enbridge as a whole, Northern Gateway Pipeline is a stand-alone limited liability company..Meaning Enbridge themselves is not willing to gamble that project against company assets..!!

And here`s the big one, Stephen Harper has no time left, 18 months of federal rule by the Conservative party of Canada is all that is left, Harper is now in third place in party support and more importantly Stephen Harper is in third place as to who would make the best leader...Justin Trudeau and the Federal Liberals are leading the Harper party by 8% points..Thomas Mulcair is leading Stephen Harper`s Cons by 1% point..

And those polling numbers are before the Canada post debacle, ...Stephen Harper has assaulted the Canada Health act and is reducing federal funding for it, Stephen Harper is making Canadians work longer for a meager CPP pension, ..Stephen Harper is offside with all provinces on Canada Pension enhancement..

Stephen Harper has proven himself a liar on the Senate scandal...Harper has assaulted science, fisheries, environmental laws..

Harper always wins all the Alberta ridings so there is no gain there, Harper support in BC will crash even more than it already has.. Harper is dead in Quebec and dead on Canada`s east coast....Also the Conservative brand in Ontario is bruised and tainted..

Stephen Harper is out of time...

Thomas Mulcair and the Federal NDP will stop the Enbridge pipeline if elected...And for those Justin Trudeau fans and haters...Justin Trudeau was on air with Bill Good on cknw on Monday December 16/2013...He was on air between 8:36 and 8:45 am...And yes, Bill Good asked Justin about Enbridge`s northern gateway pipeline and .....Justin Trudeau and his federal Liberal party are completely against Enbridge`s pipeline proposal, he`s not against all pipelines but is 100% opposed to Northern Gateway...

(cue up Decenber 16th/2013..8:00 forward to 8:36 am)

And lastly, if Enbridge attempts to start building their pipeline before all the Courts in Canada have weighed in...Supreme court of Canada, Appeals court, all of them...There will be massive blockades, civil disobedience and war in the woods that will make Clayquot sound and the New Brunswick protests look like a tea party...

There will be tens of thousands of protesters..

I`ll have more to say on this later...However, let me be clear, today we celebrate as the charade of the NEB review is over..

And today the end of Stephen Harper is in sight..

Celebrate, have a koolaid, have a nog. I`m sending you all hugs..

Thanks for this. I knew this would be the result, and I knew the fight was not over, and I didn't feel particularly down about it, but that was quite heartening.

Grant I can recall Justin stating last year when he was in Richmond that he is for a pipeline out to the coast as long as they find another route. So it was just the route that Enbridge took that was not acceptable. Although he may have flip flopped on it by now and I never hear the media asking him the right question..

Grant G said...

cue the audio vault(Monday, December 16th/2013..8:00 am..8:35 to 8:45 am)...We already have a pipeline..It`s called..

Kinder Morgan, and it will probably get tripled up I`m not promoting Justin Trudeau, to be clear.

Justin Trudeau has been against Enbridge`s northern Gateway all along..

I don`t believe in making up false facts, Justin may have flaws, you make not like him, that`s not the point..

I`m tired of the media, Sunnews propagandits, and BC Liberal, Harper Con distortions..

Call Justun Trudeau not deep, at least he gives an answer..

Thomas Mulcair is adsmantly opposed to Enbridge`s northern gateway too..

If you want to bash Justin Trudeau or Thomas Mulcair go comment at Alex Tsakumis`s house of kissing Stephen Harper`s ASS..

We aren`t bootlicking partisans here at The Straight Goods, facts and only the facts..

Give quotes or links, no fake conversations passed off as intel here, again, you know where to get your fill of that(check above)

Enbridge has chosen a Limited Partnership-is to limit the exposure of investors of the company? Not to make good on a catastrophic spill.

Petro-China puts in bid, to help build the Enbridge pipeline.
March 28/2012

People think the Enbridge pipeline means jobs, jobs, jobs. Jobs for who? Cheap Chinese labor?

The tax revenue to BC from the pipeline is estimated at $40 million per year. That $10 a year to each British Columbian! Woo hoo!

Along side those already "temporarily" here, more to come - ?

Enbridge and Co., Christy, Allison, Stevie, and Companies, Enbridge is a no go in British Columbia.

No Hugh....$40 million per year is pocket change for the BC Liberal Government lawyers defending their crimes.

Might i suggest that, in going forward, we'll do better to look up to spot the enemy, than to cast about to the left or right.

Harper, Oliver, Kent, Clarke, Enbridge and even the CCP are all globalists working for the same oligarchy of dead souls.

A trio of Swiss researchers present the shocking truth here:

What they found is that nearly 4/10 of the control over the economic value of [all transnational corporations] in the world is held, via a complicated web of ownership relations, by a group of 147 [transnational corporations]. the core of which has almost full control over itself.

The top holders within the core are an economic “super-entity” in the global network of corporations.

A relevant additional fact is that ¾ of the core are financial intermediaries (ie., private banks). This is a single “super-entity” with 40% control of everything, and this obscene level of control is spreading rapidly, like a particularly virulent economic cancer.

When the researchers speak of the ¾ of the “core” which are “financial intermediaries”; what this euphemistic language means is that ¾ of this giant monopoly are banks and bank holding-companies. In other words, the oligopoly is ONE BIG BANK.

This is who we are really up against.

Merry Christmas to all.

"It must not be felt that the heads of the world's governments or central banks were themselves substantive powers in world finance. They were not. Rather they were the technicians and agents of the dominant investment bankers of their own countries, who had raised them up, and who were perfectly capable of throwing them down. The substantive financial powers of the world were in the hands of these investment bankers who remained largely behind the scenes in their own unincorporated private banks. These formed a system of international cooperation and national dominance which was more private, more powerful, and more secret than that of their agents in the central banks. " - Carroll Quigley, Tragedy And Hope

Lies, backed by violence said...

Their basic mechanisms of control are lies, backed by violence. Those mechanisms of deceit backed by destruction get ordered into layers, because the direction of effective violence gets buried under layers, which protect the source of that violence, while still enabling it to act.

The first book on the Art of War starts by saying that "success in war is based on deceit"and ends by saying that "spies are the most important soldiers." Through those means, the money system was built on top of the murder system, while the War Kings morphed into becoming the Fraud Kings. As money became more important than physical power, the accountants took control of the best organized crime gangs, which took control over governments, in order to back up the biggest frauds, such as the way that the monetary and taxation systems operate to force everyone into debt slavery conditions.

However, those mechanisms of backing up lies with violence have the seeds of their own destruction within them. Not only do they require wide-spread deliberate ignorance to operate, but also, as time passes, the lies get further and further way from objective realities. After all, the enforcement of legalized lies never makes those lies become true, but rather drives the society as a whole to become more psychotic!

Human civilizations are energy systems, which are controlled by their most labile components, which are the most dishonest and violent people, which are wrapped in layers of organized lies, operating organized robberies, with murder being the most extreme form of that robbery. That has made the control over civilization work through nested systems of secrecy, directing the enforcement of force backed frauds. However, the runaway triumphs of the international banksters being able to control governments, and civilization as a whole, are themselves their own worst enemies, since the more triumphant fraud becomes, the more it undermines its own foundation.

Moreover, there are much deeper factors at play now than merely the triumphs of the international banksters creating a fundamentally fraudulent financially accounting system to pay for pludering and strip-mining planet Earth. There are more and more signs of the times that we are reaching real limits to being able to continue to do that.


Basic food crop productions are not growing like they used to be able to, and were therefore expected to continue to be able to:

While the GMO food crops are more and more demonstrated to have been developed in psychotic ways, since that agribusiness was dominated by the same kinds of banksters that dominated everything else through mechanisms of lies backed by violence, attempting to privatize the planet, while actually killing it off through that process:

Qugley's "Tragedy" is much more obvious than his "Hope."

Each time there is another short-term success of another increment of more legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, driving the direction that civilization develops in, the more overall psychotic society becomes. We are way past merely "Ending the Fed" as any kind of sufficient solution to our problems becoming trillions of times bigger than any that ever existed before in human history. But nevertheless, I too hold on to my own mutant version of Quigley's "Hope," no matter how implausible that appears to be at the present time ...

I don't think Enbridge can unilaterally decide to go ahead despite court cases. Note the Tsihlqot'in got a injunction against Taseko's surveyors same day as they were spotted on Tsihlqot'in traditional territory.

Don't forget: the SCoC is the highest court and its decisions are final---it has already ruled on the Constitutionality of FN claims and on mandatory meaningful consultations for any project on un-ceded traditional territories.

I know you're all up and positive about this; I remember several other times you were .. saying this is the way it's going to go .. BC elections come to mind (especially when all the polls were telling us this is how it's going to be); my, how soon we forget and get a bit cocky, if I may use the term. Look what happened last time .. and right up to the last minute you and some other bloggers were like this .. but remember, the BC Liberals ran mind control ads for gullible BC'rs on radio and TV non-stop for a month up to the election. Do you think, with Federal conservatives, they will do anything less come closer to the election. Corporate type conservative governments all over the place have learned well the method of mind control. Rich donors from Alberta (oil) I heard contributed something like a million dollars to CC's re-election campaign (where did the money come from to run that blitz of ads I wonder?) SH may be a horrible PM and GCampbell perhaps just as much, but they are very crafty, skilled politicians in some ways and they know how to read the lay of the land, which ridings to target (non-stop), how to stay on topic with one or two "fear the boogie man" type issues, etc. Also, the conservatives will receive huge corporate donations before the next election. I could go on and on, but will end by saying don't hold your breath any more than I will be. Whether we like it or not, corporate control (oil industry and others)unfortunately is not dying out my friend .. and remember there are some millions of Canadians that do not read political blogs. They are still highly influenced by the MSM. Fight the fight and keep up the blog etc, that's great, but I only caution you to be optimistic, yes, but very cautious in assumptions; the fall after is easier to handle if it's disappointing. Good Luck to you!!

Now we get the same focking BS from the federal NDP. Can't believe it!!!

A new article from the Sun:

"Mulcair said he’s not going to oppose the Kinder Morgan project, which submitted its National Energy Board application last week. He said the NDP recognizes the importance of getting Canadian oil and gas to the B.C. and Atlantic coasts to avoid dependence on the U.S. market."

I mean. WTF? Bitumen running along the Fraser River estuary and huge increase in oil tankers in Burrard Inlet and the Georgia Straight with its estuaries???!!

Frankly, I have had enough with these corporate oil ass kissers! HarperCons, TrudeauLibs, and MulcairNDP. Birds of the same feather flocking together.

No doubt in my mind anymore!! Green Party all the way. They are the only ones still sticking to their principles.

Good work...appreciate honest reporting such as this. Sometimes the corruption & propaganda is so disheartening, it's nice to know there are others out there who see things for how they really are.
