Big oil and finance are fighting it out and Canada is the chess board that game is being played out on. The pieces on this board are complex and famous. From Steven Harper to Neil Young the strings are being pulled and these pieces are being moved. Political parties and protesters have been bought and paid for, investments in oil tankers and pipe lines have been laid down. Now the game is on and the profit empires are in play.
The board in this complex game of move and counter move is the oil sands, This is an industry in Canada that has had a lot of investment money put into it and is ready to pay off big time. As much as the environmentalists want it stopped that is not going to happen. The only question at this point is who will profit from it and who will not. The pieces in this chess game are not black and white however, grey is the colour of both sides. Both sides in this game are using dirty tricks and the average Canadian does not have a stake in the game.
One side has bought government, not just Harper, all of them. The sell is Jobs, Jobs for all and prosperity. This side is also pushing for pipe lines. East and west as well as south, if that is in the cards. The problem with tar sands oil is it needs to be moved to be refined. As it stands currently it’s shipped south to American refineries where the Americans sell it back to us at a cost. If Alberta oil can be shipped west it opens Asian markets. Piped east we can send it to our refineries there. (see line 9) Recently there’s been a proposal to reverse an existing line that carries foreign oil from east to west.
Side two opposes this along with any plans for pipe lines. Side two has spent big money buying protesters and the very vocal left wing political machine. Though corporate donations to socialist media and non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) like Tides Canada, the Ford and Rockefeller foundations this faction prefers the oil going south by rail. Side two is invested in American refineries, rail companies and oil tankers. To fight against plans for pipelines they engage their army of paid agents and environmental dupes on the left to protest against oil sands expansion and oil pipe lines. Using environmental/communist/socialist groups and anarchist/black bloc activist protesters and union shills they fight a social war.
With dupe protesters locking themselves to pumping stations and anarchists organizing native protesters though the NGO sponsored Idle No More movement, side two is in full swing. They even arranged for Neil Young to do a charity tour across Canada speaking out against the oil sands while leaving a big carbon footprint with his rich man’s jet plane.
Side one never letting a good crisis go to waste, uses the main stream media to play up the dangers of oil transport by rail. Citing the recent disasters in Lac-Megantic and New Brunswick, the media and politicians have pointed to the dangers of shipping oil by rail and are now calling for the replacement of most commonly used thin hauled tankers. The type of tankers used to ship oil by rail is now a topic on the table of the Canadian political landscape.
Side two counter moves with socialist media and internet bloggers using the threat of enviro-terrorism and reminders of trees spiked in Clayoquot Sound to punctuate magazine covers of oil pipe lines with lite dynamite. The fear of home grown Canadian terrorism is now also on the table.
While the stock markets flog their filthy wears of investments in tanker car manufacturers and pipe line companies, The elite movers and shakers use their bought and paid for assets in this country to move the pieces around. The media and trained monkeys in parliament follow their scripts, the paid protesters and anarchists block traffic, burn police cars and have their drum circles and the game goes on. Move and counter move.
The average Canadian however has no stake in this game. Whether the oil he uses comes from Saudi Arabia, Venezuela or Canada we will still pay too much for it. As much as the environmental movement and the agenda 21 communists want us to stop using cars and heating our houses with oil and gas that’s not going to happen any time soon. No, this game of fear and money is not doing any of us any good.
As Canadians we need to recognize that there are powers in play here that are using us for both sides of an agenda to make rich people richer. Those hippie activists are as bought and paid for as the politicians selected for our elections whether they know it or not. The game is rigged and we’re not in it. Best we can hope for is to clearly see what’s really going on when it comes to Canada’s natural resources and to kick that board over if we can get close enough.
