    he will always have that super cucked laurentian liberal voter but he has pissed off the wamens when they were his biggest fans last time. pissed off the indians and shit on them for the last 4 years.most of the youth vote will be rather apathetic this time around. the 2019 campaign has been anything but hip or cool. pissed off the entire prairie provinces . the maritimes still love him. he will get toronto and parts of vancouver and part of quebec. i am thinking the election map will be a lot more blue and orange than last time

    Since it is a petro-state, Ottawa runs from failure to failure with inconsistent policies that spare oil companies in the West,” the platform reads.

    But as much as it is anti-Ottawa, the Bloc is perhaps the most explicitly anti-Alberta it has ever been in its history. While Alberta and Quebec have in the past worked on shared concerns, the Bloc in its 2019 iteration sees little but Alberta taking Quebec’s money while having designs on its green fields and pastures for dirty pipelines.

    “Oil provinces are very wealthy and have developed those resources with money from all across Canada, including Quebec,” said Bloc leader Yves-François Blanchet at the English-language leaders’ debate. “Now, we have paid for development of oil in western Canada and you make us pay again with this idea of buying a pipeline over there.”

    Then oil prices tanked. The pipeline plans stalled. International giants, including Royal Dutch Shell Plc, ConocoPhillips and Total SA sold off their major oilsands assets. Capital investments are on track to decline for a fifth straight year to an estimated $12 billion this year, about one-third of the 2014 level, according to the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.

    Several operators — Suncor, Canadian Natural Resources Ltd., Cenovus Energy Inc. and a few others — are still active and generally profitable. But they’ve managed that by cutting costs, including, of course, that of labour.

    “People aren’t getting the overtime that they used to get, or they’re not getting any overtime at all,” said Sandra Landry, an insolvency trustee at MNP Ltd.

    If things weren’t bad enough when oil bottomed around US$26 a barrel in early 2016, the largest wildfire in recent history swept through the Fort Mac area that May. It forced the evacuation of more than 80,000 people, destroyed almost 2,000 homes and caused about $3.7 billion in insured losses, making it the country’s costliest natural disaster.


    These days, the company will only consider expansion projects that will be profitable with the benchmark U.S. oil price at US$45 a barrel, about US$10 less than the current level. Some oilsands projects undertaken a decade ago required US$100 a barrel to break even.







    Texas shale sends its apologies.

    But we are about to see the same thing
    Bloomberg - Are you a robot?

    We've left the boom and bust and consolidation took hold in the oilfields with increasing efficiency as larger operations run higher tech wells. That's what'll have to happen in Alberta to get cost down, but you guys have the X factor of trying to artificially limit supply outlets.
    We are doing the opposite on all sides of the aisle New U.S. pipelines poised to start price war for shale shippers
    The jobs won't come back at the same volume, but the pay will and be more stable.That is if you guys get setup to send the stuff anywhere, which some of your leaders seem intent on blocking.
