Written By: Robin Mathews
Date: Wednesday, May 27 at 17:45
Independent Norway has made oil wealth secure the lives of all Norwegians.  Economic Colony Canada has given Canadian oil wealth to its foreign masters.

First it was beaver pelts and fishing, and now it's forestry, oil, mining - and soon to be revealed, water. Very little of this wealth ever stayed at home, as various leaders over the decades chanted over their prayer beads the necessity of foreign investment. One of the first declarations by Boy Trudeau was the continued necessity of foreign investment (read: ownership) for continued prosperity.
It somehow seems apropos to quote a little from Robert Servie here:
There are strange things done in the midnight sun

By the men who moil for gold;

The Arctic trails have their secret tales

That would make your blood run cold;

The Northern Lights have seen queer sights,

But the queerest they ever did see

Was that night on the marge of Lake Lebarge

I cremated Sam McGee.

Oh, Robin, quit being such a hate mongering, anti-American! (Ahem.)

No, really, once again, thanks for telling it like it is. It is true- treasonous governments and politicians in Canada- from Mulroney to Chretien to Martin to Harper- and some of their provincial premier supplicants to boot- have been bought and paid for to aid in the destruction of Canada. And the lamestream media, in conjunction with the corporate hi-jacked business schools, have pushed a sort of mental colonization upon non-thinking Canadians into accepting the notion that if we don't let foreign, specifically, American corporations run the show up here, then we're all gonna just fall into deep despair and poverty, because, we surely can't run our own gig!

I've even heard it stated that it's good that the NHL has become more Amero-centric since that twerp Bettman took the helm, because, after all, 'that's where the money is' so the NHL needs America! Funny, though, smaller countries like Sweden, Finland, and Switzerland can run their own domestic hockey leagues very successfully, but the very country that invented the game surely cannot ?!?

But it goes on and on. What benefit is there to Attawapiskat from that diamond mine just to the west of it, when the Ontario government only took just over $200.00 in royalties from the parasites?

Just like lyin' Brian told us that free trade was good for us. Now we're having the TPP and Euro Free Trade shoved down our throats, which is a global NAFTA on steroids, ensuring that corporations, which are nothing more than modern day pirate ships, can rape, pillage, and plunder 'legally.'

But of course, when 'negotiation and diplomacy' fails, then our own government, in conjunction with its Amero-British-NATO partners, become genocidal war criminals to ensure the 21st century global neo-colonization proceeds.

Marc Lalonde admitted that the NEP was primarily about keeping money and political power concentrated in Central Canada. Norway-style self-sufficiency was the sales pitch, not the motivation. The motivation was pure Laurentian Consensus, because that's who the Liberals are. Justin Trudeau can put on a cowboy hat and attend the Stampede all he likes. But if he ever comes to power, the DNA of his party, not to mention his own, will kick in. He will heed the ghost of Keith Davey, exhorting him to "Screw the West". Because that's what Liberals do.

Why do you think that when Albertans decided to shift left, they went all the way to the NDP? Tom Mulcair's "Dutch Disease" comments and the federal party's Quebec-centred caucus notwithstanding, Albertans don't see the NDP as fundamentally hostile to them and their interests in the way the Liberals are. The NDP was birthed in the West. It was never a full partner in the Laurentian Consensus in the way Red Tories and the Pearson/Trudeau Liberals were, although Stephen Lewis certainly had his moments.

Marc Lalonde also admitted that had the NEP been allowed to blossom, Canada as a whole would have no deficit today. And I'd rather have a Canadian government oversee our oil patch and energy security, from coast to coast to coast, keeping it in Canadian hands as opposed to the federal as well as Alberta provincial Conservative 'Washington Consensus' handing it over primarily to US oil giants, then, ironically, after stating that government has no place in the market, allowing STATE OWNED OIL COMPANIES from Norway and China to carve out pieces of our oil patch! Again, corrupt politicians supplicating to foreign corporations, justifying it with mentally colonized rhetoric, then strangely trying to scare non thinking Canadians into fearing some 'evil' Central Canadian 'consensus.'

Sure, today's liberals would screw the west, the east, the north, the south, and the moon to boot. The liberals of the 60's to the 80's had a much more pro and pan Canadian vision. But since we're on the topic of screwing, well, none have done it better than Harper's Calgary consensus, a subsidiary of Exxon- Mobil, BP- Amoco, Suncor, and the like. And talk about screwing the west, after laying off well paid Canadian oil patch workers, only to import much lesser paid foreign workers to take their place, then they allow mass fracking, pollution the entire Alberta groundwater table, then orchestrate a fake crash, blaming it on 'low oil prices' so that they can lay off thousands more. And the Alberta provincial cupboard, we are told, is bare!

Now how's that for banker-corporate fascist greed porn?

Oh, on the Alberta NDP, we'll see. I wish Tommy Douglas didn't seem light years away.

Oh, that bunch would have found ways to spend even that windfall. The state would have grown to the extent that literally no aspect of our lives would be free of the "helping hand" of the federal government, including matters constitutionally allocated to the provinces. Pierre Trudeau wanted the state our of our bedrooms, but well ensconced in every other room of the house, not to mention the attic, the garage and the front and back yards. And Pierre's other big cash cow, gutting the military, would have been long exhausted by that time.

Nothing fictitious or invented about the Laurentian Consensus. And whatever the intentions of the NEP, it did significant damage to national unity, to Alberta's economy in the 80s, and ultimately to Liberal fortunes west of Thunder Bay. Harper is very much the child of the NEP.

If by that you mean it's highly unlikely that Rachel Notley will come out in favour of eugenics, I agree. Although I don't imagine that's what you meant.
