Re Energy Goal Posts (letters, Oct. 11): Canada is a nation of hypocrites. Quebec gets billions in equalization but blocks pipelines carrying Canadian oil, which substantially contributes to these payments.
Montreal’s mayor talks about pipeline environmental impact – but is okay with oil tankers in the St. Lawrence seaway, a potential ecodisaster? Denis Coderre is concerned about pipeline safety – but appears to have forgotten about the Lac-Mégantic disaster?
Canada considers itself a champion of human rights but chooses Saudi oil over ethical Canadian oil. Our federal government was given powers by our founding fathers to avoid interprovincial bickering, yet seems to cater to some provinces – even when it doesn’t make sense.
