Regarding Erika Simpson’s column Dissent, daring and death
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s only dilemma is, as usual, he needs some guts. He needs to honour the contract with the Saudis and protect the income and jobs of Canadians. If we don’t, General Dynamics is likely to move out of Canada, and yet complete a similar contract.
What a gutsy Trudeau should do is tell the Saudis and all the other Middle Eastern oil producers that we are commencing a program to bring all oil imports from there to zero. He must tell the tree-huggers, the Indigenous, the George Soros supporters and the others who ignore that Canada is a hewer of wood, and a drawer of water that he will build pipelines west, pipelines east and anywhere else, which will make Canada self-sufficient in energy.
Trudeau will again acknowledge that at less than two per cent of energy usage, we will help, but will not solve climate change by ourselves. Then I might vote for him. Don McMullin London
