Dif­fer­ent dilemma

The London Free Press - - LETTERS -

Re­gard­ing Erika Simp­son’s col­umn Dis­sent, dar­ing and death

(Nov. 3).

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
