So, it’s the day after the re-election of Justin Trudeau’s Liberals and I see this on CTV News:
The story says that: “Dozens of Husky Energy workers streamed out of the company’s downtown Calgary location Tuesday morning carrying envelopes and paperwork signalling they’ve been laid off … [and] … Several workers, who did not want to be identified, confirmed the company had informed some of its workers it was making staffing reductions … [further] … One worker leaving the building said she believed “hundreds” are affected.“
Husky says that it is adjusting its workforce to better suit its capital plan and strategy ~ translation: we’re going to do less in Alberta. This might not have happened if Andrew Scheer was the prime minister-designate; he not. This might not have happened if Justin Trudeau had won a majority and was not dependent for his political survival on Jagmeet Singh; he didn’t.
Just Trudeau sabotaged the Energy East project and now the resurgent BQ says everything is negotiable except French-language rights and no pipeline through Québec. While many analysts say that the Liberals will not dare abandon the Trans-Mountain pipeline, the NDP made opposition to it and to oil exports from BC ports central to its election campaign. Will Trudeau need the Bloc to build Trans-Mountain? Will most Liberals accept being in league with a party that wants to destroy Canada?
Is Husky Energy just the first?
Is this ~ lost jobs, good jobs lost ~ the Trudeau effect on Canada?
